What Is Body Sculpting?
What is body sculpting exactly? Also referred to as body contouring or non-invasive fat reduction, body sculpting is an aesthetic procedure that reshapes and refines bodily contours. Individuals searching for a more aesthetic physique without surgery who have exhausted non-medical approaches to health and wellness can benefit from the advanced technology employed in body sculpting.
We use one or more techniques to target and destroy certain fat cells or tone muscles beneath the skin. Whether the technology freezes fat cells under the skin or stimulates muscles to perform hours of exercise in mere minutes, each has a similar goal: a more toned body with fewer fat deposits that resist diet and exercise.
Benefits of Body Fat Reduction
Body contouring treatments have many benefits, making them popular options for a range of patients.
As the name implies, body sculpting sculpts the body. It eliminates localized fat deposits that can affect your appearance, creating a body more aligned with your goals.
Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Technique
Body sculpting does not require invasive surgery. The body sculpting device works on the surface of the skin, which allows for accelerated recovery.
Precision and Versatility
Our body fat reduction procedures can target specific problem areas with incredible precision:
- Abdomen and flanks
- Back fat
- Double chin and neck
- Upper arms
- “Banana rolls”
We can provide one or more treatments to specified target areas and help our patients form a customized treatment plan that meets their needs.
Body fat reduction, which is not a weight loss technique, reduces the odds of fat re-accumulation in the areas we target. As a result, even slips in a healthy lifestyle allow patients to maintain their more sculpted physique.
The Scientific Foundations of Body Sculpting
Non-surgical body sculpting combines a certain artistry with advanced scientific methods. We offer three treatments courtesy of modern technology, allowing us to choose the options that best meet our patients’ needs.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis (also known as fat freezing) to kill fat cells right away. When we apply cold temperatures to fat cells in the chosen areas, the fat cells are destroyed, and the body reabsorbs them, leaving increased tone behind.
Patients who undergo this treatment experience little to no downtime and can reduce fat in problem areas with just a few treatments. This popular choice for body sculpting enthusiasts makes it one of our more popular options.
An overabundance of fat cells can create problem areas, but so can a deficiency in muscle tone. CoolTone targets specific muscle groups and causes them to contract with a technology called Magnetic Muscle Stimulation, or MMS.
The machinery sends magnetic waves deep into the muscle layers, which cause rapid involuntary contractions. Muscle conducts magnetic fields far better than skin or fat, which makes it a safe and effective alternative to exercise.
In a few minutes, CoolTone allows the muscle to undergo the equivalent number of contractions as months of training would accomplish. Exercised muscles adopt a firmer and tighter appearance and gain more tone in the target areas. This technique can be used on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. The FDA has not yet cleared it for other parts of the body.
CoolTone stimulates the muscles, while CoolSculpting focuses on fat. Endermologie has an impact on the body’s outermost layer — the skin. This massage combines rollers and suction to stimulate cells through purely mechanical means. For patients concerned about magnetic or temperature effects, Endermologie is a good option for cellulite treatment.
Cellulite often comes from an imbalance of water or toxins that creates dimples in the skin, often around the thighs and hips. Our treatments help the fat cells just beneath the skin discharge their contents.
The same stimulation can improve blood flow and skin texture in the short term and promotes healing and collagen growth over time. Collagen keeps your skin supple and smooth, but your body’s production of it decreases as you age. By stimulating collagen production, Endermologie helps maintain skin health and elasticity.
Non-Invasive Body Sculpting vs. Liposuction
Body sculpting and liposuction allow patients to reduce unwanted fat and enhance their body shapes. However, body contouring treatments distinguish themselves from liposuction in several key ways. These features have made body sculpting a popular alternative to the long-standing fat-reduction procedure.
Non-surgical body sculpting procedures target fat deposits without breaking the skin. They don’t require any incisions, anesthesia, or surgery, and they involve minimal downtime and recovery.
Compare them to liposuction, which requires subdermal insertion of a tube called a cannula, which requires incisions and either localized or general anesthesia. It is effective for large-volume fat removal but has a longer recovery time and may result in scarring.
Liposuction uses simple mechanical techniques to suck fat cells out of the body. CoolSculpting and CoolTone use revolutionary inventions in temperature control and magnetic stimulation to attack and activate specific cell types without damaging those around them. Endermologie also uses a purely mechanical approach with a highly specialized purpose and remains on the surface of the skin.
