Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring procedures slim and sculpt your physique. These nonsurgical treatments aim to reduce unwanted fat, tighten lax skin, and tone your body’s contours with little to no downtime. At Internal Medicine Partners, you have multiple body sculpting options to trim your abdomen, hips, thighs, and other areas that are difficult to target with diet and exercise alone.

Which body contouring treatment is right for me?

Internal Medicine Partners offers several body contouring options, including:

Emsculpt®

Emsculpt uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to strengthen and build muscle fibers. This noninvasive treatment takes just 30 minutes and can tone your abdomen, arms, thighs, and many other areas without downtime. 

Emsculpt NEO

Emsculpt NEO combines HIFEM with radiofrequency (RF) energy to build muscle and reduce fat.

Emtone

Emtone uses thermal and mechanical energy to reduce the appearance of cellulite. This device is the first and only noninvasive treatment to simultaneously target all major contributing factors to cellulite. 

I have a body contouring appointment. How should I prepare?

Taking a few extra steps to prepare for your body contouring appointment can ensure a comfortable, effective experience. Before your appointment:

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing
  • Follow any specific pre-procedure instructions
  • Stay hydrated
  • Avoid alcohol and cigarettes

Emsculpt, Emsculpt NEO, and Emtone require little to no preparation compared to other body contouring treatments. You don’t have to arrange a ride home or set aside recovery time.

What can I expect from body contouring?

Body contouring treatments typically don’t require anesthetics. Once you’re relaxed, your doctor positions the device over your treatment area. If you choose Emsculpt or Emsculpt NEO, the device releases energy directly into your muscle and fat. This process stimulates thousands of involuntary muscle contractions, which feels like an intense workout.

Emtone delivers RF energy into the area, so you may feel a mild warming or tingling sensation, but the treatment shouldn’t cause pain.

How long do body contouring results last?

Body contouring results can last for up to one year. While fat cells can’t return once removed, new ones can develop. Diet and exercise are essential to maintain your results. Depending on your body type, fat distribution, and goals, your doctor may recommend up to four treatments spaced 1-2 weeks apart.
