Top 3 Body Contouring Techniques

Creating the body, you want can be tough. Even with a solid exercise routine and a healthy diet, you may find yourself with certain tough spots and problem areas. It can be frustrating when these spots never seem to change or progress no matter how hard you work. This is where body contouring comes in! Though it cannot provide significant weight loss, body contouring complements your existing workout regimen and healthy lifestyle!

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is exactly as it sounds – it’s a procedure that helps shape and contour your body. Often, this is in the form of reducing and eliminating fat cells. Patients usually notice a significant difference after treatment – skin is tighter, healthier, and more toned.

Body contouring is done anywhere on the body, though some common areas include the stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms, and armpits.

There are many ways to eliminate fat cells. For years, liposuction has been the most popular and at times, the only option. Unfortunately, liposuction is a risky and invasive procedure that comes with many side effects and long recovery times.

Thankfully, there are better options available today. Modern technology and innovation have given us a few different body contouring techniques that are non-invasive, faster, cheaper, and safer than liposuction!

Top 3 Body Contouring Techniques

There are several different methods and techniques out there, meaning there’s something for just about everyone! The various methods may work differently for different people, but the following are among the best body contouring techniques:

Radiofrequency Lipolysis

The radiofrequency technique involves heating the fat cells until they burst and ultimately die. Controlled bursts of energy are delivered to the target site, generating the required heat. This is one of the most commonly used treatments by dermatologists and body sculpting experts.

This method is particularly effective in targeting stubborn lumps and bulges of fat that just won’t go away no matter what you do or how hard you try.


Ultrasound technology is used to emit pulsed acoustic sounds which travel underneath the skin and rupture the fat cells. This process eliminates the unwanted fat cells but does not affect healthy cells, meaning there is minimal risk of damage to the skin. It also leaves healthy nerves, blood, and lymph vessels alone meaning you won’t have any scarring to worry about.

This method is most commonly used on thighs, abdomens, and arms to treat specific stubborn fat areas. It’s a versatile treatment designed to help people at all stages of their health and fitness journey. It’s a great way to kick-start a new weight loss management program or put the finishing touches on your transformation.

Ultrasound sessions usually last around 30-45 minutes. Depending on your specific goals, a few sessions may be required to reach optimal results.

Cryolipolysis is essentially the opposite of radiofrequency – this method uses freezing temperatures to kill off unwanted fat cells. It’s a simple method, with the target areas being exposed to temperatures of around -11 to 5 degrees Celsius. This is the perfect temperature to kill fat cells while doing no harm to healthy skin cells.

Also known as “cool sculpting” this method is the best-known method of body contouring and has been FDA-approved. Generally, it’s possible to target up to two areas at a time with this treatment, and the sessions will take between 30 and 60 minutes. Buttocks, abdomen, and thighs are the most common areas to use this technique on.

TruSculpt Cutera

These three body contouring techniques are among the most innovative and popular. They’re all very safe and are similarly effective. To get the absolute best results, you not only want to use the best technology, but you want a true professional working the device.

Possible Side Effects

While our method of body contouring is non-invasive and extremely safe, there are a few mild side effects and implications. It’s important to be aware of these before booking a treatment:

  • You can expect some moments of pain throughout the procedure.
  • After the treatment, you may experience mild swelling, redness, bruising, and/or irritation for a short time. This is normal and expected.

Results and Aftercare

You will likely see the results of your treatment immediately after completion, while further results may develop for up to 12 weeks afterwards. As long as you maintain the healthy lifestyle you had when you got the treatment, the results will last forever!

If you start implementing a poor diet and/or unhealthy lifestyle, the fat cells will re-form and you’ll be right back where you started.

In terms of aftercare and recovery, there is very little you must do. You may want to rest for a short time after treatment, but you can go back to most of your regular activities immediately. There are only a few things you must avoid for 72 hours after treatment: alcohol, spas, saunas, and strenuous exercise. This allows your liver and body to eliminate toxins and fatty acids.
