You deserve to look and feel your best. Body shaping is a great way to reach your goals and feel confident in your own skin. Whether you’re new to the idea of body shaping or have done your research, be sure to ask these seven questions before starting your body shaping treatment.

What is body shaping?

Body shaping, also called body sculpting or body contouring, is a type of treatment that modifies the shape and appearance of your body. Treatments are typically non-invasive procedures that target fat cells and improve the skin’s appearance, helping you appear more slender, toned and tightened.

What are the available treatments?

Knowing your body shaping options will help you choose the treatment that’s right for you! A variety of types of body sculpting services are available, including:

Venus Legacy is a skin tightening and targeted fat destruction solution. It uses multi-polar radio frequency, pulsed electro magnetic fields and VariPulse™ technology to damage fat cells and increase collagen production.

Endermologie is a whole-body improvement solution. It naturally reactivates your skin cells’ metabolism to deliver stunning transformations, and is the only non-invasive mechanical skin stimulation technique to do so.

Ballancer Pro is a lymphatic drainage treatment that benefits a range of aesthetic, clinical, and athletic recovery needs. It’s the only treatment of its kind to offer exact treatment times and precisely calibrated choice of pressure.

M'lis contouring body wrap helps improve your circulatory and lymphatic flow, which also cleanses the tissues and leads to healthy inch loss.

Which body shaping treatment is right for me?

Your unique goals will help determine which sculpting treatment is right for you. Each body sculpting option offers something a little different, and discussing your needs and goals with a specialist will help you choose your best treatment option.

What should I expect during body contouring procedures?

Each treatment enhances the shape of your body in a different way. Venus Legacy feels like a hot stone massage and requires no downtime. Endermologie feels like a deep tissue massage. Ballencer Pro uses a compression garment and feels like a gentle massage. The M'lis body wrap uses a cream and wrap to deeply moisturize your skin. These treatments don’t require surgery, and treatment times vary from about 10 minutes to an hour and 20 minutes, depending on the procedure.

What kind of results can I expect?

Body shaping treatments offer noticeable yet natural-looking results. Venus Legacy typically requires 8-10 sessions when treating your body and 6-8 sessions for your face. Most Endermologie clients need 10-15 treatments over 30-60 days to receive the best results. Ballencer Pro and M'lis body wrap results are typically noticeable after the first session, with best results achieved through a series of treatments. Be sure to talk with a specialist if you have questions about your potential results.

How much does body shaping treatment cost?

Asking how much treatment costs will prevent surprises. Body shaping treatments can cost anywhere from $40 to $300, depending on the treatment type. If you have your treatment performed at Atlas Bodyworks, be sure to join our membership club for awesome deals and discounts!
