What is Nonsurgical body contouring?
When we are young, we get to benefit from an abundant reserve of natural proteins that keeps our skin soft and healthy. As we age, this foundational storage of collagen and elastin will start to decrease, making the skin lose firmness, which causes fine lines and an older appearance. If you want to boost the tautness of your skin without cosmetic surgery, then nonsurgical body contouring with Morpheus8™ by InMode is an excellent option. By employing state-of-the-art technology that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling, nonsurgical body contouring works to encourage the natural generation of elastin and collagen so it's possible to develop tighter, smoother skin. Medical director Dr. Kenneth D. Farr is thrilled to offer nonsurgical body contouring (also known as skin tightening) for people who wish to rejuvenate and firm their skin with effective, minimally invasive alternatives.

How does Nonsurgical body contouring work?
Nonsurgical body contouring with Morpheus8 is an outpatient treatment that is performed on-site at VIP Cosmetic Surgery. Morpheus8 can be used on almost anywhere on the body, including the thighs, abdomen, arms, chest, neck, and face. Treatments usually take about 30 – 90 minutes to complete, depending on the number of areas being treated. To start, the skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied. Then, the Morpheus8 device will be used to deliver RF microneedling. As soon as the appointment is finished, you'll be free to resume your regular activities.
You may experience mild redness, swelling, and discomfort, but this is normal and usually resolves within a few days. Since the production of collagen and elastin is gradual, you can expect to see your best results within the next few months. Outcomes from nonsurgical body contouring usually last for many years.
What Should I Expect After Nonsurgical Body Contouring?
There is usually no needed recovery time after nonsurgical body contouring, and the majority of people have no or minimal side effects. You may expect to have discoloration, inflammation, and bruising around the treated sites, but these effects should go away within a day or two. Based on your specific body shape and the area being treated, you might observe significant improvements immediately. Typically, most individuals will feel a significant reduction in the circumference of their targeted region over a range of 3 – 6 months. After the body gets rid of the fat tissue, it will not return. However, it's crucial to keep a healthy weight, as significant weight increases can affect your results.
