What Is Body Contouring? A Comprehensive Guide by Med Spa Experts in Rogers, AR

Non-surgical body sculpting has become one of the best ways to tighten skin and reduce fat in stubborn areas of the body. Both men and women can struggle with these issues, and body contouring without surgery is a lot more approachable for most people. 

Maybe lower belly fat makes you self conscious in your swimsuit, or you have unwanted fat in areas that are difficult to reduce with exercise. Many of us have certain areas of our bodies that make us self conscious, and sometimes we just need something that’ll help boost our confidence! This is when a body contouring treatment can help you look good and feel good 😊

The specialists at Renew Aesthetics are here to help you understand what body contouring is. We offer all types of body contouring procedures for our patients, and pride ourselves on giving personalized care to everyone. 

Below we discuss the basics of body contouring, and how it can help you achieve the results you’re looking for.

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is any non-surgical procedure that uses technology to refine an area of your body through fat loss, cellulite reduction, and/or skin tightening. 

There are a few types of body contouring treatments, and which one you choose depends on your desired results. A body contour specialist can help you determine the best treatment for you with a consultation. Body contouring procedures are not significant weight loss solutions; they are treatments that help you target specific areas to contour and refine. 


Does body contouring work? 

Yes, body contouring works! We wouldn’t offer any procedures that don’t 😊  Body contouring procedures work through a variety of techniques, which we’ll discuss later in more detail. Each body contouring treatment aims for specific goals, so you should choose the procedure that best fits your needs for optimal results.

What does body sculpting do?

Body sculpting (a term used interchangeably with body contouring) uses targeted technology to treat areas of concern on the body. Patients may get body contouring on the abdomen, flanks, arms, and other areas difficult to target through exercise alone. Body sculpting can help reduce fat and tighten skin in the treatment area! 

Body contouring after weight loss or for aging skin 

After significant weight loss, many people experience skin laxity (loose skin). This can prevent an area from looking refined and toned, which may discourage you from showing off your new awesome figure! We treat many patients looking to tighten loose skin in areas after weight loss and skin laxity from aging. We offer multiple body contouring procedures to tighten loose skin on men and women. Below is information on each of our skin tightening treatments at Renew.

Exilis Ultra

A popular non-invasive and painless treatment for loose skin is Exilis Ultra, a laser skin tightening treatment that stimulates collagen production. Exilis reduces the appearance of cellulite, sagging skin, and wrinkles with advanced radiofrequency dual-energy systems. These systems use controlled thermal heat to stimulate reconstruction and formation of skin tissue. This leads to visibly tightened skin and contoured results!

We provide Exilis Ultra near you in the following treatment areas:

    • Thighs
    • Arms
    • Knees
    • Neck
    • Jawline
    • Love handles
    • Abdomen
    • Forehead

Legend Pro™

Legend Pro is a non-invasive and painless skin tightening treatment that encourages natural skin healing and regeneration by forming microchannels to jumpstart the process. It uses thermal skin regeneration technology to treat skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. 

Legend Pro resurfaces the outer layers of the skin and promotes collagen and elastin fiber production in the deeper (dermis) skin layers. This clinically proven technology helps to tighten and rejuvenate loose skin for these two treatment areas.

A new treatment at Renew, FaceTite, is a minimally invasive facial contouring procedure administered by a physician (our own Dr. Kevin Haney 😊) to treat facial skin laxity. FaceTite is a great non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift. 

This procedure uses a controlled radiofrequency thermal field to deliver fat coagulation and remodel facial tissue to contour the face and tighten the skin. Physicians work in the sub-dermal area to deliver fat reduction and skin contraction. The FaceTite procedure treats facial contouring, skin laxity, and small areas of the body.


Another new addition to our body contouring procedures is BodyTite, a minimally invasive body contouring procedure. Like Skintite, this treatment is also administered by a physician. BodyTite uses radiofrequency in the same manner as Skintite, by remodeling tissue and causing lipolysis (fat reduction). It results in body contouring and skin tightening through contraction of the skin, as well as fat loss.

BodyTite can treat:

    • Male gynecomastia
    • Abdominal fat
    • Other body zones

Other body contouring procedures

Besides skin laxity, many patients choose body contouring treatments that are specifically made to target fat reduction. Below is an introduction to each of our body contouring treatments for fat loss at Renew.  


Emsculpt® is the first device to build muscle while sculpting the treatment area. It uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to trigger thousands of supramaximal muscle contractions, improving muscle tone and strength. The amount of muscle contractions produced with Emsculpt® is an impossible task through voluntary exercise. 

These contractions lead to deep remodeling of muscle tissue to sculpt your body, with an average of 16% increase in muscle mass! You’ll feel stronger after treatment, which will make your workouts even better, and it can improve your balance and help back pain. 

Emsculpt® is FDA-cleared to treat:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Thighs 
  • Arms 

Emsculpt Neo®

Emsculpt Neo® is the first and only non-invasive body contouring procedure that delivers both muscle strength and fat reduction. It uses the same high-intensity electromagnetic energy as Emsculpt®, but pairs it with radiofrequency designed to burn fat. You’ll feel slimmer and stronger with this treatment. Emsculpt Neo® can also treat patients with a BMI up to 35, so it’s available to a wider audience. Emsculpt Neo® patients on average build 25% more muscle and lose 30% of fat in treatment areas. 

Emsculpt Neo® is FDA cleared to treat following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Thighs
  • Arms


Emtone™ is the first and only body contouring device that treats all major contributors of cellulite with thermal and mechanical technology. It uses a combination of radiofrequency and targeted pressure energy to treat cellulite. Neither of these techniques work on their own to achieve this, so this combination is very advanced! 

Emtone™ increases collagen and elastin to reduce cellulite. This results in smoother skin to give you the confidence to wear those shorts again! Emtone™ has a 90% patient satisfaction rating, so you can rest easy that you’ll love your results.


Vanquish is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses a high-frequency energy field to target and destroy unwanted fat cells. It works by selective thermal heating of the treatment area to deliver fat reduction. Vanquish is painless, and, unlike other treatments, the device panel targets large sections of fat rather than small ones. 

Bonus 🙌 Though its main purpose is to reduce fat, Vanquish also has a skin tightening effect.

Vanquish treats:

  • Love handles
  • Muffin top
  • Bulging waistlines

Is body contouring permanent?

Yes, results from body contouring are permanent with proper maintenance. A healthy lifestyle, exercise routine, and skincare maintenance can help guarantee the longevity of your results. Some patients elect to have top up maintenance procedures to help them enhance their results even further. 

Am I a good candidate for non-surgical body contouring?

Most of our candidates for body contouring fall into these categories:

  • You’re looking for body contouring after weight loss to treat loose skin.
  • You want to treat the natural effects of aging on the skin.
  • You’ve been working hard in the gym and need that extra boost to achieve your body goals.

Don’t fall in any of these categories? That’s totally fine! 

You can discuss your goals for your skin and body with a Renew professional during a free consultation. During this, you’ll speak with a body contour specialist to discuss your areas of concern, questions about treatments, and whatever else makes you feel informed and comfortable to make a decision.
