Body Contouring Q & A

by Jean-Denis Boucher, MD, FAAD

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a technique that helps change the appearance and shape of your body using safe, effective treatments suited to your needs. There’s no need for incisions or surgery to achieve a slimmer, well-balanced figure.

Dr. Boucher offers several body contouring services at Lone Star State Dermatology, including:

  • Cryolipolysis
  • Laser treatment
  • Radiofrequency treatment
  • Ultratherapy

After evaluating your cosmetic goals and medical history, Dr. Boucher determines which method is most effective at producing your desired results.

Body contouring treatments all work similarly to each other, using your body’s natural healing responses to eliminate unwanted fat for good.

What is cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is a cooling technique that selectively targets unwanted bulges of fat, permanently dissolving fat cells, which your body eliminates through the natural waste process. This treatment gradually reduces the thickness of your excess fat layers, giving you a slimmer, more contoured figure.

What is lipo-laser?

Lipo-laser involves a highly sensitive laser to dissolve the fat deposites saturated in the upper layers of the skin. The energy from the laser breaks up the fat cells to produce an oily material. This substance (oily material) is naturally eliminated thru the normal body process which leads to a permanent loss of fat as long as a healthy diet is maintained. The laser also encourages collagen production and in turn strenghthen the skin.

What’s involved in body contouring laser treatments?

Dr. Boucher performs lipo-laser treatments that use highly sensitive laser energy to dissolve unwanted fat deposits in the upper layers of your skin. Laser energy targets fat cells, breaking them up into an oily material.

Your body naturally metabolizes this material over time, and your body’s contours continue to slim down with long-lasting results.

How do radiofrequency treatments work?

Radiofrequency treatments uses high-frequency sound waves to heat and destroy fat cells. Your body naturally eliminates dead fat cells through the waste process.

These treatments don’t provide immediate results, but over time your body continues to metabolize destroyed fat, giving you a more contoured appearance.

What is ultratherapy?

Ultratherapy is an effective body contouring treatment method that uses ultrasound energy to destroy unwanted fat deposits beneath the surface of the skin. Fat cells are permanently damaged and eliminated naturally by your body’s waste process. That gives you long-lasting, natural results without surgery.

UItrasound energy also triggers your body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of new collagen to give you healthier, younger-looking skin.

What are the benefits of body contouring?

Because Dr. Boucher uses noninvasive, nonsurgical treatments to reduce unwanted fat deposits, you don’t have to worry about a long recovery or extended downtime. Nonsurgical body contouring treatments don’t require any incisions, so you can enjoy the benefits of a slimmer, more toned body without visible scars.
