Everything You Need To Know About Body Sculpting
Updated: Jan 12
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting includes surgical and nonsurgical fat reduction procedures. These procedures reduce or remove stubborn pockets of fat to contour and shape different areas of the body.
What is non-surgical body sculpting?
Nonsurgical body sculpting is also known as nonsurgical fat reduction. There are many types of non-surgical fat reduction procedures, but most are based on one of the following four principles:
Controlled cooling: using freezing temperatures to target and destroy fat cells
Laser lipolysis: using controlled heating and laser energy to target fat cells
Radiofrequency lipolysis: using controlled heating and ultrasound technology to target fat cells
Injection lipolysis: using injectable deoxycholic acid to target fat cells
What type of body sculpting are you offering at The Glamour Inn?
We are offering radiofrequency lipolysis and laser lipolysis.
What kind of machine are you using?
S-shape cavitation machine featuring 30k cavitation frequency
What makes 30k cavitation special in comparison to other salons?
Many aesthetic facilities offer body sculpting with machines that use only 40k cavitation. While 40k is still slightly effective, 30k is stronger in frequency and will yield faster results. This is because 30k cavitation can act on deeper fat layers and reduce stubborn fat.
Who is the best candidate for body sculpting?
The best candidate for body sculpting is someone who is close to their desired weight and wants to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. If you have ay skin conditions such as eczema,psoriasis or sensitivities this treatment may not be for you as the skin is continuously being rubbed which may cause irritation and or flare up.
Women who have recently had a baby should wait at least 3 months prior to starting any treatments.
If you have recently had surgery in any areas that you are looking to be treated, you must wait a year before receiving body sculpting treatments or consult with your doctor and or surgeon.
Is this good for weight loss?
Body sculpting acts as an aid to weight loss. You may lose weight however, the more fatty areas you have, the more sessions you may need. It will not work without adjustment to your lifestyle. Ideally , you should be within 30 pounds of your goal weight before committing to a body sculpting regimen. Diet and exercise along with body sculpting sessions are guaranteed to help you achieve the results you are looking for. Waist training is also beneficial to your regimen if you are looking for quicker results in the stomach area.
What is the “downtime” of these procedures?
Most nonsurgical body sculpting procedures are minimally invasive to noninvasive. Generally, you can resume daily activities immediately after the treatment. You may have bruising or soreness after the first session. You may apply ice to the treated area.
How long does a treatment take?
One treatment area takes 30-60 minutes.
How many treatments are required?
Multiple treatments are usually required to deliver satisfactory results. Treatments can be done every 48-72 hours at the most and shouldn't be spread more than a week apart. It is recommended to have 6-10 treatments within a 8 week period.
