Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

When you see Waseem for a body contouring session, you’ll soon notice smoother skin surfaces and reductions in body fat. This aesthetic procedure uses heat and cold treatment (such as Cryoskin toning) to:

  • Reduce the appearance of cellulite
  • Tighten and tone skin
  • Minimize wrinkles and fine lines
  • Destroy fat cells

Body contouring heats and cools the skin, getting rid of fat cells and triggering new collagen formation. This new collagen tightens, tones, and rejuvenates your skin to combat signs of aging and stubborn fat pockets. Body contouring is commonly used for the following areas:

  • Stomach
  • Back
  • Face
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Hips

Waseem lets you know if body contouring is a good option to help get rid of unsightly fat pockets, and how many sessions you’ll need to maximize results.

What is a body contouring session like?

You’ll first see Waseem for a body contouring consultation to determine if you’re a good candidate for this type of aesthetic treatment.

When you come in for a body contouring treatment, your session may take about 20-30 minutes. Waseem uses state-of-the-art equipment to apply heat or cold treatment (or both) to your skin to destroys fat cells. These cells travel through your lymphatic system and are eventually eliminated from the body.

During body contouring sessions, you’ll feel sensations of heat or cold while fat cells are destroyed, but discomfort is minimal. There is little to no downtime after your treatment, and you can resume normal day-to-day activities immediately afterward.

You should notice a difference in your skin two to three weeks after your first treatment session when destroyed fat cells are eliminated from the body. However, optimal results may appear after several sessions.

How many sessions will I require?

Waseem may recommend more than one body contouring session to maximize fat loss results and achieve smoother body contours long term. Two weeks after your initial treatment you can come in for additional sessions as needed.

The results you get from Cryoskin and other body contouring treatments last up to several years.
