5 Options for Body Contouring

When it comes to contouring and sculpting your body, there’s only so much the gym and a healthy diet can do. That’s why RefinedMD offers six unique options for improving your body—all non-invasive or minimally invasive. Mixing and matching treatments is often the best way to get the ultimate results. During a consultation with one of our skin care experts, we can go over your skin concerns, goals, and create a customized regimen just for you. Let’s take a look at our 5 options and see what they can do:

  1. Emsculpt: This is the original BTL technology that changed the game for muscle building and strengthening. It forces muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. That’s the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches, squats, bicep curls, or any other strength-training move. It is a fantastic option to create a solid foundation for strength training or complement an existing workout regimen.
  2. Emsculpt NEO: The second generation of Emsculpt takes contouring to the next level. It has the same muscle-building power as Emsculpt, but combines it with HIFEM to dissolve fat at the same time. This makes it perfect for areas where you want to both bulk up muscle and burn fat, such as the abs and arms. Of course, other areas, such as the booty, might benefit from a little extra padding. That’s why we offer both Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO. Many clients mix and match these technologies. For example, a session with Emsculpt NEO on the calves might be followed with the original Emsculpt for the derriere. Back-to-back Emsculpt/Emsculpt NEO sessions are an easy way to squeeze in treatments and save time. For both of these technologies, most clients require circa 6 initial sessions spaced 4 weeks apart followed by maintenance sessions every 6 months. There is no pain, needles, or downtime necessary (although typical DOMS soreness is to be expected).
  3. Emtone: Another offering by BTL, Emtone helps improve the appearance of cellulite by optimizing localized circulation. You can use Emtone anywhere on the body where there is cellulite, with one of the most popular areas being the stomach. There is no method for permanently getting rid of cellulite, surgically or non-surgically, but treatments like Emtone go a long way in improving appearance. You can also opt for maintenance sessions to keep results you’re sure to love.
  4. Qwo: This is the first FDA-approved injection for undoing cellulite. Since it is an injection, it is considered minimally invasive. It dissolves the bands that cause cellulite, but these bands will reconnect in about two years after being treated. Right now, Qwo is only approved for use in the buttocks of women (which is why we also offer Emtone). Results are dramatic and require 3 sessions spaced 3 weeks apart. However, bruising is a common side effect. It is, of course, temporary and easy to hide. Still, winter is the best time for Qwo because it is simple to cover up any bruising and you’ll be ready to show off a cellulite-free booty by spring break.
  5. CoolSculpting: Maybe you’ve had CoolSculpting before or know someone who has. It’s the gold standard for getting rid of small quantities of fat by freezing it away. Also known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-painful treatment that targets trouble areas and kills fat cells in a series of cycles. Most people require 4 – 6 cycles on average for optimal results. The outcome is slow and steady because freezing, metabolizing, and eradicating unwanted fat cells takes time. You will see some initial results one month after your first cycle with full results six months later. In other words, just in time for summer.

You might be a good match for one or more of these treatments. Combining treatments is going to give you the fastest and best outcome, so schedule a consultation today and learn more. Get in touch with RefinedMD by calling our office or filling out the online contact form today.
