Body contouring, or body sculpting, refers to procedures that help reduce stubborn body fat and shape the body.
Body sculpting is either surgical or non-surgical. Surgical procedures, such as liposuction, require anesthesia and long recovery times. Whereas non-surgical procedures are effective, safe non-invasive procedures to help reduce fat and build muscle.
The best part? There’s no downtime required!
Continue below for a summary of non-invasive methods that helps you reduce fat and build muscle to sculpt your body.
DIET AND EXERCISE
Are you looking to spend money on treatments? You can, but you still need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Diet and exercise maintenance:
- Boosts efficacy of treatments
- Lowers the number of treatments you need
- Reduces the overall cost
CRYOTHERAPY (COLD) DEVICE
Doctors have long known that cold can be used to destroy fat. Zeltiq CoolSculpting works by targeting and freezing fat cells without harming the surrounding cells. Fat cells die at lower temperatures while other cells do not. Freezing temperatures destroy the targeted fat cells, which are then eventually eliminated through your body’s natural system. The result is the permanent removal of those fat cells without ever having to undergo surgery.
Keep in mind that the best candidates for cryotherapy will already be at or close to their target weight. The number of treatments needed depends on how much fat you have. This technique is constantly improving, so visit this link to learn the most current information.
MUSCLE BUILDING DEVICE
Building muscle increases your metabolism, which helps burn fat more quickly. Muscle mass and muscle tissue burn more calories than body fat -- even when you're at rest. Unfortunately, physically inactive people can lose as much as three to five percent of their muscle mass each decade after age 30.
Even if you are active, you will still experience some muscle loss. Existing body contouring procedures have focused solely on the destruction of fat.
While Emsculpt®, created by BTL Aesthetics, is the first and only non-invasive treatment that burns fat and simultaneously builds muscle in both men and women. The non-invasive HIFEM® procedure induces powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions.
When exposed to strong contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt to such extreme conditions. It responds with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and sculpting your body. Emsculpt® is safe, painless, and effective. It requires zero-downtime, and patients can see results a few weeks after completing a series of four Emsculpt® appointments.
Best of all, benefits can continue to improve over six months to a year. For additional information on Emsculpt’s ability to burn fat and build muscle, visit a reputable medical office in your area to set up a consultation.
