Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a term generally used to describe treatments that refine the contours of your body without the need for anesthesia, surgery, or lengthy recovery times. There are numerous procedures to choose from and a variety of settings in which you can receive those treatments. 

It’s important to understand that while body contouring treatments are noninvasive, they are backed by powerful technology. Working with a medical professional is the best way to ensure you get the results you seek without placing your health at risk. 

Dr. Aguiluz has the training and experience to leverage this advanced technology to your greatest advantage.

What is EMSCULPT®?

EMSCULPT is a noninvasive treatment that uses electromagnetic pulses to build muscle tissue. It also helps break down fat in the treatment area. 

You can lie down and relax during your treatments, which only take around 30 minutes from start to finish. You might feel your muscles contracting during your session, similar to the sensations of an intense workout. 

Men and women who try EMSCULPT show a 16% increase in muscle mass in the treatment areas and express a 96% satisfaction rate. You might begin to see the effects after your initial treatment, although it can take several months for the full results to show. 

What treatments tighten skin and improve the appearance of cellulite?

If you’re troubled by the lumps, bumps, and dimples of cellulite, a treatment called CELLUTONE™ can help. The process involves using targeted vibrations to improve circulation and boost oxygen supply to the treatment area. This enhances the appearance of your skin and makes cellulite far less noticeable. 

Additional benefits include renewed collagen production and increased lymphatic drainage. There is no need for anesthesia, advance preparation, or downtime. 

Exilis Ultra 360™ skin tightening uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and ultrasound to reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten your skin. The treatment platform creates heat in the deeper layers of your skin, promoting new collagen production that tightens skin and smooths away lines and wrinkles. 

Liposuction is often considered a body contouring treatment. This surgical procedure uses a thin tube called a cannula and an external device to suction fat from your body. It requires just a few small incisions, and it takes around a week before the majority of swelling and bruising subsides.
