Hot Sculpting™

What is Hot Sculpting?

Hotsculpting is a treatment that combines two procedures in one to eliminate unwanted fat and tighten the skin. A laser gently and safely heats the fat to the point of cell death which are then processed or eliminated from the body. At the same time the laser tightens the skin by generating new collagen, resulting in an overall improvement of contour laxity and elasticity in the treated areas.

How does it work?

Before

Often many of us have stubborn areas of fat that need a little extra help

Hotscuplting uses focused energy to heat the fat causing natural cell death while leaving the skin unharmed

As the fat cells break down, your body either naturally processes it or eliminates it permanently

During the same treatment, the heat from the laser contracts the collagen fibres to tighten and rejuvenate your skin

After

The result is your ideal shape that you feel comfortable in.

Which areas of the body that can be sculpted?

Any area of the body:

Face/Jawline (contouring)
Back
Arms
Abs

How can a laser get rid of fat cells?

The laser safely and rapidly heats up your skin, targeting its energy to the level beneath your skin where the fat exists. Your fat is heated by the laser energy causing it to break down and die. Once the fat is affected and eliminated, it is gone for good.

What can I expect from the treatment?

Each person is different but you can expect minimal to no discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or minor swelling that will diminish after a few hours. You can resume your daily activies immediately following the treatment.

Where does the fat go?

After the treatment, the fat breaks down and is either naturally processed by the body or eliminated from the body all together.

What does it feel like?

The first part of the treatment consists of deep heating over the desired treatment area. Initially you may feel a gradual warming and after a few minutes you may experience some very brief hot sensations in the treatment area. The overall sensation can be similar to a hot stone massage or dry sauna. The second part involves more superfical heating. Depending on the treatment area, the heat generated is slightly more intense but very tolerable. Post treatment your skin will feel warm to the touch and may be pink or even red for a few days.

How long does it take to see results?

Results will vary with every individual. Most patients will see immediate tightening followed by a gradual change in contour as your fat breaks down. Depending on your desired results, you may require multiple treatments.

Post Treatment Recommendations

Post treatment recommendations  after a  Hot Sculpting Treatment

The fat cells that have been destroyed during treatment will release the triglycerides, which are then broken down into 3 free fatty acids and glycerol, and transported to the liver to be used as energy. During your course of treatment we recommend that you follow a healthy lifestyle nutrition plan in order to facilitate and utilize the released free fatty acids as a source of energy and nutrients for the body. This will ensure optimization of your program and therefore may improve the results.

REMEMBER!

Drink at least 2 liters of water a day.

It’s a well known fact that water consumption contributes and facilitates the fat clearance metabolic pathways. Consuming enough water reduces hunger, increases metabolism and stimulates the circulation.

Do:

  • Have lots of vegetables with your meal! Veggies are loaded with fibers, and fibers are great for because it fills you up- for fewer calories. It also helps keep the flow of sugar into your bloodstream slow and steady, so less insulin is released. (Insulin promotes the storage of body fat). Steamed vegetables are the best option as they maintain all the vitamins and nutrients.
  • Swap white bread, pasta and rice for wholegrain versions. Research shows those eating wholegrain lost more fat!
  • Replace red meat with white meat, such as turkey, chicken, and fish. These meats are generally lower in fat.
  • Eat foods rich in calcium such as low-fat yogurt and milk. Evidence shows that they can help to reduce the amount of fat absorbed from food. Danish researchers have found that those eating medium-high calcium meals had 17%-19% lower levels of fat in their blood than those eating low calcium meals.

Avoid:

  • Do NOT skip meals – this may slow down your metabolism which may affect the rate at which the fat released from the treatment is used.
  • Do NOT eat processed meals such as ready meals as these contain lots of saturated fat, artificial ingredients and salt.
  • Reduce intake of fatty foods – this includes takeaways such as pizza, burgers, chips, cheese, butter, oil, poultry skin etc.
  • Reduce intake of refined carbohydrates – such as white bread, white pasta and rice and sugar.
  • Avoid sugary snacks and desserts – they are very high in sugar and this is converted into fat!
  • Avoid alcohol – this is very high in sugar as well! Try to avoid alcohol for at least 4 days after treatment, preferably for 1 week. Dry red wine will be the best option since it is the lowest in sugar from most alcoholic drinks.

We all have an ideal shape that we aspire to. Some of us have achieved it and others are still working towards their goal to scuplt a body they feel comfortable in. Often we have stubborn areas that need a little extra help. Hotsculpting provides that help by eliminating fat with no surgery, no downtime, and immediately visible results.

The science of Hotscuplting is a unique procedure that uses lasers to safely and comfortably focus energy to the fat beneath the skin. The laser heats the fat causing natural cell death, while leaving the skin unharmed. As the fat breaks down, your body either naturally processes it or eliminates it. During the same treatment, the heat from the laser contracts collagen fibres to tighten your skin and rejuvenate the surface. The results is your ideal shape that you feel comfortable in.

Hotscuplting is a unique, non-invasive treatment that combines two procedures in one; the reduction of fat and tightening of the skin. To achieve the same results as Hotscuplting, other treatments require you to undergo two separate procedures; one to reduce fat, with patients waiting months for results and another later on to tighten the skin. This extends the time it takes to achieve your ideal shape. With Hotscuplting, these procedures are combined to give you quicker, more immediate results.

I was a registered nurse for 12 years, I have a strong medical background as well as I have been to a few medi spa/medi spa style offices in the past and I feel like Kam is the more knowledgeable person in her areas of expertise. She really takes the time to talk to you about what you are looking for, she is honest with timing and expectations. I was interested in something and she told me that it wasn’t something she was going to do based on my plans to get pregnant and that it would just be a waste of money. Others would have just taken the money, but not Kam. She is authentic and real. She makes uncomfortable or nervous situations more relaxing. The atmosphere is beautiful and tranquil. I have had multiple different treatments with Kam from body contouring to laser hair removal and I would recommend anyone, even my mom and sister, to use her. I feel like her prices are good and mixed with the services and expertise they are well worth it.

I’ve never had such an amazing consultation in my life. I don’t have a deep understanding on skin care and body care but Vancouver medispa got me hooked!

Kam was extremely passionate, knowledgable and informative about the services she offered. This is a woman that knows her craft. I carried no apprehension on whether I was being upsold on services I didn’t need because everything she recommended aligned with my existing intents when booking. I even showed interest in some of her most high priced services and she told me it wasn’t necessary and pointed me in the right direction.

Her space was clean, beautifully set up, sanitary and professional. I felt completely comfortable during my services. During my entire service kam kept filling my brain with more in depth knowledge on how the services worked and what was happening internally, it’s extremely comforting having a technician that knows the in’s and outs of their system.

**UPDATE: its two weeks after my hot sculpting service. I’ve been to many competing medispas, but Vancouver Medispa has my business after my amazing experience! After just 1 treatment I’ve already noticed a huge reduction in my midsection. She recommended 3 sessions which is mind blowing because my old clinic recommended 7. I’m a client for life!
