There are four main FDA approved technologies used for body contouring: cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting), Laser Lipolysis (WarmSculpting), Ultrasound lipolysis, and radiofrequency lipolysis.  Because of the pain and dangerous side effects of CoolSculping, Limelight instead offers the other three technologies effective for noninvasive lipolysis. These technologies can be used in conjunction and deliver great results with minimal discomfort.

Cynosure SculpSure

SculpSure was first cleared by the FDA in 2015 and is a noninvasive lipolysis method that uses laser energy to destroy fat cells. The body’s lymphatic system gets rid of the dead fat cells within the period of approximately 12 weeks after the procedure. SculpSure laser fat reduction is an ideal treatment experience for anyone looking to get rid of stubborn fat that has been resistant to proper dieting and exercise. SculpSure is highly effective for treating unwanted areas of fat in the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs.

Cynosure TempSure

This treatment uses a combination of radio frequency energy along with specially designed massage heads to tighten facial and body skin.  TempSure aims to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin, and improve the appearance of cellulite.  It is intended for use on forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, wrinkles, and cellulite on the body. The TempSure Firm is used to decrease the appearance of cellulite.  We often use this treatment in conjunction with the SculpSure laser fat removal device to adequately sculpt the body while subsequently tightening the skin.

Candela Ultrashape Power

UltraShape Power is FDA cleared for non-invasive reduction in abdominal circumference and fat reduction in the abdomen, flanks, and thighs.  It gently destroys fat by delivering focused and pulsed non-thermal ultrasound energy waves that selectively target fat cells while vessels, nerves, and surrounding tissue remain unaffected.  Typically, the best results are seen with three treatments spaced two weeks apart.

Erchonia Zerona

The Erchonia Zerona is a full body fat loss treatment that targets areas of stubborn fat.  This laser treatment uses cold, low-level laser energy to eliminate fat cells, which are then removed from the body through the lymphatic system.  This treatment can be used in the hips, abdomen, waist, chest, arms, and thighs.  This is a painless, no downtime procedure that typically takes about 30 minutes.

Stretch Mark Treatment

The Cynosure Icon 1540 Fractional laser is effective for improvement in facial skin and acne scarring and reducing stretch marks. The 1540 fractional laser treats stretch marks by causing collagen shrinkage and tightening the skin.  Typically, 4-5 treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results.
