Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a process that enhances the shape and figure of your body. This process is used for helping reduce areas of stubborn fat, and some forms of body sculpting include the removal of excess skin after a significant weight loss.

There are two main types of body contouring:


Surgical body contouring is an invasive procedure to remove fat, lift sagging skin, and alter the placement of tissue in order to enhance your overall appearance. Liposuction is an example of this type of body contouring.


Nonsurgical body contouring — or nonsurgical fat reduction — enhances the body by removing stubborn pockets of fat by noninvasive means.

Alabama Vein & Restorative Medspa offers nonsurgical options for body contouring. This approach to body contouring allows you to have the option for improving your appearance without the risks that come with surgical procedures.

What are some types of noninvasive body contouring treatments?

There are several different approaches to noninvasive body contouring. Each of these serve to kill fat cells and destroy fatty tissue in different ways.

These include:

  • Laser fat reduction: uses laser-generated heat to kill fat cells
  • Cryolysis: uses cold temperatures to destroy fat cells
  • Radiofrequency lipolysis: uses radio waves to break up fat cells
  • Injection lipolysis: uses medications that are toxic to fat cells

Alabama Vein & Restorative Medspa is proud to offer SculpSureⓇ, which uses the laser fat reduction method for noninvasive body contouring.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is a safe and effective, noninvasive body contouring method that delivers laser-generated heat through a belt that wraps around the area of unwanted fat and uses four special applicators to deliver the laser energy.

During a 25-minute treatment session, the SculpSure system alternates between delivering laser energy and cool temperatures. This allows for an effective break-up of fat cells, while also keeping you comfortable.

This treatment is not painful and does not require any downtime, so you’re able to return to your normal activities immediately. You’ll start to see results in about six weeks, as the body flushes out remnants of the destroyed fat cells, and full effects of the treatment are evident about three months after your treatment.

During your initial consultation with the team, they take time to make sure you have realistic expectations of your results, so that you’re as happy as possible with your noninvasive body contouring treatment.
