What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is any non-surgical procedure that uses technology to refine an area of your body through fat reduction, muscle building, and/or skin tightening

It’s important to note that fat reduction treatments are not effective weight loss solutions; they are treatments that help you target specific areas to contour and refine with fat loss. Body sculpting (a term used interchangeably with body contouring and fat reduction treatments) uses targeted technology to treat areas of concern in the body. These treatments do this by helping reduce fat and tighten the skin in the treatment area! 

Patients may get body contouring on the abdomen, flanks, arms, and other areas difficult to target through exercise alone. There are a few types of body contouring treatments, and which one you choose depends on your desired results. One of our body contouring specialists can help you determine the best treatment for you with a consultation.

What Body Contouring Treatments Are Available At LIV Wellness Lounge?

We offer multiple body contouring options to help eliminate pesky fat and tighten loose skin on men and women. Below is information on each body contouring treatment available at LIV Wellness Lounge.

Emsculpt Neo®

body contouring in Ottawa

Emsculpt® is the first device to build muscle while sculpting the treatment area. It uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to trigger thousands of muscle contractions, improving muscle tone and strength 💪 The amount of muscle contractions produced with Emsculpt is an impossible task through voluntary exercise.

Emsculpt Neo® is the first and only non-invasive body contouring procedure that helps reduce fat and tones muscle! It uses the same high-intensity electromagnetic energy as Emsculpt but pairs it with radiofrequency designed to burn fat. Patients, on average, build 25% more muscle and lose 30% of fat in treated areas. You’ll feel slimmer and stronger with this treatment. Emsculpt Neo can also treat patients with a BMI up to 35, so it’s available to an even broader audience.

The FDA has cleared Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo to treat:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Thighs 
  • Arms

Exilis Ultra

Your skin will change as you age or experience major life events like pregnancy or significant weight loss. When your skin stretches out in any meaningful way or loses volume beneath it, you may experience skin laxity (loose skin). Skin laxity is also natural as you age since your body produces less collagen—the protein responsible for structure and firmness in the skin.

Exilis Ultra is a non-invasive treatment that combines radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to heat the skin. This stimulates new collagen production and improves the deep tissue structure, melting away fat, tightening your skin, and improving the appearance of wrinkles!

Exilis is best used to treat mild-to-moderate skin laxity. It can treat many areas on the face and body, including: 

  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Jawline
  • Abdomen
  • Forehead

There is no downtime after this treatment, and we typically recommend a series of 4 to 6 Exilis Ultra treatments spaced several days apart.


Cellulite is an incredibly common condition caused by skin dimpling due to fibrous bands and pressure on thin skin. For many of our clients, cellulite can hinder their self-confidence in certain types of clothing, like swimsuits or shorts.

It is challenging because cellulite is nearly impossible to target and improve through diet and exercise, so it’s mostly related to your skin. A fantastic non-invasive solution is Emtone® at LIV Wellness Lounge.

Emtone uses the power of radiofrequency and targeted pressure energy over areas with cellulite. These two types of technology work together to improve connective tissue and tighten skin!

Emtone is ideal for treating:

  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks

There is no downtime after your treatment, and you can achieve the best results possible after multiple treatment sessions. We typically recommend a minimum of 4 treatments spaced once a week.
