Schedule a Consultation
Love handles and belly fat can make a person feel older. It can also affect the way that clothes hang on their body. Although a person may exercise regularly, there are still some parts of their body that will retain fat. Fortunately, Skin Body Soul Spa has several ways to reduce body fat and change your shape. One of our Ankeny Fat Reduction specialists will consult with you and find the perfect fat reduction treatment for your body, your schedule, and your budget. Before you come in, you may want to learn about each of the treatments we offer.
Cynosure SculpSure works by using controlled laser lights. It is a non-surgical alternative to antiquated liposuction treatments. Liposuction requires long periods of downtime and poses potential health risks. Unlike any other laser fat reduction treatments on the market, the FDA has fully cleared SculpSure, and our Ankeny Fat Reduction Clinicians are ready to help you achieve your desired results.
During your fat reduction Ankeny Clinicians will use heat from a laser to increase the temperature of fat cells. This will eventually damage the cells to the point where your body will metabolize them. A trained clinician will mark the sections of your body that are to be treated. You will then be fitted with a customized plastic applicator frame. The clinician will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area, and you will lie inside the applicator frame for the duration of the treatment. The laser applicators will be attached to the frame. The fat reduction treatment will begin, and you will feel a cooling sensation followed by a blast of heat from the lasers. You will feel blasts of cool throughout the process to keep you comfortable. Most people only need 1 or 2 treatments, and it takes 6 to 12 weeks to see results. If you have a high body mass index, you may end up needing more treatments.
SculpSure has been shown to reduce belly fat by as much as 24%. Perhaps the best thing about the treatment is that you will not need follow-up procedures; the results are permanent. Your skin will look tighter, and the procedure can give your body an overall more youthful appearance.
Destroy Fat Cells
SculpSure can also be used for the treatment of a double chin. The applicator frame will resemble a helmet, and the laser applicators will attach to the bottom of the frame underneath your chin. You will wear goggles to protect your eyes. As with the treatment for body fat, you will have no downtime and can resume normal activities right away. You may have some minor swelling in the chin area that should go away very quickly..
As with any fat reduction procedure, you will get the best results if you are in good shape to begin with and eat a healthy diet. Sometimes nodules can form around the treatment area after the procedure. It is a good idea to massage the areas that have been treated a couple of times a day for about six weeks. You should also drink plenty of fluids.
Some people naturally have a double chin, and other people find that the shape of their face changes as they age and a double chin emerges over time. In some cases, a double chin may be the result of weight gain. A double chin can throw off the symmetry of your face and make you feel self-conscious. The Kybella treatment can eliminate that double chin.
Chin Fat Reduction
Gone are the days when you need expensive, time-consuming, and painful surgery to get rid of extra chin fat. The fat that causes a double chin is called submental fat. Although it can be caused by weight gain, it may also be the result of loose or aging skin. If you try exercises to eliminate the extra fat and they do not work, Kybella can help. Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced in our bodies and it helps your body break down fat from food in your intestines. Scientists have synthesized it for use in vaccines and even for cancer treatments. It is the active ingredient in Kybella.
What To Expect
When you have a Kybella injection, our fat reduction nurse will numb your double chin area and inject the medication into the fatty area with a tiny needle. They will need to make several injections. The treatment breaks down and destroys fat cells for good. The average treatment should only take about 20 minutes. Most people require 2 to 6 treatments that are one month apart.
You may have a bit of redness after your fat reduction treatment and there may be a bit of swelling. Pain should be nominal and you will not have to take any time away from your normal activities.

“My lashes have gotten thinner and more sparse. That’s why I asked my optometrist about LATISSE®, hoping that it would help my lashes grow.Now that my lashes are longer and darker, I’m doing more to draw attention to my eyes; I cut my hair shorter and I’m even wearing my contacts more just to show them off.” - CINDY
“Being a blonde, I’ve always had light brown lashes with some blonde ones mixed in, which, as you can imagine, just disappeared on my face. They didn’t even show up in photographs! But since I have been using LATISSE®, my lashes are noticeably darker than my previous shade, which is fantastic! Without a doubt, I have become a believer in LATISSE®!” - JENNY
