Everything You Need to Know About Body Contouring

Everything You Need to Know About Body Contouring

If you’re anything like me, then the closer we get to summer 2020, the more anxious we get about showing more skin.

 

It’s safe to say we all have a least one area of stubborn fat on our body. Even if we give it our all during spin class, and don’t cheat on our diets, there’s still an inch or two we can pinch when we look in the mirror.

 

Exercise gurus claim there’s no way to “spot train.” And they’re right! Ab challenges will build up overall strength and endurance, but it won’t banish loose skin and extra fat. Until recently, the body contouring industry was limited to surgical procedures like liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

 

However, non-invasive procedures like CoolScuplting and BodyTite are refreshing innovations in the cosmetic industry. Women can now sculpt their most frustrating trouble areas and create a leaner, tighter silhouette.

Learn about your options

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting has taken over the fashion and health industry with a record of 3.5 million treatments performed worldwide. The science behind CoolSculpting is harnessing the power of cold to essentially freeze unwanted fat and melt it away. Scientists found that fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than muscle and surrounding tissue. The cold targets existing fat cells and permanently destroys them to slim your figure.

 

CoolSculpting is the perfect solution for vanishing “muffin tops,” “love handles,” and thighs.

It’s quick, easy, and incredibly effective. In just 35 minutes you can be in and out of the office. After your procedure, you can watch your body radically transform within the following 3 weeks.

BodyTite

BodyTite combines radiofrequency and heat to tackle sagging skin and liposuction. It can be used all over the body to create younger smoother skin. Some of my clients choose Bodytite to target loose skin and wrinkles around the neck and a younger look and feel of the lower face and jaw line. It’s the alternative to more costly and invasive options like the facelift to rejuvenate the skin.

 

If you’re struggling with loose skin BodyTite could be the answer to your prayers. At our office, we love that it can lift and tighten the skin in the face, stomach, arms, flanks, backs, hips, buttocks, and thighs. My Plastic Surgeon friend want’s to use my new machine!

 

Typically treatments last around 60 minutes, but it can vary depending on the area being treated. During consultations, I like to take the time to talk with women. What areas have you been covering up, or sucking in, or poking at in the mirror? If you have a magic wand, what would you change?

 

Once I have a clear picture of your goals, I can tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs. Every client is different.

What are the benefits?

Surgical procedures come with a set of risks and complications like infection, extreme pain, and scarring. With non-invasive body contouring treatments, women can avoid putting their bodies through the physical stress and recovery time that accompanies surgical alternatives.

 

The risks associated with surgery make it undesirable or inaccessible for several women. Did you know if you are taking certain medications like blood thinners, then you won’t be viable for surgery? Non-invasive body contouring procedures serve more women, especially ladies who looking to drop those last 10 pounds.  

 

CoolSculpting vanishes fat cells for good! This means women have longer-lasting results as long as they stay active and eat well. As a functional medicine practitioner, I can guide you through the optimal workout routine and nutrition plan. I use everything in my toolbox to create a holistic program that will keep you energized and toned so you feel and look your best.
