FAQ

Our fat reduction treatments are specially designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese.

It is, however, a safe non-surgical alternative to liposuction, as it is particularly intended to reduce stubborn localized fat tissues which are resistant to exercise around the abdomen, hip flanks (love handles), buttocks, thighs (saddle bags), upper arms and bra line, that just won’t go away with diet and exercise.

Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Both men and women can benefit from our aesthetic treatment protocols. Call us at 079 440 2634 to determine if our treatment protocols are right for you.

Yes, it is safe, comfortable and completely painless. Our aesthetic treatments are non-invasive and requires no recovery time – after the treatment you can return to your daily activities as usual.

All those areas with localized fat and cellulite such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Hip flanks (love handles)
  • Thighs (front & back)
  • Buttocks (saddle bags)
  • Upper Arms
  • Back (bra line)
  • Double Chin

We do not treat head, neck, chest, breasts, calves and bony areas.

For a good fat reduction result, we advise to take at least 5 treatment sessions. The exact number of necessary procedures depends on such factors as age, weight and area of treatment. We cannot, unfortunately, assess the client on the phone or via e-mail.

The duration of a treatment session varies depending on the area being treated, but a single session lasts typically 45 minutes when treating a single part of the body. This includes the preparation, treatment and post treatment procedures.

At least 72 hours must pass between each session to allow the body to eliminate the fat – treatment sessions are thus conducted once a week.

Our recommended fat reduction treatment protocols will often yield immediate results, which you can feel, touch and see and it can be long lasting.

Depending on the person, results are visible after the first session. Individual results may vary. Additional sessions may further enhance your results.

Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. For achieving optimal results, at least 5 - 8 sessions are recommended per body part, making it a highly effective treatment.

We recommend that you follow these simple guidelines to obtain the best fat reduction results:

  • Drink plenty of water. It is essential to be well hydrated before each session. Drink at least 1 liter of water before and after each session.
  • It is compulsory to drink 2 - 3 liters of water a day during the entire treatment period. Not only when we do the session, the rest of the days too. Drinking water is a necessary part of the treatment to facilitate the elimination of the broken-down fat.
  • To conserve what is lost in the session and to further strengthen the weight loss, before the first session and during the whole treatment, you must follow a diet low in carbohydrates (avoid bread, rice, pasta, sweet drinks and fatty food), which will cause the body to consume for its day to day energy, the fatty acids released by the treatment protocols and not those ingested. We do not ask for a strict diet, only that you take care of yourself a little.
  • You are not allowed to expose the treated area to the sun or tanning bed at least 2 days prior to the treatment session, as well as 4 days post treatment.
  • Exercise is advisable as well, but not compulsory (for best results, try to stay active during the entire treatment period – after each session we recommend doing a small amount of cardio (brisk walk).
  • For when you cannot exercise, do not worry, we offer you therapy massage that will act on the fat cells, but doesn’t require any effort. Ask us!

Yes, they are – the effectiveness of our fat reduction technologies has been proved around the world. These results will be long lasting, provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise programme. If you over eat or consume too much alcohol, fat can easily be deposited back into the body. Ultimately the result may vary depending on the individual’s different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones.

You can go about your normal activities right away. You may continue to experience a residual buzzing or ringing sound in your ears for up to 24 hours. Skin trauma is rare, however the area treated may retain warmth and transient redness for a few hours afterwards.

On rare occasions there may be a slight possibility of mild side effects such as excessive thirst, or nausea immediately after the treatment, which can be resolved by simply drinking water. You might also experience other rare short-term effects such as mild burning, temporary bruising, tenderness and temporary discolouration of the skin in the treated area, but this is temporary and will usually disappear within a few hours.

It is not uncommon for stool movements to be oily in the days that follow, or for urine to have an unusual smell as excess waste leaves the body. It is vital to keep water intake high during the days following treatment to help flush your system.

Our fat reduction treatments are not for everybody. Even though it is safe and painless, nevertheless there are contraindications for using devices for treatment of localized fat. Such contraindications will depend on the individual’s medical history. Thus, people with the following conditions are not suitable candidates for our fat reduction treatments i.e.

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding (lactation)
  • Epilepsy
  • Cancer
  • Cold or flu symptoms or fever
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Oedema
  • Active infections & immunosuppression
  • Liver, kidney, or heart disease
  • Vascular disease
  • Menstruation
  • Metallic implants (any metal implants i.e. bone pins, pacemaker, etc.)
  • Skin disorder, allergies, or inflammation
  • Recent surgery (you need to wait at least 6 months)
  • Severe hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, diabetes mellitus, or poor circulation of blood and lymph
  • Minors (due to the changing hormonal and fat deposits in the growing body during puberty, we do not treat clients under 18 years of age)

We recommend that you follow these simple guidelines and you will see how your results do not just happen, but that they remain:

  • Drinking water and half an hour of cardio is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat.
  • Essentially, our fat reduction protocols are designed to destabilise and break down fat into carbohydrates and waste material. If not followed by exercise and plenty of water, the destabilised fat will reform and resettle.
  • Think of the process in simple terms. Fat and sound waves. If you put a tub of butter in the microwave and heat it, the butter destabilises into liquid. If you leave it to sit however, it solidifies again.
  • The same applies to this treatment, and that’s why cardiovascular exercise and water are vital.
  • Cardio afterwards serves two purposes: to burn off the released carbohydrates, and to encourage the contraction and expansion of lymphatic vessels to channel out waste. Meanwhile, the water acts to thin that waste and to hasten its removal from the body through the urine.
  • It is compulsory for you to drink 2-3 liters of water a day during the entire treatment period. Not only when we do the session, the rest of the days too.
  • We don't put you on any specific diet, but we recommend that you maintain a low-calorie diet for a few days after the treatment to ensure that the energy released by the treatment is properly utilized and metabolized by the body.
  • To conserve what is lost in the session and to further strengthen the weight loss, before the first session and during the whole treatment, you must follow a diet low in carbohydrates (avoid bread, rice, pasta, sweet drinks and fatty food), which will cause the body to consume for its day to day energy, the fatty acids released by the treatment protocols and not those ingested. We do not ask for a strict diet, only that you take care of yourself a little.
  • After each session, you must perform an exercise that causes sweating, such as a brisk walk of half an hour. It is about your body consuming the fatty acids released in the session, feeding the muscles and thereby burning calories. We know that this require effort, but you have already seen that the reduction after the session is real, you have to do your part!
  • For when you cannot exercise, do not worry, we offer you therapy massage that will act on the fat cells, but doesn’t require any effort. Ask us!
  • You are not allowed to expose the treated area to the sun or tanning bed at least 2 days prior to the treatment session, as well as 4 days post treatment.
