Beatitude offers several non-surgical body contouring technologies that can help your body look slimmer and smoother. These revolutionary methods are becoming more and more popular, especially for areas of the body that refuse to respond to diet and exercise.
At Beatitude, we stay up to date on the very latest procedures for body contouring in order to bring our clients the best ways to look better, younger, and thinner without surgery or down time.
Body Contouring can:
- Reduce fat in many areas of the body
- Improve the appearance of cellulite
- Reduce stretch marks
- Tighten and tone lax, sagging skin without surgery
- Improve crepey skin
Difference between liposuction and non-surgical fat reduction
Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that mechanically removes fat cells. While the treatment can give immediate results, there are associated risks and down time. Often, we see people who’ve had liposuction in the past who now look lumpy from uneven treatment. Sometimes, they’ve had too much fat removed, resulting in sagging skin.
Non-surgical fat reduction using devices like Venus Freeze painlessly shrinks or destroys fat cells. There is also skin tightening from the RF heating. They will not leave you lumpy or unnatural looking. However, they require series of treatments and can give variable results. The most common areas treated are stomach, flanks/love handles, bra bulge, thighs and buttocks.
Body Contouring Treatments
Skin tightening treatments can be done on the body as well with our Thermage CPT and Venus Freeze. Areas most often treated on the body are abdomen, thighs, and under arms. They can also improve the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite is a very difficult condition to treat. It’s due to genetics and how the fat is organized in women. Our clients tell us that no amount of exercise can improve their cellulite.
Cellulite treatments can vary from person to person. If the client has little to no fat, Dr. Chang may recommend Thermage CPT as the starting treatment to improve the appearance of cellulite. If the client needs fat reduction as well, she may recommend Venus Freeze. Resurfacing treatments such as SkinFinity can give additional tightening, and microneedling treatments can give textural improvement. Cellulite treatments require maintenance.
Stretch Marks is another difficult condition to treat requiring series of treatments and patience. We use resurfacing collagen remodeling treatments like Fraxel DUAL Laser and SkinFinity. Often, we combine skin tightening treatments like Thermage CPT. Stretch marks require series of 4-5 treatments spaced 6weeks apart. A single treatment can take up to 6 months to see the full result. Skin tightening requires maintenance.
