Body Sculpt's go-to tool is the noninvasive BeautyTek device, a kind of hypermodern Swiss Army knife in the cosmetics world.

The facility also houses a BeautyTek Avita Plus device, which performs ultrasonic cavitation to evict stubborn fat deposits. The tech-savvy staff can also offer traditional med-spa solution, including Botox injections and other dermal fillers.
