You’ll lie down, and a grounding pad will be placed on your back (or the area of the body opposite the one you’re targeting) to help the device direct its energy. Then, your provider will massage the handpiece (it comes in two sizes: large and small) over the treatment area.
The device heats to a set temperature (typically between 105ºF and 109ºF) and then automatically cools, allowing your doctor to treat both deep and superficial layers while ensuring the surface of your skin doesn’t burn.
Each treatment lasts about 15–30 minutes and delivers varying depths of heat, to tighten skin and reduce fat. It’s relatively pain-free (no anesthesia needed), but your skin may feel hot or look red during the procedure.
