Non-surgical body contouring treatments are incredible options to address all of your aesthetic concerns. These treatments can get rid of unwanted fat, smooth out the appearance of cellulite, tighten loose skin, and visibly reduce sun damage. At Wellskin Med Spa in Dallas, TX, we offer several highly effective treatment options so you can look your best and feel more confident about your appearance.
How Does Body Contouring Work?
Non-surgical body contouring treatments work by using advanced technology to gradually improve your aesthetic concerns. These treatments cannot help you lose a significant amount of weight, but they can help you with the final steps of your weight loss journey. Some treatments can eliminate the final inches of unwanted fat, while other treatments can tighten loose skin on areas of the body where you have lost weight. Many of these treatments can also be used for anti-aging purposes.
CoolSculpting is a unique treatment that freezes unwanted fat off your body. This treatment is recommended for patients who are struggling to lose stubborn pockets of fat through diet and exercise alone. On average, you can lose up to 24% of your body fat in any given treatment area. The advantages of this treatment are that it can eliminate fat without invasive surgical techniques or prolonged downtime.
Cellulite does not always respond to toning exercises, so using an advanced treatment like Reaction is an ideal treatment. Reaction by Viora uses radiofrequency energy to melt minor fat deposits, stimulate collagen production, and noticeably tighten skin for a smooth, supple appearance.
If you have concerns about skin laxity in any area of the body, then the Pellevé system may be a good option for you. This radiofrequency treatment increases the production of collagen deep within the sub-dermal tissues of your skin. As natural collagen matures, your skin will appear noticeably smoother and tighter. Many patients can also enjoy a brighter complexion.
If your age-related concerns are a combination of skin laxity and sun damage, then the SkinTyte system is an excellent option. This treatment uses BBL energy to gently heat the underlying layers of your skin. This infrared light can stimulate the production of collagen, get rid of red blood vessels, and erase dark spots caused by sun damage. Pigmented lesions can also be addressed with this treatment.
ZWave is a treatment that can be used to tighten loose skin and improve collagen formation at the same time. This treatment uses shockwave energy to stimulate lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. The shockwave energy is designed to radiate radially to improve the effectiveness of the treatment. The result of this treatment is tighter, firmer, and more elastic skin.
Finally, the Plasma Pen can address visible signs of aging on the body. Dark spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, sagging skin, and uneven skin texture can all be addressed by this highly effective treatment. Most patients will only need a single treatment to enjoy smoother and firmer skin.
Which Treatment Is Ideal for You?
Selecting the right body contouring treatment for you will depend on your aesthetic goals. A treatment like CoolSculpting is ideal if you want to reduce unwanted fat on your body, while a treatment like SkinTyte is more appropriate if your goal is to erase sun damage. To determine which treatment is ideal for your aesthetic concerns, you will need to have a consultation appointment.
During your consultation, information about your health conditions, medications you are taking, and your appearance goals will all be considered. Some treatments may be ruled out as an option because of your skin tone or skin type, while others may not be right for you because you have certain preexisting conditions. It may even be the case that multiple non-surgical treatments are recommended to help you achieve your goals.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Some treatments, such as the Plasma Pen, can produce results in as little as one treatment. Other contouring and skin tightening treatments may require multiple appointments over the course of several months to reach optimal results. For CoolSculpting, you may need one to three treatments per treatment area, while Reaction may require four to eight appointments to restore the smoothness of your skin.
Pellevé will often require at least two to four initial treatments to improve your skin concerns, although additional treatments may be necessary if your skin needs additional stimulation for collagen formation. Patients using SkinTyte may need three to five treatments for optimal results. ZWave may produce results in two to three appointments, although some patients may need up to six to 10 appointments.
How Long Will Results Last?
Usually, the results of these treatments can last for several months or years. CoolSculpting results may last a lifetime as long as you maintain a healthy body weight. Reaction, ZWave, and Pellevé results may last for several months to a year. Plasma Pen can produce results that last for three years, while SkinTyte results may last up to two years.
What Are the Benefits of These Treatments?
These treatments are non-surgical, which ultimately means that they are very low risk when compared to invasive cosmetic surgery. These treatments are unlikely to cause scarring, which may be a benefit for some patients. These treatments will also not require extensive downtime, so you can go back to your daily routine immediately. You will only need to follow the minimum aftercare instructions for a few days.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for these treatments include patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity and patients who are within the range of a healthy body weight. You may not be able to use these treatments if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. You may not be eligible for some treatments if you have certain medical conditions.
