What Is Body Contouring?

Body Sculpting Treatment | Med Spa Louisville

Body contouring is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment. There are different types of body contouring treatments available based on your goals. Each helps remove or reduce stubborn pockets of fat from your body.

Most treatments are based on:

  • Injection lipolysis
  • Radiofrequency lipolysis
  • Laser lipolysis
  • Cryolipolysis

Injection lipolysis involves injectables like deoxycholic acid, which target fat cells.

Radiofrequency lipolysis treatments use ultrasound and heating technology. Laser treatments use controlled laser energy and heating. Cryolipolysis (controlled cool) uses freezing temperatures to destroy fat cells.

These treatments are not intended as weight loss options. Visit a medical spa today to determine if you’re an ideal candidate for treatment. For most procedures, you shouldn’t have a body mass index over 30.

The Benefits

One of the top benefits of body contouring is it’s nonsurgical. Since it’s minimally invasive, you can receive treatment and return to your daily life. Body contouring recovery periods are nonexistent.

In addition to eliminating excess fat, treatments can also reshape (contour) areas of the body or get rid of extra skin. 

Body contouring treatments can help target different areas of the body, including the:

  • Back
  • Arms
  • Belly and flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Neck and chin

Treatments can help you look and feel thinner. You can target areas that are unresponsive to diet or exercise to achieve a desired shape. 

Reducing the appearance of saggy, wrinkled, or loose skin can also make your skin look younger or smoother. 

Potential Risks

As with all treatments, there are potential risks you should consider before a body contouring treatment. For example:

  • Swelling
  • Red skin
  • Pain or soreness
  • Hives or rash

However, these side effects are minimal compared to the risks associated with surgical treatment options. With surgical options, you might experience scarring, infections, nerve damage, blood clots, or asymmetry.

To avoid potential risks, visit a licensed medical spa and receive treatment from an experienced professional. The global body contouring market could reach $9.1 billion by 2024 as more people focus on improving their aesthetics with nonsurgical options.
