Patients on a journey of cosmetic transformation often ask us, “Which body sculpting method is best?” Our Long Island-based team at VITRA Aesthetics Clinic recommends specific treatments based on the patient, since every person’s needs—and goals—are unique.

That said, almost everyone has at least one part of their body they wish they could change, whether it’s the thighs, the upper arms, or a double chin. As much as we’d like to specifically exercise or diet away that one problem area keeping us from having the look we want, there’s unfortunately no guarantee that our body shape and type will be exactly the way we want it to be—even after reducing overall body weight. For example, you may want a balanced, hourglass shape but be unable to lose stubborn fat on the stomach or thighs. It can seem like fat refuses to leave from “problem areas” regardless of how strict of a diet we follow or how much time we spend working out.

The reason why it’s often tricky to reduce fat from specific areas is because factors we have little control over—including genetics and hormones—influence how we store fat on our bodies. For example, men and women are essentially programmed to store fat differently. On some men, fat tends to collect in the abdominal area, while some women tend to store more fat on the lower body.

Happily, there’s a way to restore a more balanced, firmer body shape. EvolveX by InMode is a new, non-surgical body contouring device that can transform the appearance of the body by lifting and remodeling skin, reducing fat, and toning muscles. Also, as we age, sagging can occur on the lower face, and the contours of the face may change. Evoke is a facial rejuvenation platform from InMode that adds definition to the cheeks, neck, and jawline to reshape the face by delivering bipolar radiofrequency energy to the subdermal area.

This works well for many people, since problem areas many not only be caused by excess fat that lingers, but also loose, stretched-out skin and/or poor muscle tone.

EvolveX Body Reshaping is ideal for patients who want to reduce excess fat, tighten loose skin, and build muscle to sculpt their ideal body shape, while Evoke Facial Reshaping is best for patients who want to improve their facial contours. CoolSculpting® is a fat-freezing option for patients who want to focus on slimming down isolated areas where loose skin is not a concern.
