What Is Body Contouring?

Even women and men who exercise regularly and eat a nutritious diet often struggle with isolated pockets of excess fat, areas of cellulite, or skin laxity. These common cosmetic concerns can be particularly frustrating when traditional methods of weight loss and fitness fail to achieve the desired results. With our state-of-the-art non-surgical body contouring options, our patients at The Skin Institute of New Orleans can now supplement their diet and exercise efforts, enhance the natural contours of the body, and achieve a more toned aesthetic.

Dr. Richard Sherman offers two main body contouring options at our practice: UltraShape® and VelaShape®. UltraShape® is designed to target and reduce stubborn fat deposits while VelaShape® is used for the treatment of cellulite and rippled skin. One treatment session for either procedure can be completed in under an hour and there is no associated downtime. Most patients opt for a series of three treatment sessions, and patients can notice significant improvement within twelve weeks. UltraShape® and VelaShape® may also be combined to maximize the impact of the final results.
