Get Rid of Love Handles and Shape Up Before Swimsuit Season

 In Aesthetics, Blog, Body Contouring

Spring is just a few days away and it won’t be long before you can shed those winter clothes. While most people look forward to breaking out the warm-weather wardrobe, there is one item that can cause a bit of anxiety – the swimsuit. Whether it’s swim trunks or a bikini, there is no place to hide those pesky love handles. If you’ve been dieting and exercising to eliminate them before swimsuit season gets here without success, don’t despair. There are other ways to get rid of love handles.

That excess fat that accumulates around the hips and abdominal area can be stubborn. While liposuction has traditionally been the only effective option when diet and exercise fail, many people weren’t willing to undergo surgery. Today there are multiple options to get rid of love handles.


CoolSculpting is a non-surgical contouring treatment that targets fat cells in problem areas. The process is called cryolipolysis. During treatment, fat cells are frozen, causing them to die. The expired cells are eventually eliminated from the body naturally.

CoolSculpting is not meant for those individuals who have a significant amount of weight to lose. It was designed for those who have attained their weight loss goals but still can’t get rid of love handles or other areas of stubborn fat. The ideal candidate is an individual who has small amounts of soft, pinchable fat and is looking to contour their physique. They should have reached their ideal weight and be committed to a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain long-term results.


Emsculpt is another great option to get rid of love handles. It is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that addresses both fat and muscle. Emsculpt uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology. This induces muscle contractions beyond what is achievable through normal exercise, no matter how intense. Emsculpt can induce approximately  20,000 forced contractions per session. It can trim your waist, define your abs and even give your derriere a lift.

Much like CoolSculptung, Emsculpt is designed for individuals who want to put the finishing touch on their weight loss or simply want a more sculpted and toned physique. It is not meant for those facing a significant weight loss challenge. The ideal candidate is an individual who has realized their weight loss goal and maintains a healthy diet and lifestyle. Athletes and bodybuilders can also benefit from Emsculpt.

Forma Plus

If you’re looking to shape up before it’s time to put on that swimsuit, Forma Plus Skin Tightening might be the right solution for you. This non-invasive treatment uses controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the subdermal layers of the skin. This promotes collagen remodeling that results in skin tightening and an overall improvement in skin appearance.

While Forma plus doesn’t destroy fat cells or help to increase muscle, it can be used to further enhance the results provided by CoolSclupting or Emsculpt.  Once you get rid of love handles with either of these treatments, Forma Plus can give your body a more tight and toned look.
