Summer isn’t Over Yet: 3 Must-Have Body Contouring Procedures

3 Must-Have Body Contouring Procedures | Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care

Body contouring and sculpting has never been so quick and easy. We offer a variety of non-invasive and minimally-invasive options to help you achieve your body goals—with results that begin to show before the end of summer. All body contouring options require multiple sessions, but with results that are visible just one month after the first treatment you can look and feel your best in time for Labor Day events. Take a look at our three most popular options, all of which work fantastically with one another. In many cases, it is possible to book back-to-back sessions to make the most of your time and put your sculpting goals on the fast track.


CoolSculpting is the original fat-freezing technology that kills fat cells by exposing them to exacting chilly temperatures. It’s completely non-invasive and calls for targeting treatment sites in a specialized sort of “vacuum” (so it can feel a bit unusual but is pain-free). Even though CoolSculpting technically kills unwanted fat cells, it is not a “weight loss” treatment, but rather designed for sculpting and contouring. The best candidates for CoolSculpting are at or near their goal weight but struggling with stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise alone.

Today, CoolSculpting is better than ever. It kills more fat faster, which means quicker results and potentially fewer sessions. It can also be used just about anywhere on the body, including small areas like underneath the chin. Clients love CoolSculpting because there is no needles or downtime. To gauge your progress, track how clothes fit and measurements rather than the number on the scale—especially if you pair CoolSculpting with Emsculpt.


When Emsculpt became available just a few years ago, it was a total gamechanger. Today, we know that it’s not just about fat reduction, but also muscle gains and tone. However, building muscle can be even more difficult than fat reduction! It typically requires hours in the gym and risk of injury, but not with Emsculpt. This non-invasive technology makes targeted muscles perform 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes per site. That is the equivalent of 20,000 strength moves like lunges or crunches. For your body, there is no difference, so you will definitely have to “feed” those muscles protein right after your session.

Like CoolSculpting, most clients need 4 – 6 initial sessions spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart for optimal results. Then, maintenance sessions every six months can help you sustain results (no maintenance is needed for CoolSculpting). Emsculpt can help you restart a workout regimen or take your current fitness to the next level. It’s a complement to a healthy lifestyle, not a replacement. It’s easy to see why CoolSculpting and Emsculpt are the perfect match, combining targeted fat reduction with muscle toning. But that’s not the only factor when it comes to getting a body you’ll love.
