Ultimate Guide: 4 Ways to Prepare for Your Non-Invasive Body Contouring Appointment at Saxon MD

Non-Invasive Body Contouring Preparing for your non-invasive body contouring appointment at Saxon MD involves several key steps to ensure you have a successful and comfortable experience. Whether you’re looking to tighten your skin, reduce cellulite, or contour your body without surgery, here’s a comprehensive guide to help you get ready.

1) Hydration

Hydration is crucial for any of our body contouring treatments. Drinking plenty of water helps your body respond better to the treatments and aids in flushing out toxins. Aim to consume around 64 ounces of water daily in the days leading up to your appointment. Hydrated skin can also improve the effectiveness of treatments like Emsculpt Neo and Exilis Ultra 360, which use radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energy to target fat and muscle tissues.

2) Dress Comfortably

On the day of your appointment, wear loose, comfortable clothing. Non-invasive body contouring sessions, such as those involving Emsculpt or Vanquish ME, may require you to lie still for an extended period. Comfortable attire can help you relax and ensure the procedure goes smoothly. Avoid wearing tight clothing that might interfere with the treatment or cause discomfort.

3) Avoid Heavy Meals

Avoid consuming a large meal before your appointment. If necessary, opt for a light snack. A full stomach might make you uncomfortable during the session, especially if you need to lie down for treatments that target the abdominal area.

4) Skin Preparation

Ensure the treatment area is clean and free of lotions, oils, or perfumes. If the area has significant hair, consider shaving it before your appointment to ensure better contact with the treatment devices. Clean skin allows for more effective application of treatments like Morpheus8 Body, which combines microneedling with radiofrequency to rejuvenate and tighten skin​.

We recommend wearing comfortable clothing to your consultation. A sports bra, yoga pants, and a t-shirt are great options, as they allow easy access to the areas that will be assessed and treated. During your initial body consultation at Saxon MD, the expert team, led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Sarah Saxon, will conduct an in-body analysis and discuss your specific goals. Based on this assessment, a personalized treatment plan will be created, potentially combining different technologies to address multiple body concerns simultaneously. For instance, Emsculpt can be paired with Emtone and Vanquish ME to maximize fat reduction, muscle building, and skin tightening. This comprehensive approach ensures that all aspects of your body contouring goals are effectively targeted.

Pre-Treatment Guidelines

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Limit sun exposure to the treatment areas for a few days before your appointment. Sunburned skin can be more sensitive and less receptive to treatment.
  • Shave the Treatment Area: If the area to be treated has significant hair, shave it before your appointment to ensure better contact with the devices.
  • Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine: Both substances can dehydrate you and potentially impact the results of your treatment. It’s best to avoid them for at least 24 hours before your session.

After your session

  • Staying Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to help your body flush out any toxins released during the treatment.
  • Avoiding Strenuous Activity: Give your body time to recover by avoiding heavy exercise for a day post-treatment. (The team at Saxon MD will let you know if more downtime is required).

After treatments like Morpheus8 Body, you may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising, which is normal and should subside within a few days. Protecting the treated areas from direct sun exposure and using a high SPF sunscreen to prevent skin damage is also advisable.

Results and Follow-Up

The results from non-invasive body contouring treatments can vary, with some patients noticing improvements after the first couple of sessions. However, optimal results usually happen after a series of treatments. The Saxon MD team is there for you every step of the way, and we’ll help you monitor your progress as you move through the series. If you’d like to explore our before and after gallery, click here.
