Naturally, any new procedure comes with questions. We encourage our clients to ask us questions prior to their session so they will have peace of mind. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions:
Will It Hurt?
No! All of our treatments are non-invasive and pain-free! If you should experience any discomfort please let your technician know immediately so they can adjust your settings. We never want our clients to be uncomfortable or worse, in pain.
What Areas Can You Treat? Most everything from your eyebrows to your knees.
Where Does The Fat Go?
Away. Oh, you wanted a serious answer? OK. After a melt session, your body will continue to process the fat enzymes and it will leave through your body’s natural elimination process. Following the 72 hours after your treatment, you may experience a need to visit the water closet a bit more frequently than usual.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
It depends. Yes. That’s a predictable, albeit sucky answer, but it’s the truth. It depends on your starting body mass, what results you want, what you’re willing to invest and how much time you have.
How Soon Will I See Results?
You did not go to sleep thin and wake up with extra cushion. So, you cannot expect two, three, ten years worth of fat to disappear in a week or two. Depending on the type of melt session you choose, seeing some reduction THE SAME DAY is not uncommon For Lipo-HIFUs, ThermaFirms and CryoMelts noticeable results start in three weeks with full results in about eight to twelve weeks.
Is It Safe?
All of our services utlize FDA cleared technology. Itr’s safe and effective with minimal side effects.
Will I Lose Weight?
No. Our services focus on inch reduction not fat loss. Our goal is to have you between 12% to 30% smaller at the completetion of your sessions Some clients may lose weight, but this is not the norm and is not to be expected.

How Are Your Prices Lower Than Your Competitors?
When going to the pharmacy most insurance companies will charge a lower copay for a generic item versus a higher copay for the brand name. The generic has the same active ingredients and users are able to get the medication they need and feel better. Our services work the same way. This is why you will see our services listed as the actual process instead of the brand name, i.e. Ultherapy, Liposonix, CoolSculpting, etc. Our trained technicians are able to provide you an effective experience in a comfortable setting without the fluff. We have no licensing, royalty or trademark or equipment leasing fees to pay to manufacturers, so we are able to pass on our savings to you.
