Contoura, an FDA-cleared non-surgical body contouring procedure, uses the power of radiofrequency energy to target and damage stubborn fat cells. After a few Contoura treatments, clients will notice substantial reduction in body fat. Contoura also provides skin-tightening benefits, making it an ideal treatment for clients who want to minimize the appearance of loose skin on the stomach, thighs or buttocks.
How Does It Work?
The secret to Contoura rests in the energy of the radiofrequency the device emits. When this energy penetrates the dermis, it damages clustered fat cells. These damaged cells shrink in size, and the body’s metabolic processes removes them over time. After a few sessions, clients will notice that their clothes fit more comfortably.
The radiofrequency energy also emits heat, which causes the skin to contract and tighten. Clients who have loose skin can see a lot of improvement with Contoura treatments, as the skin-tightening effect minimizes the sagginess of loose skin.
What to Expect from Contoura
Contoura treats the designated area simply. Based on your treatment area, your technician will either use:
- Contoura BodyFX for treating larger body areas, like the stomach and thighs
- Contoura MiniFX for treating smaller body areas, like underneath the chin, knees or bra fat
The length of treatments values depending on the number of areas treated. During your treatment, you may notice a slight heating sensation when the Contoura device contacts your skin. The heat acts as evidence of the radiofrequency’s penetration into the dermis, which targets fat cells and triggers skin tightening.
Recovery and Results
There is no downtime associated with Contoura; most patients return to their normal routine immediately. You may notice itching at the treatment site, but this should only last for a few days. Results can be seen after your specified number of Contoura sessions, recommended by your physician or technician during your initial consultation.
