Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is an aesthetic process that uses noninvasive technologies to refine your figure. It’s ideal if you have fat pads on your body that won’t go away even when you exercise regularly and watch your weight.

Soine Dermatology & Aesthetics offers two leading body sculpting treatments, CoolSculpting and Emsculpt.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a form of body contouring that uses intense cold to kill fat cells. When you lose weight, your fat cells shrink but don’t disappear, so it’s easy to gain weight again. CoolSculpting freezes some of your fat cells, safely destroying them so they can’t return. The dead cells break down over time, and your body absorbs them.

CoolSculpting is suitable for reducing fatty areas such as your:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Chin

While it’s not a substitute for weight loss, CoolSculpting is perfect for refining your figure when you’re a healthy weight.

What is Emsculpt?

Emsculpt’s body contouring treatments reduce fat and build muscle in just 30 minutes. When you perform any physical activity, your muscles tense and contract, causing small amounts of damage. Your body responds to the wear-and-tear by repairing and rebuilding muscle, improving overall strength and tone.

Emsculpt technology accelerates this process. It uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic currents that produce continuous muscle contractions. One Emsculpt treatment is the same as doing 200 sit-ups daily for a year (or 20,000 sit-ups at once).

Emsculpt is particularly good on large areas of muscle like the abdomen and buttocks and for reducing your waist.

What does body sculpting involve?

CoolSculpting and Emsculpt body sculpting treatments are noninvasive and cause minimal discomfort. They don’t require any special preparation beforehand or downtime afterward.

During CoolSculpting treatment, your Soine Dermatology & Aesthetics provider puts a gel pad on the treatment area and uses vacuum suction to pull fatty tissue into an applicator cup. The applicator cools the fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. You feel an intense cold at first, but the skin soon goes numb.

With Emsculpt, your provider puts the device’s applicator on your skin, and the electromagnetic energy causes the nerves to contract your muscles repeatedly. The results are natural because they arise from direct muscle stimulation.
