General Information about the Sonic Body Shaping Station
Helen White Hair Removal and Body Design is the only office in the coastal bend to offer body contouring with the Sonic Body Shaping Station. The Sonic Body Shaping Station is unique and differs from many of the current body contouring devices available as it combines three of the most effective modalities for body contouring/slimming, cellulite melting/implosion, fat melting/implosion, weight reduction, skin tightening, lymphatic drainage, and metabolic improvement and acceleration. These modalities include Unipolar/ Monopolar, Bipolar, and Tripolar Radio Frequency, Ultrasonic Fat Cavitation, and Vacuum Therapy.
Unipolar/ Monopolar radiofrequency treatment heats the collagen causing it to contract or tighten giving the skin a tighter appearance as well as softer or diminished lines and wrinkles. This is followed by a growth of collagen, which lifts the skin without damage to the epidermis.
Bipolar radiofrequency uses two electrodes that deliver currents to the tissue between those electrodes. This is used primarily for skin tightening, the reduction of sagging, and wrinkle reduction (most commonly in the face and neck)
Tripolar radiofrequency penetrates the deepest layers of the skin without damaging the outer layer. This boosts the production of fibroblasts and new collagen as well as blood circulation through vasodilatation which results in better oxygen supply necessary for fat metabolism. This means a decrease in cellulite, elimination of toxins, a reduction of fat accumulation in the body, and healthier tissues.
Ultrasound Fat Cavitation is the utilization of sound waves (above human hearing) to caivitate and destroy fat cells. This works to reduce the fat in your body by converting the fat into a liquid which is then emptied through the lymphatic system. This is accomplished through ultrasound waves which create a bubble in the tissue of the fat cells that expands rapidly then compresses creating a temperature increase and an implosion. We then combine this with monopolar radiofrequency to tighten and lift the skin.
Vacuum therapy provides lymphatic drainage through massage and suction making the entire process that much faster. We combine this with the Tripolar radiofrequency to aid in the elimination of the toxins from the body.
Fat is stored primarily as triglycerides inside adipocytes cells located between the muscles and skin. Though the number of fat cells are the same in each person regardless of weight, the size of those cells can vary greatly.
Long term results from treatments are volume reduction of the fatty tissues and toning of the body. The results are gradual over a number of weeks as your body clears the broken down fatty tissues. The results can be long lasting provided you follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. However, it is very easy to deposit fat again into the tissues if one over-eats, consumes too much alcohol, or doesn’t exercise. For those receiving treatments on the face who continue to smoke and consume alcohol, results will not be as effective and may require regular treatments. Ultimately results vary depending on the individual’s different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medication, and changes in hormones.
On average individuals will need between 8-12 treatments to achieve the desired results. (Those with a higher Body Mass Index may require more treatments) One can see significant results in as early as three to four treatments. The body takes about 72 hours to eliminate the fat from each session therefore we recommend an interval of one week between treatment sessions. Maintenance treatments are every 6-12 months.
It is recommended that one drink plenty of water after a treatment to replenish what is lost during treatment and aid in the flushing out of broken down fat cells and toxins through the body’s lymphatic and waste system. Mild side effects of this treatment include mild transient redness, excessive thirst, and slight nausea which can be resolved by drinking water. These side effects should go away within 24 hours.
Though these treatments are safe, contradictions can occur in some individuals. Such contradictions will depend on the individual’s medical history. Those with autoimmune disorders, electrical implants (heart devices, artificial heart valves, dental plates/bridges, metal implants, etc.), skin diseases or infections, uncontrolled hypertension, uncontrolled diabetes, pregnant, lactating, or menstruating women, those taking diet medications or fad diets, etc. are not ideal candidates for our treatments and may require physician approval before treatment.
