West Virginia Body Contouring

Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions about our body contouring services.

What is the Contoura Machine?

Body contouring is the fastest rising aesthetic treatment for both men and women. In many cases, patients are looking for improvements in body shape without surgical intervention. Safe and effective, the Contoura is a non-invasive body contouring solution that provides a solution to both permanently kill adipose tissue, tighten the skin, remodel collagen, reduce cellulite and stretch marks

How does it work?

Radio frequency provides precise and optimal heating of the skin for tightening and body shaping. By using heat rather than cooling, the overall texture of the skin changes over time, smoothing the appearance of cellulite. There is no risk for deep riveting, as there is with procedures such as CoolSculpting because heat will distribute evenly; cooling or freezing cells only targets specific fat deposits which can result in an uneven texture when the treatment is completed. 

What should I expect during treatment?

During treatment, you can expect warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radio frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat. This process is well tolerated and soothing to most patients.

How many treatments does it require?

Every patient is different. Most patients see the best results when they receive a series of six treatments however, some results can be seen after just one session.

How long before you can see results?

Patients may start to see results after their first session as the body begins to eliminate the destroyed fat cells, with optimal results usually seen after 6 sessions. Complete results will be seen six to eight weeks after the last session of the series.

How long will results last?

Treated fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and will not regenerate. Skin will continue to firm and tighten for up to eight weeks after the last session.

How long until I can resume normal activities?

There is no downtime following your Contoura treatment, allowing you to resume your daily activities right away.

What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?

The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remains constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but do no decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these troubled areas. After the Contoura treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not return.
