Body Contouring

What Does Body Contouring Entail?

There are many types of body contouring. Some are surgical, while others do not involve any invasive procedures. Therefore, it's important to get the details before deciding whether or not to get it done. Here at Bradley Therapeutic Massage, we can help you figure it out. 

Surgical body contouring in Massachusetts often takes the form of liposuction, which involves the physical removal of fat from strategic areas of the body. Like other procedures that are referred to as "contouring," liposuction is not meant to be a weight loss method. In fact, in terms of pounds, not much fat is removed. Instead, a bit of fat is taken from strategic areas with the intention of creating a well-toned or "sculpted" appearance in the treated area. For example, many women get it done to make their calves look better.

Often, people get body contouring done after losing weight through the traditional methods of dieting and exercising. After doing a lot of work in this way, they may be disappointed that they didn't end up looking like models. Liposuction can help bring the end result up to the original expectations, but it’s invasive and requires recovery time and post-op treatment.

Because of the possibility of post-op complications, many people are interested in non-surgical body contouring in Massachusetts. One way of producing the desired effect is through wood therapy. As part of this treatment, specialized wooden tools are used to massage the body, breaking up fluid buildups. This makes the skin look toned and helps to eliminate unwanted fluid retention. By getting rid of excess fluid, puffiness is reduced, so the natural contours of the body can show.

Another body contouring massage, Brazilian body shaping, is said to help reduce fat deposits as well as lowering water retention. It can actually reduce body circumference and help you present a slimmer image to show your weight loss in the best light. Functionally, it is very similar to wood therapy, but the either of these two Massachusetts massage services we offer may be more effective or personally preferred depending on your body or mindset.

A third technique, Cavitation Radio Frequency (RF) treatment is a newer aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This is the ideal treatment for those looking to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and tighten loose skin. After your cavi-RF treatments, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much younger and fuller your skin looks.
