Frequently Asked Questions

What appears to happen to the area after a beautytek procedure?

  1. The energy applied to the tissue acts as a stimulus for a variety of body functions;
  2. The bodies energy levels are increased
  3. It is thought that the water and toxins stored in the cells are redistributed to the lymphatic pathways, which are stimulated to “flush” the waste products from the body.
  4. It is thought that the water balance is readjusted and regulated.
  5. It is thought that fatty tissue is dehydrated.
  6. It is thought that fatty clusters are decomposed.
  7. Blood vessels are opened to increase blood flow (perfusion), oxygen levels in the
    blood and nutrients delivered to the skin.
  8. It is thought that the ion grid is re-established (ions are electrically charged particles responsible
    for a variety of chemical and electrical reactions in the body.)
  9. Active ingredients in the electrolyte gel are selectively absorbed into the tissue
    (this is called iontophoresis) as required.

How soon will I see results from a beautytek procedure?
While results can be seen after a single procedure, a series of twelve sessions will typically show dramatic results.
 
How long do the beautytek results last?
In terms of fat reduction, the effects are as permanent as any method of reducing fat, including surgery. Provided a sensible eating and exercise plan is followed. In terms of breast lifting, studies have shown the effects of a course of sessions without any maintenance can last anywhere from between three months to a year.
 
How many beautytek sessions will I need?
It is difficult to specify how many sessions a person will need, because the speed at which the body responds differs from person to person. However, we recommend that an initial course of 12 sessions is undertaken to optimize the result. Your experienced operator will assess your individual needs with a consultation.

How often do I need beautytek sessions?
For optimal results we recommend two sessions a week, with at least two whole days in between (e.g. sessions on a Monday may then be followed on a Thursday).

Can I have more than one area worked on at a time with beautytek?
Yes. Working on two adjacent areas at the same time can have significant benefits. It is, however, often the case that a procedure on one area will have positive benefits on other area. (Microcurrent Ripple Effect) (e.g. working on the breast, may produce an improvement in the waistline).

Do I need any beautytek maintenance sessions?
Once the desired result has been achieved, we recommend that you have maintenance sessions and they are undertaken every three to four months to ensure you maintain your results. Your operator will advise what is best for you.

What can I expect during a beautytek session?
You will attend an initial consultation, during which your esthetician will examine the area you wish to have targeted to determine the most effective application plan for you. Your esthetician will discuss with you what to expect during your first sessions and go through the procedures schedule.Before you have your first sessions, the operator will take a series of digital photographs of the area being targeted. You will then be asked to lie on a bed and given a conductor to hold. The esthetician will then wash the application area to remove any body creams that could affect the procedures. A specially formulated electrolyte gel will be applied to the targeted area and the beautytek machine will guide the esthetician through the procedures using images and instructions displayed on the monitor. The computer determines when each session step is completed and automatically moves to the next step.

The esthetician will take a second set of digital photographs after your first procedures and then after every sixth session. You will be able to see any changes throughout your course as the comparative photographs are displayed side by side on the Beautytek screen.

How long does a beautytek session last?
Typically, a procedures will last around 60 minutes. The face and leg sessions are longer.

Are there any side effects?
The most significant benefit of Beautytek is that it achieves dramatic results comparable with invasive surgery but without the associated risks and side effects. Beautytek applications are conducted on the skin so no uncomfortable recovery period is required and no side effects have been reported.
During and after procedures you may feel the urge to go to the toilet frequently. This is perfectly normal and indicates that the procedures is having a desired effect.

Will I feel any pain or discomfort?
No, the beautytek procedure is pleasant to undergo and completely painless. Some clients feel a slight tingling sensation at particular points in their sessions as the microcurrent passes through the wand. Clients undergoing facial sessions may experience a metallic taste in their mouth if they have any fillings.
A beautytek procedure will feel as though you have had a light massage and many clients have reported feelings of an increased sense of well-being and having more energy after their beautytek session.

Do I need to diet/exercise?
Beautytek is effective without the need for strict diets or exercise plans. However, we do recommend that clients increase their intake of fresh fruit and vegetables, reduce the level of saturated fats in their diet and try to get 30 minutes of exercise a day. We ask all our clients to drink at least two liters of water a day, to keep the body properly hydrated and help the client get the best result possible from their sessions.

Under what circumstances would I not be able to have the beautytek procedure?
There are a few medical and physical conditions where beautytek sessions will not be administered. Pregnant and breast feeding women, clients wearing a pacemaker, suffering from epilepsy or cancer will not be treated. Clients with large metal implants such as artificial hips cannot be targeted in the area of the prosthesis, but it does not negate sessions of other areas. If you are feeling unwell, the energy levels in your body will be low, so you may not get the most out of your session.

I have breast implants. Can I still have a beautytek procedure?
Yes. beautytek is very beneficial to clients who have breast implants that have lost their shape.
