Body Sculpting Q&A

What is body sculpting?

Verju LaserBody sculpting refers to nonsurgical procedures to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. At Applewood Chiropractic, the team uses the Verjú laser to emulsify fat cells without surgery or suction devices. The treatment requires no downtime due to its noninvasive nature, so you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.

How does body sculpting work?

The Verjú laser targets fat cells underneath your skin, which is why it works best for stubborn fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise alone. The device emulsifies the targeted fat cells, causing them to collapse. That process causes your fat cells to release fatty lipids and shrink.

Once the fat cells collapse, your lymphatic system naturally removes them from your body. 

In addition to shrinking unwanted fat cells, Verjú laser treatments promote collagen stimulation, a protein that binds your connective tissues. In your youth, collagen is abundant, which keeps your skin supple and buoyant. As you age, however, collagen levels begin to deplete.

By simultaneously emulsifying fat cells and stimulating new collagen, the Verjú laser can help eliminate pockets of stubborn fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite.



Is body sculpting the same as weight loss?

While body sculpting can help remove unwanted fat, it is not a weight loss treatment. The ideal candidate for body sculpting treatments is fit and healthy. If you eat healthy and exercise regularly but still have stubborn pockets of fat, then body sculpting may be right for you. 

The team at Applewood Chiropractic can perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you’re a good candidate for Verjú.

What can I expect from body sculpting?

Clinical trials have proven effective at treating unwanted fat on the stomach, waist, hips, and thighs. Many people experience noticeable results within just two weeks of treatment. The device uses laser energy to shrink fat cells, so it’s more comfortable than minimally invasive and surgical procedures, like liposuction. 

Each treatment takes about 60 minutes. Depending on the areas you want to treat, the team at Applewood Chiropractic may recommend multiple sessions to achieve your desired results.
