Get the Figure You Want With Body Contouring in Sugar Land

When you think of your dream silhouette, it’s probably chiseled and defined. Hard work at the gym can only do so much to get you there, especially after childbirth, hormone changes, and everything else life has to dish out.
But body contouring in Sugar Land can be the magic tool you use to enhance your figure and achieve a body you’ll be more confident with.

One of the main body contouring solutions we use at our center is BTL Vanquish ME. This treatment uses a highly advanced piece of equipment to help you along your transformative journey. Its benefits extend way beyond traditional methods of body contouring, including no downtime afterward.

You won’t have to wait months for results for months; they happen after your first appointment and will only improve with every subsequent treatment.

After a body contouring treatment with Dr. Shel, tighten the skin, remove excess fat, and accentuate the natural curvature of your body.

Benefits of Body Contouring With Us

Use Advanced Equipment:

using a device that harnesses the power of high-frequency energy, we can target problematic areas and slim down your figure, leaving you with a more distinct shape.

No Downtime:

We offer a treatment that takes less than an hour per session and allows you to return home without stringent restrictions.

Minimal Side Effects:

Our body contouring treatments cause few to no side effects, and any you experience are minimal and temporary. The most common is tenderness at the treatment site from inflammation.

Drop a Clothing Size:

after you complete all recommended sessions, you may drop an entire clothing size, though results vary.

Lose Width:

while everyone responds differently to treatment, you may lose up to two to five inches around your waistline after completing all sessions.

Long-Lasting Results:

body contouring provides long-lasting results as long as you maintain your current weight.

How Does Contouring in Sugar Land Work?

The first step of the process starts with you seeing Dr. Shel for a thorough analysis of your body and goals. During this time, our practitioner will take your measurements, weight, and fat percentage. We may even consider your hydration levels.

If after your assessment, we determine BTL Vanquish ME or another body contouring treatment could help you, our Dr Shel will ask you to lie on the treatment table. At this time, we can initiate the treatment on the same day. If you receive Vanquish, our practitioner will place a device directed at the target area. You won’t feel any pain. You may feel a warming sensation or tingling with Vanquish as it heats the fat cells.

Once the device warms the cells, they rise to between 109 and 113 degrees Fahrenheit, which causes apoptosis (cell death). While that sounds too hot to apply to your skin, it really isn’t. The skin has a naturally high moisture level, causing the temperature that touches your skin to be more relaxed.

Unlike other radio frequency-based systems, Vanquish utilizes a panel array, allowing us to treat the entire abdominal region. Plus, it emits 12x the energy compared to other similar systems, which means it has a high-efficiency rating.
Additionally, Vanquish ME can provide the added benefit of subtle skin tightening due to the tissue heating. Ultimately, this will give you a better shape.

Is Body Contouring in Sugar Land Right for Me?

You can opt for body contouring on your arms, legs, hips, or abdomen, though it’s most effective for treating larger areas, such as your thighs and abdomen. Therefore, if you have a bit of extra weight in those areas, this treatment might be appropriate for you.

That doesn’t say much about whether it works…

So, clinical studies have proven the effectiveness of body contouring through Vanquish.

But is it right for you?

We’ll actually provide you with a thorough evaluation to ensure it’s the most suitable treatment and one that has the highest potential to help you meet your goals.

With that being said, however, only some patients are candidates for this procedure. Typically, you may desire it if you:

  • Have loose skin (usually after a period of extreme weight loss)
  • Have pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise alone
  • Are struggling to get your body back in shape after pregnancy
  • Are near your ideal weight
  • Want a non-surgical solution

As we assess you, we’ll want to know if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding because not enough testing has been conducted to determine if it’s safe during these times.

Those with metal implants in the treatment area or possibly somewhere else may not qualify because the material could interfere with the radio frequencies. Similarly, those with defibrillators or pacemakers won’t qualify due to the potential for interference.

Ideally, your body mass index (BMI) should be less than 30. We will only perform it if it’s higher because you may receive noticeable results.

To qualify, you also shouldn’t have an autoimmune disorder or a history or active case of cancer.

The body you want is possible, even if diet and exercise alone aren’t helping achieve it.

What to Expect From Body Contouring in Sugar Land

At Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center, we’ll make you feel comfortable as soon as you arrive. We want you to genuinely enjoy your experience here and leave looking fabulous or know your target body image is just beyond the horizon.

In total, you can expect to be in our office for about 45 minutes per session. You’ll receive the optimal results after four visits, with a week between each one.

As a body contouring procedure, Vanquish does not require any recovery time. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure.

Mild to moderate redness and swelling in the treatment area may occur, which typically resolves in one to two hours. Tenderness can sometimes arise in the treated area, though this usually resolves in a few days.

The treatment is completely non-surgical, so there will be no incisions and no risk of infection.

Some patients will see results after one visit. You’ll tend to notice an improvement after each subsequent session, but full results usually aren’t seen until you receive all treatments.

Get Your Body Back or Get the One You’ve Always Wanted

Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center is available to help you get bathing suit-ready, look better in and out of clothing, and feel more confident.

Through years of experience, Dr. Shel has developed a comprehensive understanding of human anatomy, received extensive training in body contouring treatments, and has maintained a long track record of helping patients achieve their dream bodies.

And while we’re talking about our practice, we should note that we tailor every body contouring treatment to the patient. For that reason, you receive the highest level of results. Walking into your appointment, you can feel confident that our treatment will provide you with the optimal outcome and get you one step closer to your body goals.

If you’re convinced that body contouring in Sugar Land may be just what you need to love the skin you’re in, call us at (281) 313-7435 for a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Body Contouring and Vanquish ME

Simply put, body contouring is a treatment to shape the body. The treatments in this category work to remove stubborn body fat to reveal a more pleasantly shaped, toned body.

Generally, an ideal candidate is one who wants to obtain a better physique without surgery. You’re also a suitable candidate if you have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30 and have stubborn body fat that won’t go away with diet or exercise. Most people qualify health-wise, but ideally, you should not have any autoimmune disorders, metal implants in the treatment area, or a pacemaker or defibrillator.

The effects of a body contouring treatment are long-term, but you’ll need to maintain the results through diet or exercise, or you could risk fat appearing in that area or another.

Body contouring procedures are cosmetic only and not intended for significant weight loss, especially for those who are considered obese. The results help improve your appearance and won’t aid you in combatting any health problems associated with being overweight. As a result, insurance will not cover these treatments.

As a body contouring treatment, BTL Vanquish ME serves the purpose of removing stubborn areas of fat to improve your figure. It uses radio frequencies that heat the fat cells to temperatures that are dangerous for them but not your skin. These cells then die, and you excrete them, leaving you with a more defined body.

After careful testing and a relatively long history of use, Vanquish has been proven safe. Most people tolerate the treatment well, and not many side effects have been noted. Typically, those negatives are only mild and temporary, and serious side effects are incredibly rare.
