If you’ve been trying unsuccessfully to burn off stubborn fat and gain a more sculpted figure, it may be time to consider body contouring. Capital Laser & Skin Care offers cutting-edge body contouring treatments to help you reach your body goals without surgery or downtime.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a group of cosmetic treatments used to contour the body and reduce fat. These procedures can target various areas, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, and chin, and can involve both surgical and non-surgical methods. 

Body contouring can help eliminate excess fat, tighten loose skin, and improve body contours, ultimately leading to a slimmer and more toned appearance. Though body contouring can reduce specific areas of stubborn fat, it is not a weight-loss treatment and is best for patients who are at or near the ideal weight.

What are My Body Contouring Options?

When it comes to body contouring, you have several options to choose from. Surgical procedures, such as liposuction and tummy tuck, involve removing excess fat and skin through incisions, while non-surgical methods rely on technology to eliminate fat cells without incisions.

Non-surgical body contouring devices may use radiofrequency, ultrasound, or freezing technology to break down fat cells. Your body naturally filters out these damaged cells, resulting in less fat in the treatment area. 

Capital Laser & Skin Care offers CoolSculpting® body contouring for its safety, convenience, and exceptional results. This innovative treatment uses cryolipolysis, a process that freezes unwanted fat cells without harming surrounding tissues.

Which Areas Can CoolSculpting® Treat?

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared non-surgical body contouring treatment that can target various areas of the body. The procedure takes about 35-60 minutes per treatment area with minimal downtime. 

Treatment areas for CoolSculpting® include the:

  • Abdomen

Small areas, such as the chin and around the knees, can be treated with CoolMini. We may also recommend Kybella® injections to eliminate a double chin.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting® Body Contouring?

CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss solution, but rather a body contouring treatment for those with stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. The best candidates for CoolSculpting® have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less and are within 20 pounds of their ideal body weight. 

You should be healthy overall and have realistic expectations for the outcome. CoolSculpting® may not be right for you if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have certain medical conditions.

Capital laser and skin care is the best dermatology practice I’ve ever been to. I’ve seen both Dr. Peters and Dr. Tanzi, who are both extremely intelligent, caring, highly skilled, practical – and gorgeous! The staff is excellent – very caring, skilled, excellent training, professional, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Capital Laser to anyone seeking to take fabulous care of their skin.
