Body Contouring After Weight Loss

Body Contouring After Weight Loss at Siti Med Spa in San Diego

Everything you read about weight loss suggests that the moment you lose the weight, you’ll feel great about stepping into a teeny bikini. But this isn’t always the case. If you’ve recently experienced weight loss, you may be disheartened by a resulting increase in cellulite or stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go away. Frustrating, isn’t it? We understand. The health benefits of your weight loss are certainly worth the effort it takes to lose weight, but it makes sense that you want to feel great about the way you look, too.

At Siti Med Spa, we offer JuVaShape body contouring, a minimally invasive procedure that helps to reduce cellulite, contour the body, and tighten the skin, giving you the confidence to finally step into that teeny bikini—and feel great about it.

Why cellulite increases with weight loss

In order to understand why cellulite sometimes increases with weight loss, it’s important to know what causes cellulite in the first place. Cellulite is caused by fat deposits beneath the skin that push up through the layers of connective tissue. The fat becomes compressed, and the connective fibers become hardened. These conditions cause the dimpled “cottage cheese” look of cellulite.

So why does cellulite increase with weight loss? Well, it doesn’t always. For some people shedding pounds improves their cellulite. But there are also some for whom cellulite becomes more pronounced after weight loss, particularly those who begin with a lower BMI and who lose smaller amounts of weight. The appearance of cellulite may also increase in those with lower skin elasticity.  

Whether you’re concerned about cellulite or just want to address the small stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise alone, we can help!

Introducing your new best friend…JuVaShape

JuVaShape uses Dialectric Heating to transmit concentrated radiofrequency (RF) energy deep into the tissue, melting away stubborn fat cells and breaking up those hard connective fibers responsible for cellulite. JuVaShape also provides volume reduction, stimulates collagen growth, and tightens skin. It’s a wonderful solution for those seeking additional body contouring after weight loss, but it’s not necessary to shed pounds before reaping the benefits of this body contouring procedure. It’s important to note, however, that significant weight gain after JuVaShape treatment will dramatically decrease the results.  

JuVaShape can be used to tighten and smooth any part of the body where you want to refine your contours or reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Common JuVaShape treatment areas include:

  • Thighs

  • Buttocks

  • Arms

  • Belly

  • Back

  • Love handles

  • Chin and neck

During the procedure, your practitioner will gently sweep the laser across your skin. You’ll feel it warming you deep within your tissue. Many of our patients compare the sensation of the JuVaShape procedure to that of a hot stone massage. A single session takes approximately 10-20 minutes per treatment area, and optimal results are typically achieved with one session per week for 4 to 6 weeks.

Get ready to step into that teeny bikini—and feel great about it!

At Siti Med Spa, we’ll always be the first to congratulate anyone who loses weight by eating right, working hard, and making important lifestyle changes. But we’ll also be the first to say there’s nothing wrong with getting a little help where you can.
