We’ll be breaking down each treatment, the treatment areas, and what you can expect from the procedure. So whether you’re looking to slim down your waistline or lift your face without surgery, stay tuned as we explore the top body and facial contouring treatments to try this year.
What is Facial and Body Contouring?
Facial and body contouring are cosmetic procedures designed to reshape and sculpt the body and face. Facial contouring typically focuses on improving the overall shape and symmetry of the face, such as by reducing the size of the jawline, enhancing cheekbones, or reshaping the nose. On the other hand, body contouring focuses on improving the body’s shape and appearance by reducing fat, tightening skin, or reshaping specific areas, such as the arms, abdomen, or thighs. Both facial and body contouring can be achieved through various methods, including non-invasive, minimally-invasive, and surgical procedures.
Here is a list of the top body and facial contouring procedures to watch in 2023:
Emeculpt Neo Fat Loss and Muscle Building
EMSCULPT NEO is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to build muscle and burn fat. The treatment is FDA-cleared and intended to improve abdominal tone, strengthen the core, and reduce the appearance of fat. Unlike traditional body contouring treatments, EMSCULPT NEO is a non-surgical procedure that does not require incisions or downtime.
The procedure stimulates muscle contractions similar to those achieved through a high-intensity workout, leading to muscle growth and fat loss. It can be used for the following:
This unique treatment is for anyone who has trouble getting rid of that last little bit of stubborn fat, no matter how much exercising or dieting they are doing. It requires various treatments spaced over days for optimal results. The amount of sessions each patient needs is unique and depends on their current body type.

How Long Does it Take to See Results?
Most patients expect some results after the first treatment session, with the most dramatic results appearing after completing a full treatment course. Results can continue to improve for several weeks after the final treatment.
EMSCULPT NEO is designed to build muscle and burn fat, so the results may differ for each individual. For example, some patients may see a noticeable improvement in muscle tone and definition after just one treatment, while others may need to wait several weeks to see the full effects. Additionally, results will be more apparent in people who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
Freeze the Fat Away and Tone the Body with Coolsculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze and eliminate fat cells. The procedure works by applying controlled cooling to the treatment area, which causes the fat cells to freeze and die. Over time, the body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, reducing fat in the treated area. CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the
- Submental (under the chin)
- Submandibular (under the jawline) area
- Upper arm
The procedure typically takes around 1 hour per treatment area, and most patients require a range of treatments (the number of sessions depends on the patient) per area to achieve the desired results. However, downtime is minimal, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
How Long Does it Take to See Results?
Results from CoolSculpting can typically be seen in about 2-4 weeks after the procedure, with the most dramatic results appearing after about 2-3 months. This is because it takes time for the body to process and eliminate the dead fat cells.
The final results of the treatment may take up to 6 months to fully appear. It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution; it’s a body contouring treatment that helps to reduce pockets of unwanted fat. The best candidate for the procedure are people with good skin elasticity, who are close to their ideal body weight, with specific areas of stubborn fat.
Emface Non-Invasive Face Lift
EMFACE is a non-invasive facial contouring treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone and texture. The treatment is similar to EMSCULPT NEO, but it is intended for facial use. EMFACE is FDA-cleared for non-invasive facial contouring, skin tightening, and wrinkle reduction. The procedure works by emitting electromagnetic energy that triggers deep muscle contractions and increased blood flow to the skin, promoting collagen production and stimulating the growth of new skin cells. This leads to a more youthful and toned appearance.
The treatment typically takes around 30 minutes, and a recommended treatment course is six sessions, spaced out every 2 to 3 days. Emface is the newest and only non-invasive procedure available designed to lift the face and turn back the clock for patients who are seeing the signs of aging take effects such as wrinkles, fine lines, and drooping skin.

How Long Does it Take to See Results?
The results of EMFACE can vary depending on the individual and the specific treatment being performed. Some patients may see some initial improvement after the first treatment. Still, the most significant changes typically occur after a full course of treatment, which Dr. Kovak at Kovak Cosmetic Center, a leader in facial sculpting in Chicago, recommends being six sessions.
It is also important to note that the results of EMFACE are not immediate, as the treatment works by stimulating collagen production and the growth of new skin cells, which takes time to occur. It may take several weeks or even months to see the full effects of the treatment. Some patients may notice an improvement in skin tone, texture, and firmness immediately, while others may not see the full results until several weeks after the final treatment session.
Vaser Liposuction with Renuvion Facial and Body Contouring
VASER Liposuction with Renuvion (VLR) is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that uses ultrasound technology to break up and remove unwanted fat and radio frequency energy to tighten and smooth the skin. The VASER liposuction system uses ultrasound energy to emulsify fat, making it easier to remove through a small cannula. Renuvion is then used to deliver radiofrequency energy to the treatment area, which helps to tighten and smooth the skin. The procedure is done under local anesthesia or IV sedation; it can be done in areas such as the
Recovery time is shorter than traditional liposuction. Patients can expect improvement in the treated area immediately after recovery, with the best results appearing after a few weeks. However, it’s important to note that the results can take up to 6 months to appear fully. VLR is also being used as an alternative to traditional buccal fat removal. Patients who have chubby cheeks, also known as chipmunk cheeks, caused by buccal fat pads can now have a less invasive way to sculpt the jawline, cheeks, and other facial features.
