Avoid sun beds and no sunbathing during the healing process of the skin (up to 2 weeks – please note every skin type is different)
A review of the clients progress is recommended after 4 weeks (InBody Scan) and again after 12 weeks (InBody scan and photos).
Drink plenty of water
Avoid alcohol the day of treatment
Avoid caffeine the day of treatment
Avoid fatty foods for 4 hours after treatment
Do not wax the treated area for 3-5 days
Do not laser the treated area for 7 days
In order to maintain our high standards of results, we need a little help from you, our clients, to help work with the treatments, not against them. Here are a few things you can do at home to ensure you are getting the best possible results from our treatments.
1. BODY COMPOSITION – VISCERAL FAT LEVEL
Our treatments target stubborn subcutaneous fat, not visceral fat.
Visceral fat is the deep dangerous fat around the organs that can only be influenced through diet, lifestyle (sleep, stress) and exercise. It is therefore important to keep a close eye on your visceral fat levels through the course of the treatments – eat a healthy, balanced diet, keep active, drink water, sleep and manage stress levels. If your lifestyle changes in a negative way, your visceral fat cells will expand and you will put on weight all over the body! This change can have a massive impact on the success of the treatments. Basically, our treatments shrink/kill stubborn subcutaneous fat cells, so if you are expanding your visceral fat cells (through an unhealthy lifestyle) the results of our treatments will be hidden. Your Body Contouring Specialist will go through your InBody scan in detail after your first treatment, so feel free to ask as many questions as you need to. Weekly Body Scans will be conducted to help ensure you are on track to achieve results.
2. WATER CONSUMPTION – FLUSHING OUT THE FAT
All of our treatments are non-invasive meaning no needles or cutting is involved to remove the fat from the body. So how does the fat leave the body? The fat is processed naturally via the liver and lymphatic system. In order for the fat to leave the body correctly, we need to keep our bodies hydrated. Your Body Contouring Specialist will calculate the right amount of water you should be drinking as a minimum for your age, weight and height, after your InBody scan has been completed. Our bodies are made up of around 60% water so with or without treatments, drinking enough water is vital to your overall health.
3. TREATMENT PLAN – DO ENOUGH SESSIONS TO SEE RESULTS
During your consultation, our trained specialists will work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan, usually consisting of more than one type of treatment, to achieve the best possible results for your concerns. We will use our experience and expertise to be able to provide you with the closest guide possible when advising the number of sessions required. Please note, results will vary client to client due to age, lifestyle, condition of the skin and stubbornness of the concern so more than the recommended amount of sessions may be required.
4. GIVE YOUR BODY ENOUGH TIME – TREATMENTS WILL SLOWLY KICK IN
The average clinical end point for our permanent fat reduction treatments, LIPOcel and Cryolipolysis is around 12 weeks. This is because the body needs time to flush out all of the dead fat cells NATURALLY. In most cases, more than one treatment is needed to achieve the desired results, as we can only remove between 20-40% of stubborn fat each session, a very small amount of the total fat pocket. Some clients see results a lot quicker than others however this again will vary person to person. Non-Surgical Body Contouring is a process and we are with you the whole way. All clients receive complimentary InBody Body Composition Scans through their program to help monitor results and keep you on track. Realistically 4 x permanent fat reduction treatments could take a year to reveal the total loss from day 1 of the treatment program so please be patient, we are just as excited about seeing the results as you are.
