People are always looking for ways to tighten areas of loose skin and improve the contours of their bodies. In the past, surgical treatments were the only option for achieving these results. But thanks to advances in technology, more non-surgical treatments are now available that can be used to achieve similar outcomes without surgery.

As we look ahead to this new year, let’s analyze some of the best non-surgical body contouring treatments available in 2023—the latest trends, techniques, and technologies that have revolutionized this field.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is any process or treatment that helps improve your body’s appearance by reducing unwanted fat and tightening skin. There are many different body contouring treatments available, but perhaps the most well-known surgical procedure for body contouring is liposuction.

There are a variety of non-surgical body contouring treatments available to patients. The most common types of treatments are:


Laser Treatments

There are many lasers we provide at the Cosmetic Laser Center of Maryland for all kinds of skin enhancements or minimal body contouring. These are often used as complements to surgical procedures or other non-surgical treatments to enhance or expand their results. For most laser procedures there is little downtime, although it depends on how large the treatment area is and how intense your specific treatment plan is.

What’s Trending for nonsurgical treatments in 2023?

When it comes to body contouring, there are a variety of different treatment options available. Nevertheless, not all of them are created equal.


EMFACE: The Non Surgical Facelift

What is the premise of EMFACE?

Emface works the major facial muscles which contribute significantly to our appearance in a way that could never be done ourselves. By using both Synch RF and HIFES, Emface restores skin tone, and lifts sagging skin. This has been shown by anatomical and electro physiologic studies. Until now, there has NEVER been any other non-surgical treatment that could improve sagging and volume loss in the mid face and forehead. The premise of Emface works the facial muscles in a more intense and efficient way, restoring the tone that is lost over time and lifts sagging skin.


Why is EMFACE called a non-surgical facelift?

Emface also supports the SMAS layer, the  superficial musculoaponeurotic system. This fibrous casing is similar to a segment of tissue under the skin,  which sags as we continue to age.

When undergoing facelift surgery, the lower portion of the face is tightened by resecting a part of the SMAS layer and lift and suture it up higher. The SMAS tissue begins at the cheekbone, and is attached at the jawline. When the SMAS layer is lifted so is the rest of the face. EMFACE is the ONLY way to NON-SURGICALLY LIFT THE SMAS layer.


How can EMFACE Improve Skin Tone and Improve Wrinkles?

Emface increases collagen and elastin production to firm up the skin and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Based on studies of human histology conducted by BTL, Collagen production is improved by 26% and Elastin levels by 129%.
