Even with the right diet, exercise, and lifestyle, losing stubborn fat can be challenging. Non-surgical body contouring can help you get the shape you’ve always wanted without excessive downtime or invasive procedures.
What is non-surgical body contouring? And does non-surgical body contouring work? Keep reading to find out more about how these procedures can transform your body.
What Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring is a term used to describe treatments that work to eliminate fat, shape the curves of your body, and tighten your skin.
Although body contouring does help get rid of fat, it is not a method for losing weight. Instead, it is a method to sculpt particularly stubborn areas of fat that have not responded to weight loss or areas where weight loss has resulted in excess skin.
These treatments are meant to give similar results to surgical options, such as liposuction, lifts, and tucks. Although these procedures may produce positive results, non-surgical body contouring treatments are popular because they are less invasive and do not carry the added risks of surgery.
How Does Non-Surgical Body Contouring Work?
Different non-surgical body contouring treatments use various methods to target fat, but they all generally work to shape your body by following three steps.
First, they target fat cells. Body contouring treatments use many different techniques, including cold, heat, and lasers, to target fat cells. All non-surgical body contouring treatments are able to penetrate beneath your skin without the need for incisions, so your skin will remain undisturbed.
Then, fat cells disintegrate in the targeted treatment areas. Different targeting methods work differently, but each body contouring method will aim to minimize your fat cells by melting or dissolving them.
Finally, your body gets rid of the fat cells. After your treatment, your body naturally clears away your fat cells through your lymphatic system.
After your treatment, you’ll notice less visible fat and smoother, more contoured curves. Your exact results will depend on your treatment area and which non-surgical body contouring treatment option you choose.
What Are the Benefits of Non-Surgical Body Contouring?
If you have been struggling to get rid of stubborn body fat but don’t want to commit to invasive surgery, non-surgical body contouring offers benefits that make it a great choice for many of our patients.
Limited Recovery Time
Unlike most surgical options, a non-surgical body contouring treatment requires little to no downtime. With non-surgical treatment options, you can get results without disrupting your daily routine. If you choose to, you can usually immediately return to normal activities right after your treatment.

Non-surgical body contouring procedures are popular because they actually deliver results. The technology used in these techniques is only getting more advanced as people continue to turn to them instead of more invasive surgical options.
Non-invasive body contouring treatments work with your body’s natural processes to spot-reduce fat in those hard-to-shape areas so you can feel beautiful and confident in your skin.
What Type of Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatment is Right for Me?
Choosing the right non-surgical body contouring treatment will depend on a variety of things. During your consultation, we will discuss your medical history, including any medications or past procedures. We suggest that you come to the consultation prepared to tell us about your goals and to ask us any questions you may have.
At A Younger You Medical Spa, we offer CoolSculpting Elite to our patients who are looking for non-surgical body contouring treatments because it is non-invasive, effective, and versatile.
CoolSculpting Elite is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that uses a method called cryolipolysis to target stubborn fat. This FDA-approved treatment uses advanced technology to freeze and kill fat cells.
The procedure is performed using a handheld device that is placed over the target area to cool the fat cells. The cold temperatures damage the cells, which triggers your body’s inflammatory response. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body will naturally clear them away.
This treatment can be used to target nine different areas of the body, including the following:
- Under the chin
- Below the jawline
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Underneath the buttocks
- Upper arms
CoolSculpting Elite is unique in that it uses dual applicators to target two different stubborn fat areas at once. There is little to no downtime associated with this procedure, so you can reduce unwanted fat without disrupting your daily life and routine.
Results can begin showing six to eight weeks after your initial procedure, but the full results of your treatment may take four to six months to develop. Many patients see a 20–25% reduction in stubborn fat in their targeted treatment areas.
Depending on your goals, you may need follow-up sessions to maximize your results. After you come in for your consultation, we will recommend a treatment plan that is specially designed for you.
