Body Contouring: Non-surgical Technologies

When you’re looking to sculpt your ideal physique without surgery, body contouring can be an ideal solution. Also known as body sculpting, body contouring includes various techniques that can help reshape and refine specific areas of the body. Whether you want to slim your waistline, smooth out stubborn fat pockets, or define your muscles, nonsurgical body contouring can open the door to achieving your aesthetic goals.

Typical weight loss regimens such as exercise and diet do not allow for the spot-treatment of specific areas of the body. However, with body contouring in Vancouver, it’s possible to transform targeted areas, changing the body’s shape, tone, and silhouette.

How Does Body Contouring Work?

Body sculpting technology harnesses the power of high-intensity electromagnetic energy to contract muscles within the targeted treatment area. At Skin Technique, our skilled professionals place a specialized device on the treatment site, emitting electromagnetic energy that penetrates deep into the muscle tissue. This energy triggers intense muscle contractions, fostering muscle growth and enhancing tone.

During the procedure, muscles undergo vigorous contractions far surpassing what one could achieve through exercise alone. Additionally, body sculpting can promote lipolysis, the breakdown of fat cells, leading to a reduction in fat deposits and further accentuating muscle definition for a more sculpted appearance.

Risks Associated with Non-Invasive Body Contouring Technologies

When performed by a qualified practitioner, body sculpting is generally considered safe, particularly compared to surgical methods requiring incisions and anesthesia. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, weighing the risks against the benefits of body contouring is essential. 

Although rare, risks may include:

  • Rashes or hives: Some individuals may experience mild allergic reactions, resulting in temporary hives or a rash.
  • Discomfort: Following treatment, patients may experience mild pain or soreness, manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • Redness and swelling: Patients may experience temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site. These effects typically subside within a few days after treatment.
  • Dissatisfaction with results: Non-invasive body lift, abdomen contour, and contouring technologies are highly effective for many individuals. However, there is a possibility that results may not meet expectations. In such cases, we may recommend additional sessions or complementary treatments to meet our patients’ goals.

Overall, non-invasive body contouring technologies are a safe and effective means of enhancing one’s body shape with minimal risks. By consulting with our experienced team and following our treatment protocol, you can achieve your desired outcomes and boost your confidence, without facing the risks of surgical interventions.

Should I try Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

Many individuals opt for non-surgical body contouring in Vancouver to address their aesthetic concerns and enhance their appearance. Here are some common reasons why people pursue body sculpting treatment: 

  • Leaner appearance: Diet and exercise alone do not always address stubborn fat deposits. Body contouring allows patients to accomplish a slimmer physique when traditional methods aren’t producing results.
  • Targeted treatment: Highly effective for reducing fat in trouble spots, body contouring addresses specific areas of concern, such as the thighs, buttocks, arms, and abdomen.
  • Improved muscle appearance: With muscle stimulation comes greater muscle definition, enhancing muscle tone and creating a more chiseled physique.
  • Non-invasive treatment: As opposed to surgical procedures like tummy tucks, body sculpting requires no incisions or anesthesia and, thus, minimal downtime and recovery.
  • Skin tightening: Following significant weight loss, body contouring can help tighten loose or sagging skin and stimulate collagen production, improving skin elasticity.
  • Addressing age-related skin issues: In response to age-related skin changes like fine lines, wrinkles, and creases, body contouring can help firm and tighten targeted areas for a more youthful appearance.

Your unique goals and preferences ultimately will dictate your choice of treatment. At Skin Technique, our qualified providers can assist in determining whether body contouring or other treatments are right for you and tailor a treatment plan for your needs.

Non-Invasive Body Contouring Technologies

Skin Technique in Vancouver offers various non-invasive techniques to assist our clientele in achieving their desired outcomes.

Stubborn Fat Treatments

Whereas some types of fat respond to diet and exercise, other forms, such as visceral fat, may be more difficult to lose. Dealing with stubborn fat can be frustrating and defeating, impacting self-confidence.

At Skin Technique, you can reveal your best self via specialized body contouring treatments such as EMSculpt NEO, CoolSculpting®, or double chin treatments that tackle resistant fat. Our compassionate providers are here to help you eliminate the appearance of stubborn fat and achieve the sculpted appearance you want.


CoolSculpting® targets and eliminates fat cells beneath the skin, freezing fat cells and providing lasting results without surgery. Treatable areas include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and more.

Skin Tightening & Contouring

Skin tightening addresses the restoration of skin elasticity lost due to aging, childbirth, or weight loss, while body sculpting targets stubborn fat deposits or bulges. The cutting-edge Morpheus 8 treatment addresses these concerns, applying controlled heat deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production.

What Is the Recovery Time after Body Contouring?

Recovery time after body contouring varies based on the individual and the procedure. Non-surgical treatments like CoolSculpting® or EMSculpt NEO typically involve minimal downtime, with most individuals resuming normal activities immediately. For optimal recovery and results, follow your provider’s post-treatment instructions.

The recovery time following body contouring procedures can vary depending on the specific treatment performed and individual factors, such as overall health and the extent of the procedure. In general, non-surgical body contouring techniques involve minimal downtime compared to traditional surgical interventions.

Following non-surgical body contouring treatments such as EMSculpt or CoolSculpting®, most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately afterward. Minor side effects such as discomfort, swelling, or redness may occur but typically diminish within a few days.

However, it’s essential to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare provider to optimize results and minimize potential complications. These instructions may include avoiding specific skincare routines or strenuous activities as your body recovers.

Ultimately, the recovery time after body contouring varies from person to person and depends on the complexity of the procedure. Consulting with a qualified healthcare provider can provide you with personalized guidance on what to expect during the recovery process based on your individual circumstances.

What Happens after Body Contouring?

Visible results from body sculpting treatments typically emerge within four sessions and continue to improve with time, unveiling a more contoured and defined physique. Treatment may include trimming inches off the waist or thighs, enhancing muscle tone, and precisely addressing fat deposits or cellulite. 

The end result of successful body contouring treatment is smoother, firmer skin, offering multiple benefits:

  • Non-surgical lipolysis, thighs, and fat reduction: This minimally invasive treatment option delivers noticeable, natural-looking results without the risks associated with excess skin removal surgery, lifts, tucks, and other surgical approaches.
  • Minimal downtime: Little to no recovery time allows patients to resume their daily routines promptly.
  • Personalized treatment: Plans address each patient’s unique goals and concerns, from reducing fat deposits to enhancing muscle tone and skin texture.
  • Lasting effects: Gradual improvements enable subtle, long-lasting improvements to one’s body shape and appearance over time.
  • Versatility: From EMSculpt Neo to CoolSculpting®, innovative treatment options use modern techniques to achieve each patient’s goals.

From skin tightening and toning to targeted treatment of specific areas, body sculpting in Vancouver could be the key to achieving your desired physique.
