Top 5 Reasons Why Patients Love Body Contouring

Imagine smoothing, tightening and shaping your body with a magic wand and no surgery is required. This is the concept of body contouring, a popular option for people wanting a slimmer, more toned silhouette. Instead of a “magic wand,” body contouring is done with safe, innovative and non-invasive devices. 

At Coastal Aesthetics, our patients love body contouring. Here, we explore the “Top 5 Reasons” why patients appreciate this rejuvenating treatment.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring (or body sculpting) is the term for cosmetic treatments used to create a firmer, more toned body hidden under fat or loose skin. Today’s non-surgical body contouring options are a painless way to improve the look of aging, sagging skin and renew skin‘s youthful appearance.

These nonsurgical procedures can slim areas on the body that are resistant to diet and exercise using radiofrequency or electrical muscle stimulation to target and eliminate stubborn fat deposits. By tightening the skin and enhancing muscle tone, the result is a more streamlined silhouette.

What Are The Top 5 Reasons for Body Contouring?

There are several reasons to choose body contouring treatments, and these are the top 5 reasons why our patients love it:

Enhances Body Confidence

At Coastal Aesthetics, we understand that feeling good about how you look can create a positive mindset, fostering a sense of empowerment and assurance in all aspects of life.

It can significantly boost self-confidence by addressing areas of concern like stubborn fat deposits or loose skin, resulting in a more sculpted and toned appearance.

Restores a Youthful Appearance

The frustration of aging, rigorous workouts and a disciplined diet without achieving desired physical appearance goals is a common and challenging experience.

Body contouring procedures, particularly those addressing sagging skin and wrinkles or stubborn fatty deposits, contribute to a more youthful, athletic appearance.

Post-Weight Loss Benefits

Dealing with loose skin can be emotionally challenging for our patients, as it may hinder the visual representation of the hard work and dedication put into major weight loss.

The procedures can help refine the body’s contours after weight loss without the need for surgery making it one of the “Top 5 Reasons” for body contouring.

Targeted Fat Reduction

For patients struggling with specific pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, body contouring offers targeted fat reduction. While body contouring will not get rid of cellulite, it can ease the look by enhancing muscle tone.

Patients love it because it is a non-invasive treatment that can permanently reduce fat cells in specific areas, enhancing overall body shape.

Muscle Toning and Definition

Body contouring serves as a versatile tool for refining and enhancing the physique, catering to the unique aesthetic goals of individuals, including those who are already dedicated to an active lifestyle.

Innovative treatments like truSculpt Flex focus on muscle sculpting through electrical muscle stimulation. This not only helps in toning muscles but also contributes to a more defined and athletic physique and is another reason our patients love body contouring.

How Does Body Contouring Work?

Different body contouring treatments address different types of concerns. While Accent Prime, truSculpt ID, and truSculpt Flex all serve as effective body contouring solutions, each is suited for a specific area of concern.

During your consultation at Coastal Aesthetics, we will assess your target areas and help you decide which treatment is right for you. Here is a general overview of treatments and the areas they target:

Accent Prime

Accent Prime is an advanced body sculpting and skin tightening system that uses radiofrequency and ultrasound heating to penetrate skin, fat, and tissue at a controlled depth. Accent Prime is able to safely reach the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis for custom contouring.

Utilizing a patented blend of longitudinal and transverse ultrasound waves, this technology generates acoustic pressure. These waves break down targeted fat cell membranes, leading to cell destruction. The body naturally eliminates unwanted cells through the lymphatic system in the weeks post-treatment.

Which Parts of The Body Can Be Contoured with Accent Prime?

  • Face – Accent Prime can be safely used on the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten loose skin and eliminate fat.
  • Submental Contouring – Also known as a double chin, Accent Prime can treat and improve sagging skin and sculpt excess fat below the jaw.
  • Arms and Back – Accent Prime can help to significantly slim this common problem area by toning, lifting and treating sagging skin. 
  • Abdominal Area and Stomach – A problem area when it comes to the accumulation of fatty tissue, Accent Prime can significantly reduce circumferential weight while sculpting the body.
  • Legs, Buttocks and Thighs – For the lower body, Accent Prime contours legs, thighs and buttock, while easing the bumpy appearance of cellulite and our patients love their new look.

TruSculpt ID

TruSculpt ID is a non-invasive, FDA-approved body sculpting technology designed to reduce stubborn fat deposits and improve the overall contour of various body areas by utilizing innovative monopolar radiofrequency (RF) technology. The treatment delivers deep heating to the fatty tissue, destroying fat cells (by about 24%) and tightening the skin for a slimmer, more toned appearance.

Which Parts of The Body Can Be Contoured with truSculpt ID?

  • Abdomen and Flanks – TruSculpt iD is ideal for targeted body contouring, effectively reducing excess fat in the abdomen and flanks. 
  • Double Chin – Fat accumulation under the chin is a cosmetic concern for many of our patients and one of the reasons they seek body contouring wanting a more defined jawline.
  • Upper Arms – TruSculpt iD reduces excess fat in the upper arms that can be hard to improve with diet and exercise.
  • Legs – Another “Top 5 Reason” patients love body contouring is it can sculpt both the inner and outer thighs. While it can improve the appearance of certain areas, it may not specifically eliminate cellulite.
  • Neck – Tightening neck skin is challenging due to the area’s unique characteristics, but truSculpt ID can be safely used to ease the look of aging skin.

TruSculpt Flex

TruSculpt Flex works by stimulating muscle contractions using painless multi-directional electrical stimulation (MDS). The energy signals result in full muscle contractions that are more vigorous than you can achieve with physical exercise. Ultimately, this increases muscle mass for a leaner, more toned, youthful appearance. It can treat up to 8 areas simultaneously.


Why Should I Do Body Contouring?

Body contouring offers a non-invasive or minimally invasive way to sculpt and reshape the body, targeting stubborn fat deposits, tightening skin, and enhancing muscle tone. It provides an effective solution for achieving desired aesthetic goals.

Am I A Good Candidate for Body Contouring?

Ideal candidates for body contouring are individuals seeking to address specific concerns such as localized fat deposits, loose skin, or muscle definition. They may have areas resistant to traditional methods despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

The frequency of body contouring sessions varies based on individual goals and the specific procedure used. While some treatments may require multiple sessions for optimal results, others may offer noticeable improvements after a single session.
