Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring (body sculpting)?

Body contouring, or body sculpting, is the process of refining the shape of your body by eliminating certain fat cells. This approach requires no surgery, no anesthesia, no advance preparation, and no downtime. 

Body contouring (body sculpting) is quickly becoming one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the nation, and for good reason. The ability to improve the shape of your body without the risks and expense of surgery is an exciting prospect. 

Why is it so hard to lose fatty deposits?

Everyone’s body stores fat a bit differently, and your trouble spots may not be the same as those of friends or family members. To understand body contouring, it helps to think about the role that fat cells play within the human body.

Your body has fat cells distributed all over. Most of those cells lie in a layer just beneath your skin. Each fat cell has the ability to expand and contract to accommodate more or less fat. 

Everyone has fat cells, and when you consume more calories than you need, much of the excess is converted into fat and stored away for later use. When you burn more calories than you take in, those reserves of fat are tapped to provide the energy you need to thrive.  

Diet and exercise can shrink your fat cells, but there’s no way to direct your body to target cells in a certain area. That means you might lose inches quickly around your waist, yet struggle to get rid of love handles or fatty deposits in your upper arms. 

How does body contouring (body sculpting) work?

Star Body uses a treatment called ultrasonic cavitation to reduce the number of fat cells in your body. This approach is often referred to as nonsurgical liposuction. While ultrasonic cavitation cannot remove the same volume of fat as surgical liposuction, it does have the ability to transform certain areas of your body by eliminating lingering deposits of fat. The results are visible and measurable.

The process uses ultrasonic waves to create heat deep within your layer of fat cells. That heat destroys a portion of the targeted cells. 

Once the cell walls have been breached the accumulated fat simply drains into your bloodstream. Your lymphatic system clears out the cellular debris. The process is safe, effective, and permanent. 

How does Lipo Sculpt Lite help with body contouring?

While ultrasonic cavitation uses ultrasonic waves to destroy fat cells, Lipo Sculpt Lite uses LED light to damage them. Both options are best used together to lead to permanent fat cell reduction; the different techniques combine to achieve the goal. 

Lipo Sculpt Lite can also help eliminate cellulite, which is a common treatment goal. Traditional liposuction can remove large volumes of fat, but does nothing to address cellulite.
