What You Need To Know About Weight Loss & Skin Tightening/Body Contouring Treatments
Our most popular skin tightening treatment is the Radio Frequencey (RF) Body Contouring. Safe, highly effective, and our technology provides a comfortable and relaxing spa experience using the newest technology on the market, we will help you achieve your weight loss and skin tightening goals!
We use The Reform™ and the Accent XL by Alma Lasers.
The Reform™ offers patented UniPolarTM technology and uses dielectric heating achieved with an RF frequency of 40.68 MHz. The Reform™ sends 40.68 million transmissions per second to the tissue. Used successfully worldwide, Reform™ body contouring treatments are safe, effective, and suitable for any skin type. This form of treatment overcomes the challenges of age-related skin imperfections, cellulite, enhances skin tone, and tightens the skin.
The Alma Accent XL™ can rejuvenate the skins texture and firmness in a pain-free procedure. Featuring IN-Motion, which gradually heats the body at different depths:
- BiPolar Head – This head is the superficial of the three, heating the top layers of the dermis locally. With 40MHz, the BiPolar Head also allows us to tighten smaller areas such as the face but with more power than the 6MHz with ThermaCool™ by Thermage or 1MHz with the Elos™ by Syneron™.
- UniPolar Head – Reaching up to 20mm in depth, the UniPolar head is great for increasing blood circulation, and inducing fat cells that get drained out of the body from the lymphatic system.
- UniLarge Head – The UniLarge Head uses the same technology as the UniPolar head but covers double the surface area. It has 50% more energy and can cover areas 30% faster which helps to deliver faster treatment times.
Before you decide to move forward with body contouring treatments, we highly recommend booking a complimentary consultation with one of our highly trained staff members. During a consultation, we can determine whether this would be the best treatment option for you, along with approximately how many treatments you’ll need based on your skin type, age, and goals. During your consultation, you will also have an opportunity to ask any and all questions that you have so that you can make the best decision for you.
We highly recommend drinking at least 1 bottle of water before your treatment, and lots of water after. Drinking water works synergistically with body contouring as it aids your body in draining adipose tissue from your body through the lymphatic system.
During treatment, you can expect to feel a warming sensation as the Reform technology uses dielectric heating to break up fat cells. Treatments are painless, and if you do experience any mild discomfort, it is important that you communicate this with your medical aesthetician so that she can adjust the frequency of the machine.
Drinking lots of water after your treatments to further assist your body’s lymphatic system in draining out excess adipose tissue. You can expect to notice firmer skin a few hours to 24 hours after your treatment. Results will vary depending on your skin’s elasticity, your age, skin type, and gender, however typically you will see results almost immediately.
List of Benefits:
- Collagen fibers contract and multiply, which firms and improves laxity.
- Connective tissue contracts to improve the skin’s contour, texture and architecture.
- Circulation improves and retained fluids drain from subcutaneous adipose tissue (cellulite) to reduce edema, erythema and overall volume.
Are body contouring treatments safe?
Yes, body contouring treatments are safe and have been approved by the FDA.
How do I know this is the best treatment option for me?
During a free consultation, one of our trained Medical Aestheticians will provide a free skin analysis to determine which treatment would be most appropriate for your skin type and goals. We always recommend that incorporating Radio Frequency Body Contouring treatments be accompanied by an active lifestyle, and a healthy diet for best results.
Are these treatments painful?
Body contouring treatments conducted with The Reform by Alma Lasers are not painful. You will experience a warming sensation on your skin, however, it should not be uncomfortable. If you are experiencing any discomfort be sure to tell your Medical Aesthetician during the treatment and they will adjust the settings on the machine accordingly.
Is there down-time after body contouring treatments?
There is no down-time needed after body contouring treatments. You can resume normal daily activities immediately after leaving the clinic which is why Radio-Frequency is one of the top-tier weight loss/skin tightening solutions in the world.
Will I see results right away?
Everyone has a unique skin type and level of skin health and will experience results differently. With that being said it is more likely that you will see results after one treatment. Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need a series of treatments to see full results.
