Struggling to achieve a toned body can often feel like an uphill battle, leaving many feeling unmotivated and hopeless. The reality is that despite dieting and exercising, sometimes it can feel like our bodies won’t cooperate, which can be incredibly discouraging. Fortunately, there is now a safer and less invasive alternative — non-surgical body contouring.
Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center proudly offers body contouring services in Oklahoma City, OK. Body contouring is a revolutionary treatment that helps you reshape and redefine your body without surgery. At Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center, we utilize non-invasive body contouring techniques because we believe in providing treatments that are not only effective but also safe and comfortable for our clients. This approach allows us to deliver noticeable results with minimal downtime.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring, also known as body sculpting, is a collection of non-surgical cosmetic treatments that reveal a firmer and more toned body hidden underneath layers of fat or loose skin. These treatments work by either reducing fat cells or tightening the skin. The process involves using heat, cold, or sound waves to target and break down fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. These damaged fat cells are then naturally processed and eliminated by the body over time.
Overall, body contouring offers an attractive option for those looking to refine their figure without the invasiveness and risks associated with surgical treatments. This approach provides a way to achieve a more sculpted, toned, and firm body with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Our Body Contouring Treatments
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body sculpting treatment that contours the body and reduces fat pockets through cryolipolysis. This treatment can be performed on various body parts, like the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, and chin. The treatment involves placing a gel pad and applicator on the target area and cooling the fat cells to a temperature that destroys them without harming surrounding tissues. The body then naturally processes and eliminates the treated fat cells, resulting in a more sculpted appearance. On the first visit, CoolSculpting can eliminate up to 20% of body fat in the targeted area. This treatment has no downtime and minimal to no pain.
CoolSmooth® is a specific applicator used in the body contouring treatment. It is designed to treat areas of non-pinchable fat, such as the outer thighs — what some call “saddle bags.” This area is hard to improve, making CoolSmooth® one of the most effective ways to help diminish that fat. Fortunately, Mariposa Aesthetics is the first in OKC to provide this treatment.
The CoolSmooth® applicator does not use suction like the standard CoolSculpting applicator. Instead, it lies flat against the skin and cools the fat cells to induce apoptosis (controlled cell death). This makes it especially effective for treating areas with more firm or fibrous fat.
Benefits of Body Contouring
Non-surgical body contouring treatments do not require incisions, anesthesia, or significant recovery time, allowing you to resume your daily activities immediately following treatment.
Safe and Effective
The treatments have been thoroughly tested and are FDA-approved, ensuring they are safe and effective for reducing fat and tightening skin.
Quick and Convenient
Most body contouring treatments take less than an hour, making it easy to fit into a busy schedule.
The results of non-surgical body contouring are gradual, as the body naturally processes and eliminates the treated fat cells. This leads to more natural-looking results compared to surgical treatments.
Once fat cells are destroyed, they are permanently removed from the body, leading to long-lasting results if a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
The treatments can be tailored to address specific concerns and target multiple body areas.
Frequently Asked Questions About Body Contouring
Can body contouring help with weight loss?
Body contouring is not a weight loss treatment. It is designed to target and reduce pockets of fat and improve skin laxity. It is most effective for those close to their ideal weight but with stubborn areas of fat or loose skin that do not respond to diet and exercise.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of body contouring treatments required will depend on the treatment area, the treatment chosen, and your desired results. Typically, a series of body contouring treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results.
Who is a good candidate for body contouring?
An ideal candidate for body contouring is someone who is close to their ideal weight but has stubborn pockets of fat or loose skin that do not respond to diet and exercise. Other factors affecting candidacy include age, skin elasticity, and overall health. It is essential to have realistic expectations about the results and to understand that body contouring is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle or significant weight loss. A good candidate should also maintain a healthy lifestyle after the treatment to ensure long-lasting results. It is crucial to consult with us to determine your suitability for body sculpting treatment.
