Age, pregnancy, weight loss, and other normal body changes can affect your body and skin. If you’re looking for a way to achieve a smoother, more youthful appearance after experiencing such changes, body sculpting at Simply Radiant may be the answer. 

What Is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting involves treatments that give you tighter skin and more defined contours. Depending on your aesthetic goals, you may receive multiple treatments for body sculpting.

If you’re interested in body sculpting, we will examine your areas of concern and discuss your desired outcome. We’ll create a personalized treatment plan to help get you closer to the look you want to achieve. 

Body Sculpting Methods

Several treatments work together during body sculpting procedures to give you a beautiful result.

Skin Tightening Laser

Our skin tightening laser is non-invasive light therapy. It works to tighten the skin and deliver a youthful, rejuvenated look. The skin tightening laser is not just for the face; it can work on several areas of the body, including:

  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Breasts
  • Abdomen

After completing laser treatments, patients enjoy tighter, smoother-looking skin. 

The skin tightening laser is a wonderful option for many patients. Patients who have recently lost weight and want to tighten their skin particularly enjoy these treatments. 

No amount of exercise can tighten skin completely. Our skin tightening laser provides the extra help you need to feel your best.

How Does the Skin Tightening Laser Work?

The skin tightening laser goes deep into the tissues with infrared light, causing the collagen and elastin fibers of the skin to lift and tighten. It is gentle yet effective and made for all skin types.

What to Expect Before, During, and After a Skin Tightening Laser Treatment

Before a skin tightening laser treatment, you don’t have to do anything special to prepare. Your skin should be free of any issues on the day of treatment, including sunburn or irritation. 

Patients often find laser treatments relaxing and enjoy their laser procedures. Many even describe the feeling of a hot stone massage.

Treatment times depend on the number of areas receiving laser treatment. You can expect to be in and out in 30 to 60 minutes. 

While full results take some time to see, you’ll likely start to notice results right after your appointment. 

You do not need to do anything after your laser treatment, and there’s no downtime afterward. 

Plasma Pen

Plasma pen treatments are another body sculpting method. The plasma pen is a unique type of treatment for skin and body sculpting.

The plasma pen is one of the most advanced FDA-approved devices for skin lifting, tightening, and rejuvenation. It treats a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, creasing, and sagging. The plasma pen stimulates the body’s production of collagen and elastin — two important components of skin health and appearance. 

We use the plasma pen to treat numerous areas of the body and skin concerns, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Hooded eyelids
  • Drooping jawline
  • Excessive skin on the neck
  • Lines and creases around the mouth
  • Sagging skin around the abdomen

With the plasma pen, you can effectively treat creased and sagging areas to reveal plumper, smoother-looking skin.

How Does the Plasma Pen Work?

The plasma pen uses electrical energy to convert nitrogen into plasma energy. It then transfers the plasma energy into the skin’s surface. This causes mild trauma to the epidermal, or top, layer of skin while also heating the deeper skin layers. 

The process the plasma pen uses to achieve results is called fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the cells that produce collagen. The plasma pen works to stimulate the fibroblasts to create more collagen. This action results in the strengthening of the skin, minimizing lines, wrinkles, and sagging.

The Plasma Pen Treatment

Before you begin your plasma pen treatment, we will go over what to do before and after your appointment and what you can expect.

In anticipation of your plasma pen treatment, we’ll ask you to protect the skin around your treatment area from the sun and avoid using certain products or having specific treatments done. This preparation helps ensure your comfort during treatment and favorable results afterward.

After treatment, there’s no significant downtime. We will give you instructions and tips to help the area heal while you wait to see the results of your plasma pen treatment.

Benefits of Body Sculpting Treatments

Patients who undergo body sculpting treatments enjoy several benefits. Some of the most significant advantages to these procedures include:

  • Little to no downtime
  • Tighter, smoother skin
  • Multiple areas treated at once
  • Improved contours of the face and body
  • Non-surgical alternative with effective results

Body Sculpting Results

Body sculpting results speak for themselves. What you can expect from your body sculpting results and how quickly your results show depend on several factors, including the type of treatment you receive and the areas treated.

For the skin tightening laser, we may recommend multiple sessions to give you the best results. You’ll typically experience the final results of your skin tightening laser treatments a few weeks after your last visit. Results from laser treatments can last a long time, but we may suggest follow-up treatments to maintain your results. 

For plasma pen treatments, you may begin to see some results soon after your visit. Depending on your concerns and goals, more than one treatment may be necessary. Results become more noticeable as time progresses, often taking about three months after treatment to appear completely. 

Plasma pen results are permanent, but as the skin continues to mature, subsequent treatments may be beneficial. 

We can’t wait for you to enjoy your body sculpting results.
