Have you ever wished that body contouring could be as easy as a routine nonsurgical procedure? If you’re like many people, you may have considered body contouring procedures such as liposuction or a tummy tuck to sculpt your shape and bring out better definition. However, while these procedures are very effective, they also require surgery, and therefore downtime, which not everyone is ready for. If you want to tone up your body without going under the knife, these three nonsurgical body contouring options may be perfect for you.
CoolSculpting® is a great nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. As its name suggests, it works by literally freezing your fat away. A typical CoolSculpting® session lasts for about an hour per treated area, during which your CoolSculpting® technician will target and freeze fat cells from your problem areas. Once the cells are frozen, they are naturally flushed out of the body, resulting in a smooth, lean look. Results typically show within 10 to 12 weeks.
If the effects of aging in the face and neck area are concerns for you, you may want to consider nonsurgical Ultherapy®. This procedure uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production, which helps to lift and tighten the skin, as well as improving uneven skin tone or other blemishes. For those reluctant to get a facelift or other surgical procedure, Ultherapy® can offer similar results without any downtime.
Cellulite is a common condition that affects 85 percent of women across the United States and unfortunately, diet and exercise aren’t effective remedies for treatment. While many people may be reluctant to opt for surgical procedures to eliminate cellulite, Cellfina™ has been FDA-cleared to effectively and safely remove cellulite for at least two years. The best part? Cellfina™ is minimally invasive and requires limited downtime.
