What is body contouring?

Body contouring refers to cosmetic procedures that involve sculpting and reshaping the body by targeting specific areas with excess fat or loose skin. It encompasses various noninvasive and minimally invasive techniques designed to enhance body proportions, reduce fat pockets, tighten skin, and improve overall body shape.

How does Kybella work for body contouring?

Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that eliminates issues such as a double chin, love handles, and fat around the bra area. It contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that aids in breaking down your fat. 

For example, when injecting Kybella into the targeted area of your double chin, the treatment destroys fat cells, gradually refining your jawline contour. 

It typically takes two to three sessions to achieve your desired results, which you’ll typically notice in a few weeks once your body finishes naturally eliminating the treated fat cells,

How does EmSculpt® NEO work for body contouring?

EmSculpt NEO is an advanced body contouring technology that combines radiofrequency (RF) heating and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy. This FDA-cleared, noninvasive treatment simultaneously reduces fat and builds muscle, making it an effective solution for enhancing muscle tone and reducing fat in specific areas.

It can treat areas such as your:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Arms

The RF energy heats the targeted tissues, preparing them for exposure to the HIFEM energy, which induces powerful muscle contractions and triggers fat metabolism. 

You can see results after 4-6 sessions; the treatment doesn’t require downtime.

Are there other types of body contouring?

Along with EmSculpt NEO and Kybella, YA Aesthetics offers:

RF microneedling

RF microneedling lifts and tightens the skin while coagulating fat in the deeper dermal layers, minimizing the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, and loose skin.

Ultrasound therapy

This procedure, also called ultrasonic cavitation, uses ultrasound energy to break down and remove fat cells beneath the skin. It also produces a tightening effect for a smoother, slimmer appearance.

How long do body contouring results last?

Once your fat cells are destroyed or reduced, they typically don’t return or accumulate in the treated areas. However, new fat cells can develop if you have significant weight fluctuations or lack proper diet and exercise. To significantly prolong and maintain the results of your body contouring treatments, maintain a balanced lifestyle that includes moving your body regularly and eating a healthy diet.
