The Essential Guide to Body Sculpting

Popular non-invasive body-sculpting treatments have become a staple for getting a trim, sculpted and toned body. You no longer have to live with whatever you don’t like or want to improve about your body. In a few easy visits, the trouble spots that have you pinching and pulling at in the mirror are quickly gone, and sometimes for good.

The great thing about body sculpting treatments is that they’re fast, affordable, and effective. There’s no downtime with them or resulting scars, making them a must-do treatment for women and men of all ages and body types. Whether it’s cellulite, stubborn fat pockets, or even loose skin that has your body looking or feeling disproportionate, there’s an option that works for you. So, no matter if you’ve tried every diet and trendy workout out there but still find it hard to firm and tone your body, it’s time to consider a body sculpting treatment.

Body sculpting treatments and procedures are considered the go-to for non-invasively helping shed stubborn fat and tone and firm the skin. When fat becomes resistant to diet and exercise, a non-invasive body sculpting treatment is often the way to go.

The Technologies

Regarding non-invasive body sculpting treatments, they can employ various technologies depending on the issue. They all work towards eliminating unwanted fat from one area of the body or toning the skin and muscles. The technologies available run the gamut and include:

  • Fat blasters use a variety of cold, heat, radiofrequency (RF), ultrasound, and even injections to kill fat cells and naturally flush them out of the body.
  • Fat freezers employ cooling temperatures to freeze and then crystalize fat cells, which are also naturally moved out of the body.
  • Fat melters rely on light and lasers to heat fat cells and kill them.
  • Muscle builders utilize specialized energy to create muscle contractions to tone them.
  • RF microneedling to create smoother, firmer skin.

Some of the most effective body sculpting treatments include Morpheus8 Body and Physiq Body Sculpting, both of which work differently yet are both effective.


Part of the reason the skin needs to be considered with body sculpting treatments is that removing fat can often cause loose skin. Fat creates a cushion and support of sorts to make the skin look full and firm, but it tends to become saggy without that fat. But that’s not the only reason to consider Morpheus8 Body. This non-surgical RF microneedling treatment can also target stubborn pockets of fat on the stomach, arms, thighs, bra roll, above the knees, flanks, or butt while tightening sagging skin in these areas. So consider it the ultimate one-two punch for a brand new you and the body you’ve always wanted.

Morpheus8 is safe and effective and is a full-body subdermal adipose remodeling treatment. It delivers the deepest levels of radiofrequency energy–up to eight millimeters (the first of its kind)–to the body through safe and controlled micro-injuries within the skin. It also uses a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling to melt fat, stimulate collagen, improve cellulite and stretch marks, and tighten the skin. This depth and effectiveness of the energy allow it to penetrate the subdermal tissues for collagen stimulation and tissue contraction. As the body begins to heal from the injury, the skin in the treated area becomes thicker, firmer, and more youthful-looking. Likewise, as new collagen forms and the skin contracts, it becomes tighter and more youthful-looking. In addition, radiofrequency energy heats fat cells to melt them for a slimming and trimming effect. It can also help improve cellulite while melting fat for improved definition and evening out rippled-looking skin.

The Morpheus8 Body handpiece is big enough to treat larger areas, including the stomach, butt, and arms. In addition, the device features a burst mode, which automatically delivers the RF energy at different depths during a single cycle. This allows the treatment to address all three skin levels in millisecond intervals for a shorter treatment time and better uniformity. It also helps decrease the potential for skin injuries and enables full body.

The non-surgical tightening solution is FDA cleared to deliver energy at its precise treatment depth, allowing it to treat deeper than other procedures.

The results from Morpheu8 are not instant and take time to show; it may take three treatments and three months to see the total effect.


PHYSIQ Body Sculpting is another simple treatment that helps reduce fat and define muscle. The Italian-designed device is a cutting-edge, modern-day aesthetic treatment that is safe, fast, and effective. A single non-invasive treatment addresses fat reduction and muscle stimulation to bring you closer to the body of your dreams. Some more popular treatment areas include the glutes, inner and outer thighs, abs, hips and flanks, back, and arms.

Unlike other fat-reducing and muscle-enhancing treatments, PHYSIQ uses a specialized technology known as Sequential Thermal and Electrical Pulse (STEP), which is exclusive to the device. The STEP technology allows heat and muscle stimulation to alternate throughout the treatment to create optimal results. PHYSIQ also uses a combination of deep heat and electrical muscle stimulation to tone the treatment area in 30 minutes. In addition, the downtime-free treatment uses different modalities to treat a variety of areas of the body for noticeable results over time.

The treatment is comfortable thanks to applicators with a cooling feature within them. As a result, there’s no stinging, burning, zapping, freezing, or intense heat feeling during a session of PHYSIQ.

The PHYSIQ machine features four applicators that allow the muscle-building and fat-reducing technology to reach the optimal wavelength for absorption into body fat. Each applicator emits the energy at a 120-degree angle, giving a large coverage area while reaching the underlying tissue. The benefit of the multiple applicators lets multiple locations be treated faster than usual with no downtime or recovery period.

STEP technology, the primary technology used in PHYSIQ treatments, consists of electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and a superluminescent diode matrix (SDM) delivered to the body from a single applicator. Various energy modalities allow for maximum results and minimize treatment time.

You can also take a mix-and-match approach and use PHYSIQ to target specific areas, meaning the treatment is not limited to improving just one site. Many patients like to address several areas when opting for PHYSIQ.
