If you’re struggling to see results from your weight loss journey in certain areas, you’re not alone. It’s frustrating when diet and exercise don’t seem to be enough when it comes to achieving the figure you want, but the good news is that you don’t need to resort to surgery. There are more non-surgical options on the market than ever, and plenty of ways to achieve the slim, contoured figure you want with the right package of treatments. Here’s what to know about our two most popular options.

What is truSculpt ID?

truSculpt ID® uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to gently heat fat cells so they can be gradually flushed through the body’s natural pathways. It can be used on many different fatty areas of the body like the stomach, thighs, flanks, and buttocks, and can also effectively treat cellulite in these areas. Additionally, truSculpt ID® can tighten skin as it generates heat. Each customizable treatment session takes about 20 minutes and you can opt for more than one area at a time in order to get the most out of your treatments. There’s no downtime after truSculpt ID® and you can return to your regular schedule immediately. You’ll see your results emerge over the course of a few weeks and can improve your results with a package of treatments customized to your goals and specific treatment areas.

What is EMSCULPT®?

EMSCULPT® is a revolutionary new body sculpting treatment that uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to cause muscle contractions beyond what the body can achieve on its own. The result is intense fat burning and muscle building at the same time. EMSCULPT® can be used on areas like the stomach, buttocks, and arms for a toned, sculpted look with just a few treatments. There’s no downtime after EMSCULPT® and you can return to your regular schedule afterward. Most patients benefit from a package of treatments spaced every few days for a few weeks, during which you’ll see results like greater muscle mass and less fat. You might experience some soreness after Emsculpt®, but you can customize your treatment package to your fitness goals and return for touchup treatments as often as needed.

Which Treatment Is Best for Me?

The most important thing to consider when choosing between truSculpt ID® and EMSCULPT® is whether you’re looking for skin tightening or want to build muscle. truSculpt ID® is best for patients who have recently lost weight and are looking to reduce excess skin as well as stubborn fat, while EMSCULPT® is best for patients who are looking to build muscle mass and achieve definition. During a consultation with our team, we can discuss your best options for non-surgical body contouring based on your goals.

If you’ve lost a lot of weight, it’s common to have excess skin and stubborn fat that won’t go away with even the strictest diet and exercise. If this is disheartening, it’s important to know that you have options. One of the best ways to reshape your body after losing weight is through body contouring, so here are some things to know about it and how it can help you hit your goals.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a type of cosmetic procedure that has the goal of slimming and refining your figure after you lose weight. Body contouring can be surgical (body lift or tummy tuck), minimally-invasive (liposuction), or non-surgical (EMSCULPT® or truSculpt™ iD). Body contouring usually addresses two different areas: loose skin left behind after you lose weight, and stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise.

Who’s an Ideal Candidate?

The most important factors to keep in mind when considering body contouring is your lifestyle and healthy habits. If you’ve recently lost weight, it’s important to make sure your weight has stabilized for at least six months before opting for body contouring. If you gain weight again or keep losing weight, it can negatively affect your results and require another procedure. You should have healthy habits established (to help you maintain your results!) and be non-smoking. During your consultation, you’ll discuss your health history to determine whether body contouring is right for you.

What is Recovery Like?

Depending on whether you opt for non-surgical or minimally-invasive options, you can expect some recovery after body contouring. Some options, like EMSCULPT®, don’t require any downtime and you can return to your regular schedule immediately after. During your consultation with our team, you’ll receive detailed instructions on what to expect after your unique procedure.

What Results Can I Expect?

With non-invasive body contouring options, it can take time for your final results to emerge. This might also mean that you’ll require a package of treatments for best results. Effective body contouring means a reduction in loose skin and fat, meaning you’ll achieve more defined contours and a slimmer figure. If your weight loss is too extensive, you may need to opt for surgical body contouring, so our team can give you the best idea of what to expect.

Patients who have undergone significant weight loss whether it be from diet, exercise, bariatric surgery, or post-pregnancy changes, often have some loose skin behind that is impossible to tighten up. This can leave them feeling defeated. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we offer a range of body contouring procedures that tightens loose skin and shapes it to fit the new body contour.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring refers to procedures and treatments that improve the appearance of skin and tissue by tightening and reshaping it. By undergoing body contouring treatments, we can help patients to shape their body and achieve their ideal look.

Types of Body Contouring?

At Laser Skin & Wellness, our team of experts offers body contouring treatments to help you feel confident. Body contouring works by tightening up the tissue and contouring it to the body’s form. Our body contouring methods are:

TruSculpt iD

TruSculpt iD is a non-invasive liposuction option. It uses advanced technology to remove inches in the waist, bra fat, hips, and thighs without any surgery. It uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of fat. This triggers a cell response that eliminates a large portion of fat cells. Many patients see an average of 24% fat reduction within 12 weeks of treatment.

Ideal Contour

Ideal Contour is a noninvasive radio-frequency device that reduces the circumference of areas like the abdomen, arms, thighs, back, and bra fat. This treatment can also help to reduce cellulite, tighten, and firm skin. The device is gentle and comfortable. Most patients will feel the sensation of a warm, deep massage as the radio-frequency energy is delivered to the treatment area.

Emsculpt

Emsculpt is a noninvasive treatment aimed at strengthening and firming muscles in the body. This is a great option that can define the abs and lift the buttocks. It uses HIFRM (high intensity focused electromagnetic) technology to create strong contractions in the treated area. By doing so, the muscle fibers become stronger which leads to the loss of excess fat and builds muscles.

Schedule a Consultation

If you have excess, loose skin and some stubborn fat deposits then look into a body contouring procedure. Along with these great treatments, we also offer weight management services and wellness services to help you stay healthy and fit. To get started, contact our office for a consultation appointment.
