We’ve all been there. You work out, eat right, drink water, and get all of your steps in. Yet still, despite all of your best efforts, that stubborn fat won’t go away.
If you can relate, body contouring could be the answer to getting rid of those frustrating pockets of fat for good. And there’s a new body contouring treatment around that could bring your physique to the next level—and keep it there.
What Is Contoura Body Contouring Treatment?
Contoura is a relatively new treatment trailblazing the way toward easy, non-invasive fat loss. This revolutionary and versatile technology combines radiofrequency energy, vacuum, and electroporation to remove stubborn fat, tighten your skin, and reduce cellulite.
Radiofrequency Energy for Fat Loss
Radiofrequency treatment works in two ways—first, by eliminating fat cells, and second, by boosting collagen to make your skin smoother and firmer.
Radiofrequency is extremely effective in reducing fat pockets. Contoura can force the RF energy into the deeper layers of your fatty tissue, which kills off fat cells. Over the next few weeks post-treatment, your body will naturally eliminate those cells, and your figure becomes more sculpted.
The science behind radiofrequency energy is that this method produces an electrical current that creates collisions between molecules and ions in your body, making them into heat.
This creates an inflammatory process that stimulates new collagen growth in your skin.
Contoura uses gentle vacuum suction to stimulate your tissues. This procedure feels like gentle pressure and is quite comfortable (even relaxing).
Electroporation is a fancy name that describes how Contoura forms holes in the membranes of your fat cells, which results in their cellular destruction.
Why Contoura Works
Contoura body contouring treatment combines RF energy, vacuum pressure, and electroporation, resulting in a unique, effective, and truly revolutionary way to reduce fat and tighten skin.
Contoura can treat fat loss, saggy skin, and cellulite in the following areas:
- Love handles
The Contoura system has three different components, so it can be a full-body treatment:
- BodyFX (treats your abs, back, thighs, buttocks, and flanks)
- MiniFX (treats cellulite, your knees, arms, and neck)
- Plus (a full-body skin-tightening mechanism)
We typically combine all three methods into a customized treatment plan just for you!
Contoura Body Contouring Benefits
Contoura body contouring has many benefits. Firstly, it’s non-invasive, meaning you will not receive any incisions or undergo surgery of any kind. It also means Contoura requires no downtime. Immediately following your procedure, you can resume your day and routine without restriction.
Every Contoura appointment will be very short, as well. Appointments last an average of 30-60 minutes. Depending on how many areas of your body you’re treating, your appointment could be shorter or longer.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Most patients start to notice results around two weeks after their first procedure. However, this is just the beginning!
As your body continues to expel fat cells and generate new collagen, you’ll see better and better results, with the full effects of treatment appearing around two to three months post-treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
The best part about the Contoura body contouring treatment process is that the results are permanent!
Contoura destroys fat cells for good, with no chance of regrowth. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, you can continue to enjoy your results for years to come.
What isn’t permanent is the production of new collagen. We recommend getting maintenance treatments every three to four months to keep stimulating your body to produce new collagen.
Contoura and Collagen
You might be wondering why collagen is so important. Collagen is a protein present in your body. It’s the most abundant protein in your body, and it’s found densely in your hair, nails, and skin.
As we age, our levels of collagen deplete naturally. This is why older folks typically deal with thinning, saggy skin.
Collagen plays many important roles in your body, but its main part in your skin is maintaining structural integrity. When collagen levels decline, your skin becomes weaker, and you become more prone to wrinkles, droopiness, and cellulite.
Since Contoura is a collagen stimulator, it’s an excellent tool for folks dealing with the natural aging process and looking to combat “dimples” on their thighs, stomach, or arms.
