Body Contouring Q & A

How does nonsurgical body contouring work?

Nonsurgical body contouring systems deliver energy below the surface level of your skin. They destroy fat molecules, forcing your body to flush them out. While you won’t have instant results, as your body pushes out your broken-down fat, you start noticing and feeling a slimming effect. Beaird Dermatology offers many solutions for targeting fat cells. Some of the fat-destroying systems in the state-of-the-art office include:

  • Vanquish ME™
  • Exilis Ultra 360™
  • Cellutone™

Sometimes body contouring involves improving the appearance of your skin, too. The experts at Beaird Dermatology might suggest using a different type of system that promotes collagen formation and smooths out your skin. These treatments deliver targeted energy below the surface level of your skin, so your skin gradually starts smoothing out and appearing more toned. Skin-tightening systems used by Beaird Dermatology experts include:

  • Ultra Femme 360™
  • Cutera Excel V
  • Bovie J-Plasma

In some cases, your practitioner may suggest combining different systems to achieve the results you’re looking for. They can let you know which options are best for you during your initial consultation.

Which areas can a doctor treat with laser body sculpting systems?

Your dermatologist can sculpt just about any area you’re self-conscious about. Noninvasive body sculpting can tone your:

  • Abdomen and flanks
  • Thighs and upper arms
  • Chin and jawline
  • Chest and back

Is body contouring painful?

Not at all. Most patients report feeling some heat or tingling during their treatments, but not any pain. If you do have some discomfort, it’s generally caused by the heat generated by heating up the lower level of your skin. The system isn’t heating up the surface level of your skin, so you don’t have to worry about burning.

It’s common to feel a little sore or have some swelling in the targeted area afterwards. This effect goes away in less than a day usually and shouldn’t impact your ability to do any of your normal activities — including exercise. Patients typically describe a bruising type of sensation if they do have soreness afterwards, although this isn’t common.
