What is Body Contouring or Body Sculpting?
We offer a non surgical and non-invasive face and body contouring or body sculpting. We use a combination of vacuum to mobilize lymphatic drainage, ultrasound cavitation to burst fat cells, radio frequency and red light to tighten loose skin, increase collagen production and increase cellular activity and healing. This service is intended for targeted fat and cellulite reduction, body contouring and skin tightening.
Although not intended as a form of weight loss, body contouring will help empty fat cells which can result in lost inches in the treated areas for a slimmer, smoother shape. Unlike more invasive procedures such as plastic surgery, liposuction, coolsculpt, sculpsure, zerona and other forms of lipolysis that permanently remove fat cells, our treatments are non-invasive with no downtime and will empty fat cells without destroying them.
Our fat cells play an important role in storing and releasing needed energy for cellular function and producing hormone-like molecules necessary for the regulation of of glucose, cholesterol and sex hormones. Therefore, fat cells are necessary for proper bodily functions but excess stored fat can harden and become problematic - excessive, unhealthy and difficult to get rid off. Our services are not intended to destroy these necessary fat cells but to decrease their size or volume for improved functioning and appearance.

What Is Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a fat reduction treatment that uses ultrasound waves to burst fat cells, which may result in lost inches on the treated areas and slimmer figure. Ultrasound cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, it ruptures fat cell membranes, releasing its fat content which can be eliminated by the body.
Does body contouring work?
Yes, but results may vary. Depending on your individual health history and body type, you may slim down more or less dramatically or have longer- or shorter-lasting results than others.
How many treatments do I need? How often should I be treated to see results?
Generally most clients start to see a difference in 1-3 treatments. Often time you'll see results after first session. However, between 8 and 12 sessions are recommended for optimum results. The exact number of treatments will vary due to factors such as age, weight, and the area being treated. You must wait at least 4 days in between treatments.
After the initial treatments are completed, maintenance treatments consist of one session each month for 4 months followed by one treatment every 3-4 months.
Is there any downtime?
No, this is a non-invasive procedure with no down time.
How long do the results last?
Our body contouring treatment does not destroy fat cells. You can achieve volume reduction of fatty tissues and toning of the area treated. This procedure uses cavitation technology (ultrasound) to attack fat deposits that have been difficult to shed off despite dieting and regular exercising. It just makes the fat cells release their contents, which means the cells are capable of storing fat again.
The results are gradual over a number of weeks as your body clears the broken-down fatty tissues. Some can see results immediately after treatment but results are more observable 4-7 days after. It is not uncommon to achieve up to 10 cm. reduction by the end of the treatment series. The results can be long-lasting provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise program. However it is very easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if one overeats or doesn’t exercise.
Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual’s tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, diet, medication, activity level and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will help improve and maintain results.

What are potential Side Effects?
Side effects with our body contouring are rare.
Potential side effects we found in reviews include temporary:
- Skin redness and irritation
- Increased body temperature
- Mild aches and pains
- Increased thirst
Following aftercare instructions is essential to achieve the desired results.
Hydration is key! You need to drink plenty of fluid, preferably water, before and after treatment and days afterwards.
Important aftercare considerations include:
- Hydration: you must drink lots of water before and after treatment and the days that follow
- Eat a healthier, balanced diet
- Add daily exercise to tighten skin and lose any extra weight. At the very minimum, include a 30 minute walk for 3 days after treatment
- Avoid fatty foods (minimize processed carbs and sugars)
- Avoid alcohol, caffeine, diuretics and carbonated drinks before and for 72 hours after treatment
Is treatment safe?
This is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia, it is non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or need post-operative care) and it allows for life as usual both before and after the sessions. This procedure is totally safe.
Is it possible to lose weight with this service?
This is NOT a method to lose weight but rather to shape or contour the body. IT IS NOT INTENDED FOR HIGHLY OBESE INDIVIDUALS but we have seen improvement such as smoothing of folds/rolls in mild to moderately obesity. The treatment is used to reduce stubborn fatty pockets or localized fat that just won’t go away with diet and exercise while tightening and toning the skin.
