The 3 Industry-Standard Methods of Body Contouring

body contouring

It can take a long time to lose weight and get the body you want. Sometimes dieting, exercising, and counting calories gets difficult, and doesn’t pay off the way you’d hoped. Invasive procedures like liposuction deliver instant results, but cost a lot of money and require extensive recovery times. 
Body contouring procedures offer a non-invasive middle ground for people looking to make some big changes in a short time span. While it may take a few weeks to see results from a body contouring procedure, there is no recovery time and no surgery is required. You can drop into a clinic on your lunch hour, and see results within six weeks. Here are three body contouring methods that have proven results:

1. CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that targets fat cells in a whole new way. Using cold temperatures, CoolSculpting destroys fat cells while leaving the surrounding muscle tissue unharmed. The eliminated fat cells are then flushed out of your body through your lymphatic system naturally within six weeks. 
CoolSculpting has been proven effective for contouring many parts of the body. Healthline recommends it for getting rid of fat on the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, back, butt, and even under the chin. A single CoolSculpting procedure usually lasts from thirty minutes to one hour. For best results, multiple treatments are recommended. 

2. Cooltone

Although named similarly to CoolSculpting, CoolTone sculpts your body with a totally different method. Instead of freezing away fat cells, CoolTone stimulates the muscles to improve your muscle tone. CoolTone uses magnetic muscle stimulation to make your muscles involuntarily contract. These contractions strengthen muscle fibers, giving you a more toned and defined look. 
CoolTone makes a great choice for anyone who wants more muscle definition but isn’t getting the results they want from the gym. CoolTone works well on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, and one treatment usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes. Multiple treatments may be needed to see the best results.  

3. SculpSure

Lastly, we have SculpSure, also known as laser lipolysis. SculpSure uses a laser to get rid of fat cells in the body. SculpSure’s noninvasive procedure eliminates fat cells without surgery. The extremely high temperature of the laser causes fat cells to die off. Then, the dead cells are cleared away naturally by the body’s lymphatic system. Lipolysis usually shows results after about 12 weeks. 
Lipolysis treatments generally target body fat in the abdomen and thighs. A treatment usually lasts about 25 minutes and doesn’t require recovery time. As with other body contouring procedures, it generally takes multiple procedures to get the best results.
