Body Sculpting

Body sculpting, or body contouring, is a non-surgical procedure used to remove or reduce stubborn fat in certain areas of the body. This process is sometimes called non-surgical fat reduction. There are various non-surgical body shaping techniques to help you quickly shape and contour your body to your heart’s desire.

What Is Body Sculpting?

Body contouring, body sculpting, or body shaping can eliminate extra fat as well as shape areas of the body and tighten skin. However, body shaping should not be used as a weight-loss solution.

There are various non-surgical body shaping options that use cold, heat, lasers, Mesotherapy, and other methods. Body shaping can also increase muscle strength which helps form a better and more fit-looking body.

What Are the Different Types of Body Shaping Treatments?

There is a number of various non-surgical treatments used to shape and contour the body without many side effects and with the guarantee that you’ll be satisfied by the end of the treatment. Here are some of the most popular and efficient body sculpting treatments:


Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive technique that works by injecting multiple solutions in a grid pattern at the site of fat accumulation. Mesotherapy injections contain deoxycholic acid, which helps break and dissolve fat by stimulating your body to absorb it.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved deoxycholic acid for medical treatment uses. The patient might need multiple sessions with at least two weeks separating each session from the one before.

Potential side effects of deoxycholic acid and other Mesotherapy injectables might include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Redness

Enzymes injections to help dissolve fat

This process involves using a combination of enzymes and then injecting them in different parts of the body to help dissolve the fat in that area. The enzymes used in this process are lipase, hyaluronidase, and collagenase.

Lipase is an enzyme that dissolves fat, hyaluronidase is an enzyme that helps decrease swelling and improve lymphatic drainage, and finally, collagenase is an enzyme that helps to tighten the skin.

The combination of the three enzymes is injected at multiple sites in the treated area in a grid pattern. The patient might need up to two sessions with two weeks separating them.

Possible side effects of the injections:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Pain
  • Redness

Eximia HR77 Premium

This is one of the best devices used for different types of medical treatments. Eximia uses four technologies together to focus on achieving the best possible results. These technologies consist of laser poration, endodermic massage, radiofrequency, and magnetic rollers.

To put it simply, the combination of those four different technologies helps reduce cellulite and gets rid of localized fat fast and efficiently. Moreover, the precise and focused non-surgical lipo reduction is able to guarantee a notable fat and cellulite volume reduction, and it is entirely safe.

The Eximia HR77 Premium device activates the lymphatic system of the human body in order to remove fat to be released the natural way, instead of suctioning it out.


Cryolipolysis, also known as fat freezing, is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses freezing cold temperature to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. The procedure is designed to reduce localized fat deposits or pockets that do not respond to diet and exercise. The fat reduction process happens through crystallization.

This procedure is FDA approved and is best for fat reduction in areas like beneath the chin, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, abdomen, hip, upper back, lower back, and underneath the buttocks.

BodyLab by Asclepion Laser Technologies

This is a modern technology used to strengthen the muscles and help shape the body. The BodyLab technology stimulates selective supramaximal activation of the muscle unit under the activation probe. This device uses FMS technology which depends on fast frequencies that focus on the supramaximal contractions, which can be sustained for a few seconds. As a result, the physiological stress required for the adaptation of the muscles increases and enhances profound modeling of the internal structure.

Increased muscle density and volume result in improved muscle definition and increased muscle tone. The increased density and definition of the muscle will result in a more fit-looking body.

Fractional Laser, Radio Frequency, Plasmage, HIFU

The abovementioned four techniques are used to tighten the skin. Each technology uses certain methods to help restore the skin to its tight, elastic, and toned nature.

The fractional laser delivers precise microbeams of laser light into the deep layers of skin, creating deep, narrow columns of tissue clotting. Clotted tissues in the treatment area stimulate a natural healing process that results in the fast growth of healthy new tissue.

As for radiofrequency therapy, it could help tighten loose skin on your body by stimulating the production of collagen. On the other hand, plasma treatment uses plasma energy to create controlled microthermal treatment zones, effectively removing micro-plugs of skin. The thermal effect stimulates collagen production, and as the skin heals, remodeling occurs, resulting in firmer, tighter, and more toned skin.

Finally, HIFU (High-intensity focused ultrasound) waves treatment is a non-invasive, painless treatment that uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer and more elastic, and toned skin.

Why Is Body Shaping Used?

Body shaping is usually used on specific areas of the body that do not get affected by diet and exercise. People choose to undergo body shaping to look more fit, thinner, or attain a certain desired body shape.

Body sculpting can target most areas of the body. However, these are the sites that are most common to get treated by body shaping techniques:

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Belly and flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Neck and chin
  • Thighs

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

This section aims to answer the most commonly and frequently asked questions regarding body shaping and sculpting.

Will these devices help me lose weight?

No, they do not. However, they will help you lose fat, measurements, and drop sizes, especially when combined with diet and exercise.

What is the best technique for me?

In order to know the answer to this question, you need to be evaluated by the doctor for assessment. After that, the doctor will determine the best technique for your condition and will also set a full schedule for your treatment.

How many sessions do I need?

The number of sessions that you might need will vary depending on the technique and the device used during your treatment. Moreover, the number of sessions also depends on your condition and the body area that you are treating.

Do I need to use one or multiple devices?

The answer to this question varies depending on the case. However, we usually prefer a combination of treatments that target multiple layers in the body.

How does body sculpting work?

Body shaping techniques use different types of energy to stimulate the body to absorb fat cells, which tightens the skin and shapes the body. The process of shaping the body takes around 3 to 4 months after the treatment. During this time is when most people see the full effect of the treatment.

Is body sculpting safe? Does it hurt?

Body sculpting is a non-invasive procedure that involves little to no pain. Side effects to body sculpting procedures are usually very minimal, consisting of minor pain, swelling, or a warm feeling on the treated area.

How should I prepare for body sculpting treatments?

There aren’t many things that you’re required to do prior to your body shaping treatment. However, there are a few simple things that our doctor recommends you do before coming in for your body contouring session, such as:

  • Drink plenty of water during the few days before your procedure because radiofrequency targets the water in fat cells; keeping hydrated before and after your session will help make the process more effective.
  • Avoid sunlight for a few days before the treatment so you can make sure that you don’t have to deal with any sunburns that affect your treatment.
  • Avoid wearing makeup or deodorant on your treatment area to avoid irritation in the skin during the procedure.
