To help you figure out if this body contouring treatment is right for you, keep reading to learn more about what you can expect.
How Long Does FlexSure Last?
FlexSure results can generally be expected to last for several years. However, your skincare routine, diet, and lifestyle can affect the longevity of your results. Furthermore, there are factors you can’t change, like your genes, that will affect how long your skin tightening results will last. The fat removal results of your treatment will be permanent, but you will still need to monitor your diet. You could store fat in the treated areas in the future.
How Can I Extend My Results?
There is nothing you can do to stop the aging process or the constant force of gravity weighing down on your skin. However, there are steps you can take to ensure that your skin remains tight, smooth, and healthy for as long as possible. For example, your skin tightening results will last longer if you protect your skin from UV damage, both from tanning beds and the sun. Your results will also last longer if you keep your skin hydrated and well-nourished.
To keep your skin hydrated, depending on what type of skin you have, you should moisturize once or twice daily. If you only need to moisturize once per day, consistency is more important than the time of day that you moisturize. To keep your skin nourished, you should eat enough protein and vitamin C every day. A registered dietitian can advise you on how much protein you need based on your activity level, body mass, and body composition.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment works thanks to innovative radiofrequency technology. Once the applicator is wrapped around your body, the device emits sound waves that deeply and evenly heat the tissues in the local area. The fibroblasts in the foundational layer of your skin will be stimulated by this heat and start producing more collagen. Collagen is one of the most important supportive structures that exist to keep your skin tight, smooth, and healthy.
How Quickly Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment starts working immediately. However, it is up to your body to provide the final results. Generally, you can expect to need between three and five treatment sessions. Once your final session is complete, it may take two to three months for your body to flush out all of the destroyed fat cells. It may take several weeks for your body to produce enough extra collagen to tighten your loose, sagging skin.
How Can I See My Skin Tightening Results Faster?
To see your skin tightening results as quickly as possible, it is important that you keep your body fueled. There are a number of ingredients required by your skin to produce collagen, including water, vitamin C, and three amino acids. To get enough amino acids in your diet, eat plenty of high-protein produce, like broccoli, spinach, lentils, and peas. Nuts, seafood, and poultry are also good sources of protein.
It is also important that you get plenty of quality sleep to see your skin tighten up as quickly as possible. You should also aim to get at least 30 to 60 minutes of moderate exercise five days per week. If you still have quite a bit of weight to lose, you may want to get both aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
How Can I See My Fat Loss Results Faster?
Since your fat loss results are delivered by your lymphatic system, bolstering the efficiency of your lymphatic system will help you see your ideal fat loss results faster. Fortunately, a lot of things that are important for collagen production are good for the efficiency of your lymphatic system. For example, you can speed up the rate at which your final results become apparent by staying hydrated and eating nutritious foods.
Just keep in mind that you don’t just need to get plenty of micronutrients and protein in your diet. It is also important that you minimize your consumption of processed food if you want to see your final results as quickly as possible. The more processed foods you eat, the harder your body has to work to break those products down, using valuable time and energy that could have been focused on processing and eliminating dead fat cells.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
One of the most compelling benefits of this radiofrequency-based treatment is you don’t have to do too much to prepare for your treatment. Due to the non-invasive nature of this body contouring treatment, you will not need to fast or stop taking MAOIs prior to treatment. However, it is important that you are well-nourished and hydrated when you come in for your appointment.
It is also important that your skin is not irritated when you come in for your appointment. Therefore, you will need to use sunscreen diligently and avoid using highly acidic skincare products. Furthermore, vitamin A-based skincare products should be avoided, and you should not get laser hair removal in the targeted area within two weeks of your treatment. Other benefits of this treatment include its convenience, efficacy, and comfort.
What Can I Expect During My Treatment?
How long you can expect your treatment to take depends on the scope of your concerns and goals. If you’re only treating one region of your body, your session may only take 15 minutes to complete. On the other hand, your session may take closer to an hour if you are treating several large areas. While we can’t tell you exactly how long your session will take, we will tell you that you shouldn’t anticipate any pain or discomfort.
While your tolerance to heat is unique, you should only expect to feel a deep warmth and slight tingling sensation. One of the reasons this treatment is so convenient is that there is no need for the administration of general or local anesthesia or any type of sedative. This means that you don’t have to worry about driving being unsafe once your treatment is over. In fact, there is no downtime, and you are free to go back to work as soon as your session is complete.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
To find out whether this treatment is right for you, it is imperative that you schedule an initial evaluation with us at InVogue Rejuvenation & Body Sculpting Center by dropping us a line or giving us a call. As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to qualify for this treatment if you are neither underweight nor obese and concerned about loose skin or stubborn pockets of excess fat. Your skin health will also play a deciding role in whether you qualify.
While this treatment is safe for most individuals who are concerned about their contours, it is not appropriate for everyone. For example, it is not appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. We will advise you on whether this is the most appropriate way to achieve your goals once we have evaluated your concerns, discussed your goals, and held an in-depth conversation about your medical history and present health.
What Results Can I Realistically Expect?
You can expect a couple of things from this treatment. First, you can expect your skin to tighten and smooth, making you look younger. Second, you can expect to look significantly slimmer. The heat provided by the radiofrequency energy also melts subcutaneous fat cells.
How much localized fat you can expect to lose depends on several factors, like the amount of subcutaneous fat in the area. However, you shouldn’t be surprised if you lose one-fifth to one-quarter of the fat cells in the area with each treatment session.
