What Is Body Sculpting and Is It Right for Me?

No matter how many hours you put in at the gym, some parts of your body are difficult to tone into the exact shape you want them. Transforming these areas might seem impossible, but with body sculpting, it's possible to achieve your ideal look.

So what is body sculpting? A body sculpting procedure is a non-surgical way to address stubborn areas of fat on your body. If you're thinking of adding body sculpting to your business, this guide will show you how it works, and why it's a great choice for you and your clients. 

How Does Body Sculpting Work?

If it isn't surgical, you might be wondering, "how is body sculpting done?"

There are three different ways to body sculpt: freezing, heating, and ultrasound. All three methods work by shrinking and killing fat cells in the targeted area. Over time, the client gradually sheds these fat cells.

The ultrasound option is popular because unlike with freezing or heating, the ultrasound option is painless. Heating and freezing can cause stinging and minor irritation, whereas ultrasound feels closer to a firm massage.

Each method will eliminate some fat cells and shrink the remaining fat cells to help minimize their appearance. 

With these non-invasive body sculpting techniques, clients usually see results in three to six months. Most clients will need between 4 and 9 sessions to get the best results, depending on what area you're treating and the client's health level. 

What Is Body Sculpting For?

When you first learn about body sculpting it may seem like a miracle fix for getting the perfect body. However, body sculpting is primarily for toning up areas that exercise and diet aren't affecting. The stomach, thighs, and chin are common areas for body sculpting procedures.

Body sculpting won't prevent future weight gain; if the client gains weight the fat cells that aren't dead can still grow. However, for healthy clients looking for a boost to their exercise regimen, body sculpting is the right choice. 

Is Body Sculpting Right for Me?

Because it is non-invasive, body sculpting is a great option for busy clients who don't have time to recover from a liposuction procedure. A client could have the procedure done on their lunch break and go back to work afterward.

Body sculpting does have some side effects like temporary swelling or itching at the treatment site. However, these side effects don't last more than a few days. 

While it is a useful toning procedure, it works best on otherwise healthy clients. It isn't a procedure for dramatic weight loss or a substitute for gastric bypass surgery. It's also most effective on areas like the chin, stomach, and thighs.
