The Science Behind Non-Invasive Body Contouring

If you’re looking to contour, sculpt, and shape your body without the need for a surgical procedure, non-invasive body contouring may be a solution. Using technology such as radio frequency (RF), ultrasound, cryolipolysis, or laser these treatments non-invasively target and gently eliminate stubborn pockets of fat so you can achieve a more toned physique. However, it’s important to note that these treatments can’t be used as weight loss solution and shouldn’t substitute exercise and a healthy diet.

Why are these treatments an ideal option to address problem areas and hard to shift fat? Traditional surgical approaches, such as liposuction or lifts and tucks, require long recovery times, come with a range of risks, and may result in scarring. In comparison, these non-surgical methods have no downtime, fewer risks, fast treatment times, and more consistent and targeted results.

The Role of Fat Cells

Fat cells have a significant impact on your body shape. They store surplus energy (calories), growing in both size and number as weight gain occurs. With weight loss, these cells typically only shrink in size whilst their number remains the same. Non-invasive body contouring technologies work to shrink or eliminate targeted fat cells, sculpting the body to achieve your desired results.

Non-Invasive Technologies

A range of innovative technologies are used to non-invasively contour the body. This includes:

  • Radio frequency

This technology uses heat to destroy fat cells. An additional benefit of this treatment is the stimulation of collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother and firmer skin.

  • Ultrasound

This technology harnesses ultrasonic vibrations to form bubbles that break down fat cells, which then leave the body as waste.

  • Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis freezes and destroys fat cells, which are then removed from the body by the immune system.

  • Laser

Harnessing a particular wavelength, hyperthermic laser technology heats and break down fat cells. These cells are eliminated without affecting surrounding tissue.


Benefits of Non-Invasive Body Contouring  

  • Minimal downtime

Unlike surgical options that can require weeks or months of recovery, these procedures have minimal downtime ensuring you can return to your normal schedule following your treatment.

  • Safer procedures

These technologies contour the body without the need for surgery, which removes a myriad of risks including infection, scarring, and anaesthesia related complications.

  • Improved accuracy

All treatments specifically target fat cells, ensuring we can achieve more accurate and consistent results than those provided by surgical procedures.

Whilst non-invasive body sculpting treatments deliver a range of benefits with clinical studies validating their effectiveness in reducing fat, it’s important to remember that combining lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet and active lifestyle, are essential to prolong and further enhance your results.

Treatments at Ocean Cosmetics

At Ocean Cosmetics, we’re committed to staying at the forefront of technology and techniques to bring you a range of innovative treatment technologies that support your goals. This includes Emsculpt NEO, Emsculpt, Cristal Medical Cryolipolysis, and Exion Body.

Emsculpt NEO

This treatment combines RF and high intensity concentrated electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) to burn fat with the added benefit of building muscle, delivering noticeable results so patients can achieve a sculpted and enhanced physique.

Results from this treatment have demonstrated:

  • Up to a 30% reduction in fat tissue
  • Up to a 25% increase in muscle mass

This treatment can also be tailored to target muscles in the lateral abdomen with our Edge applicator. This has been specifically designed to target the curvature of the hips and back and facilitate optimal body contouring results.


Like Emsculpt NEO, this treatment uses HIFEM to non-invasively address both muscles and fat. It can treat the abdomen, thighs, and arms to improve muscle tone, and can be used on the buttocks to achieve a non-invasive butt lift. 

Cristal Medical Cryolipolysis

Stubborn areas of fat are targeted, and fat cells are frozen before they’re expelled naturally from the body. This is ideal to address problem areas on the abdomen, love handles, saddle bags, thighs, knees, and arms.

Exion Body

Part of the innovative Exion platform, this treatment uses Monopolar RF and ultrasound to facilitate fat reduction and address skin laxity. Promoting hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin production skin laxity is improved by up to 85%, whilst fat reduction of up to 22% can be achieved. This treatment is ideal to target areas including the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
