Minimally- and non-invasive body contouring is a highly sought after treatment and it’s clear why — you can reach your body composition goals without having to go under anesthesia or endure the grueling recovery of other weight loss surgeries out there.
Here at Aqua Vitality, we offer a variety of body contouring treatment options in order to transform your body and allow you to reach your goals. Whether you’re looking to appear more toned or eliminate stubborn fat in target areas, continue reading to find out which body contouring treatment is best for you to achieve your ideal figure!
Sculpsure is a body contouring system that reduces fat in stubborn areas such as the abdomen, love handles, or thighs. During the procedure, 24% of treated fat cells are destroyed, all without a single incision. If you are having difficulty losing fat in certain areas even with diet and exercise, then Sculpsure may be the perfect solution.
This treatment works by delivering laser light through the top layers of skin to heat up and damage the structural integrity of fat cells, while simultaneously cooling the skin for comfort. Over the next 12 weeks after treatment, the damaged fat cells are eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system and are permanently unable to regenerate.
During treatment, you may experience a tingling sensation that some patients describe as “waves” of warmth and coolness. The treatment only lasts about 25 minutes, so you will be in and out in no time!
Sculpsure doesn’t require any downtime, allowing you to receive the treatment during your lunch hour or in between meetings – whenever is most convenient for you! Most patients are able to see some changes immediately, however, optimal results will be visible roughly 12 weeks post-treatment.
If you are struggling with stubborn areas that seem resistant to weight loss, then you may want to try Velashape body contouring to achieve a toned look. The FDA-approved system is able to provide a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite, as well as thigh and abdominal circumferences. Treatment provides a well-shaped figure along with improved skin texture and smoothness.
The Velashape technology works by combining infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy, and vacuum, thus causing a deep heating of the fat cells, the surrounding connective tissue, and dermal collagen fibers. This heating and vacuum results in increased collagen and elastin for localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and improved skin texture.
It is important to note that Velashape is NOT a weight loss solution and is recommended for patients with a BMI under 30 for optimal results.
Most patients require three treatments in order to achieve the ideal contoured figure. Velashape is generally pain-free, and the procedure is often described as feeling similar to a warm deep-tissue massage. Some redness may appear briefly after treatment, however, no downtime is required, making Velashape a convenient body contouring solution.
Subcutaneous fat, which is the visible, textured fat directly under the skin, can be especially hard to reduce with diet and exercise alone. The good news is Ultrashape is able to destroy this fat without causing harm to the surrounding tissue, nerves, or muscle.
Unlike Sculpsure and Velashape, this treatment does not use a heating or freezing mechanism but instead utilizes gentle ultrasound technology to deliver pulses of energy to the targeted areas. This energy destroys the walls of fat cells in your body and releases them in the form of triglycerides, which are then processed and naturally eliminated from the body via the liver.
Three sessions of Ultrashape spaced two weeks apart are recommended for optimal results. The sessions require no downtime and do not leave any redness or unwanted marks on the skin. It is virtually pain-free and patients report that the treatment feels comfortable.
Results can be visible as soon as two weeks after treatment and will continue to appear as the fat cells are eliminated from the body. The destroyed cells will not return to the treated area, so you can expect long-lasting results if you choose to receive Ultrashape.
No matter how fit you are, cellulite can appear on virtually any body type. In fact, 90% of women experience these pesky dimples, which are commonly found on the thighs, lower abdomen, and arms. Luckily, PelleFirm cellulite treatment can temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite and leave you with smooth, sexy skin.
Pellefirm uses radio-frequency energy and massage to deeply heat tissues, thus facilitating the movement of fluids, which are then naturally eliminated by the lymphatic system. This stimulates collagen production and the tightening of the epidermis, resulting in smoother skin texture.
Patients have compared the quick procedure to a relaxing hot stone massage. Slight redness may occur after treatment but will quickly subside. Pellefirm is a great option for those looking to achieve a toned, flawless look but don’t necessarily need fat reduction.
