Two New Innovative Services at Central Pharmacy Help Reduce Cellulite and Tighten Skin!

We are incredibly excited to announce two new cellulite-blasting services that are now offered at Central Compounding Pharmacy in our pharmacy Spa Room: Vacuodermie and Ultrasonic Cavitation!


Both of these services are innovative non-surgical alternatives to liposuction that help to reduce cellulite on your body as well as tighten skin.

For best results, we recommend that both treatments be used in an alternate sequence, but you may also see results from individual services.

What is Vacuodermie and how does it work?

Vacuodermie is a safe and painless FDA-registered technique used for the reduction of cellulite, wrinkles, and scars. The majority of people seek this treatment for weight loss and slimming, skin firming and toning, body contouring, sculpting massage, natural facial lifting effect, relief of muscle tension and body aches, joint pain and inflammation, scars, stretch marks, and much more.

In a typical vacuodermie session, a sliding device with transparent cups is used to gently move across your skin, applying measured levels of suction that activate cellular exchanges from deep tissues to the surface of the skin. This technique causes an increase in the vascularization of tissues through the dilation of small vessels, delivering more oxygen and essential nutrients, restoring an optimal cellular metabolism, improving blood flow to the tissues, and promoting tissue rejuvenation. In addition, it has been used to treat tendonitis, bursitis, muscle sprains, general pain, spasms, motion problems, and inflammation.

Vacuodermie has been used in Europe for many years and is now becoming more popular in the United States. It sometimes is seen as a modern version of cupping, but offers many more benefits due to the combination of simultaneous suction and massage.

What is Ultrasonic Cavitation and how does it work?

Ultrasonic Cavitation is one of the latest developments in the reduction of cellulite, using high energy waves to shrink fat cells in the body. In a typical treatment, a trained clinician uses an ultrasound machine and gel or cream and makes circles and strokes on the part(s) of the body affected by cellulite.  The machine uses high frequency waves to target fat cells deep within the tissue, drawing blood towards the area and allowing the tissue to release fat.

Ultrasound cavitation has been shown to be extremely effective at reducing cellulite and providing body shaping. In addition, radio frequency is also used to help tighten the skin after the cavitation step.

The procedure is safe, painless and can only take approximately 20-40 minutes.

Meet Our New Pharmacist, Mona!

We are so excited to introduce our new Pharmacist, Mona Sadri, who recently joined the Central Compounding Pharmacy team in May!

Mona grew up in Ann Arbor, MI and studied for her Doctorate in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Michigan. After graduation she moved to Los Angeles and began working for a pharmacy chain. However, after 4 years she was craving something more personable and fulfilling and moved on to a job at a boutique pharmacy where she realized her true interest and appreciation for compounding and the ability to offer an alternative to patients that don’t respond to traditional forms of treatment. 

In her free time, Mona likes to head to the beach or explore new places around the city and takes every opportunity she can to travel. 

If you get a chance please say hello and welcome to Mona the next time you visit our pharmacy!
