What is Body Contouring?

Even people who lead a healthy lifestyle can find themselves with specific areas that are difficult to slim and tone. Body contouring can improve these areas by removing fat and increasing muscle. These methods provide the boost you need to reach the sculpted look you’ve worked to achieve. 

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring works in one of two ways. Some types remove targeted areas of fat, while others tone and build muscle mass. At Manhattan Aesthetics, we can use one or both types of body contouring to help you achieve the best results. 

New York City SculpSure

How Does Body Contouring Work?

The following methods of body contouring all provide excellent results. Your provider will recommend one that will help you reach your goals. 


Using laser energy, SculpSure® heats fat cells to disrupt and damage them. The laser does not affect your skin, so you will not need any downtime. You can lose up to 25% fat in the target area over about six weeks. 

TruSculpt® 3D

Radiofrequency energy can penetrate the deeper layers of fat to produce maximum fat removal. TruSculpt® 3D works by using this radiofrequency (RF) energy to break up stubborn areas of fat so the body can remove them. 

TruSculpt® ID

Unlike most other body contouring methods, TruSculpt® ID can be used even if your BMI is 30 or above. It uses radiofrequency energy to damage fat cells, letting even people with high BMI target areas of fat that bother them the most. 

EmSculpt® NEO

EmSculpt® NEO is the first treatment to use High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Field (HIFEM) & Radiofrequency (RF) energy for muscle toning. These sessions yield the same results as 12-16 weeks of HIIT, making EmSculpt® NEO an excellent option for busy people who don’t have as much time as they want to spend in the gym. 


Using magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS), CoolTone™ stimulates muscle contractions to tone and build targeted muscles. This form of energy penetrates deeply into the muscle for more intensive toning and strengthening.

Is There Any Downtime with Body Contouring?

Most body contouring treatments require no downtime. These noninvasive methods do no damage to the skin, so you have no recovery time. You will usually be able to go back to your usual activities after your treatment. The most common effects include mild redness or sensitivity. Muscle toning treatments may result in aching similar to what you would feel after a workout. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?

Some body contouring treatments recommend that people get to within 30 pounds of their target weight. Others can treat people with a higher BMI. Before deciding whether body contouring will work for you, let the experts at Manhattan Aesthetics assess your needs.
