It can be disheartening to put in the hard work by eating well and exercising only to find that your last stubborn area refuses to move, especially when you don’t want to consider surgery as an option. However, there are non surgical treatments available to help. Non surgical body sculpting, or body contouring, is a surgery-free treatment to reduce or remove stubborn fat from the body that appears resistant to diet and exercise.
This blog explains what body sculpting is and the benefits of non surgical body sculpting. To find out more or to schedule a consultation, contact our professional team at Glow Medispa today.
Non surgical body sculpting aims to redefine your appearance and give you the sculpted look of your dreams. This non-invasive treatment is convenient and can help you to achieve your body goals without surgery or invasive cosmetic procedures.
Non surgical body sculpting, or body contouring, comes with a large range of benefits such as:
1. Less chance of risk
More traditional options such as liposuction come with inherent risks due to being surgical in nature. Cutting and removing body fat requires anaesthesia and puts the body through stress, which can lead to post-surgery complications including infections, hernias, hypoglycaemia, and more. Non surgical body sculpting lessens the risk of such complications as it targets fat cells instead of stubborn tissue, leading to a reduced chance of side effects.
2. Easier recovery process
Non surgical body contouring allows you to continue living your lifestyle as usual thanks to its much easier recovery process when compared to other options. You won’t need to deal with taking care of wounds, and you won’t need long recovery periods that can last for weeks on end. Surgical operations require the body to repair its incisions, which non surgical body sculpting removes the need for. However, nothing is without some risk: Typical side effects of non surgical body contouring are generally mild and often consist of inflammation, muscle soreness, and mild redness that lasts for up to a day or two, similar to a sunburn.
3. Quick and easy appointments
Many body contouring sessions can be performed in 25 minutes to an hour, which is much faster than surgical procedures. Most of our treatments are 30 minutes in length. While the length of your appointment will vary depending on the size of the area you’re targeting, it will certainly take less time than its surgical counterpart.
Additionally, you don’t need to prepare for surgery and arrange transport to and from your appointment, saving you both time and stress. Quick and easy appointments are easy to fit into everyday life, as they don’t require you to take long periods off work.
4. Lower costs
Non surgical procedures come at a lower cost than traditional plastic surgery or fat loss treatments as they are much less invasive and complex.
5. Long-term and targeted results
Non surgical body sculpting exclusively targets fat cells as opposed to surgical options which attempt to dissolve fatty tissue. As such, non surgical body contouring has a higher accuracy rating, and the effects remain visible for the long term.
6. Targets stubborn areas
Sometimes fat is simply stubborn, and no matter how much hard work you put in, it refuses to budge. Non surgical body contouring can handle these areas by targeting pockets such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and upper arms.
There are several methods of non surgical body contouring. At Glow Medispa we use:
1. Emsculpt Neo
This machine builds muscle while killing fat using two different modalities. These modalities are HIFEM (High Frequency Electromagnetic waves), which stimulates and strengthens muscles and destroys fat, and Radiofrequency, which kills fat cells with heat and can also slightly tighten the skin. The combination of these two modalities makes this one of the most effective body sculpting devices available.
2. Exilis Ultra
This combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound aims to tighten skin and kill fat, and can be used in conjunction with Emsculpt Neo. The Exilis Ultra heats the skin from the surface and also has a cooling function, allowing heat to get deep into the fat to both tighten skin and melt stubborn fat.
