Non-invasive body contouring is the fastest growing area of cosmetic dermatology, and for good reason! After all, who wouldn’t want to achieve their fat loss and body goals while avoiding painful surgeries and lengthy recoveries? But how is it possible to contour your body without surgery?
Well, thanks to new technologies, it is now possible to reduce stubborn fat pockets and improve body contours without surgery, scars or downtime. Not only is body contouring a safe alternative to traditional liposuction, but it is also extremely effective.
But with so many body contouring options out there, how do you know which treatment is right for you? We’ve compiled a list of the top body contouring procedures so you can find the treatment that’s best for you.
1. Laser Lipo
One of the most popular forms of non-invasive body contouring is laser lipo. First, let’s talk about how it works as well as some of the specific benefits that come with this treatment.
Body Lyft’s Lipo Laser uses low-level lasers to target the fat stored in your body and aims to convert these deposits into energy. By using various wavelengths of fiber-optic lasers, Body Lyft’s Laser Lipo can melt these stubborn fat pockets and allow them to naturally released by the body.
One of the additional benefits of laser liposuction is that it helps to increase the production of collagen, which tightens the skin. In short, laser liposuction heats the skin from the bottom-most internal layer up to create a tightening effect.
Some fast facts about laser lipo:
- It is safe and effective
- Can be used to target areas like the hips, thighs, waist, arms, back, and more
- Virtually painless, you can expect to feel a calming, warm sensation
- The procedure usually takes about 25 minutes per area
- You should begin to see major results within a few treatments
Most people describe the laser lipo session as relatively relaxing, many even fall asleep!
2. Body Lyft MuscleMax
Another popular form of body contouring is electrotherapy (also known as Electrical Muscle Stimulation). Body Lyft’s MuscleMax utilizes the benefits of EMS for body contouring and muscle toning. One of the greatest benefits of Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is its ability to strengthen weak muscles and contour your body! Which means not only will your muscles be getting a great workout, you’ll also be contouring your body.
Not to mention that EMS is 150% stronger than exercise! Additionally, MuscleMax also rids your body of cellulite, puffiness, and toxins, as well as assisting in weight loss.
Some fast facts about Body Lyft’s MuscleMax:
- Perfect for those who have achieved their target weight that are looking to add extra definition to their muscles
- A session typically lasts for about 30 minutes
- Average results are 15 to 20 percent muscle growth and fat reduction in the area after treatment
There is no downtime after EMS so you can resume your normal routine after the treatment.
3. Ultrasonic Cavitation
One of the most effective and fairly new forms of body contouring is ultrasonic cavitation (also known as non-surgical lipo). So how does this new body contouring technique work?
Well, in short, ultrasonic cavitation uses ultrasonic waves to turn fat cells into free fatty acids, which are easier for the body to get rid of. By liquefying these stubborn fat cells, your body can naturally metabolize them and release them through the liver. Additionally, ultrasonic cavitation tightens the skin, making it especially effective at contouring your body.
Some fast facts about ultrasonic cavitation:
- Ultrasonic cavitation is virtually painless and requires no downtime
- A session typically lasts between 30-40 minutes
- Common target areas are the midsection, upper arms, thighs, hips, and chin
In order to get the best results it’s recommended to get multiple treatments, however, most people see results in as little as 2-3 treatments.
Radiofrequency (RF) is another popular body contouring method. RF aims to reshape the desired areas of the body from beneath the superficial layer of the skin. This not only makes it an effective body contouring procedure but also an effective skin tightening treatment.
One of the main benefits of RF is that it stimulates the production of collagen, which is your skin’s built-in anti-aging formula. RF is perfect for those who are looking for a body contouring treatment that also helps make the skin more firm and supple.
Some fast facts about Radiofrequency:
- Since the procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime
- A typical session lasts about an hour, generally 15 minutes for each treated area
- Some common target areas are the face, eyes, tummy, arms, and legs
- Reduces stretch marks, wrinkles, and dimpled areas
RF also provides circumferential reduction, making it a great weight loss tool.
All in all, non-invasive body contouring has quickly risen to popularity because it provides quality results without the need for surgery. Hopefully, this list has helped you figure out which body contouring procedure is right for you.
