Many of us have certain areas of our bodies that we may feel a little self-conscious of. What’s most frustrating is that a dedicated diet and exercise doesn’t always tone the areas you want it to. One of the coolest advancements in non-invasive procedures is body contouring. Entre Nous Aesthetics provides body contouring near you at our Menlo Park medical spa.
Though we are never quite far away from swimsuit season in sunny California, we are putting the spotlight on body contouring this fall so you achieve your results in time for spring and summer!
Below we explain our body contouring near you in Menlo Park at Entre Nous Aesthetics:
What is body contouring?
Body contouring, also known as body sculpting, is the use of non-surgical treatments to selectively treat areas to contour or “sculpt” the body. This can be through muscle toning, fat reduction, and even cellulite reduction! Body contouring is not a weight loss solution. It’s a way to refine and tone certain areas of your body to help you achieve your goals!
The benefits of body contouring near you at Entre Nous Aesthetics
Many people think of cosmetic surgery when it comes to enhancing or improving parts of their body. This is not the case with body contouring! You can shape and sculpt specific areas with body contouring—all without the risk and recovery time of surgery. While our very own Dr. Weston is an accomplished cosmetic surgeon, we understand that some clients don’t want to go this route for body procedures!
Fine tune specific areas
The cool thing about body contouring is you get to target specific areas of concern to treat. For example, if you have a particularly hard time losing lower belly fat with diet and exercise, CoolSculpting can reduce fat in this area! If you struggle with cellulite on your buttocks, QWO is for you!
We’ll get into the specifics of these two treatments and others later on, but just know that body contouring is perfect for targeting those hard-to-tone areas of the body.
Helping improve the confidence of our clients is one of the most satisfying parts of our mission at Entre Nous Aesthetics. Many of our clients come to us because they have a particular concern that really weighs on their self-esteem. Body contouring is a fantastic way to target the areas that make you self-conscious; this goes for our other services too, like injectables and skin rejuvenation!
Little to no downtime
Unlike surgery, body contouring does not require days of downtime for healing. Depending on your specific treatment, it may not have any downtime at all! This makes body contouring procedures an easy treatment to fit into your busy schedule and routine, as some of them require multiple treatment sessions.
Types of Body Contouring | Near You in Menlo Park
Emsculpt is a revolutionary nonsurgical body contouring procedure that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to activate your muscles. What’s so advanced (and, frankly, super cool) is that Emsculpt triggers muscle contractions more than is physically possible through normal exercise. One 28-minute Emsculpt session triggers around 20,000 muscle contractions, shrinking nearby fat cells and helping tone and strengthen the muscles!
We can use Emsculpt on the abdomen to improve muscle definition. You can also get Emsculpt for your buttocks, sometimes referred to as a “non-surgical BBL” as it enhances curve and definition in this area 🍑
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses the power of cryolipolysis to target and freeze fat cells. Frozen fat cells die, and your body naturally eliminates them as waste, reducing fat in the treatment area!
CoolSculpting allows us to smooth the contours of many treatment areas, like:
- Flanks/Love handles
- Back & bra fat
- Upper arms
- Double chin
- Inner & outer thighs
- Underneath the buttocks
CoolSculpting is perfect for those areas that are notoriously difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone, like the arms and lower abdomen. Once the fat cells are gone, they can’t come back, but it’s important to note that remaining fat cells can expand. You should maintain a healthy diet and exercise to keep up your CoolSculpting results.
Other small areas that are common for excess fat accumulation are under the chin (double chin) or near the armpits. Many find it’s difficult一if not impossible一to get rid of these unsightly fat pads with diet and exercise.
We offer Kybella, a minimally invasive injectable treatment, to break down fat cells in these two areas! It uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that breaks down and destroys fat cells.
- Double chin
- Submental fullness
- Undefined jawline
- Axillary or armpit fat pads or “bra fat”
QWO (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) is a quick and easy injectable treatment for cellulite for smooth skin on the buttocks and thighs!
It’s believed that 3 factors cause cellulite: Skin thins out over time, fat cells push against the skin, and fibrous bands cause tension and dimples. QWO works to break up the fibrous bands causing dimpling, smoothing out the surface of the skin of the buttocks from within!
What to look for in a body contouring provider
Going to the right provider is essential for getting the best results from body contouring! There are a few things to keep in mind when looking for a high-quality body contouring specialist.
Years of experience
Practice makes perfect, and when it comes to your body, you want to go to someone with experience! Find a provider with a proven track record of experience. Don’t be afraid to ask your provider how much experience they have. You may also request before and after photos to see the results of their work so you know what to expect.
In the age of the internet, reviews are an essential tool to research and find the right product, service, or provider for your needs. Look for reviews on multiple websites to get a clear picture of feedback on services, including body contouring.
Check the provider’s website, Google reviews, and other sites they might have a profile on like Facebook, RealSelf, or Yelp! If there are a limited amount of reviews to read, you may be better off meeting your provider in-person for a consultation before booking anything. This gives you the time to ask about their credentials and any questions you have.
Another tip: We find that word-of-mouth referrals are a great way to get vetted recommendations. This is how many of our clients find us at Entre Nous 😊
Beware of too-good-to-be-true discounts
We understand that there’s nothing better than getting an awesome deal. With body contouring, you should be on alert when a provider is offering extreme discounts. High-quality body contouring technology is costly for the practice, and this affects the cost of the procedure.
The experience and reputation of the provider can also affect price. When it comes down to it, don’t let cost be the sole factor in your decision for a body contouring specialist!
