Never quite achieved the summer bod you were hoping for this year? Don’t worry; you don’t need to resign to a winter sweatshirt bod if you don’t want to! Instead of hibernating this fall and winter, you can get to work on next season’s summer body now so you can get the most out of spring break and summer vacation as soon as sunny days are back again.
How? These four popular med spa treatments are a great place to start.
One of the most popular nonsurgical body contouring tools, CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze away unwanted fat cells in nearly any area of your body. In as little as three weeks, you should begin to see a slimmer physique, with final CoolSculpting results developing in around three months. That gives you plenty of time to plan your CoolSculpting treatment, book an appointment and see maximum results all before next summer rolls around.
It is important to note, though, that nonsurgical devices like CoolSculpting aren’t designed as weight loss tools. So you’ll see the best results if you come as close as you can to your target weight before getting CoolSculpting. Still, this treatment can help you trim away stubborn fat in areas like your hips, waist or thighs that tend to be resistant to diet and exercise.
The latest body contouring tool on the market, EMSCULPT is unique in that it stimulates muscle contractions in your abdominals and/or buttocks to create a firm, toned appearance. EMSCULPT uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) energy to deliver roughly 20,000 muscle contractions in one 30-minute session. This level of muscle contractions would not be possible through exercise alone.
The result is a lean, toned physique that gradually develops following your EMSCULPT treatments. Most people get the most out of EMSCULPT after a series of four or more treatment sessions, each spaced about two weeks apart.
3. Cellulite Reduction
There’s nothing like those dreaded orange peel or cottage cheese lumps and bumps to dampen your confidence in a bathing suit. But before you get down on yourself, know that nearly 90 percent of women experience cellulite at some point in their lives, and even the fittest of people can get it.
Fortunately, there are now several cellulite reduction treatments, including Cellfina®, Profound® RF and QWO® — all of which are nonsurgical and do not require downtime. Better still, cellulite reduction treatments typically yield results that can last for years to come.
These treatments work slightly differently, but all address the underlying cause of cellulite: tight bands of connective tissue that “squeeze” surrounding fat cells into bulges. This forms those lumps and bumps you see on the surface. By releasing those bands and diminishing the underlying fat, cellulite reduction treatments effectively smooth away cellulite.
4. Nonsurgical Mommy Makeover
Think a few of these summer body treatments sound like a good fit for you? Combine them in a nonsurgical mommy makeover for a completely customized experience and results!
