What Does Body Sculpting Do? Exploring the Science Behind the Treatments

Body sculpting has become a popular alternative to traditional fat reduction methods, offering aesthetic enhancements without surgery. This non-invasive technique targets and eliminates stubborn fat cells, reshaping the body’s natural contours. Utilizing advanced technologies such as lasers, radiofrequency, and infrared light, modern body sculpting treatments can effectively reduce fat, tighten skin, and enhance overall body appearance.

Here, we will explore the science, process, and benefits of body sculpting, highlighting its role in contemporary aesthetic treatments. Discover how these safe and advanced technologies can sculpt your body and transform your approach to personal aesthetics.

What Is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting, or body contouring, refers to a range of medical or cosmetic treatments aimed at reshaping and improving the body’s appearance. These treatments can target specific areas where fat is resistant to diet and exercise and address issues like loose skin and cellulite. 

What Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

Non-surgical body contouring utilizes advanced technologies to provide fat reduction, skin tightening, and overall body enhancement without incisions or anesthesia. These techniques work by targeting fat cells and stimulating collagen and elastin production with controlled energy. Non-surgical body contouring treatments are minimally invasive, providing a compelling option for individuals seeking to refine their body shape with minimal disruption to their daily lives. 

The Science Behind Non-Surgical Body Contouring

Non-surgical body contouring technologies use various forms of energy to target and eliminate fat cells while promoting skin tightening and rejuvenation. Here’s a closer look at how these technologies generally work:

Energy-Based Technologies

These treatments use energy sources such as lasers, radiofrequency (RF), and infrared light to deliver controlled energy to specific areas of the body. The energy penetrates the skin and targets fat cells, breaking them down without harming surrounding tissues.

Fat Cell Disruption

Once targeted by the energy, fat cells are disrupted and begin to break down. This process, known as lipolysis, results in the destruction of fat cells, which the body then naturally processes and eliminates over time through the lymphatic system.

Collagen Stimulation

In addition to breaking down fat cells, these energy-based treatments stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is a protein that helps keep the skin firm and elastic, while elastin allows the skin to stretch and return to its original shape. By stimulating these proteins, non-surgical body contouring treatments improve skin texture and tightness.

What to Expect During and After Treatment

During Treatment

Non-surgical body contouring treatments are typically performed in a clinical setting and do not require anesthesia. The treatments usually involve applying a device to the targeted area, which delivers controlled energy to break down fat cells and stimulate collagen production. Most treatments take between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas being treated.

After Treatment

Following the treatment, patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately. Some may experience mild redness, swelling, or discomfort in the treated area, but these side effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days. Results may start to become noticeable after a few weeks, with optimal results typically seen after a few months as the body continues to process and eliminate the treated fat cells.

What Do We Use for Body Sculpting?

We provide a range of advanced, non-invasive body contouring technologies designed to help you achieve your desired body shape. Our treatments offer innovative solutions for effective fat reduction, skin tightening, and overall body enhancement. Each of these technologies leverages the latest advancements in aesthetic medicine to deliver safe, efficient, and noticeable results.


invisa-RED is an advanced, non-invasive body sculpting technology that leverages the power of infrared light and near-infrared lasers to reduce fat, tighten skin, and enhance body contours. The infrared light penetrates deeply into the tissue, stimulating metabolic activity and breaking down fat cells. 

This process not only aids in fat reduction but also promotes collagen production, which enhances skin elasticity and firmness. invisa-RED is effective for individuals seeking a more toned and contoured physique without surgery.


SculpSure is a non-invasive laser treatment specifically designed to target and reduce stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and under the chin. This treatment uses a precise laser wavelength to heat and destroy fat cells. The heat generated during the treatment also stimulates collagen and elastin production. 

Over time, the body naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells, leading to a slimmer and more sculpted appearance. SculpSure is ideal for those who struggle with pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.

TempSure® Envi

TempSure Envi is a cutting-edge radiofrequency (RF) treatment that addresses loose skin and wrinkles. By using RF energy to heat the deep layers of the skin, TempSure Envi stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter and smoother skin. 

This treatment is particularly effective for reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but it can also be applied to other areas of the body to improve skin laxity. TempSure Envi is a versatile solution for those seeking a more youthful and firm appearance without invasive procedures.

Trying the stem wave today. Have had issues with my back over 25yrs. I have actually been thru surgery in 2014. It did help me not to end up an involed, but I still suffer with pain. I'm hoping this helps with pain, so I can hopefully get off medication. I'm hoping for less downtime in my life and a more enjoyable life! 😉

Dr. B and Dr. G are constantly exploring new technologies and therapies to provide their patients with state-of-the-art procedures to address everything from aesthetic treatments to pain management. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and it’s evident that they care deeply about their patients’ wellbeing. I underwent StemWave therapy in the office and felt an immediate improvement in my shoulder and knee pain. What I love about AMG and am most impressed with is that they are constantly ahead of the curve in regenerative medicine as an alternative to traditional invasive procedures. At AMG you are treated as part of the family.
