iSculpt Body Contouring uses Decompression Massage Therapy for cellulite reduction and skin toning.
An inexpensive, painless, and non-invasive alternative to facelifts and liposuction.
What is Decompression Massage Therapy?
It is a mechanical means of manipulating the body tissue and muscle structure by reducing atmospheric pressure in a localized area. Cups are applied to the skin and a rhythmic lowering of pressure allows the skin to float up into the cup, separating the tissues below the skin and allowing for increased blood flow to this and the surrounding area.
Will this work for me?
If you already exercise and eat healthy but can't seem to smooth out the cellulite or tighten the skin, iSculpt is for you. You must be willing to drink 8 glasses of water on treatment days to facilitate the removal of toxins from your system.
How long does it take?
Many people will reach optimum results coming 3 times per week for a total of 20 sessions. Initially changes are usually visible after 5 to 10 sessions. Face lift sessions last 20 minutes, body sessions 40 minutes.
Do I have to come 3 times per week?
If you already look great and want to do this as preventative or maintenance, no. But if you want to reduce cellulite, tighten loose skin, or smooth out wrinkles, then yes, 3 times a week for 6 or 7 weeks is a must.
Does anyone need more than 20 sessions?
Yes, particularly is you have lost - or are in the process of losing - a lot of weight and have excess skin, the number of sessions needed will be greater. Another reason you might need more is if you go home every night and turn into a chip-eating couch potato. Decompression massage therapy works, but if you're putting garbage into your body faster than the machine can take it out, well.... you know what that means!
Does it hurt?
No, most people find it relaxing and soothing, and the rhythmic hum of the machine is hypnotic. Lots of people fall asleep or 'zone out' during treatment. If a cup is at all uncomfortable it can be moved, replaced with a different size or shape cup, or the intensity can be turned down.
How long do the results last?
A maintenance session is recommended once every few months, but this can vary widely with each individual. Your diet, exercise regime, and your perception of your body will dictate how often you want to come back for a follow-up treatment.
Will it help me lose weight and/or fat?
No, it is not a substitute for healthy eating and regular exercise. The only way to lose weight and reduce body fat is to burn more calories than you take in.
Are there side-effects?
Sometimes mild ones, but this varies from person to person. Those who already drink lots of water and eat a healthy, balanced diet probably won't notice anything different. Any time you increase circulation you are essentially detoxifying your body. You may notice an increase in volume of both liquid and solid wastes. Some people even feel a little nauseated initially. While that may not be pleasant, keep in mind that it's not so much the machine causing it as it is what you've been putting into your body for so many years. Stirring up all the old toxins won't be pleasant no matter how you do it. And when you compare this to surgical procedures, not to mention the recovery time, it doesn't seem fair to even call these 'side effects'!
What does it cost?
Individual Treatments: Body (40 minutes) $60; Natural Face Lift (20 minutes) $35
Packages: Body - 20 treatments at $45 each = $900; Face Lift - 20 treatments at $25 each = $500.
Is it safe?
While decompression massage therapy is safe for most people, it is not for ladies who are pregnant, or for people with cancer, thrombosis, clotting disorders, aneurisms, or those who have had open heart surgery. If you are on blood thinners or bruise easily, a lower setting must be used to minimize chances of bruising. This will mean slower results. Before starting any iSculpt body contouring program we will discuss your medical history and current lifestyle, as well as any questions or concerns you have.
