Managing Client Expectations
Assess the client’s area of concern and determine the reason for treatment, e.g. skin tightening, cellulite reduction, fat reduction, or body contouring. Or which combination of these they would like focus on so you can adjust treatment parameters accordingly. Discuss with the client the reason for having treatment, e.g. general self-confidence, a special occasion or a holiday.

Managing expectation of results:
1. Fat loss- instant inch loss should occur on clients with excess fat to be treated. However certain areas take longer than others for this to be visible, for example the arms.
2. Cellulite- Cellulite should look smoother instantly as the collagen fibres has contracted and fat cells have been reduced. However, cellulite will not be completely eliminated with a course of treatments, it will be improved. Improvement Is relevant to the grade of cellulite being treated.
3. Skin tightening- skin should look tighter and lifted instantly as collagen fibres contract. This is dependent on the amount of excess skin present, the more skin there is the longer it will take to see this result.
