Body Contouring FAQ
FAT FREEZING BODY SCULPTING
We’ve taken an industry proven fat reduction treatment and ENHANCED it by adding another well known detox treatment! Our Fat Freezing Body Sculpting Sessions include an infrared sauna wrap, wood therapy, and ice therapy treatment. These treatments freeze and break down fat cells; allowing the relocation and removal of unwanted fat thru lymphatic system.
Effects are based on natural thermogenesis, resulting in the disposal of toxins, while it also firms, tones, activates the production of collagen and elastin, oxygenates and revitalizes skin, dissolves fat deposits, and smooths cellulite. Add radio frequency skin tightening, and skip the scalpel!
Wood Therapy is particularly helpful at breaking down cellulite and fat deposits in preparation for other sculpting treatments, but is also beneficial as a stand-alone treatment. Soften up denser fat deposits or focus on cellulite areas before or in the midst of your Fat Freezing series for improved results!
Ultrasonic cavitation uses low frequency ultrasonic waves to transform your fat cells into fatty acids. Your body can then dispose of those fatty acids — they won’t stick around as fat cells do. This treatment typically requires around a dozen results to see significant improvement, but dramatically increases results when added to a Fat Freezing Session.
Radio frequency skin tightening
RF Skin tightening uses radio frequency energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. The treatment induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen and elastin. Add to your Fat Freezing series to help skin rebound to its fullest potential!
Infrared Sauna Wrap
Lipo-reductive toning lotions and/or gels are applied to your desired areas and thoroughly wrapped before you enjoy the detoxing and therapuetic properties of our infrared sauna. Every Fat Freezing Session starts with one of these, or you can try it as a standalone treatment!
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: Everyone is different an has different goals, so it’s hard to say without a physical assessment! Most people will benefit from a series of at least 3 to 7 treatments, but we can sculpt you ‘til you’ve reached YOUR personal goal. Look at some of the images below from SculptICE for examples of how many sessions yield visible results on real people! And that’s without the infrared sauna wrap that makes our treatment different!
Q: How soon until I see results?
A: Many people see a difference immediately after just the first treatment, however small! A noticeable difference is apparent by 3 to 5 treatments, and you may continue to see improved results for up to 3 months after your last session!
Q: How does it work?
A: Please see the brief explanations above for a basic explanation. If you would like to have an in-depth conversation about the processes that take place when we freeze away your fat, please schedule a consultation with us!
Q: Will I lose weight?
A: You very well may lose weight, however, we are focusing on VOLUME. As long as you simply MAINTAIN the number on the scale, you will see results! You will lose inches, and be slipping into those old jeans or that dress in no time!
Q: Is there any downtime?
A: NO! This is completely non-invasive treatment! There are no needles, no scalpels, NO DOWNTIME! Just results.
Q: Is it painful?
A: This may not be our most relaxing spa treatment, but it’s not painful! The wood therapy is a intense type of massage and may leave you feeling like you just had a workout, and the ice therapy is definitely cold, but you should not feel any pain, only mild discomfort at certain points of the treatment.
Q: How long do results last?
A: As long as you at least MAINTAIN the number on the scale from Day 1 of treatment, you will be able to enjoy the effects of the treatment.
Q: What will happen to untreated areas if I gain weight?
A: Just like surgical liposuction and tummy tucks, you can still gain weight after treatment! When you gain weight, all your fat cells expand at a consistent rate; when you lose weight they shrink - but the total number remains the same. Treatments like our Fat Freezing Body Sculpting, Coolsculpting, Thermage, liposuction and tummy tucks all target and destroy or physically remove fat cells. The remaining fat cells still have the ability to expand and contract! Untreated areas will appear to have more rapid weight gain if you do not maintain your starting weight after treatment.
Q: Is there any reason or condition that would prohibit me from safely receiving any body contouring treatments?
A: Please visit our TREATMENT CONTRAINDICATIONS page for full listing. Pregnancy/ breastfeeding, active cancer, recent surgery, and recent use of blood thinners are the most commonly encountered contraindications.
