There are always new and innovative cosmetic treatments coming out, ranging from those that combat the signs of ageing to those that improve the appearance of skin. Recently, there has been a lot of focus on body contouring, leading to the development of new-generation body contouring treatments. Though these treatments are unique, they all have the same goal – to contour, tighten and define the body in a non-invasive way.
If you are unhappy with your body, you are certainly not alone. Many people would like to improve their appearance in one way or another; some want to get rid of stubborn ‘love handles’, and others want to tone their arms. In this blog, we look at the body contouring treatments available to you and their key differences.
What Are New Generation Body Contouring Treatments?
There has been a lot of talk about body contouring lately, especially with summer right around the corner and everyone wanting to get bikini ready before the holiday season begins. You might have heard body contouring referred to as body sculpting, which involves improving your body’s appearance by creating a more taut, toned and contoured look. It’s popular among those who have recently lost weight or are unhappy with how their body changes as they age. Though there are surgical treatments available, we focus our attention on treatments that are non-invasive and non-surgical. This makes the entire process quicker and simpler, reducing the recovery time significantly. After a body contouring treatment, you can expect a more toned and defined appearance with smooth and contoured lines.
Our Most Popular Body Contouring Treatments
At The Body Work Clinic, we pride ourselves on offering a varied range of treatments, which is why we don’t simply provide one body contouring treatment. Instead, four key treatments help tone and contour various parts of the body. Which one you choose will depend on the area, the amount of contouring needed and your desired results.
- CoolSculpting – When many people think about body contouring treatments, they think about CoolSculpting Elite, which is available at The Body Work Clinic. CoolSculpting is an innovative, unique and impressive way of contouring various parts of the body. It works by freezing specific areas of unwanted fat in a non-invasive, non-surgical and effective manner. Cryolipolysis is the process of reducing the temperature of fat cells, and this is what CoolSculpting Elite centres around. By lowering the temperature of unwanted fat cells, they become damaged and destroyed and are then removed naturally by the body. Cryolipolysis can do this without damaging the surrounding cells and tissue; it only works on pockets of fat you want removed. Simply, the surrounding areas remain unharmed and untouched. Though there are a range of fat reduction treatments, CoolSculpting is unique because it doesn’t shrink the fat cells. Instead, it removes them from the body entirely, meaning that they aren’t there to grow or return in the future. As areas of unwanted fat are moved, the body looks more sculpted and contoured in all the right places.
- Exilis Ultra 360 – A significant part of body contouring is tightening the skin, especially if you have recently lost weight or are combatting the sagging that often comes with ageing. Using Exilis Ultra 360, it’s possible to improve the contour of your body using radiofrequency and ultrasound energy, which encourages collagen production and tightens the skin. Increased collagen reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and the skin’s surface is smoother. This can be undertaken on various parts of the body, including the face. You can choose to undergo Exilis Ultra 360 treatment with or without getting rid of fat cells, but doing so can boost results and create a more defined contour. Fat destruction maybe a desirable outcome on the body, however, it is not required on the face as it would cause an aesthetically unpleasing gaunt appearance.
- Ultherapy – Like Exilis Ultra 360, Ultherapy helps to contour the body by boosting collagen production. Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy causes thermal damage to the skin’s SMAS layer. This encourages the body to produce more collagen to repair itself, which helps tighten and smooth the skin’s surface. Though Ultherapy does not remove unwanted pockets of fat as some other body contouring treatments do, it helps to create a more toned appearance by tightening and smoothing the skin.
- EMsculpt – Like CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite, EMsculpt is a way of contouring the body, but it achieves this using a different process. EMsculpt aims to build muscle mass whilst simultaneously burning unwanted fat. It works similarly to going to the gym or exercising, but results are achieved quicker and with less input from you. EMsculpt can achieve the same results in one half-hour session as doing 20,000 crunches. Not only is EMsculpt quicker, but it’s a lot easier physically and mentally than spending hours working out. Though EMsculpt can be carried out without getting rid of unwanted body fat, this is a key part of the body contouring process. With EMsculpt, it’s possible to contour the body while increasing muscle mass, strength and definition.
