Top 3 Things You Should Do For Body Contouring Aftercare

If you have invested time, energy, and money into a body contouring treatment to get the body of your dreams, there are things you can do after your body contouring procedure to ensure the most optimal results, as body contouring aftercare is an important part of your procedure. 

At Coastal Aesthetics, we recommend to all clients who have undergone truSculpt and Accent Prime body contouring the top 3 things they can do during their aftercare to maximize the benefits and maintain their new, sleek figure.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a noninvasive and painless way to improve the look of aging, sagging skin and renew skin‘s youthful appearance. Contouring treatments can slim down “stubborn” areas resistant to exercise and weight loss, giving you the sleek shape you desire. Two effective body contouring options at Coastal Aesthetics are Accent Prime and truSculpt Flex.

Accent Prime For Body Contouring

Accent Prime is an advanced body contouring and skin tightening system featuring Alma’s patented unipolar technology. It uses radiofrequency and ultrasound heating to penetrate the skin, fat, and tissue at a controlled depth. Accent Prime can safely reach the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis for custom contouring.

This patented combination of longitudinal and transverse ultrasound wave technology results in acoustic pressure. This is achieved with the ultrasound waves emitted by the treatment. This pressure breaks down the targeted fat cell membranes and destroys the cell. Then, the cells are naturally flushed from the body through the lymphatic system in the weeks following treatment.

  • Face Contouring

Accent Prime can be safely used on the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten loose skin and eliminate fat by increasing collagen fibers, and rebuilding the skin.

  • Submental Contouring

This part of the body is known as a double chin. Accent Prime can treat and improve sagging skin under the chin by reducing and sculpting excess fat below the jaw.

  • Arms and Back

Accent Prime can help to significantly slim these common problem areas by toning, lifting, and treating sagging skin.

  • Abdominal Area and Stomach

The abdominal area and stomach are especially problematic when it comes to the accumulation of fatty tissue, significantly reducing circumferential weight and tightening loose skin.

  • Legs, Buttocks, and Thighs

Accent Prime works well on the lower body because it can restore a smoother, more taut appearance and ease the bumpy appearance of cellulite.

Body Contouring with truSculpt flex

TruSculpt flex is an innovative muscle-stimulating device with several small handpieces that utilize advanced body contouring technology. Targeting specific muscle groups offers personalized treatment based on your fitness level, shape, and goals.

truSculpt flex is a noninvasive and painless way to contour and sculpt the body to improve the look of aging, sagging skin and renew the skin‘s youthful appearance. This procedure stimulates muscle contractions using multi-directional electrical stimulation (MDS). The electrical signals result in full muscle contractions similar to physical exercise that ultimately increase muscle mass, giving target areas a leaner, more youthful appearance.

What sets truSculpt flex apart from similar body contouring methods is that it provides better coverage, allowing up to eight areas to be treated simultaneously compared to two areas in electromagnetic stimulation treatments.

How Does truSculpt Flex Work?

The procedure relies upon three optimal modes for body contouring results. Think of the first mode as a warmup, where the device gently stretches your muscles with a twisting motion, helping to build muscle tolerance to contractions. The second mode is where the toning begins. In this mode, truSculpt Flex contracts your muscles to exhaustion, just like if you were at the gym.

For ultimate body contouring results, the final mode sculpts the muscles with a series of deep, fast contractions that increase basal metabolic rate (BMI), which assists in accelerated muscle growth.

Top 3 Things To Do For Body Contouring Aftercare

Non-surgical body contouring treatments with laser technology are an effective way to achieve a toned and sculpted physique. However, it is important to follow proper body contouring aftercare instructions to ensure the best results:

Follow a Healthy Diet and Exercise Plan

While body contouring can help eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and improve muscle tone, it is not a substitute for healthy lifestyle habits. Eating a balanced diet and engaging in regular exercise can help maintain your new physique and improve your overall health.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is vital for overall health, but it can also play a key role in maintaining the results of your body contouring treatment. Hydration helps flush toxins from the body and can also improve skin elasticity, further enhancing the appearance of a toned, sculpted physique. Drink at least eight glasses of water daily and add hydrating foods like fruits and vegetables to your diet.

Follow Aftercare Instructions

After undergoing a body contouring treatment, it is important to follow aftercare instructions carefully. This may include avoiding certain activities to rest the muscles as they rebuild.

More Ways To Maximize Your Body Contouring Results

  • Alcohol and caffeine can dehydrate the body and interfere with the healing process. Avoid consuming these substances for at least 24-48 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24-48 hours after treatment. After that, you can gradually resume your regular exercise routine as tolerated.
  • Gentle massage can help improve lymphatic drainage and reduce swelling.
  • Eat plenty of protein since it helps build healthy muscle.
  • There’s no recovery or downtime with truSculpt Flex, but your body will feel similar to how it feels after an intense physical workout. Get sufficient rest to give your muscles time to heal.
  • Do not do an intense physical workout 24 hours before your truSculpt Flex session, and avoid training the treated muscle group 48 hours after to prevent overstraining.


What Are The Benefits of Laser Body Contouring?

The main benefits of body contouring include more youthful, firmer skin and improved body shape due to increased muscle tone and mass. Tighter skin lends itself to an overall firmer, more fit appearance, especially in stubborn areas that are hard to target with an exercise regimen alone.

What Are The Target Areas For Body Contouring?

Popular target areas for body contouring and sculpting treatments include the abdomen, obliques, buttocks, and legs. You can also treat areas like under the chin, upper arms, and the inner and outer thighs.

How Many Treatment Sessions Do I Need?

Building muscle is not instantaneous and generally takes most patients six sessions spaced 1-2 weeks apart to achieve desired results. Age, sex, diet, and genetics can all affect how quickly you experience muscle growth.
