Selective RF 

Q. What is Selective Radio Frequency? 
It is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive, non-contact Radiofrequency (RF) device designed to eliminate up to 59% of excess mid-section fat when diet and exercise have failed.  
 
For those who want results but don’t want to undergo the risks and downtime of a surgical procedure such as liposuction, selective radio frequency can help you conquer the core. 
Q. What areas of my body can be treated? V 
Vanquish treats the largest area at one time of any device currently available. Whittle your waist and eliminate the love handles at one time. You can also reduce the muffin top area of the back and hips, upper back fat, and the outer thighs. The Vanquish quickly and affordably improves problem areas that just don’t respond to a healthy diet and exercise. 
Q. Who can have Selective Radio Frequency 
Anyone age 21 upwards can have this treatment and it’s suitable for anyone who wants permanent fat destruction without surgery, regardless of skin colour. Even tanned skin (fake or natural) can safely have this treatment. The ideal patient has mid to moderate adipose tissue to treat and is around 20 pounds of their ideal weight. There are some people who aren’t suitable due to certain health reasons such as metal implants, cancer, immune disorders or bleeding disorders. Your Therapist will be able to discuss this with you in more detail. 
Q. Is there any downtime? 
No. After treatment you may see some reddening of the skin, which should dissipate rapidly and your treatment area will feel warm. Some people find some heat remains for up to a couple of hours after treatment but it is barely noticeable. This is a walk in, walk out treatment. 
 
Will I feel any pain during treatment? Are there any side effects after treatment? Selective Radio Frequency is painless, described by patients as being warm like a heating pad. Because the device does not touch the skin, the only side effects may be skin that feels warm and slightly tender, with minor swelling and redness that normally disappear within a few hours. 
Q. How soon will I see results? 
Results start to show 7-10 days after the first treatment, however most people start to notice after their second treatment. Even after your final treatment, you will find your body is still changing up to a month after that last treatment. 
Q. How does the device work? 
The device, FDA-approved for deep tissue heating, is an arch that extends across the target area without touching the patient. During the session, the patient lies comfortably on a table while the device delivers controlled RF thermal energy to the area, heating the skin to 101 degrees and the underlying fat to 120 degrees, destroying the fat cells. Over the next several weeks, the lymphatic system eliminates the dead fat cells, naturally flushing away excess fat.Is it safe? 
Q. Is it safe? 
Yes! It is VERY safe. It is FDA cleared for deep tissue heating, circumference reduction & adipose tissue and has many clinical studies carried out by scientists and doctors to prove it’s safety and efficacy. 
Q. Does it hurt? 
Does it hurt? 
 
No, this treatment should not hurt at all and no anaesthetic is required. 
Q. How many treatments will I need and how often? 
We usually recommend a course of 6 treatments, however everyone is different and some people may need an extra one or two treatments to get optimal results. During your Consultation your therapist will assess your body and concerns and discuss realistic results. From this you will have a recommended course length. Treatments are booked in every 7-10 days. 
 
How do I prepare for a treatment session? Is there any downtime after treatment? No special prep is needed. The non-surgical treatment requires no anesthesia and no recovery period. You’re free to return to your usual routine as soon as the session is finished. To enhance results, patients are encouraged to be well hydrated the day of and day after treatment and to enjoy a walk or other light exercise. 
Q. How long will my results last? 
Following a course you will find that your results are permanent as once we kill the fat cells, they cannot return. However whether you see an increase in the remaining fat cells in your body is dependent on your lifestyle and other factors such as diet, how much you drink, whether you exercise or not? You may have removed the fat cells from your problem area, however you have millions of fat cells remaining which are more than happy to expand if you overeat! 

RF/US 

Q. What Is RF/US Skin tightening? I 
Its the most advanced technology for tightening loose and sagging skin, reducing wrinkles and shaping the body. This non-invasive treatment can be used to shape and tighten multiple areas of the body, without surgery. It produces fast and long-lasting results with minimal downtime. 
Q. Who Is a Good Candidate for Skin Tightening?  
A good candidate for this non-invasive skin tightening treatment is an adult patient who desires cosmetic improvements in problem areas. A good candidate should also be in good health and not pregnant. The treatment is safe for a variety of skin types, conditions, and ages. 
Q. How Long Does It Take to See Results? M 
Most patient requires four to six treatments to see optimal results but you will start to see improvement after the first treatment. 
Q. How does RF/US treatment work? 
The machine uses thermal energy that is generated by the most advanced monopolar radio frequency. The dual control handpiece has both DTC (Dermal Temperature Control) and EFC (Energy Flow Control) to protect the skin from heat that could harm it, while simultaneously generating consistent energy for dependable results. 
 
The handpiece generates heat within the treatment area to cause the targeted fat cells to break down. This process of reducing fatty deposits also causes the sub dermal collagen to remodel and tighten, resulting in firmer skin. 
Q. What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with This Technology? 
This treatment is effective on the face, neck, arms, knees, thighs, and legs. For men, this technology can be used to tighten the skin and reduce fat in the breast. 
Q. Is There Any Downtime with Skin Tightening Treatment?  
Is There Any Downtime with Skin Tightening Treatment? Since there is no downtime with this treatment, patients usually return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. 

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: 
Redness 
Bruising 
Swelling 
Tenderness 
Numbness (dies down after a couple of hours) 

ACCOR 

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. 

Emshape 

Q. How will EMShape benefit me? 
EMShape helps patients achieve slimmer and more athletic body contours, by reducing fat and simultaneously building muscle. 
When applied to the buttocks EMShape gives our patients a more lifted result. It is one of the only non-invasive buttock lifting procedures where results are permanent. 
 
Patients who are already active and workout regularly will also find that they are generally stronger. They may be able to lift more, hold a plank for longer or squat heavier. Runners and swimmers also find they may be able to perform faster due to a stronger core. Patients who have their abdomen treated also benefit from a more improved posture right after the first session, this can also help to improve lower back pain. 
Q. What does it feel like? 
The EMShape procedure feels like an intensive workout. You can lay down and relax during your treatment sessions. One 30-minute treatment is equivalent to 20,000 sits up or squats, so it really does feel like an intensive workout. Your practitioner will gradually increase the intensity according to what level you find the most comfortable. 
Q. Is there any downtime? 
EMShape is non-invasive and requires no recovery time or any pre/post treatment preparation. You can get back to work immediately following the procedure. 
Q. How long do the results last? 
Clinical studies show that the majority of patients are still happy with their treatment results even a year after their treatment series. We do recommend that you come back in for a review after your treatment to advise on a maintenance program for you. Keeping a healthy lifestyle is also the key to maintaining your results. 
Q. Who is the right candidate? 
Anyone can benefit from the EMShape procedure. During your consultation, you will discuss the exact expectations with your practitioner who will help tailor a specific treatment plan for you. 
Q. What is the treatment? 
Treatments on the abdomen and buttocks take 30 minutes with a minimum of 4 treatments scheduled 2-3 days apart. 
Arm Sculpting takes 20 minutes for the biceps and 20 minutes for the triceps, which would mean a total treatment time of 40 minutes if you opted to have both treated. A minimum of 4 sessions scheduled 2-3 days apart is recommended. 
Q. Will I be sore after my treatment? 
When you go to the gym and work different muscle groups they can rip and then heal back together which causes muscle soreness or ‘DOMS’ (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) for a few days after your workout. This is also caused by the build-up of lactic acid. You may feel a little tender post treatment, as though you have done something, but you will not experience anything like the muscle soreness you get after a workout in the gym. 
Q. How fast will I see results? 
This may vary depending on your age, physical condition, BMI and many other aspects. In general, patients will begin to feel tangible results right after the first treatment. Positive results are usually reported two to four weeks after the last session and continue to improve for several weeks following the treatment.
