So, you've been keeping up with your workouts. You've been sticking to a good diet. You feel great, but you aren't getting the results you wanted. What are your options? If you have stubborn areas of fat that you want to get rid of or just wish the shape of a part of your body was different, you might be wondering if non-surgical body sculpting treatments are right for you.
Here at The Beauty Spot, we provide body sculpting procedures that are quick, painless, and effective. Let's take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions about body sculpting.
What is Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting targets and kills fat cells without surgery. It helps you shape and lose stubborn fat in areas like the upper arms, stomach, hips, and thighs.
Body sculpting not only helps get rid of fat, but it also reduces cellulite, improves blood circulation, and strengthens connective tissue.
This procedure is best for people who are close to their ideal weight but would like to shape, tighten, tone, or define some parts of their body more.
How does body sculpting work?
Body sculpting procedures use different kinds of energy to kill fat cells and tighten the skin. Once the treatment is done, the body processes and filters out the dead fat cells over the next 3–4 months. This is when most people see the full effect of the procedure.
Are there different types of body sculpting treatments?
Now that you know how body sculpting works, let’s review the different types of body sculpting available.
There are several different types of body sculpting treatments. Here are some of the treatments offered at The Beauty Spot:
Radio Frequency Body Sculpting
Radio frequency is a process that uses radio waves to heat up and tighten skin, helping you achieve your desired results. Radio frequency can be used to treat cellulite, loose skin, stretch marks, and more.
Cavitation is an innovative process that uses ultrasound waves to break up fat cells and release them into the body's lymphatic system, where they're removed naturally. It's like liposuction, except without the surgery—or any incisions at all!
It's a painless process that requires no downtime and leaves no scars or marks behind on your skin after treatment. And best of all? The results are permanent.
Laser lipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser energy to destroy fat cells. It's minimally invasive, and it can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It works by heating up the skin and fat cells, which causes them to die off and be replaced with new, healthy cells.
This treatment is an effective way to improve your overall health and well-being by using vacuum therapy to stimulate the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing toxins from your body, which can lead to swelling and fluid retention. Vacuum therapy works by creating a negative pressure gradient around your body; this causes blood vessels to widen and pull fluid out of tissues into the lymphatic system.
The vacuum helps stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid, which helps move fluid away from congested areas in your body such as under the skin or around joints or muscles.
Vacuum therapy has been shown to improve circulation in the legs, arms and torso area; increase mobility in people with joint pain; relieve muscle spasms; reduce swelling; and help drain excess fluid from swollen areas like ankles after sitting too long or on flights/trains/cars etc…
Is body sculpting safe? Does it hurt?
Body sculpting is a non-invasive procedure that causes little to no pain. Body sculpting procedures have very few side effects, which usually consist of minor pain, swelling, or a warm feeling in the treated area.
Still, it's a good idea to think about your medical history before seeking treatment. Our friendly, highly trained practitioners will consult with you to determine which procedure is best for you.
How is body sculpting different from liposuction?
You now know that body sculpting can reduce fat and improve muscle tone in specific areas. What about liposuction, though? Doesn't that accomplish the same thing? Almost, but there are some significant dissimilarities.
Liposuction is a suction-based procedure used to eliminate localized fat deposits. When compared to non-invasive body sculpting techniques, this one calls for general anesthesia and a significantly longer recovery period (often 1-2 months). Anesthesia-related problems, excessive bleeding, and an unsatisfactory reduction in fat are all possible side effects.
Body sculpting is non-invasive and causes few side effects, so you can get right back to your day afterward.
How long does a body sculpting treatment take?
Your body sculpting sessions could last anything from 20 minutes to an hour or more. In most cases, you'll need anywhere from four to eight visits to the clinic before the therapy is complete, and you'll likely start noticing positive changes in your appearance after around three to four treatments. Most notice changes after the first or second visit. Final results can be seen in 3-4 months.
It is recommended to plan appointments 3-7 days apart for the best outcomes.
How should I prepare for body sculpting treatments?
Most of us have had medical procedures where we were told not to eat for several hours before. Thanks to body contouring, you don't have to worry about that!
But there are a few simple things that our staff wants you to do before your body contouring appointment:
For the two days before, you should drink more water. Radiofrequency works because it targets the water in fat cells. Staying hydrated before and after your appointment will help the procedure work better.
For a week before you treat an area, keep it out of direct sunlight. We don't want anyone to get burned.
Don't put makeup or deodorant on the area being treated. These could irritate the skin during the procedure.
