Body contouring is a beauty service that improves the shape, size, texture, and appearance of our bodies. Body contouring services can be surgical (invasive) and non-surgical (non-invasive) depending on the treatment method, your preference and budget. Generally speaking, non-invasive body contouring services are safer, painless, less expensive, and produce positive results instantly but usually take multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
Also, results from non-invasive body contouring services typically require maintenance if the client does not maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise. However, it is not uncommon to need maintenance treatments several months after or a few sessions if you have a special event such as a wedding coming up you want to prepare for.
On the other hand, invasive body contouring procedures like skin lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, butt implants, and breast augmentation surgeries are considered to be dangerous due to the side-effects and high mortality rate, have a long recovery time, and are very expensive.
Despite the pros and cons, body contouring services are becoming increasingly popular around the world. Both men and women are readily seeking out body contouring services to improve their body shape and size. Men want a chiseled look with well-defined abs, and women prefer to have sexier curves. But a runway model look is not the only benefit of body contouring services.
People with the following conditions can also benefit greatly from body contouring services:
People with Cellulite
Cellulite is most common amongst women. When the formation of fat cells in the body increases, especially in the lower body (abdominal region, thighs, and buttocks), fat cells push against the skin cells, and this causes the skin to appear lumpy and uneven. Sometimes, it is also referred to as the dimpling of skin because it looks like the skin around the thighs, buttocks, and lower abdomen has several dimples.
Thankfully, non-invasive body contouring services can reduce the appearance of cellulite and restore your skin’s firm texture. During the non-invasive body countering services, an array of rays, beams, waves, and heat are used to break down fat cells and naturally eliminate them from the body via fast absorption or through the lymphatic system. Once the fat cells are removed, the skin cells come back to their original position, and the production of collagen tightens the skin, making it appear firmer and more youthful than before.
People with Loose/ Saggy Skin
People who lose a lot of weight in a short period of time are left with the dilemma of seeing their loose and saggy skin in the mirror. Saggy skin is also a common problem after pregnancy. But once again, non-invasive body contouring services can save the day. Unlike surgical tummy tucks, non-invasive body contouring procedures help the skin become tighter and firmer naturally.
The heat that radiates from the FDA-approved handheld devices first damages the deeper layers of our skin. To repair the damage, our body produces collagen, which is a special protein that is found in our hair, skin, bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is elastic in nature, and it gives our skin a certain degree of elasticity to make it appear younger, tighter, and firmer. The production of collagen after the body countering treatments produces the same results as an expensive tummy tuck or skin lifting surgery.
People with Stubborn Fat
People who are unable to get rid of stubborn fat pockets despite regular exercise and a healthy diet can benefit from non-invasive body contouring services like vacuum therapy, laser liposuction, body cavitation, and radiofrequency treatment.
The stubborn fat pockets don’t melt away easily and hence cannot be converted to energy even when the body is deficient in calories. To remove these hardened adipose tissues, high-intensity waves, laser beams, and heat are used to break down fat cells into simpler and softer particles. After body countering services, customers can notice an immediate fat reduction by the means of inch loss and a slimmer body.
People with Slow Metabolic Rate
Because of some medical conditions like hormonal imbalances, some people a slow metabolic rate. This means that their body burns calories at a much slower rate as compared to the rate at which calories are being consumed. People with slow metabolic rates store more fat as compared to people with a high metabolic rate.
Regular exercise can also be a problem for people with slow metabolic rates because they will feel drained out a lot faster than their counterparts with a high metabolic rate as their body is unable to produce energy at a fast enough rate. Hence, non-invasive body contouring services can help people with slow metabolic rates stay in shape and prevent the onset of obesity.
