There’s a reason body contouring procedures are on the rise. At last, they’re getting their deserved praise for helping to sculpt your figure non-surgically and with minimal (or sometimes zero) downtime. So if you’re looking for a top-to-toe refresh, a new set of high-tech, non-invasive treatments will leave you feeling tighter and more toned – whether you’re targeting skin laxity, muscle tone, or even bloating.
At Mallucci, we don’t believe in ‘needing a beach body’ – all bodies are beach bodies if they’re on a beach. But we do believe in self-care, self-confidence, and doing what makes you feel good. If that means supercharging your gym routine with a round of CoolSculpting or EMSculpt Neo, then we’ve got you covered. Here are the best non-surgical body contouring treatments around…
1. For toning buttock, thigh, arm and abdominal muscles: EMSculpt Neo
EMSculpt Neo has fast become one of the most coveted body sculpting procedures around. Why? Because the high-powered treatment gives you fat reduction and muscle toning in one go. In fact, it triggers muscle contractions that are so powerful, they mimic the effects of 24,000 squats or 24,000 sit-ups in just 30 minutes. Even the most intense workout routine can’t rival EMSculpt Neo’s powerful results.
So, how does it work? The EMSculpt Neo device is passed over your chosen treatment area. It can be used to target a wide range of areas, including buttocks, thighs, arms and abdominal muscles. As this happens, you’ll feel a warming sensation courtesy of the radio frequency waves, which heat up layers of fat and cause them to permanently break down.
As this happens, you’ll also experience the supramaximal contractions triggered by the electromagnetic technology, which further boost fat reduction and help your muscles to grow. After 30 minutes, you’ll leave the clinic feeling like you’ve done the best cardio of your life, and after a course of 4-6 treatments, you’ll see your optimal results.
Who it’s for: Anyone who wants to maximise the results of their workout routine, and enjoy a tighter, more toned figure with long-lasting results. It can even be used to give you a non-surgical ‘butt lift’.
2. For targeting tech neck and stubborn pockets of fat: CoolSculpting
Do you spend a lot of time looking down at your phone? (Don’t we all?) According to beauty experts, this can lead to something called ‘tech neck’ or ‘tech chin’. Repeatedly tilting your head downwards may cause your neck skin to lose laxity over time, resulting in wrinkles, sagging and a ‘double chin’ effect. However, the high precision of a fat freezing procedure called CoolSculpting means it can sculpt and define your jawline by freezing the fat tissue under the skin. The device glides over the treatment area and crystallises the fat layers, so your body can then process and eliminate it for a more streamlined effect.
As you might have guessed, this fat reducing treatment can work on any part of the body. So, if there are other stubborn fat pockets you’re hoping to lose, CoolSculpting will target them both quickly and effectively. This includes abs, thighs, arms and buttocks – anywhere you’re hoping to contour. And, bonus: this fat freezing procedure is non-invasive with zero downtime, so it won’t get in the way of your everyday routine.
Who it’s for: Those who want to remove stubborn fat with a non-surgical approach. CoolSculpting is also a great option if you’re looking to complement your existing fitness regimen.
3. For improving skin elasticity from head to toe: NuEra radio frequency or Morpheus8
It’s natural and normal to notice areas of loose skin on your body, and if you want to tighten those areas, there are a variety of ways you can do so. A radio frequency treatment is one of the most popular routes. Traditionally lauded for its cheekbone-sculpting, jawline-tightening benefits, it’s also able to give you tighter skin on your décolletage, flanks (love handles), arms, abs and anywhere else you’re hoping to treat.
But with a variety of RF procedures available, which one do you choose? If you want to combine fat reduction and skin tightening, try the NuEra Body Tightening Treatment. It delivers powerful waves deep into tissue, giving stagnant fat cells a non-invasive zap, and the vibrations also promote collagen production, which is key for lifting and tightening the skin.
Meanwhile, if skin tightening is your number one goal, book in for Morpheus8. While it doesn’t offer fat reduction, it does give you more intensive tightening effects. The treatment fuses radio frequency with fractional micro needling to penetrate the skin’s deepest layers, in turn triggering the ‘rebuilding’ of your skin from the inside out. This makes it ideal for firming and smoothing your body, treating stretch marks, and even combining with CoolSculpting to target ‘tech neck’. If you’re not sure which to choose – NuEra or Morpheus8 – talk to your Mallucci expert about your goals.
Who it’s for: Anyone whose skin has lost its firmness, whether due to weight loss or natural changes that happen over time.
4. For smoothing lines and wrinkles: Sofwave™ or Profhilo Body
Looking for wrinkle reduction on your body? We hear a lot about smoothing fine lines on the face, but many of the procedures that rejuvenate your complexion can also be used from head to toe. Case in point: Sofwave™, an anti-wrinkle laser treatment that delivers instant results, meaning just one 30-60 minute appointment can make skin look immediately younger. Perfect for the neck, chest, abdomen, upper arms, inner thighs and knees, it irons out creases from day one, with effects that keep on improving over time.
Another go-to for instant wrinkle-smoothing benefits is Profhilo Body, a hyaluronic acid injectable (along with other skin-kind ingredients) which lends a radiant, plumped-up glow. Especially good for the décolletage, hands or knees, it helps to fill out lines from within. Have two treatments administered around four to six weeks apart for the best results.
Who it’s for: People wanting an instant reduction in wrinkles on the body, whether they’re treating the neck, arms, hands, legs or abs.
5. For reducing bloating and cellulite: Manual Lymphatic Drainage or Body Ballancer
There are so many benefits of Lymphatic Drainage, but one of the most talked about is its ability to reduce bloat and cellulite. This isn’t your usual relaxing massage; it’s a results-focused treatment that’s designed to break down fat cells, and leave you feeling light and renewed. Combining firm pressure with knowledge-led techniques bespoke to your body, each session sees your Mallucci expert stimulate the flow of lymph fluid to release toxins and waste.
Our Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage targets your whole body, so your belly, legs, arms, buttocks and décolletage are all treated to its tension-releasing effects. It’s also great for making you feel immediately revived and refreshed; a holistic wellness treatment that’s as good for your mind and mood as it is for your limbs.
You can also try the Body Ballancer at Mallucci; a lower-body sculpting ‘suit’ you sit back in as it delivers machine-driven lymphatic drainage. Great for improving cellulite, reducing water retention, boosting sluggish digestion and beating the bloat, it tones the abdomen, buttocks and legs, which are most commonly affected by fluid retention.
Who it’s for: Those hoping to reduce cellulite, who struggle with bloating, or simply want to feel fresher and more energised.
