At Beverly Hills, CA dermatologist Ava Shamban, MD’s office, there’s a new term taking trend—and it involves what she refers to as “leveling-up body-contouring.”
According to Dr. Shamban, this targeted treatment goes “well beyond basics in circumference reduction” with a goal to create a curve in the body—aka, “waist-snatching”—and she’s pegging it as one of summer’s biggest must-haves.
“We now have a a variety of treatments and technology to create customized body contouring and a ‘couture contour’ for all your parts,” she says, adding that minimally invasive body-shaping and contouring is one area of aesthetics that has made incredible strides in the past several years.
“The range of dynamic and innovative tools, technologies and energies allow for a more highly curated, targeted and a truly customized approach to supporting efforts and goals our health and wellness, diet and fitness. Layered into multi-modality treatment programs, where the sum is greater than the parts, offers in- tandem toning, tightening, lifting, fat destruction and circumference reduction—all while boosting collagen and treating skin texture inside and out.”
Plus, she stresses, this includes even the hardest-to-treat areas.
While it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution, Dr. Shamban says the different modalities—her go-tos include CoolSculpting, Ultimate Contour, Sofwave, Kybella, Emsculpt and Emtone, combined with various other laser-assisted or radio frequency treatments—like Morpheus8 or C02 CoolPeel can be mixed and matched and layered to alleviate a long list of problem areas, including reducing axillary fat in the bra and back areas, toning the tummy, smoothing and sculpting the waist and the buttocks or reducing cellulite while concurrently tightening and toning arms, thighs, hips and love handles or reducing saddlebags, and treating ‘hip dips’.
