Body contouring has been steadily growing in popularity (among everyone from celebrities to soccer moms). Nowadays there are various methods for shaping and sculpting the body. With so many options to choose from it can be easy to get confused about what works, what doesn’t and which option is best for you.
First, let’s dispel some myths:
Myth: Body sculpting just means surgical tummy tucks or liposuction.
Not true! TDI specializes in non-surgical procedures for specific concerns. Dr. Chiu will help you set realistic expectations for what you can or cannot achieve with these treatments.
Myth: There are only one or two spots you can get body contouring.
Body contouring doesn’t just shape and smooth your thighs and tummy. You can get a wide range of areas treated, including neck, upper arms, chest, back, hips, buttocks, knees and even your ankles. It improves not just fat pockets, but slack skin, and even the appearance of cellulite.
Non-surgical interventions to keep us confident and comfortable with our skin. There are now more interventions than ever for problem areas even OFF the face. The Derm Institute offers solutions for all areas of the body including tightening loose skin on the upper arms, abdomen, knees, smoothing vertical creasing of the chest, and even non-invasive butt lifting!
You have probably heard some of these names: Coolsculpting, Vanquish, Thermage, Exilis, Cellulaze, Smartlipo. These are all body contouring machines designed to tighten the skin, reduce unwanted fat, and smooth the appearance of cellulite. So what sets TDI’s body sculpting procedures apart? Dr. Chiu doesn’t just rely soley on a machine and a technician: she utilizes advanced collagen boosting techniques to make body sculpting more effective and affordable.
At the core of these treatments are Dr. Chiu’s pioneering techniques for off-facial use of Sculptra Aesthetic. Sculptra is a product made of poly-L-lactic acid, which is utilized to stimulate your own body’s collagen production, lifting, tightening, thickening the collagen, and improving the appearance of treated areas. Facial Rejuvenation with Sculptra is one of our most popular procedures at TDI, but Body Sculpt with Sculptra to improve problem areas off the face is becoming more common among our patients.
Dr. Chiu first developed this technique when she noticed increased laxity and loose skin above her own knees! In an effort to tighten and lift the area, Dr. Chiu utilized 2 sessions of Sculptra and achieved great results.
Since then, Dr. Chiu has utilized Sculptra to tighten the upper arms in the tricep area, to improve abdomen skin tightness, to rejuvenate thinning loose skin in the inner thigh area, to smooth vertical creasing of the chest, improve laxity in the armpit area, and even lift the buttock area.
Results of Body Sculpt with Sculptra can also be augmented with Radiofrequency Tightening procedures such as Exilis to smooth and tighten lax skin and Vanquish to reduce unwanted fat areas for full effect body sculpting.
