Body Sculpting Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Sometimes, a healthy diet and rigorous exercise aren’t enough to give you your ideal body. Stubborn areas of fat stick around no matter what you do, and loose or sagging skin keeps you looking out of shape and older than you feel.

Body sculpting procedures can give you the toned look that you want without risky surgeries and the scarring that comes from them. Instead, body sculpting technologies use hot or freezing temperatures to kill fat cells, allowing your body to reabsorb them. While body sculpting isn’t intended for weight loss, you’ll look slimmer after the procedure and may lose a bit of weight in the process.

How does body sculpting work?

Apex Health & Body Sculpting offers body sculpting with CoolSculpting, a technology that targets fat cells with extremely cold temperatures to freeze them until they die. Over the next few weeks, your body reabsorbs the dead fat cells. As soon as three weeks after your treatment, you’ll be able to see a difference. The full results will be apparent around two months after your appointment.

What can body sculpting do for me?

Body sculpting can have amazing results, allowing you to look thinner and making your muscles appear more defined. Body sculpting can target and improve the look of:

  • Your thighs
  • Your buttocks
  • Your stomach
  • Your upper arms
  • The area under your breasts
  • Your back
  • Your sides

Body sculpting reduces the fat and excess skin in these areas. You may not lose much volume, but your skin will look tighter after each body sculpting treatment. Your silhouette will appear smooth and contoured.

Is body sculpting safe?

Body sculpting is much safer than surgical and invasive alternatives that achieve the same or similar results. You might experience a few side effects from the treatment, but nothing permanent or disfiguring. Possible side effects are:

  • Discomfort
  • Redness
  • Tingling
  • Itchiness
  • Irritation
  • Soreness
  • Bruising

If you’re concerned about the procedure, Dr. Michael Jones can give you a full list of the risks associated with body sculpting.
