Skin tightening vs body contouring

We all have stubborn areas of fat that won’t seem to budge no matter how hard we exercise or how well we eat. Thankfully, we now have a range of non-invasive treatments to help eliminate stubborn fat for good.

These treatments tend to fall into two key categories – skin tightening and body contouring. To help you determine which one is right for you, here’s a quick breakdown of the two treatments:

Skin Tightening

Our skin tightening treatments, including Thermage® and Ultraformer III, are an excellent way to tighten and improve skin texture and tone. Thermage® is a radiofrequency treatment that transforms the skin below the surface. It stimulates collagen and the body’s natural renewal method to tighten the skin and slow the ageing process. Immediately after the treatment, your skin is visibly tighter with a firm, smooth appearance.

Ultraformer III meanwhile uses MMFU (Micro and Macro Focused Ultrasound) technology. It precisely targets multiple deeper layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen and providing long-term tightening of the skin.

Both are highly effective treatments, delivering long-lasting results. Many clients only require one treatment per year to reach their desired goals.

Body Contouring

At Artisan, we also offer a range of body contouring treatments, including truSculpt® and CoolSculpting™. These treatments differ to skin tightening by working to eliminate stubborn fat.

truSculpt® uses radiofrequency to deliver targeted heat to problem areas, damaging unwanted fat cells. These damaged cells are forced to breakdown and are then flushed away by your body’s natural process. The targeted heat energy stimulates collagen and elastin production, gradually tightening and improving the skin.

CoolSculpting™, on the other hand, uses patented controlled cooling technology that targets and kills fat cells. Similar to truSculpt®, your body naturally processes and eliminates the fat, resulting in a more contoured body shape.

Like with our skin tightening treatments, you generally only require one to two treatments to achieve desired results. Results are also long-lasting when combined with a healthy diet and exercise regime.
