Body Contour Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Cavitation Lipo and Laser Lipo?
Cavitation liposuction uses ultrasound to disrupt fat.
Laser liposuction used laser (light) heat.
What is Ultrasound Fat Cavitation?
Advertised as the latest revolution in fat removal technology that does NOT involve medical intervention or surgery. The scientifically developed medical Ultrasonic RF technology is based on a medical breakthrough that uses bio-cavitational ultrasound waves and radio frequency energy, to selectively break down fat cells and cellulite without affecting neighboring organs and cells. Immediately after treatment, the body clear away the disrupted fat cells, mainly through the liver.
The procedure is comfortable and painless, has no side effects, and requires no anesthesia or sedation.
How does Ultrasonic Cavitation remove fat?
The vibration of positive and negative alternation of sound waves produces a strong pressure to fat cell membranes.
As the fat cell membrane cannot withstand this pressure, it will explode into the liquid content. After disruption of adipose cells (fat cells), the broken fat in the form of triglycerides is released into the interstitial fluid between the cells, where they are enzymatically metabolized to glycerol and free fatty acids. Water soluble glycerol is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as the energy source, whereas the insoluble free fatty acids are transported to the liver and processed as fatty acids from food. A quantity of fat cells are destroyed and therefore reduced, and the body’s fat cell metabolism is improved. Destroying these fat cells removes the body’s environment for fat storage.
After care for the next 3 days
No alcohol (your liver is busy getting rid of all this extra fat)
Drink lots of water and eat fruits
No very fatty meal directly after (i.e. fried food)
How many sessions will I need to see results?
Results are usually almost immediate with an average of approximately 1”- 4” (2 – 10 cm) lost from the area after the first session. It is recommended to have 3 to 12 sessions for best results. Remember not all experience the same results. Since we are all different results may vary.
Individuals who should not use infrared wrap?
The infrared wrap is contraindicated for individuals with Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Hemophilia, Fever and Heat Sensitivity, and Pregnancy. Individuals taking pharmaceutical medications should consult their medical doctor or pharmacist.
Can it replace a diet?
Never!!! A sensible diet can help you maintain a healthy weight. Infrared acts effectively on targeting those stubborn areas that diet and exercise just don't seem to be able to reach.
Is the treatment specifically for women?
Both men and women can benefit from all body treatments.
Who will The Detox/Slimming Wrap help?
Anyone who wants to lose weight. People with overly dry or rough skin. People with loose skin due to weight changes or from pregnancy. Men and women who want to look terrific fast! Anyone who wants to look and feel younger.
What do I wear while I am wrapped?
Women are wrapped in a bra and panties or bikinis (no girdles, please, as they make accurate measurements impossible). Bring a change of underwear because what you are wrapped in will be wet. Men are wrapped in swim trunks they bring with them.
What is meant by "total inch loss”?
Measurements are taken of various parts of the body (hips, waist, abdomen, upper arms, etc.) before the wrap and recorded on your personal record chart with notes as to where you want to lose inches or contour. After the wrap you are re-measured, and the difference of your measurements are added to determine your "total inch loss."
How many wraps will I need?
That depends on several things: The results you seek, the amount of loose skin you have, how active you are in your wrap, (it's advised you do mild aerobic motions while you are wrapped) your commitment to any necessary weight loss program, etc. To maximize your results 1 or 2 sessions a week are recommended until your skin looks tighter, you are satisfied you look great, then it just takes a few times a year for maintenance. We can do multiple wraps a day if time is a factor; i.e., weddings, reunions, photo shoots, special events, etc.
How much weight will I lose?
The Body Wrap was designed to take off inches rather than pounds. Weight loss would be a bonus.
What is Vacuum Therapy (non-Surgical Butt- Lift) ?
Vacuum-therapy stimulates muscles, break down cellulite and fatty deposits, eliminating toxins, improving lymphatic drainage and taking inches off. Vacuum therapy also helps restore the skin's natural elasticity to smooth the appearance of facial wrinkles and "orange-peel" dimpling in the thighs and buttocks. This therapy is painless, safe and highly effective. Vacuum-therapy, thru the combination of its different action mechanisms, well as stimulating the blood, performs lymphatic drainage, which means a direct stimulation to the fibroblast as well as an increment in collage elastin, improving the texture and tone of the treated zone.
Treatment can be done twice a week.
