Micro-Body Contouring is a safer, gentler alternative to traditional liposuction. This less-invasive body sculpting treatment uses ultrasound energy to safely dislodge fat. The treatment causes less bruising, bleeding and swelling, and you will remain awake throughout the procedure, which makes recovery faster. Our doctors prefer this method over standard liposuction because it causes less tissue trauma and swelling. The ultrasound energy selectively targets the fat cells and leaves other important anatomical structures intact, such as blood vessels and nerve tissue. It also enables removal of healthy, viable fat cells that can help contour other body parts using our Natural Fat Transfer process.
At Athenix, we use a variety of laser systems to improve treatment results for our patients. Combining lasers* with the Micro-Body Contouring enables superior results and faster recovery. The lasers also help tighten loose skin and seal blood vessels to minimize bruising and swelling. It all adds up to better results and a quicker return to normal activities.
Not every body requires surgery for optimal results, which is why Athenix also offers VelaShape™, a non-surgical solution for body contouring. This breakthrough treatment modality combines infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency to increase fat metabolism and decrease cellulite in targeted areas. VelaShape™ is the only FDA approved device that safely and effectively smoothes and shapes skin, without surgery.
*Use of laser therapy is guided by physician preference and is not utilized by all physicians.
