What is Body Sculpting?

When it comes to getting your dream body, many people think the answer boils down to two solutions: diet and exercise.

As it turns out, those solutions don’t necessarily work for everyone. And while they’re certainly an important part of a healthy lifestyle, the truth is that genetics can make it more difficult for some people to sculpt their body to the size and shape that they want.

That’s why, at Total Dermatology in Irvine, CA, we’re proud to offer a variety of body sculpting solutions, each of which are designed to help you get your dream body.

So what is body sculpting? And what treatments are currently available at Total Dermatology? Let’s take a look!

What is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of non-invasive treatments that help get rid of stubborn fat tissue that won’t respond to your typical diet and exercise regimens.

In general, a treatment is considered to fall under the “body sculpting” category if:

  • It helps minimize fat tissue
  • It targets specific body areas
  • It doesn’t require stitches, incisions, or general anesthesia
  • It is not treated as a weight-loss procedure

Let’s talk about that last point for a bit. Body sculpting should not be equated with a weight-loss treatment, as it’s not designed to help you target a specific number on the scale. Rather, body sculpting helps contour and minimize fat in localized areas to help you achieve a number of goals, such as:

  • Fit more comfortably into your favorite clothing
  • Get rid of fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise
  • Feel more confident in your clothing
  • And more

For that reason, the best candidates for body-sculpting treatments are those individuals who are within 15-30 pounds of their ideal weight, and already follow a healthy lifestyle. Results can be permanent, provided that clients continue to eat well and get plenty of exercise.

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved body-contouring procedure that uses cooling energy to crystallize fat cells clustered underneath the dermal tissue in popular treatment areas like:

  • The abdomen
  • Hips
  • Waistline
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Back & bra fat
  • Chest (for men)
  • Underneath the chin
  • And more

Once treated fat cells are crystallized, they eventually become damaged and leak out their contents. This causes the fat cells to shrink in size, resulting in noticeable inch reduction at the treatment site.

Thermage® Body

If you have loose skin on your body that’s preventing you from getting your dream shape, then it might be time to consider a Thermage® Body treatment. This FDA-cleared technology uses rapid pulses of energy to encourage skin-tightening and toning at the treatment site.

Thermage® Body can help improve the appearance of:

  • Crepey skin
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Improve cellulite 
  • And more


Liposonix is an innovative and exciting treatment that can help patients shrink down a dress size in a single treatment. That’s because Liposonix uses high intensity focused ultrasound energy to heat fat cells in a treatment area. Over the course of 8 to 12 weeks, the fat cells are flushed out by the body, resulting in significant inch reduction.

"WOW! I went into my appointment with a negitive attitude. I have all of my cosmetic procedures done in Europe and have very high standards. Even though I came across skeptical, I was treated with patience and respect. I had PRP and Botox and am so impressed with the quality and results. It is so nice to have a doctor that knows what he’s doing!
Thank you!!!!!"
