All about nonsurgical body contouring

Nonsurgical body contouring is carried out at the office of Sereno Santé in San Jose, CA. Dr. Chakerian will evaluate your particular needs to determine which of the two lasers she will use for nonsurgical body contouring. She will then discuss the treatment plan with you and explain how the laser can reshape your fat deposits. You can treat your chin, neck, face, buttocks, upper arms, bra area, thighs, stomach, and hips with nonsurgical body contouring.

What lasers are used at Sereno Santé in San Jose, CA?

The truScuplt® Flex laser is used to shape, tone, and better define muscles. The nonsurgical body contouring procedure using this laser choice takes only 15 minutes to complete. The laser effectively covers a larger area in a noticeably brief timespan. The laser can be further customized to better meet your goals.

The Alma Accent Prime™ uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound energy to create heat under the surface of the skin, which quickly breaks down and destroys fat cells to tighten the skin. This laser choice works well for exceedingly small and precise body regions, such as the neck, face, or chin. In addition to removing unwanted fat pockets, the laser also effectively stimulates collagen beneath the skin’s surface to help smooth skin and create improved texture.

The benefits of body contouring using either laser choice include:

  • Reduces and removes unwanted fat in problem areas
  • Rejuvenates and refreshes skin
  • Tighten sagging areas
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Effectively reshapes the body
  • Leaves behind no scarring
  • Quick and easy
  • Virtually painless
  • Effective for any skin type
  • Long-lasting results

If you have been struggling with stubborn fat areas, body contouring might be the perfect choice to tighten your skin and get rid of unwanted fat layers. The entire body contouring procedure is performed by Dr. Chakerian in a treatment room at the office of Sereno Santé in San Jose, CA.

During the treatment, you might feel slight warming, but the body contouring procedure is considered painless. You do not need any general or local anesthesia. Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities.

It will take several weeks or months before you start to notice a difference in your body, but within 12 weeks, patients usually start seeing their shape alter and the results continue developing over the next few months.
