Body Contouring: What Procedures are Available?

You have likely heard about the amazing results that people can experience after using body contouring procedures. You may be interested in getting rid of unwanted pockets of fat and slimming down your figure. However, you may not know what options are available, or you may feel overwhelmed when looking at all of the choices.

Non-surgical body contouring treatments are growing in popularity because they have the ability to kill fat cells without requiring incisions to be made. They rely on the body’s natural process of eliminating damaged cells. The results are usually not immediate; however, they tend to look very natural.

Our body contouring procedures can be used to remove fat, tighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. They may use radiofrequency energy, ultrasound energy, or some other technology to achieve results.

One body contouring procedure that we offer is UltraShape Power. This is a non-surgical body contouring option that uses pulsed ultrasound in order to remove fat cells in selected areas. It has been approved by the FDA. In addition to destroying fat cells, the treatment also increases blood circulation and activity in the lymphatic system in order to remove the fat that has been liquefied during the treatment.

Another non-surgical body contouring option is VelaShape. This is a body shaping treatment that combines radiofrequency energy, infrared light, and vacuum technology in order to heat the fat cells in a targeted area. The body will naturally remove the damaged fat cells. The treatment also provides the benefit of heating collagen in the skin and connective tissues. This stimulates the growth of more collagen, as well as elastin.

CoolSculpting® is yet another non-surgical option that calls on the power of cold to freeze and kill fat cells. The amazing thing about this option is that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than your skin and organs. So our technician bring certain areas of your body to a temperature where the fat cells can be destroyed, but everything else is left unharmed. It is a great way to get rid of body fat.

These are just a few of the options that are available for body contouring. You can learn more during a consultation with our team at Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville. Contact our office today to book your appointment. We look forward to speaking with you!
