3 Combinations of Body Sculpting Pairings

When it comes to sculpting and contouring your body, there’s only so much you can achieve through diet and exercise. That’s why at RefinedMD we offer a number of minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments and procedures to help you achieve the results you want. In many cases, the best candidates for these options are already fit, healthy, and at or near their goal weight (though there are exceptions). Plus, it’s rare that “just” one treatment is going to give you optimal results. Opting for more than one treatment modality is helpful when you’re tackling any skin condition, and mixing and matching treatments is a great way to take your results to the next level. But which combinations are best?

Emsculpt and CoolSculpting have been a perfect pair since the revolutionary Emsculpt technology was released just a few years ago. Together, they help you get today’s ideal aesthetic: not just slender, but strong. This duo epitomizes the “strong is the new skinny” motto plastered across tank tops at the gym. CoolSculpting has been around for decades, but the tech keeps improving. Today, you can freeze away small amounts of unwanted fat just about anywhere, including small areas like below the chin. Plus, today’s CoolSculpting works quicker so that you can get the best results in fewer sessions. CoolSculpting is totally non-invasive and targets trouble areas where fat lingers. It freezes the fat cells, killing them, and your body safely absorbs and gets rid of these dead cells in the weeks following the treatment. Most people need 3 – 6 treatments spaced one month apart for best results.

Emsculpt is the original technology from BTL that works to build muscle while you sit back and relax. Also non-invasive, it forces muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. You can also use Emsculpt nearly anywhere you typically want to build muscle, and you can also book back-to-back sessions to target more than one muscle area per visit. Similar to CoolSculpting, it can take up to six sessions for optimal results (but you don’t have to wait as long between visits). Emsculpt plus CoolSculpting is a great way to contour, sculpt, and customize your body.

Emsculpt NEO and Emtone are two of the latest, most popular technologies from BTL. Emsculpt NEO is the second generation of Emsculpt and has the added benefit of radiofrequency (RF). RF burns away unwanted fat so you can actually tackle the same area, blasting fat while building muscle, at once. In some areas you might want to do this (such as the abs), while in others you only want to build muscle (like the buttocks). That’s why we offer both generations of Emsculpt. In many cases, clients opt for Emsculpt NEO on the thighs and abs, shrinking and toning these areas—and the derriere can be a problem area.

People of any shape and size can have cellulite. For years, the only way to actually get rid of cellulite was through a painful, time-consuming surgery (and even then it wasn’t permanent). Emtone uses RF, pressure, and acoustic waves to release the fibrous bands that cause the appearance of cellulite. It doesn’t last forever, but it’s completely non-invasive and you can always get more Emtone sessions in the future.

Qwo and CoolSculpting work by getting rid of cellulite while also reducing unwanted fat. You can CoolSculpt away, and follow this session with Qwo injections in the buttocks. Qwo is the first FDA-approved injectable that dissolves the bands causing cellulite—but it is only approved for use in women’s buttocks. Over 90 percent of women experience cellulite in their lives, and it often appears in this region. Some bruising and swelling can occur, but Qwo lasts twice as long as Emtone results.

The exact combination for you depends on your current skin condition and your goals. A consultation with skin care experts is the first step in determining your game plan. Let’s work together to help you achieve results you’ll love—and can start to enjoy before summer’s end! You can also mix and match more than two treatment, such as CoolSculpting, Emsculpt, and Qwo for maximum outcomes. Find out more by getting in touch with RefinedMD to
