What Is Body Sculpting?
Non-invasive body sculpting or body contouring is a cosmetic treatment that is used to improve the contours of the body through fat reduction, muscle toning, and skin tightening. Treatments are performed in the office, take an hour or less to complete, and come with minimal discomfort and downtime. With our body sculpting treatments, we can provide results for the abdomen, flanks, glutes, and more.
How Does Body Sculpting Work?
Radiofrequency Technology for Fat Reduction
Fat reduction is achieved through radiofrequency technology. These devices emit radiofrequency (RF) energy, which translates as heat energy deep within the skin. When the heat energy comes into contact with fat cells, it damages them and causes them to be broken down and eliminated by the body. This process happens gradually but can noticeably reduce the amount of fat you have in a particular area.
Electromagnetic Technology for Muscle Toning
Muscle toning is achieved through electromagnetic technology. Electromagnetic waves stimulate muscular contractions in the area where the device is placed. These contractions are more intense than normal contractions. While not painful, the intensity of the contractions allows for stronger and more efficient building of muscle in the area where the device is placed.
During any type of exercise, including body contouring treatments, small tears occur in the muscles. This is a normal reaction and part of how your body builds muscle. In response, the muscles begin to repair and regenerate and more muscle material is added. The muscle fibers are knit more tightly together and can increase in both size and strength over the course of several treatments. This process can begin to make your muscles more toned and defined.
Some Benefits of Body Sculpting Treatments
Non-surgical body sculpting offers an option for individuals who don’t want to pursue surgical solutions in order to contour specific areas of their bodies. During each body contouring treatment, you may feel the warmth from the radiofrequency energy and a tightening sensation as your muscles contract. While this sensation can feel unfamiliar and strange, it is typically not overly uncomfortable and can be adjusted to accommodate individual comfort levels.
Targeted Body Fat Reduction
Losing weight in specific areas can be difficult since weight loss is often dispersed. For individuals who just want to shed fat in target areas such as the abdomen or flanks, the targeted body fat reduction of body sculpting services can be ideal.
Some Skin Tightening Effects
If your non-surgical body sculpting treatment includes radiofrequency technology, you can also enjoy some skin-tightening effects. RF energy can contract the tissue in the area, leading to tighter and firmer skin. Over time, additional collagen and elastin may be produced in the area as a reaction to the radiofrequency energy, which can further improve the skin texture and lead to better body contouring results.
Body Sculpting FAQs
Will Body Sculpting Help Me Lose Weight?
Body sculpting should not be viewed as a weight loss service even though it does provide fat reduction. While the fat that is lost during the process can be significant in terms of the aesthetics of your body, it is not significant in terms of overall weight loss. You should think of this service as subtly reshaping your body. Patients of many different sizes and weights can benefit from muscle toning and targeted fat reduction.
When Can I See the Results?
How soon you see results can depend on what you are hoping to achieve and what platform is used to create the desired results. Your body will need time to break down and eliminate fat cells as well as repair and grow muscle tissue. In general, results from electric muscle stimulation and RF fat reduction can come 8-12 weeks after your last session.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For some people with mild concerns, one session may produce the desired results. However, for most people, at least four treatments are recommended. The number of treatment sessions you will have is completely customizable, and your treatment plan can be reassessed as needed.
What Are Treatments Like?
At our practice, appointments typically take up to an hour depending on the services that you and your doctor have chosen. Your experience will depend on whether you are focusing on fat reduction, muscle toning, or both. If both, your appointment will begin with the radiofrequency treatment. Small paddles will be placed on your skin where they will begin emitting heat. This portion of the treatment may feel like a hot stone massage and often lasts for around 15 minutes.
The rest of the hour will be dedicated to sculpting your muscles. The device paddles will be placed in an optimal position to produce the maximum stimulation of muscle contractions. They can be adjusted as needed to ensure an even treatment.
