You ask, we answer! With so many options for body sculpting available, it can be tricky choosing just one. That’s why we’re here! We gathered your most pressing questions about body sculpting and brought them to the aestheticians at our award-winning spa. Check out our latest Honolulu MedSpa Q&A just below to find out where to start, why two treatments can be better than one, and why pain is not a problem.
I’m new to body sculpting. How does it work?
There are several ways we’re able to address body fat with non-invasive treatments. In the most advanced technology, we use lasers, often more than one at a time, to target adipose (fat) tissue beneath the skin. The cell can be contracted to release its store of fat, or we can stimulate cell metabolism, or freeze the cell, to the point where the fat cell dies and is naturally eliminated by the body. This is the science behind body sculpting in a nutshell.
Don’t worry — during your complimentary consultation with a Honolulu MedSpa body sculpting expert, you’ll find out a lot more about each treatment, and which one will be most effective for your needs.
Which treatment should I begin with?
That depends on your initial concerns and where you want to invest your time and money. Chances are, you have a specific area or goal you want to work on. We treat each of our patients individually and create personalized treatment plans for each patient based on his or her specific concerns.
What should I address first, loose skin or unwanted fat?
Fat bulges and skin elasticity loss are the two main worries patients bring to us at Honolulu. If there’s stubborn, exercise-resistant fat on the body, we usually recommend treating that first. Afterward we move on to improving skin elasticity; or as some patients say, “Tighten everything up!”
Can I expect better results by combining two types of treatments?
One benefit of combining treatments is a more defined, sculpted physique. If you only want to remove unwanted fat that’s perfectly okay, but almost everyone can benefit from skin tightening too. We encourage you to begin with one treatment for your immediate needs, and then explore complementary treatments for more comprehensive, long-term results.
Are body sculpting treatments painful?
Nothing to worry about here! Although we do mention ‘heat’ when we talk about stimulating cell metabolism, this is almost always a gentle, easily tolerable warmth. Most patients read or even nap through body sculpting treatments, that’s how comfortable they are!
