Most Americans aren’t happy with the way they look. They might be worried about excess fat deposits, cellulite, saggy skin, or wrinkles. Here at Clearskin Institute of Laser Aesthetics in Phoenix, AZ, we can help you address all of these issues with our innovative body contouring methods. Today, we’ll have a closer look at what your options are and whether you’re a good candidate.
Although everyone benefits from leading a healthy lifestyle and getting plenty of exercise, this alone isn’t always enough to achieve the perfect body shape. In fact, many people struggle with cellulite, stubborn pockets of fat, and other issues. Fortunately, there are many ways of contouring the body and improving its shape or appearance.
Some of the most popular options include Emtone, Emsculpt, Exilis RF, ZWave, Emsella, SkinTyte, and Styku 3D Body Imaging. Depending on your current condition and your goals, we might recommend one treatment or a combination of these options.
Emtone is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that uses both thermal and mechanical energy to increase blood flow to the target area, restore the skin’s elasticity, diminish fat chambers, remodel collagen fibers, and remove metabolic waste. It is suitable for almost anyone, no matter the patient’s skin tone or BMI. Most people need four Emtone sessions, each around two weeks apart. Because the treatment isn’t invasive, no downtime is required.
Just like Emtone, Emsculpt uses thermal energy, but as well as removing cellulite, this treatment tightens and tones the skin. As a result, the patient appears slimmer and shapelier. This method can be used to treat various areas of the body, including the thighs, belly, buttocks, upper arms, and love handles. You should expect to participate in 2-4 Emsculpt treatments, each around two weeks apart.
Exilis is a skin tightening treatment that makes use of radiofrequency energy to remove fat and tighten the skin on the face, neck, or body. After four treatments, you can expect smoother skin, and your fat cells will be reduced. Because the treatment isn’t invasive, you won’t have to spend a lot of time resting after your session, and you can resume your normal activities straight away. This is the biggest advantage over other options like the surgical facelift.
ZWave, also called radial pulse therapy, reduces cellulite and stubborn pockets of fat with the help of sound waves. It can also be used to treat other skin conditions, including scarring and stretch marks. In the months after your ZWave sessions, your body will produce more collagen, which allows the skin to appear healthier, more youthful, and more elastic. One of the best things about ZWave is that most patients don’t feel any pain during their sessions.
Emsella is an innovative method that allows the patient to be treated risk-free. At the clinic, you will simply sit in a device that looks like a chair, and electromagnetic technology will stimulate your pelvic floor muscles. As a result, sexual health problems and incontinence can be reduced significantly. Most people find that the benefits last for about six months, so this is a long-lasting and effective treatment.
If you’re looking for an alternative to plastic surgery, SkinTite could be right for you. It uses infrared energy to tone and tighten your skin, so you appear more youthful. The device can be used on various areas of the body, and it is suitable for all skin types. After treatment, the body’s natural healing processes are triggered and you will notice a continual improvement in the condition of your skin for several weeks or months.
If you’re worried about your body composition, the first step towards a permanent solution might be finding out exactly where you stand. Styku 3D body imaging can do exactly that. It is an advanced camera that can take accurate measurements and give you insight into your body profile. It allows you to find out your body fat percentage and makes it easier to track your progress over time.
When you first arrive at the clinic, you will take part in a consultation with us. We can explain each treatment and suggest the ones that are appropriate for you. Together, we will then come up with a treatment plan. Depending on the chosen method, you might need 2-6 sessions, each 2-4 weeks apart. Most contouring appointments take between 30-60 minutes, and they are minimally invasive, so you can drive yourself home. You’ll be able to do almost all your regular activities straight away, but we might advise you to keep the treatment area away from direct sunlight, use certain kinds of cosmetic products, or maintain healthy habits such as eating nutritious foods and drinking plenty of water. Once your course of treatment is over, you might have to come in for maintenance sessions every 3-12 months.
Almost anyone can benefit from contouring treatments. Most patients are between the ages of 30 and 50 when they come to the clinic for the first time, but you can book an appointment at any age. Although some lasers used to be problematic for certain skin colors, the technology has improved significantly. People of every hair and skin color can now get treated by devices that use radiofrequency, thermal, and mechanical energy.
If you have a severe medical condition, you will need to speak to your doctor about getting treated. Our contouring methods are safe for almost everyone, but you might have to delay your sessions if you’re taking certain medications or if your body is slow to heal. It’s also important to note that most of the above-named methods aren’t suitable for women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
