Surgery for body contouring or lift procedures (like a tummy tuck) is the most long-lasting option to improve loose, sagging, or lumpy skin. However, the effectiveness of nonsurgical body contouring has greatly increased over recent years and can be a great option for those looking for a noninvasive solution to hanging skin. Nonsurgical body sessions with the UltraShape Power or VelaShape III may be done on many areas of the body, such as the stomach, neck, thighs, and arms. The ideal patients for this treatment are those who:
- Are in good general health
- Are near or at a stable, healthy weight
- Have light or medium loose skin on the body
- Have wrinkles or lines throughout the body
- Want to enhance the appearance and health of their skin
- Want to achieve a slimmer silhouette
To begin your session, the skin to be treated will be sanitized to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotions. Local anesthesia options may be considered if you're concerned about pain; however, many patients who feel any discomfort from the technology report that it's temporary and manageable. As soon as you are ready, a handpiece will be evenly passed over the skin several times for an efficient session. The energy from the VelaShape III works to break down the presence of cellulite while the UltraShape Power utilizes radiofrequency to eliminate fat. A session may take around 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. Once your appointment is complete, you'll be allowed to leave and get back to your daily routine.
What to Expect
Following your body tightening treatment, the affected skin can be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is completely normal and will clear up naturally over several days. During your consultation, a member of our skilled team will go over methods to care for the treated skin at home after your session, like keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun or environmental damage. Your final results should appear after several weeks as your body continues to adjust to its slimmer shape. You will probably require several treatment sessions to achieve your ideal look. At your one-on-one consultation, your aesthetician can help create a personalized plan that meets your concerns and goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does nonsurgical body contouring cost?
Depending on how many areas are being addressed, the total costs for one nonsurgical body contouring session will vary. During your consultation, a team member will personalize a treatment plan based on your goals. From there, we will be able to talk about costs. We will also review payments we accept and how you can apply for financing. If you're interested, Body+Beauty Lab offers clients exclusive access to our VIP membership program.

Is the procedure painful?
Throughout your session, you might feel a little warmth, depending on which technology is used; however, you should still feel comfortable. A numbing cream can be applied to your skin before the session, but this is generally not necessary. If you're nervous before your session, ask a team member for more information about the procedure. Typically, few of our clients (if any) report discomfort while being treated with either the VelaShape III or UltraShape Power.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Following a skin tightening procedure, you might experience temporary numbness, inflammation, or redness in the treatment areas. This should fade within a week. Your results will continue to improve for a few weeks after your session as your body adjusts to its new shape. Many patients require multiple sessions to reach their optimal results.
Which is better: the VelaShape III or UltraShape Power?
Both of these technologies are effective for body contouring, but they provide different improvements. While the VelaShape III is primarily used to reduce the appearance of cellulite, the UltraShape Power uses radiofrequency technology to eliminate fat cells throughout the body. Your nonsurgical body contouring procedure could use the VelaShape III, the UltraShape Power, or both, depending on your goals and concerns.
