Body contouring has been around for a long time. While surgical liposuction is the original form of body contouring, now technology and innovation enable us to contour the body without surgery.
Non-invasive body contouring options are becoming popular across North America because they’re both safe and effective. In some cases, they can accomplish things that surgery cannot (like building muscle with Emsculpt Neo). They also don’t require post-treatment downtime, so treatments are easy and convenient to fit into busy lifestyles.
Body Works Med Spa & Wellness is Atlantic Canada’s only medical spa focused exclusively on non-invasive medical aesthetics and wellness. We help you look and feel slimmer, fitter, and younger while enhancing your quality of life – with no surgery or downtime. Our services permanently reduce fat, build muscle, tighten skin, smooth cellulite, and improve pelvic floor health. Let’s talk about a couple of our devices…
Approved by Health Canada, Emsculpt Neo is the most advanced non-invasive body contouring technology on the market.
In fact, Emsculpt Neo has received awards for being the best non-invasive body shaping technology in the world. This machine has paddle applicators that we apply to the body in areas such as the abdomen, glutes, thighs, calves, and upper arms. By transmitting Radio Frequency (RF) and high intensity-focused electromagnetic (HIFEM+) energies, these applicators reduce fat by the greatest average margin of any non-invasive technology and they build muscle more effectively than any device on the market. For example, on the abdomen, it delivers an average of 30% fat reduction and 25% more muscle on average. A single treatment only takes 30 minutes and the treatment series could have as few as 4 treatments. It may seem too good to be true, but we assure you… it’s true!
We have another body contouring technology called Exilis Ultra.
We apply Exilis Ultra applicators to the face for skin tightening and to the body for skin tightening, cellulite smoothing, and fat reduction.
On the face, it’s a great non-invasive alternative and compliment to procedures like Botox and facelifts. On the body, it’s perfect for addressing those harder-to-reach areas like “bra fat”, love handles, and under the chin. As the newest version of the Exilis technology, Exilis Ultra is delivering satisfaction worldwide. All of our services are approved by Health Canada.
At Body Works Med Spa & Wellness, we love that technology can give people more confidence and improve quality of life. However, there’s a lot of misinformation out there about body contouring and medical aesthetics in general. There’s also a lot of negativity. We believe that everyone has the right to control their own bodies, take advantage of medical and aesthetic advances if they so choose, and feel good about their choices. That’s why we’ve made a list of some of the most common body contouring myths… and we’re busting them!
Myth #1: Body contouring is cheating! People who do that don’t want to eat better or workout
There are so many things wrong with this statement. For starters, there are all kinds of factors that play a role in determining body contour. Age, hormones, stress, and time constraints are a few. We don’t all have the luxury of making diet and workout regimes our top priority, and even if we did, diet and exercise don’t always resolve “trouble areas” on the body. Maybe you’ve never been able to get rid of your belly. Maybe pregnancy shifted things around and you can’t seem to flatten, strengthen, or tighten certain areas anymore. Or maybe you’ve developed a small bulge under the chin in recent years. A healthy lifestyle is important for many reasons, but the reality is that cardio and salad can’t fix all body contouring issues.
Here’s the thing: doing body contouring is no different than getting braces for cosmetic reasons. Advances in technology make it possible to improve appearance and increase confidence. No one should be made to feel bad for taking advantage of these advances.
Myth #2: Unless you change your eating and exercise habits, you’ll just regain the fat you lose.
Fat loss from body contouring is permanent. When it comes to gaining and losing weight, fat cells either expand or shrink. However, non-invasive technologies like Emsculpt Neo and Exilis Ultra target fat cells in a particular area and damage them. The body flushes damaged fat cells out and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. You can still gain or lose weight, but the visibility of this weight will be fairly proportionate to the contour you create with treatment.
Myth #3: Body contouring is too expensive!
Non-invasive body contouring tends to be a more affordable alternative to surgery (not to mention, it’s more comfortable, safer, and there’s no downtime). Non-invasive body contouring also offers a range of technology options at different price points. If you want dramatic results, you cannot expect to pay Walmart prices. This is an investment in you – if you value feeling good about yourself and think that non-invasive body contouring will help, it’s something to explore.
Emsculpt Neo is a premium technology and the most advanced non-invasive body contouring technology on the market. Its fat reduction results are second to none, plus it builds muscle. It can even help repair diastasis recti, which is separation of the abdominal muscles. To get details on exact costs, we suggest booking a free consultation. We can say that when compared to its leading non-invasive competitor, Emsculpt Neo is more affordable, more effective, safer, and it takes less time.
From head to toe, Exilis Ultra is a tried and tested solution to skin laxity and stubborn fat pockets – no invasive procedure required. It creates a younger-looking appearance that includes tighter and smoother skin. Total cost depends on how many treatments a client requires. Financing is available at our clinic.
Everyone has different preferences around how they spend money. Whether you like designer clothes, new cars, fancy trips, nice restaurants, body contouring, or all of the above – who cares! You do you.
Myth #4: It’s selfish to use those resources on yourself.
There are all kinds of excuses about why men and women shouldn’t do body contouring. Some people say that it makes them feel selfish, while others say they have more important priorities. Here’s how we see it: few things are as important as the relationship you have with yourself. How you feel about your body impacts how you think, behave, and even how you treat other people. We think that life is too short to live with negative body thoughts. Emsculpt Neo and Exilis Ultra are as easy as popping into our clinic during a lunch break, evening, or on the weekend for a 30-minute treatment. You’ll start to notice your transformation in a few short weeks.
Myth #5: The “before and after” photos can’t possibly be real.
We would never share a “before and after” photo that wasn’t the real deal. Many of the photos we use at Body Works Med Spa & Wellness show unaltered results from our own clients. Other photos we use come from BTL Aesthetics, the pharmaceutical company that makes our devices. We use state-of-the-art technologies to make you feel slimmer, fitter, and younger. It shows.
Emsculpt Neo and Exilis Ultra aren’t right for everyone. We offer free consultations to ensure that those who want services are good candidates for treatment, have the right treatment plan, and know what to expect. Integrity is one of our core values, so if we can’t help you reach your aesthetic and wellness goals, we’ll tell you that and suggest an alternative if possible.
