CLOTHING: Please wear comfortable clothing on the day of your treatment so we can access the treatment area. You cannot have any metal on your body during treatment. Wear pants without zippers. Yoga pants, sweatpants etc. are perfect. Please leave all jewelry including watches, earrings & body piercings at home. If you wear metal frame eyeglasses, you will be asked to remove them during treatment. Make sure to remove any clothing items containing metal, such as an underwire bra.
HYDRATION: Begin therapeutic hydration 2 days prior to your treatment. Therapeutic hydration consists of drinking 8 glasses of water throughout the day. If you are working out and/or perspire excessively you may want to increase your water intake accordingly. You will need to continue to hydrate the day of and the day after treatment as this will assist with lymphatic drainage.
POST TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
IF YOU EXPERIENCE PAIN, BLISTERING, OR EXCESSIVE TISSUE TENDERNESS IN THE TREATMENT AREA, PLEASE CALL The Aesthetic Center @ 302-827-2125.
SKIN: You may experience mild to moderate erythema (redness) that will last from a few minutes to an hour or possibly longer. Your skin may feel warm for up to a few hours after treatment as deep tissue retains heat longer. You may also feel tenderness in the treated area. Some patients experience swelling of the fatty tissue and develop a tender lump under the skin. This is a common side effect and will resolve over time on its own. Please call the office and we can discuss how to manage this side effect.
HYDRATION: Continue with therapeutic hydration the day of and day after treatment as this will assist the fat to be cleared by the lymphatic system.
DIET: While no special diet is required, we do encourage healthy eating to help promote and maintain results. The Mediterranean diet is a healthy example - Lean protein such as Chicken, Turkey and Fish, vegetables & fresh fruits, whole grains and low in processed carbs & sweets. The treatment is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Also, it’s a good idea to avoid alcohol as much as possible during the treatment series. Alcohol dehydrates the body and activates fat cells.
ACTIVITY: You may resume your normal daily routine immediately following treatment. Light physical activity is encouraged to help promote lymphatic drainage. Also, 5-10 minutes of manual massage of the treatment area twice a day during your series is recommended to assist the fat cell clearance.
TREATMENT PLAN: It is important to follow the treatment plan that has been established for you to achieve optimal results.
