What to Expect Before, During, and After a Body Contouring Treatment

At The Wellness Clinic at New Boston Village in Fall River, MA, we are SouthCoast’s premier non-invasive Core-to-Floor and Taut-Toned Center. We offer medically supervised treatments that aim to help individuals remain vigorous and youthful, providing the latest in body contouring solutions. Whether you’re new to the realm of med spa treatments or simply seeking more information, this guide will provide insights on what to expect before, during, and after a body contouring treatment.

What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring directly targets the body’s silhouette, enhancing natural lines and reducing unwanted areas of fat. Instead of simply aiming for weight loss, body contouring emphasizes shape and definition. With advanced technologies such as EMSCULPT NEO® and EMTONE®, individuals can pursue aesthetic enhancements specific to their goals in the realm of med spa treatments.

What Are the Benefits of Body Contouring?

Fat Reduction

Non-invasive body contouring techniques effectively target and reduce localized fat deposits. By focusing on specific areas, these treatments break down fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the body.

Cellulite Reduction

The benefits of body contouring extend beyond just fat elimination. Treatments also address cellulite, the dimpled appearance often found on thighs and buttocks, offering a smoother and more even skin texture.

Skin Tightening

Loose or sagging skin can be a concern for many. Body contouring treatments stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer and more youthful-looking skin over time.

Muscle Toning

By stimulating muscle contractions, body contouring treatments enhance muscle definition. This leads to toned muscles that not only look more defined but also contribute to a more sculpted overall appearance.

What Are the Types of Body Contouring?


EMSCULPT NEO is a type of body contouring that uses a combination of radiofrequency heating and high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology. These technologies target both unwanted fat and untoned muscle in the treated areas. The heat from the radiofrequency technology breaks down fat cells while the electromagnetic energy causes muscles to contract, strengthening and toning them over a series of treatments.


EMTONE is a body sculpting device that integrates acoustic wave technology with radiofrequency energy. This dual action specifically tackles cellulite and skin laxity. By addressing the root causes of cellulite and sagging skin and rebuilding collagen, EMTONE helps achieve smoother skin texture and enhanced tone and elasticity.

Before the Treatment


Before your non-surgical body contouring treatment, you will have an initial consultation. Here, we assess your goals, medical history, and any potential contraindications to ensure the treatments are right for you. This dialogue helps us tailor a plan that aligns with your objectives and establishes a foundation for a successful treatment experience.

Preparing for the Treatment

Before your body contouring session, you will want to follow a few preparation steps. This usually includes staying hydrated, avoiding certain medications or supplements, and making sure the targeted area is clean. We’ll provide a detailed list of pre-treatment guidelines to optimize results and promote a smooth treatment process.

Setting Realistic Expectations

While body contouring treatments can provide significant enhancements, you will want to set realistic expectations. Results can vary based on individual factors like skin elasticity and the specific area treated. During the consultation, we’ll discuss anticipated outcomes and the number of sessions you’ll want to schedule to achieve your desired results.

During the Treatment

What to Bring and Wear

For non-invasive body contouring treatments, comfort is key. While specific recommendations might vary, it’s generally advised to wear loose-fitting clothes that allow easy access to the treatment area. Additionally, bring any documentation or previous medical records that might be relevant, especially if it’s your first session.

What to Expect

  • EMSCULPT NEO: This treatment feels like an intensive workout as it prompts muscle contractions. However, the simultaneous radiofrequency heating provides warmth, making the experience tolerable and even comfortable. Each session typically lasts around 30 minutes, and you’ll feel the device working on both muscle enhancement and fat reduction.
  • EMTONE: With EMTONE, you can expect a sensation of warmth and gentle pressure, akin to a hot stone massage. This is due to the combined effects of radiofrequency energy and acoustic waves targeting cellulite and skin laxity. Each session is also approximately 30 minutes, focusing on improving skin texture and tone.

After the Treatment

Immediate Aftercare

Post body contouring treatment, it’s common to experience some redness in the treated area, which should subside within a few hours. Make sure to stay hydrated, avoid vigorous activities, and follow any specific aftercare instructions provided. This helps you to have a swift recovery and maximizes the benefits of the treatment.

Short-Term and Long-Term Results

With non-surgical body contouring treatments, short-term results can be noticed within a few weeks, marked by initial improvements in the treated area’s tone and texture. However, the full results, from fat reduction to enhanced muscle definition, typically become more evident after multiple sessions. It’s also worth noting that individual factors, such as metabolism and lifestyle, can influence the duration and prominence of outcomes.

Maintaining Your Results

To sustain the gains from body sculpting, we recommend maintaining a stable weight and engaging in regular physical activity. Proper nutrition and hydration also play a role in prolonging the effects, keeping the treated areas toned and refined. Periodic maintenance sessions might also be recommended, depending on individual goals and the specific treatment chosen.
