Non Surgical Body Contouring – Understanding Your Options

 In Aesthetics, Blog, Body Contouring, CoolSculpting, Emsculpt

Achieving the ideal physique often involves a desire to fine-tune and sculpt the body. While traditional methods such as diet and exercise play a crucial role, some areas may prove stubborn and resistant to change. In the past, liposuction was the go-to solution for those seeking a more sculpted figure. However, not everyone is comfortable with or ready for a surgical intervention such as liposuction. Luckily, advancements in cosmetic technology have introduced a range of non surgical body contouring options, providing effective alternatives to invasive procedures. Let’s take a look at two of today’s most popular non-surgical options, CoolSculpting Elite and Emsculpt, and learn how they work, the benefits they provide, and why they can be a superior choice to liposuction.

CoolSculpting Elite – Freeze Away Unwanted Fat

How It Works

CoolSculpting Elite, an evolution of the original CoolSculpting, employs a process known as cryolipolysis. This non-invasive body contouring technique selectively freezes fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. The frozen fat cells undergo apoptosis, a natural cell death process, and are gradually eliminated by the body’s natural processes.


Non-Invasive Procedure:

One of the primary advantages of CoolSculpting Elite is that it is entirely non-invasive. Unlike liposuction, it doesn’t require incisions, anesthesia, or surgery. This means no downtime, minimal discomfort, and a quicker return to regular activities.

Precision in Fat Reduction:

CoolSculpting Elite employs advanced technology with dual applicators and redesigned applicator heads, allowing for more precise and efficient treatment. This innovation enables the simultaneous treatment of two areas, making the procedure faster and more targeted.

Gradual and Natural Results:

Unlike some immediate results seen with surgical procedures, CoolSculpting Elite offers a gradual and natural transformation. The treated fat cells are crystallized and then naturally eliminated by the body over time. This gradual process ensures that the changes appear natural, avoiding a sudden and drastic shift in appearance. 

Customizable Treatment Areas:

CoolSculpting Elite’s versatility extends to its ability to address various areas of the body. Whether it’s love handles, abdomen, thighs, or other common trouble spots, the treatment can be tailored to meet individual goals.

Comfortable Experience:

Patients report experiencing little to no discomfort with CoolSculpting Elite. While there might be some initial sensations of cold and suction as the treatment begins, these sensations typically subside quickly, and patients can relax, read, or even take a nap during the procedure.

Why It Can Be a Better Option

CoolSculpting Elite is an attractive option for those seeking targeted fat reduction without the risks and downtime associated with surgery. Its precision and gradual results make it an excellent choice for individuals looking for a non-surgical approach to body sculpting.

Emsculpt – Increase Muscle Definition

How It Works

Emsculpt is a revolutionary technology designed not just for fat reduction but also for muscle toning. Using high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, Emsculpt induces powerful muscle contractions that are not achievable through voluntary contractions during exercise. These contractions lead to muscle remodeling and the elimination of fat cells.


Dual Action:

One of the key advantages of Emsculpt is its dual-action approach. Unlike many non surgical body contouring treatments that focus solely on fat reduction, Emsculpt goes a step further by simultaneously addressing muscle toning. This dual benefit makes it a versatile solution for those looking to enhance both their physique and muscular definition.

Unparalleled Efficiency:

Emsculpt offers efficiency beyond traditional exercise. In just a single session, the treatment is equivalent to performing thousands of sit-ups or squats. This efficiency is particularly appealing to individuals with busy lifestyles who may struggle to find the time for extensive workout routines. Emsculpt provides a time-effective solution to sculpting the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms.


Much like CoolSculpting Elite, Emsculpt is a non-invasive procedure. It doesn’t require incisions, anesthesia, or surgery, making it a safer and more comfortable alternative to invasive surgical procedures. While the intensity of the muscle contractions may be felt during the treatment, patients often find it a tolerable experience. The absence of downtime allows individuals to return to their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Precision Sculpting:

Emsculpt’s technology allows for precise muscle sculpting. It targets specific muscle groups, providing tailored results based on individual goals. Whether it’s enhancing abdominal definition or toning the buttocks, Emsculpt can be customized to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Stimulates Muscle Growth:

Beyond toning, Emsculpt stimulates muscle growth. The high-intensity electromagnetic energy induces powerful contractions in the targeted muscles, triggering a process known as hyperplasia. This results in the growth of muscle fibers, contributing to a more sculpted and defined appearance.

Versatility in Treatment Areas:

Emsculpt is versatile in its ability to target various areas of the body. Whether it’s abdominal sculpting, buttock lifting, or toning the thighs and arms, Emsculpt can be adapted to address different regions, providing a comprehensive solution for full-body sculpting.

The efficiency of Emsculpt is a game-changer. Achieving the equivalent of thousands of sit-ups or squats in a single session is a remarkable time-saving benefit compared to the hours spent at the gym.

Why It Can Be a Better Option

Emsculpt is ideal for individuals who not only want to reduce stubborn fat pockets but also desire enhanced muscle definition. It’s a non-surgical way to achieve a more sculpted and toned appearance.
