Q:

I'm Asian and 100 pounds. I have stubborn fat around my inner thighs the just won't go away, despite all the running I do. Would I be a good candidate? How many treatments would suggest for someone like me?

Ashley C.  asked on  Sep 9, 2011

A:

Ashley, I can't say if you're a good candidate for this procedure or not based on limited information. You'd need a consultation and intake to reach that conclusion. Same goes for number of treatments. That said, if there's excess subcutaneous fat then this can be an ideal way to 'coax it out'.

Q:

Could you tell me what your training is to do this procedure? I see that you are not certified in plastic surgery. Thank you.

Joan D. P.  asked on  Sep 9, 2011

A:

Because we use a class 3b low level laser and this is a noninvasive and very safe procedure utilizing normal physiological processes in the body, it falls under the general scope of practice of M.D.'s, D.O.'s, and D.C.'s (in most states). There is also additional specialized training and certification regarding the specific use of this type of equipment.

Q:

Do both arms count as one treatment?

Joan D. P.  asked on  Sep 9, 2011

A:

Joan, A treatment is based on the amount of surface area that can be covered in roughly a 40 minute session. Typically, both arms can be covered in one treatment but one treatment may or may not be enough to reach your particular goals.

Q:

Hi, if I wanna treat my calves and thighs, how many treatments do I need? I mean does one treatment only cover one side on my calves and I need another treatment for the other calves and more treatments to cover the whole thigh? Thank you!

Minhui X.  asked on  Sep 9, 2011

A:

Minhui, This is a cumulative procedure which means the more you do, the more you'll tend to lose. They're too many variables to make a recommendation w/out an intake and consultation.

Q:

What is the size of the area cover by this treatment. I know Zeltiq only covers an area the size of a hand.

Barbara P.  asked on  Sep 8, 2011

A:

Barbara, I'm not really familiar w/zeltiq but this covers an area quite larger then that per treatment. This is also a cumulative procedure which means you can do multiple treatments per area and the more you do the more you tend to lose. That's why the call this a body sculpting procedure. You can target specific areas for inch loss and also repeat there for greater loss or move on to another area once you've met your goal. To many variables to give a specific are as it depends on the size and shape of the area. You will discuss all this in consult w/the doctor.

Q:

How does the fat remove from the body after the treatment liquifies it? If it’s not physically removed from the body like liposuction, will it goes to other parts of our body? Also, what kind of after care is needed such as wear compression garments?

htc  asked on  Sep 8, 2011

A:

HTC, It's a bit too scientific but I can get you the studies if you contact us directly through our website. In a nutshell, once the fat is out of the cell (liquified is not the best descriptor but it works), it's handled by the body via the normal physiological pathways. This is not the same as liposuction which is much more invasive (surgical, drugs, ect.) Some docs use compression garments as a support to the lymphatic system, we have several ways to support the lymph system and that can be discussed with the doctor directly in the consultation.
