If you have pockets of fat that a healthy diet and diligent exercise can’t resolve, there are non-surgical treatment options available to help you achieve the look you want.
Non-surgical body contouring treatments use heat, cold, radial waves, and electromagnetic energy to help reduce stubborn fat pockets, sculpt muscles, and even help with cellulite dimpling.
At Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center, we offer a variety of non-surgical and non-invasive treatment options. Keep reading to learn more about the non-surgical body contouring treatments we provide.
What Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring, also called non-surgical fat reduction, refers to numerous treatment options that can reduce and reshape pockets of stubborn fat. It can shape areas of the body while also tightening the skin.
The most common body contouring treatment spots are:
- Love handles
Non-surgical body contouring treatments are not weight-loss procedures. They’re good options for people who are close to their ideal weight but who want to target specific areas of concern.
At Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center, we offer CoolSculpting, Z-Wave, truSculpt 3D body contouring, and Emsculpt.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved procedure that uses cooling technology to freeze fat cells so that your lymphatic system can eliminate them from your body over time.
Fat cells are more susceptible to damage from cold temperatures than other types of cells. CoolSculpting technology targets the treatment areas, breaking down the fat while leaving other cells intact.
The right candidates for this procedure are those in overall good health who are close to their ideal weight. If you have poor skin tone, loose skin, Raynaud’s phenomenon, are pregnant or nursing, or are obese, we will look for alternative treatments.
During the procedure, we use a handheld device to target the treatment area. The entire process can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
Benefits of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that requires no anesthesia and no downtime, so you can get back to most of your regular activities right after you get the treatment.
This body contouring treatment also allows you to get gradual results that look natural. The lymphatic system will start eliminating the dead fat cells over time, and most people see full results within six months of treatment.
What Is Z-Wave?
Z-Wave is a body contouring treatment option for people who have cellulite dimpling. It’s a non-invasive procedure that uses acoustic radial wave therapy to stimulate your body’s natural processes, including:
- Softening internal structures that contribute to cellulite
- Stimulating the lymphatic system for waste removal
- Improving collagen production
- Encouraging the formation of new blood cells
During a Z-Wave treatment, we drive sound waves into the areas where cellulite is visible, breaking up tissue around the cellulite. When the tissues break down, the gas bubbles that contribute to the appearance of dimpling also break down, leaving behind smoother skin.
Z-Wave is most appropriate for people who maintain a healthy weight and stay active but still struggle with cellulite. It also works well with CoolSculpting.
Benefits of Z-Wave
Z-Wave stimulates your body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin its firmness and keeps it hydrated. A boost in collagen production can help prevent cellulite in the future and can help you achieve healthier, more youthful skin.
It is also a long-lasting procedure, as long as you continue to pair it with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
What Is truSculpt 3D Body Contouring?
The truSculpt 3D body contouring procedure uses radiofrequency to target stubborn fat. The radiofrequency energy breaks down the fat cells, and your lymphatic system naturally eliminates them.
This treatment uses heat to reduce fat and decrease the circumference of fat cells. We use a specially designed handpiece that transmits radiofrequency energy past your skin’s surface and right to the subcutaneous fat, which the heat kills.
The truSculpt 3D body contouring device works in many areas, so you can target the exact locations you want to treat.
Benefits of truSculpt 3D Body Contouring
This non-surgical body contouring option offers lasting results. Once you eliminate fat cells, they do not return unless you gain weight.
The radiofrequency in the treatment stimulates the production of collagen, as well, leading to improved skin tone and helping with skin laxity.
Another benefit that truSculpt 3D offers is that treatments are fast. For small areas, a session can take as little as 15 minutes. For larger areas, you can expect the session to last about 60 minutes.
What Is Emsculpt?
Emsculpt is an FDA-approved body contouring system that helps eliminate stubborn fat while also sculpting muscles. It uses electromagnetic energy at a high frequency to target the muscles in the treatment area.
The Emsculpt technology forces the muscles to tense, performing the same types of contractions they would make during vigorous exercise. The muscle tissues adapt to this movement by burning fat.
Benefits of Emsculpt
Emsculpt allows you not only to burn fat but also to build muscle. Muscle will continue to burn fat, so it is a good way of preventing pockets of fat from forming in the future.
Since it is not an invasive procedure, there’s no downtime.
