There are 2 major kinds of body contouring – the Invasive and non-invasive procedures. The invasive procedure is usually a surgical approach – liposuction, tummy tuck, arm or thigh lift, and more. This procedure is done with general anesthesia and usually requires an overnight stay in the hospital. But lately, the less invasive versions of body contouring have been making waves in the cosmetic industry. This procedure focuses on either melting or freezing stubborn areas that keep pockets of fats. Being a less invasive approach, this also means this process takes time and a handful of sessions before you see full results, however, the upside also means little to no downtime, no general anesthesia needed, no scars to worry about, and comes with almost no side effects.
There are plenty of treatments you can choose from when it comes to body contouring such as Red Light Therapy, Laser Treatment, CoolSculpting, Radiofrequency lipolysis (RF) and more. What to remember: Body contouring options are very personal and are based on what your cosmetic goals are. And while non-invasive body contouring is a wonderful option, sustaining your contoured silhouette will still depend on your lifestyle – nutrition, exercise, and rest.
