In the 1920s, French surgeon Charles Dujarier first introduced the world to body sculpting. Today, body sculpting treatments and fat removal is a popular choice for various medical and aesthetic applications.
If looking at sculpting treatments is entirely new to you, and you are wondering what body sculpting treatments are or which one is right for you, The Skin Nurse has all the information you need.
At The Skin Nurse, we specialise in bringing your best skin to the surface by restoring, repairing and rejuvenating it. We believe your skin already holds all the power within, and through a range of customised treatments, we can help you glow from head to toe. Keep reading to learn what body sculpting entails, its benefits, and which body sculpting treatment is right for you.
What is body sculpting?
A body sculpting treatment is what we call a treatment that helps get rid of excess fat and reduces its appearance in specific areas of your body.
Treatments for body sculpting work to restore your skin and help define your body’s contour without the need for invasive surgery, downtime after the procedure, or visible scarring afterwards.
How does body sculpting work?
Non-invasive technology used in body sculpting treatments kills fat cells beneath your skin. The process means controlled and targeted fat reduction, tissue remodelling, muscle stimulation, and skin tightening any areas of concern on your body.
Typically, non-surgical body sculpting treatments are painless and more convenient as there is no extended recovery time after a procedure. Sculpting treatments also improve your skin’s appearance instead of leaving you swollen and tender like traditional body sculpting surgeries.
Body sculpting treatments are your best option, whether your goal is weight loss, toning up after pregnancy, or removing stubborn cellulite that healthy diets and regular exercise don’t seem to have any effect on.
Types of body sculpting treatments
At The Skin Nurse, we offer two types of body sculpting treatments at our leading skin clinic in the heart of Perth:
- Sculpt X
- Skin Needling
What to expect during a body sculpting treatment?
One of the primary benefits of the Sculpt X technology for body sculpting is that it is a non-invasive procedure requiring no pre or post-treatment preparation.
Sculpt X is an FDA-approved technology tested and deemed safe by reputable scientific methods (MRI, CT, US and Histology). The treatment offers a 16 per cent average increase in muscle mass and a 19 per cent average fat reduction.
After a one-on-one consultation with you, a qualified professional at The Skin Nurse will determine the number of treatment sessions you’ll need to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Once you have a treatment plan, each Sculpt X body sculpting treatment session will take roughly 20-30 minutes and is personalised.
Skin needling for body sculpting uses micro-needling to generate collagen and new skin tissue, creating smoother, firmer, toned skin.
Microneedling may sound scary, but it’s a safe and effective procedure that can improve the appearance of scarring, reduce cellulite and boost blood circulation.
When will I see the results of my body sculpting treatment?
Can you imagine putting in zero effort and doing 20,000 crunches in just 30 minutes? That’s what Sculpt X does! With Sculpt X, you will feel the tangible results immediately after a treatment session.
However, the aesthetic results will only be noticeable after two to four weeks following your last Sculpt X treatment. Your skin will also continue to improve several weeks after your Sculpt X body sculpting sessions.
You will notice your skin looking healthier and restored between four and six weeks after your skin needling treatment for body sculpting. This waiting period allows your skin to rejuvenate and generate new collagen.
How long will the results last?
A Sculpt X body sculpting treatment has long term effects for fat loss in your abdomen area because the treatment destroys fat cells, and they aren’t able to return.
Other results of the Sculpt X treatment, such as improved muscle tone, will last for at least six months; however, you can extend the results by living a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a nutritious, balanced diet.
Generally, you can expect the results of micro-needling treatments to last for three to five months. The treatment results lasting depends on two factors: first, how long new collagen lasts in your skin, and second, the severity of your skin concerns.
