Body Contouring Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring refers to surgical and nonsurgical treatments and procedures that are designed to sculpt, contour, and shape your body to help you address certain cosmetic concerns and get closer to achieving your aesthetic goals.
Body contouring treatments are often a popular choice following weight loss to tighten up areas of stubborn and resistant fat.
What body contouring treatments are available?
Simon Med Spa offers different types of non-surgical body contouring to help you combat that excess fat that you can’t seem to get rid of even with your hard work and efforts of diet and exercise.
Mesotherapy is a procedure that involves multiple tiny injections of different components, such as vitamins, plant extracts, or pharmaceuticals, that are delivered under your skin into the mesodermal layer to promote the loss of cellulite or fat.
The Viora system is a state-of-the-art IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy that can be used for multiple purposes. IPL treatments penetrate down to the second layer of your skin without harming the top layer. Viora is effective for body contouring, skin rejuvenation and tightening, and the reduction of cellulite, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and unwanted body hair.
Unlike traditional lasers that focus just one wavelength of light at your skin, Viora is an effective non-surgical treatment that uses different wavelengths of light. Viora can target and damage your unwanted fat cells on different areas of the body and works especially well for treating the abdominal area. Multiple treatments might be necessary for the best results.
Who’s a good candidate for body contouring?
You should have clear goals and expectations to be a good candidate for body contouring.
You should also be over 18 and have tried other fat loss methods without any success, such as diet and exercise.
You’re not a suitable candidate for body contouring if you have:
- A pacemaker
- A defibrillator
- A medical history of an aneurysm
Before you decide on a body contouring treatment, you should take sufficient time to think about your expectations and goals and make sure it’s right for you. During your personal consultation with Dr. Lee, you have an opportunity to address your concerns and ask questions.
What are the benefits of body contouring?
Noninvasive body contouring enables you to finally remove unwanted stubborn fat and shape your body. If you’re not happy with the shape of certain areas and would like to decrease fat, tighten, and tone, noninvasive body contouring can be a successful and convenient solution.
Many body contouring treatments can be completed during your lunch hour. Invasive body contouring presents a number of risks, but non-invasive body contouring like the Viora system doesn’t have these risks.
Non-invasive body contouring treatments don’t involve downtime, incisions, or scarring. Non-invasive body contouring can also give you a confidence boost.
