Body Contouringin Lexington, Wellesley Hills, Peabody
What is Body Contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring procedures use advanced energy to eliminate unwanted fat that is resistant to a healthy diet or exercise. Without surgery or downtime, you can enjoy noticeable fat reduction, a more defined figure, and dramatic results.
How Body Contouring Works
Without ever touching your skin, non-surgical body contouring uses targeted, non-invasive energy to deliver deep heating to the layer of excess fat just beneath the skin. This targeted heat damages the fat without causing harm to the surrounding tissue. These damaged cells are flushed away naturally by the lymphatic system, and over time, a leaner and more sculpted physique will emerge.
What Areas Can be Treated With Body Contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring provides lasting results on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, inner and outer thighs, and upper arm. It may also be used to treat a double chin. One of the advantages of body contouring is that it can cover a large area of the body at once or it can be used to define specific areas and stubborn fat pockets where you struggle to achieve definition. Body contouring can be customized to your exact needs, helping you achieve the shape you’ve been working toward – all without surgery.
Body Contouring Safety & Recovery
Body Contouring Candidates
Many patients in Lexington, Peabody, and Wellesley opt for body contouring procedures after massive weight loss, pregnancy, or as an accompaniment to regular exercise. However, if you’ve undergone major weight loss or pregnancy and have significant loose skin, you may not be an ideal candidate for this specific option. During a consultation, we’ll help you learn more about whether you’re a good candidate for body contouring. Our team will work with you to develop a treatment plan that incorporates your cosmetic goals, a healthier lifestyle, and our best non-invasive options.
What Do Treatments Feel Like?
During treatment, and for several hours afterward, there is a feeling of warmth in the treated area. Each body contouring session takes around 30 to 45 minutes to complete, although this can vary depending on factors like your treatment areas and intended results. Results can be seen within two weeks and continue to improve over the next few months. Once the unwanted fat cells are destroyed, they will not return. For the best results, maintain a consistent, healthy lifestyle through proper diet and exercise.
Body Contouring Safety & Recovery
Comfortable and safe, body contouring procedures provide great results without the downtime associated with a more invasive surgical procedure. After treatment, you’ll be able to go right back to your day-to-day activities.
Although body contouring is helpful at shedding inches from your waistline, it is not a weight loss treatment. Not everyone will be qualified for this type of fat removal – especially if they are not near or at their target weight and body mass index. However, body contouring is appropriate for many people who come in for a consultation, and we can find the appropriate procedures to help you destroy stubborn pockets of fat in certain areas at Aspire MedSpa.
What’s Unique About Body Contouring Treatments at Aspire Medspa?
Although some people can enjoy satisfying results in a single procedure with body contouring, most patients come in for multiple sessions to experience the optimal reduction in the fat layer and ideal shape in areas like the abdomen or thighs. A typical plan involves up to four sessions scheduled a week or so apart depending on your schedule and goals from the procedure.
Results of Body Contouring
After your treatment plan has finished, you can experience up to a 60% reduction in stubborn fat cells in your problem areas with body contouring. This correlates to many patients losing 2-4 inches off their waistline, all without surgery, downtime, or discomfort.
The individual results of body contouring are more or less permanent with a healthy lifestyle. If you were to gain weight in the future, the fat increases will be proportionate throughout your body, meaning they won’t first grow back in your treatment area.
Some patients also experience mild to moderate skin tightening in the treated areas due to residual heat from the fat layer stimulating the dermis, where structural proteins like collagen and elastin are formed to help keep skin tight. For further skin tightening benefits, our team can recommend other treatments for excess skin to help you look and feel your best after body contouring.
