A Smooth Silhouette

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is an all-encompassing term that refers to treatments designed to refine and rejuvenate a firm, sculpted appearance. At Veda Med Spa, we trust SkinPen microneedling to safely and effectively address signs of aging and other skin concerns throughout the body.

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a longstanding cosmetic treatment that stamps tiny needles into the skin, creating microchannels that stimulate the body’s natural repair mechanisms and allow for the increased absorption of topical serums and products.

The micro-injuries created with microneedling induce natural tissue remodeling and flood the treated area with collagen and elastin. As a result, skin is rejuvenated, gradually becoming smoother, firmer, and more luminous.

Planning Your Treatment

Your Microneedling Consultation

During your consultation, your aesthetics and wellness specialist will assess your skin and listen to your concerns, goals, and preferences for treatment to determine if you are a good candidate for microneedling. They will answer any questions you may have about the treatment process, including preparation and recovery, and together, you will curate your ideal, personalized care plan.

A Quick Solution with Lasting Results

Your Body Contouring Procedure

Our body contouring treatment requires no significant preparation or anesthesia. When you arrive on the day of your treatment, your provider will cleanse your skin. Numbing cream may be used for certain areas, but this is generally not necessary for body treatments. Once you are ready, your provider will use the handheld SkinPen tool to create microchannels around 1mm in depth.

You can expect your microneedling treatment to take approximately one hour for larger areas, such as the abdomen, though the duration can vary depending on the size of the target area. As soon as your treatment is complete, you will be free to return to your regular daily activities.

Ongoing Improvement

Body Contouring Results

You will notice some improvement in the elasticity of your skin soon after treatment, and within about a week, you will be able to see improvements in other aspects of your complexion. You can expect to realize the full effects of your microneedling about three months after your appointment, as this is how long it takes for natural tissue remodeling to occur.

Most patients undergo a series of three treatments spaced a month apart to achieve their best possible results. You can maximize the longevity of your results with follow-up treatment as needed, as well as daily skincare, sun protection, and a healthy lifestyle.

Heal Your Skin Naturally

Body Contouring Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery after body contouring with SkinPen is minimal. You may notice some mild redness and tenderness (similar to a sunburn) and swelling in the treated area, but these minor side effects will subside within a few hours.

You will need to keep the area clean as it heals, and you may be advised to apply a gentle topical serum or moisturizer to support healing and best results.

Frequently Asked Questions

SkinPen is FDA-approved and comes with minimal risks. However, such side effects may include bleeding, redness, bruising, itching, tightness, and peeling, although these minor concerns should resolve on their own within a week or two.

In some cases, your wrinkles may appear slightly deeper the first few days after your treatment, as moisture within your skin may be lost via the microchannels. This is a temporary effect, as the rejuvenation process will restore healthy, youthful moisture retention. However, you can mitigate this by applying hydrating serums and other products (with your provider’s approval) during the healing phase of your treatment.
