Tightening Body Care-Men
Body tightening, especially skin tightening, is one of the most difficult challenges. Usually, the areas that need tightening are the inside part of thighs, arms, belly. In recent years, technology has helped us a lot in order to achieve tightening effects on the body.
At Nefer Beauty Salon & Diet Centre
if you have a flabby body, we can help you by strengthening the connective tissue, increasing collagen and elastin production with the use of state-of-the-art safe methods and machines.
Electro-muscle stimulation - EMS Training
At Nefer Beauty Salon & Diet Centre, we have a natural solution to improve the look of your body. Electro-muscle stimulation – EMS. In a tranquil, friendly and clean environment, without a crowd and always adhering to safety rules. It is the appropriate way to drop a dress size & for tightening if:
- You are tired of exhausting diets with no effect.
- You don’t like intense exercise and a room full of other people working out.
- You don’t like crowds and inquisitive looks.
- You need personalized training because of injuries.
- Generally, your free time is very limited.
- You exercise intensively, but you want to increase your stamina.
What is electro-muscle stimulation EMS?
EMS derives from the term Elecro Muscle Stimulation. That is, electrical stimulation of muscles (electro-muscle stimulation).
It is a system that sends electrical stimuli to all of our muscles at the same time. Literally, from head to toes, causing their simultaneous contraction, with no risk of injury.
It increases muscle contractions in a way that the body could not do on its own. For example, 10 reps with weights achieve less muscle contraction.
It strengthens the whole body – activating 650 muscle groups.
Each muscle can be activated and stimulated more or less intensely, depending on your mood and purpose.
The results are fast and less time consuming, while the wireless application of the electrodes gives you freedom to perform aerobic exercise.
What do we achieve with electro-muscle stimulation EMS?
Depending on the programs we will use, we can achieve the following with EMS:
- Boost of metabolism
- Treatment of cellulite
- Improvement of body posture
- Relief of back and waist pain
How does the process work?
- A vest with electrodes on the upper torso and an electrode on hands, stimulating the back (upper and lower), the waist, the abdomen, the pelvic floor, the deep back, the chest muscles.
- A “pair of shorts” with electrodes, stimulating lower leg muscles, such as legs, thighs and, if desired, calves.
The above electrodes are wetted in order to penetrate the muscles.
Then, we adjust the power up to a level that is comfortable for each person and the session begins.
After wearing the special vest and shorts with the electrodes, what do I do during the session?
Depending on the fitness and health of each person, you can perform from moderate intensity to active, dynamic exercises. Many times we also use some accessories such as fitness tires, TRX straps, treadmills, balls, step etc.
Exercises are always conducted under the guidance of trained personnel.
In the case of musculoskeletal problems or athletes with strong demands in the practice room, then the exercises are guided by a Physiotherapist.
I have injuries, can I do EMS?
When we have people with musculoskeletal problems that make it difficult for them to move or restrict their movement, then the sessions are supervised by our physiotherapist, Giota Vlaseros, who has extensive experience in sports injuries. Her supervision ensures that EMS is properly implemented without a hitch. Moreover, the method alone does not strain the musculoskeletal system.
What do I feel during the session?
You feel a pleasant tickle because of the current that flows through all of your muscles at the same time. But the power is adjusted by us in order for you to be comfortable.
What do I feel after the session?
By the end of the session you may feel a slight fatigue in your muscles and a slight pleasant feeling in your body, as we have after exercising, due to the secretion of endorphins.
However, if you are one of those who want to experience the feeling of exhaustion after a strenuous workout, the method will certainly not cover you.
When will I see results?
This depends on the person’s overall physical condition (weight, age …), diet, lifestyle – exercise. The first results start to appear following the first 4 – 6 sessions.
1st month. You begin to see changes in your body and mood.
2nd month. Your acquaintances notice a difference.
3rd month. People say flattering comments about your fitness.
Can it be combined with exercise?
It certainly can. We would even say that it is necessary.
Ideally, it should be combined with aerobic exercise, even on the same day. This will enhance results, as we promote the functionality of the training to very high levels.
It can also be combined with weight training but with caution. After 24 hours.
With what other methods would you propose to combine the EMS system?
First, a balanced nutrition is essential.
In addition to diet, it can be combined with:
- Hypoxi Vacunaut to reduce topical fat storage (areas where fat is stored).
- Lymphoid massage (SPM) to enhance the detoxification of the body.
- Mesotherapy to reduce fat in “love handles”.
What is the appropriate age for those who want to try EMS Training?
From 18 – 70 years old.
What should I wear and have with me?
- your sport shoes
- the special leggings and t-shirt you will buy at Nefer before the first session for personal hygiene reasons. They have anti-sweating, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial properties.
- It would also be advisable to have extra underwear with you, as the ones you are wearing will get wet.
How long is the session?
It lasts 20 minutes and time flies quickly and pleasantly. It corresponds to 2 – 3 hours of training in the gym.
How many sessions are required per week?
2 sessions per week and once you reach your desired goal, you can reduce the sessions to 1 per week.
Is there is a limit to the long-term use of EMS?
You can always do EMS, just as we mentioned and once you reach your desired goal, you will reduce your sessions to 1 time per week.
The electrical stimuli that are naturally produced by our central nervous system and the contraction of our muscles become more intense with the EMS, which uses the principle of electro-muscle stimulation more vigorously.
How much does it cost?
It starts at 35 €/session and the more sessions you do, the price can be as low as 20 €/session.
In addition, the first time you will buy your own set of leggings to wear before wearing the vest with the electrodes.
Due to overactive muscles, which can lead to overwork, the value of CPK (creatine kinase) increases.
For this reason, you can do a maximum of 2 sessions/week with a 4-day interval between sessions.
Regarding the current applied with the special vests, is it possible to harm the body;?
It is not harmful to the body in any way. Low frequency currents are applied, which have been used safely in aesthetics and physiotherapy for many years.
Our muscles are electrochemical organs, which require electrical stimulation from the central nervous system in order to contract. Electro-muscular stimulation – EMS, taking advantage of this property, utilizes these low-frequency currents, thereby intensifying muscle contraction.
In which cases is EMS contraindicated?
There are some absolute contraindications or some contraindications where you need your doctor’s permission.
- By pass
- Recent surgery
- Multiple sclerosis
- Advanced stage arteriosclerosis
- Fever and acute bacterial or viral infections
- Severe circulatory disorder
- Artificial parts
- Screws in fractures
- Serious problems with blood pressure
Is electro-muscle stimulation – EMS a new trend?
It is old. It may not have been in this form, i.e. a combination of electrical stimulation in the muscles and exercise, but Luigi Galvani, in 1761, had scientific findings on the properties of currents to activate the muscles. But mainly the current was used to repair muscle problems.
Are there any studies on electro-muscle stimulation?
There are studies demonstrating the efficacy and safety of EMT. Some of these are the following:
- Effects of Whole-Body Electromyostimulation versus High-Intensity Resistance Exercise on Body Composition and Strength: A Randomized Controlled Study (NCBI – Published online 2016)
- Whole-body electromyostimulation as a means to impact muscle mass and abdominal body fat in lean, sedentary, older female adults: subanalysis of the TEST-III trial (NCBI – Published online 2013)
- The efficacy and safety of whole-body electromyostimulation in applying to human body: based from graded exercise test (NCBI – Published online 2018)

Medical Needling is a non-invasive method of intense skin tightening and reduction of stretch marks. It is extremely effective in areas such as the arms, inside of thighs, belly etc. It can be applied to all skin types without causing any side effects.
How is Medical Needling applied?
It stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, thus boosting skin’s firmness. Special gels or serums are used, which increase the absorption by the skin. This appliance is a small cylinder along which there are small thin needles. By “rolling” it on the areas we want to work on, we create sligh and painless pricks.
This has 2 advantages:
- Through slight pricks, we are able to pass all the active ingredients we are going to use deeper into the skin.
- The resulting “micro-trauma” activates the healing mechanism, stimulating the fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin.
The results of Medical Needling are fast and impressive.
- It gives vitality.
- It smooths out stretch marks.
- It effectively treats scars and marks resulting from surgery, burns or injuries.
- It deeply moisturises and nourishes the skin.
The stages of Medical Needling we follow are:
- Skin cleansing & antisepsis
- Application of local antiseptic
- Application of anesthetic cream
- Application of regenerating – firming serums
- Use of the medical needling appliance It increases the absorption of serums by 300 times!
- Replenishing oil with high-power vitamin A & Lactic acid
We recommend special products for use at home to enhance proper collagen production and skin regeneration. It is advisable to apply them 15 – 30 days before the session and continue their use for at least 1 month after the sessions.
Duration: 60′ – 75′
Number of sessions: 6 -12 treatments
Frequency: every 7 – 15 days
Plasma Lift Pen for stretch marks
Although men have tight skin, some conditions, such as a big or abrupt weight loss, result in sagging skin and in some cases stretch marks appear. Plasma Lift Pen is applied to help reduce stretch marks on the body. This is a new generation device used to boost collagen production, resulting in the treatment of sun blotches.
The device ionizes nitrogen from ambient air and creates a micro-electric discharge or plasma “arc”, used for aesthetic purposes. Treatment is non-invasive. The “arc” never touches the skin, but it is positioned about 1mm above the skin. It causes a superficial micro-injury to the skin, where the stretch marks are. This is known as Fibloblasting, which is the activation of its natural healing mechanisms, without adversely affecting the surrounding tissue.
Plasma Lift Pen Stretch Marks Tightening, offered at the Nefer Beauty Salon & Diet Centre, produces real Plasma and not just electricity. This is important, because the skin-created burn from the Plasma arc is controlled, superficial, targeted and it works exactly where we want to intervene to regenerate the skin and not deeper.
During the session, the tip of the Plasma Pen needle remains cold.
The skin is treated through the arc created.
- It reduces stretch marks.
- It tightens the sagging skin of the body (e.g. belly, arms etc.).
- It removes skin irregularities caused by premature ageing and ageing in general.
What is plasma?
Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter, while the other three are the following :
Unlike the last three states of matter, plasma does not naturally exist on earth under normal conditions and can only be produced artificially from neutral gases.
How is the treatment applied?
The device has a pointed end, which during the session approaches the skin where there are stretch marks and just before touching it, the plasma “arc” (like a small lightning bolt) is created between the skin and the end of the device.
The arc is small and controlled. It leaves small, superficial burns on the skin, which last for 7-10 days.
Is the treatment done over a whole area of the body?
If there are a few stretch marks, then we treat them all in one session.
But if stretch marks are found, for example, all over the thighs and belly, then we should divide the surface into 4 sessions. This is because we need to leave the skin the time needed to heal and produce healthy collagen, without shocking the body.
Usually after 20 – 30 days we would treat the remaining areas.
Should the skin be prepared before the Plasma Pen session?
- For the best response to stretch marks reduction with Plasma Pen, we prepare the skin to produce healthy collagen & elastin.
- At least 15 days before, the client should start applying products that enhance the function of the skin at home. Such products mainly contain ingredients with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Peptides, suitable for the skin of the body.
Following the Palsma Pen Neck Lifting session, what care should be taken and what should be avoided?
- Sunbathing & solarium are not allowed for 3 months (sun protection is a must during this time). Especially for the neck, the area may also be covered with a scarf.
- Cleansing & disinfection of the area twice (2)/day
- Application of a regenerative cream until the crusts subside (7- 10 days)
- Use of sun protection for 3 months
- As long as there are crusts on the neck, the use of sauna, sweat sports and cosmetic treatments (especially invasive ones) are not allowed.
- The only treatment that can be applied at Nefer Beauty Salon is the Anti-oxidation with negative oxygen ions – Dermionologie Facial – Weyergans (it can be applied immediately after the session to enhance healing & regeneration of the skin).
After the Palsma Pen session, what will the skin look like?
- Mild swelling (first 3 days)
- Creation of a crust in the form of spots (it is more evident after 1 – 2 days and subsides after 7 – 10 days). The client should not pull them out.
- Redness for 2 – 8 weeks (it appears after the crusts have gone).
- Metallic inserts in the face
- Cardiac pacemaker
- Skin lesions
- Local inflammation
- Unregulated diabetes
- Acute inflammation
- Cleansing of the area with stretch marks & antisepsis
- Application of a local anaesthetic cream for 50′
- Use of Plasma Pen device
- Regenerating & sun protection cream
|Application area (one area/ session)||Cost|
|Large area||200€ – 400€ (depending on the extent of the problem)|
Duration of session: 60 minutes – 90 minutes
Number of sessions: 1 – 4 sessions (It depends from the age and the general image of the skin)
Duration: For the same application area: 1 session/ 2 – 3 months (only when redness subsides)
For different application area: 20-30 days from the next session with Plasma Pen
Shock Wave – Impact Ultrasound
Eliminate sagging skin once and for all in a safe, non-invasive and painless manner with Impact Ultrasound – Shock Wave.
What is Impact Ultrasound or Shock Wave and how does it work?
In aesthetics, we use many types of ultrasounds. Impact Ultrasound – Shock Wave is also a new technology for body sculpting.
It is a high-frequency, high-powered ultrasound that has the ability to “strike” and penetrate deep tissue in the form of waves. In the area where these ultrasound waves are applied:
⦁ blood circulation increases
⦁ the body’s natural healing mechanism is activated
It is a proven method that was first applied in medicine in 1980 to dissolve kidney stones (lithotripsy) and later, in physiotherapy for the recovery of painful conditions in the tendons and muscles.
In recent years, Impact Ultrasound – Shock Wave has been used in body aesthetics to eliminate topical fat and sagging skin. The intensity of the impact ultrasound we use in aesthetics – compared to their use in medicine and physiotherapy – is shaped at lower energy levels and applied to a larger area of the body.
What are the effects of Impact Ultrasound – Shock Wave on body and skin image?
⦁ On skin, skin tighetning and improving body contour. Pressure from the power of ultrasound creates “minor injuries” to the skin, resulting in activation of the natural mechanism of healing of the skin, the creation of new collagen.
⦁ At the level of the skin, it succeeds in reducing stretch marks.
⦁ Increase of blood circulation. This oxygenates the skin tissues, resulting in a local increase in metabolism, resulting fat loss.
⦁ With proper manipulations from the beautician, lymphatic drainage is promoted. This reduces swelling and fluid retention in the lower limbs.
In which areas is Impact Ultrasound – Shock Wave applied?
It is easily applied to any area with topical fat deposition and sagging skin.
Indicatively, it is applied on:
⦁ Back sides
How is the session carried out?
The beautician spreads a firming product on your skin, selects the appropriate program for skin tightening and then moves the impact ultrasound on your skin, using a hand-held “head”. You hear the noise of impact ultrasound and you feel a slight vibration. The skin becomes red and warm due to increased blood flow.
The session is carried out in 2 stages. During the first stage. the beautician uses a head and a program with less vibration, for more superficial action on the skin and during the second stage, we will use another head and program for more in-depth action.
Is the session painful?
It is a pleasant process and many feel relaxed. If someone is very sensitive to pain, the intensity can be adjusted to a lower setting.
Does it leave marks on the skin or does the skin hurt after the session?
It does not leave marks. Only people with poor blood circulation can develop small bruises, which recede very soon.
When do the first results appear?
The first results are evident from the first 6 sessions.
Are there any people who should not have a treatment of Impact Ultrasound – Shock Wave?
It has generally no contraindications, except for some serious conditions such as:
⦁ Thrombophlebitis (when Shock Wave is applied on legs)
⦁ Taking of anticoagulants
⦁ General unwellness
Duration: 20΄- 60΄ (depends on the size of the application area and the result we want to achieve)
Number of sessions: at least 12 sessions (6 weeks)
(depends on the intensity of the “problem” and the outcome we want to achieve)Every 12 sessions, we stop for 2 weeks. We continue after 2 weeks.
Frequency: 2 sessions / week Every 2 – 3 days
Lymphatic drainage with cupping glasses (SPM) and essential oils
Dermionologie body - Weyergans Negative oxygen ions
Ideal for reducing skin healing time after active skin-irritating treatments, such as Medical Needling.
Have you ever been in a waterfall or even in waves that crack strongly on rocks? You will have definitely felt great wellness. The cause is the negative oxygen ions, produced when the water falls with great force on the rocks or the ground..
What would you say if you could enjoy this beneficial effect in the city? How? With dermionologie!
During the session, excess acid is neutralized through the ionized oxygen used by the device. Within the following hours and days, the automatic removal of lymphatic waste occurs.
After the “internal cleansing” of the body, the body acids and bases are in perfect balance. The skin is brighter and the client feels refreshed and healthier.
The patented Dermio Care® facial treatment is based on negative ions. The advantages of negative ions have been proven since 1957. The American biologist A.P. Krueger described them as “vitamins of the air”. He showed that negative ions have vital properties for the body and that they positively influence breathing, cell membrane metabolism and the psychological state of those who participate in the session with dermionologie.
⦁ Reduction of swelling – fluid retention
⦁ Activation of the natural detoxification mechanisms of the body
⦁ Boost of metabolism
⦁ Application of a special gel on the body skin. Suitable for neutralizing the acid mantle of the skin to allow the action of the beneficial – for the body – negative oxygen ions.
⦁ You wear the special individual bag, up to the armpits or the waist. The bag is connected to the main device via a tube.
⦁ Activation of the Dermio device. During the session, negative ions are delivered onto the body.
Essentially, the device sucks the air out of the room and filters it out of dust and viruses. It then considerably enhances the negative ions of the air and sends them into the bag.
⦁ Optional (extra cost): Medical Needling, Hypoxi etc.
45€/ 1 session
350€ for 10 sessions (35€/session)
When combined with other body treatments: cost of treatment + 20 € for Dermionologie® Body– Weyergans.
Number of sessions: from 20 sessions
Frequency: We recommend 10 sessions during a skin rejuvenation cycle, i.e. 28 days.
