Q: What does the LIPOCONTOUR Body Sculpt treatment entail?
A: The LIPOCONTOUR treatment experience: pain-free, bruise-free, pleasant yet effective treatment. LIPOCONTOUR is a straightforward and pleasant experience. After lying down on the treatment table, we simulate the lymphatic system to prep the body, then a gel is applied to the skin of the area being treated, the equipment is then placed onto the skin, gliding with the aid of the gel along the treatment area. After a few minutes of treatment you will actually be able to feel the treatment "work". Your skin will gradually become contracted, tightened and firmer during the treatment, while the increase in circulation deep inside the skin will offer you a feeling of invigoration and health.
Q: How many treatments do I need for effective cellulite reduction/skin tightening/local fat removal?
A: Most clients need 6-12 sessions, however, this is a case-to-case basis, and some clients may need more or less based on their needs.
Q: What happens to the fat released by the cavitation or radio frequency treatment?
A: Fat released by radio frequency and cavitation can be oxidized for energy in the muscles and other tissues. Ultrasound cavitation stimulates the release of fat, in the form of triglycerides, by the fat cells (adipocytes). These triglycerides are taken up by the lymphatic vessels and the veins and end up in various body tissues (such as the muscles) where they can be burned (oxidized) for energy for eliminated from the body through urine.
Q: How often should I receive treatment?
A: In most cases treatment is recommended once or twice a week (and at least once in two weeks) for 6-12 sessions. More frequent treatments (up to 3 times a week per area) can be received for faster results, i.e. before vacation, wedding, birthday, anniversary, or other important event.
Q: Are the results permanent?
A: LIPOCONTOUR creates changes in the connective and adipose tissues that are very long lasting. The high-power ultrasound cavitation does not just release fat from the cells but it also physically breaks down a number of them through the processes of thermo lipolysis and cavitation, respectively. This means that a large part of the fat-reducing effects are very long lasting.
Q: Do I need to do anything to prepare myself for the treatment?
A: Make the most of your treatment by eating healthily and exercising on the day of the treatment. It is a must that you drink A LOT of water before the treatment at least one and a half liters, before and after. The LIPOCONTOUR Body Sculpt treatment does release fat from the cellulite tissues into the bloodstream. Therefore it is essential that on the day of the treatment you eat vegetables, salads, and very lean protein (i.e. fish, chicken/turkey breast etc.) in order to burn the released fat and make the most of your treatment. Any type of starch (including good carbs such as brown rice, brown bread, potatoes, pasta, etc.), sugary foods and drinks (such as cakes, croissants, muffins, coffee/tea with sugar or honey etc.), fruits (including fruit juices, carrot juice and smoothies), alcohol, and fat of any kind (including oils, nuts, seeds and cheese) are not allowed on the day of your treatment, to prevent the body form re-depositing excess fat back into the fat cells. Furthermore, exercise before or after the treatment is ideal for even more pronounced results.
Q: How do I maintain the results?
A: The fat/cellulite-reducing effects of the treatment can be maintained almost indefinitely if a healthy lifestyle is followed. On the other hand, fatty/sugary food, alcohol and inactivity can slowly lead to deposition of new fat and cellulite, so to make the most of your investment you are advised to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Maintenance treatments once a month, or touch-up courses once a year may be desired. If an average healthy, or less than healthy, lifestyle is followed, maintenance treatments once a month are recommended. Alternatively, some women opt for a refresher course of 6~12 sessions every year, usually before the summer vacation.
Q: What is Ultrasound Fat Cavitation?
A: A non-invasive technique which emits ultrasonic waves to cause what are known as cavitations (tiny bubbles) in fatty tissue. Cavitation destroys the fatty tissue, while leaving all other tissues intact. It is able to target the fatty tissues only by operating only at a specific, narrow band of frequency. Once the fatty cells die off, they are absorbed into the blood stream and excreted in your urine. There is no down time, and results are usually seen with the first treatment Free Consultation. Wonderfully priced packages for any budget. Great for men and women. No down time and you will feel and look great.
