Body Contouring in Encino
Searching for body contouring in Encino? Body shaping is a proven method that we use to shape and tone the body.
About Body Contouring
A slim and well-toned body is hard to achieve, even with the strictest diets and exercise programs. This is because as you get older, your body starts to produce less collagen and stores more fat, creating an unevenly shaped or toned body.
SILK Medical Spa understands that while everyone wants to look and feel their best, not everyone desires surgery. We are pleased to offer non-surgical body contouring and shaping with Venus Versa, which uses radiofrequency technology to boost collagen production and break down fat cells, leading to slimmer, firmer skin and a sculpted body figure.
Are You a Candidate?
Ideal candidates for body contouring with Venus Versa are men and women who have pockets of fat or cellulite that are resistant to diet and exercise, or loose skin that has begun to lose its elasticity. In addition, Venus Versa is a great option for you if you wish to sculpt your body without surgery or cannot dedicate much time for recovery. Our expertly trained and skilled nurses can go over the specifics of the procedure and determine whether you are an appropriate candidate during a personal consultation.
Treatment with Venus Versa can be completed in about 30 minutes or less, depending on the treatment size. To start, a member of our team will place a handpiece over the treatment area. The device will emit a combination of multi-polar radiofrequency and electromagnetic pulses to heat the tissues underneath the skin. The process naturally increases the body’s production of collagen for firmer skin and shrinks the volume of fat cells for a slimmer physique. The appearance of cellulite is also improved in the process.
Treatment is not painful; most patients feel a slight warming sensation that is well-tolerated. There is no downtime with Venus Versa. You can return to work or resume other normal activities immediately after your treatment. The treatment area may look slightly red afterwards but this should only last for a few hours.
Although you will notice an improvement soon after your treatment, the final results will not become visible until a few months after, once the body has produced more collagen and naturally eliminated the fat cells from the body. In addition, most patients need several sessions (typically six to eight, spaced several weeks apart) to achieve the optimal result. Our team will recommend the number for sessions for you.
Collagen Induction Therapy or Microneedling
Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is another non-invasive skin tightening option we offer at SILK. Treatment involves using tiny needles on a hand-held device that is gently rubbed over the skin. The needles create tiny puncture wounds on the skin, triggering the body to heal itself by creating more collagen. The production of collagen creates firmer and youthful-looking skin. Collagen induction therapy can be used to improve skin laxity on the face and neck. Results are gradual and improve over the course of several months. Repeat sessions are generally recommended to achieve the most desirable results.
Often times, anti-aging serum or platelet rich plasma (PRP) is applied to the area of treatment. The small skin openings allow for penetration of the serum or PRP, inducing further collagen formation and further enhancing the results.
