Body Sculpting – It’s Not Too Early to Get Ready for Bikini Season

 In Aesthetics, Blog, Body Contouring

With spring just weeks away and summer soon to follow, now is the perfect time to start getting in shape for bikini season. When you hit the beach, you want to look your best. So what’s stopping you? Stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of diet and exercise have been able to eliminate? Annoying cellulite? Or do you just want toned abs and a firmer butt without all the work? No matter what your body sculpting goals are, there’s a solution. Vive offers a variety of non-invasive treatments to have you bikini ready when beach weather arrives.


Based on the proven science of cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat. It is FDA cleared for the treatment of various parts of the body where those troublesome pockets of fat are commonly found. These include the abdomen and flank, submental area (double chin), thighs, upper arms, back fat, bra fat, and the area below the buttocks (also known as banana roll). There are different CoolSculpting applicators, each designed to treat different areas.

When applied to the skin, the CoolSculpting applicators deliver controlled cooling that freezes stubborn fat cells, causing them to die and be naturally eliminated by the body. This results in a more sculpted physique.  During treatment, you will initially experience an intense cold and with some applicators, you may feel mild suction. The treated area will go numb for the remainder of the treatment.

Many people read or check their email during treatment. Others just close their eyes and relax. You may experience tingling or redness in the treatment area following the procedure but this is only temporary. The procedure is non-invasive and requires no downtime. CoolScuplting is a great body sculpting solution for those who are close to or at their ideal weight and just can’t get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat.


Unwanted fat might not be the only thing that’s keeping you from feeling confident in your bikini. Did you know that 90% of women are affected by cellulite? BodyFX is a non-invasive, FDA approved treatment system that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin, remove fat, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. It delivers short bursts of high-voltage energy that disrupts the fat cell walls and causes them to die off. The BodyFX technology also combines vacuum and radiofrequency energy, which gently tightens the skin and fibrous attachments that result in cellulite. Most patients report experiencing only a slight warming sensation during treatments and there is no downtime with BodyFX, allowing you to immediately return to normal daily activities.

Want to kick the results of your BodyFX treatment up a notch? A healthy diet and regular exercise can be the perfect complement to BodyFX, creating a body sculpting one-two punch.


The latest addition to Vive’s selection of body sculpting treatments is EMSculpt. It is non-invasive and uses HIFEM® (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology to stimulate muscle contractions. The contractions caused by this technology are more powerful than voluntary contractions and help to build and strengthen muscles by deeply remodeling their inner structure. The contractions also cause fat cells to break down, releasing free fatty acids and help reduce the layer of fat covering the muscles.

EMSculpt can trim your waist, define your abs and firm your butt. The contractions it stimulates are the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches or squats. The best part is that you don’t even have to break a sweat, just lay back and relax. Some patients report slight discomfort from the powerful muscle contractions but there is no downtime. After treatment, you will just feel like you had an intense workout. EMSculpt can be the perfect body sculpting solution for those already at or near their ideal weight.
