What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a cosmetic procedure that helps to tone and sculpt the body by reducing the number of fat cells. There are many different types of procedures available, each targeting different areas of the body. Common areas for body contouring include the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. Body contouring can be performed using various methods, including lasers, ultrasound, and radiofrequency.

Body contouring works by heating the tissue beneath the skin’s surface. This causes the collagen fibers to contract, which results in a tightening of the skin. The heat also helps to break down fat cells, which can help to slim and sculpt the body.

What are the different types of body contouring procedures?

There are many different types of body contouring procedures available. Some common procedures include the truSculpt® iD system and the Viora Reaction™ system. Each type of procedure works in a slightly different way, but they all work to tighten the skin and break down fat cells.

truSculpt® iD

The truSculpt® iD system is a body contouring system that uses radiofrequency to heat the tissue beneath the skin’s surface. Additionally, the RF energy can also improve skin texture and tone, as well as minimize the appearance of cellulite. The system has been cleared by the FDA for use on all skin types and can be used to treat various areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. The truSculpt® iD system is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the body.

Viora Reaction™

The Viora Reaction™ system is a body contouring system that also uses radiofrequency to heat the tissue beneath the skin’s surface. However, this system works by making the fibrous bands of tissue between skin and fat more flexible to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The system has been cleared by the FDA for use on all skin types and can be used to treat various areas of the body, including the face, hands, abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. The Viora Reaction™ system is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the body.

What are the similarities and differences between the truSculpt® iD system and the Viora Reaction™ system?

The truSculpt® iD system and the Viora Reaction™ system are both body contouring systems that use radiofrequency to heat the tissue beneath the skin’s surface in order to destroy fat cells and stimulate the production of collagen. The systems have been cleared by the FDA for use on all skin types and can be used to treat various areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. Both systems are safe and effective ways to improve the appearance of the body.

The main difference between the two systems is the active electrodes being used to treat the skin. These electrodes, or “poles”, determine how the current passes through the skin. The truSculpt® iD system uses monopolar RF energy, which means that it moves energy from a single electrode, through the body, and into a grounding pad placed under or behind the patient. This ensures that every layer of the skin is treated, as well as the subcutaneous fat layers.

The Viora Reaction™ system, on the other hand, uses bipolar RF energy. This means that there are two active poles placed near each other for the energy to move between. This allows for a superficial penetration of the RF energy, which is also easier to control and more comfortable for the patient.

The best system for you will depend on your individual needs and goals.

What can I expect when undergoing body contouring?

body contouring treatment

When undergoing body contouring, you can expect to feel a warm sensation on your skin as the radiofrequency waves heat the tissue beneath the surface. The entire treatment usually takes about 15-25 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. In most cases, a minimum of two treatments spaced a few weeks apart is recommended to obtain the best results.

The procedure is generally well tolerated and there is no downtime required. You may notice some redness and swelling in the treated area after the procedure, but this should resolve within a few days.

Results from body contouring are typically seen within six weeks of treatment. The full effects of the procedure will be visible after around 3 months as the collagen continues to contract and the skin continues to tighten.

Results from body contouring can last for many years. The results are usually long-lasting, but they may not be permanent. Some patients may need to undergo additional treatments to maintain their results.
