Reshaping your body no longer requires invasive procedures, extended recovery times, or anesthesia, thanks to revolutionary new body contouring treatments that are non-invasive and non-surgical.
Some of the areas of the body commonly treated with non-surgical body contouring include:
- Flanks and belly (love handles)
- Chin and neck
- Upper thighs
- Upper arms
- The back
Individuals who want a more toned, sculpted body without surgery often turn to one of these treatment options to achieve their ideal aesthetic look and shape.
What Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?
Body contouring is used to sculpt various areas of the body. It can eliminate excess fat, reshape areas of concern, and tighten or get rid of excess or sagging skin.
At Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center, we offer several non-surgical body contouring treatments. Some use laser technology, while others use heat, deoxycholic acid, or cooling technology. Other treatments use ultrasonic vibrations or radiofrequency waves to tighten and tone the skin.
When asking, “What is non-surgical body contouring?” it’s important to know that these treatments are not designed to be weight loss treatments. They are fat loss treatments for targeted areas of the body.
Some treatments work with precision targeting that allows smaller areas, such as those on the face, to be treated. Others are designed to deliver treatment over larger areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or backside.
Some of the most popular non-surgical body-sculpting treatments available include:
Which one may be right for you will depend on several different factors, including your aesthetic goals and needs, as well as your current health status.
Popular Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatments
Body sculpting treatments address specific areas that don’t respond to diet or exercise. They can also be used to reshape body areas after significant weight loss has left excess skin.
Zerona is a new treatment that is FDA-cleared to treat the waist, chest, back, neck, upper arms, thighs, hips, and love handles. It uses a low-level laser to slim and sculpt these areas.
This cold laser treatment passes energy through tissues in the body to target and damage fat cells, causing them to release the fat they hold. This fat is then processed and eliminated by the lymphatic system.
VelaShape is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that is FDA-approved for cellulite reduction. VelaShape combines bi-polar radiofrequency energy, infrared light, and vacuum technology to create deep controlled heating of fat cells in the targeted area.
This process damages the membranes of the cells, causing them to release the fat within them and shrink, thereby causing the treated body area to shrink as well.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatment that is FDA-approved to reduce fat. It uses cooling technology that targets muffin tops, the inner and outer thighs, love handles, and other areas of the body that are notorious for harboring stubborn fat.
Handheld applicators deliver controlled cooling to targeted body sites. This controlled cooling freezes fat cells without harming the skin or other tissues that surround the fat cells. CoolSculpting causes the treated fat cells to die and eventually be processed naturally by the body.
truSculpt 3D body contouring is an effective treatment that delivers deep heat to the fat beneath the skin, breaking it down and tightening the area. Treatment is delivered using a small handheld device that emits pulses of radiofrequency waves.
Almost anyone makes an excellent candidate for this treatment, regardless of skin type. It can also often be used in combination with many other treatments.
Z-Wave is a non-invasive and non-surgical body contouring treatment that stimulates the body’s natural processes to reduce the appearance of cellulite. This therapy is administered via a simple device that emits acoustic radial waves to provide several benefits, including:
- Improved and increased long-term blood flow
- The formation of new, healthy blood vessels
- Stimulation of the lymphatic system for better cellulite control
- Softening of the internal structures that contribute to cellulite
- Rejuvenated and regenerated cells
- Strengthened connective skin tissue
- Improved skin elasticity and tightness
The positive radial waves in Z-Wave squeeze tissues, break apart their molecular grids, and destabilize the fat structures. This leads to long-lasting smoothing of the appearance of cellulite.
Emsculpt by BTL is the world’s first body sculpting and muscle-building treatment device. This treatment contours the body by causing the muscles in treated areas to contract in ways that the human body alone cannot accomplish. One Emsculpt treatment is the equivalent of doing 20,000 squats or crunches.
The muscle contractions simulate an extreme and intense workout, helping to tone and shape the muscles. Emsculpt doesn’t require any anesthesia, needles or injections, downtime, or special preparation. It’s FDA-cleared and has seven independent clinical studies to back up its effectiveness.
