You've got questions, we've got answers.

Let’s take a look at some facts about body sculpting.

So you’ve been exercising regularly. You’ve been eating a healthy diet. You’re feeling great, but you’re still not seeing the results you dreamed of. What can you do? If you have stubborn areas of fat that you want to get rid of, or simply wish the shape of a part of your body was different, you might be wondering if non-surgical body sculpting treatments are right for you.

Body sculpting procedures like those we offer at Body Sculpting Marin are fast, non-invasive, and help to quickly achieve results.

Body sculpting targets and kills fat cells in the body without surgery. It allows you to shape and lose stubborn fat in areas such as the upper arms, abdomen, hips, and thighs.

Not only does body sculpting help destroy fat, but it also reduces cellulite, promotes healthy blood circulation, and strengthens connective tissue. This procedure is ideal for those who are close to their ideal weight, but have parts of their body they’d like to shape, tighten, tone, or define a little more.

Body sculpting procedures use different types of energy to kill fat cells and visibly tighten skin. Once the treatment is complete, the body processes and filters out the destroyed fat cells over the course of the next 3-4 months, which is when most people see the full effect of the procedure.

Now that you know how body sculpting works, let’s review the different types of body sculpting available.
There are several different types of body sculpting treatments. The two types we’ll focus on here first are treatments using ultrasound and radio frequency to target and shape areas.

Here at Body Sculpting Marin, we use the Zemit Bionexis. It is a vacuum slimming machine. It destroys fat cells, activates lymph flow, helps to eliminate bodily toxins, and eliminates puffiness.

Ultrasound body sculpting
This procedure uses ultrasound waves to break down fat. Ultrasound frequencies are very gentle on the skin and allow you to precisely target specific areas on your body.

Radiofrequency body sculpting
Radiofrequency body sculpting procedures use energy to create heat to get rid of fat cells. This type of procedure specifically goes after the water in fat cells, so it’s important to make sure you’re hydrated beforehand and drink plenty of water afterward.

Cold treatment body sculpting
This treatment uses a device that suctions skin and then uses cold temperatures to kill the fat underneath the skin. The cold temperatures do not damage the skin.

Heat treatment body sculpting
Heat treatments use laser energy to break down fat cells until the body filters them out. Because the devices are flat, this type of treatment is usually best for the abdomen.

Body sculpting is non-invasive and involves little to no pain. Side effects to body sculpting procedures are very minimal, usually consisting of minor pain, swelling, or a warm feeling on the treated area.

Still, it’s always a good idea to consider your health history before getting treatment. Our friendly, highly trained practitioners will discuss which procedure will be the best for you.

So you know that body sculpting kills fat and helps shape and firm targeted areas of your body. But isn’t that what liposuction does? Sort of, but with a few key differences.

Liposuction uses a suction technique to remove fat from targeted areas. It is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and a longer recovery time (usually 1-2 months) than body sculpting. Associated risks include complications from anesthesia, bleeding, and uneven fat reduction.

Body sculpting has minimal side effects and because it is non-invasive, it allows you to get back to your normal routine immediately following treatment.

Depending on the type of treatment, your body sculpting appointments may take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour or more. You can usually plan on coming in for 8-12 appointments before the treatment is complete, and will usually see full results over the next 3-4 months.

Appointments will usually be scheduled 7-14 days apart to ensure optimal results.

Most of us have had procedures done where we’re not supposed to eat for hours beforehand. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about that with body contouring!

However, there are a few simple things our team recommends you do before coming in for your body contouring appointment:

  • Increase your water intake for 2 days beforehand. Because radiofrequency targets the water in fat cells, keeping hydrated before and after your appointment will help the effectiveness of the procedure
  • Keep your treatment areas out of direct sunlight for a week beforehand. We don’t want any sunburns!
  • Avoid wearing makeup or deodorant on your treatment area. These might irritate the skin during the procedure.

Because body sculpting procedures are non-invasive, you can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. You may experience some redness, swelling, or tenderness around the treatment area for a few days following the procedure. However, pain is usually very minimal.
