2020 Body Contouring Trends
Authored by: Dr. Bruce Katz
There are more nonsurgical body contouring procedures than ever before. If you’re looking for a minimally invasive solution to achieve the beautiful figure you desire, you have a wide range of options. The right treatment for you will depend on your unique needs and goals.
At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we carefully vet all of the latest procedures in order to ensure we offer the most advanced body contouring solutions available. As nonsurgical body sculpting treatments have increased in popularity, we’ve found that a few stand out as being extremely effective. We expect to see the following procedures trending over the upcoming year.
SmartLipo provides you with a minimally invasive alternative to liposuction, allowing you to achieve excellent body sculpting results with significantly less downtime than is required with a surgical procedure. During traditional liposuction, a tumescent fluid is injected into the treatment area to facilitate the breakup of fat, making it easier to remove. SmartLipo improves on this technique by using laser energy to break up the fat.
The laser used with SmartLipo liquefies the fat cells in the treatment region, facilitating their removal. In addition, the heat energy generated by the laser stimulates collagen production in your skin, providing smoother, firmer, more consistent results. SmartLipo also provides important skin tightening benefits that aren’t achieved by traditional liposuction.
Other benefits of SmartLipo include:
- Shorter and more comfortable treatment
- Smooth, refined contours
- Minimal downtime and extremely short (two-day) recovery
- Beautiful, long-lasting results
- Decreased risk of complications compared to traditional liposuction
SmartLipo can be used to treat just about any area of the body where you have stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to your diet and exercise efforts:
- Chest (as part of a male breast reduction procedure)
- Lower legs
Emsculpt is the only nonsurgical body contouring solution that simultaneously builds muscle and burns fat. As a result, it is able to deliver results that far surpass what can be accomplished by other fat removal techniques.
High-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology triggers rapid muscle contractions in the treatment region. During a half-hour procedure, you may experience up to 20,000 muscle contractions, a total that is significantly greater than can be achieved during exercise. These muscle contractions stimulate a process that eliminates fat and builds muscle in the treatment region.
Benefits of Emsculpt include:
- Short treatments (schedule an appointment for your lunch break and then return to work)
- Precise control over muscle building and fat burning processes
- No recovery or downtime
- Painless treatment
- Dramatic body sculpting results
Emsculpt can be used to treat the following areas of your body:
- Calf muscles
SculpSure is a nonsurgical laser body contouring procedure that uses hyperthermic energy to heat fat cells and the surrounding tissue in the treatment region. This process causes the agitated fat cells to be naturally released and removed from your body, leaving the area firm and flat. Fat cells eliminated by SculpSure will not return.
In addition, the heat generated by this procedure will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the treatment region, helping to restore young, healthy skin. This truly noninvasive body contouring solution provides an effective alternative to minimally invasive options such as SmartLipo.
Benefits of SculpSure include:
- Ability to treat up to four areas of the body simultaneously
- Customizable treatment plan
- No discomfort
- Noninvasive fat removal solution
- Short (25 minute) treatment session
- No downtime
- Permanent fat removal results
SculpSure can treat unwanted fat in the following areas:
- Love handles
- Chin (to eliminate the appearance of a double chin)
