Did you know that 40% of surveyed Americans have gained weight over the pandemic lockdown? And almost a third of them have gained over 10 pounds.
This national epidemic of weight gain has been playfully nicknamed The Quarantine 15, but it’s no laughing matter for people with a closet full of clothes that don’t fit anymore.
If you’re trying to lose weight these days, you may be considering getting some body contouring help to complement your diet and exercise routine. Of course, there are several different types of liposuction techniques that can help you. However, they start at about $4,900 – $6,900 per treated zone. If you’re looking for something a little bit more affordable, you might consider any of these non-surgical options.
1. VelaShape (VelaSmooth)
These treatments will start at about $1,999 for 3 sessions/ zones.
VelaShape has quickly grown into one of the most trusted names in body contouring, and even become the go-to treatment for Victoria Secret models in the weeks leading up to their big runway shows.
These treatments give patients proven results in fat reduction, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction. Research shows that patients can expect to see an average cellulite reduction of about 50%. You can also achieve a 2 or 3 centimetre circumferential reduction after about 6 to 8 treatments, done once a week.
An hour-long treatment could destroy up to 30% of the fat cells in the treated area, for a very reasonable price that starts at about $799.
These treatments can also be used on multiple parts of the body to help you trim areas such as your:
- Core and stomach
- Hips and obliques
- Outer and inner thighs
- Bra-line and back
- Upper and lower arms
- Double chin/jawline area
Patients can go right back to their daily activities after treatments, with no downtime.
SculpSure treatments generally start at about $499 per session, or you can get a bundle of 4 treatments for $1699.
The average patient can expect results somewhere in the range of a 24% reduction of fat, or a 2-3 cm of circumferential reduction, after a series of 1 to 3 treatments. This often means they will drop one or two pants sizes, or dress sizes.
The treatments are also painless, with no downtime.
4. Venus Freeze
These highly-effective treatments start at roughly $1,999 for a 3 session bundle, or $2,999 for 6 sessions.
The technology relies on an external radiofrequency applicator. An oscillating electrical current from the applicator will warm your skin and soft tissue. This process stimulates collagen and reduces the fat cells in the treated area(s). This leads to fat and cellulite reduction, as well as skin tightening results you will love.
Protecting Your Investment
Which one of these treatments will last the longest? That is entirely up to you.
Your lifestyle will dictate how long your body contouring results will last. It doesn’t matter if you get liposuction or a non-surgical alternative, you are the one in charge of maintaining your results.
The good news is that most patients feel inspired by their new trimmer bodies, and it motivates them to live a healthier lifestyle to keep that look.
