So you’ve been exercising regularly. You’ve been eating a healthy diet. You’re feeling great, but you’re still not seeing the results you dreamed of. What can you do? If you have stubborn areas of fat that you want to get rid of, or simply wish the shape of a part of your body was different, you might be wondering if non-surgical body sculpting treatments are right for you.

Body sculpting procedures like those at Lalique Shaped are fast, non-invasive, and help to quickly achieve results. Let’s take a look at some of the commonly asked questions about body sculpting.

  • What is body sculpting?
    Body sculpting targets and kills fat cells in the body without surgery. It allows you to shape and lose stubborn fat in areas such as the upper arms, abdomen, hips, and thighs. Not only does body sculpting help destroy fat, but it also reduces cellulite, promotes healthy blood circulation, and strengthens connective tissue. This procedure is ideal for those who are close to their ideal weight, but have parts of their body they’d like to shape, tighten, tone, or define a little more.
  • How does body sculpting work?
    Body sculpting procedures use different types of energy to kill fat cells and visibly tighten skin. Once the treatment is complete, the body processes and filters out the destroyed fat cells over the course of the next 3-4 months, which is when most people see the full effect of the procedure.
  • Are there different types of body sculpting treatments?
    There are several different types of body sculpting treatments. The three types we’ll focus on here first are treatments using ultrasound , radio frequency, and cold sculpt to target and shape areas. Ultrasound Cavitation uses ultrasound waves to break down fat. Ultrasound frequencies are very gentle on the skin and allow you to precisely target specific areas on your body. Hydration is important. Radiofrequency body sculpting procedures use energy to create heat to tighten loose skin and target unwanted cellulite. This type of procedure specifically goes after the water in fat cells, so it’s important to make sure you’re hydrated beforehand and drink plenty of water afterward. CRYO cool sculpting treatment uses a device that suctions skin and then uses cold temperatures to kill the fat underneath the skin. The cold temperatures do not damage the skin.
  • Is body sculpting safe? Does it hurt?
    Body sculpting is non-invasive and involves little to no pain. Side effects to body sculpting procedures are very minimal, light swelling might a cure depend on client sensitivity, or a warm feeling on the treated area. Still, it’s always a good idea to consider your health history before getting treatment. Please contact to schedule a in person consultation.

    Depending on the type of treatment, your body sculpting appointments may take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour or more.

Appointments will usually be scheduled 1 to twice a week to ensure optimal results. How should I prepare for body sculpting treatments? Most of us have had procedures done where we’re not supposed to eat for 5+ hours beforehand. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about that with body contouring! However, there are a few simple things Lalique Shaped recommends you do before coming in for your body contouring appointment: *Keep your meals light and try not to eat 2 hrs before your scheduled appointment for best result. * Increase your water intake for 2 days beforehand. Because sculpting treatments target the water in fat cells, keeping hydrated before and after your appointment will help the effectiveness of the procedure. *Use the restroom before a scheduled sculpting session. The procedures promote the feeling of wanting to expel the body during the session because your body wants to empty out toxins and fat cells right away. * Healthier life style is recommended, Healthy eating and staying active is important for results.

It is then up to the patient to return home and schedule the rest of his/her massages. It’s Recommended to have at least 12 in total Depending on that patients procedure.
