Body Sculpting in Santa Rosa: Trim Stubborn Fat Without Incisions!

Education / December 9, 2021

Non-surgical body sculpting in Santa Rosa is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after medical spa services. At Allegro Medspa of Santa Rosa, California’s premier med spa, we offer several non-invasive body sculpting treatments. 

As a provider with plenty to choose from, our patients trust that they are getting the perfect treatment for their needs, rather than having to settle for whatever we happen to have. Get the results you’ve been dreaming of with body sculpting!

Treatments for nonsurgical body sculpting in Santa Rosa

Each of our body sculpting services works differently. At your consultation, we go over your problem areas and desired results. This information helps us determine the best approach to your body sculpting treatment. Generally we recommend from the following:

  • CoolSculpting
  • Emsculpt NEO
  • QWO

Let’s discover what makes these services for body sculpting in Northern California unique. 

Chill the fat out with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting in Northern California is an innovation to noninvasive body sculpting that can help you look and feel your best. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary fat-diminishing treatment designed to sculpt and mold your body by freezing away tough fat cells. The technique uses regulated cooling (cryolipolysis) to freeze fat cells so they may be naturally expelled from your body to reveal the body you’ve dreamt of.

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting

While this noninvasive technique has proven successful with individuals of different ages, those who will benefit the most from CoolSculpting:

  • Are within 30 pounds of their goal weight
  • Struggle with stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to exercise and diet efforts
  • Don’t want or are not suitable candidates for more invasive procedures
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment

What to expect from CoolSculpting

After your consultation to organize your CoolSculpting treatments in Northern California, we’ll plan your procedure. 

During the procedure, we apply a gel pad and the CoolSculpting handpiece to the predetermined area to begin controlled cooling. The cooling power delivered by the applicator begins to attack and paralyze the fat cells. You will likely feel coolness at the time of your treatment, but this rarely causes great discomfort. The CoolSculpting applicator uses suction to pull the targeted fat cells into the predetermined treatment area, so you should prepare to feel a small amount of tugging or pinching, but it isn’t painful.

CoolSculpting works by applying a controlled temperature to destroy fat cells in selected body parts for treatment. Essentially, it freezes the fat cells until they die. The cells are then broken down by the body and disposed of through natural functions. Your body will NOT create new fat cells to replace the dead ones, but the remaining fat cells can get larger if you gain weight. 

Since CoolSculpting treatments are noninvasive, patients return to normal activities following treatment. In as little as three weeks, you start to notice your results. The most dramatic and obvious results are seen one to three months after your treatment.

How many CoolSculpting treatments are needed?

We will discuss the number of treatments during your initial consultation. For some patients, only one treatment is enough, but other patients may need more treatment sessions, depending on the amount of fat they want addressed. The number of treatments is dependent on your aesthetic goals and if there are thicker layers of fat in target sections.

Are there side effects from CoolSculpting?

Side effects of CoolSculpting usually include bruising, swelling, stinging, redness, and discomfort of the treated site. These side effects are temporary and should subside in the days following your procedure.

Sculpt and burn with Emsculpt Neo

Emsculpt Neo is the most advanced body contouring procedure available in Santa Rosa, combining both muscle building and fat reduction in one treatment. This is the first body sculpting procedure that uses radiofrequency for fat reduction, and high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) to tone and strengthen muscles during one session.

Our aesthetic experts use the Emsculpt Neo to treat the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and calves to reveal tighter muscles and slimmer contours!

Ideal candidates for Emsculpt Neo

The ideal candidate for Emsculpt Neo is anyone ready to jump-start their healthy lifestyle with motivation like no other! The unique blend of technologies used by Emsculpt Neo allows us to use it on patients up to a BMI of 35. With that said, we always recommend our Emsculpt Neo patients use the treatment in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, as those who are at or near their target body weight will see the best results. Emsculpt Neo is not a weight loss procedure.

What to expect from Emsculpt Neo

Procedure time for Emsculpt Neo can be as little as 30 minutes of actual treatment, but the total time you spend in the office varies based on your individual needs and how many areas you’re having treated. Most sessions can be completed entirely within one to two hours. Because the treatment is non-invasive, you can schedule it conveniently during your lunch hour and resume your normal activities immediately. Most patients see the best results after a series of four or so treatments; each scheduled a week or two apart.

Results will vary slightly from patient to patient, but we often see the best results three months following the final treatment in your Emsculpt Neo series.

Emsculpt Neo in Northern California works by simultaneously emitting radiofrequency (RF) and HIFEM® energies. In minutes, the RF energy heats subcutaneous fat to levels where the cells are damaged and flushed from the body. This results in a PERMANENT reduction in your number of fat cells.

The HIFEM® energy contracts muscle fibers at intensities you cannot achieve during a workout. The extreme stress force applied to the muscle forces it to adapt by increasing the number and growth factor of muscle fibers and cells. This means you get stronger, more defined muscles!

How much does Emsculpt Neo cost?

The cost of your treatment with Emsculpt Neo is determined based on the number of sessions you will require to achieve your goals, as well as the number and size of areas you would like to treat. The team at Allegro MedSpa is here to come up with a custom body contouring treatment plan tailored to you!

Feel like “whoa” with QWO

And now, for something completely different. Unlike our other options for body sculpting in Santa Rosa, QWO (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) is an injectable treatment for cellulite in adult women. It is a prescription medicine and FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks.

Our practice was one of the first in the nation to be able to offer QWO injections for cellulite.   The injection targets the fibrous septae, which are the primary structural cause of cellulite.

Ideal candidates for QWO

Candidates for QWO are adult women who are not allergic to collagenase or any ingredients of QWO and do not have an active infection in the treatment area. Our physicians hold thorough consultations to determine whether QWO is an effective option for patients before administering any treatment. 

What to expect from QWO

We inject QWO into the subcutaneous fat of each buttock (treatment areas). You may receive up to 12 injections per treatment area in each treatment. We administer injections of QWO 21 days apart for a total of three separate treatments, each of which only takes about 15 minutes.

The most common side effects of QWO include bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling, and warmth in the treatment area. Visible results tend to be achieved in 10 weeks.

The enzymes that make up QWO are thought to target structural causes of cellulite beneath the skin. Those structural causes are: fibrous bands beneath the skin becoming thicker, skin becoming thinner, and fat cells becoming larger. Those three things are a recipe for dimples. 

QWO releases the thickened fibrous bands, redistributes fat cells, and stimulates collagen growth.
