Trim Down Trouble Areas with Body Contouring

Even when you live a healthy, active lifestyle, the hormonal changes that come with aging can produce areas of stubborn fat that you just can’t seem to lose. These trouble spots, like an unsightly muffin top or the dreaded love handles, can affect how you feel about your appearance.

Here at Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics, Dr. Will Richardson has several nonsurgical solutions to address these areas and enhance your natural curves. He uses the latest technologies in body contouring to eliminate stubborn fat without a single incision or minute of downtime. These technologies include CoolSculpting® and VelaShape® III to help you reach your contouring goals and boost your self-confidence.

The CoolSculpting story

CoolSculpting is an innovative body-contouring option that uses cold energy to freeze unwanted fat cells, killing them permanently. The freezing technology doesn’t harm surrounding skin tissue and requires no anesthesia or recovery time.

Once the CoolSculpting system freezes fat cells beneath the skin, your body begins to metabolize the dead cells and eliminates them over time as waste. There’s no follow-up treatment necessary to address the destroyed cells.

Within 3-4 weeks of treatment, you can begin to see the results of CoolSculpting treatments. The treated areas begin to slim down, highlighting your natural curves. As your body continues to dispose of unwanted fat in the months following your session, your results continue to improve.

How VelaShape works

VelaShape III uses multiple noninvasive technologies to eliminate excess body fat and improve skin tone and texture. The system involves infrared light and radiofrequency energy to heat up fat cells and surrounding tissue. In conjunction with the vacuum technology, the heat destroys the structure of fat cells and the overall treatment stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

As a result, areas of cellulite begin to fill in with new, healthier collagen and elastin, the basic building blocks of healthy skin. New growth smooths out your skin, making it appear younger and more vibrant.

Potential treatment areas

Both CoolSculpting and VelaShape are effective in treating even hard-to-reach areas of your body. Dr. Richardson can recommend the right technology, based on your specific goals and the treatment area.

Trouble spots that can be treated include:

Dr. Richardson can even recommend body-sculpting treatment on your delicate areas, including the pelvis and under the chin.

Reduce fat while relaxing

VelaShape and CoolSculpting treatments are both completed in a comfortable office environment. You can expect to sit or lie back and relax throughout your session.

During a CoolSculpting procedure, you may feel periods of an intense cooling sensation when the technology cycles on. The VelaShape system provides a deep, warming sensation that many people compare to a deep-tissue massage.

Once your treatment is complete, you can expect to go right back to your usual activities without any need for recovery. In fact, many people enjoy body-contouring treatments during their lunch break and return to the office without anyone being aware of what’s been done.

Body contouring candidates

Body contouring is a great option for anyone who is close to a healthy weight and is struggling to eliminate stubborn fat deposits with diet and exercise.

As long as you are in good overall health and have the right expectations for your results, Dr. Richardson can create a custom treatment plan to help rejuvenate your body and highlight a slimmer, healthier-looking figure.
