Body contouring targets and eliminates unwanted fat cells through a topical, rather than surgical, procedure. It offers patients the opportunity to eliminate and/or reduce excess skin and fat that remains stubborn to diet and exercise.
Body contouring treatments do not require an incision or anesthesia and come with minimal downtime. We use the iShape Aesthetics system to provide provide dramatic reductions to all areas of the body, while lifting and tightening skin!
To learn if you’re a good candidate, consultations are required before booking this treatment.
Ultrasound Cavitation is non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses ultrasound technology to reduce fat cells in targeted parts of the body. It is the preferred option for anyone who does not want to undergo extreme options such as liposuction, as it does not involve any needles or surgery. In addition to that, it has zero recovery time and is painless— often taking less than an hour.
Ultrasound cavitation uses high-intensity, focused ultrasonic waves to separate and destroy fat cells. Energy passes through the skin into the targeted fat cells without harming the skin or any surrounding tissues.
Treating cellulite typically requires several sessions. While results may be visible after the first session, you’ll see best results at the end of your prescribed treatment course. The exact duration of each session depends on the treated area and your unique needs.
The procedure itself begins with a preparation that implies covering the skin with a special gel or oil. Next, the esthetician proceeds to the treatment itself.
Cellulite reduction treatment is non-invasive and uses radiofrequency to gently massage your body, similar in feel to a hot stone massage. You’ll notice the machine gradually becoming warmer and warmer– however, the temperature is carefully controlled to not overheat. The heat, combined with a tissues massage, effectively attacks cellulite cells and accelerates your metabolism. The procedure doesn’t require downtime and usually is not associated with any post-procedure side effects. It’s safe and painless!
Pre and post-treatment considerations
Body contouring treatments crackle and break up fat, but the trick is to remove these unwanted toxins from your body. The day before and after your session, we suggest you:
- Drink at least 64 ounces of water prior to and after your appointment (tip: adding lemon helps promote weight loss and energy!)
- Eat a sensible diet, avoiding unnecessary fatty foods and eating more fruits and vegetables
- Try over the counter herb milk thistle & cranberry pills to maximize the detoxifying and cleansing of the liver and kidneys
- Avoid alcohol and caffeine
- Elevate your heart rate to speed up the removal of toxins
