body contouring


Any cosmetic treatment that seeks to change or enhance the shape of any part of the body is considered body contouring, whether that treatment is surgical or completely non-invasive. Individuals of all stripes have used body contouring treatments to help deal with stubborn fat and to tighten up sagging skin.


The most widely known surgical body contouring procedures are liposuction, tummy tucks, and facelifts, but any procedure that works to tighten or minimize excess skin fits under the label. These procedures wouldn’t be popular if they didn’t work! However, some patients might balk at surgical treatments since they’re invasive and involved, and so seek alternatives. General anesthesia and scalpels turn some off, the stitches and scars are unwelcome to others, and many don’t have the time to spend recovering after a surgery. Many factors that emerge from a surgical procedure are dissuasive to potential cosmetic patients.

The newest advances in non-invasive procedures have caused non-surgical alternatives to become widely available, and many of these non-invasive options are just as effective as liposuction for certain patients. CoolSculpting is by far the most popular of all non-invasive fat reduction procedures. CoolSculpting presents a compelling non-invasive option that affects stubborn fat bulges in a way comparable to liposuction. In addition, new thermal procedures like Thermage Skin Tightening have expanded the skin-tightening market, and offer a non-invasive, painless alternative to facelifts.


The field of new non-invasive fat reduction treatments is wide. Most non-invasive treatments utilize thermal energy via lasers or radiofrequency waves to reduce fat. CoolSculpting stands out from these since it’s the sole FDA-approved fat reduction treatment that uses cooling technology to freeze fat away. Now the most popular non-invasive fat reduction procedure in the world, CoolSculpting relies on the cryolipolysis process. If subcutaneous fat cells are subjected to temperatures cold enough, they freeze, rupture and die. Fat cells freeze at a temperature safe enough that surrounding skin remains undamaged, making this treatment possible. Scientific studies have tracked patient results and discovered that after even a single CoolSculpting treatment; patients can see a fat reduction of up to 25%.¹

For obese clients, liposuction can often be the better option, but healthy individuals that are struggling with stubborn fat bulges that no amount of dieting or exercise seems to affect often find CoolSculpting to be their superior option. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is painless and quick, and there’s no recovery necessary.

CoolSculpting is a fantastic treatment for trouble areas, like upper arm fat, love handles, double chins, belly or thigh fat, and the like. The results that CoolSculpting produces look very natural, and once the cryolipolysis process has ruptured fat cells, those cells won’t grow back. After the fat cells have been flushed out of the body as waste, the new and slimmer look is long lasting and natural-looking.¹


Thermage is a new, popular non-invasive skin tightening treatment. The FDA approved it as safe, and it’s great for promoting skin laxity in the face, neck, arms, or stomach. Thermage is safe for every kind of skin and painless. The procedure is done in an hour or less, and requires no recovery time.

Thermage uses radio frequency technology to penetrate through to the deeper layers of skin and apply thermal energy directly to where the skin’s structural proteins are. This energy triggers the strengthening of fibers and stimulates elastin and collagen production, factors that reduce sagging and pulls the skin taut.²

Thermage’s clinical reviews have shown that the treatment rejuvenates the skin in multiple ways. Aside from newly firm skin, patients also see reduced fat and blemishes, improved skin texture and tone, and an overall fresher appearance to the skin.2 Researchers concluded, “Significant improvement in skin laxity was observed in all [patients]. All patients reported that they were satisfied with the procedure and noticed visible improvement in their skin condition after the treatment.”3
