It’s no secret that society can push you on a constant journey to perfect your body through various healthy diets and lifestyles. Sometimes, you may need to make an extra effort to reach your goal when diet and exercise fail to yield the results you are after. It may be worth considering going the extra mile and adding the right body-sculpting procedure to your routine.

At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we have various body-sculpting options that can help land you closer to your ideal body image. Choosing the treatment that is most customizable to you is crucial. We’ll guide you through the different options below!

Why Go for Body Sculpting?

Until now, you’ve probably gone through diets and gym routines to get rid of those extra pounds. However, in some cases, certain areas can be so stubborn that even dieting cannot fix the problem. This brings you to the next best thing—body sculpting.

One thing to keep in mind is that body sculpting does not necessarily mean weight loss. Your weight may be within normal parameters, but you may still have fat pockets on your body that refuse to budge. This may include areas such as stubborn stomach fat, arm fat, or a double chin. Love handles are also more difficult to address with dieting and exercising alone, which is why people opt for body-sculpting procedures.

Other people use body sculpting so that they can reach a certain shape or feel thinner. Body-sculpting treatments are often used together with skin-tightening techniques to get a more youthful and better-sculpted look overall.

Top Body-Sculpting Options for Your Ideal Body

At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care, we offer various body-sculpting treatments, including the following:

  • CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is a technology that uses controlled freezing in order to kill the fat cells in your body. The procedure requires no surgery or downtime because once the fat cells are frozen, your lymphatic system will work to naturally eliminate them. The process is safe and with fewer side effects compared to other new treatments such as Ozempic.

Once the fat cells are destroyed and removed, they have no ability to return, and even if you gain weight after this procedure, the weight can be evenly distributed throughout your body.

Since CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical treatment, there will be no scars or significant downtime. In fact, after the procedure, you should be able to go on with your day, without having to take the day off from work.

  • Laser Lipo

Traditional liposuction has always been one of the most popular ways to eliminate excess fat, but it is still a highly invasive type of surgery. Downtime is required, and since incisions are made, there is a risk of scarring. The sudden absence of fat may also increase pain and healing time, prolonging the discomfort.

Unlike regular lipo, laser lipo can help you contour your body without the need for downtime. Low-level laser has proven to be effective at breaking down fat cells, which is why it is frequently used in body-contouring procedures. The procedure is safe and minimally invasive, and since the fat will exit your body through natural means, it will look as if you lost weight by using traditional methods.


Chin fat is a problem for many women, whether they are also struggling with excess body weight or not. And when stubborn chin fat refuses to go away, techniques such as KYBELLA® can be very effective at eliminating it.

With a base of deoxycholic acid, KYBELLA® injections can “melt” the fat from within to gradually destroy the fat underneath your skin. Over time, your immune system will expel it naturally, leaving you with a more sculpted look. The good news is that KYBELLA® can be an effective method to reduce chin fat by permanently removing the treated fat cells.

The Bottom Line

The body-sculpting procedures offered by Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics can help you eliminate excess fat in stubborn areas of your body. Used together with skin tightening and other body-shaping technologies, body sculpting can help you obtain that body you have always dreamed of.
