It may seem intimidating to undergo a surgical procedure to get the perfect body, but at Jiva Med Spa, there are plenty of safe, non-invasive body contouring alternatives.

A Shortcut to Get into Tip-Top Shape Sometimes, no matter how much you exercise and diet, your body still doesn’t look the way you want it to. People considering body contouring often see only one side of it – the most popular surgical procedures such as liposuction tend to overshadow the variety of non-invasive options that come with less cost and little to no down time. In actuality, there are many nonsurgical body contouring procedures available on the market, with incredible advantages to consider. What is Body Contouring? According to the Cleveland Clinic, body contouring is a fat reduction method used to shape and tighten specific areas of skin on the body. Nonsurgical procedures are commonly referred to as “lipolysis” and use different techniques such as lasers to heat and cool, injections, or radio waves treatments that destroy fat cells. Most methods can be organized by the following categories: Cryo-lipolysis: Uses controlled cooling to lower the body’s natural temperature to freeze and eliminate fat cells. CoolSculpting Elite Laser lipolysis: Uses controlled heating via lasers. Venus Legacy truSculpt iD Radiofrequency lipolysis: Uses a combination of heating and ultrasound technology to target fatty areas. EmSculpt Neo Z Wave Q Injection lipolysis: Uses a medical treatment injected just under the skin to break down cells, often under the chin. Cellfina Lipolysis is best for small fat deposits in targeted areas, especially stubborn fatty tissue that doesn’t disappear with regular exercise and healthy eating. Most patients can undergo lipolysis within a quick 30 – 60-minute session and recover much faster than they would from a surgical procedure. What Are the Benefits? After consulting with a physician, a surgical procedure may be the best solution, especially when a patient has lost a lot of weight and needs to get rid of extra skin. However, surgeries often come with significant risks and possible complications like infection, cardiac issues, and damage to internal organs. Results can have more of an immediate impact, but also require a longer recovery period. For those who are simply looking for a safer alternative to sculpt certain fatty areas of the body and tighten sagging skin from natural aging, lipolysis is the perfect option. Plus, these non-invasive treatments tend to cost far less than surgical procedures. For example, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons listed the average cost of surgical liposuction around $3,500 according to their 2020 statistics! The list of nonsurgical procedures available is getting longer and longer as medical professionals in the cosmetic industry make new discoveries thanks to thorough research, careful testing, and emerging technologies. Many of these medical treatments help people achieve smoother skin, lose weight, and feel more confident in their own bodies. Treatments To Explore at Jiva Med Spa So, what are some of the top non-invasive treatments available today? Although body contouring is a choice based on personal preference, there are plenty of versatile procedures to learn about that are on the market. Most Popular: EmSculpt Neo This is the only body contouring procedure that simultaneously reduces fat and builds muscle, accomplishing two therapies in a single 30-minute session. EmSculpt Neo emits a synchronized radiofrequency (RF) heating and high intensity electromagnetic energy that targets fat cells in the abdomen, buttocks, calves, and arms. Patients describe the procedure feeling like a hot stone massage with intense muscle contractions. The goal is to stimulate muscle growth and flush dead fat cells out of the body, with patients experiencing an average of 30% fat reduction overall. Not to mention 60% of women and 90% of men are invested in contouring and muscle toning treatments and EmSculpt Neo can do both! This is a great example of RF lipolysis, where the procedure is simple, painless, and you can immediately return to your daily activities. Newest Technology: CoolSculpting Elite We’ve upgraded to the most cutting-edge machines that can freeze twice the amount of fat! One of the most recent cryo-lipolysis procedures in the cosmetic industry, CoolSculpting Elite freezes fat cells without damaging surrounding skin. Whatever areas need attention most (under the chin, abdomen, thighs, and more), this FDA-approved cooling technology permanently removes fat cells and naturally sheds them through the body’s metabolism process. CoolSculpting Elite can help reduce 20-25% of targeted fat, with each session lasting around 1 hour. It’s so easy and non-invasive, you can schedule an appointment during the day and go right back to work without any risk. Cellfina Address the structural cause of cellulite with this FDA-cleared injection lipolysis treatment. Cellfina uses a small needle-like device to loosen the connective bands in fat tissue. Once pressure is released from these bands, the skin redistributes itself back to its original state, smoothing out any lumps and dimples. Cellfina is safe for people of all ages and patients have satisfaction rates that are higher than any other cellulite treatment. Results are noticeable in as little as 3 days and can last up to three years! truSculpt Whether you approach body contouring in terms of fat reduction or muscle sculpting, truSculpt delivers both options. truSculpt iD is a fat reduction technique that uses therapeutic RF energy to kill off fat cells over a 12-week time frame, with zero downtime or side effects. For toning various muscle groups, truSculpt flex uses multi-directional electric stimulation to increase strength and enhance muscle tone. Each 45-minute session replicates crunches, squats, and twisting motions for a total body “workout” with minimal soreness. This non-invasive treatment is an especially good match for athletic men and women who want to take their fitness goals to the next level. Venus Legacy Venus Legacy is an FDA-approved device that uses patented 4D technology that is made up of a combination of multi-polar RF and pulsed magnetic fields. Together, this heating technology creates a thermal reaction in the body that causes the skin to tighten and contract. This treatment is perfect for softening wrinkles and reducing cellulite in the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and more. Best of all, the procedure can take less than 30 minutes and feels similar to a warm massage. Multiple sessions are recommended for optimal results. Z Wave Q To reduce the appearance of cellulite, increase blood flow, and stimulate collagen, Z Wave Q treatments are highly effective. This extra-quiet device emits a radial pulse that is extremely precise, yet gentle on the body. It’s the ideal add-on treatment that enhances the effects of other body contouring procedures.
