Body Contouring Q&A
What is body contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring refers to procedures that either tighten your skin or reduce fat cells in targeted areas to give you a figure that looks slimmer or tighter.
While these procedures can’t offer the drastic results of liposuction, they can help you refine your body shape by targeting features that you can’t change easily with natural weight loss or hitting the gym.
Using the advanced body contouring procedures at Novo Wellness, you can target the fat or skin laxity on your:
- Chin and neck
- Banana roll under your buttocks
In order to get the best results from body contouring, you should be at your goal weight or very close to reaching it. Even body contouring procedures that eliminate fat cells can’t make you lose any significant amount of weight because their primary intention is shaping or sculpting your natural contours.
What are my options for body contouring?
Novo Wellness offers two leading body contouring procedures. These two procedures use technology in different ways to create stunning results that look entirely natural.
CoolSculpting targets and destroys fat cells using extremely cold temperatures. Once the cells are destroyed, your body naturally flushes them out via the lymphatic system over the course of a few months.
You’ll probably need several 30-60-minute sessions to see ideal results. CoolSculpting treatments require little or no downtime.
Morpheus8 radiofrequency (RF) microneedling
Morpheus8 RF microneedling is a procedure that targets skin laxity rather than fat. A matrix of very fine needles penetrates your skin and emits RF waves into deep tissues within.
The result is improved collagen and elastin growth within your skin, which leads to skin tightening and firmness. For the best results, you might need several sessions.
How can I make my body contouring results last?
The results of either body contouring treatment are long-lasting because they permanently alter your skin or fat on a cellular level, which is also why both treatments result in very natural effects. Still, there are a few steps to take with each treatment in order to make your results last.
CoolSculpting permanently eliminates targeted fat cells, but you can still gain weight throughout your body and see the fat reappear. To keep enjoying your contoured figure, you should watch your diet and continue to exercise regularly.
Microneedling results in long-lasting natural collagen growth, but you can compromise your results by spending too much time in the sun after your treatments. You should avoid direct sunlight and use only gentle, high-quality products on your skin. You can also schedule maintenance Morpheus8 treatments as your skin’s natural aging process continues.
Body contouring can make a subtle yet noteworthy difference in the way you look, without the need for surgery. To set up a consultation for either treatment, call Novo Wellness or book online today.
