Discover the Magic: How Does Body Contouring Work? | Still Well Med Spa

Body contouring has become a highly regarded method for those looking to sculpt their desired figure. As interest in this technique increases, so does curiosity about its mechanisms. At Still Well Med Spa in Staten Island, NY, we excel in these transformative practices, offering expertise and skill to highlight the fundamentals of body contouring. Our goal is to help you navigate the complexities of this process so you understand the technologies that can facilitate the reshaping and enhancement of your physique.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring refers to various treatments designed to reshape, tighten, and enhance the body’s appearance without surgical intervention. Non-surgical body contouring treatments aim to reduce fat, improve skin laxity, and enhance muscle tone, offering a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical methods like liposuction. These treatments are popular for those looking for aesthetic improvements without the downtime, risks, and recovery associated with surgery.

How Does Body Contouring Work?

Non-invasive body contouring employs various technologies and methods to target specific concerns. These methods work without any invasive surgical procedures:

Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing)

Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells to death while preserving the surrounding tissues. Over the weeks following treatment, the body gradually eliminates these cells, reducing fat thickness in the treated areas. This method is particularly effective for targeting stubborn fat pockets that resist diet and exercise.

Laser Lipolysis

Laser lipolysis applies laser energy to heat fat cells until they are damaged and absorbed by the body. Beyond fat reduction, this treatment promotes collagen production, improving skin tightness and texture. It offers a non-invasive alternative to traditional liposuction with the added benefit of minimal recovery time.

Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments

RF treatments deliver controlled energy to heat the deeper layers of skin, stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. This dual action not only tightens and firms the skin for a rejuvenated appearance but may also affect fat cells to a lesser degree, offering a comprehensive approach to body contouring.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

HIFU technology targets subcutaneous fat layers without surgery, using ultrasound energy to disrupt fat cells and stimulate collagen, leading to tighter skin and reduced fat. It’s versatile for use across various body parts, including the abdomen and thighs, and is celebrated for its effectiveness in non-surgical facelifts.

Electromagnetic Muscle Stimulation

Represented by technologies like EMSCULPT, this innovative approach harnesses electromagnetic energy to induce rapid muscle contractions, enhancing muscle density and volume while encouraging fat reduction. Ideal for improving the definition of the abs or lifting the buttocks, it offers a non-invasive route to a more sculpted physique.

Which Types of Body Contouring Treatments Do We Provide?

Navigating the landscape of body contouring treatments can be overwhelming, given the options available to sculpt and refine your figure. Here, we specialize in diverse types of body contouring, each designed to meet different needs and aesthetic goals.


EMSCULPT NEO is a cutting-edge, non-invasive body contouring treatment designed to simultaneously build muscle and reduce fat. It significantly advances aesthetic treatments by combining high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology with radiofrequency heating. 

The HIFEM technology stimulates powerful muscle contractions that are not achievable through voluntary workouts, increasing muscle density and volume. Concurrently, RF heating specifically targets fat cells, raising their temperature to a level where they are damaged and subsequently removed from the body naturally.

This dual-action process not only helps sculpt a more toned and defined physique but also achieves noticeable fat reduction in treated areas, all without the need for surgery or downtime. EMSCULPT NEO stands out for its efficiency and effectiveness, offering a revolutionary approach to body shaping that caters to a wide range of individuals looking to enhance their physical appearance.


EMTONE is a treatment designed to reduce cellulite and improve skin texture. It combines radiofrequency and targeted pressure energy to heat the skin and underlying fat, which encourages collagen and elastin production. 

The treatment also improves blood circulation and targets the factors contributing to cellulite’s appearance. EMTONE is suitable for all skin types and can be used on various body parts, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms. It’s particularly noted for its ability to address cellulite’s causes and visible symptoms without downtime.


Kybella is an injectable treatment specifically designed to reduce fat under the chin, known as submental fullness or a “double chin.” The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. 

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The treated cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once the desired aesthetic outcome is achieved. Kybella can provide a more defined jawline without the need for surgery.
