Radio Frequency 

Q. How does it work? 
Electromagnetic radiation below the range of 300GHz pierces the skin, effectively heating the dermis to approximately 40 degrees. The dermis is the skin layer below the epidermis. The heat gradually modifies the collagen fibres, causing them to contract and condense (see research). Additional collagen synthesis occurs due to the healing process of the skin, induced by the heat. This eventually results in tighter and healthier looking skin. 
Q. Are there any side affects? 
Radio frequency is completely safe, with earlier types of RF technology either penetrating too deeply or overheating. Conversely, our technology causes no side-effects, other than a little temporary soreness. 
Q. How long will it take me to recover? 
The treatment method is 100% non-invasive; this means no scalpels, needles, anaesthetic or sedation. With no restrictions or limitations imposed, clients are free to resume their lives immediately after the treatment. 
Q. How many sessions will I need? 
The length of procedures varies depending on the targeted area and the number of areas treated. We recommend up to six sessions. 
Our clinicians will give you realistic expectations, and help you to achieve the best results you can by advising you on which course of treatments is ideal for your circumstances. 
Q. Who is an ideal candidate? 
An ideal candidate is anyone who feels they can benefit from tighter, healthier looking skin. All skin types are suitable. 
Q. Is there an age limit? 
Patients must be older than 18. 
Q. What happens during the treatment? 
Skin Tightening FAQ: Each session will begin with cleansing to remove any makeup or oils which could interfere with the treatment. A practitioner will then apply numbing cream to the target area for a few moments before the treatment begins. During the treatment, your temperature will be monitored to ensure the skin surface remains at 40 degrees. 
Throughout the session, you can listen to music, watch a movie or use our iPads to entertain yourself. 
Q. What areas can I have treated? 
Radio frequency is used on any part of the body where skin is loose, sagging or showing signs of wrinkles, including the face. 

Ultrasound Cavitation 

Q. What is Ultrasound Cavitation? 
Ultrasound Cavitation is a natural phenomenon based on using ultrasonic waves to mechanically disrupt the membrane of a fat cell. The ultrasound wave creates a vibration within the adipose tissue. The structure of the fat cell cannot withstand the vibration and the cell membrane quickly breaks down. This type of sound wave reduces the fat cells without causing damage to any other tissues or organs.This method of fat reduction eliminates fat cells from the body safely via your lymphatic system. 
Q. What happens during my treatment? 
During the ultrasound cavitation treatment, the practitioner applies a specially-designed hand piece to your skin. 
The hand piece transmits low-level ultrasonic waves that cause ‘cavitation’ in the fat tissues. Cavitation occurs when tiny cavities or bubbles form in response to rapid changes in pressure. This action leads to the breaking down of the fat cells into a more liquid (emulsified) form. 
You may feel only slight discomfort from the action of the ultrasound hand piece on your body, and a sensation of warmth, but no pain. (It’s unlikely for the hand piece to become too warm. However, should it feel too warm, we would apply more ultrasound gel to your skin to help cool it down.) 
How long the treatment takes depends on the size of the area and the thickness of the fat layer, but most sessions last between 30 and 60 minutes. 
Q. How long does the treatment take? 
Depending on the size of the are you need treated, you will have a session of either 30, 60 or 90 minutes. 
Q. How quickly will I see results with Ultrasound Cavitation? 
Many clients have seen some immediate inch loss following their first treatment but this does vary among individual clients. Results continue as the treatment programme progresses.We recommend a course of 8 sessions to achieve the best results. 
Q. Does Ultrasound Cavitation hurt? 
Treatments do not hurt and are mostly relaxing. 
Q. How many treatments will I need? 
For the best results we recommend a course of 8 Ultrasound Cavitation treatments. 
Q. How long do Ultrasound Cavitation results last for? 
Your results following a course of Ultrasound Cavitation will be long lasting if you maintain your weight.For results to last long term we strongly recommend that you maintain a healthy weight through healthy eating, regular exercise and good lifestyle choices. This will prevent your body from storing excess energy in other fat cells or areas. 
Q. Will ultrasound cavitation help me to lose weight? 
Ultrasound cavitation is a body-reshaping or ‘body-sculpting’ cosmetic procedure, rather than a way to lose weight or a treatment for obesity. 
It can help to reduce stubborn, hard-to-shift areas of fat – such as ‘love handles’ – that have not responded to sustained exercise and diet 
Q. Are there any side effects? 
Ultrasound cavitation is a safe, non-surgical procedure that has few if any side effects and little or no downtime. 
The ultrasonic energy levels created by the device are carefully controlled to target only specific fat cells and not affect other organs or tissue. 
You may experience short-term, mild redness, and some patients report feelings of thirst and nausea. You can help to resolve this by drinking water immediately before and after the treatment. 
Before and after your ultrasound cavitation treatments 
We recommend increasing your water intake 2-3 days prior to treatment 
No alcohol the night before treatment 
Avoid heavy meals prior to treatment 
Drink plenty of water after your treatment (approx. 2-3 litres per day) 
Body brushing helps see quicker results 

Fat Freezing 

Q. How effective is a Fat Freezing treatment? 
The system uses a powerful non-invasive suction to target areas of your body with unwanted/ excess fat. A single treatment can destroy on anywhere between 11-59% of fat in one single treatment. 
Q. What does it feel like? 
The cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel a strong pressure and intense cold. This soon dissapates. Many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during the treatment. 
Q. What will my results be? 
Each treatment results in a significant noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area, typically between 20% to 40%. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even greater fat loss. Many clients find that just one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your therapist will discuss a design plan that suits you best. 
Q. How do I take care of myself after the Fat Freezing treatment? 
In order to achieve optimum results, we strongly recommend the following: 
Increase your fluid intake (water) to assist with the ‘flushing’ out of the crystallized lipids in the fat cells. 
Lymphatic massage will accelerate the process of removing the fat cells. 
Regular body brushing at home is a great way of stimulating the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells. 
Exercise a minimum of 1 hour a week. 
Healthy eating. 
It is extremely important for us to be able to monitor your measurements post Lipoglaze® procedure. 
*Please note: should any adverse reaction occur including a cold injury, or painful blisters. Please seek medical attention from a doctor specialising in the treatment of burns. 
Q. Am I a good candidate for Fat Freezing? 
Freezing is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they'd like to get rid of. Your therapist will determine if treatment is right for you during a free one-to-one consultation. 
Q. How many sessions will I require? 
The number of sessions you require will depend on your desired result in mind. This will be discussed upon your initial consultation, however typically an individual will require a minimum of 1 treatment in order to achieve results. 
Q. Can I treat more than one area at a time? 
Yes! You can have a maximum of four areas treated in one session. This will take approximately two hours. 
Q. How long will the results last? 
The longevity of the results will be lifestyle dependent, however can last for years if a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Further information of which will be discussed at consultation. 
Q. Are there any side effects with Fat Freezing? 
As with many cosmetic treatments, side effects occur as an initial response to treatment however more often than not die down instantly. All potential side effects will be discussed during consultation however the more common ones you can expect following treatment are: 
Numbness (dies down after a couple of hours) 


Q. Does the procedure hurt? 
Before the procedure is carried out, a topical local anaesthetic is applied to numb the area. This is left on for at least an hour so the procedure itself is practically painless.  
The ACCOR pen uses much lower frequency than other plasma pens available therefore resulting in reduced discomfort.  
Q. How many treatments will i need? 
The results will depend on each individual and how much work is needed. Generally speaking only one or two treatements are required. You will see results instantly after treatment and they will continue to improve for approximately 12 weeks after treatment. This will all be explained during your FREE consultation before hand.  
Q. What after care is there? 
You will of course be provided with all after care instructions at your appointment however you will need to keep the area dry until the scabs have fallen off, use a very good SPF for at least 3 months after treatment, avoid sauna, sunbeds and anthing that involves heavy sweating until the scabs have fallen off.  
Q. Who will perform my treatment? 
All staff at Essex Body Sculpture are medically trained and fully registered so you will be in very safe hands!  
Q. How long will a treatment take? 
You can expect to be with us between and an hour and a half and two hours on the day of treatment. The first hour will simply be relaxing in the chair whilst the local anaesthetic starts to work. 
Q. Will I be able to drive after my eye treatment? 
Generally speaking most people have no problem driving straight after treatement. If you would feel more comfortable having a friend with you then please feel free.  
Q. Can I have a treatment if I am pregnant or breast feeding? 
No! Sorry! 
You will need to wait until you are no longer breast feeding. 
Q. Can you remove moles? 
Only benign skin mutations can be removed for aesthetic reasons. All mole removals will only be done after a skin specialist has made an official diagnosis declaring the benignity of the mole.  
Q. Do I need a skin test? 
Yes! Absolutely! We would not treat anyone who hadnt been skin tested at least two weeks prior to treatment It is so important to rule out any potential reactions before receiving any treatments on your face.  
The skin test will involve a patch test on your inner arm, consisting of about ten small dots. 
One of the biggest reactions we are looking for is keloid scarring, which is a genetic disorder.  
Q. Is it safe and what effects can I expect after treatment? 
Yes it is considered very safe! Accor is considered and non-invasive treatment and therefore much safer and gentler than a surgical procedure. 
You can expect some (generally mild) swelling after treatment which can last for a few days. The procedure leaves some very tiny craters in the surface of the skin, which scab over after a day or so. These will generally fall over over the following 3-5 days so long as the area is kept dry.  
Once the scabs fall off, you can expect some very faint red dots on the skin for a week or so however these can be covered with makeup.  
Q. Can everyone have a treatment? 
At your free consultation, you will be very carefully medically assessed to check you are suitable for treatment and that you have no contra indications 
Q. Can I cover the dots with make-up? 
Whilst the little scabs are in situ, you can only use bare minerals make up or medical grade cover up foundation. This will be discussed at consultation and if you wish to purchase some oxygenetix cover foundation then you can be colour matched. After the scabs have come off you can go back to wearing your regular mke up.  
Q. How long will the results last? 
ACCOR can help reverse the signs of ageing but unfortunately cannot halt the signs of ageing! The results generally last between two to three years which is considerably longer than botox and fillers. Body skin tightening treatments can last sunstantially longer. 
Q. Can I have a treatment if I have had fillers? 
If you wish to have ACCOR in the same area that you have had filler then you will need to wait at least two months after the last filler injection. 
Q. How quickly can I have another treatement? 
All follow up treatments may only be performed 12 weeks after the initial treatment. This is due to the healing and tightening process lasting 3 months. 
Q. How much are follow up treatments on the same area? 
Any follow up treatments are discounted by 50% of the full priced treatment cost.
