Body Contouring Q & A
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is an FDA-approved, state-of-the-art aesthetic treatment that uses light energy to target and eradicate unwanted fat cells that are resistant to traditional weight-loss treatments like diet and exercise.
WarmSculpting treatment has a proven track record of success. Clinical studies show just one 25-minute session can eliminate up to 24% of fat cells. In addition, WarmSculpting body contouring is entirely noninvasive. There are no incisions, stitches, or sutures involved.
What areas can body contouring treat?
WarmSculpting treatment uses a multi-applicator system, meaning it can eliminate fat almost anywhere on your body. Dr. Farooq regularly recommends WarmSculpting body contouring to address fat on the:
- Love handles
WarmSculpting treatment can also eliminate submental or under-chin fat, making it ideal for those who want to avoid injectables.
Am I a good candidate for body contouring?
WarmSculpting treatment isn’t a weight-loss solution and it can’t cure obesity. However, if you’re at or around your ideal body weight, and you’ve already committed to healthy lifestyle changes like regular exercise and eating a nutritious diet, it’s worth considering. In addition, WarmSculpting body contouring is safe for all body and skin types.
Does body contouring hurt?
WarmSculpting treatment is safe and generally well-tolerated. Most patients describe the sensation of body contouring as a deep warmth, punctuated by intermittent periods of tingling.
Unlike other body contouring systems on the market, WarmSculpting treatment uses no suction, so you don’t have to worry about bruising or other damage to your skin, either. If you have sensitive skin or become uncomfortable during treatment, let Dr. Farooq know and she can adjust the settings accordingly.
Once your WarmSculpting appointment is over, you can return to normal activities right away. There’s no downtime or extended recovery period.
How many body contouring treatments will I need?
The number of WarmSculpting treatments you’ll need depends on your unique body type and aesthetic goals. To achieve the best possible results, Dr. Farooq usually recommends a series of at least three treatments.
