Laser body contouring is among the many exciting, non-surgical innovations in dermatology. Thanks to laser-assisted technologies, patients avoid incisions, risks of scarring and unpleasant complications, and lengthy downtimes. Dr. Jeanine Downie and our team at image Dermatology® in Montclair are proud to offer several body contouring treatments.

A leader in non-invasive aesthetic treatments, BTL Aesthetics presents Emsculpt®. Using proprietary High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Field or HIFEM® technology, Emsculpt® is the first and only device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to both trim fat and build muscle. The device delivers targeted HIFEM® to areas of the body that are notoriously resistant to “conventional” fat reduction and muscle toning methods, such as diet and exercise (though it is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle!).

“Treatable” areas include the abdomen, buttocks, triceps, biceps, and calves. The energy produced by the device and delivered via specialized applicators induces “supramaximal” muscle contractions otherwise not achievable by the human brain or with rigorous exercise alone – equal to 20,000 crunches or squats in a half-hour!

Treatment doesn’t require special preparation or anesthesia. Each treatment session takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Afterward, you can get back to work and your day with little more than soreness, similar to what you feel after a hard workout. With around four treatments, on average, patients have enjoyed gradually improved results — fewer inches around the waist and gains in muscle mass. After around three months, full results are revealed. These results persist with a healthy, active lifestyle. No special diets or products are required to continue to look fit and toned, and to feel great.

To determine if you’re a good candidate for Emsculpt®, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Downie. She will review your medical history and examine the areas you want treated. If Emsculpt® is appropriate, Dr. Downie tailors a plan to meet your needs. She may recommend a combination treatment.

In addition to Emsculpt®, we offer Vanquish and Exilis Elite. Vanquish can be ideal for treating larger circumferential areas of the body such as the abdomen. Treatment involves placing a device over the treatment area. Utilizing radiofrequency technology, fat cells gradually melt away.

Exilis Elite can be ideal for treating smaller areas such as the face, neck, or jowls. However, the device can be utilized on virtually any area of the body. Exilis also melts fat cells, which are naturally eliminated from the body. Dr. Downie personally uses the body contouring treatment once a month and knows it benefits skin tightening.

Another treatment we offer is IntraGen for skin tightening. It is used to improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and treat nasolabial folds and large pores. It works from the inside out to improve various areas. The result is a more youthful appearance.

All of our body contouring treatments require no downtime, allowing you to return to work or resume normal activities immediately after treatment. We ensure the utmost comfort during all of our treatments. Rest assured you are in excellent hands at image Dermatology®.

In addition to body contouring treatments, we offer procedures to reduce the signs of aging. If wrinkles and fine lines concern you, we provide a premier line of injectables ranging from Botox to dermal fillers. Chemical peels can be utilized to deliver a more youthful look. Regardless of the reason for your skin concerns, we can find the right treatment for you. Dr. Downie can personally attest to the excellent results from the many treatments we offer.
