The Shape of Things to Come- Body Shaping

Body shaping includes three basic options for improving your appearance without weight loss:  decreasing fat, tightening skin and toning muscles.  Fat cells can be killed with heat, such as that provided by radio frequency or by freezing to decrease local fat deposits.  Skin can be tightened and encouraged to grow collagen by radiofrequency, ultrasound and laser treatments.  More recently, technology to tone muscles using high frequency electromagnetic energy has become available. 

The newest option is an amazing two-for-one machine called EMSCULPT NEO, and made by BTL.  They found a way to force the fat-melting radiofrequency through the spaces between the novel structure of the high-frequency electromagnetic energy source, which contracts and tones the muscles.  This results in the equivalent of 20,000 abdominal crunches in one 30 minute session and works on other body parts as well.

Each body is different, so schedule your free aesthetic appointment to decide what's best for yours. (Telemedicine available.)
