Skin sagging, stubborn fat, and cellulite plague us all at one point or another in our lives. While it happens to everyone, that doesn’t mean we want it to stick around, though! That’s why non-surgical body sculpting treatments are some of the most popular procedures we offer at the Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Los Angeles, CA. Find out how you can avoid surgery and still see real, lasting results in our elite Beverly Hills medical spa.
Non-surgical body sculpting is often called body contouring, and yes, these FDA-approved procedures actually do live up to the hype! While some procedures may not provide the immediate results that surgical techniques give, they are often easier for your body to tolerate, come with fewer risks and complications and take far less time to perform. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, patients who are a healthy weight can see real results that last.
During your consultation, one of our medical aesthetic providers will go over your medical history and discuss your expectations for treatment. With this examination completed, they will be able to recommend the right treatment or treatment combination that is right for you. Following your consultation, we will schedule your first non-surgical body sculpting treatment appointment. During this appointment, we will take before photos so you can see how your body changes following each treatment. Repeated treatments are often required to see full results, so we’ll schedule your follow-up procedures and take photos at every appointment.
The Food and Drug Administration approved CoolSculpting in 2010 for non-surgical body sculpting. Since then, it has become the #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment in the United States, with new approved treatment areas and applicators coming out every year.
You may choose to use CoolSculpting in place of the traditional liposuction treatment. In a process known as cryolipolysis, fat cells freeze, slowly disintegrate and leave the body over the next few weeks. Coolsculpting permanently reduces the number of fat cells that you have. Within three weeks after your procedure, most patients see more toned with smoother skin. CoolSculpting takes as little as 35 minutes per treatment; patients often require at least 3 treatments to see full results. Following each treatment, a provider massages the area to break up the frozen fat cells more quickly. This helps speed up results. However, here at Lasky Aesthetics, we include Cellutone to break up the fat more effectively for even faster results. See below for more information on Cellutone at Lasky Aesthetics.
Exilis Ultra uses radiofrequency and ultrasound waves to tighten loose skin, reduce body fat and cellulite, and improve body contours. Exilis is a unique non-surgical body sculpting option because it provides precise results and can be used virtually anywhere on the body. Our medical aesthetic specialists can aim for targeted areas with the small Exilis tip, which works deep into your tissues to provide maximum results. Because Exilis uses a built-in cooling mechanism, it is quite safe and comfortable to receive. With Exilis, you may need up to four treatments with one treatment scheduled per week. However, a treatment typically lasts less than 30 minutes and requires no downtime.
Ultherapy also uses ultrasound for skin tightening and lifting. However, it is only FDA-approved for use on the face, neck and chest and, therefore, not a non-surgical body sculpting treatment. The ultrasound waves in this procedure stimulate collagen production to provide profound results deep beneath your skin.
If dimpled skin makes you want to wear pants to the beach, Cellutone may be the right choice for you. Pain-free Cellutone provides tiny vibrations that have an amazing effect on your underlying tissues. As your tissues are microscopically moved beneath the surface of your skin, blood flow improves and cellular wastes and fluid that collects around the dimpled tissues break down. We use Cellutone on all the main cellulite-prone areas, including the abdomen, buttocks, flanks, thighs and upper arms. As with many body sculpting options, it is a quick procedure that requires no downtime. You may choose to use it on its own or in combination with another non-surgical body sculpting procedure, such as CoolSculpting, for even more impressive results.
Thermage RF uses radiofrequency waves to reach deep beneath your skin, remodeling the underlying tissues and improving tissue tone and collagen production. Although you may experience some warmth with the procedure, you should not feel any pain. Thermage RF is best if you do not have significantly loose skin. This procedure works on many areas throughout your body, such as your abdomen, buttocks, hands, face and neck. You may only need one treatment to notice results. However, you will see the most significant results within two to six months following treatment.
