Body Contouring

Body Contouring

Losing weight is best implemented with proper diet and exercise. However, not everyone can easily drop pounds with such methods. For many people, some areas of fat are simply resistant to diet and exercise, which is why non-surgical body contouring treatments may be ideal.

While cosmetic body sculpting is not a weight loss technique, these procedures can be used to eliminate fat in problem areas that regular diet and exercise alone cannot change. In addition, non-invasive body sculpting devices also reduce excess fat in a manner that is relatively painless while allowing successful consistently successful results.

Allison Clement, MD of The Skin Studios in Lake Charles, Louisiana, can provide body sculpting care that is right for you. With the use of specialized equipment, our team is able to give patients alternatives to more invasive procedures such as liposuction without the added downtime. A trimmer, slimmer physique is just a treatment away. Call (337) 474-1220 or contact us online for additional information.

The Eye-Catching Results of Body Contouring

Although body contouring treatment methods help get rid of unwanted fat, it isn’t as effective if dietary and lifestyle changes aren’t incorporated. If a person sticks to a healthy diet and lifestyle, body contouring results can be permanent; however, fat can always return if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle following treatment. In addition, the best candidates for these non-invasive body contouring procedures are people who are at or near their goal weight with stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Types of body contouring treatment devices that we offer include:

  • BodyFX: Using radio frequency treatments in conjunction with negative pressure massage, BodyFX uses precise and optimal heating of the skin for fat reduction, skin contraction, and body shaping.
  • Kybella: This injectable treatment melts fat underneath the chin, allowing patients to achieve a more defined neckline without the need for liposuction.
  • Forma: A radio frequency electrode device that stimulates collagen in targeted areas in order to improve skin elasticity for skin that looks healthy and young for an extended period of time.
  • Forma Plus: Providing the same effective radio frequency treatment as Forma, but with a larger treatment head, the Forma Plus is able to provide skin tightening and fat reducing skin care to larger problem areas.

Not everyone who wants to lose fat is a viable candidate for body contouring treatments. Though body contouring helps to lift light to moderate sagging skin, as well, deeper surgery may be the only option for severely sagging skin due to substantial weight loss. The Skin Studios team will provide a consultation to figure out the best treatment plan for your personal needs. An experienced team is there to guide you to achieving your goals using technology that will lift, tighten, and melt body fat to create a leaner you.

Body contouring treatments can differ from person to person in order to cover full body or small areas and accommodate age, areas of treatment and weight. Body contouring, as well as other body and skin rejuvenating services, are typically not covered by health insurance since they are elective procedures that are also cosmetic. Continued advancements in body sculpting technology are allowing more areas of the body to be treated and in less time than ever before. Learn more about body contouring at

Skin Tightening

Saggy skin treatment improves the epidermis’ elasticity without surgery in a short period of time. A skin lift procedure also provides an improvement in the tone and contour of the body to better support skin and fat.

Non-surgical dermal tightening is ideal for patients who are experiencing lax skin, even after a deep surgical procedure, such as a gluteoplasty. The Skin Studios can help you seek out the ideal treatment plan to meet your desired results. Schedule a consultation for a proper assessment today!

Cellulite Reduction

When people think of cellulite, unattractive bumpiness usually comes to mind, with nicknames such as “cottage cheese” or “hail damage.” Cellulite affects a vast majority of women, regardless of weight. Thin women are just as likely to get cellulite as women who are on the heavier side.

Cellulite is perfectly normal fat that accumulates under the skin in thin or overweight people, causing dimpling and loosening of connective tissue. Although not harmful, cellulite can prove to be an annoyance because of how it looks.

Slow metabolism, lack of exercise, dehydration, and hormonal changes can all cause cellulite, which can be reduced with exercise. However, if cellulite seems difficult to remove, many therapies can help to temporarily reduce its appearance, such as deep tissue massage, laser treatments, and mesotherapy, a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that injects vitamins, minerals, and amino acids into the skin to break down fat.

Dr. Allison Clement at The Skin Studios provide gentle and safe ways to lessen the unsightly collagen. If you suspect that you have built up cellulite that you’d like to banish for good, cellulite reduction may be for you.
