At L. Marcel Body Studio we use a variety of the latest technology in body sculpting to reduce stubborn fat areas, along with the visibility of stretch marks, actively regenerating collagen in the skin for a firm tighter more youthful look.

Our Body Sculpting treatments are perfect ALL, including mommies, and men looking to firm their mid-section.

L Marcel Body Sculpting uses the most effective, non-surgical, procedures that are clinically proven to target and reduce problem areas on the body with no downtime. Even stubborn areas, such as cellulite, that are resistant to diet and exercise don’t stand a chance against this breakthrough radio frequency (RF) technology and laser treatments our facility utilizes to help you reach your body goals.

How Does Laser Lipo & Cavitation Work?

Our services, including Velashape uses a (RF) energy-based procedure that delivers controlled, yet comfortable, doses of therapeutic heat to a chosen target zone. Radio frequency (RF) is a type of energy, delivered by heat, that passes through even the natural resistance of fatty tissue.

 

In doing so, it deliberately causes a small amount of damage to the fat cells where the various applicators are applied. The body then detoxes “cleans out” and removes the injured contents of the fat cells by a mechanism called apoptosis.

 

The best way to explain apoptosis is to realize that the body naturally cleanses our body all the time. There is significant turnover of cells in our liver, skin and bowels.

 

We don’t grow new fat cells (unlike the liver or skin) after puberty so once the injured fat calls are removed by apoptosis they are gone for good.  

L MARCEL BODY CAVITATION 

Not all cavitation is the same. 

 

What do these numbers actually mean? Don’t feel bad because you are not alone. These numbers refer to how strongly the machine operates by cycles per second. But the higher number does not mean better. Many people think that an 80k machine is somehow better, but the numbers are not really for competing services. Some people’s bodies will respond better to the 40k than the 80k.

 

Others prefer the 80k as the sound waves are not as loud in the inner ear. Both methods produce enough of an ultrasonic effect that your fat cells will break open while not harming your skin or anything else.

Does L Marcel Body use different types of cavitation?

 

We can perform cavitation at 40 kHz or 80 kHz. L Marcel Body owns and operates the two cavitation handles for both 40k and 80k.

 

This is beneficial because some clients will prefer the 80k over the 40k due to the sound levels. Having both modalities with separate handles allows you to switch methods depending on the client’s needs. Other machines are often only one type and this can limit your client base if someone doesn’t like the inner sound of 40k over 80k.

Why do cavitation systems sound different?


The main reason they sound different in the inner ear is because one is working twice as fast as the other. 40k cavitation operates in forty thousand cycles per second, meaning that the sound waves are treating your fat cells at that rhythm.

 

80k is double that, meaning you are receiving twice the amount of ultrasonic sound waves. But everyone’s fat is different, and some fat cells might burst at 40k and not burst at 80k.

 

It all depends on your body composition.

 

L Marcel Body tailors each treatment to meet the needs of each patient and achieve the highest result.

 

Our estheticians and/or Specialists can help you discover what combination of methods produces the best results for your body type.
