How does it work?
Our Body Contouring treatments include several treatments in one. Laser Lipolysis uses low level red Diode laser therapy (cool laser) to pierce the adipocyte (fat cell) and liquify the fat within the cell. Then Ultrasonic Cavitation is performed on the treated area. This uses low frequency sound waves that causes a vibration within the body to assist with breakdown of the fat cells by creating microbubbles that increase the pressure around the adipocyte and force them to implode, releasing the fat stored within the cell. Your body natural lymphatic system can then flush out this unwanted liquified fat content. Radio Frequency Therapy then uses heat to reach the deep layers of the skin and causes the body to create new collagen fibres diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, loose sagging skin and stretch marks. Finishing with a short stand on the full body vibration plate will encourage lymphatic drainage to ensure you are getting the most out of your body contouring treatments.
We’ll start with a free consultation to assess your body contouring goals. We will ask about your diet and exercise, areas of concern and desired results to help us determine the best treatment plan for you. We will take pictures and measurements to track progress. We can often start your first session immediately following your consultation.
Setting Realistic Expectations
It is important to understand that this is not a weight loss treatment, it is an inch reduction treatment meant to target stubborn fat pockets. Body Contouring treatments are not a replacement for healthy diet and exercise. We will never discuss pounds only inches.
The procedure is a process and multiple treatments will be required. You may notice results after your first treatment, however typically 6 to 12 treatments will be required to achieve desired results and results will vary from person to person.
On the day of your appointment you MUST drink 1.5 litres of water before your body contouring treatment and at least 1.5 more litres that day. For the next three days (after a treatment) you MUST drink 3 to 5 litres of water a day. This allows the body to flush out the liquified fat. You MUST drink the water, if you are not going to drink the water, you are not going to get optimal results.
Prep for your Treatment
On the day of your appointment you MUST drink 1.5 litres of water before your treatment. Also, consider the area of the body you are working on and dress accordingly. Tights, track pants and bicycle shorts are encouraged for a more comfortable treatment.
During Your Treatment
The laser lipolysis pads are placed directly on the target area for 35 minutes, they are cool lasers and absolutely pain free. You can keep your phone handy to help pass the 35 minutes. The ultrasonic cavitation is 15 minutes long and emits a sound that some find unpleasant however cause no physical discomfort at all. We finish with 10 minutes standing on the full body vibration plate to encourage lymphatic drainage.
On the day of your appointment, you will have already consumed 1.5 litres of water before your treatment and MUST drink at least 1.5 litres more that day. It takes three days after a treatment for your body to expel the unwanted fat, during this three day period you MUST drink 3 to 5 litres a day to flush the fat. We also recommend some physical activity and a healthy diet.
