Safe, Quick and Affordable
If love handles, a paunchy stomach, or a double chin are hurting your self-confidence, you may have considered plastic surgery. Unfortunately, plastic surgery can be expensive, and it requires a certain amount of downtime. Skin Body Soul Spa has the perfect solution for busy folks who desire a sleek figure. Our West Des Moines fat reduction treatments are safe, quick, affordable, and offer amazing results. We are staffed with a team of nurses and licensed estheticians who are dedicated to giving you the very best spa experience possible. Before you call us for a consultation, it can be helpful to know a bit about the procedures we offer.
When you visit our med spa in West Des Moines fat reduction specialists will mark the areas of your body that are to be treated. The treatment is done with lasers that are attached to a frame. You will be fitted with a frame that is the perfect size for you. The clinician will apply a numbing solution to your body. You will lie down on a table, and the frame will be placed over you. The laser applicators will be attached to the frame, and the process will begin. You will feel a cooling sensation followed by blasts of heat from the lasers. Although the process does not really hurt, you may feel some discomfort because of the heat from the lasers. Hence, there are blasts of cool air emitted during the treatment to keep you as cool as possible. The clinician will remain accessible to you the entire time, and you can ask any questions that you may have and let them know if you are experiencing excessive discomfort. The session should take about 25 minutes.
When the treatment is over, you can go right back to work, go home, or even go to the gym. You may feel some cramping in the region of your abdomen. It may feel as though you have done a lot of sit-ups. It is a good idea to massage the treatment area for 15 minutes a day for several weeks after treatment.
Chin Fat Reduction
A double chin is referred to as submental fat. It can be the result of being overweight or it can emerge from the loose skin that comes with old age. Even if you lose weight, you may not be able to lose that extra chin. SculpSure can be used on this area of the chin as well. It usually takes about two 25-minute sessions. In the case of a chin fat reduction West Des Moines patients will be fitted with a helmet that will hold the laser applicators in place. You will also wear goggles to protect your eyes. The lasers will go to work to destroy the fat cells in the submental area. It will take 6 to 12 weeks to see the results.
Destroy Fat Cells
If you have a double chin and you think that laser treatments are not for you, we also offer Kybella. Kybella is a prescription medication that is used for the elimination of the double chin. It is injected directly into the submental skin by a nurse. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring bile that breaks down fat in your intestines. The treatment will destroy the fat cells and eliminate that extra chin forever.
Before you get your Kybella injection, the nurse will numb your face with a lotion or a shot. You will then receive several small injections to your chin that are administered with a tiny needle. It should take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes.
Look and Feel Great
There is no downtime after fat reduction treatment and you can resume all normal activities right away. There may be a bit of redness and swelling for a very short period of time. You can have one treatment a month, and most people see results after 2 to 4 treatments. You work hard, and you deserve to look and feel great. Fat reduction can give you an improved appearance and a more self-assured attitude. Give us a call today.
Although you may eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, it is not uncommon for love handles and a paunchy belly to emerge as you get older. If you are losing weight, the fat cells around your waist, hips, and thighs are likely to be the last to go, if they go at all. This is because your body stores fat, and for most people, the storage area is around their middle or on their thighs and buttock. SculpSure fat reduction uses laser technology to get rid of fat cells that just won’t go away. The lasers create heat, and when the temperature gets between 42 and 47 degrees celsius, it disrupts the structure of the fat cells. Over time, the fat cells will become destroyed as your body will absorb the damaged cell. It normally takes about 12 weeks for you to notice results. Most people will need two or more treatment sessions before they see results.

“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
