Adding Body Sculpting To Your Esthetician Practice

Updated: Jul 7, 2022

Frequently asked questions and how to work most efficiently

Building your esthetic practice is a process and there has been many new treatments developed which has become very popular that seem in they are in the same field. So you might be wondering, should I add these services myself? Is this legal under my license? How can I start training and how much does it cost?

Well one such procedure which includes many different treatment is called body sculpting. Body sculpting primarily refers to the removal of excess fat from the body using different non-invasive techniques. By doing so, it can help individuals reshape their bodies in the most difficult spots or smooth out skin after losing lots of weight among other aesthetic benefits.

In California Body Sculpting is not governed by the The Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. In the official release from February 2022 from Governor Gavin Newsoms office it states "The use of electrical stimulation in providing skin care services falls within the practice of an esthetician under certain conditions. So long as the machines providing the electrical stimulation do not deliver an electrical current that will visibly contract the muscle of the body or face and/or result in the destruction or removal of the skin below the client’s epidermis. The machine’s parameters must be set to stimulate the muscle not to contract the muscle."

The official release goes on to recommend some items to consider before purchasing skin care equipment...

• Is the machine registered with the FDA and compliant with FDA requirements?

• Make sure you know the machine’s intent of use, claims of the machine, and FDA classification (select FDA class 2 devices and all Class 3 devices are out of scope for our licensees).

• Does the machine have any safety certifications? Does it carry the UL, CSA or CE listed mark on the device and power cord?

• Is the manufacturer ISO 13485 certified?

• Does the manufacturer maintain liability insurance on the machine?

• Have you been provided with instructions on how to properly clean/disinfect the machine? • Are there any associated contraindications associated with the use of the machine?

This is one of the reasons why in our training classes we provide the opportunity to use different machines and see what fits your needs best instead of providing one full package in which you're stuck purchasing a machine that doesn't fit your needs.

So why would you want to add body sculpting to your esthetician practice? According to an article from Grandview Research company "the advent of the

COVID-19 pandemic has hugely affected the overall aesthetic market. But many aesthetic professionals believe that the pandemic might propel the growth of the

market for body contouring devices. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the pandemic led to an increase in the acceptance of cosmetic procedures. The association carried out a survey of more than 1,000 women stating that 11% of the women are now more inclined and interested in nonsurgical procedures than before the pandemic."

  2. Laser Lipo - Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to melt away fat under the skin. It's also called laser lipolysis. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that uses a cooling applicator to freeze away fat beneath the skin.

  3. Wood Therapy - In short, wood therapy uses a number of different wooden massage-like tools to help break down fat and cellulite. The wooden instruments are used to apply direct pressure to “problem areas” and essentially naturally eliminate excess body fat.

  4. Radio Frequency skin tightening - Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also called radio-frequency skin tightening, is a nonsurgical method of tightening your skin. The procedure involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of your skin known as your dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is the most common protein in your body.

  5. Vacuum Therapy - 2 types-Enhancement & Fat release|Cellulite. Vacuum therapy is a noninvasive massaging technique that helps to lift your skin via a mechanical device equipped with suction cups.
