Body Sculpting: What Is It and What Are the Benefits of Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

Body sculpting treatments is a term that refers to a number of non-surgical body contouring procedures. These types of procedures can be used to get rid of stubborn areas of fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of by sticking to a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

Does this sound like you? If so, our non-invasive body sculpting treatments in Dallas, TX are an option for you to consider.

These treatments can help you slim down, get toned, and lift sagging areas. Common problem areas they can benefit are abs, thighs, love handles, upper arms, and even loose facial skin.

How Does Body Sculpting Work?

Non-Surgical Body Contouring Procedures Explained

There are several different methods that can be used for non-surgically sculpting bodies, but all of them have one thing in common: they work by targeting and destroying fat cells in specific problem areas.

Some methods destroy fat by freezing fat cells, whereas others use heat, ultrasound, or radio frequencies to target and kill fat. All methods are non-surgical and non-invasive, making them a favorable alternative to invasive cosmetic treatments, such as plastic surgery and liposuction.

Our body sculpting and body contouring treatments consist of all-natural processes. Here’s an example: a slimming procedure brings your unwanted fat cells into what’s called apoptosis, which essentially means that the cells start dying off naturally.

As fat cells die naturally, your body’s lymphatic system flushes them out. This leads to natural slimming without any damage to the surrounding skin and tissue (as you would experience with surgical procedures).

What Are Some Common Types of Body Sculpting Procedures Out There?

  1. Cold Treatments (iCryo’s specialty!)
  2. Heat Treatments
  3. Ultrasound Treatments
  4. Radiofrequency Treatments

Cold Treatments:

Cold body sculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, kills resistant fat cells by freezing them until they crystallize and can be flushed out gradually by the body. This permanently destroys the fat cells in a natural way without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue in any way.

It’s important to note that iCRYO exclusively offers cold body sculpting treatments. We prefer this method because it can be used to slim, tone, and lift pretty much any area of the body, unlike other types of treatments that are only effective in certain areas.

Heat Treatments:

Heat sculpting treatments penetrate the skin and surrounding tissue using lasers to destroy persistent fat cells. Your body then eliminates these dead fat cells, leading to natural fat loss in the targeted area.

Laser body sculpting machines clip onto the target area and pulse lasers into your body to kill the fat cells in that specific area. Because of this, heat treatments are more effective in flatter areas like your abdomen and thighs.

Ultrasound Treatments:

Ultrasound treatments employ a special device that a technician manually moves around your body. The ultrasound device sends mechanical vibrations through your skin and the surrounding tissue to break down and kill fat cells.

Ultrasound body sculpting is generally only performed on the abdomen and is not effective in other areas.

Radiofrequency Treatments:

Radiofrequency treatments heat up the targeted area and go after the water in fat cells. This type of body contour treatment breaks down and destroys fat cells in a totally non-invasive manner. However, you must be well-hydrated beforehand for this to work.

What Are the Benefits of Body Contouring without Surgery?

One of the most appealing advantages of non-surgical body sculpting is that there is almost no downtime required and no extensive recovery period after the treatments. Some of our patients even report that the procedures are relaxing and enjoyable!

An average body contouring session only lasts around 30-40 minutes. After that, you can go about your day as if nothing happened.

Most people who try body sculpting procedures see immediate results and often experience continued improvements for 2-3 weeks after the treatment.

Non-invasive body contouring doesn’t employ anesthesia and there is very minimal discomfort associated with the treatments.

Some patients experience minor bruising, tenderness, tingling, stinging, soreness, or swelling in the targeted area for a few hours or days after a procedure. However, the discomfort is nowhere near what invasive surgical procedures cause and shouldn’t inhibit regular day-to-day activities.

Body Sculpting Benefits:

  • Kills stubborn fat cells naturally
  • Slims, tones, and lifts targeted areas
  • Doesn’t damage skin or tissue
  • Short procedure times
  • Doesn’t interfere with regular activities
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Rapid recovery
  • Immediate, measurable results
  • Continued fat loss for 2-3 weeks
  • No anesthesia
  • No stitches or scarring

Are There Any Risks Associated with Sculpting Body Fat?

Body sculpting treatments are totally safe and FDA-approved. Keep in mind that even though most patients report immediate and long-term results, results vary from person to person.

Individuals with certain medical conditions are not good candidates for body contouring. Consult with a professional to discuss your unique situation and decide whether you can benefit from a body sculpting procedure.

It’s also important to note that these types of treatments are not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise.
