Feeling at ease and confident in your body can do wonders for your self-esteem. While a healthy and balanced diet and exercise routine are important for both your mental and physical health, sometimes there are certain concerns or places where you can’t quite tone or improve—no matter how hard you try 🙃
One of the best ways to improve specific areas of your figure is non-surgical body sculpting!
At Willow Med Spa, we offer a wide range of body sculpting services. Our providers have years of experience helping our clients feel more confident in themselves through aesthetic skin and body treatments. Body sculpting is on the rise as a popular type of treatment, and we’re here for it!
In this guide, we cover the basics of body sculpting, types of treatments and how they work, and frequently asked questions.
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting is a catch-all term for aesthetic procedures that help slim, tone, and improve different areas of the body. Body sculpting can help you reduce unwanted body fat, strengthen and tone specific muscles, and resurface your skin to improve texture like cellulite, age spots, and more.
The benefits of body sculpting
Many people would love the benefits of an anesthetic treatment, but the commitment and risks associated with surgery are deal-breakers. With body sculpting, these procedures are non-invasive, meaning there are no incisions, anesthesia, or lengthy recovery period to get transformative results!
You don’t have to carve out days or weeks of recovery with body sculpting! Most of our body sculpting services do not need any downtime. They are easy to work into your routine, so you get to enjoy the results without skipping a beat.
Increased body confidence
The biggest benefit of body sculpting for most people is the increased confidence in their body following their treatments. Stubborn areas of fat can cause you to feel limited in clothing choices, uncomfortable showing off your skin in front of others, and general feelings of insecurity. The results of body sculpting can help you feel better in all types of clothing, swimsuits, and more.
Types of body sculpting
Not all body sculpting treatments deliver the same results. Many of them focus on improving a particular type of condition, including fat reduction, muscle tone, skin laxity, and skin quality.
By far, CoolSculpting is one of the most well-known and popular body sculpting treatments. CoolSculpting is all about fat reduction; it actually freezes fat cells so they die off and are naturally eliminated as waste.
One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting is its versatility. We can use it on many areas of the body to reduce and eliminate stubborn fat cells!
- Muffin Top
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Inner and outer thigh fat
- Love handles
- Double chin
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared solution that safely and effectively eliminates fat cells using targeted freezing technology.
Once frozen, the fat cells will naturally process through your body’s lymphatic system within the months following your treatment, resulting in a trimmer, more contoured look and feel!
Ready to build muscle AND burn fat? Emsculpt Neo is for you, my friend!
This advanced body sculpting treatment uses electromagnetic technology targets to stimulate underlying muscles. This creates the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or sit-ups in just a 30-minute session on the abdomen!
Emsculpt Neo is one step further than its predecessor, Emsculpt. It combines this electromagnetic technology with radiofrequency to help burn fat as it stimulates muscle at the same time for fantastic results.
Like CoolSculpting, there is no downtime after an Emsculpt treatment session. You can get right back to your routine post-treatment, you may feel just a bit of muscle soreness from the treatment working its magic ✨
Many things can cause skin laxity, like weight loss, aging skin, excess sun exposure, and a breakdown of collagen. Skin tightening procedures are a form of body sculpting and we combine them with CoolSculpting or Emsculpt Neo for even better results.
Keep reading to learn about our favorite options for skin tightening, Profound and SkinTyte!
Profound is a skin laxity treatment that uses the technique of microneedling combined with radiofrequency. One of the primary causes of sagging skin is less collagen. Collagen is a protein responsible for the structure and bounce of your skin, so more collagen means firmer skin!
Profound combines microneedling and radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production deep within your skin—this can help improve loose skin, cellulite, and more.
Our other favorite skin laxity treatment in SkinTyte. The name, of course, speaks for itself; SkinTyte tightens and firms loose skin using laser technology.
By heating collagen deep beneath the surface, it delivers rapid pulses to promote contraction and trigger your body’s natural healing process. This improves fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and sagging skin.
Many of our clients like to combine skin rejuvenation with body sculpting for even further results! Skin rejuvenation can transform skin to reduce lines and wrinkles, age spots/sun spots, pigmentation concerns, acne, and more.
One of our most versatile skin treatments is BBL HERO. BBL, short for BroadBand Light, is a technology that uses light energy instead of lasers. The advantage of this form of skin rejuvenation is that it requires less downtime for recovery—sometimes none!
A study from Stanford University revealed that BBL can actually restore gene expression of aged skin to that of much younger skin. This differentiator speaks volumes about this treatment, and so do the results!
We can use BBL HERO on both the face and body to create a rejuvenated, youthful appearance by minimizing signs of aging and other skin concerns.
Some of the most popular body treatment areas with BBL HERO include:
What is Body Sculpting? | Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for body sculpting?
Ideal candidates for body sculpting are those at or near their ideal weight. It’s important to understand that body sculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Body sculpting helps you reduce fat, build muscle, and firm skin in specific areas that are difficult to improve through diet and exercise alone.
If you have areas of your body you’d like to refine with a non-invasive treatment and are near your ideal weight, you may be a great candidate for body sculpting.
Is body sculpting permanent?
For certain treatments like CoolSculpting, it will freeze away fat cells that can never return. That being said, body sculpting results can be permanent if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Many clients like to receive maintenance treatments as well to ensure long-lasting results.
Is body sculpting safe?
Yes! When done by an experienced professional with high-quality equipment, body sculpting is safe. These procedures are non-invasive and require no incisions or downtime, minimizing risk.
How many treatment sessions do I need?
How many treatment sessions you’ll need depends on a few factors such as your current condition, goals for treatment, and number of treatment areas. The best way to learn how many body sculpting treatments you’ll need is through an in-person consultation.
