At the M.D. Aesthetics and Wellness Institute in Tampa, FL we understand how difficult it can be to achieve a lean, sculpted physique. Sometimes, no matter how diligent we are about our diet or how much we exercise, we can’t seem to get rid of stubborn fat or define muscles in certain areas. Our team is proud to offer non-surgical body contouring with CoolSculpting®, Emsculpt Neo®, and VelaShape®, so our patients can enjoy the many benefits of these advanced treatments.

Benefit #1: Non-Invasive

Non-surgical body contouring treatments are designed to deliver noticeable results without the need for incisions, anesthesia, or significant downtime, making them an appealing alternative to traditional body plastic surgery procedures. Non-invasive body shaping treatments utilize different technologies and types of energy, emitted through specialized applicators, to initiate changes in the targeted tissue.

  • CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling technology to freeze and destroy fat cells, a process called cryolipolysis.
  • Emsculpt Neo® combines radiofrequency heating and high intensity electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to melt fat and build muscle.
  • VelaShape® employs a combination of infrared light, suction, and bipolar radiofrequency energy to reduce cellulite and fat and promote firmer skin.

Benefit #2: Noticeable, Natural-Looking Results

While each of our non-surgical body sculpting treatments works in a unique way, they all provide noticeable, natural-looking results. In most cases, a series of treatment sessions is recommended, allowing for gradual, ongoing improvements until you’ve arrived at your desired outcome. Results vary depending on the type of treatment performed:

  • CoolSculpting® is a dedicated fat reduction treatment, making it a good option for patients who are happy with their muscle tone and just want to get rid of localized fat deposits.
  • Emsculpt Neo® both reduces fat and stimulates muscle growth, providing slimming effects, as well as increased strength and sharper muscle definition.
  • VelaShape® targets fat while also remodeling and increasing collagen for firmer, smoother skin.

Benefit #3: Safety

Because no anesthesia or incisions are involved, non-surgical treatments are associated with fewer risks than surgical body contouring procedures. Additionally, all of the devices we use for non-surgical body contouring are approved by the FDA.

Benefit #4: Versatility

Non-surgical body contouring treatments can address multiple body shaping concerns and target many common problem areas. Treatments are customized based on the patient’s needs and cosmetic goals.

  • CoolSculpting® can eliminate fat in the upper arms, abdomen, flanks, thighs, underneath the buttocks, and under the chin, as well as target back fat and bra rolls.
  • Emsculpt Neo® reduces fat and builds muscle. Treatment areas include the biceps, triceps, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, inner thigh, outer thigh, front thigh, back thigh, and calves.
  • VelaShape® can address cellulite, mild skin laxity, and excess fat in the arms, thighs, flanks, buttocks, and under the chin.

Benefit #5: Lasting Results

Patients who maintain a stable, healthy weight can enjoy long-lasting results with non-surgical body contouring treatments. Patients who make regular exercise a priority and follow a nutritious, calorically-appropriate diet can often build on their results. Periodic follow-up treatments may be recommended, as needed, to mitigate the effects of the natural aging process.
