FAQ

Treat yourself.  You’ve earned it.

Fresh Laser Spa uses a combination of Ultrasound Cavitation for Body Sculpting and Radio Frequency for Skin Tightening.


Is this considered liposuction?

No. Liposuction is an invasive procedure that removes the entire area of fat cells from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia.

You will be receiving Ultrasound Cavitation treatments.  Unlike liposuction surgery, Ultrasound Cavitation is a safe, external treatment. This method provides results without the dangers associated with surgery, while at the same time allowing patients to remain active during and after treatment.


How does Ultrasound Cavitation Body Sculpting work?

Ultrasound Cavitation is completely safe and non-invasive.  During the treatment, a technician will massage the treatment area with a handpiece that generates infared heat.  This method causes infared heat to empty fat cell contents, leaving the cells undamaged. The cell contents are made up of triglycerides, which consist of water, glycerol and free fatty acids. Following a treatment the glycerol or sugar is rapidly absorbed by the body. The water carries the free fatty acids through the lymphatic system.  They are then used by the body for energy or carried through the kidneys and are then passed out of the body in your urine.


How does Radio Frequency Skin Tightening work?

After emptying fat cell contents, Radio Frequency is used to generate infrared heat which causes soft tissues to coagulate, giving skin a tighter appearance. Collagen regrowth is stimulated, which helps to give skin a firmer, more youthful look.

Upon heating collagen, skin tightens because of immediate collagen fiber contraction and, also, from delayed new collagen formation.  Clients can see an immediate improvement with just one treatment, and the results will continue to improve over the next several months.


Does it hurt?

No!  There is no pain during or after the treatment.  In fact, many people consider it very relaxing and similar in feel to a hot stone massage.


Are there any harmful after effects?

No!  Because this is a non-invasive treatment, there is no downtime or healing required.  You are able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment.


How long will it take to see results?

Although individual results may vary, most clients see results during the first treatment.  A typical client will lose between 1-2 inches during a single session around the stomach; this is also heavily dependent on the depth of the fat layer. Results in other target areas will be more varied.

Commitment to the treatment and a healthy eating plan will ensure maximum results. The exercise program after each treatment is important to allow the fat released during the treatment to be used up as energy.  A typical client can expect to reduce an area by 1-2 dress sizes during the Fresh Laser Spa 8-WEEK CHALLENGE.


What is the 8-WEEK CHALLENGE?

Fresh Laser Spa recommends the 8 WEEK CHALLENGE.  The challenge consists of eight treatments, one week apart.  The challenge encourages a client to look at Body Contouring/Skin Tightening not as a “quick fix”, but as a jump start!  The goal is to promote a holistic approach combining a healthy eating plan, regular exercise and the 8-WEEK CHALLENGE so as to modify behavior and encourage long-term, healthy habits.


How long will the results last?

As long as you maintain your weight, diet and exercise, the inch loss will be long-lasting.  An annual booster session following a course of treatments are highly recommended to keep your body in its ideal shape.
