Achieving Your Ideal Shape with Body Contouring After Weight Loss

Being active and eating healthy goes a long way towards staying in shape and feeling confident about your appearance. However, as we age it can get harder to maintain the body we crave. This is when non-surgical body contouring treatments can be ideal solutions. Today, MedSkincare Laser Centre will be exploring tips for achieving your ideal shape with body contouring after weight loss. 

If you are working hard to shed those extra pounds or you have already reached your ideal weight, it is possible to maximize your efforts for the silhouette you desire with body contouring.

What is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

Non-surgical body contouring is a treatment that requires no surgical incisions, no anesthesia, no pain medications and no needles. This also means no recovery time! Today’s body contouring procedures effectively reduce or remove stubborn pockets of fat to shape and contour the body. Instead of surgery, these procedures are done with applicators or handheld devices placed on the skin.

At MedSkincare Laser Centre, we offer three body contouring treatments that yield lasting results like SculpSure, TempSure and FlexSure.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is the world’s first FDA cleared hyperthermic laser for non-invasive lipolysis or body contouring treatment designed to reduce stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It offers a way to achieve a more sculpted appearance without the need for surgery, incisions or downtime.

How It Works

SculpSure employs advanced laser technology to pinpoint and gently heat fat cells in specific body areas. During the session, specialized applicators are strategically positioned on target areas, delivering precise laser energy. This process elevates the temperature of adipose fat cells between 42 and 47C , causing damage to the structural integrity of the fat cells and eventual elimination by the body’s natural lymphatic system over the following weeks and the volume of fat in the treated area will therefore decrease.

Results become more noticeable within six to twelve weeks post-treatment, though individual responses may vary and multiple sessions may be necessary. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, is essential to maximize and prolong the benefits of SculpSure treatments.

Treatment Areas

SculpSure is intended for non-invasive lipolysis to target various areas of the body with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or less:

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple calculation used to assess whether a person has a healthy body weight for a given height. Here’s how it works without a BMI calculator. First, weigh yourself using a scale. Make sure you know your weight in kilograms. If you know your weight in pounds, divide it by 2.2 to get your weight in kilograms. Next, measure your height in meters. If you know your height in inches, multiply the number of inches by 0.0254 to get your height in meters. If you know your height in feet and inches, first convert it all to inches (multiply the number of feet by 12 and add any extra inches), then multiply by 0.0254. 

Once you have your weight in kilograms and your height in meters, you divide your weight by your height squared (height multiplied by itself). That number represents your BMI.  There are various SMI charts posted online, so you can determine if you’re in a healthy range for your age, weight and height.

Abdomen

This treatment is often used for abdominal fat reduction and a slimmer waistline.

Flanks (Love Handles)

SculpSure can address love handles or flank fat for a more contoured waist and hip area.

Thighs

If you are wanting to reduce thigh circumference and create a more toned appearance, SculpSure may be right for you.

Back

Even with diet and exercise, fatty deposits in the upper or lower back can be hard to tone, so body contouring can help you achieve a smoother and sculpted back profile.

Chin (Submental Fat)

SculpSure is also intended for non-invasive lipolysis of the submental(double chin) area  in individuals with a BMI of 49 or less. The device can also affect the appearance of lax tissue in the submental area.

TempSure Envi

TempSure Envi utilizes advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology to minimize facial lines and wrinkles, tighten skin without injection, surgery or downtime. TempSure Envi treatment can stimulate collagen production while simultaneously heating fat cells. This dual-action approach helps tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite, resulting in a smoother and more toned body contour.

TempSure Envi is safe for all skin types so it fits into any beauty maintenance routine, any time of the year.

How It Works

During a TempSure treatment session, a specialized handpiece is gently rolled over the targeted area. This handpiece delivers controlled RF energy deep into the skin, where it gently heats the tissue. The heating process triggers the body’s natural response to produce new collagen fibers, which helps improve skin elasticity and firmness over time. The new collagen fibres are tight, dense and neatly organized giving younger and tighter looking skin.

In addition to stimulating collagen production, the RF energy also heats and disrupts fat cells in the treatment area. As the fat cells are exposed to the controlled heat, they undergo a process called apoptosis, where they are gradually broken down and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. This leads to a reduction in the volume of fat cells and an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

One of the key features of TempSure is its ability to deliver heat in a consistent and gradual manner. This ensures that the treatment is comfortable and safe, with clients often describing a spa-like, deep warming sensation during their sessions. 

Target Areas for Contouring

TempSure can be done on any problem area of the face or the body to help you achieve your ideal shape, including the abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs and legs. The treatment is highly customizable, allowing for precise adjustment of the RF energy levels to target the specific needs of each individual patient.

FlexSure

FlexSure is a cutting-edge body boost contouring treatment that helps you achieve a more youthful appearance. Flexsure is designed to curve and conform to your body by targeting hardest -to-treat-areas. Flexsure utilizes advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology to target stubborn fat deposits. The treatment is designed to be both convenient and effective, offering patients a non-invasive solution for sculpting their bodies without the need for surgery.

How It Works

The technology behind FlexSure involves deep tissue Flex-heating, which delivers controlled RF energy to the targeted areas of the body. This energy penetrates deep into the skin and underlying tissues, gently heating them to therapeutic levels. The unique Flex-heating technology ensures that the heat is distributed evenly throughout the treatment area, maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment while minimizing discomfort.

FlexSure’s flexible peel & stick, form-fitting applicator is designed to curve and conform to the contours of your body, allowing for precise and comfortable treatment of even the most challenging areas. The flexibility ensures that the RF energy is delivered exactly where it’s needed most, providing optimal results with minimal discomfort. This makes it an ideal treatment for body contouring after weight loss to help you achieve your ideal shape. 

Where It Can Be Used

FlexSure is highly versatile and can be used to target stubborn fat in a variety of areas, including the abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs, and knees. While it is not a substitute for traditional weight loss methods, FlexSure can complement weight loss efforts by addressing specific areas of stubborn fat that may be resistant to other treatments.
