At Willow Med Spa, we’re all about body positivity. Regardless of your natural shape or size, you deserve to feel confident in your body
However, if you feel self-conscious or have specific areas of concern, it can be difficult to focus on the things that matter—like spending quality time with your friends and family.
Rather than laboring for hours in the gym only to see minimal results, our body sculpting services in West Virginia can help you achieve a slim and contoured look to compliment your natural shape.
Our staff is dedicated to providing superior skin care services and education to men and women of all ages. We work with patients from West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and even Ohio to produce gorgeous body sculpting results that align with their timeline, budget, and lifestyle!

What is Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting is a process by which we can apply medical-grade technology to various parts of the body in order to slim and contour an area to a more optimal, natural shape. Body contouring is typically non-invasive, which means it does not involve a costly or time-consuming body surgery (like liposuction, tummy tuck, or mommy makeover).
Non-surgical body sculpting can look different depending on your goals, budget, timeline, and natural shape. For example, do you want to:
- Tone your muscles?
- Lose a stubborn pocket (or two) of fat?
- Contour a specific area?
- Tighten the skin?
- Smooth the appearance of cellulite?
Each of these goals can be accomplished by one or a combination of different medical body sculpting treatments. Therefore, it is not a “one size fits all” regimen. For example, some patients may think they need a muscle burning treatment, but may actually need to address skin laxity to attain the look they desire (or vice versa).
Who is a Candidate for Body Sculpting?
Age, genetics, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can all cause excess skin and fat accumulation. And these issues don’t just apply to women!
Body sculpting can be especially helpful for targeting areas of extra fat, loose skin, and cellulite in the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck, and chin.
That said, if you are looking for weight loss treatments (if you are more than 30 pounds overweight), some body sculpting treatments may not work for you. In general, body sculpting is best for those looking to target specific areas of stubborn fat or lost tone, rather than all-over body weight loss.
“Body sculpting can help you achieve fat loss, but not weight loss.”
It’s also important to understand that while body sculpting can be one of the fastest ways to lose fat cells permanently, your contoured results may not be permanent without proper diet and exercise.
Types of Body Sculpting Services in West Virginia
There are four main “buckets” or types of body sculpting treatments available at our medical spa in West Virginia:
- Cryolipolysis – Cold temperatures to target and reduce fat cells
- Radiofrequency – Heating the deeper layers of the dermis to produce a skin tightening effect
- Electromagnetic Waves – Energy targeted at the muscle to cause contractions similar to a gym workout
- Laser Therapy – Applying heat through laser technology to target and reduce/destroy specific cells that contribute to a less-than-ideal appearance
- Injectables – FDA-cleared materials injected into the dermis to eliminate or reduce fat cells or cellulite
We’ll go into detail about which non-surgical body sculpting treatments can address your specific goals below.
Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Services for Vacation Prep
You may only need one or two different types of body sculpting services based on your individual body and goals. You may even think about applying different body sculpting technology to different areas of the body to achieve the complete look you’re going for!
That said, here is a sample treatment plan that involves each of the body sculpting services available in West Virginia.
1. CoolSculpting Debulk
CoolSculpting swept the aesthetics world by storm after officially debuting in 2010. It was the first medical aesthetic treatment to administer permanent fat loss. Before CoolSculpting, the only way to contour an area was through diet and exercise; even then, fat cells were not removed permanently, only shrunk.
CoolSculpting addresses stubborn pockets of fat by applying an applicator to the target area, which freezes away fat cells, causing them to die and be naturally processed by the body—all without damage to the skin.
This fat loss treatment is both safe and effective, taking between 1 to 3 treatments to achieve your goals. You can CoolSculpt any of the following areas:
- Muffin Top
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Inner and outer thigh fat
- Love handles
- Double chin
This is typically the first step in a body sculpting regimen. That’s because with CoolSculpting, we can achieve a level of fat loss that may have been difficult to address through diet and exercise alone.
In most cases, CoolSculpting is permanent; its fat freezing technique completely eliminates the cells from the body so they cannot come back. That said, if you gain all-over weight in the future, it may also affect the previously CoolSculpted areas from surrounding expanding fat cells.
2. EMSCULPT NEO Tone & Burn Fat
After completing a CoolSculpting treatment, it’s often ideal to follow with EMSCULPT NEO. As the second generation of EMSCULPT technology, EMSCULPT NEO is FDA-cleared to both burn fat and build muscle. The treatment utilizes a combination of both radiofrequency heating to address fat and electromagnetic energy to target the underlying muscles in the following areas:
Essentially, it’s like doing about 20,000 crunches or squats without the gym time. That’s a win Most of our patients can expect to see results after a series of about 4 to 6 EMSCULPT NEO treatments with only minimal muscle soreness!
3. Profound Tighten
After losing fat and toning muscle, many of our patients find Profound helps to tighten and smooth the structure of the skin where it may feel loose or “sagging”.
Its versatile application covers concerns:
- Sagging jowls
- Loose or sagging skin under the neck
- Double chin
- Loose or sagging skin on the body
- & more
Profound allows us to help return a youthful elasticity to your newly sculpted treatment area!
(Psst… Looking for skin tightening for your face? That would be SkinTyte.)
4. BBL HERO Clarify
BBL technology isn’t just for Photofacials anymore (although it works pretty well for those, too ). The latest Sciton technology, BBL HERO™, is an advanced light treatment that works quickly over any part of the body to help reduce age spots (browns), redness, freckles, and other sun damage.
We can use BBL HERO on any part of the body where you’d like to improve your skin tone, texture, and quality. Get your glow on before you ever have to step outside this summer!
5. QWO Smooth
If those treatments aren’t enough to take your results over the top, you can also finally say goodbye to cellulite, too! Our newest treatment offering at Willow Med Spa & Salon is QWO, the first FDA-cleared injectable to treat moderate to severe cellulite.
6. KYBELLA Contour
Although we’re discussing body sculpting, we can’t help but bring up the amazing benefits of Kybella. While technically this is a double chin reduction, many of our patients find that Kybella is a great addition to their body contouring treatment plan to provide a wholly improved look from head to toe!
The Power of Combination Treatments
Our favorite part of offering a variety of body sculpting treatments is that we can custom design a treatment plan that works for your individual body! After an initial consultation to discuss your concerns and your aesthetic goals, we can help create a regimen that may combine two or more of the above treatments to accomplish those goals.
Body Sculpting Cost
The cost of your body sculpting services in West Virginia will depend on:
- Your specific concerns and goals
- The size of the treatment area(s)
- The number of treatment area(s) you’d like to address
- The number of treatments needed
That said, as body sculpting experts, Willow Med Spa is happy to custom tailor a treatment plan that works within your budget to help you achieve your dream body in time for a big event or vacation!
