The simple answer is yes, body contouring treatments can produce real, visible results when it comes to slimming, sculpting, and smoothing out trouble spots during your weight loss journey. At Dermestetics in McLean and Arlington, we understand the frustration that often comes with trying to achieve major weight loss goals – dealing with those lingering problem areas like stubborn fat, loose skin, and cellulite dimples. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of body contouring treatments proven to smooth, sculpt, and refine your physique.

Why Body Contouring Works

Even with significant weight loss through diet and exercise, it’s very common for people to be left with areas of stubborn fat, loose skin, cellulite dimples, and other undesirable issues. Body contouring treatments work by directly targeting and treating these remaining concerns using techniques like:


  • Heat/Energy to disrupt fat cells and tighten skin
  • Non-invasive mechanical treatment to improve skin laxity and texture
  • Muscle stimulation to build definition

The body simply cannot address some aesthetic challenges on its own after major weight loss. Contouring treatments provide a way to optimize and refine your results.


What the Evidence Shows

Here are some of the proven efficacy highlights for popular body contouring treatments:


  1. Emsculpt NEO: Clinical studies show it can reduce fat by up to 30% and increase muscle mass 25% in the treated areas after 4 sessions. 
  2. Kybella: Up to 50% of patients achieved a significantly improved chin profile after 6 treatments in clinical trials.
  3. Morpheus8 Skin Tightening: Patients experienced a 38% improvement in laxity/crepiness and a 20% increase in collagen production based on clinical data.
  4. Sentient Sculpt for Cellulite: Over 90% of patients showed improvement in cellulite score after a treatment cycle according to clinical studies.

However, it’s important to note that results may vary depending on factors such as:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Body composition (amount of existing fat/muscle)
  • Genetics
  • Adherence to any recommended diet/exercise regimen
  • Individual responsiveness to the treatment

Some individuals may experience results above or below these averages. This summary represents the typical effects reported across the clinical studies analyzed in the systematic review. Reasonable expectations should be set accordingly, as results differing from these averages are possible on an individual basis.


How Body Contouring Works

Each contouring treatment uses a different mechanism to achieve results:


  1. InBody Body Composition Analyzer: This device uses bioelectrical impedance to precisely measure body composition changes. A non-invasive, quick, and accurate body composition analysis that provides a detailed breakdown of your weight in terms of muscle, fat, and water.
  2. Emsculpt NEO: Combines radiofrequency heating to damage fat cells and high-intensity electromagnetic stimulation to induce extreme muscle contractions.
  3. Kybella: Injections of synthetic deoxycholic acid cause fat cell destruction and metabolism in the submental (under chin) area.
  4. Morpheus8: Microneedling with radiofrequency energy triggers collagen/elastin production to tighten and firm skin.
  5. Sentient Sculpt: 2.45 GHz thermal energy disrupts the fibrous bands in fat responsible for a dimpled cellulite appearance.
  6. Semaglutide: Injections of the medication semaglutide aid in weight loss by regulating appetite.
  7. Lipomino Vitamins: Vitamin injections containing ingredients like L-carnitine and B-complex support fat metabolism.
