As one of the leading beauty and well-being clinics in Northern Ireland, Alora Rejuvenation offers a range of treatments, all delivered by the latest technology.
Whether it’s pain relief for chronic conditions, a natural way to lose fat or speeding up recovery after sports activities, the clinic provides a tailored response to every individual’s needs.
Alora Rejuvenation, which recently opened in a striking Georgian building at Russell Street, in the heart of Armagh city, uses cutting-edge machines, some of which are the only ones in Ireland, to provide a client experience that is second to none.
One of the most popular treatments is cryotherapy, which exposes the body to extremely cold temperatures ranging from -110 to -150 and -170 to -240, and helps speed up recovery after exercise.
Cold vapours are released which stimulate the skin’s receptors across the whole body.
Explaining how the process works, owner Ciara Elmore said: “Exposure to the vapours create a positive effect to the blood circulation in the body, therefore speeding up the recovery from physical activity and the rehabilitation from injuries.
“The exposure to the ultra-cold conditions cause a physiological hormonal response. `Happy’ hormones, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and endorphins, flood the system and the negative impact of an elevated level of cortisol, a stress-inducing hormone, is significantly reduced.”
The Emerald Laser, meanwhile, provides a natural alternative for those wishing to lose fat.
It can be used on all parts of the body and most popular areas for treatment include the abdomen, ankles, back, hips, thighs and waist.
Said Ciara: “The non-invasive and non-thermal laser creates a temporary pore in the fat cells, allowing the fatty liquid to seep out of the cell. The liquid is then naturally flushed from the area through the body’s lymphatic system, all within a 30-minute treatment.
“As the treatment uses low level lasers, there is no downtime required and clients can carry on with their day to day routine.”
Results are visible within 4-12 weeks as fat cells shrink down into lean, healthy tissue.
For clients suffering from chronic pain, the FX 635 Laser could be the answer.
It is the world’s first and only laser that has Food and Drug Administration (FDA) market clearance for the treatment of chronic pain.
Common conditions that it is used for include arthritis, lower back pain, neck and shoulder pain, migraines, plantar fasciitis, and post-operative pain.
Ciara explained: “The treatment works by using an innovative, low-level laser technology and is also designed to reduce inflammation and pain by stimulating the muscles, ligaments and nerves.
“The body absorbs the light energy, encouraging the cells’ mitochondria to produce more adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and promote natural healing within the cell.
“Because the laser stimulates the cells’ healing, it will therefore provide pain relief with no adverse side effects.”
Users remain awake throughout the entire laser treatment and experience no burning, scarring or downtime, allowing them to get on with the rest of their day as soon as the session is over.
