InModeMD’s Contoura machine addresses non-invasive body sculpting, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. It is our newest addition in no-downtime, lunch-time appropriate body sculpting technology. Contoura uses radio-frequency technology to achieve 360 degree body shaping goals that fit with your lifestyle and weight loss regime.
BodyFX uses a combination of radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure to body sculpt and remove cellulite. Electrical energy travels from the device to the subcutaneous fat tissue no more than 25 mm deep. This is just deep enough to eliminate unwanted subcutaneous fat cells, as well as stimulate collagen and elastin remodelling. Cellulite is eliminated and the skin is tightening because destroyed fat cells do not come back, while elastin and collagen regrowth smooths the appearance of skin.
We recommend using BodyFX once a week for a 6-8 week treatment cycle. We can also do longer treatments and space them out every 2-3 weeks, depending on what fits your schedule. Gradual improvements are noted with BodyFX treatment, however skin may feel softer and smoother immediately after leaving our office.
There is no downtime required for BodyFX treatment. Most patients experience a warming and pulling sensation during treatment. Some swelling and discomfort may be noticed after treatment, please contact us if you have any concerns regarding your treatment at any time.
Tone and refine your body with Contoura’s skin tightening solutions: the Plus (for body). Plus works by warming the skin and subcutaneous fat to increase metabolism, thus stimulating the growth of elastin and collagen in stretched, grumpy skin. The procedure feels like a hot massage, as the hand-piece is rubbed on the target area to destroy poorly aligned elastin and collagen and promote the growth of new fibres.
A minimum of 6 treatments, one treatment per week, is recommended for Plus and Forma patients. Each target area takes approximately 15 minutes to treat, which allows for no downtime. Patients find this treatment very relaxing, and notice some results immediately following treatment.
Forma is like Plus – only for your face! A smaller handpiece works like a hot stone massage to stimulate collagen and elastin remodelling as well as to tighten skin – just like the Plus does for your body. Stubborn lines and wrinkles can be improved with just one treatment from Forma.
Much like Plus, we recommend a minimum of 8 treatments, with one treatment per week, to get the best results. Fun fact: this treatment is not only one of Dr. Smith’s personal favourites, it’s also a celebrity favourite. Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and the Kardashian sisters love the Forma.
