Your non-invasive alternative to liposuction.

This technique is perfect for people who have difficulty eliminating problem areas through normal diet and exercise and will help you burn fat, reduce cellulite and boost your metabolism all without invasive surgery or side effects.

LipoMelt uses red light therapy to safely melt away fat and cellulite from your waistline, legs, buttocks, love handles, arms and any difficult bra line areas. Red light therapy has been studied by NASA for therapy use as well as body contouring.

MS Electronic Muscle Stimulation Training
Equivalent to three hours worth of exercise in only 20 minutes.

EMS training is scientifically proven to be 18 times more effective than a standard gym workout. Whether you’re an elite athlete in training or a senior who wants to rebuild lost muscle mass due to aging, this technique will help you improve your performance and mobility, also improving circulation and metabolism.

In just 20 minutes twice a week, you’ll see a marked improvement in your muscle mass and overall strength within 30 days. For men, EMS training can help increase testosterone levels while building muscles, and for women, it can balance hormones and estrogen levels which will help to tighten and tone all your major muscle groups.

EWOT Exercise With Oxygen Therapy
Allows you to increase oxygen to all the cells of the body.

EWOT is a method of training to increase oxygen to all the cells of the body by breathing in higher levels of oxygen during exercise. EWOT provides an immediate increase in strength, endurance and energy by increasing levels of oxygen in the blood, plasma and tissues by triggering an anti-inflammatory response within two minutes. The effects are cumulative and increase metabolic energy.

Improvements are noticeable within seven to 10 days. Benefits of EWOT therapy include faster recovery from stress-related illnesses, increased metabolism for weight loss and much more. Increased oxygen levels last for approximately three days, while anti-inflammatory effects can last for several months.

Austin Sculpt and Tone offers safe and efficient solutions to losing weight by heating up your fat cells before stimulating your muscles to achieve a more efficient workout. If you’re in search of a safe, noninvasive alternative for weight loss, look no further than Austin Sculpt and Tone.
