We get it- even if you workout seven days a week, there still might be those areas of fat that don’t seem to go away! Or, you’ve been trying out the new fan-favorite Gua Sha, but still have pockets of fat under your chin that linger. Did you know there is an alternative to removing this fat? It’s called body contouring! At Lux Laser and Skincare, we use the Venus Legacy machine to help get rid of your problem areas AND it’s non-invasive. Ready to learn more? Keep reading.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring uses Multi-Polar RF and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields to specifically target areas of fat on the body. The RF induces collagen and elastin synthesis by causing controlled thermal damage to the areas of fat. This then triggers the self-repair mechanism of the skin tissue. This results in improved skin elasticity and tightness, along with decreased amounts of subcutaneous fat mass and improved circulation. The fat is then expelled upon bathroom breaks, and it’s as easy as that. Keep in mind that a plus for many is that body contouring at Lux Laser is non-invasive and requires little to no downtime, making the process quick and simple!
What does body contouring help with?
Body contouring helps with reducing fat on areas of the body, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and reducing cellulite. At Lux Laser and Skincare, the Venus Legacy not only helps with these issues but can additionally improve the overall appearance of the skin. This makes the procedure popular not only on the body but on the face and neck as well. The FDA has approved the Venus Legacy for treating the face and neck, making it a great alternative for tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles in these areas.
Who can get body contouring?
Body contouring is available for all skin types. Those with excess or saggy skin are not always the best candidates, and those with a large amount of fat in the areas you wish to be treated. Body contouring is for specific areas of fat on the body, and not larger areas as a whole. Think of inner thighs (good candidate) versus full abdomen (poor candidate). Additionally, if you’re already in the process of improving your health or lifestyle to lose weight overall, you will be deemed an excellent candidate!
What areas of the body can be treated?
Luckily, there are multiple areas of the body that can be treated for body contouring at Lux Laser and Skincare. Some popular areas that we often treat include the double chin and inner thighs. Other areas of the body that can be treated are the face, neck, back, hips, and buttocks. If you’re interested in other areas, be sure to ask your provider during your initial consultation!
Is body contouring safe?
Yes, body contouring is a safe and effective way to reduce fat on the body! Body contouring also works best alongside diet and exercise. Those who have active inflammation in treatment areas, histories of cancer, skin-related autoimmune diseases, degenerative or neurological diseases, or are thinking of becoming pregnant should not undergo a body contouring treatment.

What are the results like?
Individual results may vary, and depending on your specific treatment plan drawn up by your provider, you may need multiple treatments. Generally, you can start to see results in the weeks after your initial treatment. Results are long-lasting, while skin elasticity may still decrease with the aging process. Despite this, the majority of your initial improvement will stay, making this is a safe and effective weight loss treatment!
What is body contouring aftercare like?
Body contouring recovery and aftercare are pretty easy! We always suggest avoiding alcohol for 72 hours after treatment and to avoid strenuous workouts for 24 hours after treatment. Additionally, avoiding spas or saunas is also suggested. Other than that, you’ll be able to resume life as normal!
What is the cost of body contouring?
Depending on the areas you want to treat and the number of treatments you may need, prices may vary. That is why we offer free initial consultations so you can receive your personalized treatment plan from one of our experienced providers! In this consultation, they will also go over results and pricing.
