Body sculpting treatments are not for weight loss. It is important to give your client realistic and honest expectations from the very beginning.
Bulges, muffin tops, skin laxity, and cellulite are all targeted areas.
A healthy diet and water intake are ideal when receiving these treatments.
The client can expect better results when they walk or exercise.
Visceral fat (fat behind the muscle) will not respond.
