Why Non-Surgical Body Contouring?
There is little reason for most people to turn to surgical cosmetic treatments today. As minimally invasive to non-invasive treatments continue to grow in popularity and technology advances, many people find that they can achieve lasting results without needing to go under a knife.
Body contouring procedures seek to reduce the fat cells in your body. Every human body contains a certain amount of fat cells that won’t increase as you get older. The cells themselves grow as you begin to gain weight. By melting, freezing, or even removing these cells, many people can experience weight loss and the best body sculpting results by simply reducing the amount of fat cells in their body – especially in the more stubborn areas. At WellMedica, we utilize top-of-the-line and unique non-surgical methods to reduce fat cells and help melt unwanted fat, tighten skin, and make you feel like the real you!
If you are considering non-invasive treatments, there are many benefits to consider:
Convenience: Because these treatments are non-invasive, you can return to your normal activities as soon as the procedure is over!
Risks and side effects: It is very unlikely for anyone to experience any severe or adverse side effects with these treatments. Occasionally there may be a slight burning sensation, however, only slight short-term side effects have been reported such as mild erythema and swelling.
Cost: For many, non-invasive body contouring procedures may be more cost-effective. However, it is important to discuss cost with your provider, as more than one treatment may be required to achieve your aesthetic results.
Types of Body Contouring Procedures
UltraShape PowerUltraShape® is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive, body shaping procedure that uses focused, pulsed ultrasound for selective fat destruction. The UltraShape procedure targets and instantly destroys stubborn fat without discomfort or downtime. UltraShape® delivers ultrasound energy directly into the stubborn fat below your skin’s surface. Rapidly changing pressure waves create vapor cavities in the fat cells. This stresses the fat cell membranes, causing them to rupture—all while leaving the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels unharmed.
ThermiTightThermiTight™ is formally described as “thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening,” which basically means that regulated heat is targeted at the collagen layer of the skin. To get under the skin, the ThermiRF™ system is used along with a tiny probe, called the SmartTip™ thermistor probe, which is inserted just below the surface. Dr. Dima Ali delivers radio frequency energy into the area through gentle movements, which heats the subdermal tissue to a specific internal temperature. She uses the Thermal Image Guidance™ to monitor external temperatures and ensure the safety of the skin. Most procedures last less than an hour, and are followed up with a gentle wrap. As for downtime post-ThermiTight treatment, you should be able to resume normal activities as early as the next day.

KybellaKYBELLA® Injections are the new FDA approved drug, used to improve the appearance of one’s double chin. The fat below the chin is called “submental fat” and can leave someone feeling self conscious or embarrassed.
Sculptra® AestheticSculptra® Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen,an underlying cause of facial aging,for results that can last more than two years. At WellMedica, we use Sculptra to fill in dimples, hollowness, and creases to create a fuller, more voluminous butt with injections! This is why we like to call it our “Sculptra BBL”, the nonsurgical Brazilian Butt Lift. Having a minimally invasive alternative to other more intense, surgical options is a great choice for someone who doesn’t want a long recovery time! It is important to understand that Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, not a dermal filler. This means that the Sculptra itself is not providing the filling. Sculptra causes a reaction in the skin which forms new collagen. Sculptra itself is absorbed by the surrounding tissue and is gone about 1-2 years after your treatment, but the new collagen which is left behind can last many more years!
