Body contouring options

Both women and men turn to body contouring solutions when they want their body to have a more toned and smooth appearance. Body contouring is an excellent way for individuals to reduce the appearance of excess fat and have a slimmer, more toned look in certain areas. Liposuction is still today the most popular body contouring option giving patients the most dramatic results but not everyone wants such a minimally invasive procedure. The cosmetic world now offers several solutions to further sculpt and tone your body, without surgery and the need for recovery downtime. These new innovative body contouring options are what everyone is talking about and people are liking what they see.

Up and coming less invasive options

Even though traditional and tumescent liposuction is still the stand-alone method that gives patients the most dramatic body contouring results, there are new options today that are peaking patients’ interest. SmartLipo and Emsculpt are two heavy hitters in the cosmetic world and both are regularly performed at LCS Medical Spa. Patients in Seguin and surrounding areas are seeing the results these nonsurgical body contouring techniques are providing and loving the way they look.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is an FDA approved, minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to strategically melt away fat with a local anesthetic. The triple-wave laser delivers thermal energy directly to the fat cells in the target areas and minimizes the fat cells making it easier for removal. Incisions are also made with SmartLipo, but they are smaller in size compared to traditional liposuction leaving only small scabs left behind which will heal in 7-10 days. SmartLipo is an excellent option for individuals needing moderate body contouring helps with collagen stimulation and formation which may address skin tone and laxity.

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt is another new alternative body contouring option offered by LCS Medical Spa. This innovative technique uses magnetic fields to stimulate underlying muscles in the problem areas. Essentially, a patient wanting a more toned-looking stomach lies still for 30 minutes and their core feels like it did 20,000 sit ups! Emsculpt takes the stimulus directly the muscle group to promote fat burning on top of muscle building so patients are left with a more toned, sculpted appearance. Patients typically need more than one treatment but may begin seeing results sooner. This painless procedure is like having a really intense workout and the Emsculpt device doing all the work!
