What is body contouring?

Body contouring is any type of procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body by reducing fat, reduction of cellulite, & Skin tightening. 

The areas of the body that can be contoured are:

  • Abs
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Legs
  • Face

Body Contouring devices and how they work

ULTRASOUND CAVITATION:

Ultrasonic cavitation is a simple procedure that relies on sound waves to flush fat from the body instead of intensive surgery.

HOW DOES ULTRASONIC CAVITATION WORK?

During an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, noninvasive machines target specific body areas with low-frequency sound waves (they’re what put the “ultrasonic” in “ultrasonic cavitation”) and, in some cases, light suction. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells below the skin’s surface. The pressure eventually causes the fat cells to liquefy and release their contents into the bloodstream.

TARGETED AREAS OF ULTRASONIC CAVITATION

  • Best to treat obesity
  • Flabby arms
  • Thigh fat
  • Any other lumpy protruding fat.

VACUUM RF THERAPY:

Vacuum RF Therapy is an aesthetic technique used to tackle hard-to-shift dimpled fat commonly found in the thighs, stomach, knees, buttocks, and upper arms. This treatment system uses suction and pressure to release the fluids in fat cells that cause cellulite.

HOW VACUUM RF THERAPY WORKS:

A vacuum is created around the target area, lifting the cellulite away from the muscles and encouraging more blood flow. The vacuum is combined with Radio Frequency energy to create superficial and deep heating of connective tissue fibers, dermal collagen fibers, and fat cells. The result is an increase in dermal volume and improved skin texture, appearing tighter and more youthful.

Vacuum RF Therapy can be performed over all major areas of the body, including:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms

RADIO FREQUENCY BODY SCULPTING:

Radiofrequency laser body sculpting (also known as skin tightening) is popular as it removes fat, tightens the skin and improves tone.

How Does Radio Frequency Body Sculpting Work?

The radiofrequency energy penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue where the collagen fibers are embedded. The local laser heat causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibers, and fat cells drain then shrink, while the fibroblast cells (part of our connective tissue) are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastic fibers. The effect of this is tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin with a visible ‘lift’. Fat cells are reduced, and stubborn cellulite looks a lot less noticeable.

When Can I Expect To See Results?

Most patients will be able to notice an immediate result in the tightness of their skin, but results continue to emerge in the days following the treatment too. Skin is remarkably smoother, and muscle tone is more visible. Normally, multiple sessions are required, generally 1 per week until you’ve had about 4-8 treatments in total; this depends on the results you want and your body type.

LASER LIPO 4D:

Laser lipo targets fat cells while sparing other tissues in the body. The laser lipo machine is armed with lasers specifically designed to puncture holes in your fat cells. The lasers slowly perforate the cells so that they deflate. Your body keeps all the fat cells—a good thing since removing fat cells can have unintended consequences such as the fat reappearing in other places, as seen in studies on liposuction—but they shrink. The fat is then released into your interstitial fluid and flushed out by your lymphatic system.

FAQ:

What results can I expect with ultrasound cavitation?

Ultrasound cavitation is used for body shaping and to reduce stubborn fatty areas that don’t seem to budge regardless of diet or exercise. It can also be also used for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening. Although this method of fat reduction can help to speed up the weight loss process when done in conjunction with diet and exercise, results will vary depending on body type, size of the problem area, and post-procedure maintenance and follow-up treatments.

How many sessions are needed to see results?

Patients will be able to see a decrease in their measurements following their first session. While research has shown that most patients require 6-12 sessions in order to achieve more optimal results over their entire body, results depend on the size of the area being treated and desired outcomes.

How often can you perform liposculpture ultrasound cavitation therapy?

Ultrasound cavitation therapy can be safely performed up to two times per week, with three days in between each procedure.

Are the results long-term?

If the results are maintained, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition, they are more likely to last long-term. However, we cannot stop the natural aging that affects your appearance and do recommend maintenance visits.

What guidelines should I follow with ultrasound cavitation?

Prior to the start of your Ultrasonic Body Contouring Treatments, please avoid eating bread, rice, alcohol, and sodas. A low-calorie diet is recommended and it is necessary to drink at least 1.5 liters of water before and after each treatment in order to eliminate the dissolved fat. In keeping up with your treatments, it is also recommended to adopt a low-calorie diet.

You will also want to massage the treated area to stimulate the dispersion of the contents of the eliminated fat cells. Lastly, spend approximately 30 minutes of mild exercise of your choice to increase your metabolic rate to aid in the elimination of the liquified fat. Ultrasound is a non-invasive method of reducing localized fat using ultrasound and radiofrequency, which also has the benefit of skin tightening. The ultrasonic waves vibrate and break up the fat cells, which are then liquefied and eliminated through the lymphatic and urinary systems.

Can I tan before or after receiving treatment?

Tanning is allowed 24 hours before and after receiving treatment.

Can I utilize ultrasound cavitation if I have a medical condition?

Individuals with cardiac and vascular diseases, pacemakers, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid this treatment. Prior to receiving treatment, your personal physician’s certification may be required. Women experiencing their period should also skip treatments during that time.

Who is not a good candidate?

If you are pregnant, have cancer, heart disease, or coronary artery dysfunction of the heart, this procedure isn’t right for you. Additional health issues that could prevent you from receiving treatment include arrhythmia or irregular heart rhythm, have a pacemaker, or have Grade III obesity. If you have any of these conditions, treatments are not recommended.

Who can have Vacuum RF Therapy?

Vacuum RF Therapy can be used by healthy adults, men, and women to reduce cellulite and tighten skin.

Vacuum RF Therapy side effects

Vacuum RF Therapy is considered a safe treatment option, providing effective tightening of the tissues without surgery.

Some people may experience mild side effects; however, these are pretty minimal and short-lived. Here are some common side effects of Vacuum RF:

  • Temporary mild swelling
  • Redness
  • Bruising

Why you should consider Vacuum RF Therapy

  • Improve skin texture, firmness, and elasticity
  • Relaxing skin muscles
  • Tighten the skin
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Reduce the excess fat from thighs and hips
