What is the body contouring procedure?

Body contouring procedure is a non-surgical, in office treatment that can shrink down unwanted, localized areas of fat as well as improve the appearance of cellulite.

How does it work?

The Body Contouring procedure combines the technology of VelaSmooth and Lipodissolve therapy.

Areas of unwanted fat and cellulite are first treated with a device called the VelaSmooth. This body contouring technology is FDA cleared and delivers radiofrequency and infrared light energy into the fat and cellulite. The combination of these energies stimulates the safe, localized breakdown of fat.

Lipodissolve therapy is the micro-injection of a fat dissolving product called sodium deoxycholate. This therapy adds an additional 30% reduction in fat over just Velasmooth technology alone. Our sterile sodium deoxycholate formula is manufactured by an FDA-approved compounding pharmacy.

Am I a good candidate for the body contouring procedure?

Any patients with diet and exercise resistant areas of unwanted fat should benefit from this body contouring program. Body contouring patients can be light or dark skinned, heavy or thin patients.

What can i expect?

This procedure is not a weight loss technique, but many patients, however, look and feel slimmer.

On average, the Body Contouring procedure produces a 2 to 4 inch circumferential reduction in abdominal area, and 1 to 2 inches in each thigh. The majority of patients achieve these results in about 3 sessions. A session can be done every 4 to 6 weeks. Up to two areas can be treated in one session.

Most patients achieve body contouring benefits and reduction in the circumferential measurement in treated areas, achieving smaller dress sizes.

The treatment of cellulite requires 8 to 12 sessions with about a 40% to 60% improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

Each body area can be treated in approximately 20 - 30 minutes and there is minimal to no discomfort. You may return to your normal daily activities immediately after treatment.

You will need to wear a light compression garment (Spanx) for one week.

There is over a 90% patient response rate to the Body Contouring procedure and an over 80% patient happiness score at the end of the program.

How long will my body contouring last?

As long as you maintain a consistent body weight after completing the body contouring program, the contour and fat-reduction improvements will last forever.

Cellulite unlike fat should be viewed as a chronic disease, like high blood pressure or diabetes and, as such, will require a maintenance cellulite "booster" treatment every 12 weeks.

Is the procedure safe?

Body contouring is very safe for all skin types and can even be done on tanned skin. There are no long-term health hazards from infrared light or RF energies. All treatments are carefully monitored for your care and comfort. The procedure is non-surgical, non-invasive and has no side effects. There is no downtime following treatments.

Maintenance treatments are not required, the fat that is lost is permanent. Results do vary from person to person. Results can be enhanced by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight (eat well and increase aerobic activity).

What areas can be treated?

Unwanted fat of the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, love-handles, bra line, arms, calves and chin are body regions that respond well to the body contouring program.
