Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring refers to several noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures that permanently eliminate pockets of fat and tighten loose skin, giving you the shape you’ve worked hard to achieve. These procedures aren’t for weight loss, so the best candidates are already close to their healthy body weight.

What is SculpSure®?

SculpSure is a noninvasive laser treatment that safely and permanently removes localized areas of fat from your abdomen, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs, and under your chin.

How does SculpSure eliminate pockets of fat?

The SculpSure laser operates at a wavelength that safely passes through your skin but is absorbed by fat cells. As the fat cells absorb the laser’s energy, the heat destroys them; then your body naturally eliminates them as waste.

SculpSure has four applicators. When all four are used, your entire abdomen can be treated at one time.

After one 25-minute treatment, you may lose 24% of the fat in the treated areas.* It takes time to clear away the destroyed fat cells, so you’ll begin to see the difference in about six weeks, with optimal results in about 12 weeks.

What is TempSure™ Envi?

TempSure is the first noninvasive skin-tightening device that’s capable of providing full-body treatment. Its differently-sized handpieces can treat every part of your body, from small areas around your eyes, mouth, and neck, to your abdomen, back, arms, hands, knees, and buttocks.

Besides tightening loose skin, TempSure also smooths fine lines and wrinkles and diminishes the appearance of cellulite.

How does TempSure tighten skin?

TempSure uses radiofrequency (RF) waves that heat tissues in deep layers of your skin. The heat triggers collagen production, then collagen-rich cells gradually migrate toward the surface of your skin.

As your skin continuously sheds old cells at the surface, your new skin is stronger and tighter due to the boost in collagen. Your rejuvenated skin also helps smooth out existing wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles.

How does Kybella® eliminate a double chin?

Kybella is a minimally invasive, injectable treatment that eliminates submental fat, or a double chin. The injection contains deoxycholic acid, which naturally and painlessly breaks down fat cells.

Multiple tiny injections are used to destroy fat cells evenly. After your body eliminates the waste, your double chin is gone for good.

EMSCULPT

The only FDA approved device which targets muscles.

Quick, visible results in little as 1 month.


Current non-invasive body shaping therapies address fat and skin. But what happens when one has less than an inch of pinchable fat, or wants to improve the tone and shape of one's stomach or buttocks? After all, more than a third of one's body is comprised of muscles.

The EMSCULPT is the only procedure to help both women and men build muscle and sculpt their body. In addition, the EMSCULPT creates the world's first non-invasive buttock toning procedure.


Minimizes fat.
