If you are looking to finally achieve your aesthetic and weight loss goals, you might not be the only one! In the U.S., “exercise more,” “eat healthier,” and “lose weight” are just some of the most common resolutions.

How many times have you promised yourself to achieve these goals and fallen short? This circle does nothing more than affect your confidence and self-image.

There’s another way to stick to your weight loss goals, tackle stubborn fat, and achieve a silhouette you can be confident in.

When paired with diet and regular exercise, body sculpting can target those areas you are the least happy with and give you the confidence to start looking and feeling your best. 

Laser body sculpting treatments are non-invasive procedures that can help you get rid of stubborn, exercise-resistant fat. Laser body contouring treatments are entirely personalized to your needs and can be performed on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, arms, belly, hips and thighs. 

Thanks to a specialized device, a fat melting laser is used to target those areas most resistant to diet and exercise, giving you the shape you desire most.

Since laser body sculpting procedures are nonsurgical, there will be no anesthesia or incisions. Additionally, you will experience only mild discomfort during the treatment and enjoy little to no recovery time.

During laser body sculpting procedures, stubborn fat cells are targeted via a high-temperature laser, which damages their structural integrity. You will see the real results up to 12 weeks after the procedure.

In fact, after the cells are permanently damaged, it is easier for your body to dispose of them via the lymphatic system, but this process can take several weeks. 

Laser body contouring procedures can be completed in just under 30 minutes, and you won’t have to deal with any discomfort or long recovery times. Within two to six weeks after the treatment, you will start seeing results, including a more defined body silhouette, reduced stubborn fat, and a leaner, more toned appearance. According to some studies and statistics, patients can expect up to a 24% reduction in fat.
