Groupon finds out about the body contouring treatments performed at The Rodney Street Clinic.
G: What is a Shrinking Violet body contouring wrap?
The treatment features a heat-inducing wrap. An oil is first massaged into the skin before the wrap is applied while clients lie on a couch with an electric blanket.
G: How should people prepare?
Clients must avoid alcohol for three days leading up to the session, and be sure to drink plenty of water. Only a light meal should be eaten on the evening before.
G: What about aftercare?
Exercise should be avoided for the next 12 hours, along with tea, coffee, alcohol and fizzy drinks. Instead, clients must drink lots of water. In addition, they should not bath or shower the following day.
G: What is laser lipolysis?
This treatment aims to help shape body curves using specially designed laser technology. A paddle is placed on a specific area of the body such as the stomach, lower arms or thighs.
G: And aftercare?
For best results, clients must perform cardiovascular exercise after each session; for example, go for a light jog or use vibration plates. It is also important to combine the laser treatment with a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
