How Does Body Contouring Work?


You spend hours sweating it out at the gym and prepping healthy meals to slim down and tone up – and at first, it worked. The initial signs of progress were exciting, and you even splurged on a new bikini as motivation to push even harder. But recently, you’ve hit a plateau. You feel fit, but your trim physique is hidden behind extra pockets of fat that no amount of diet or exercise can reduce. 

Luckily, there is a solution. At Siti Med Spa, we offer non-surgical body contouring that improves the shape of underlying support tissue and reduces excess fat and cellulite to reveal the smooth contours of your body.

What is body contouring?

While the traditional approach to body contouring involves a series of surgical procedures to remove stubborn pockets of fat or the sagging skin left over after weight loss, there is an alternative. The JuVaShape™ Laser system uses radiofrequency technology to penetrate different depths of tissue and create heat deep within fat cells, subsequently destroying them.

Additionally, the supportive framework of the skin is tightened through contraction of collagen fibers. JuVaShape™ results get better with time as the body’s healing response kicks in and boosts collagen production. There’s no down time, and patients are cleared to resume their normal activities the same day.

Over the course of a few treatments, depending on the area treated, you’ll notice a reduction in cellulite, tighter skin, and softened fine lines and wrinkles. The best part: it doesn’t hurt a bit. In fact, many patients describe the sensation of the JuVaShape™ Laser being swept across their skin like a relaxing hot stone massage.

What parts of the body can be contoured?

The JuVaShape™ Laser system can be used on virtually any part of the body, including the neck and face. The abdomen, upper thighs, upper arms, hips, and intimate areas are all commonly treated to effectively:

  • Firm and rejuvenate the skin

  • Reduce the appearance of cellulite

  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks

  • Contour the facial skin

  • Reduce the appearance of jowls

  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles

  • Remove unwanted fat deposits from the body

Who will benefit from body contouring?

Body contouring with the JuVaShape™ Laser system can produce incredible results for the right candidates. The best candidates are adults in good health and who practice a healthy lifestyle. For those who want to use body contouring to tighten sagging skin following significant weight loss, it’s important to do so only once the weight loss has stabilized. JuVaShape™ candidates should have a positive outlook and realistic aesthetic goals, and be willing to commit to a healthy lifestyle of proper nutrition and exercise after treatment.
