Stubborn belly fat is something that so many of us struggle with. Whether you’ve recently lost a bunch of weight or you’re looking for a way to tone this part of your body, body sculpting is something to consider. This non-invasive procedure has been around for a while but has continued to gain popularity. In today’s blog post, the team at Your Contour Cosmetic Centers is going to tell you a little bit more about what body sculpting is and how it works. Let’s get started!

What Is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting is a non-invasive treatment that destroys fat cells. Depending on your body and the area that is going to be worked on, there are a variety of ways that this procedure could be done. At times, the procedure includes freezing fat cells while other instances, body sculpting is done by penetrating heat through radiofrequency or ultrasound technology. Over time, this procedure is designed to help burn these fat cells and better sculpt your body.

Where can body sculpting be done?

While the belly area is definitely one of the more common places that people turn to body sculpting for, it’s certainly not the only part of the body that this treatment can be done. In reality, any area with high amounts of fat can be treated. Some of the areas that we also perform body sculpting on include the thighs, upper arms, and butt. 

What does this process entail?

As we mentioned earlier, there are a few different ways that body sculpting can be done. Keep reading to get a better idea of the various approaches taken to complete body sculpting. 

Cool Sculpting

As the title suggests, cool sculpting incorporates cold temperatures to sculpt the body. With the help of cold temperatures, this approach helps to freeze fat cells. With the help of a suction vacuum, the cold temperature is applied to the desired area. The fat cells are then frozen until they crystallize. 

Heat Sculpting

On the other end of the spectrum, there is heat sculpting. This treatment incorporates a laser that can penetrate deep enough to damage fat cells. At this point, the body can then eliminate the fat cells. This is not always used on all parts of the body, so it’s good to look into it more if there’s a specific part of your body that you want to have sculpted.

Ultrasound Sculpting

Ultrasound technology is being used more and more, and for a good reason. This procedure uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells. Primarily applied on the stomach, the vibrations of this method can provide some incredible results when used for a sequence of treatments.
