Go smooth in 2017 with body contouring procedures and medical-grade skin products designed for smoother, firmer skin. Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics are committed to helping you look and feel your best from head to toe, which is why we focus just as much on body enhancements as skin care treatments. Check out these three ways to create a bikini-ready body just in time for summer.

Body Contouring

Body contouring is all about getting rid of those stubborn areas of fat that won’t respond to your diet and fitness attempts. Even when you reach that magical number on the scale, isolated fat pockets can get in the way of that smooth body profile you were hoping for. We have non-surgical treatments that can trim away that nasty fat, leaving you with that smooth, slim line you were imagining. When you make your body contouring appointment at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we have a couple of good body contouring options for you to choose from.


This device delivers controlled cooling directly into your fat deposits, freezing and destroying fat cells so the body can get rid of them naturally. The treatment works on the principle that fat cells freeze at a warmer temperature than other cells of the body. This allows for full elimination of the fat cells without collateral damage to surrounding skin and tissue. For you, this means a painless procedure without anesthesia or downtime, and dramatic, long-lasting results.

CoolSculpting treatments take about one hour to complete and are relatively comfortable. You can read, watch a video or take a nap during your procedure. Once the procedure is over, you can return to regular activities right away. You will see the treated area slim down gradually in the months following treatment and those results will be permanent as long as you maintain a healthy weight.


SculpSure is another effective body contouring treatment that does not involve anesthesia or incisions. Instead of cooling fat cells to destroy them, this device heats them using targeted laser energy. The treated fat cells are damaged so they can easily be eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. The laser energy does not affect surrounding skin and tissue, which means you can say goodbye to unwanted fat without significant discomfort or downtime.

SculpSure procedures only take about 30 minutes to complete and you can be back to your regular activities the same day or the day after your treatment. The fat cells also tend to be eliminated a bit more quickly with SculpSure, with full results seen in about three months, rather than the six often needed for CoolSculpting. Like CoolSculpting, the results will be permanent as long as you avoid weight gain after your procedure.

Smoothing & Firming Body Lotion

Finish off your body contouring procedure with the latest product in our signature skin care line. Smoothing & Firming Body Lotion is specifically designed to tighten and plump skin to restore your youthful appearance. The difference in this product is the retinol in the mix to reverse the signs of aging in the skin. Unlike glycolic acid that is commonly used in skin smoothing formulations, retinol addresses loss of elasticity and adds preventative elements to protect your skin from further damage.

Make “smooth” your buzzword for 2017 by focusing on those problem spots on the body that can use an extra boost. Body shaping treatments can take 8 to 12 weeks to begin seeing results, and that’s why it’s important for people to come in now to look good by summer. With quick treatments, no downtime and support through products you can use at home, you can make this year your most beautiful one yet!
