There are many factors that determine how fast we can achieve our body goals.
Age, genetics, and even sun exposure are just some of the main factors that affect how well we can maintain a healthy and youthful appearance for our skin and body.
One of the many things people struggle with is sagging skin – especially after significant weight loss. While a healthy diet and constant exercise may help you reach your ideal weight, a little help might be needed to ensure that your skin won’t lag behind your new shape.
Enter body contouring procedures.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring has been performed by medical practitioners for decades and as science advances, the techniques and treatments involved have also improved significantly.
Generally speaking, body contouring is a medical procedure that helps reshape areas of the body. It’s specifically used by qualified treatment providers to eliminate excess fat, help contour the treated area, and tighten up loose, sagging skin.
Body contouring is not a weight loss treatment. Rather, it’s recommended for patients who have already arrived at their ideal weight and are just looking to get the silhouette and definition they want.
There are different types of body contouring treatments available, depending on your specific needs. The most common examples are cryolipolysis and lipolysis using injection, laser, and radiofrequency.
EvolveX by InMode
One example of a body contouring procedure offered by Etanda Skin Solutions is EvolveX. Developed by InMode, Evolve X is a hands-free platform for total body transformation.
It’s an all-in-one system that’s equipped with multiple proven technologies such Tone (EMS), Tite (Bipolar RF), and Transform (Bipolar RF and EMS).
EvolveX’s multi-modalities allow qualified providers to customize a combination of treatments depending on the patient’s needs. Moreover, the hands-free applicators deliver uniform heating to multiple treatment areas ensuring consistent transformative results.
Body Contouring Radiofrequency
Etanda also offers other non-invasive and pain-free body contouring procedures which use radio frequency (RF).
Body contouring RF works by melting away cellulite and effectively destroying fat cells in the body. Furthermore, infrared light (IR) is applied to boost the body’s natural production of collagen and tighten the skin in the treated area.
Basically, Radiofrequency penetrates the skin and selectively heats the skin tissue. The heating then causes a contraction of collagen fibers and eventually shrinks fat cells.
As a result, the treatment helps improve sagging skin while helping you achieve the shape you’ve always wanted.
Benefits of Body Contouring
Since it’s a non-invasive procedure, patients who undergo body contouring using RF technology feel little to no discomfort throughout the entire treatment.
In fact, the procedure itself can feel relaxing for some and each part of your body will only be treated for a short period of time. However, the procedure can target many areas of your body in one session.
Moreover, with RF body contouring, you can achieve significant skin tightening with limited bruising.
The result? Smoother, firmer skin and toned muscles (though this is usually the result of multiple sessions, the number of which depends on personal goals).
Best Candidates for RF Body Contouring
Body contouring is ideal for adults who already achieved their ideal weight and are concerned with getting a more toned shape while also addressing any resulting skin laxity.
The procedure is also best for healthy individuals who are committed to keeping up a healthy lifestyle since this is crucial for long-lasting results.
