Get The Shape You’ve Been Waiting For – Body Sculpting Columbia SC

Diet and exercise are life changing – but they can only go so far. Sometimes stubborn fat deposits or cellulite simply refuse to go away and make the dream figure you’ve worked so hard to achieve unattainable. However, with body sculpting your ideal body is just a few treatments away!

Ready to eliminate that last bit of unwanted fat or say goodbye to cellulite? When you get your body sculpting treatments at our dynamic, high-energy medical spa you’ll leave looking and feeling like a Rockstar!

What Is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting refers to a variety of treatments aimed at contouring and refining your body’s shape by targeting and reducing stubborn fat and cellulite. Here’s an overview of four popular and effective methods: TruSculpt, traditional liposuction, cellulite subcision, and BeautiFill fat transfer.
TruSculpt: This non-invasive procedure uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat and destroy fat cells beneath the skin. Over time, the body naturally eliminates these cells, leading to a slimmer and more contoured appearance. TruSculpt removes up to 25% of the fat cells in the treated areas with just a surface level treatment, making it an excellent choice for those looking to reduce fat without surgery. This procedure usually requires multiple sessions spaced out over a few months to achieve best results.
Traditional Liposuction: Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure where a thin tube, called a cannula, is inserted through small incisions to suction out fat from specific areas of the body. This method provides immediate and dramatic results, and can help restore confidence after a weightloss journey.
Cellulite Subcision: This treatment focuses on reducing the appearance of cellulite by breaking up the fibrous bands beneath the skin that cause the infamous dimpled texture. Using a needle-sized device, the bands are released, allowing the skin to smooth out and creating a more even, youthful looking surface.
BeautiFill (Liposuction + Fat Transfer): For anyone who has ever lamented that they want to take fat from one part of their body and move it to another – this is your answer. After removing fat from one area via liposuction, it is filtered, stored, and then reinjected where desired. The results are a cross between liposuction and fillers – except the fillers are 100% natural!

The Benefits of Body Sculpting

Body sculpting is perfect for getting the final few percent of benefit out of a weight loss and exercise regime. There’s no need to live with a double chin or cellulite – your natural beauty is achievable!

Before & After

Who is a Candidate for Body Sculpting

Body sculpting is an excellent option for individuals who are close to their ideal weight but struggle with stubborn fat deposits or cellulite that isn’t responding to diet and exercise. You are an ideal candidate for body sculpting if you are:

  • A Healthy Adult: Body sculpting candidates should be in good overall health without serious medical conditions that could impair healing.
  • At a Stable Weight: Individuals who have maintained a stable weight for at least six months and are committed to continuing a healthy lifestyle.
  • Seeking Targeted Fat Reduction: Those looking to address specific areas of fat or cellulite, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, love handles, or under the chin.
  • Have Realistic Expectations: You should understand that body sculpting is not a weight loss solution but a way to contour and enhance your natural body shape.
  • Be a Non-Smoker: Smoking can impair healing and affect the results of body contouring procedures. Non-smokers get better results from these treatments.

It’s important to approach body sculpting with realistic expectations and a positive mindset. Our compassionate team is here to support you throughout your journey, ensuring you understand the process and feel confident in your decision. We’re dedicated to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals and feel great in your own skin.

Our Body Sculpting Treatments

Prior to any body sculpting treatment it is essential to have a consultation with your esthetician. During this visit you will have a chance to discuss your goals and learn more about your treatment options.

TruSculpt Radio Frequency Body Fat Reduction

This non-invasive treatment method uses powerful RF signals to cause treated fat cells to die over time. This method has been clinically shown to produce up to a 25% fat reduction in the treatment area with only minimal discomfort.

Liposuction

This minimally-invasive procedure physically removes fat from trouble spots via a small incision. At Vivid we use a laser-assisted liposuction technique which is gentle enough to not require general anesthesia. This means that our clients get better results with a faster recovery time.

BeautiFill (Liposuction + Fat Transfer)

The ultimate in body shaping. The BeautiFill fat transfer system is an FDA-cleared device which lets you eliminate unwanted fat deposits while gently plumping and filling areas of your choosing. Just like our liposuction procedure this minimally invasive treatment is gentle and performed without general anesthesia.

Avéli Cellulite Treatment – Cellulite Subcision

The Avéli Cellulite Treatment is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment which gently severs the fibrous bands which cause unsightly cellulite.

This procedure does not require general anesthesia and produces long-lasting results.

Recommended Add-ons

Optimize your body contouring procedure with one of these add-on treatments:

  • IV Drip Therapy: 500 mL of saline ensures you are well hydrated, helps your body flush out the dead fat cells, and speeds your recovery time.
  • Lipo-Mino Injection: Rev your metabolism and burn fat with the ‘skinny shot.’ This injection includes 4 B Vitamins (including full dose of B12, B1, B2, B6) and MIC (methionine, inositol and choline).

Rockstar Results Are Waiting For You

What is the difference between body contouring and body sculpting?

These two names both refer to the same procedure. Body contouring and body sculpting refers to the changing the shape of an area on your body. This type of procedure works by removing fat from an area via a variety of methods.

Where does the fat go after body contouring?

The answer to this depends on your body contouring treatment. In the case of TruSculpt RF your body will naturally excrete the dead fat cells via the lymphatic system. We recommend that you take care to stay hydrated after your treatment to ensure that your body can properly excrete the dead cells.

For liposuction, the fat cells are physically removed, providing much more rapid results.

How long does body sculpting last?

Body sculpting works by physically removing fat cells and thus the results can technically last indefinitely. If you do not gain significant amounts of weight, you can expect the results to last a very long time!

How long does liposuction + fat transfer last?

In general, facials begin with a cleansing treatment and then are followed up by exfoliation, massage, serum application, and then optional add-on treatments like LED light therapy or high-frequency treatments. All of our facials can be customized to meet your skin’s unique needs and your personal goals.

Can I lose weight by body sculpting?

No, body sculpting does not remove significant amounts of body fat and is not a weight loss method. It is ideal for removing stubborn pockets of fat which have resisted previous weight loss efforts.

What is your cancellation/no show policy?

We understand that situations may arise which may force you to cancel or postpone a treatment and are happy to make changes or cancellations as long as we receive notice at least 24 hours in advance.

In the event that you are unable to provide 24 hours notice of your change or fail to keep your appointment, then your credit card may be charged $100 for the visit.
