What is noninvasive body contouring?

Noninvasive body contouring improves the shape and proportion of your body by eliminating localized pockets of fat. Noninvasive procedures aren’t for extensive weight loss, so they’re best for people who are close to their desired body weight.

Dr. Long performs body contouring using an innovative device called ThermiSmooth Body. It’s useful for getting rid of trouble spots like belly fat, love handles, thighs, back, and upper arms.

Does ThermiSmooth Body also treat cellulite?

Yes, ThermiSmooth Body can reduce the appearance of cellulite. In addition to eliminating areas of fat, this device also makes existing collagen contract and stimulates the production of new collagen for stronger and better-toned skin. The combined effect – fat loss together with tightened and toned skin – diminishes your cellulite.

How does ThermiSmooth Body eliminate fat?

ThermiSmooth Body uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the targeted areas of stubborn fat. Dr. Long controls the treatment to reach the desired depth under your skin and customizes RF therapy for your trouble spots.

After placing a flat applicator against your skin, Dr. Long moves it in gentle, circular motions over the targeted area. RF energy heats the fat cells until they reach the precise temperature that makes them break down. Then the destroyed cells are naturally eliminated by your body, so they’re gone for good.

What should you expect during and after treatment?

You receive a series of ThermiSmooth Body treatments over 6-8 weeks. While four treatments are advisable for optimal results, Dr. Long determines the number of treatments needed after your initial examination.

Each session lasts about 15 minutes. During that time, the heat is so well-controlled that you should be comfortable. In fact, the treatment often is compared to having a soothing hot stone massage. Your skin may be a little red afterward, but you can get right back to your regular activities.

Most people see improvement after the first treatment. It takes time for your body to clear away the destroyed fat cells, however, so you may not see the full results for several months.

If you’re not sure whether you’re a good candidate for body contouring, please don’t hesitate to call the office and schedule a consultation. Dr. Long will talk with you about your weight loss goals, evaluate your problem areas, and determine whether ThermiSmooth Body will achieve the results you want.
