Body Scuplting anti-cellulite treatment is a non-invasive procedure that reduces appearance of cellulite and improve skin firmness. Body Sculpting stimulates fat cell emptying (lipolysis). A combination of rolling and suction is used to massage and shape the skin and its underlying structures. The skin and the subcutaneous fat cell layer are mobilized and circulation is increased.
The rolling and suction method used in Body Sculpting works in two main ways to improve skin firmness and reduce cellulite:
- The skin and subcutaneous fat cell layer are mobilized; circulation and oxygen is increased to the skin and underlying connective tissue.
- Lymphatic drainage is improved and metabolic toxins are eliminated from the tissues.
The increase in blood, oxygen, and available nutrients stimulates the body’s fat elimination processes and the fat cells begin to shrink. The connective tissue walls are gently stretched, which encourages the fibrous tissue cells to produce better quality collagen and elastin, thus toning and firming the body.
The procedure is painless and has zero downtime. Unlike other fat reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, which can be painful and require an extensive healing time, Body Sculpting is virtually painless and has no downtime. Unlike liposuction, Body Sculpting is non-surgical, which means no incisions, anesthetics, or recovery time. There is no harm to the skin, blood vessels, nerves or connective tissue.

Will I lose weight?
You will most likely notice an improvement in skin tone after your treatment. Appearance of stretch marks and loose skin may be improved. While Body Sculpting is NOT weight loss procedure, many clients report being able to lose weight, especially fat weight, more easily than ever before. This is due to the rearrangement and break down of the fat clusters that makes them more readily available to be burnt during exercise and daily activities.
What sensations will I experience during the treatment? Does it hurt?
The treatment feels like a gentle tug and lift of the skin and deeper layers, rolling in different patterns over the body like a wave. Most clients find it pleasant, but if you have sensitive skin, you may feel slightly sore. The strength of the treatment can be individually adjusted to your comfort level.
What will I feel afterwards?
Most clients report a feeling of relaxation and increase in energy. Since the lymph system is stimulated, it is recommended that you drink 8-10 glasses of water every day during the duration of your treatment in order to aid in elimination.
Are there side effects?
Minor, temporary bruise marks may occur. Some people report a urge to urinate about an hour after treatment. Many clients report feeling refreshed and energetic after their sessions.
Can I receive treatments if I am pregnant?
No correlation has been found between this treatment and complications in pregnancy.
