What Body Parts Are Treated With Nonsurgical Body Contouring?
At Refresh Life Wellness, many of our patients have loose skin or fat on their bodies that they want to get rid of without surgery. Nonsurgical body contouring is a treatment we use at our Antioch, TN office to target fat and tighten skin that typically does not require downtime. It also can help improve the look of cellulite, which is a concern for many. Nonsurgical body contouring with Accent Prime™ technology uses both radiofrequency and ultrasonic energy to target specific fat cells without harming the tissue around it. If you would like to sculpt your body, board-certified family physician Dr. Kimberly Collins can discuss if you’re a candidate for this nonsurgical treatment option at her Antioch, TN office.
Who is a candidate for nonsurgical body contouring?
The ideal candidate for nonsurgical body contouring at Refresh Life Wellness is someone with pockets of fat, sagging skin, or cellulite. Many of these candidates may have considered liposuction or a body lift, but don’t want the surgery’s downtime. Nonsurgical body contouring can be performed on large areas of the body. During a consultation at our office near Nashville, TN, Dr. Collins can listen to your concerns about your body and discuss your goals to decide if you’re a candidate for nonsurgical body contouring. Ultimately, everybody is different, and the best way to know if you’re a candidate is to have an in-depth discussion to learn about the procedure, the risks, and the costs associated with it.

Dr. Collins can target the following areas during nonsurgical body contouring:
Buttocks (and underneath)
Each treatment will be customized to the needs of the patient and their goals for the finished results. At Refresh Life Wellness, we make sure that our patients fully understand the process before they commit to proceeding further.
How does nonsurgical body contouring work?
Dr. Collins uses the Accent Prime technology and its applicator during nonsurgical body contouring. It uses a thermometer to protect the patient from burns. It is applied to the skin to target fat with ultrasound and radiofrequency waves. This naturally dispels the fat through your lymphatic system. The heat used with this fat elimination procedure will tighten the skin for a firm contour and softens the appearance of cellulite. Nonsurgical body contouring treatment can take anywhere from 30 — 45 minutes for each targeted area. Dr. Collins recommends four to six treatments to attain the best possible results.
Nonsurgical body contouring downtime
Perhaps the most significant advantage of this procedure is that you can go back to your daily life after your procedure. Some patients may experience improvements following body contouring, while others may need more treatments to get to their desired results. Once your body eliminates the fat cells through your lymphatic system, those fat cells won’t return. However, it’s essential to follow a healthy diet to avoid weight gain, which can significantly alter your results.
