1What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting targets and kills fat cells in the body without surgery. It allows you to shape and lose stubborn fat in areas such as the upper arms, abdomen, hips, and thighs. Not only does body sculpting help destroy fat, but it also reduces cellulite, promotes healthy blood circulation, and strengthens connective tissue. This procedure is ideal for those who are close to their ideal weight but have parts of their body they’d like to shape, tighten, tone, or define a little more.
2How does body sculpting work?
Body sculpting procedures use different types of energy to kill fat cells and visibly tighten skin. Once the treatment is complete, the body processes and filters out the destroyed fat cells over the course of the next 3-4 months, which is when most people see the full effect of the procedure.
3Is body sculpting safe? Does it hurt?
Body sculpting is non-invasive and involves little to no pain. Side effects to body sculpting procedures are very minimal, usually consisting of minor pain, swelling, or a warm feeling on the treated area. Still, it’s always a good idea to consider your health history before getting treatment. Our friendly, highly trained practitioners will discuss which procedure will be the best for you.
4How is body sculpting different from liposuction?
Liposuction uses a suction technique to remove fat from targeted areas. It is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and a longer recovery time (usually 1-2 months) than body sculpting. Associated risks include complications from anesthesia, bleeding, and uneven fat reduction. Body sculpting has minimal side effects and because it is noninvasive, it allows you to get back to your normal routine immediately following treatment.
5How long does a body sculpting treatment take?
Depending on the type of treatment, your body sculpting appointments may take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour or more. You can usually plan on coming in for 4-8 appointments before the treatment is complete and will usually see full results over the next 3-4 months.
6What can I expect after body sculpting?
Because body sculpting procedures are non-invasive, you can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. You may experience some redness, swelling, or tenderness around the treatment area for a few days following the procedure. However, pain is usually very minimal.
