4 Benefits of Body Contouring

Have you worked hard to lose weight but are still stuck with problem areas? Or maybe your overall body weight has stayed the same, but as you’ve aged, ended up with pockets of fat. Either way, you’re not alone.

Many people experience stubborn fat that refuses to disappear. Fortunately, Dr. Goodnight’s Everlasting Beauty, located in Ridgewood, New Jersey, has an exceptional solution: non-invasive body contouring.

Body contouring is one of our most requested treatments because you can slim down and get rid of those problem areas without the risks of surgery.

Though avoiding surgery is important, it’s not the only reason our patients love body sculpting. Read on to learn about the four top benefits of non-invasive body sculpting.

1. Get the well-toned body of your dreams 

When you diet and exercise to lose weight, the fat burns from all over your body. Unfortunately, you can’t always choose where the fat is eliminated.

How and where your body holds onto fat is determined by factors that aren’t associated with diet and exercise. Genetics, gender, age, and hormones all contribute to where fat is stored.

Body sculpting is the perfect solution because it precisely targets your problem areas. We use two advanced systems to give you the body you deserve, including:

Venus Concept® devices

The Venus Concept devices use radiofrequency energy to safely target fat. Fat cells absorb the energy, which, in turn, heats and destroys them. 

While fat cells are treated, the radiofrequency energy also tightens your skin, so you don’t have loose skin after the fat disappears.


CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells, which destroys them just as efficiently as heat. This technique works because fat cells freeze long before the CoolSculpting device gets cold enough to damage your skin or any other tissues.

2. Combined procedures treat many problem areas

We often accelerate your results by combining Venus Concept and CoolSculpting, a procedure we call Fire & Ice Body Contouring. First, you get a 10-minute treatment with the Venus device. That’s followed by a 35-minute session with CoolSculpting to target any remaining fat pockets.

Whether used alone or together, these body sculpting treatments can reduce and tighten every problem area, including your:

Your body sculpting treatment may also help eliminate cellulite.

3. Fast recovery with no downtime

Non-invasive body sculpting causes few side effects. And the ones that do appear are so mild that you can still go back to your usual daily routine as soon as your session finishes.

After treatment with the Venus Concept device, the treatment area may appear red or warm to the touch. These side effects should disappear in a few hours. CoolSculpting can also cause short-lasting side effects such as redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, itching, or tenderness.

4. Long-lasting results

You might be wondering how long the results from body contouring last. The good news is, they can last the rest of your lifetime, as long as you don’t gain weight.

The Venus Concept system and CoolSculpting treatments permanently destroy the fat cells. After your treatment, your body eliminates the cellular waste, removing the original cell along with the fat stored inside.

Though the treated fat cells are gone for good, you can undo the results if you gain weight in the future. Your body can create new fat cells that may start to fill in the same problem areas.

If you’re ready to consider body contouring or you have questions, call Dr. James Goodnight or book an appointment online.
