Common Body Contouring Treatments

There are different types of body contouring procedures that can shape your body and reduce loose skin appearance — including surgical and non-surgical procedures. Most commonly, body contouring procedures can be used to target the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms

The most common non-invasive body contouring treatments include:


Coolsculpting is a great treatment option for those who have not been able to achieve their ideal image with exercise and diet alone. While weight loss causes fat cells to shrink, CoolSculpting gets rid of fat cells entirely. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling substances to freeze fat cells within the body, causing a decrease in the total amount of fat in the target area of your body.

This treatment is effective for men and women of all ages, especially on the abdomen, chin, arms, sides, and thighs.

From the makers of CoolSculpting, CoolTone™ technology utilizes magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to tone and sculpt your muscles. Using an applicator, the treatment utilizes coil electromagnetic MMS pulses that will penetrate your skin and fat layers to reach your muscles.

CoolTone™ is a non-surgical, non-invasive, and painless procedure, but it is performed differently and involves no freezing. This process induces involuntary muscle contractions, which causes the body to strengthen.

CoolTone™ is beneficial in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Inner/Outer Thighs

VelaShape Body Contouring & Cellulite Reduction

This procedure focuses on shrinking fat cells and improving skin texture in the desired area of the body. VelShape treatments use infrared and bi-polar frequencies to treat the skin in short, non-invasive appointments.

After the session is complete, the body’s fat cells will begin to metabolize. The only minor effects of this treatment are possible warmth or redness in the treated area.
