Non-surgical body contouring, such as PHYSIQ, is a popular procedure that helps people achieve their desired body shape without the need for surgery. These procedures have been growing in popularity for some time, with more than 150,000 performed in 2018. But one of the most common questions people have about this procedure is whether or not it is painful. In this blog post, we will explore the answer to this question and discuss what you can expect during your non-surgical body contouring treatment.
What Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?
Non-surgical body contouring is a minimally invasive procedure that uses advanced technology to target and reduce fat deposits in specific areas of the body. At Contour, we use only the best for our patients, which is why we offer PHYSIQ, the newest and most advanced body contouring on the market today.
PHYSIQ uses a patented technology called Sequential Thermal & Electrical Pulse (or STEP) to target stubborn areas of the body where exercise and diet may not be enough to reach your desired look. STEP programs are customized sequences of deep heat and electrical muscle stimulation to maximize body contouring results while minimizing treatment time.
This process can reduce fat in the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks. In addition, it is a safe and effective way to achieve a more sculpted and toned appearance without undergoing surgery or liposuction. Patients enjoy that these procedures require very little downtime and can offer outstanding results, typically with results visible after even one session.
Does Non-Surgical Body Contouring Hurt?
The good news is that non-surgical body contouring treatments are generally not painful. Although many treatments on the market can affect patients differently, PHYSIQ has a unique patient control feature to ensure optimal comfort during treatment. Many patients report feeling warmth at the application site but note that this treatment is pain-free and very comfortable.
What Can You Expect After Treatment?
After your non-surgical body contouring session, you may experience minor side effects, such as redness or swelling in the treated area. This should subside within a few days after your session and can be managed with cold compresses or over-the-counter pain medication if needed.
Results from non-surgical body contouring treatments typically become visible within two weeks after your session. They can continue for up to 3 months afterward as your fat cells are gradually eliminated from your system. We recommend a series of 5 treatments spaced 1-2 weeks apart for optimal results for most patients. Although each patient is different, some find they are pleased with their results after only 2-3 sessions.
