What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a noninvasive treatment that the aesthetic specialists at Horizons Health & Wellness use to reduce areas of fat that aren’t going away despite your diet and exercise efforts.
The healthiest and most effective way to reach your ideal weight and body shape is through a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise, a balanced diet that provides all the nutrition you need without excess calories, and adequate rest and relaxation are all essential to maintaining your ideal weight.
If you’re having difficulty losing excess weight, Horizons Health & Wellness provides medically assisted weight loss programs.
Some people find that even though they’re living an active life and are in their ideal weight range, certain parts of their body stay stubbornly plump. If this is a problem you recognize, body contouring could be right for you.
How does body contouring work?
There are several body contouring technologies available, but the Horizons Health & Wellness team uses Cynosure® FlexSure radiofrequency technology.
FlexSure heats the fat cells in the target area and destroys them. This is perfectly safe because fat cells die at lower temperatures than other cells, meaning the treatment has no adverse effect on the surrounding tissues.
The added advantage of FlexSure is that it’s a wrappable technology, meaning the device conforms smoothly to your skin. Most body contouring devices are handheld wands or applicators that your provider passes over or attaches to your skin. FlexSure consists of flexible panels that wrap around many different body parts, including your:
The team at Horizons Health & Wellness also uses Cynosure’s TempSure Firm platform, which uses radiofrequency technology to reduce cellulite and tighten skin.
What does body contouring treatment feel like?
Body contouring is wholly noninvasive, so there are no uncomfortable injections or painful incisions. You just sit or lie on a comfortable treatment table during your sessions.
The heat that body contouring devices generate feels like having a hot stone massage. There are built-in safety features on body contouring applicators to ensure your skin never gets too hot.
A treatment session might last anywhere from 15-60 minutes, depending on the treatment area size. After your session, you can go on with your day as normal.
When will I see the effects of my body contouring treatment?
You won’t see an immediate difference after a body contouring session, as it takes a while for the dead fat cells to leave your body. That means it could take between 2-3 months to see the effects of your body contouring treatment.
You might also require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
