Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring, also known as body sculpting and tightening, is a safe, painless, and non-invasive way to destroy stubborn pockets of fat and tighten loose skin. It involves sending radiofrequency energy (RF) deep down into the fatty tissue, which forces them to break down and liquify. 

 

While it’s not a weight-loss solution, body contouring can help you achieve a slimmer, more toned physique without needing invasive procedures — like liposuction. 

What areas can body contouring treat?

 

Laser body contouring may help eliminate fat on the face and body, including the: 

 

  • Abdomen 
  • Hips 
  • Arms 
  • Thighs 
  • Neck 
  • Chin

 

Body contouring can be used on most skin types, making it a suitable treatment for anyone seeking complete body rejuvenation. 

What does body contouring involve?

 

Body contouring at The Collagen Bar involves in-office procedures using Collagenizer NEO™ as well as technology by Inmode™: Evolve Trim-Tite-Tone®, BodyFX®, Forma®, and Morpheus8®.

 

These procedures are FDA-cleared for skin tightening anywhere on the body. The Collagen Bar also customizes your treatment plan to suit your cosmetic goals. Whether you want to trim fat, tighten loose skin, or tone muscles, your skin care specialist can use multiple devices to get you the desired look. 

 

Body contouring has minimal side effects, but you may experience some swelling, bruising, tingling, or minor discomfort. Most patients find body contouring a comfortable process, and their side effects subside rather quickly. 

Am I a candidate for body contouring?

You may be a candidate for body contouring if you have mild to moderate sagging skin or age-related beauty concerns. However, body contouring isn’t an effective treatment for obesity or post-pregnancy loose skin.  

 

If you have unwanted fat, are generally healthy, and have realistic body goals, body contouring may be right for you. 

When will I see the results with body contouring?

Even though body contouring addresses fat cells on the spot, it can take time for your body to flush the fat away. The Collagen Bar recommends weekly sessions of 30-60 minutes each, performed over a 3-6 week period. Within the first few weeks*, you may find gradual improvements in the treatment area.   

 

You may need additional body contouring sessions if you have more stubborn fat buildup, but your specialist can discuss this with you.
