Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a type of treatment that minimizes fat in targeted areas where it’s not easy to reduce through diet and exercise. At Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness, Dr. Lo uses Viora® laser devices to perform body contouring treatments. These procedures use the heat from a laser light to damage fat cells to the point they can no longer hold volume. 

Over the course of the weeks or months after your initial body contouring procedures, the targeted areas reduce in size as your lymphatic system naturally flushes out their fat contents. The procedure also helps tighten the skin in these areas to make you look trimmer. 

Viora V-Form, one option for body contouring, can also minimize the appearance of cellulite in targeted areas. Cellulite is dimpled skin and has more to do with the structure of your tissue than with the fat content of the areas where it appears. 

Which areas can I target with body contouring?

Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness offers body contouring for all the areas where fat tends to accumulate but doesn’t go away easily. Despite your best efforts at slimming down, certain areas of the body hold onto fat and can contribute to disproportion. 

During your treatment consultation, you can talk to Dr. Lo about targeting the fat in these areas:

  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Knees

 

You can choose a few areas if you have more than one in mind, or just one problem area that stands out among the rest. You can also combine body contouring with other treatments like skin tightening for wrinkles or intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment for spots on the skin. 

Am I a good candidate for body contouring?

Body contouring aligns with the goals of many individuals interested in the treatment, but it’s not the best option for everyone. While the procedure helps reduce the circumferences of targeted areas like the thighs or core, it doesn’t produce significant weight loss. Dr. Lo recommends reaching your goal weight before considering body contouring as treatment. 

Additionally, you should be in good physical health before you get body contouring. During a consultation, Dr. Lo goes over your medical history and reviews the medications you take. She lets you know if body contouring is a safe recommendation or if you should consider other options. 

You should also have realistic expectations for your body contouring results and only get the treatment if you want it for yourself rather than to appease someone else.
