While all body shapes have their own natural beauty, many people want to slim down and get rid of unwanted fat. Belly fat, love handles, and lumpy fat deposits can lead to a lack of confidence and make you feel self-conscious in an age where thin waistlines and flat stomachs have become the ideal standard of beauty. Luckily, there is an effective cosmetic option that can help you get rid of stubborn fat and sculpt your body into the shape you want: BodySculp in Atlanta, GA.
Most people will tell you that diet and exercise are the best ways to get rid of body fat. While it is important to stay active and eat right for your health, these lifestyle changes can only do so much to change your appearance. Even if you spend hours at the gym every week and eat all the right foods, it can be difficult to spot-reduce fat from specific areas of the body.
BodySculp is a non-surgical treatment that offers amazing results with less downtime and discomfort than liposuction. Dr. Louis DeJoseph and his team have over three decades of cosmetic medicine experience and can help you regain your confidence with BodySculp treatments.
What is BodySculp?
BodySculp is a fat reduction treatment that contours the body and permanently destroys fat cells. This is a safe and highly effective procedure that uses diode laser energy to get rid of fat deposits for good.
Dr. DeJoseph and his team recommend this non-surgical option for patients who want to avoid liposuction and reduce the recovery period for their fat reduction treatments. In particular, BodySculp is ideal for individuals who have recently lost weight but are having trouble losing that last bit of stubborn fat.
The results of this treatment won’t appear right away, and we recommend this treatment only for people who are within 20 pounds of their ideal weight. After a few treatments, good candidates for the procedure will look more toned and fit, boosting their confidence and self-esteem.
What Are The Benefits of BodySculp?
As with any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to understand all the benefits and risks before moving forward with the treatment. Here’s why so many people are choosing BodySculp:
Non-Surgical Option With Reduced Recovery Time & Improved Comfort
While liposuction and other surgical options can be ideal for some patients, not everyone has the time to undergo and recover from surgery. Surgery is also costly and causes a certain amount of discomfort.
This is why BodySculp can be so beneficial. While liposuction requires incisions in the skin, a long fat draining procedure, and a lengthy recovery period, BodySculp offers a less invasive alternative.
With BodySculp, Dr. DeJoseph uses laser energy to remove fat from the body. The procedure is painless and quick. It also requires no recovery time.
Natural-Looking Results That Appear Gradually
BodySculp creates more natural-looking results for patients than manual body contouring. Surgical procedures create amazing results, but they also create dramatic changes to the body in a short amount of time.
If you want to make it less obvious that you have had work done on your body, or you simply want more natural-looking results, then BodySculp might be right for you.
BodySculp targets fat cells and allow the body to naturally eliminate them over a longer period of time. While it will take weeks for your body to slim down, the results of your procedure will appear more gradually and naturally.
The consultation is an important part of the fat reduction process. You will need to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon before you have the BodySculp treatment performed. While this is not an invasive procedure, laser treatments should be done only by a medical professional who has been trained to safely sculpt the body.
Dr. DeJoseph and his team have performed countless laser treatments for patients and know how to customize your procedure to suit your desired specifications. They can also answer any of your questions about the procedure and will go over your medical history during your consultation to ensure you’re a good candidate.
You can book an appointment with us to discuss which areas of your body you would like to tone and sculpt. Your consultation is an opportunity for you to learn more and feel prepared to book your treatment.
Preparing for BodySculp
BodySculp requires very little preparation since it is not an invasive procedure. Still, after your consultation, our team might give you a few instructions to help the process go more smoothly.
Most importantly, you will need to keep lotions and other beauty products away from your stomach and other areas of the body that will be treated before your appointment. In addition, make sure to get a good night of rest and eat a healthy meal before you come in. This will make it easier to undergo your hour-long BodySculp session.
How Does BodySculp Work and What Can You Expect?
Once you have had a consultation with our team, we will set up a date for your BodySculp treatment. On the day of your procedure, you will be brought to a treatment area and asked to sit in a reclining seat.
Your BodySculp provider will target the areas you and your doctor have discussed. A laser will be used to heat up fat cells and destroy them. Simultaneously, your provider will use a cooling system that will reduce discomfort and keep your skin safe.
As you lay down, fat will be precisely targeted with laser energy. This will take up to one hour. You won’t see results immediately after your BodySculp session, as the body needs time to process the fat cells that have been treated.
Dead fat cells will naturally be expelled through the body without surgery over the course of twelve weeks. Some of our clients have only one BodySculp session done, while others choose to come back in for further fat reduction.
BodySculp Recovery Process
The recovery process for BodySculp will be much shorter in comparison to liposuction and other treatments. In fact, it requires no recovery period at all. While you might see some slight swelling, bruising, and redness, this is normal and should subside quickly.
We recommend taking over-the-counter pain relievers if there is any discomfort, or you can use an ice pack to bring down swelling. The side effects should not be too noticeable though. Lotion can also be used after your BodySculp session.
The results of your fat reduction procedure will take around twelve weeks to fully emerge. Once the fat has been eliminated from your body, you will enjoy improved contours and a sleek look.
BodySculp has no associated downtime. You won’t have to spend weeks or months recovering. Instead, you can get back to your life right away.
BodySculp is FDA-approved and safe to use on the body. It does not damage or harm the skin in any way. But, you want to make sure that you are getting BodySculp done by an experienced medical professional for the safest results!
BodySculp isn’t for everyone and is best for people who have lost weight and need to get rid of particularly stubborn fat deposits. We recommend this treatment for people who are within a healthy weight range for their height.
Since BodySculp is a non-surgical procedure, there is no anesthesia required. BodySculp is painless and involves very minimal discomfort.
How Much Does BodySculp Cost?
The cost of BodySculp depends on the area you live in and the doctor you are seeing. Typically, though, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2000 to $4000 per session.
This price point is variable, but on average you will spend less on BodySculp than you would on liposuction. This is because BodySculp is a non-surgical treatment.
