Non-invasive body contouring has skyrocketed in popularity over the past several years. We can offer our Reston and DMV patients the most advanced solutions thanks to near-constant innovations in aesthetic medicine. You no longer need to worry about scarring or a prolonged recovery to achieve the body of your dreams. 

Read on to learn more about our leading non-invasive body contouring treatments and how they can bring you renewed confidence. 

What is Non-Invasive Body Contouring?

Before diving into specific treatments, let’s explain what sets non-invasive body contouring apart.

Non-invasive body contouring refers to non-surgical therapies designed to eliminate fat pockets and tighten skin. Instead of surgical methods, these treatments use clinically proven technologies like radiofrequency energy, ultrasound, and electromagnetic energy to target fat cells. 

As these treatments don’t involve incisions, anesthesia, or sutures, minimal downtime is required. This, along with a far lower risk of adverse effects, makesnon-invas non-invasive body contouring an attractive option for patients today. 

Top Reston Non-Invasive Body Contouring Treatments

At WellMedica in Reston, we offer an expansive range of body contouring treatments to suit our patients’ needs. Our leading options include:

Emsculpt Neo

Emsculpt Neo is the best non-invasive, no-downtime body contouring and sculpting procedure. It’s also the first (and only) treatment of its kind that combines radiofrequency heating (RF) and high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM+). Radiofrequency heating provides non-invasive fat reduction, while HIFEM+ strengthens and tones the targeted muscle groups. 

This innovative combination of technologies provides more significant fat reduction and muscle development than any other product, and the procedure takes just 30 minutes to complete. 

How Does Emsculpt Neo Work?

Emsculpt Neo involves using an applicator that simultaneously emits synchronized RF energy and HIFEM+.

  • The RF heating increases the muscles’ temperature, priming them for stress exposure. Within just 4 minutes, the subcutaneous fat temperature rises to apoptosis or cell death. The fat cells are then destroyed and will be gradually removed by the body within a few weeks.  
  • HIFEM+ contracts 100% of the muscle fibers in the treatment area. This reaches intensities that aren’t attainable in voluntary workouts, causing the number and growth of muscle fibers to increase significantly. 

Clinical studies show that Emsculpt Neo provides an average 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and a 25% muscle volume increase in the treated area. 

Am I a Candidate for Emsculpt Neo?

Emsculpt Neo is suitable for patients up to BMI 35, making it an accessible treatment for a broad range of patients. It may be the right fit for you if you’re seeking fat reduction, muscle enhancement, and tighter skin in one or more of the following treatment areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Calves 

Emsculpt Neo Treatment Process

Dr. Dima typically recommends four 30-minute sessions, scheduled five to 10 days apart, for the best results from Emsculpt Neo. However, this sequence can be adjusted to fit your unique needs. 

Morpheus8 Body

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary tissue remodeling procedure that is entirely non-surgical and safe for all skin types. The unique device pairs microneedling with radiofrequency fractional technology to tighten loose skin and diminish excess fat. It’s also the first and only FDA-approved technology for deep subdermal adipose tissue remodeling, or SARD.

How Does Morpheus8 Body Work?

The Morpheus8 device contains a matrix of tiny micropins coated in a protective layer. Much like in microneedling, this matrix is inserted into the skin, reaching the subdermal layer. With 4 to 8 mm of depth, the Morpheus8 Body device penetrates deeper into the skin than any other treatment on the market. 

Once the micropins are inserted into the treatment area, the device emits controlled radiofrequency energy. RF energy safely heats the tissue to reduce excess fat and remodel the skin, leaving it tighter than before. 

The combination of the micropins and RF energy used in the Morpheus8 treatment also stimulates collagen and elastin production deep within the skin. These proteins give the skin strength and structure, giving it a firmer appearance.  

Am I a Candidate for Morpheus8 Body?

Morpheus8 Body is safe to use on all skin types and tones. It can treat many body areas, including the abdomen, buttocks, legs, arms, chest, and neck.

Morpheus8 Treatment Process

Dr. Dima often recommends three to five Morpheus8 Body treatments spaced three to four weeks apart. However, this may be adjusted to suit your particular needs. With minimal downtime required, Morpheus8 Body sessions can fit into a busy schedule with minimal disruption. 

UltraShape Power

UltraShape Power is one of today’s most exciting new non-invasive body contouring treatments. At WellMedica, we’re thrilled to be the first provider in the Virginia, Mayland, and District of Columbia area to offer it!

As the first and only FDA-cleared non-surgical fat reduction procedure with up to 32% fat reduction, UltraShape Power can provide more fat loss than any of the industry’s comparable treatments. It uses pulsed-focused ultrasound technology to eradicate fat cells quickly and comfortably, with noticeable results in just a few weeks. 

How Does UltraShape Power Work?

The UltraShape Power device emits focused, pulsed ultrasound energy waves to the targeted area. It rapidly changes pressure waves, which causes the fat cells in the area to rupture. These cells release triglycerides that the liver absorbs and naturally processes. 

The surrounding tissues, nerves, and muscles are left unaffected by UltraShape Power. Your body will naturally remove the targeted fat cells in as little as two weeks after the treatment, improving your physique quickly. 

Am I a Candidate for UltraShape Power?

UltraShape Power is a safe, effective option for most individuals looking to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat or genetically acquired trouble spots. The device is primarily used for the abdomen, love handles, and thighs. 

Keep in mind that UltraShape Power isn’t intended for significant weight loss. But, it’s an excellent solution for eliminating small areas of stubborn fat or that last 10 pounds in your weight loss journey. 

UltraShape Power is pain-free and requires no recovery time. Most of our patients find the treatment process to be a pleasant, even relaxing experience. 

UltraShape Power Treatment Process

The general recommendation for UltraShape Power is three treatments spaced two weeks apart. Each session generally lasts between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. 

Venus Legacy

Venus Legacy uses multi-polar radiofrequency energy and pulsed electromagnetic fields to tighten skin, diminish cellulite, and firm areas of excess fat. The cutting-edge device is entirely non-invasive and provides an immediate improvement in the treatment area. 

How Does Venus Legacy Work?

Venus Legacy uses slight suction to pull the targeted tissue into the machine. Once in place, it administers radiofrequency and pulsed magnetic fields to form a heat matrix. The heat triggers the tissue’s natural healing process, causing it to contract. The administered energy also reaches the targeted fat cells deep within the tissue, leading to a reduction in stubborn fat without the need for incisions or significant downtime. 

The radiofrequency energy used in Venus Legacy treatment ramps up collagen, elastin, and fibroblast production in the targeted tissue. As your body produces new protein fibers in the weeks following your session, your skin will become tighter, firmer, and smoother. 

The suction used in Venus Legacy is adjustable, ensuring your comfort throughout the treatment. As the device pulls the tissue upward, radiofrequency energy can penetrate more deeply into the tissue. The suction also boosts blood flow to the targeted tissue, providing nutrients and oxygen for an immediate glow. 

Am I a Candidate for Venus Legacy?

Venus Legacy is safe for all skin types and highly comfortable, making it a good choice for many individuals who want to sculpt areas of stubborn fat. Many patients compare it to a calming hot stone massage! It can be used on many body areas, including the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs, and is even effective on cellulite. 

Also, like all of the treatments featured in this article, it requires no downtime. So, it’s a convenient option, even for those with hectic schedules. 

Venus Legacy Treatment Process

The number of Venus Legacy sessions required to meet your goals will depend on the treatment area and your skin type. Dr. Dima will provide a customized treatment plan, but many of our Reston patients need eight sessions at least a week apart.
