This nonsurgical procedure will give your backside a fuller, more lifted look without the downtime and risks associated with surgical procedures. A nonsurgical butt lift will use dermal fillers such as Sculptra rather than a fat graft. It will not require liposuction because the injectable is a dermal collagen stimulator that will naturally and gradually produce volume after the treatment.
The only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to clear the underlying causes of cellulite, Cellfina™ works by targeting the fibrous bands under the dimpled areas of skin that cause cellulite.

This procedure uses cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy stubborn fat. The damaged fat cells are slowly digested over several months by the body and will be removed through the liver.
With 7 applicators, we are often able to perform dual or more applications at the same time to cut your treatment time in half or more. CoolSculpting Elite’s C-shaped applicators match the natural shape of your body, resulting in more comfortable, efficient, and shorter treatments than its predecessors. This ergonomic shape also allows for enhanced contact between the applicator and skin for up to 20-25% fat reduction in the targeted treatment area, compared to the legacy model’s 18-20%. CoolSculpting Elite is currently FDA-cleared to treat unwanted fat on the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and back, as well as underneath the chin (submental fat) and buttocks (banana roll).

Infini Genius microneedling rf
Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York is one of the first centers in the country to offer the INFINI Genius. The treatment works by using a combination of micro-needles and radiofrequency to deliver precise heat to a targeted area, creating thousands of targeted coagulation zones under the skin. It stimulates the body’s natural healing process and in effect, the damaged zones are replaced with new elastin and collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin. The treatment is a valuable solution for sagging skin without wrinkles.

RESONIC™ is a Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device developed by Soliton, Inc. that utilizes a unique, rapid pulse of shockwaves to break apart the fibrous septa bands beneath the skin that cause cellulite. This is the only medical device that uses RAP to be FDA-cleared as a non-invasive treatment option for patients seeking a non-surgical approach to improving cellulite’s appearance. Soliton’s RAP device delivers rapid, high-pressure shockwaves at a rate of up to 100 pulses per second to effectively break apart the fibrous septa bands beneath the skin that contribute to dimples in cellulite. Its repetition rate and very short rise times can induce mechanical disruption to targeted tissue at the cellular level, without damaging the skin. The result is the dimples’ release and smoother skin.

It treats most body parts including the face, eyes, lips, abdomen, arms, hands, thighs, and buttocks. Thermage® can also temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. It works by heating the deeper dermal layers, resulting in collagen production. New collagen will make the skin look firmer and tighter, improving the overall texture of the skin.

Questions and Answers
Q: What Are The Benefits Of Contouring?
A: Body contouring procedures are excellent ways to eliminate persistent pockets of fat or cellulite caused by genetics, lifestyle, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, or significant weight fluctuations. It can also address aging and skin laxity concerns, since, over time, you lose collagen which causes the skin to lose tension and firmness, and to bunch and sag.
Because body contouring procedures are noninvasive, the procedures forgo the physical stress put on the body, whether through incisions, bleeding, or general anesthesia. Body contouring also offers great results that are natural-looking with no significant recovery time after the procedure. There is no limitation on your normal activities after the procedure is performed.
Q: How Do Body Contouring Procedures Work?
A: During a noninvasive body contouring procedure, a dermatologist will typically use a handheld device for targeting fat cells. The FDA has approved several handheld devices for body contouring. They work by sending cold, heat, radiofrequency energy, or sound waves directly into the fat cells to destroy them without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
Q: Are The Results Permanent?
A: You can expect consistent long-term results with our body contouring procedures. Since our noninvasive fat removal procedures kill the fat cells, they are permanently eliminated. The only way fat will return is when new fat is introduced. It is highly recommended to be consistent with regular exercise and a healthy diet to maintain your ideal results.
Q: When Will I See Results?
A: Results appear gradually. Depending on the procedure performed, you may begin noticing changes as early as 3 weeks, and the full effect between 3-6 months after the last treatment.
Q: What Is The Recovery Time?
A: Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. You may experience temporary swelling and bruising but will usually not cause any downtime.
Q: Are There Side Effects?
A: Aside from swelling and bruising, other possible side effects include a burning or stinging sensation in the treated area, but these are just temporary.
Q: How Long Does A Procedure Take?
A: On average, a session can last between 30-90 minutes. This will depend on the type of procedure and the number of treatment areas. Body contouring procedures may also require more than one treatment session to achieve optimal results.
Q: Am I A Good Candidate For A Body Contouring Procedure?
A: You are a good candidate for a body contouring procedure if you have stubborn areas of fat that have become resistant to diet and exercise. You should also be near or at a healthy weight, and not significantly overweight.
Q: Are The Results Of Non Surgical Treatments Similar To Those Obtained From Liposuction?
A: Liposuction will still deliver more dramatic results compared to the more subtle changes that a noninvasive body contouring procedure provides.
