At The Bougainvillea Clinique in Oviedo, FL, we have double board-certified surgeons with additional training in aesthetics and cosmetics who can help you on your way.

When you work with us, you benefit from our expertise and a good selection of devices designed to assist our patients. Our non-invasive body contouring treatments can help address your specific concerns and achieve the results you’re looking for.

What Is Body Contouring? 

Non-invasive body contouring involves techniques that reshape and enhance your body’s appearance without surgery. These approaches focus on reducing stubborn fat, firming up loose skin, and diminishing the appearance of cellulite. Using several types of technology, we can contour your body in different ways to achieve a more defined and toned silhouette. These sessions are generally brief, require minimal recovery time, and deliver visible results.

What Are the Different Types of Body Contouring? 

Radiofrequency Treatments

Radiofrequency (RF) treatments use heat energy to affect the skin at a deeper level to promote collagen production and disrupt fat cells. This method is effective for both skin tightening and body fat reduction and offers a non-invasive way to achieve a more sculpted physique. RF treatments are generally painless and require little to no downtime.

  • TempSure®: TempSure is an RF treatment used for body contouring that delivers gentle, even heating to the targeted areas, encouraging collagen renewal and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
  • Venus Legacy™: Venus Legacy combines RF energy with pulsed electromagnetic fields to achieve the benefits of body contouring. This treatment not only reduces stubborn fat pockets but also improves skin elasticity, resulting in a smoother, more toned appearance.

Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment that targets and freezes fat cells, leading to their natural elimination from the body. This process is effective for fat reduction in specific areas and helps to contour and shape the body.

CoolSculpting is one cryolipolysis option for body sculpting. It uses suction to pull stubborn fat into the device where it precisely cools targeted fat cells. Over several months, the frozen and destroyed fat cells are removed by the body. This treatment is ideal for reducing stubborn fat in areas like the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, and chin.

Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation

Electromagnetic muscle stimulation (EMS) uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy to induce muscle contractions and provide body contouring. This type of technology primarily builds muscle but can also lead to fat reduction in the area, too.

  • EMSCULPT®: EMSCULPT is a leading EMS treatment that enhances muscle tone and promotes fat loss. It is one of the most advanced types of body contouring available, effectively targeting areas like the abdomen, buttocks, and arms to build muscle and burn fat in one convenient, 30-minute treatment. 
  • CoolTone®: CoolTone employs a type of magnetic muscle stimulation technology known as Active Magnetic Pulse™ to strengthen and tone muscles. This treatment focuses on deep muscle activation, making it ideal for those seeking to enhance muscle definition and achieve a firmer physique in areas such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.

Injections

Injections work by dissolving fat cells in specific areas. Kybella®, an FDA-approved injection, is particularly effective for reducing submental fat, commonly known as a double chin. By breaking down fat cells, Kybella helps to sculpt and refine the jawline, providing a more defined profile. This non-surgical option is ideal for patients looking to address stubborn fat without downtime.

Laser Lipolysis

Laser lipolysis is a non-surgical body contouring method that uses laser energy to target and break down fat cells. SculpSure®, a well-known laser lipolysis treatment, heats fat cells beneath the skin without affecting the surface, leading to their gradual elimination. This treatment is effective for contouring areas like the abdomen and flanks, offering noticeable results with minimal downtime.

Mechanical Massage

Mechanical massage is a body sculpting treatment that uses specialized devices to knead and manipulate the skin, promoting lymphatic drainage and reducing cellulite. Endermologie® is a type of FDA-approved mechanical massage treatment that enhances skin tone and smooths out dimpled areas by stimulating circulation and collagen production. It is ideal for improving the overall appearance and texture of the skin.

Preparing for Your Body Contouring Transformation

Discussing Your Concerns

Each person who comes to us for non-surgical body sculpting has different areas that bother them. We will discuss these particular areas and whether they can all be treated during one session. We always listen to our patients and create treatment plans that take their unique concerns into account. 

Setting Realistic Expectations

Setting realistic expectations is crucial for any body contouring treatment plan. Understanding what the treatments can and cannot achieve will help you have a clearer perspective on the outcomes. We will provide you with detailed information on what to expect so you can be well-informed about your choices.

Understanding the Treatment Timeline

Understanding the treatment timeline helps you plan your body sculpting treatment. Some treatments may require multiple sessions and gradual results over weeks or months. We will outline the expected timeline for your specific treatment plan, so you know what to anticipate from start to finish.

The Treatment Process 

What to Expect From a Typical Session

All of our non-surgical body sculpting devices come with very little discomfort. Depending on the type of treatment, you may feel sensations such as warmth, cooling, or muscle contractions. You should arrive in comfortable clothing that is loose and provides access to the treatment area. During the process, we will always be on hand to adjust the treatment as necessary to make it more comfortable or effective.

Duration and Frequency of Treatments

The duration and frequency of body contouring treatments vary based on the specific method used and the areas being addressed. Most sessions last between 30 minutes and an hour, with some treatments requiring multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart. We will develop a customized schedule that fits your goals and ensures optimal results.

Post-Treatment Care and Maintenance

Immediate Aftercare Tips

After a non-surgical body contouring session, follow any of the aftercare tips we give you to maximize your results. Keep the treated area clean and avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures. You may experience mild redness or swelling, which is normal and subsides within a few hours to days. Make sure to hydrate well and give your body plenty of rest.

Recommended Physical Activities

Incorporating recommended physical activities can enhance your body sculpting results. Gentle exercises like walking, yoga, or light stretching can help maintain your improved body shape and promote overall well-being. Avoid strenuous activities for a few days post-treatment, but gradually reintroduce regular exercise as advised.

Enhancing and Enjoying Results

To enhance and enjoy the results of your non-invasive body contouring treatments, consider following a healthy lifestyle. Maintain a balanced diet that supports a stable weight and continue to stay hydrated to promote fat reduction and skin tightening effects. Regular follow-up sessions and a consistent skincare routine can further prolong and improve your body contouring outcomes.
