Non-invasive body contouring methods offer an effective means for reducing stubborn pockets of fat, tightening skin, and smoothing cellulite. Prior to their FDA approval, little could be done about excess skin or fat aside from changing one’s diet or opting for costly and invasive surgery procedures.

Dr. Michele Green has helped many patients from around the globe attain ideal body sculpting results without surgery; she will work closely with you to develop a personalized non-invasive body sculpting treatment plan tailored specifically towards meeting your skincare and aesthetic goals.
Non-invasive body contouring treatments offer many advantages over surgical sculpting procedures in terms of speed and reduced risks of side effects and complications. Most non-invasive body sculpting procedures typically have a much faster recovery period – often only one week instead of the three to six weeks needed for surgical contouring procedures – enabling faster transition back to work or exercise routines.
Most non-invasive body contouring treatments rely on one of four technologies to get rid of excess fat from the body: Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing), Laser Lipolysis, Radio Frequency Lipolysis or Injection Lipolysis. Through these non-invasive procedures, fat cells are eliminated through lymphatic system without damaging any other tissues in body. Cryolipolysis uses controlled cooling to eliminate unwanted fat cells while Laser and Radio Frequency Lipolysis use heat or laser energy instead.
Ultrasound technology is another non-invasive body sculpting option used to tighten skin and decrease cellulite. Sound waves stimulate collagen and elastin production which keeps skin tight and firm; it can be used on all parts of the body but particularly effective when targeting abdomens and thighs.
At an ultrasound-based noninvasive body contouring session, an ultrasound machine sends high-frequency waves directly to a targeted area of your body. These waves penetrate skin layers and cause fat cells to vibrate – with these vibrations comes cell membrane rupture and its contents being excreted via lymphatic systems – with results usually permanent after this procedure is completed.
Non-invasive body sculpting treatments utilizing infrared light to warm tissues and shrink short strands of connective tissue that connect skin with fat and deeper structures beneath can tighten loose skin, reduce cellulite appearance, and shrink circumference of treated area.
As with any medical procedure, body sculpting presents risks. These may include damage to nearby tissues, bruising, swelling and discomfort – the best way to minimize them would be choosing an experienced physician and following their guidelines for safe and effective treatments.
