CryoSculpt FAQ

CryoSculpt is a fat loss treatment that allows clients to target unwanted areas of stubborn fat. It is non-invasive, all-natural, and is used for slimming, tightening, and toning. Some clients see results after one session, but for most the best results can be seen after 5 – 10 sessions. Cryo treatments are designed to contour the body by eliminating fat cells on hard-to-target areas without any pain, downtime, needles, or surgery.

It should be noted that the best results will appear after multiple treatments, but changes can start to be noticed from 4-8 weeks after the start of treatment and improvements can continue for several months after the end of your treatments. Individual results vary based on your body’s individual response, and variables such as how much fat you have, how dense it is, and how much you are looking to lose.

Lasting results can be achieved by maintaining a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Once the fat cell wall is broken down and the content processed and flushed away by the lymph system, it’s gone. However, if unhealthy diet and exercise routines persist, new fat may be stored where the old fat contents were released.

Everybody has a different starting point, different bodily responses to treatments, and different fitness goals. For most, multiple treatments will offer the best results, we typically recommend a minimum of 5 treatments and some people will need up to 10 or more to get the results they seek. The more treatments you do, the better the results.

Not at all, CryoSculpt is non-invasive & totally painless, with no downtime. Treatments are 100% safe, there are no known dangerous side effects. Most people find the treatments to be soothing and even relaxing. Think of them as a chance to pamper, relax and take care of yourself while we slim away that stubborn fat.

YES! Our results are proof. Many people have doubts about whether these treatments actually get results. We rented our cryo machine for 3 months to test the effectiveness of treatments claimed by the manufacturers. ​We were so impressed by the CryoSculpt results that we decided to invest in a machine, and are so excited to be able to offer you these amazing treatments.

Yes! CryoSculpt is safe and all-natural. It uses cryolipolysis or cold temperatures to kill fat cells. People first began using cryolipolysis for cosmetic treatments in 2007 and have continued to use this method of fat reduction safely for over a decade and a half. Multiple clinical studies on the safety and efficacy of this treatment have been done. ​The American Society of Plastic Surgeons published their findings in a report in 2015, and you can read it here.

The biggest difference between CryoSculpt and coolsculpting® is the method of application, coolsculpting® uses a vacuum application which is painful, and limits the area that can be treated. ​Our Cryo21 machine uses a mobile handle which we use to manually massage cold temperatures into the tissue. This method is more comfortable – even relaxing, and allows us to contour the treatment exactly to where you need it.

CryoSculpt treatments last from 20-30 minutes depending on which areas are treated.

CryoSculpt fat reduction sessions can be done every 2 weeks. All other treatments can be done from 1-3x per week.

Essentially, all parts of the body where subcutaneous deposits of fat can be found may be treated, we like to focus on those areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. Most areas you would want to treat can be treated.

Here are some popular treatments: Fat Reduction, Double Chin, Belly Fat, Love Handles, Bra-line/Back Fat, Inner Thigh Gap Slimming, Man Boobs, Skin Tightening, Arms, Stomach, ​Thighs, Neck/Decollete, & ​Face

Side effects are minimal but Fat Reduction treatments can cause itchy red/pink skin directly after treatment, delayed onset muscle soreness, and discolored urine as your lymph flushes out the fat cell debris.

CryoSculpt treatments are designed for you if you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle because your body and appearance are important to you, you struggle to get rid of stubborn unwanted body fat in targeted areas, or you want to improve the way you feel in and about your body. The best results for fat reduction are shown on people who are already trying to lose weight by maintaining a healthy diet and active lifestyle.

Contour Light® Red Light Therapy FAQ

Contour Light Red Light Therapy is a revolutionary body contouring treatment that can help you lose inches and eliminate fat from various parts of your body. Through the power of advanced LED technology, you’ll be able to tone your waist, hips, thighs, neck, back, arms, and other problem areas.

Once the unique light is emitted from the FDA-cleared device, your fat membranes will break down the fat into fatty free acids and glycerol so that it can enter the bloodstream and quickly be eliminated by your body.

Contour Light Red Light Therapy offers a number of benefits. It has the incredible ability to stimulate and tighten skin, rejuvenate skin tone and texture, and decrease cortisol levels while increasing serotonin.

It is recommended to follow a program of 2-3 treatments per week for 5-8 weeks to see best results. 48 hours are needed between treatments.

On the day of your appointment, we recommend drinking 8-10 glasses of water, as well as fasting for two hours before and after your treatment. We also advise doing 12 minutes of interval cardio following treatment to help your body process and eliminate. For the best results, we also suggest clients avoid alcohol, decrease caffeine intake, and follow a low-fat, low-carb diet during their treatment course.

While you may see results as soon as after the first Contour Light® Red Light Therapy session, most clients enjoy a most noticeable difference in the last 25% of treatments.

There are no known side effects from red light therapy. However significant overexposure can cause mild skin burns and detox-like symptoms.

Depending on your goals you will be under the lights for 15-30 minutes, typically fat reduction treatments are 25 minutes. We also recommend 10 minutes post treatment on our vibration plate to help push the fat into your lymph system for processing.

This depends on your goals. The best fat reduction results are seen with a minimum of 16 sessions. However, if you just want to relax and receive the many other benefits of red light therapy, treatments once a week or once a month may be right for you.

No. Contour Light sessions are extremely relaxing, like being wrapped in a warm blanket. It’s a great way to take a time out and reset your body and your mind.

Very safe. There are no known side effects for red light therapy and Contour Light is FDA approved.

Treatments are not recommended for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a pacemaker or those have medical issues with the liver.
