Noninvasive Body Sculpting Treatments to Get You Ready for Swimsuit Season

It’s never too early to start prepping your body for the summer swimsuit season, and Northwest EndoSurgical can help. Dr. Matthew St. Laurent is a body sculpting specialist and can help you get rid of stubborn fat deposits in your belly, thighs, and hips that you can’t eliminate through a healthy diet or exercise.

What is body sculpting?

Noninvasive body sculpting treatments help you transform your body into beach-bound condition. Body sculpting technologies use heat or cold to target stubborn fat cells. These technologies destroy the cells permanently, and your body removes them naturally through your lymphatic system. Body sculpting systems are powerful, yet still safe for your skin.

What are the benefits of body sculpting?

The procedure has many benefits, including reliable results. You won’t have to worry about incisions or visible scarring when you step into your swimsuit. All of the body sculpting treatment options Dr. St. Laurent offers won’t cause you pain or health complications. The noninvasive procedures don’t require days or weeks of recovery, so you can get back to your normal routine as soon as possible.

Which body sculpting options are available?

Dr. St. Laurent relies on two of the most effective body sculpting technologies available: CoolSculpting® and the truSculpt® 3D system. Each offers their own advantages for getting you swimsuit-ready.

Understanding CoolSculpting technology

CoolSculpting, developed by Zeltiq™, is an FDA-cleared procedure that uses a patented cooling process to kill fat cells below the skin’s surface. The cold treatment crystallizes (freezes) the cells, and then they’re naturally eliminated by your body over the course of a few weeks. Because the technology is designed to target only fat cells, the surrounding tissues and your skin are left unharmed.

It will take several weeks to see optimal results, but over time your body continues to eliminate the dead cells and the contour of your figure becomes slimmer and smoother.

Understanding truSculpt 3D technology

The truSculpt 3D system was developed by Cutera®. The technology uses radiofrequency (RF) energy that targets fat cells in your belly, thighs, arms, and hips. It’s a noninvasive procedure, requiring no anesthesia, incisions, or downtime.

Dr. St. Laurent uses a handheld device applied to the treatment areas to distribute the RF energy that heats the fat cells, disrupting their functionality. Once the cells are damaged, your lymphatic system continues to flush them out over several weeks and you’ll begin to see a slimmer, more toned body.

Which is the better body sculpting option for me?

As long as you are in good health and have realistic expectations for results, you may be a good candidate for either the truSculpt or CoolSculpting body sculpting treatments. Dr. St. Laurent works with you to determine which technology is better suited for your desired results.

It’s important to remember that while the results of body sculpting are permanent and can be achieved without surgery, continuing to eat healthily and stay active is necessary to maintaining your swimsuit-ready body. Fat cells that have been destroyed using body sculpting technology won’t come back, but because your body still has some fat cells, you can still gain weight.
