A good diet, exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle come highly recommended, especially when you’re interested in losing fat and toning your body. Still, even with the healthiest lifestyle, stubborn fat may linger. Body contouring treatments can get rid of extra fat, tone your muscles, and tighten your skin. But what is body contouring, and how can it benefit you? Contact us at Aesthetic Essentials in Willoughby, OH, to learn more.
What Is Body Contouring?
The process of body contouring, also called body sculpting, involves eliminating stubborn fat and tightening the skin to enhance natural curves. These procedures have come a long way throughout the years. Previously, achieving an improved figure required invasive surgical methods, such as tummy tucks and liposuction. But now, you can work toward your body goals without surgery.
Most body sculpting techniques are non-invasive, which means that they are not surgical procedures and don’t even involve needles. These treatments generally use heat, cold, or laser energy to help you achieve your desired aesthetic result.
Depending on your needs, we can perform body contouring treatments on a single area or multiple areas. These treatments are an ideal alternative to more invasive procedures, allowing you to enjoy lasting benefits without extensive downtime.
What Areas Can Non-Invasive Body Contouring Treat?
Non-invasive, non-surgical body contouring can target several areas throughout the body:
- Love handles
During your consultation, we’ll discuss which areas you’d like to treat, and we’ll help you choose a body contouring method that will give you the results you’re looking for.
Types of Body Contouring
We’re proud to offer clients multiple types of body contouring treatments, including the following:
Emsculpt Neo not only helps eliminate stubborn fat but also works to strengthen underlying muscles at the same time. This advanced body sculpting device works by emitting radiofrequency (RF) and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energies simultaneously. The RF energy quickly heats the skin and tissue, warming the muscles. As it does this, HIFEM stimulation strengthens the muscles.
Your brain limits muscle contractions. However, HIFEM energy bypasses the brain, stimulating muscles directly and allowing for even more intense muscle contractions. For this reason, clients experience more impressive, faster results than those achieved with regular workouts.
While muscles contract and strengthen, the heat from the machine also kills fat cells. In the weeks after treatment, the body works to naturally eliminate these cells.
Vanquish by BTL
Vanquish by BTL focuses on fat reduction. The machine uses radiofrequency technology to target and destroy fat cells. The body then excretes the destroyed cells. This non-invasive body contouring treatment works well for clients who wish to eliminate fat, as it works to reveal underlying muscle tone and create natural curves.
Evolve by InMode
Evolve by InMode is a unique, versatile body sculpting platform. One machine can help eliminate fat, build and tone muscle, and tighten the skin, depending on which mode you select: Evolve Tite, Evolve Tone, or Evolve Transform. The platform uses advanced technology and RF energy to help you reach your aesthetic goals with no downtime.
Benefits of Body Contouring

- Quick, non-invasive treatments
- Non-surgical option
- Relaxing treatment sessions
- No downtime
- Natural-looking, long-lasting results
- Improved body curves
Choosing body contouring treatments can give you the boost you need to look and feel great.
What to Expect During Your Body Contouring Treatment
Your exact experience depends on the treatment you opt for. However, regardless of the type of body contouring treatment, you can expect a quick appointment in a relaxing setting.
Before starting your treatment, we prep the skin in the target areas and carefully place the paddles. Then, we’ll program the platform and begin your treatment. During your treatment, you can sit back and relax while the machine does all the work for you. Treatment times vary depending on which areas we are targeting, but usually last between 15 minutes and one hour.
After your body sculpting session is complete, the skin may be a little warm and red, but this will likely go away within a few hours. You’re free to continue about your day, as there is no downtime after body contouring.
Results from Non-Surgical Body Contouring
Results from body contouring treatments take some time to see. This is because of the way these treatments work. During your session, the platform works to target and destroy fat cells. After your treatment is complete, the work continues. Your body transports these dead fat cells and works to remove them from the body entirely. This process can take several weeks.
You’ll likely require multiple treatments to achieve the most favorable result. A few weeks after your final session, you’ll be able to enjoy your more sculpted figure.
Results from body contouring are long-lasting, as fat cells do not regenerate after they’ve been destroyed. However, we highly recommend a healthy diet and an active lifestyle to make the most out of your final results.
How Many Body Contouring Treatments Do I Need?
During your consultation, we’ll make recommendations regarding which treatment would be best for you and how many sessions you’d need for optimal results. Generally, clients schedule one to six treatments, depending on the target areas, desired results, and chosen treatment method.
