We know it feels like we’re still inching our way out of winter in Tulsa, but we have summer on our minds in a big way at Skin Care Institute. If you’re interested in honing and toning your curves before bathing suit season rolls around, now is a perfect time to invest in yourself with CoolSculpting® Elite and EMSCULPT®, our leading non-invasive body-contouring technologies. These FDA-cleared treatments are designed to help you trim fat (CoolSculpting) and tone muscle (EMSCULPT) without surgery or downtime. If you’ve been thinking about body contouring, it’s a great time to start treatment.
Here are some tips for realizing your best results.
1. Attitude is everything.
We love our non-invasive body contouring technologies because they serve as the extra help so many of us need to trim fat and tone muscle — to help us take back control of our bodies without sacrificing our lives to the gym! But we also need to stress that body contouring is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Rather, it’s a complement to one. Like everything in life, you get out what you put into it. If you approach your body contouring regimen at Skin Care Institute with hope and optimism, it will energize your transformation and help you maintain your motivation for realizing your best body. If you are energetic and motivated, it is likely that your lifestyle will reflect this with healthy eating habits and exercise. It’s this vital combination of a healthy lifestyle and advanced body contouring treatments that can make or break your results and keep them going for the long term!
2. Timing is key.
Body contouring takes time to reveal your best results. The good news is that you can start to see muscle toning improvements almost immediately with EMSCULPT. (With EMSCULPT, we recommend a minimum of four sessions spaced two to three days apart for optimal benefits.)
For CoolSculpting Elite, once it freezes away your targeted fat cells, it can take up to three months to see the full results, and some patients need a series of treatments to reach their goals. Because CoolSculpting treatments need to be spaced five to six weeks apart, your treatment may span over a few months, so you’ll need to plan accordingly.
3. Schedule a personal consultation.
You don’t know what you don’t know. At Skin Care Institute, we are experts concerning all our services, which means we are trained to understand the nuances of body contouring and which treatment will help you reach your goals the best. A personal consultation is the only surefire way to help you devise the optimal body contouring regimen that works for both your budget and timeline. If you are hoping to create more muscle strength in your abdomen, you’ll likely need a series of four EMSCULPT treatments spaced two days apart. If you’re hoping to reduce a belly budge and gain muscle definition, you’ll likely need to do CoolSculpting Elite fat reduction before pursuing muscle toning with EMSCULPT. What’s more, if you are experiencing textural concerns, you may choose to add a microneedling treatment or laser skin resurfacing treatment to your regimen. No matter what you need, we can help get where you need to go, but you need to call us first!
