HotSculpting™ Body Contouring and Tightening
We all have an ideal shape that we aspire to. Some of us have achieved it and others are still working towards their goal to sculpt a body they feel comfortable in. Often we have stubborn areas that need a little extra help. Hotsculpting provides that help by eliminating fat with no surgery, no downtime and immediately visible results.
The Science of Hotsculpting:
Hotsculpting is a unique procedure that uses lasers to safely and comfortly focus energy to the fat beneath the skin. The laser heats the fat causing natural cell death, while leaving the skin unharmed. As the fat breaks down, your body either naturally processes it or eliminates it. During the same treatment, the heat from the laser contracts the collagen fibres to tighten your skin and rejuvenate the surface.
Two Processes in ONE:
Hotsculpting is a unique, on-invasive treatment that combines two procedures in one; the reduction of fat and tightening of skin. To achieve the same results as Hotsculpting, other treatments require you to undergo two separate procedures; one to reduce fat, with patients waiting months for results and another later to tighten the skin. Those extends the time it takes to achieve your ideal shape. With Hotsulpting, these procedures are combined to give you quicker, more immediate results.
Common Questions: How can a laser get rid of fat cells?
A: The laser safely and rapidly heats up your skin, targeting its energy to the level beneath your skin where the fat exists. Your fat is heated by the laser energy causing it to break down and die. Once the fat is affected and eliminated, it is gone for good.
What can I expect from the treatment?
A: Each person is different but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or minor swelling that will diminish after a few hours. You can resume your daily activities immediately following the treatment.
Where does the fat go?
A: After the treatment, the fat breaks down and is either naturally processed by the body or eliminated from the body all together.
What does it feel like?
The first part of the treatment consists of deep heating over the desired treatment area. Initially you may feel a gradual warming and after a few minutes you may experience some vary brief hot sensations in the treatment area. The overall sensation can be similar to a hot stone massage or a dry sauna. The second part involves more superficial heating. Depending on the treatment area, the heat generated is slightly more intense but still very tolerable. Post treatment your skin will feel warm to the touch and may be pink or even red for a few days.
How long does it take to see results?
Result will vary with every individual. Most patients will see immediate tightening followed by a gradual change in contour as your fat breaks down. Depending on your desired results, you may require multiple treatments.
