Body Contouring | Invasive And Non-Invasive

Body contouring refers to cosmetic procedures that surgically or non-invasively reshape and restore the body. Millions of men and women choose body contouring to improve their physical appearance. These procedures typically help reduce excess fat and tighten skin laxity. Read on to learn more about body contouring options to determine which may be right for you.

Surgical Body Contouring

Surgical body contouring has long been popular for its effectiveness and great results. The most popular surgical body contouring procedure is liposuction. Other popular treatments include facelifts or tummy tucks that lift sagging skin or remove excess skin. While these procedures in surgical body contouring are effective, many adults are wary of them due to the invasive nature of cosmetic surgery. Their concerns include the use of general anesthesia, scalpels and stitches, scars, and extensive recovery times.

Non-invasive Body Contouring

Thankfully, advancements in cosmetic procedures have brought about non-invasive options for reducing fat and shaping attractive contours. Some of the most popular options for non-invasive body contouring are CoolSculpting and Emsculpt. CoolSculpting freezes away stubborn fat and Emsculpt melts fat while simultaneously building muscle. Learn more about CoolSculpting and Emsculpt to determine if non-invasive body contouring is right for you.

Cool Sculpting | Freeze Away Fat

There are many options available in the cosmetic market for non-invasive fat reduction. Many of these treatments utilize thermal energy (via lasers or radiofrequency) to melt the fat. Cool Sculpting separates itself from these as the only FDA-cleared fat reduction procedure to use controlled cooling to, quite literally, freeze away fat. Also well known as fat freezing, Cool Sculpting is the most popular non-invasive fat reducing treatment in the world today. This treatment uses a clinically developed process called cryolipolysis. This process exposes subcutaneous fat to freezing temperatures, with no damage to overlying skin. Studies show that just one Cool Sculpting treatment can reduce up to 25% stubborn fat.

CoolSculpting is ideal for healthy adults who struggle with stubborn bulges resistant to diet and exercise. Millions of people worldwide choose fat freezing treatments over liposuction for the quick, painless, and effective nature of CoolSculpting.

EmSculpt is the first non-invasive body contouring treatment to target both fat and muscle through the use of HIFEM energy, or High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic energy. Emsculpt treatments stimulate super powerful muscle contractions in the major muscle groups: abdomen, buttocks, legs, and upper arms. These contractions are known as supramaximal contractions. In just a single, 30 min, Emsculpt treatments produce the equivalent of 20,000 squats, crunches, lunges, or bicep curls (depending on the target area). These powerful and outstanding results are impossible to achieve at the gym.

Men and women who want to build muscle while reducing fat choose Emsculpt treatments. Clinical studies on Emsculpt show that one treatment can reduce fat by 27% and a 15 – 20% muscle mass increase.
