How long is a treatment and how often should they
be repeated?

One session takes less than 1 hour. The treatments are done approximately once a week for each treatment area. A series of 3-6 treatments are usually recommended depending on the size of the treated area.

Where is QuantaShape performed?

QuantaShape is performed in our office by a trained technician and does not require anesthesia of any kind.

After Treatment


How soon will I
see my results?

While you may see results after the first treatment, patients typically see the most visible results after a regimen of three to six sessions. Multiple treatments may be required.

Is there a
recovery period?

No. Following the procedure, you can resume normal activity without pain or downtime.

Your skin may appear slightly pink and feel warm after the procedure due to the increased local blood circulation in the area. This should resolve itself within a few hours after the treatment.

Are there any
side-effects?

  1. SKIN: Your skin may be pink from thirty minutes to three hours following your procedure, in addition to having possible red blotches/spots, bruising or skin sensitivity. Similar symptoms to deep tissue massage may also be experienced and should dissipate within 48 to 72 hours.
  2. HYDRATION: It is recommended to keep your body well hydrated after the treatment to assist with lymphatic drainage.
  3. DIET: No special dietary changes are required for Quanta Shape. Maintain a healthy diet, perhaps lower in sodium and saturated fats, to avoid fluid retention and aid in lymphatic drainage.
  4. ELIMINATION: Increased urination may result with increased fluid intake and lymphatic massage. You may also experience temporary changes in your bowel movements.
  5. ACTIVITY: Normal activity may be resumed immediately following the treatment. Body movement promotes lymphatic drainage.

 

Maintain the Results
