Body Contouring: The Ultimate Guide to a Smoother Shape
Most of us know at least a little something about surgical body contouring procedures like liposuction or skin removal, but you may not be as familiar with the concept of nonsurgical body contouring. In this blog, the experienced aesthetic team at medspa810 in Scottsdale, AZ provides a useful guide on what you need to know about nonsurgical body contouring, including answers to some of the most common questions patients have about this popular and exciting treatment.
What is nonsurgical body contouring?
Nonsurgical body contouring is a type of aesthetic treatment that can be used to sculpt, reshape, and enhance a person’s figure without the need for anesthesia, incisions, scarring, or an extended recovery period. In most cases, nonsurgical body contouring is noninvasive and does not require any downtime. At medspa810, we are proud to perform nonsurgical body contouring using the state-of-the-art EvolveX system. With EvolveX nonsurgical body contouring, patients can target stubborn fat and loose skin in common problem areas — like the abdomen, buttocks, flanks, and thighs — and achieve a trimmer, firmer physique overall.
How does nonsurgical body contouring work?
During your nonsurgical body contouring treatment with EvolveX, you’ll lie back and relax while the system’s applicators are placed on your desired treatment area. Using a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and magnetic pulsed therapy, EvolveX removes fat cells and triggers the production of collagen to encourage a slimmer, smoother, more lifted appearance over time.
How long does it take nonsurgical body contouring to work?
Following your EvolveX treatment session, you may notice mild swelling, redness, or tenderness at the treatment sites. These symptoms should resolve within a few days, with most patients able to return to work, school, and other activities almost immediately after their appointment or the following day. Because it takes time for the body to resorb destroyed fat cells and to produce new, healthy collagen fibers, it can take several months for the full effects of nonsurgical body contouring to be visible.
How long do nonsurgical body contouring results last?
When fat cells are treated with EvolveX nonsurgical body contouring, they will not return. Still, patients should keep in mind that some fat cells will remain in the areas that were treated, and these cells can become enlarged — which translates to added inches — with weight gain. For this reason, patients should be dedicated to maintaining a stable, healthy weight after nonsurgical body contouring.
Who is a candidate for nonsurgical body contouring?
Because nonsurgical body contouring is noninvasive and does not require anesthesia or medications, most healthy people can safely undergo treatment. Generally speaking, ideal candidates for nonsurgical body contouring are:
- Healthy overall
- At or near their goal weight
- Have stubborn areas of fatty tissue and/or mild skin laxity
- Committed to a regular diet and exercise regimen
In cases where patients have more extensive skin laxity and/or a large amount of weight to lose, nonsurgical body contouring may not be an effective solution. During your initial consultation for nonsurgical body contouring at medspa810, we will discuss your concerns and goals and help determine whether EvolveX is right for you.
