FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ'S GENERAL

What are the Sculpting Wands?

The Sculpting Wands are a revolutionary product in advanced skin care. It is the first all-in-one product and device that solves a universal skin aging problem we can all relate to. We have formulated different sculpting wands for both the neck and for the face.

It is the best option for non invasive, safe and effective sculpting of the areas of the neck and face.

It is a serum within a special wand applicator, similar to a roller-ball. The wand is airless and has an antimicrobial tip to maintain the purity of the ingredients during use.

How does the Sculpting Wand work?

The Sculpting Wand utilizes encapsulated time-released concentrated serum that, through the unique macro-sphere delivery system, targets the problem areas and remains on the upper dermis to maintain and deliver results immediately and over time. The wand makes use of a stainless steel rollerball to apply the serum and massge it into the skin using firm pressure.

What is the difference between the Face and Neck Wands?

The two wands are formulated using different ingredients to target different types of skin. The Instant Facial serum is specifically designed to not irritate the delicate skin around the eyes and the lips. There are also relaxants in the Instant Facial Wand that are opposite of what you would want to use on your neck, chin or jawline. The Neck wand formula helps to provide tightening and lifting for the necklace lines, the jowls, the chin and the decolette.

Can I use a moisturizer with the wands

We always recommend using the wand first on clean dry skin. It will dry within a couple of minutes and then you are fine to continue with your normal skin-care routine including using a moisturizer.

How long do the effects last?

The serums tighten and firm for several hours and with continued use you will see cumulative benefits to the skin. It hydrates and provides ingredients to promote building collagen and smoothes the skin over time. We recommend morning and bedtime applications.

Is the product safe?

The SBLA Sculpting Wands are an advanced scientific formulation which uses only the highest quality FDA approved ingredients which have been rigorously safety tested.

The face and neck are sensitive areas and as such, individuals are likely to experience anything from a mild tingling sensation to a warm feeling. This is normal and will subside quickly.

Skin will begin to desensitize and the initial tingling and warmth will cease after the first few days of use. If the sensation becomes uncomfortable remove with lukewarm water, let the skin rest and try a small amount of product.

Is the product safe for women breastfeeding or pregnant?

Our products are safe but we always recommend consulting with your healthcare provider before starting use if you have any concerns.

Can I apply the Wands on other parts of my body?

Our products are formulated and tested to be used on the specific areas they are intended for, therefore we do not recommend using the wands on other parts of the body.

FAQ'S - ORIGINAL NECK, CHIN & JAWLINE SCULPTING WAND

What is the Neck, Chin and Jawline Sculpting Wand?

The Neck, Chin and Jawline Sculpting Wand contains a serum with active ingredients to firm, tighten and lift the areas of the neck, chin and jawline. Each application delivers a measured dose (104 doses per wand) and allows you to target the problem areas.

Can I use the Neck wand on my face?

We do not recommend using the Neck, Chin and Jawline Sculpting Wand for the face as it is a more aggressive formula and may irritate the thinner skin of the eyes, forehead and around the lips.

But they both use the same unique macro-sphere delivery system and employ the same peptides as found in healthy skin to achieve the best results.

Why don’t I feel any tingling or heat sensation when applying?

Everyone experiences the serum differently. Depending on other skincare products you have used, your skin could be desensitized to feeling certain ingredients, it also depends on one’s skin sensitivities. If you do not feel any sort of tingling or heat, that does not mean that the product isn’t working as the ingredients and macro-spheres are still being absorbed into the skin and going to work.

Why isn’t serum dispensing from my Sculpting Wand?

Please sit your Sculpting Wand tip end down for a few minutes, then press firmly but slowly a number of times to get the serum flowing again. Tapping it may also help. Best practice is to store your Sculpting Wands tip side down.

If the product is gluten free, why does it include hydrolyzed wheat protein?

All our ingredients are laboratory tested to ensure they meet strict FDA standards and we have certification as Gluten Free.

The FDA currently defines any item having less than 20 ppm of gluten as Gluten Free.

Can I refill the neck sculpting wand?

The Sculpting Wand device is manufactured as as single unit and for health and safety reasons it is not refillable.

Can I wear makeup or any other creams after applying?

We recommend you use the product on fresh cleansed, dry skin. Wait 5-10 min for product to fully absorb, and then you can apply any additional skincare, makeup, and sunscreen.

What are the ingredients in the Sculpting Wand?

The Sculpting Wands are Fragrance Free, Paraben Free, Gluten Free and 100% Vegan. See each product's page on our website for a detailed listing of the ingredients.

FAQ'S - NECK, CHIN & JAWLINE SCULPTING WAND XL

What is the new Neck XL Sculpting Wand?

The XL Wand is our revolutionary new fat melting formula for targeting fat under the chin, building collagen and regenerating new healthy skin cells

How is it different from the Original Neck Wand?

The new Neck wand XL contains our new proprietary Fat Melting Complex in addition to the skin tightening and wrinkle fighting ingredients of our original formula.

How does the XL Wand work?

The fat melting formula mimics a high metabolic physiological response that causes fat to melt, comparable to the way exercise burns fat. Our topical serum was formulated specifically to gently target the fat cells that are known to accumulate under the chin, jaw and neck area.

Are the results permanent?

Once your fat cells are melted, they are gone for good, but your body can create new fat cells to replace them depending on your lifestyle and diet. Continue to use the wand as long as you have fat cells that you wish melt.

Do I need to use both the Original and XL Wands?

We recommend using the XL at night to get the fat burning benefits and the regular formula during the day to maximize your results around the clock.

Where can I use the XL Wand?

The serum is formulated and tested for use on the neck and jawline area only. We do not recommend using it in other areas of the face or body.

How long does it take to see results?

During Clinical testing some participants saw visible results overnight and more dramatic results were noticeable in to 2-4 weeks.

FAQ'S - FACIAL INSTANT SCULPTING WAND

What is the Instant Facial Sculpting Wand?

The Instant Facial Sculpting Wand serum contains active ingredients to firm, tighten and smooth the areas of the face including the eyes, forehead, lip, nasolabial folds, and the cheeks. It holds approximately 100 doses. We recommend using it both morning and evening.

Should I be using the Instant Facial Sculpting Wand all over my face?

No, unlike the Neck, Chin and Jawline Sculpting Wand (which is used all over neck/chin/jaw area), you are best to use the Instant Facial Wand on certain areas you would like to treat. The product will run out very fast if you used it as a full face serum. It is highly concentrated, and you do not need much per area.

Why do beauty products not work on everyone?

A big part of how beauty products work for on each individual person is body chemistry. Each person’s body chemistry is different and therefore the same results are not experienced by everyone.

There are about 20% of people whose body chemistry just does not match with a product ingredients and they do not achieve optimum results.  

We appreciate you giving our products a try and we want your experience with SBLA to be a pleasant one. Please contact our customer service department to discuss any issues that you are experiencing.  

How long should I use a product to see results?

It can be hard to know exactly when results will appear. Generally speaking, it takes about 28 days for skin cells to turn over, which means that almost all products require at least one month of use before you'll see the desired results. However, at SBLA, our formula’s are crated with advance technology that will deliver results sooner than most products.

Why have I not received a response to my email inquiry?

Our customer service reps endeavour to answer all inquiries within 24 hours but sometimes due to volumes, weekends, or staffing issues it may take a little longer.
