body contouring


Body contouring refers to any cosmetic procedure that sculpts the body, whether changing or enhancing the shape of the body, regardless of whether the procedure is surgical or non-invasive. Plenty of men and women have undergone body contouring treatments in their quest to rid themselves of stubborn fat and tighten up loose skin.


Liposuction is by far the most well-known surgical body contouring procedure. Facelifts, tummy tucks, and any other procedure that seeks to tighten up or eliminate excess skin also qualifies. Surgical body contouring certainly works, but many potential patients prefer to consider alternative treatments since surgical treatments are so invasive and involved. General anesthesia and scalpels are employed, you’re left with stitches and scars, it takes time to recover. Not to mention, there are a lot of extra elements that come into play when you participate in a cosmetic surgery.

Revolutionary advances in non-invasive procedures have caused the cosmetic industry to change dramatically, as now non-surgical alternatives are available and prove to be effective for many patients. CoolSculpting is easily the most popular of the non-invasive fat reduction treatment options. CoolSculpting allows healthy adults to choose a non-invasive option that’s comparable to liposuction for reducing fat bulges. In addition, new thermal procedures like Venus Freeze Skin Tightening have expanded the skin-tightening market, and offer a non-invasive, painless alternative to facelifts.


The field of non-invasive fat reduction treatments is wide. A number of treatments use thermal energy from lasers or radiofrequency waves to target and reduce fat. CoolSculpting is distinct from these, as it’s the only FDA-approved fat reduction procedure that involves cooling technology that can safely freeze fat away. CoolSculpting is the most-utilized non-surgical body contouring treatment in the world. It relies on a procedure called cryolipolysis. When subcutaneous fat cells are treated with temperatures that are just cold enough to freeze them, but warm enough to avoid damaging surrounding skin, the fat cells rupture and die. Scientific studies have shown that after just one CoolSculpting treatment, stubborn fat is reduced by up to 25%.¹

What Areas Can I Contour with Cool Sculpting?

CoolSculpting accurately treats trouble areas like belly fat, upper arm fat, love handles, double chins, thigh fat, double chins and more. Fat freezing results, as demonstrated in Cool Sculpting before and after images, have a natural appearance, and frozen fat cells are flushed out of the body by natural processes and cannot grow back. This means that CoolSculpting’s results are long lasting and look great.¹


Venus Freeze is one of the finest non-invasive skin tightening treatments. The FDA has cleared it for addressing skin laxity on trouble spots like the face, stomach, neck, or arms. Venus Freeze doesn’t hurt and it is safe for every skin type. You don’t have to spend any time recovering from it, and the procedure can be performed in under an hour.

Venus Freeze uses both Multipolar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields. Both of these penetrate the surface layer of skin to heat the layers beneath, where structural proteins are. The thermal energy generated begins a skin rejuvenation process, building up fibers and starting collagen and elastin production, which tightens up and improves loose and sagging skin.²

Venus Freeze’s clinical reviews have shown that, after a treatment, the skin is rejuvenated in many ways. Patients have new and firm skin, but it also reduces fat and blemishes, improves skin tone, and creates a bright and fresh appearance.2 Researchers concluded that “significant improvement in skin laxity was observed in all [patients…] All patients reported that they were satisfied with the procedure and noticed visible improvement in their skin condition after the treatment.”3
