Frequently Asked Questions

DOES IT REALLY WORK?

Try SlimWave once and you will know it works! You feel your muscles contracting and exercising during the session for measurable results.

HOW MANY INCHES WILL I LOSE?

After a 10 session, abdominal package, your weight remains constant; one can expect a loss that varies between 1/2” – 2” off the rib cage, off the abdomen, and off the waist area, factoring in diet and lifestyle.  Accordingly, one can lose up to 2 pant sizes in 20 sessions. 

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?

At no time, will you will feel pain. It is a non-invasive treatment that may feel relaxing to some. You will feel a tingling sensation at the beginning of the treatments, which is the same sensation one might feel during a muscle rehabilitation session with a physiotherapist, and then you will feel contraction of the targeted muscles. 

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I COME FOR A TREATMENT?

Per area, three times a week is ideal. Twice a week is a minimum to get results. 

HOW MANY AREAS CAN I TARGET IN A SINGLE SESSION?

A client may choose to do two areas during a visit. Depending on the client’s goal, the technician may suggest focusing on one area for the optimal results of the problem region.

HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS LAST?

When you activate your muscles with normal exercise you are usually only able to access about 50% to 60% of your muscle fibers, unless you are a trained athlete. With SlimWave, you exercise 100% of your muscle fibers in targeted area so the effects should typically last you considerably longer than active exercise. If your weight remains constant, the effects will last 6-8 months. If you integrate regular exercise and a healthy diet to your routine, the results can last indefinitely. 

IS THE SLIMWAVE ELECTRO MUSCLE STIMULATION (EMS) TREATMENT SAFE?

There are no negative side effects 

WILL MY MUSCLES ACHE AFTER THE TREATMENT AS THEY DO AFTER A STRENUOUS GYM WORKOUT?

The SlimWave treatment does not require glucose, which is normally utilized during exercise. This is an important benefit because the body burns surrounding fat cells without decreasing glucose levels. This prevents build-up of lactic acid, which normally causes the pain after an intense workout. 

SHOULD I DO ANYTHING AFTER I FINISH A SESSION?

To enhance the lymphatic drainage process, which is stimulated when the muscles contract and relax, you are encouraged to drink a glass of water before a session and drink several glasses after a session to assist your body with elimination of toxins.

I JUST HAD A BABY. CAN SLIMWAVE GET MY STOMACH BACK INTO SHAPE?

There is no faster or easier method of correcting the stretched tummy muscles after childbirth.  You can start treatments six weeks after childbirth or six months after a caesarean section.  

I AM OVER 50 AND HAVE VERY POOR MUSCLE TONE. CAN SLIMWAVE HELP?

Yes! Age is no barrier and where there is more room for improvement the results seem even more dramatic, when complemented by a sensible diet and regular exercise, you will see toning and quick and visible inch loss. In fact, we have had individuals over the age of 70 experiences the benefits of SlimWave treatments.

CAN SLIMWAVE HELP ME: GET INTO SHAPE / LOSE WEIGHT / CAN I AVOID THE GYM ALTOGETHER?

Get into shape: Men like to keep in shape as much as women. Men to pull in their stomachs and dramatically improve their physiques often use SlimWave. SlimWave sessions are an enjoyable injury-free alternative, or complement to traditional exercise and sport.

Lose weight: It’s well known that muscle consumes far more calories per day than fat. If you build more muscle, then your calorie consumption goes up and you obtain a proportionate weight loss, provided that your eating habits remain the same. If you go on a diet at the same time carrying out the SlimWave treatment program, you will lose weight. Add a regular exercise program (walking 30 minutes briskly each day) and the results will be even greater.

Giving up the gym: No, you won’t want to. SlimWave does not give you the cardio training that your body requires. Also, once you have stimulated your muscles with SlimWave, you will find your session at the gym more enjoyable!

Our unique technology targets the facial muscles rather than the skin.

 

WHAT SHOULD IT FEEL LIKE?

A light tapping or vibrating of key areas of the face, most notably around the eyes and the mouth. You may also experience a twitching type sensation around those areas, which shows that the muscles age working and being stimulated. The sensation is unusual at first but with gentle use, increasing the intensity over time, then the sensation comes quite comfortable with some finding it addictive!

Facial muscles are no different- they require a maintained program to keep them plump and healthy. Slimwave Facial gently tones and builds the foundation of the face, lifting sag and filling out lines and wrinkles.

 

WHAT OTHER BENEFITS WILL SLIMWAVE FACIAL DELIVER?

One of the most immediate and striking benefits is the significant improvement in skin complexion and general facial radiance; skin conditions appeared to clear up, complexions brightened and overall health of the skin improved.

WHY IS SLIMWAVE FACIAL DIFFERENT FROM ANTI-ANGING CREAMS?

WILL SLIMWAVE FACIAL WORK IF I'VE HAD BOTOX?

Botox reduces stubborn frown lines and brow furrows by chemically reducing muscle activity in the area between the eyes (the “glabella”) and just above this. Sometimes it is also used to reduce “crow’s feet” around the eyes but Botox is rarely used in the mid and lower part of the face and therefore does not impact the majority of facial muscles.

***SLIMWAVE RECOMMENDS DOING THIS TREATMENT 4-6 WEEKS AFTER INJECTIONS, BUT TO BE AWARE THIS COULD POTENTIALLY REDUCE THE EFFECTS OF THE BOTOX- DEPENDING WHERE IT HAS BEEN INJECTED***

 

CAN YOU OVERWORK YOUR MUSCLES AND GET FACE BULK?

No. Your facial muscles are very small and Slimwave Facial is designed to gentle stimulate them which would not allow for facial bulk. It works on the principles of isometric exercise that involves the static stimulation of a muscle without any lengthening, only developing thickness.

 

WOULDN'T INJECTABLE FILLERS WORK JUST AS WELL AND BE A LOT CHEAPER?
