Nonsurgical Body Sculpting, Explained

There are a wide variety of safe, effective devices that are being used in clinics throughout the U.S. to tighten, reshape, and smooth the skin without surgery. Nonsurgical body sculpting is usually priced per session per area, the most popular treatment areas being the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and inner and outer thighs.

Despite the many different techniques, most use either radio frequency, infrared light, or a combination of the two. Nonsurgical body sculpting procedures also have two things in common: reducing cellulite, and firming up your skin.

The best candidates for nonsurgical body sculpting are individuals of all skin types who have mildly loose skin in certain areas or residual skin laxity following a surgical procedure such as liposuction. Continue reading below to find out more about these skin-tightening devices that could give you a firmer, more youthful-looking body:

Radio Frequency

Treatments such as Accent, Pelleve, Exilis, and Thermage use radio frequency to heat tissue and stimulate collagen production. Treatment typically requires 8-10 sessions, which each last about 30-45 minutes. The devices have different levels of penetration based on the amount of electrodes it uses. One electrode is referred to as a mono-polar device, two electrodes are bi-polar, and so forth.

Infrared Light

Titan, SkinTyte, and Viora are examples of infrared light-based treatments, which use a handpiece to administer a continuous “cool” sensation while an infrared light heats the deeper layers of the skin.

Combined Techniques

Velashape uses bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light to gently heat fat cells and the surrounding tissues, along with vacuum technology that elevates this tissue simultaneously.

Venus Freeze uses radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields to create a thermal reaction in the body’s tissue that causes new collagen to form, tightening skin and softening wrinkles.
