Because everyone’s body is different, individuals tend to store fat in different areas. For some people, fat can accumulate in areas that may keep them from obtaining their ideal body shape, even with a healthy diet and targeted exercises.
With today’s advances, surgery isn’t the only way to address stubborn pockets of fat. If you aren’t happy with where fat accumulates on your body and you are interested in non-surgical body sculpting treatments, we offer several different treatment options in Oklahoma City, OK. From treatments that destroy stubborn fat in targeted areas to devices that smooth out cellulite and tone muscles, we have all of the resources we need at Mariposa Aesthetics and Laser Center to design a customized treatment plan for you.
What Is Body Contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring is a term for any service that can help mold your body into a more desired shape without using surgical procedures. Many people have bumps and bulges that they might want to have removed, while others may have concerns about uneven skin texture due to cellulite. Some patients may even have body shape concerns that can be addressed by tightening the skin. By using different platforms and treatments, we can help to address all three of these concerns.
While body contouring can help to address stubborn fat and may result in the loss of several pounds, it is not a weight loss treatment. Body sculpting can subtly change the shape of targeted areas and can be a great treatment option for individuals who want to achieve a small amount of fat reduction in a specific area. Different treatments may be suitable for people with varying body types and goals so you should talk to your doctor about which body contouring service may be best for you.
What Are the Different Types of Body Contouring
CoolSculpting is a fat-reducing device that works by cooling the fat to a temperature that causes fat cell death. During this non-invasive body contouring treatment, an applicator is applied to the area that you want to have treated. Gentle vacuum technology will pull the skin into the applicator where it can begin to cool the fat layer. A gel pad will protect your skin. This treatment is best used in areas that have “pinchable” fat since the fat is isolated using vacuum technology.
This treatment can feel cold and can sometimes cause a stinging or aching feeling. Often, these sensations become less intense as the area becomes more numb. During treatment, you can relax, read a book, or watch a movie. After treatment, you may have some redness, swelling, and numbness which goes away with time. You can start noticing results 2 to 6 months after treatment.
CoolSmooth is a newer version of CoolSculpting that can be used to treat the abdomen, flanks, and outer thighs. It is a non-vacuum treatment that can be performed faster than traditional CoolSculpting treatments. One of the main benefits of this non-surgical body contouring device is that it can be used on areas that have fat that isn’t pinchable. It allows us to treat a wider variety of areas.
truSculpt 3D is a non-surgical body contouring device that uses radiofrequency energy to help destroy fat cells and shape areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, chin, arms, and thighs. During treatment, a handpiece equipped with radiofrequency technology is gently glided over the skin for several minutes in each section. The fat in the area will be heated and eventually broken down and absorbed by the body. During treatment, you will feel the warmth that is comfortable and painless. This treatment offers an average of 24% fat reduction.
EMSCULPT is a treatment that can both reduce fat and tone muscles. This device utilizes HIFEM® technology, or high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology. It works by stimulating muscular contractions in the area that you want to treat. While treatments are only 30 minutes long, the device can stimulate up to 20,000 muscle contractions in one treatment. As a result, the muscles can become toned and strengthened. During the treatment, fat is also burned for the energy needed for these muscle contractions.
If one of your main concerns is cellulite, ZWave therapy may be a good choice. By using high-energy radial shockwaves, the device improves circulation and boosts the function of the lymphatic system. It can also help reduce fat in the area and cause the tissues in the area to become stronger. All of these benefits can decrease dimples on the surface of the skin and make your skin tighter and more toned.
Skin Tightening Treatments
There are many different methods that can be used to help tighten skin. For stretch marks, skin laxity, sagging skin, and more, we offer RF microneedling, Ultherapy®, ThermiTight®, and other skin tightening treatments. Some of these can be used alongside other body contouring treatments. It is important to always discuss the concerns that you want to have addressed and all of your non-surgical body contouring options with your doctor so that you can find the solutions that are most targeted to your specific concerns.
