Frequently Asked Questions

WHO QUALIFIES FOR TREATMENTS:
Anyone who is close to their ideal body weight or someone who is starting their
weight loss journey and needs a jump start to become healthier and lose inches is
a good candidate for body sculpting. It is not used to treat morbid obesity and
works most effectively to remove unwanted fat from targeted areas of the body.
It works best when used in combination with other healthy lifestyle habits such as
eating healthy, exercising, and drinking sufficient amounts of water every day.

People with the following conditions would NOT be able to get services:
- Those with “3 Hs” (hypertension, hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia)
- Severe diabetes and hyperthyroidism
- Malignant tumors, hemophilia or severe bleeding
- Skin diseases and infectious diseases

- Severe gynecological diseases
- Pacemaker
- Diabetes
- Cardiac issues
- Vascular disease
- Metal implants, rods or other devices inside the body
- Women who are pregnant
- Had a baby less than 6-8 weeks prior
- Women who are breastfeeding and not willing to pump and dump for 48
after treatment
- Conditions like psoriasis, eczema, or other skin sensitivities that may result
in flare ups when the skin is constantly rubbed
- Anyone who has recently undergone a surgery (less than 3 months prior) in
the area being treated
- Vertigo or sensitivity to high pitched sounds (avoid cavitation)
- Severe high blood pressure or circulation problems
- Has cancer or is receiving chemotherapy (must be a full year cancer free or
post chemo)

- Open wounds or sores
- Deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins, epilepsy

- Hemorrhagic disease, trauma, vascular rupture
- Liver or kidney disease

- During menstrual period. Wait until cycle is finished. 

HOW OFTEN CAN TREATMENTS BE DONE:

Clients should wait at least 72 hours between treatments to give the
lymphatic system a break so it is not draining too much and has a chance
to eliminate the fat. Also none of the individual therapies should be done
longer than 30 minutes. Example - Ultrasound Cavitation can be done for
only 30 minutes but split into sections, such as 15 minutes on the left

thigh and 15 minutes on the right thigh.
Clients are recommended to do 3-6 treatments for ideal results. A one
week break should be taken after 4 sessions and a four week break after
12 sessions to allow the body to recover.

Am I a good candidate for body sculpting?
Anyone who is close to their ideal body weight and actively taking steps to
become healthier and lose inches is a good candidate for body sculpting. Our
services work best when used in combination with other healthy lifestyle habits
such as eating healthy, exercising, and drinking sufficient amounts of water every
day.
People who have pacemakers, diabetes, cardiac issues, or vascular disease are not
good candidates. Women who are pregnant cannot receive treatments.
Are the procedures safe?
All the treatments we offer have been FDA approved and are commonly used
across the United States in medical spas and weight loss centers. Our staff is
experienced and certified to use the machines in the office.


How do I need to prepare for my appointment?
Prior to your appointment you will receive a text message and/or email with a link to
complete online paperwork. You will also receive the following instructions:
~ Do not wear lotions, oils, or makeup on area to be treated
~ Do not drink caffeine for 24 hours prior to session
~ Avoid alcohol for 48 hours prior to session
~ Drink 2-3 liters of water the day before the session

~ Do not eat 2 hours prior
~ Wear comfortable, stretchy or loose clothing and items you won't mind
getting oils or gels on.


What can I expect on the day of my appointment?
On the day of your appointment, you will come into the office and complete any
paperwork that was not completed before arrival. You will have a short
consultation with the service provider addressing any questions or concerns you
may have. The service provider will discuss with you your goals, explain what
services will be performed, and make a recommendation on the number of follow
up (future) treatments you should have.
All the services will be performed in a private, comfortable, spa-like room, on a
massage table. Depending on the areas being treated, clients may be asked to
undress down to their undergarments. We can provide disposable bras and
underwear if requested.


What is the recovery time?
Body Sculpting procedures are non-surgical and therefore require no general
anesthesia or incisions, and leaves no scars. There is no downtime after receiving
the services and little to no side effects. The only possible side effects would be
minimal bruising to the areas treated, light swelling, and possible headaches if the
client does not drink a sufficient amount of water after the appointment.
Clients will be able to resume normal daily activities immediately after the
appointment, including working out.


How often can I receive the services?
You can receive the services every 3-6 days, up to 4 weeks. After 4 weeks it is
required that you take a week off to allow your lymphatic system a break.


How soon will I see results?
Most clients will see immediate results, however, some may experience swelling
after the treatment and optimal results are not seen until 3-6 days after the
treatments. All clients will have the option to have before and after photos and
measurements taken in the office, and are encouraged to take them at home on
day 6.


Are the results permanent?
Results are permanent as long as the client maintains them. For example clients
will need to continue to eat healthy, exercise, and drink plenty of water. Just like
if you lost 22 pounds, those pounds are gone, unless you resort back to unhealthy
habits and gain back the weight.


How many total sessions will I need to reach my ideal body image?
Every client will have different goals, and every client will experience difference
results after each session (depending on how well they maintain their healthy
lifestyle habits). The average person needs 3-6 sessions to reach their goals and
ideal body image. The service provider will discuss your goals at your first
appointment and make a recommendation on how many total sessions you
should have. We offer multiple session packages at a discounted rate.

How are these services different from cool sculpting and other non-
invasive weight loss procedures?

Coolsculpting: As the name implies, Coolsculpting uses controlled cooling to
freeze fat cells (called Cryolipolysis). This process kills the cells by causing them to
collapse. Once they’ve collapsed, other cells come in to consume them.


Body Sculpting Treatments: Our sessions use three distinct modalities to target
stubborn fat:
1. The first modality is ultrasound, which uses low frequency sound waves to
permanently destroy fat cells.
2. The second is radiofrequency, which uses a thermal effect to heat the skin
and cause collagen tissues to regroup and contract, creating a lifting effect.
3. The third is microcurrent, which uses low levels of energy to repair skin at a
cellular level.


We consider body sculpting to be superior to Coolsculpting for the following
reasons:

1. Yes, both treatments boast less pain, risks, side-effects, downtime and
recovery than surgery. However, body sculpting procedures are much more
gentle and associated with fewer side effects than Coolsculpting. The risks
with Cryolipolysis are due to the body’s exposure to cold temperatures.
2. Following a body sculpting session, you will see immediate results. On the
other hand, Coolsculpting can take weeks to work.
3. While both treatments destroy fat, body sculpting does so much more to
contour the body. As stated above, Radiofrequency and Microcurrent are
also included in this three-pronged approach to body-sculpting and fat
burning. As a result, it’s a great option to tighten, tone and repair skin at
the cellular level.
4. Generally speaking, the body sculpting cost per session is less than the
Coolsculpting price.

Can I receive treatment if I am nursing?
Yes, but please pump and dump for 48 hours after treatment due to the
amount of toxins that will be in your milk. Most moms prefer to wait until baby is

done nursing and drinking whole milk.

 
How long after giving birth can I wait to receive a treatment?
6-8 weeks or until your doctor clears you for exercise. Please wait 3 months post c-section 

if treating abdomen.


How long after surgery do I wait to receive treatment?
Please wait a minimum of 3 months due to high sensitivity of nerves (you could
feel pain if you come in sooner than that).

Are your session only for women?

Yes, as of now, our body sculpting specialists are certified for women only. We will kindly refer men to someone who is trained to perform these services on men. 

Sessions are by appointment only. Reservation booking fee is required to reverse your designated appointment time.
