Looking your best can often be about achieving a more harmonious body shape that fits with your aesthetic goals. Body contouring offers a targeted approach to getting rid of unwanted fat and sculpting and toning muscles to give you smooth curves that fit your natural shape. At Columbia Laser Skin Center in The Dalles, OR, we offer two different body contouring options, CoolSculpting® and truSculpt® flex to target your individual concerns.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring focuses on reshaping targeted areas to improve overall appearance, specifically targeting stubborn fat deposits and enhancing muscle tone. Non-invasive body contouring employs techniques like fat freezing and electromagnetic stimulation to effectively address these concerns with minimal downtime and fewer risks than surgery. During an initial consultation, your unique situation is evaluated to discuss suitable non-invasive options, keeping you well-informed and comfortable throughout the process.
What Can Body Contouring Treat?
When it comes to reducing stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise, body contouring offers a compelling solution. The treatments target specific areas such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs, using advanced technology to break down fat cells. This approach can provide noticeable results without the downtime associated with more invasive methods.
Beyond just reducing fat, body contouring treatments can also focus on enhancing muscle definition. Muscle toning treatments stimulate muscle contractions more intensively than traditional exercise, working to improve the appearance and strength of your muscles. This added benefit allows you to refine your look even further, achieving a more balanced and toned physique.
What Areas Can Body Contouring Treat?
- Abdomen: The abdominal area often houses stubborn fat pockets that may be resistant to diet and exercise, making it a common focus for body contouring treatments.
- Back: Body contouring treatments can minimize the appearance of unwanted fat on the back, leading to a more streamlined look.
- Thighs: The thighs are another area where body contouring can be effective; it can help to reduce fat and improve the overall contour of your legs.
- Submental Area: For the region under the chin, non-invasive body contouring can contribute to a more defined jawline by reducing fat in that area.
- Arms: Through body sculpting, the arms can be targeted to tone loose muscles and eliminate excess fat, resulting in a more defined and sculpted appearance.

What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a specific type of body contouring treatment that uses controlled cooling technology to target and freeze fat cells. Once the fat cells are frozen, they eventually break down and are naturally eliminated from the body. This method offers an effective way to reduce fat in targeted areas without surgical intervention.
What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring that offers several advantages. One of the benefits of body contouring through CoolSculpting is its non-invasive nature, which means no incisions, anesthesia, wound care, or significant downtime. The treatment allows for targeted fat reduction, so you can choose where you want to sculpt such as the stomach, thighs, double chin, and more. Multiple areas can be treated during one session, and treatments are not painful or overly uncomfortable.
Who Is the Right Candidate for CoolSculpting?
The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is someone who is generally healthy and close to their ideal body weight but has pockets of stubborn fat that they are interested in getting rid of. It’s important to have realistic expectations, as CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution but rather a treatment aimed at reducing localized fat. Consultation with a qualified professional can help determine if this treatment is the right fit for you.
What Is truSculpt flex?
truSculpt flex is a body sculpting treatment that focuses on improving muscle tone and enhancing muscle definition. Unlike other methods, this treatment uses electrical muscle stimulation to induce deep, powerful muscle contractions that are not achievable through regular exercise.
What Are the Benefits of truSculpt flex?
One of the significant benefits of body contouring with truSculpt flex is its ability to tone muscles in a targeted way. This treatment offers the advantage of customizing the intensity and pattern of muscle contractions, allowing for a more personalized approach to body contouring. It has a three-stage treatment that allows muscles to warm up and cool down, leading to better results with less soreness. Since it’s non-invasive, you won’t have to worry about incisions or a lengthy recovery period.
Who Is the Right Candidate for truSculpt flex?
If you’re looking for non-surgical body contouring methods to improve muscle tone and definition, truSculpt flex might be the right choice for you. Ideal candidates are those who are in good health and already engage in regular physical activity but want to further enhance their muscle tone. As always, a professional consultation is recommended to evaluate if this treatment aligns with your specific goals and expectations.
