The Ultimate Guide to Body Contouring: Sculpting Your Dream Body

Body contouring has revolutionized the way we approach weight loss and body shaping. With many devices and technologies, navigating the options can be daunting. Pure Med Spa in Medford, Oregon, is dedicated to providing you with the most advanced solutions to achieve your dream body. In this blog post, we’ll explore body contouring, differentiate between fat reduction and muscle-building devices, and introduce you to our state-of-the-art machines: EMsculpt NEO, EMsella, Exion Body, and CoolSculpting Elite.

Body Contouring: What is it?

Body contouring refers to the non-invasive or minimally invasive reshaping of the body. Procedures include fat reduction, muscle building, and skin tightening, all aimed at helping you achieve a more toned and sculpted figure.

Target Fat Loss Devices vs. Muscle Building Devices

Body contouring devices generally fall into target fat loss and muscle-building devices. Target fat-loss devices like CoolSculpting Elite focus on eliminating unwanted fat cells while muscle-building devices such as EMsculpt NEO are designed to strengthen and tone muscles. Understanding these distinctions helps you select the most suitable treatment for your goals.

Device Descriptions

1. EMsculpt NEO

  • Description of technology: EMsculpt NEO is a cutting-edge device that combines High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology with radiofrequency energy. The HIFEM technology induces intense muscle contractions, strengthening and toning muscles while promoting fat reduction. Radiofrequency heating complements this by reducing superficial and visceral fat, making it an effective dual-action treatment.
  • Efficacy: Clinical studies have shown an average of 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat, a 19% reduction in visceral fat, and a 25% increase in muscle volume.
  • Best candidates and uses: EMsculpt NEO is ideal for individuals looking to tone muscles, reduce fat, and enhance athletic performance.
  • Areas that can be treated: Abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs.
  • Contraindications: Not suitable for those with pacemakers, metal implants, or for pregnant/breastfeeding women.
  • FDA clearance: FDA-cleared for strengthening muscles and reducing fat.

2. EMsella

  • Description of technology: EMsella uses HIFEM technology to stimulate pelvic floor muscles with high-frequency electromagnetic waves. This helps improve urinary incontinence, sexual health, and pelvic floor strength by inducing thousands of muscle contractions per session.
  • Efficacy: Studies have reported a 95% improvement in quality of life for those with urinary incontinence after six treatment sessions.
  • Best candidates and uses: Ideal for individuals experiencing urinary incontinence or seeking to improve their pelvic health.
  • Areas that can be treated: Pelvic floor muscles.
  • Contraindications: Not suitable for those with pacemakers, metal implants, or for pregnant/breastfeeding women.
  • FDA clearance: FDA-cleared for treating urinary incontinence.

3. Exion Body

  • Description of technology: Exion Body employs radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, which triggers collagen production and skin tightening. The result is improved skin texture, reduced fine lines, and overall contouring of the body.
  • Efficacy: Clinical studies have reported up to 38% improvement in skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Best candidates and uses: Ideal for individuals seeking to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and enhance body contours.
  • Areas that can be treated: Face, neck, arms, legs, and abdomen.
  • Contraindications: Not suitable for those with pacemakers, metal implants, or for pregnant/breastfeeding women.
  • FDA clearance: FDA-cleared for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.

4. CoolSculpting Elite

  • Description of technology: CoolSculpting Elite uses cryolipolysis technology to target and freeze fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body over time. The dual applicator design allows for treating multiple areas at once, making it highly efficient for fat reduction.
  • Efficacy: Clinical studies show an average fat reduction of 20-25% in treated areas after a single session.
  • Best candidates and uses: Ideal for individuals looking to reduce stubborn fat pockets for a more refined silhouette.
  • Areas that can be treated: Abdomen, love handles, arms, legs, and chin.
  • Contraindications: Not suitable for those with specific medical conditions or for pregnant/breastfeeding women.
  • FDA clearance: FDA-cleared for fat reduction.

Synergy: Using Multiple Devices for Optimal Results

Combining multiple devices can yield exceptional results. For instance, using CoolSculpting Elite to target abdominal fat while employing EMsculpt NEO for core strengthening can significantly enhance muscle definition and contouring.

Competitor Devices: Why They Can’t Compare

While various body contouring devices are available on the market, the advanced technology offered by Pure Med Spa stands out for its superior precision and results. Here’s a closer look at the top four competitors and why they fall short compared to the cutting-edge devices we offer:

  1. SculpSure
  2. Comparison to CoolSculpting Elite: Both devices aim to reduce fat, but SculpSure uses laser technology to heat fat cells, whereas CoolSculpting Elite uses cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells. CoolSculpting Elite’s dual applicators allow treatment of larger areas in less time, while SculpSure requires more sessions to achieve comparable results.
  3. Why It Can’t Compare: Clinical studies have shown CoolSculpting Elite to be more effective, achieving higher fat reduction rates than SculpSure, which struggles to consistently achieve visible results in many areas. The precision of CoolSculpting Elite’s applicators makes it the superior choice for localized fat reduction. SculpSure is also extremely painful! Run away!
  4. Vanquish ME
  5. Comparison to Exion Body: Vanquish ME uses radiofrequency energy to target fat cells, similar to Exion Body. However, Exion Body’s advanced technology targets fat cells and stimulates collagen production to tighten the skin.
  6. Why It Can’t Compare: Vanquish ME lacks the same level of precision in targeting both fat and skin elasticity, which limits its effectiveness for patients looking to contour and tighten their bodies simultaneously.
  7. truSculpt Flex
  8. Comparison to EMsculpt NEO: TruSculpt Flex uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to target muscle groups. EMsculpt NEO employs a far more powerful and penetrating HIFEM technology combined with radiofrequency for deeper muscle contractions and simultaneous fat reduction.
  9. Why It Can’t Compare: EMsculpt NEO has been clinically proven to achieve superior muscle toning and fat reduction results, with studies showing a significant increase in muscle mass and reduction in fat. TruSculpt Flex is limited to muscle stimulation and lacks EMsculpt NEO’s dual-action approach for dual muscle building and fat loss.
