Body contouring is a safe and effective way to look and feel better without going under the knife.

Does Body Contouring Really Work? 

Non-surgical body contouring is an effective and non-invasive procedure that can drastically change your appearance. Do you feel insecure or uncomfortable with the way your body is shaped? Do you have excessive fat that just won’t budge no matter how much you exercise? Body contouring might be your best option without having to go under the knife.

What is Body Contouring?

But what is body contouring? And would it be the best procedure for you and your needs? Below is a quick breakdown of the treatment, who it’s right for, and what to expect after you’ve had it done. Keep reading to decide if non-surgical body contouring right for you!

 

How is Body Contouring Done?

Body contouring is exactly what it sounds like—a simple way to shape your body. This has nothing to do with physical exercise. Non-surgical body contouring uses radio-frequency and vacuum therapy to reduce fat cells. Body contouring shifts fat cells into a shape that enhances your appearance.

Non-Surgical Body Contouring Procedures

Contouring treatments can be done on various areas on the body. Common areas that benefit from non-surgical body contouring are places that have excess fat bulges. For example, the area under the chin, along the stomach, on the back, up and down the hips. Body contouring can also target cellulite along the thighs. 

The most common body contouring procedures are:

Ultrasonic Cavitation

This body contouring method uses using ultrasonic radio waves to break apart fat cells

Vacuum Therapy

This body contouring procedure helps to tone the body, encourage lymphatic drainage, and reduce excess puffiness.

Radio Frequency

This body contouring procedure is used for tightening.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate for Body Contouring?

Non-surgical body contouring is ideal for anyone who struggles with excess fat that just doesn’t budge. However, these procedures are mostly effective for clients who have a normal body mass index. Therefore, anyone with loose skin after weight loss won’t experience the same benefits.

By booking a consultation with a professional, you’ll be able to determine if these treatments are right for you. You can make sure body contouring will give you the look you desire.

 

How long does it take for Body Contouring to work?

It is uncommon to see results right away. Focus on drinking as much water as possible to flush out fat cells. Be patient with the changes your body will experience. You might be a little more puffy or swollen than normal. The body will take some time to break down the fat cells you are trying to remove. You will most likely need to have a few follow up treatments to ensure you get the desired results. Above all, the most important maintenance is to live a healthy lifestyle.

What are the Potential Side Effects?

There aren’t any serious side effects to body contouring treatments. But there are a few that you should be prepared for before your appointment. For instance, the most common are redness, bruising, and even headaches. The side effects of body contouring can last from several hours to several days.

Body Contouring Maintenance

Another possible side effect is a few unappealing lumps or bumps. The fat you are trying to remove might not dissolve the way you expect it to. Not to worry, because these are easily removed in follow up appointments. The key is to be patient. Above all, make sure you stay on top of maintenance to keep your new body looking great for as long as possible.
