Body Sculpting or Body Contouring - What is the Difference?
As we all know, our bodies have a lot to do with how we feel about ourselves. For many people, having a toned and fit look is a vital facet of feeling attractive and confident. Unfortunately, it can be a struggle to keep weight under control.
Body sculpting and body contouring are two popular methods of enhancing your appearance. They are often confused with each other, but there are some key differences.
- Body contouring generally refers to a category of cosmetic procedures that involves lasers, ultrasound energy, or radiofrequency energy to reduce, slim, and sculpt a fatty area. It is a non-invasive treatment that does not require surgery.
- Body sculpting refers to a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the body. It is used to improve the shape and contour of the body and is often performed on those who have lost a significant amount of weight and have been left with excess skin and stubborn pockets of fat.
What is body contouring?
There are now several different ways to achieve the physique you want, without having to go through surgery or spend your free time working out, month after month. One such method is body contouring using radiofrequency technology. This approach uses Alma Unipolar’s Accent Prime™ platform, which employs sophisticated radiofrequency technology to heat up the skin and underlying tissue. This heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract, for a visibly more toned and sculpted figure.
What can be treated with body contouring?
Radiofrequency body contouring can also be used to slim and tone problem areas such as
- Love handles
By heating the tissue and breaking down fat cells, radiofrequency body contouring can help you achieve your desired figure, with no surgery required.
What are some of the benefits of body contouring?
Radiofrequency body contouring is an effective way to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Skin rejuvenation
- Skin tightening
- Face and neck contouring
- Scar treatment
Radiofrequency waves heat the tissue below the surface of the skin, causing collagen fibers to contract. This results in tighter, smoother skin with a more youthful appearance.
Body sculpting vs body contouring, which is right for me?
Body sculpting and body contouring are two popular procedures that can help patients achieve their desired body shape.
- Body contouring is a minimally invasive procedure that uses ultrasound energy to target and destroys fat cells. The treated area could look much smoother and more toned with this advanced procedure.
- Body sculpting, on the other hand, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the treated area. This can be an ideal option for patients who have undergone significant weight loss or who are concerned about loose, sagging skin.
While both procedures can produce excellent results, the right choice for each patient will depend on their individual goals and expectations.
Is there a long recovery for body sculpting and contouring?
Body contouring has a minimal recovery period and is less invasive than body contouring. However, body sculpting may be the right option for patients who need to remove large amounts of excess skin or fat. With Alma’s Accent Prime, there is no recovery, downtime, or side effects.
