KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine which, when injected into the area below the chin (“submental fat”), can improve the appearance of what is commonly called the “double chin” by permanently destroying those fat cells. Kybella treatment typically requires a minimum of two injectable body contouring treatments and has minimum downtime.
InMode BodyFX uses non-invasive radiofrequency heat, along with gentle vacuum pressure, for effective fat reduction via a process called “apoptosis.” This heat also stimulates the production of new collagen, causing the skin to contract and tighten, shaping the body. BodyFx can also be used in areas such as the back of the thighs to improve the appearance of cellulite.
Syneron Candela UltraShape Power is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment using acoustic waves of focused ultrasonic energy to selectively target subcutaneous fat in areas such as the abdomen and flanks. Because UltraShape Power’s energy is transmitted in pulses, temperature elevation is controlled, making this treatment virtually pain-free.
ThermiTight® (using ThermiRF) is a skin tightening procedure in which a tiny probe is inserted under the skin and used to gently heat specific tissues to a therapeutic temperature, causing the skin to contract and tighten in as little as one treatment. ThermiTight can be used for fat reduction in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and under the chin.
Zeltiq CoolSculpting utilizes a process called cryolipolysis to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and more with no surgery and no downtime. This body contouring procedure can safely and effectively provide fat reduction in treated areas by roughly 20% to 25% per treatment, and has recently been FDA-approved for use on the arms!
The Zimmer ZWave enhances fat reduction when performed following a CoolSculpting procedure at our Nashville office through the use of high energy radial shockwaves, helping to improve blood circulation and stimulate collagen regeneration while significantly improving the skin’s firmness and elasticity.

Alma Accent combines unique cold Ultrasound with RF technology. Alma Accent delivers great results for fat reduction as well as skin laxity. A non-invasive treatment with no adverse event and maximum efficacy, the Accent combines numerous technologies in addition to shear waves and UniPolar RF. Selective ultrasound technology only breaks down the fat cells without causing damage to surrounding tissue. Most patients will notice some result even after one body contouring radiofrequency treatment and the fat will be removed from the body through its lymphatic system.
BTL Exilis Elite is an advanced technology for body shaping, skin tightening and facial rejuvenation using a layering technique. Layering simply means that energy is delivered to the various depths in the tissue. Changing the cooling during the body contouring treatment allows you to treat deep tissue all the way up to the superficial layer without damage.
EndyMed 3Deep offers a wide range of available treatments options, including skin rejuvenation, tightening and body contouring, wrinkle reduction, texture improvement, acne and acne scar reduction, stretch mark reduction, cellulite and fat reduction, fractional resurfacing and RF microneedling, while delivering the most effective results, safely, and with little to no downtime.
Inmode Forma technology is for the treatment of wrinkles. Forma stimulates new collagen and improves the skin’s elasticity for long-lasting results. The radio frequency current flows between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience, without concerns of hot spots or undertreatment. Built-in temperature controls allow for the attainment of skin temperatures during this subtle body contouring treatment. Forma also has the ability treat Nashville patients for prolonged exposure at therapeutic temperatures, which can be reached quickly and uniformly.
Inmode FormaPlus, like the Forma, this technology improves the skin’s elasticity but utilizes a larger handpiece for the treatment of body vs. the face.
Syneron-Candela VelaShape III combines IR (infrared), bi-polar RF (radiofrequency) and vacuum to precisely heat the tissue up to 3mm and 15mm depth respectively. VelaShape is ideal for fat reduction, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction.
- ThermiSmooth (using ThermiRF): reduces lines around mouth and eyes
- ThermiTight (using ThermiRF): back, submental fullness, arms, abdomen, legs
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy, delivered deep into the skin’s foundational layer, to stimulate the production of new collagen. Ultherapy is the only skin tightening procedure FDA-cleared to lift the skin of the neck, chin, and above the eyebrow, and has now been cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy is non-invasive and requires no downtime.
Silhouette InstaLift is a simple, in-office procedure which uses dissolvable sutures with bidirectional cones to lift the deeper layers of your skin, re-contouring your face and giving you a more youthful appearance. Over time, these sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body, while stimulating the production of collagen. The Instalift procedure typically takes approximately 45 minutes to complete, with minimal downtime and immediate results lasting up to two years.
