What Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

Body contouring (body sculpting) is a non-surgical means to tighten skin, remove fat, and shape various areas of your body. Therapists do this through lasers, injectables, controlled freezing, and more.

Each method works in different ways to adjust your body.

Types of Body Contouring


Specialists will place cupped or paneled devices around areas you want to be treated. From there, the devices will lower temperatures to extreme lows. These controlled frigid temperatures will freeze fat cells.

This type of body contouring will destroy the fat cells and reduce fat pockets.

Studies suggest that cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting) has resulted in 77% of patients with visible fat reduction [1]. They also state that this therapy is safe and will not harm nerves, skin, or muscle tissue.

CoolSculpting is Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved to use for fat reduction on the following:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Chin
  • Underarms
  • Underneath the buttocks

Laser Light Therapy

Laser Light Therapy (LLT) emits a low-irradiance laser 1–2 inches (2.5–5 cm) into your skin. Wavelengths used include infrared, red, and blue lights.

These lasers temporarily break down part of your cell’s membrane. When this happens, stored fat leeches from your body through natural waste.

This therapy is ideal for fat reduction in the following areas:

  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Abdomen

This type of therapy has been deemed safe for anyone with no issues with liver function or is pregnant [2].

Injection Lipolysis

A professional will inject a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid into your skin to absorb fat cells. The acid will kill fat cells and eventually metabolize them.

Your body naturally produces deoxycholic acid to help absorb fat. So you won’t have anything unnatural injected into your body.

Deoxycholic acid injections only work to remove submental fat (double chins) and improve this area's appearance.

You will need multiple treatments to see results. But you will also have no downtime.

Laser Treatment

Laser treatments for fat involve targeting fat cells with controlled heat. Lasers will heat fat cells until they break down. Meanwhile, they will cool your skin to ensure the therapy causes no damage to your healthy cells.

You will feel a warm (and painless) sensation throughout your laser treatment. Results from laser liposuction will surface over 2 to 6 months of continuous therapy.

The FDA has approved laser lipolysis treatments for trimming the fat from your flanks or abdomen.

How Long Does Body Contouring Last?

Some methods of body contouring can supply results within a few weeks. In contrast, other methods will take between 3 and 6 months to show any type of results.

You will need as numerous body sculpting visits as your specialist recommends to see these results. The number of treatments you will need will also vary by the body contouring technique you choose.
