What is body contouring?

body contouring service imageBody contouring is a noninvasive treatment that reduces fat in specific areas you choose to target. The team at Adara Medical Spa uses the latest touchless device by EON® body contouring, which is a 1064nm laser. 

The laser delivers thermal energy to the fat cells under your skin, which damages them and causes them to lose volume. After fat cells are treated with EON, they eventually die and your body’s lymphatic system flushes them out. 

EON is notable because the treatment doesn’t involve surgery but can produce significant results anyway. You don’t need to undergo anesthesia for the procedure or take any medications before or after to help with healing or pain. 

Who can benefit from body contouring?

EON body contouring is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat fat in the abdominal region, also known as belly fat. Abdominal fat is very common and is associated with various health risks. By removing some of this fat, you reduce risks like metabolic problems and some types of cardiovascular disease.

Even though EON eliminates fat cells, it’s important to recognize it’s not a weight-loss treatment. Instead, you can consider it if you’re:

  • At or close to your ideal weight
  • Willing to continue a healthy diet and lifestyle
  • Realistic about your expectations
  • Willing to undergo more than one session

The team at Adara Medical Spa creates your treatment plan after reviewing your goals and medical history during a consultation.

What should I expect during a body contouring treatment?

When you come in for body contouring services at Adara Medical Spa, you can expect to stay in the office for around an hour. The team gives you a protective pair of goggles to wear over your eyes.

During the treatment, a robotic arm attached to the device scans your abdominal area to map out specific areas to target. While the laser works by producing heat, it balances your skin’s temperature with jet-cooling technology. 

How long does it take to see results from body contouring?

Body contouring results don’t appear right away because it takes time for your lymphatic system to flush out the damaged fat cells. You’ll see significant results around 12 weeks after a treatment, but the results continue to accumulate for around six months. 

Kybella

How does Kybella work?

When injected into the fat beneath the skin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Typically, 2-6 treatments are needed, spaced four weeks apart. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through the body’s natural metabolism.

Is Kybella safe?

Kybella is FDA approved non-invasive procedure. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of Kybella. The injections are formulated using deoxycholic acid, a chemical which is naturally produced by the body to help dissolve and absorb excess fat. Not for pregnant or breastfeeding women, those who have difficulty swallowing or if you are planning on having surgery in the treatment area. Most common side effects are swelling, bruising, redness, numbness, and small area of firmness in the treatment area.

How long are the results?

Kybella has been shown to be a safe and permanent solution for submental fat. To schedule an appointment or learn more about body contouring, call our office or book an appointment online today.
