What’s the first thing you picture when you think about body sculpting and facial contouring?

You could ask 100 people that question and receive a different response from each one – and they’d all be right. Liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, breast augmentation, facelift, nose job – the list goes on. 

The problem with those answers is that they only showcase half of what body sculpting and facial contouring is all about – and it’s usually the half most people try to avoid. Invasive surgeries, long recovery periods, unnatural results – what if we told you there was a better way? 

A non-surgical alternative. 

Don’t worry, Staten Island – Reforma Dermatology has you covered. 

The facial and body contouring industry has undergone quite a makeover in recent years. Don’t get me wrong – surgical procedures are still extremely popular (and necessary, in some cases), but they’re not the only option anymore.

Not with the technology we have today. 

Microneedling, radiofrequency energy, electromagnetic energy – the new age of body contouring and facial sculpting has arrived, and we’re about to break down everything you need to know!

Microneedling Technology: Healing the Contouring Industry

The skin has a natural way of healing itself when injured or wounded. In fact, it’s during this process that the skin produces collagen and elastin – the two secrets to healthier, tighter, stronger, and younger-looking skin. 

So, what does this have to do with microneedling? 

Don’t worry – it’s not as harsh as it sounds.

Microneedling refers to the process of poking the skin with tiny microneedles (we’re talking a couple of millimeters long), which stimulates the natural healing process and boosts collagen and elastin.

The idea of having a bunch of tiny microneedles poking you in the face might not sound appealing at first, but it’s designed to be a therapeutic experience with no pain, downtime, or recovery.

Radiofrequency Energy: Heating Up the Contouring Industry

The adult body can do two things with fat cells – enlarge and shrink them. Dieting and exercising regularly are sure ways to shrink them, but there’s one thing it can’t do – eliminate them

So, how does radiofrequency treatment combat this? 

With heat. 

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy utilizes energy waves to heat the dermis (middle layer of skin) – not only damaging the fat cells within it, but also eliminating them (as if they were never there). 

As an added bonus, RF energy stimulates the body’s natural healing process, which increases collagen and elastin production – much like the microneedling procedure discussed above. 

Electromagnetic Energy: Stimulating the Contouring Industry

Like fat cells, the body can do two things with muscle cells – enlarge and shrink them. It can’t eliminate them, but a lack of physical activity and poor eating habits will shrink them – which is what we want to avoid!

So, how does electromagnetic energy combat this? 

With muscle contractions. 

Electromagnetic energy utilizes magnetic fields to send electric currents throughout the body – stimulating the muscles to contract at a high rate, which increases muscle mass and tone.  

HIFEM (which stimulates large muscle groups) and HIFES (which stimulates small, superficial muscles) are two examples of this technology – but we’ll talk more about those below.

Emface, Emsculpt, Exion: A Power Trio for the Ages

The natural aging process has a way of robbing us of our beauty, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fight back – and it doesn’t always have to require surgery. We’re living in a new age – a beautiful one!

Here are three of the most popular body and facial contouring treatments in Staten Island today:

Emface is a facial contouring treatment that utilizes synchronized RF and HIFES energy to reduce fat, build and tone muscle, and tighten the skin in the forehead, cheek, jawline, chin, and other facial muscles.

Emsculpt NEO is a body contouring treatment that utilizes RF and HIFEM energy to reduce fat, build muscle, tone the body, and tighten the skin in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and other large areas.

Exion is a whole-body contouring treatment that utilizes monopolar RF energy, microneedling, and ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production – ultimately correcting aging skin.

Non-surgical facial and body contouring treatments are a safer and more natural alternative to surgical procedures – such as tummy tucks, liposuction, and face lifts – but you should speak with your local skincare expert to determine the best course of action for your specific needs.
