4 Key Nonsurgical Body Contouring Questions, Answered

Looking to sculpt your body without surgery? Nonsurgical body contouring might be the answer you’ve been searching for. With increasing nonsurgical fat reduction treatment options, you may have several questions about the various procedures and whether one is better.

In this blog post, we’ll provide details about the different fat reduction technologies, how long your results can last, if there are ways to extend the longevity of your results, and if you’re a good candidate for nonsurgical body contouring.

What Is Nonsurgical Body Contouring?

You have multiple options for nonsurgical body contouring treatments. That’s because devices use different types of energy to reduce fat and/or build muscle. You’ve probably heard about the “fat-freezing” procedure called CoolSculpting®, which claims to destroy fat cells with cold temperatures. Other options involve electromagnetic technology to stimulate muscle building or laser energy to melt fat cells.

At DermEffects, we combine truSculpt® iD and truSculpt® flex, a customized treatment that reduces fat and builds muscle using radiofrequency energy. You can learn more about why truSculpt is better than its competitors in an earlier blog post.

How Long Do Nonsurgical Body Contouring Results Last?

Just as the body contouring methods differ, so do the longevity of the results. All of the nonsurgical fat reduction and muscle toning treatments gradually produce results because it takes time for the non-invasive procedures to destroy fat cells and build muscle. The results typically peak at about 6 months after your final treatment. Fat cells destroyed by truSculpt treatments are flushed from the body through its lymphatic system and are gone for good.

Maintaining an active lifestyle with a healthy diet and exercise will help you indefinitely enjoy the slimmer, toned contours. It’s also important to stay hydrated, which supports your body’s natural detoxification process.

Can You Benefit From Body Contouring Treatments?

Nonsurgical body contouring treatments aren’t weight-loss procedures. To be an ideal candidate for truSculpt and similar treatments, you should be close to your ideal weight but have stubborn, localized fat pockets that persist despite your best efforts to reduce them.

You should also have realistic expectations about the results. Nonsurgical body contouring can enhance your body shape but won’t achieve the same dramatic results as surgery. Your skin should be elastic enough to “shrink to fit” your new contours. Nonsurgical body contouring isn’t a skin-tightening procedure.

How Do I Find Nonsurgical Body Contouring Near Me?

It’s essential to research providers who offer body contouring treatments before scheduling an appointment. Even though the treatments are nonsurgical, they still pose risks of complications if the provider isn’t fully qualified to perform the procedure. Besides Dr. Loo, a board-certified dermatologist, Cindy Kuprenas is a registered nurse who has been working with fat reduction and muscle toning technologies for several years.
