Body Contouring Classes

Body Contouring ClassesThe majority of cosmetic treatments performed in the United States last year were considered minimally invasive and did not require major surgery. While the most common minimally invasive procedures were Botox and dermal fillers, there has been a steady rise in the number of noninvasive fat reduction procedures, also known as body sculpting or body contouring.

These FDA-approved techniques target unwanted fat on a person’s stomach, hips and thighs for a toned, sculpted physique. The most popular body sculpting technique, however, is CoolSculpting, a process that involves freezing fat cells beneath the surface of the skin until the cells die and shrink away.

Noninvasive fat reduction is quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing segments of the medical aesthetics industry, which is why there is a need for skin care specialists who are well versed in a variety of cosmetic treatments.

Since CoolSculpting is considered cosmetic, training is a must! National Laser Institute, the nation’s leading medical aesthetics training school, offers body contouring classes for people looking to jumpstart their career in this multi-billion-dollar industry!

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting uses a method known as cryolipolysis, which uses extreme cold to eliminate unwanted fat cells. This fat freezing procedure, which was discovered by two Harvard University scientists, uses a vacuum to rapidly chill the treatment area and effectively kill the fat cells. Over time, your body naturally eliminates these dead cells, leaving your clients with a more toned, sculpted appearance.

This one-of-a-kind fat freezing procedure is currently FDA-approved to treat nine areas of the body, including the chin, abdominals and love handles. In addition to eliminating unwanted fat in the treated area, CoolSculpting also stimulates collagen production, which increases the skin’s ability to bounce back after experiencing sudden fat loss.

Since noninvasive fat reduction is considered cosmetic, proper training is a must! The National Laser Institute offers body contouring classes where you will learn a variety of aesthetic noninvasive fat reduction procedures to address fat and cellulite, as well as several body sculpting techniques to deliver safe and effective treatments.
