We’re fortunate to live in a time when technology like body contouring is readily available. Body contouring is non-invasive, non-surgical, and not painful at all. These body shaping treatments are for people who are looking for a non-surgical fat reduction in targeted areas, to carve out muscles for a toned appearance, or reduce stubborn body fat.
What is Body Contouring?
So, what is body contouring? And what can body contouring do for your aesthetic goals? If you’ve ever wished you could shape and mold your body like a piece of artist’s clay, then you’ve imagined body contouring. This is the noninvasive rejuvenation procedure that will help you tackle that stubborn belly fat, help you chisel into your problem areas, or smooth out stretch marks, creating lifted, more toned hips, buttocks, and bellies. Body contouring makes use of new technology to carve your problem areas into shape, helping you achieve your body goals. It is, in no uncertain terms, non-surgical fat loss and muscle building.
At Refine Aesthetics med spa in Austin, we use the innovative EmsculptNEO and Morpheus8 technology at the forefront of body contouring to cinch waistlines, create more prominent muscles and smooth out stretch marks. These body contouring treatments can help new moms fight stretch marks and loosened muscles, men and women who want more defined muscles, or those who just want to reduce the visible fat in their waistline. You will look and even feel younger after these non-invasive body contouring rejuvenation treatments.
Leaders in the Field
EmsculptNEO is a revolutionary new body contouring treatment that uses HIFEM - high intensity electromagnetic energy and radiofrequency energy to trigger 20,000 muscle contractions in half an hour. This zaps fat and tones your muscles, quickly carving out the look you want without invasive surgeries and with zero downtime. This rejuvenation technology has been approved for the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, calves, biceps, and triceps.
Morpheus8 combines micro needling and radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen production; thereby tackling stretch marks, skin texture, and skin laxity. The results are firmer, more shapely curves, rejuvenation, and youthful glowing skin. Approved for use on the entire body, this technology gets down into the details to tighten the skin, delivering a rejuvenated look without invasive surgery.
Non-Invasive Body Contouring with Zero Down Time
In the past, seeking out cosmetic body contouring treatments to achieve rejuvenation, reduce fat and increase muscle always meant going under the knife. Recovery was long and painful and often meant weeks off work and being stuck in bed. In today’s world, we’re lucky to have access to rejuvenation technology because it means you’re in and out without anesthetic, pain, or the need to recover.
It’s true, body contouring procedures require minimal downtime afterward, produce no pain, and may only require topical numbing agents. That means it’s less work than constant dieting or extreme exercise and produces similar rejuvenation results. Best of all, there is no need for invasive and painful liposuction. There are no incisions or stitches, no scars to heal, and no pain medications. You’re in and out on the same day and ready to get right back to life.

Common Questions About Body Contouring
How Much Does Body Contouring Cost?
The price of body contouring is going to vary depending on the area of the body you’ll be treating and what problems you’re wanting to treat. EmsculptNeo treatment can cost from between $3400 to $5,000 per area. If you’re more interested in the Morpheus8 body contouring treatments, they can range from $1,200 to $4,500 and also depend on what areas you’re looking to contour and what our goals are from your current starting point.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number and frequency of treatment sessions for any type of body contouring will be different for each patient and area of the body that you’re treating. Generally speaking, though, for EmsculptNEO body contouring treatments, patients will get the best results from 4-30 minute sessions which will be planned to fall 5-10 days apart. Morpheus8 body contouring treatment can be done in one session but for optimal results, we recommend completing a series of three Morpheus8 treatments around 4-6 weeks apart.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Each patient is going to have a different experience when it comes to noticing results. On average, however, body contouring results from EmsculptNEO can be visible right away after each procedure with the full results becoming apparent after approximately four to 8 weeks. If you’ve had a Morpheus8 treatment, you can expect that time to be shorter, with visible results occurring right away and seeing the full results after about 3 weeks for initial improvement and continued improvement over the next 3-6 months.
Is Body Contouring Painful?
Body contouring with EmsculptNEO is not painful at all to minimally uncomfortable. There is no need for healing or medications and no downtime afterwards. The procedure lasts for 30 minutes and though there may be a weird pulling/contraction feeling, there will be no pain. Morpheus8 does produce milder to moderate discomfort with more downtime of redness and swelling. A topical numbing agent is usually applied an hour prior to the procedure.
How Long Does Body Contouring Last?
When you’ve completed your EmsculptNEO body contouring procedures, the results can last from three to six months. You’ll find that your body contouring results will last longer with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Fat destruction using EmsculptNeo is permanent however maintenance is recommended to maintain muscle density- this can be monthly to quarterly. Morpheus8 contouring treatments can create permanent lasting results for your skin with annual maintenance treatments. Without Morpheus8 maintenance procedures, the results of your contouring can last up to one year.
Who is a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
The perfect candidate for EmsculptNEO will have a Body Mass Index of less than 35. You are not an eligible candidate if you’re pregnant or have metal hardware in the body close to the treatment area, for example a metal IUD, or anything with electrical conduction like a pacemaker. You’ll also want to avoid this treatment if the area you’re looking to have the procedure on has had a hernia. Morpheus8 is a great option for just about anybody, with the exception of those who are pregnant or have an active infection in the area to be treated.
Body contouring can help increase muscle mass and destroy fat without a diet, carving out the body shapes and curves you desire. With these treatments, you’ll experience minimal to no pain and downtime after your procedures, which means these transformative services won’t take you out of the game at all. Emerge from a non-surgical body contouring procedure with immediately visible results that continue to unfold for weeks to come.
