Body Sculp for Weight Loss

BodySculp is a nonsurgical body-contouring treatment that uses diode-laser energy to permanently destroy stubborn fat cells. The treatment is popular for reducing unwanted fat —especially among people who want to avoid a more invasive liposuction procedure.

Each treatment only lasts 25 minutes and may reduce up to 24% of fat cells in the treated area.

What areas of the body can be treated?
BodySculp is FDA-cleared as a non-invasive laser lipolysis treatment for helping remove fat from the:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Inner Thighs
  • Outer Thighs

Designed to safely and effectively destroy unwanted fat cells; the result is a permanent reduction in stubborn fat without surgery or downtime.

Patients can sit back and relax during their BodySculp procedure. With minimal to no discomfort, the laser energy targets and heats fat cells under your skin without harming your skins surface.

How does the treatment work?
BodySculp delivers laser light through the skin to heat up and damage fat cells, while simultaneously cooling the skin. The exposed fat is removed by the body over several weeks. During a treatment, up to four separate applicators may be held against the skin.

How long does it take to see results?
Often people start to see results after six weeks, but the maximum results may take up to twelve weeks. Two BodySculp treatments are typically required to see a noticeable difference.

How many sessions will I need?
The number of treatments will vary for each individual. However, to achieve optimal results, typically two to three treatments are required.

Is the treatment permanent?
A BodySculp treatment does produce permanent fat reduction. The treated fat cells are eliminated and will not regenerate. They are then removed from the body through your on lymphatic system.

How long does it take to perform a BodySculp treatment?
BodySculp can treat up to four areas at a time & each treatment take approximately 25 minutes.

Is there downtime after procedure?
One of the greatest things about a BodySculp treatment is that there is no downtime & patients have few restrictions following a treatment. Treated areas may be red for up to 24 hours.

What should I expect after treatment?
After treatment, you may experience some minor soreness and stiffness.  While unlikely, you may also experience bruising in the treated areas after the procedure. It is important to understand that fat loss does not necessarily cause weight loss. The cause of weight loss is mainly influenced lifestyle, diet, and levels of physical activity. Bodycontouring treatments are a great way to initiate the process of losing weight or simply create a slimmer, shapelier figure.

Hormone Balancing
for Men and Women

 

Do you struggle with:

  • Fatigue
  • Hot flashes/night sweats
  • Decreased libido
  • Depression or anxiety
  • PMS/Menstrual Migraines
  • Difficulty Sleeping at Night
  • Low Testosterone
  • Brain Fog or Not feeling like yourself

If any of these symptoms sound like you, then we can help! The endocrine system is all about hormones and hormones are all about communication.  Dysfunctions in the endocrine system can cause persistent symptoms.  Micronutrient deficiencies, blood sugar dysregulation, disruption of sleep, and the abnormal production of neurotransmitters and hormones must all be considered to achieve balanced wellness.

What is the difference between synthetic hormones & bio-identical hormones?

In our bodies, our hormones work on a lock and key mechanism.  Our own hormones fit the lock exactly allowing the proper message to be delivered easily into the body.  Bio-identical hormones, when carefully and appropriately compounded, also fit the lock almost like our own hormones, allowing them to mimic the actions of our own hormones and keep things in balance.  Synthetic hormones do not usually fit the lock well and must “force” their way in.

I have heard that compounded bio-identical hormones are not FDA approved. Why is that?

In order for the FDA to approve a drug, they must test that drug in the proper dosage and combination.  Because a compounded hormone can come in any dose that the physician determines is needed by the patient; it is not possible to test each of these doses.  Bio-identical hormones that are not compounded and only come in one or two doses (like Prometrium) are FDA approved.  However, this does not mean they are safer than the compounded versions of these hormones.
