Is Body Contouring Safe?
To answer the question simply, Yes! Body contouring is safe for most patients. Before any treatment is conducted we have an extensive consultation form that asks about everything that we need to know such as age, gender, medications, sun exposure, previous medical history etc.
For example, Clients who have vascular conditions that make them extra sensitive to cold temps, clients with raynauds syndrome or diabetes are more likely to suffer damage to the blood vessels near the surface causing irritation or bruising. Also a lot of these clients can also have nervous system issues, we do not treat anyone that may have these as our nervous system regulates pain, feelings, breathing etc. although most diabetic people will be okay, it’s just a potential risk.
Is Body Contouring Painful?
Body contouring is not painful. You may feel a little tender in the area the following day as we are massaging the treatment area from anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 hour, but all of our treatments are painless.
What areas can i treat?
You can treat almost all areas of the body, a common misconception is that you can only treat the tummy and thighs, Body contouring is ever advancing and you can treat practically the whole body, from your arms, to backs, to upper knees and even the chin and face! We cater to all concerns.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
The exact number of sessions does depend on each individual person. Many factors play into how many sessions you may need. For example, how much fat your looking to reduce/how loose is the skin your looking to tighten, how your body reacts to the treatment, what your daily lifestyle habits are, how well you follow the aftercare etc.
As a general rule of thumb, an average of 4-8 sessions is recommended to see maximum results.
Is there any downtime?
The best thing about non-invasive body contouring is that there is no downtime! All of our treatments are 100% pain free and with no downtime. On a rare occasion if someone is prone to bruising, you may have slight bruising or redness as a result of the treatment, these are very minor and usually resolve within a day or two.
