Body contouring is a fast and effective way to eliminate excess fat in specific areas of your body. The fat that does not respond to exercise and diet can make you feel unattractive and helpless. McDonough body contouring techniques at Ideal MedSpas provide natural, long-lasting remedies to help you redeem your body shape and boost your self-esteem.

Body contouring 101

Body contouring, also known as body sculpting, uses cosmetic treatments to effectively firm and tone the body when traditional methods like exercise and diet fail to provide you with your desired results.

The treatments work to destroy fat cells, thus remodeling and reshaping your figure.

Different types of body contouring treatments

The different body contouring treatments offered at Ideal MedSpas destroy fat cells in different ways and include:

1.      CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses a procedure known as cryolipolysis.  This procedure involves the use of cooling and gentle suctioning techniques to eliminate fat cells by freezing them.

The procedure usually takes about an hour to treat a single targeted body part. During the procedure, your care provider will place a roll of fat into two panels. The panels freeze the fat, causing them to rupture.  With time, the fat cells are excreted by your lymphatic system through your liver. You will notice the full results of your procedure within three months. It is normal to experience short-term redness and swelling in the target area after the procedure.

Studies have revealed that CoolSculpting can reduce fat by approximately 25% and maintain results for up to six months.

The specific target areas recommended for CoolSculpting are the thighs, belly, sides, lower back, and sides.  CoolSculpting can also reduce fat under the chin or cellulite on the arms, legs, and buttocks.

2.      Viora V-FORM

Viora V-Form is a non-invasive body contouring procedure involving radiofrequency waves and vacuum suctioning techniques to get rid of fat and encourage skin tightening by promoting collagen production elastin.

During the procedure, your care provider will first apply glycerin oil to your skin to smooth the area. Afterward, a Viora V-FORM device is moved across the target area. The radiofrequency waves target fat deposits by increasing metabolism through deep tissue heating, breaking down fat cells. The vacuum suction increases blood circulation and lymphatics by mechanically massaging the target area. The treatment usually lasts about 15-30 minutes.

Viora V-FORM procedure can also be used to reduce stretch marks and wrinkles. The radiofrequency waves stimulate collagen and elastin fibers in the target area, improving skin’s elasticity over time. Viora V-FORM can be used to tighten the forehead, cheeks, eyes, neck, and jawline.

To get optimal results, your care provider will recommend more Viora V-FORM treatments.

The best candidates for body contouring

Your care provider should first perform a physical assessment of your current body weight to understand the ideal treatment option for you. It is important to remember that although body contouring treatments are effective ways of eliminating fat cells resistant to exercise and diet, the best body contouring candidates are those within 20-30 pounds of their desired weight.

Body contouring is not a weight loss option for overweight conditions like obesity. Learn more about the body contouring options offered at Ideal MedSpas by visiting their website today.
