The Complete Guide to Body Sculpting

Complete Guide to Body Sculpting

We all want to look our best but even with a healthy lifestyle, it’s common to have a few problem areas that we’d like to improve. If your silhouette isn’t what you’d like it to be, body sculpting might be the perfect treatment for you. Many patients don’t know there is a safe, effective, and non-surgical body sculpting procedure that effectively and permanently destroys fat and will tighten the skin. Body sculpting can help remove stubborn fat and effectively resculpt those problem areas of the body including chin, arms, belly, love handles, saddle bags, thighs, and legs.

If you are unhappy with your body’s curves, call us today to set up your consultation. During your consultation we will discuss your body goals, expectations, and budget to make sure body sculpting is the right choice for you. 

What are common treatment areas for body sculpting?

Submental Contouring 

Also referred to as “double-chin” or “turkey neck”, Accent Prime can be used to treat sagging skin under the chin and TruSculpt iD is able to permanently destroy excess fat. Treatment is permanent, painless, non-invasive, and takes about 10-15 minutes. 

Arms and Back

As we age our skin can lose its natural tightness, especially to the arms. However, this sensitive tissue can now be tightened to create a leaner, more sculpted and youthful profile. The skin under the arms is notoriously difficult to maintain shape, even with healthy habits and working out. Accent Prime is able to help tone, lift, and treat this sagging skin and we can also permanently destroy excess fat while rebuilding skin-firming collagen fibers. 

Stomach and abdominal area

The stomach and abdominal areas are especially problematic and most of us would be happy to lose a little bit of extra fat in this area. Even with a healthy diet and exercise, excess fat can remain stubborn. Changes to lifestyle, weight, and stress can all contribute to increased stubborn stomach fat but Accent Prime can reduce circumferential weight significantly while contouring the body, reducing stretch marks, and tightening the skin. 

Legs, Buttocks, and Thighs

Your body is a temple and we love it! However, cellulite on this area of the body is common but that doesn’t mean it isn’t frustrating, especially when you practice regular exercise and maintain a healthy weight. Accent Prime uses radiofrequency energy to work under the skin to stimulate collagen fibers, thereby restoring a smooth, taut appearance, improving the bumpy or wavy appearance of cellulite. 

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Options

When diet and exercise are not enough to create your ideal body shape, it’s common for patients to explore their treatment options. Although there are undoubtedly successful surgical options for body sculpting, including liposuction and body lift procedures, these proven effective treatment options are also incredibly invasive and expensive. Surgery involves risk of  complications and typically requires lengthy recovery times, sometimes requiring activity and weight-bearing restrictions. 

This is why non-surgical options are growing in popularity and are available to specific providers who have had extensive training. We can now effectively destroy fat and tighten the skin without surgery or invasive and expensive treatments . Within a few brief, pain-free sessions, you’ll have noticeably less fat, tighter skin, and the silhouette you’ve been wanting. These clinically proven techniques are FDA-approved treatments and are considered safe and effective. Say goodbye to those stubborn pockets of fat once and for all, and call us today to set up your consultation. 

What are the best non-surgical body sculpting options?

Accent Prime

Accent Prime is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that uses advanced technologies of radiofrequency and ultrasound to achieve tighter skin, while improving cellulite and skin texture. This customizable treatment allows us to treat the neck, face, arms, belly, and legs in as little as 5-10 minutes, with absolutely zero downtime. The treatment feels like a warm hot stone massage and is performed by our trained medical nurses and Nurse Practitioner. You’re going to love your results. 

TruSculpt iD

TruSculpt iD is a breakthrough in RF technology that delivers deep heating to adipose tissue—resulting in non-invasive fat reduction. Most patients will achieve an average of 24% permanent fat loss with 1 treatment. TruSculpt iD also helps with body sculpting, contouring, and can have a temporary improvement to cellulite. This process is achieved by placing handpieces in specific treatment areas. Pricing is based on the number of handpieces used and the size of the treatment area. We are able to treat the chin (double-chin), arms, stomach, love handles, saddle bags, thighs, and legs. 

What are the procedures like?

Our body sculpting treatments are non-invasive with no downtime. TruSculpt iD takes 15 minutes for 1 session (up to 6 handpieces) and Accent Prime treatments range from 10-20 minutes. Both treatments are able to be performed on all skin types and year-round. 

Are the results permanent?

Once a fat cell has been destroyed, it will be removed by the body’s natural lymphatic systems and those individual fat cells will be permanently destroyed. New fat cells may be able to accumulate in the same problem areas over time with dramatic weight gain or changes in healthy living but don’t worry, we are able to retreat these areas and give you back your desired body shape. 

How many sessions are needed?

The number of sessions needed will depend on which body sculpting procedure you choose, your body chemistry, and your treatment goals. If you choose Accent Prime for skin tightening and cellulite, we recommend a series of 4-6 sessions for ideal results, depending on treatment area. We recommend maintenance sessions every 6-12 months or as needed. 

A customized treatment plan will be discussed with you during your consultation or initial treatment. 

If you choose TruSculpt iD for permanent fat loss, we recommend 1-2 treatments with optimal results being seen in 3 months. Results will depend on patient age, starting BMI, hydration status, and health. We recommend maintenance treatments as needed and secondary to weight and/or lifestyle changes.
