Getting the body shape you want sometimes isn’t as easy as a strict exercise routine. There are a number of factors that might be working against your weight loss goals, which means achieving your ideal shape might be something you can’t do alone. At Pearl MD Rejuvenation in Toronto, Ontario we know body contouring treatments can help you have a body shape you love.
How Much Does It Cost for Body Contouring?
Here’s the thing about cosmetic treatments: there really aren’t any hard-set estimations for how much a treatment will cost. The cost of any given treatment will depend on how large the area being treated is, the amount of work that needs to be done to achieve your appearance goal, and the method of treatment being used.
However, you can always be sure that non-invasive treatments are going to be just a fraction of the price of cosmetic surgeries. So, if you want to save both recovery time and money, opting for non-invasive body contouring treatments is your smartest option.
Where Can You Have Treatment?
As a general rule of thumb, a treatment to contour the body into a specific shape can be done on virtually every area of the body. This is because the cells that are targeted by these treatments – primarily adipose fat cells – are located on the entire body, just below the surface of your skin. The most common areas for contouring treatment include:
- Upper arms
- Inner and outer thighs
There are also non-invasive contouring treatments for the cheeks, the back, and the breasts. It’s also common to contour multiple areas of the body at one time, sometimes using different treatment methods to achieve your appearance goals.
What Are Our Treatment Options?
At our clinic, we have several contouring treatments for the body. During your consultation, we will help you determine which contouring treatment best suits your needs. Some of our treatments include:
This is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound waves to selectively destroy fat cells, making it a distinctly different option from other treatments that use heat or cold for fat loss therapy.
Profound is a multi-tasking minimally-invasive treatment that utilizes microneedling and radiofrequency heat to tighten skin and smooth the appearance of cellulite.
Venus Freeze Plus
This treatment uses multi-polar radiofrequency to heat tissues and targets fat cells to tighten skin, contour the body, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Venus Freeze Plus can be used on the face and neck as well as the rest of the body.
Vela Shape combines infrared lasers, radiofrequency, vacuum pulses, and massage rollers to tighten skin and reduce fat or cellulite on the body, particularly the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
This is a minimally-invasive treatment that makes microinjections of deoxycholic acid to destroy small deposits of cellulite and adipose fat.
EMS Muscle Conditioning
EMS Muscle Conditioning is an accelerated training program that engages all 40 muscles in an intense workout session that squeezes 4 hours of traditional exercise into 20 minutes.
Metabolic Boost is a series of customized vitamin injections that help boost your metabolism and your overall health.
ReShape Weight Loss
This is a 12-week weight loss program based on medical science to help you reshape your body composition and weight.
What Is Recovery Like?
Recovery varies based on the method of contouring treatment you use. Generally speaking, the majority of contouring treatments have zero downtime, meaning patients can immediately return to all normal daily activities, including exercise.
Will You Need Multiple Treatments?
Contouring treatments build results over time, so you likely will require multiple treatments. The amount of treatments you will need depends on the condition of the treatment area and your overall appearance goals. However, the majority of contouring treatments can achieve results in as little as 12 weeks and as few as 3 to 5 treatments.
How Long Do Results Last?
Many contouring treatments can last a lifetime. Why? For contouring treatments that target adipose fat, the fat cells that are destroyed do not grow back, which makes it difficult for weight to be regained. For treatments that smooth the appearance of cellulite and tighten skin, results can last for as long as a year at a time after optimal results are achieved.
What Can You Do to Maintain Results?
Just because results can last a lifetime doesn’t mean you won’t need to exert some effort to protect your results. Contouring treatments are only a helping hand in achieving and maintaining your ideal body shape. Ultimately, it is up to you to ensure your results last for as long as possible. Fortunately, there are several things patients can do, including:
Eating a healthy balanced diet and eating in moderation will help you maintain your weight, your metabolism, and your health.
Regular exercise helps engage muscles to stay slim and also helps boost your metabolism to be continually burning fat.
It’s possible that medications or supplements you take can be contributing to weight gain. Speak with your primary care physician about side effects and alternative treatments.
For women, timing is key in maintaining the results of your treatment. It’s best to wait to have contouring treatments until after you are no longer planning on having children, as pregnancy will undo the results of your treatment.
