Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a noninvasive treatment that reduces the fat on your body that is difficult or impossible to lose. No matter how often you exercise and how well you eat, some areas of fat stay and won’t go away without intervention.

Body contouring isn’t an option for weight loss. While it reduces fat and gives you a slimmer appearance, you shouldn’t get the treatment unless you’re at or near your ideal weight. You can get body contouring treatments after significant weight loss to improve your body’s look and tone trouble spots. 

How does body contouring work?

At Zen Skincare and Medspa, Holly uses My-Lipo by LipoLux, a unique body shaping system with four or eight heating pads to deliver light-based energy to the fat beneath your skin. The heat warms and kills the fat cells but leaves surrounding tissues undamaged. 

Once the fat cells die, your body’s natural systems flush them out of your body over the weeks and months after each session. 

To achieve your ideal results, you need to undergo 10 or more sessions. If you eat healthily and exercise regularly during treatment, you can see a difference in as little as three to five appointments.

For the best results, Holly recommends that you complete a 20-minute workout session after each body contouring session.

What areas can I target with body contouring?

There are several areas on your body that tend to accumulate fat and hold onto it relentlessly. Holly frequently performs body contouring treatments on:

  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks

If you have unwanted fat in other areas, Holly can decide whether or not body contouring is an appropriate fat reduction option or if you should try other strategies. 

Am I a good candidate for body contouring?

Since body contouring treatments at Zen Skincare and Medspa are non-surgical, many patients are great candidates. Holly may allow you to proceed with body contouring treatments if you:

  • Have realistic expectations
  • Live a generally healthy lifestyle
  • Aren’t overweight or obese
  • Don’t have a pacemaker or other medical devices with which the treatment could interfere

To find out for sure if you’re a candidate, you must come to Zen Skincare and Medspa for a quick initial consultation. During this time, Holly assesses your current weight, lifestyle, and goals. If you’re not a candidate for any reason, she helps you explore other options more suited to your condition.

Disliking the shape of your body takes its toll on your self-esteem and causes frustration. To find out if you’re a candidate for body contouring, call Zen Skincare and Medspa or book your appointment online today.
