What to Expect From Body Contouring Procedures
Non-invasive body contouring options are growing in number. Many are finding these options to be a great means of losing stubborn, exercise-resistant fat and meeting their fat loss goals. But with all the options on the market, it’s easy to get lost. Which body contouring procedures should win your attention and what can you expect from them?
The Hampton Roads Body Contouring Experts
We’ve been serving the body sculpting and fat reduction needs of Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Norfolk since May of 2006. We have multiple systems and modalities for body contouring, allowing us to truly customize to meet your unique needs.
The number of fat cells the body stores typically remains constant throughout adult life. Fat cells shrink as we lose weight, but diet and exercise don’t destroy them. Body contouring procedures like CoolSculpting, Exilis Ultra, and SculpSure destroy fat cells for people who struggle to lose fat in troublesome areas.
CoolSculpting uses cold temperatures to accomplish its goal: the destruction of fat cells. It’s completely non-surgical and non-invasive. Your provider will attach the applicator to the area being treated and freeze the unwanted fat cells in your target area. Once the fat cells are cooled in a controlled way, they die. The dead cells are naturally eliminated from the body over the next 12 weeks.

Our second most popular body contouring treatment is Exilis Ultra. It’s the most capable skin tightening and body contouring system of 2018, and it’s multi-purpose. It can be used to contour troublesome areas like the abdomen or as a powerful face and neck treatment.
For the Body
The need for skin tightening can occur anywhere on the body for numerous reasons. If you’ve lost a good deal of weight or have a post-pregnancy “pouch,” you know how hard it is to tighten loose skin. Toning at the gym doesn’t always work, and professional intervention is needed. Exilis Ultra is a solution. It can be used to tighten and rejuvenate skin anywhere on the body.
For the Face
Exilis Ultra is our “go to” system for face and neck skin tightening and rejuvenation. The skin on the face and neck is delicate and has many contours. Exilis allows us to best customize the procedure for exactly the area you need to tighten, no matter how delicate or shapely.

The SculpSure body contouring treatment is, in some ways, the opposite of CoolSculpting. Instead of freezing away unwanted fat cells, SculpSure heats them up to achieve similar results. Instead of causing a cooling sensation during treatment, it creates a warm and sometimes achy feeling.
