Body sculpting in Philadelphia

Body Sculpting in Philadelphia

A woman has glowing skin.

Change is inevitable, and you can witness this just by watching the evolution of a human. Everyone starts out as a teeny little baby, before transforming into a longer-limbed, harder-headed, toothed adult. The soft, adorable rolls of baby fat morph into the lean muscle of adolescence, to the contours of adulthood, and then eventually return back to softness. 

As we get older, our skin changes, our metabolism changes, and our hormones change. The simple truth is that time inevitably changes our bodies, and it can get to a point where it feels impossible to get the right curves and contours in the right places.

Whether aging, genetics, pregnancy and childbirth, or all of the above are to blame, you are not alone, and fortunately, you have lots of options. Thanks to the highly innovative field of medical aesthetics, there are now safe and effective options for rejuvenating your body and sculpting your shape that don’t require a single incision, allowing you to look and feel your best. 

About Face Aesthetics is a proud provider of body sculpting treatments in Philadelphia for tightening loose skin, reducing stubborn fat, and rebuilding lost confidence.

What Is Body Sculpting?

Body sculpting refers to a combination of nonsurgical treatments and techniques for refining and enhancing the natural contours of your body. In other words, body sculpting in Philadelphia is a high-tech, noninvasive way to fine-tune areas of your body.

There’s more to getting in shape than losing weight. Fat reduction is usually the first thing clients think of when it comes to body sculpting in Philadelphia. While reducing fat plays a major role in optimizing the shape of your silhouette, there are other important pieces to the puzzle. (If you are looking to lose weight, however, stay tuned for an exciting medical weight-loss program we’ll be launching in the near future!)

Loose skin can easily stand between you and your dream body, even after you’ve reached your ideal weight. After losing a lot of weight, many of our clients have been disheartened to notice that their skin looked stretched and loose.  For example, instead of snapping back into place like it was “supposed to” after working hard to lose 20+ pounds, one client’s tummy skin now hung over the waist of her pants. 

By tightening loose skin and eliminating those last holdouts of stubborn fat, body sculpting treatments can reduce sagging skin and improve the appearance of your physique. 

Treatments for Body Sculpting in Philadelphia

At About Face Aesthetics, we provide a range of customizable treatment options for body sculpting in Philadelphia so we can meet the complex and unique needs of each of our clients. 

Our treatment offerings can be sorted loosely into two main categories based on the results they provide: skin tightening and fat reduction. Certain treatments can sometimes even provide a combination of both skin tightening and fat reduction, though the results usually present more strongly as one or the other. 

In other words, it’s usually best to combine a treatment focused on skin tightening with a treatment focused on fat reduction (or vice versa) as opposed to expecting a single treatment to provide equal amounts of both benefits.

If you aren’t sure which type of treatment you need for body sculpting in Philadelphia, there’s no need to worry. At About Face Aesthetics, this isn’t a decision you have to make alone. Schedule a consultation with us and tell us about your concerns, and we can help determine the best treatment for you!


If skin tightening is the goal, then Thermage can help you cross the finish line. Thermage is a revolutionary, noninvasive solution for sagging skin on the face and body that uses RF (radiofrequency) energy to smooth and tighten skin. 

Not only can skin tightening improve the overall appearance and shape of your face and body, but it also rejuvenates the skin from the inside out. Clients who get Thermage treatments can expect tighter and younger-looking skin.

Thermage works by directing RF heat into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and restore existing collagen strands. Some skin treatments that use similar heating technology can cause discomfort or thermal damage to the surface of the skin. However, Thermage has an integrated cooling system to keep the surface of the skin at a comfortable temperature.

Each Thermage treatment session takes around 60 minutes, and usually, only one session is needed to attain maximum results

Not only is Thermage completely noninvasive, but it also doesn’t require any downtime. That means you can get back to business as usual as soon as your session is over. 


FDA-approved for eliminating excess body fat, SculpSure is a key component in many of our clients’ treatment plans for body sculpting in Philadelphia. SculpSure uses focused light energy (laser) to heat and destroy fat cells beneath the skin.

Like Thermage, SculpSure also uses cooling technology to regulate the surface temperature of the skin. This allows it to heat the subdermal (under the skin) tissue to fat-melting temperatures without causing any damage to the skin.

It’s important to keep in mind that SculpSure is, first and foremost, a fat-reducing treatment. That being said, it can sometimes cause a mild amount of skin tightening. This being the case, clients who need fat reduction and skin tightening for body sculpting in Philadelphia are usually better served by combining SculpSure with a separate skin tightening treatment.

SculpSure sessions are typically 25 minutes long. We’ll determine the number of recommended treatment sessions during the consultation after we’ve had an opportunity to assess the amount of unwanted fat that needs to be removed and where it needs to be removed from, but on average most people benefit from 4 sessions. 

SculpSure is most commonly used for reducing stubborn fat on the belly, love handles, back, and thighs.  

RF Microneedling

When your body stops producing collagen like it used to, your skin tends to get thinner and more prone to sagging and wrinkling. Fortunately, RF microneedling is a fantastic skin solution for boosting collagen production.

Microneedling creates a series of micro-injuries in the skin tissue to prompt a robust healing response from your body without causing lasting damage. The production of new collagen and elastin (the building blocks for firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin) takes place as part of this healing response. 

Essentially, what RF microneedling does is harness your body’s natural healing and restorative processes to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.

RF microneedling’s ability to tighten skin makes it an extremely valuable tool in our toolkit for body sculpting in Philadelphia. In addition to tightening loose skin, RF microneedling can also be used to treat several different skin concerns, including:

  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines
  • Sun spots
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Scars & acne scars
  • Rosacea 
  • Melasma

In addition to Morpheus8, we also use other microneedling devices like SkinPen and Vivace RF microneedling.

Microneedling treatment sessions usually last about 30 minutes, and most of our clients at About Face Aesthetics need 3 to 6 sessions to achieve their desired results. As far as downtime is concerned, the amount of recovery time needed varies from client to client, and it is also influenced by the intensity of the treatments and the size of the treatment area. The most common treatment areas for microneedling are the face, hands, hips, and stomach. 


Not all treatments for body sculpting in Philadelphia require electricity. Kybella is an injectable fat-reducing solution. When injected into excess fat, Kybella permanently destroys the fat cells over the course of a few to several weeks. 

One of the treatment areas most commonly associated with Kybella is the double chin (also known as excess submental fat), but Kybella can also be used on several other areas of the body, including:

  • Jaw
  • Neck
  • Underarm/bra fat
  • Back bulge 
  • Belly 
  • Love handles
  • Knees
  • Under the butt (“banana roll”)

So, what exactly is in a Kybella injection? Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced naturally by your body. Deoxycholic acid is produced and used by the body to do exactly what Kybella injections do—help the body break down and absorb fat. 

Each Kybella treatment session takes about 30 minutes, and most of our clients at About Face Aesthetics need 2 to 3 injection sessions to achieve their optimal results. Kybella results are permanent, and as long as clients maintain their weight, their results should last well into the future.  

After getting Kybella for body sculpting in Philadelphia, most of our clients experience some degree of swelling. If you experience swelling after your injections, don’t be alarmed. The swelling is a normal part of the process and should resolve in 1 to 2 weeks. You might also experience some soreness and tenderness during this period of time, but this, too, should resolve on its own.
