What number and frequency of sessions are ideal?
For individuals with low to moderate symptoms, 5-10 sessions are typically needed to restore the lymphatic system to normal function. In moderate to severe cases, 12-18 sessions are required to restore the system.
It is ideal to do 3 sessions a week for 4 weeks. Sometimes detox symptoms such as headaches, fatigue and body pain may appear in which cases an extra day or two break can be taken between sessions.
How do I maintain my results?
It is important to maintain a cleansed state. Sweating is one of the body’s natural mechanisms of excreting toxins. It is recommended to do cardiovascular exercise that will promote lymphatic flow as well as to metabolise fat.
Avoid poor food and drink choices, such as foods containing high levels of sodium and sugars. Individuals with high stress levels have high levels of cortisol in their systems that convert carbohydrates into sugar. It is recommended to avoid bread completely and non-vegetable carbs after midday.
The cleansed state can also be promoted by doing 1-2 SleekSculpt treatments per month in conjunction with SleekSculpt homecare products.
If a cleansed state is not maintained a new course of treatments would be needed in 8-12 month.
When will I see results
After each session there are normally a slight improvement, the difference after each session may not be visible to the eye and for this reason we take measurements to show centimetre loss.
Visible cellulite reduction is normally seen after a course of treatments. With the greater blood supply, improvements are seen every month going forward as the skin recovers from its malnourished state. Individuals, especially with stage 2 and 3 cellulite, normally show most remarkable improvements as early as 2-3 months after
completion of the course (given a cleansed lymph system is maintained).
I do not want to lose weight, will the treatment be right for me?
The treatment’s fundamental aim is to clean and detoxify the lymphatic system and strengthen micro-circulation. Achieving this offers many other benefits such as removal of water retention and improving of skin health. It is therefore not a classic slimming treatment but offers slimming benefits to people carrying excessive fluid.
People that are underweight or normal weight still benefit from detoxification, improved skin condition, reduced cellulite and water retention.
How do I use the home care products?
The products can be applied to most areas of the body, avoid sensitive areas as well as neck and face.
- Apply the Peel by hand on targeted areas. Then use Gauze dipped in the products and rub the skin surface.
- Within 1-2 minutes, apply the Slimming Gel by hand to the same areas.
- Within 1-2 minutes, apply the moisturizer to the same areas.
Total treatment time 5-10 minutes
When and how often do I use the home care products?
The home care range has the same percentage active ingredients as the professional products. It can be used on the off days and/or outside the SleekSculpt course cycle.
It can be used either in the morning or evening before going to bed. In some cases especially during hot summer evenings, the body may sweat which activates some of the ingredients causing the skin to warm up. If it disturbs sleep, it’s recommended to apply the products in the morning instead.
Some individuals that are very sensitive to the ingredients may experience hyper stimulation symptoms such as headaches and hot flushes and should increase resting periods from the Peel and the Slimming Gel.
