Our Slender Abdominal treatment combines 4 highly effective devices to treat the Abs and waistline. We start with Emsculpt NEO on the abdomen to build muscle, preheat fat and tighten the skin. We follow that with Exilis Ultra for additional fat reduction and skin tightening and then use Vanquish ME to permanently kill the fat cells. We finish with Zimmer Z-Wave to treat cellulite and extend the effectiveness of the other devices. For best results, we recommend a package of 4-8 treatments done at 1week intervals. There is no downtime or discomfort with proper hydration.
Results will be measured with Styku scans. Styku uses 3D body scanning technology to measure body data and composition. By digitally measuring circumferences like hip, thigh, waist and bust, you can see where you are gaining muscle how the body is changing with the treatments.
- EMSCULPT NEO® is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and sculpt their fat at the same time. The original EMSCULPT® created the world’s first non-invasive abdomen sculpting and buttock toning procedure. Now the new EMSCULPT NEO® can treat more areas and eliminate inches of circumferential fat permanently.
- Vanquish ME uses its large applicator and power to evenly distribute heat directly to the fat in the abdomen, love handles and legs. This is accomplished with a sensation of a heating pad without touching the skin. The Vanquish ME has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment option for permanent fat reduction without touching the patient’s skin. The system’s patented technology creates a high-frequency energy field that targets the fat layer while protecting surrounding skin and muscle tissue.
- BTL EXILIS ULTRA™ is the newest technology for skin tightening and fat reduction. BTL EXILIS ULTRA™ is the first non-invasive aesthetic device to simultaneously transmit radio frequency and ultrasound energy. By combining two highly effective energies, we can deliver superior results with no downtime or discomfort. This is the ideal solution for shaping, tightening and cellulite reduction.
Am I a candidate for Slender?
The Silhouette treatment is for patients who have areas of unwanted fat. Silhouette is not a weight reduction treatment for people who are obese, or is a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Talk to our Skin Appeal staff to see if the procedure is right for you. You will receive a complimentary consult prior to any treatment to assure you are the appropriate candidate.
How long does each treatment last and how many treatments will I need?
You will need 4-8 treatments per area. Each treatment lasts 1.5 hours.
What does it feel like?
You will be positioned comfortably lying down.
- Emsculpt NEO: The EMSCULPT NEO® procedure feels like an intensive workout. You can lay down and relax during the treatment. It doesn’t hurt but people describe it as a warm pulsing sensation and contraction. We can always adjust the intensity up or down for your comfort but it should always feel completely tolerable.
- Exilis Ultra: Ultrasound gel or baby oil will be placed. The Exilis Ultra hand piece will be glided over the treatment area for 8-20 minutes. You will feel heat from the tip as it glides.
- Vanquish ME: The device will be placed over the treatment area. As the treatment progresses you will feel a mild to moderate heat sensation. Many patients close their eyes and relax and listen to music.
- Z-Wave: The high energy radial shockwaves feel like a pulsation on the skin and is not painful.
Can I return to my normal routine after treatments?
Yes, you can return to your normal routine right after your treatment. While patients may experience mild redness and warmth after treatment these side effects last only minutes to hours and have no effect on your daily life.
How quickly will I see results?
You may start to see improvement within a few days after your first treatment. However, you will see the greatest results as early as 2 months after your final treatment. You may experience continued improvement as your body rids itself of fat cells, especially as you drink enough water every day during the treatment period.
Is diet and exercise required in order to see results?
No, the treatments are effective without diet or exercise. However, it is encouraged to live a healthier lifestyle. Many patients decide to start eating better and exercise once they’ve received the Slender treatments so that they can maintain their new physique. If you choose not to exercise, eat a balanced diet and maintain the fat loss, fat may return, but it may return in other areas.
How long do the results last?
As this is a targeted spot reduction treatment and not a weight loss system, patients should still maintain a healthy lifestyle. The fat reduction is permanent if the patient does not gain weight. Treatment does not affect your ability to gain weight. Healthy nutrition and sufficient exercise are always recommended.
What can I expect for results?
At the end of your treatment series you will see and feel a difference of decreased size in your treated area. Many patients are happier with the contour of their treated area. They report that their pants fit looser around the waste and their muffin top has been decreased or eliminated. It really depends on what area has been treated. This treatment is not for weight loss, but for body contouring.
How many times can I have the Slender procedure?
Slender treatments can be performed an unlimited number of times on a particular patient. After the recommended treatment period of 4 treatments over 4-6 weeks, there will be differences in how each patient will respond. But each patient will be smaller in the treated area each treatment. You may have the Slender treatment in the same area for another 4 treatments if more contouring is desired.
