17 Feb Is non-surgical body contouring right for me?
Non-surgical body contouring here in Melbourne
Sometimes even when we give our body plenty of exercise and healthy fuel, there doesn’t seem to be any change in any extra we carry around the tummy, love handles, bra area or back. If you’re like most clients who visit our clinic for body contouring, you know how difficult it can be to reduce stubborn fat pockets that just will not budge.
Body contouring on your own is challenging because there’s more to fat reduction than lifestyle habits; keeping healthy is fantastic and can lower your overall weight, but there’s almost no way to target specific areas. A number of influences such as age, genetics, hormonal or health conditions can also make our bodies retain fat, no matter the hard work put into maintaining our physique. If this all sounds familiar, you may just be the ideal candidate for non-surgical body contouring.
What is non-surgical body contouring?
Our sculpting treatment is the modern aesthetic clinic’s answer to liposuction, which involves removing fat cells via suction through a metal tube. This puts liposuction on the same level as any major surgery and so carries with it certain risks like bleeding, bruising and in some cases a negative reaction to the general anesthesia that must be used. Another common issue with liposuction is contour irregularities such as lumps, bumps and uneven fat distribution.
For many years liposuction was the only option, but today we’ve moved on and innovative non-surgical body contouring procedures like warm sculpting and cool sculpting are now available. These have made spot fat reduction safer, more comfortable and much more accessible.
Sculpsure’s warm sculpting is a procedure that uses laser in combination with comfort cooling to contour and sculpt the body – with results our clients consistently love. Cool sculpting on the other hand kills fat cells by freezing them in highly targeted areas. Both are completely non-invasive, delivering fat reduction with few side-effects and no recovery time so you can resume your daily activities straight away – and there’s no need for surgery or general anesthesia.
How does it work?
At Lumea Aesthetics our body sculpting treatment with SculpSure technology involves targeted lasers that heat up and permanently eliminate fat cells. Gentle, simultaneous cooling action keeps your skin comfortable while the laser energy raises the temperature of the fat cells below – our clients tend to feel alternating warming and cooling sensations with some tingling while the treatment is in progress.
Once complete, there’s no downtime and you can walk out of our clinic and resume your life straight away. The targeted fat cells will be destroyed and metabolised by your body’s lymphatic system over the next several months – and they’ll never grow back.
Each warm sculpting treatment takes on 25 minutes, while cool sculpting can take up to an hour. With a standard recommended course of two to three treatments, each four to six weeks apart, with most clients seeing noticeable results at the six-week mark; however, the treatment area will continue to improve for up to 12 weeks.

Who is the ideal candidate?
Body contouring is not a weight loss aid, but is perfect if you have isolated areas of stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise, designed to achieve smoother body curves and targeted fat reduction.We invite you to book a personalised consultation with a friendly member of our doctor-led team at one of our two locations in Collingwood or South Yarra – simply head to our website or call our clinic directly on 03 6144 6193.
