Non-Invasive Body Contouring
The newest service offering at You Got the Look Spa and we are so excited!
What is Non-invasive Body Contouring?
To put it simply, it alters the shape of the body. With the use of a variety of advance modalities, we are able to assist guests who are challenged by a muffin top, flabby upper arms, back fat, droopy booty or cellulite.
No scarring and risk of infection.
What methods are used in Non-invasive Body Contouring?
Based on the concerns and health of the guest, we will use one or a combination of advance modalities, such as high-frequency ultrasound cavitation (Lipo-Cavitation), low level laser therapy (Lipo-Laser), radio frequency, wood therapy, ice therapy, mesotherapy, vacuum therapy, electronic muscle stimulation and Far Infrared sauna on a variety of areas of the body.
The methods are pain-free and some guests may find them relaxing.
How long is each session?
Session time ranges from 30 – 75 minutes, depending upon the treatment plan and the area(s) being treated.
How soon will results be seen?
Often, results are visible after the second session. Keep in mind, everyone’s body is different, so results after one session vary. To see significant improvement in a body area, it is recommended that guests receive up to 12 treatments. The number of treatments depend upon several factors, including regular appointments (1-2 times a week), consistent water intake, a clean and proper diet and physical activity. During every appointment, we will conduct a goal and results assessment.
Results are not guaranteed.
Are the effects long-lasting?
It really depends upon the guest. The ultrasound cavitation (lipo-cavitation) and low level laser therapy (laser lipo) permanently destroys fat cells in the treated areas. However, body contouring does not prevent weight gain. Proper diet and adequate water intake along with physical activity play a key role in the lasting effects of body shaping.
Are there any side effects?
Laser Lipo, Lipo Cavitation and wood therapy are very safe methods because they are non-surgical in nature. Some guests may experience pinking of the skin or redness in the treated areas, which should subside within a few hours. Some guests may develop headaches or bloating after a session, which is usually due to lack of hydration. It is very important to drink water and leave the caffeine drinks and alcohol (including wine) alone for 2-3 days prior to and after a session.
Discomfort in treated areas after a session is not unusual because the body has undergone a work out. Guests should refrain from taking aspirin, ibuprofen or any anti-inflammatory medication or supplements.
Guests are encouraged to contact us with any concerns or questions.
