There are various fat and cellulite reduction solutions on the market to choose from. It’s easy to get confused when researching which service may be right for you. To help make things a little clearer, Taking Shape has put together a comparison of invasive and non-invasive body slimming services on the market today and how they contrast to what we do at our body slimming clinic in Encinitas, CA.

Liposuction is an invasive choice to reduce excess fat and cellulite from your body. Liposuction surgically removes fat cells and damages a fair number in the process, rendering them ineffective of performing their natural functions. Fat cells are designed to store toxins and keep them away from your organs, regulate your body temperature, and regulate your hormones. Liposuction is not a permanent solution. If you gain excess fat in the future, that fat will store itself where you do have large numbers of fat cells such as around the thighs, lower legs, ankles, or the upper back. Often this new fat begins to clump which causes unattractive dimpling or a very uneven appearance. It is common to experience pain, discomfort, bruising and swelling. Liposuction requires up to eight weeks of recovery time. During this recovery time, you often have to abstain from exercise and are required to wear compression garments. Expect to pay a minimum of $5000 for this invasive procedure.

VelaShapeTM cellulite reduction therapy combines strong physical massage of the cellulite with infrared light and radio frequency energy to smooth your skin. Some people feel discomfort during the treatment including a strong heat sensation and pinching of the skin. Expect to pay a minimum of $300 – $600 per session.

Coolsculpting ® technology targets and kill fat cells in your body by freezing them. It can take between three weeks and two months to see results. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to six months after treatments. During the treatment you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure typical side effects may include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, tingling, stinging and pain. Expect to pay a minimum of $1500 per area.

Zerona ® cold lasers use low-level light, non-invasive technology to slim and re-contour the body. A minimum of six treatments is recommended. Each treatment is 40 minutes. Prices range from $1200 to $2400.

How is Taking Shape different than the services listed above?

  • The Taking Shape process is a non-invasive kick-start to improved health. There is no surgery, no pain, no bruising, and no recovery time. We do not harm or kill any fat cells.
  • During each body slimming treatment, we target low level light on a large area of the body and follow it up with a whole body vibration work-out. It’s common for us to focus on the inner thighs, outer thighs and hamstrings or the abdomen (upper and lower) and love handles.
  • Every body is different, but it is common to see and feel results in as little as four treatments.
  • Taking Shape uses the same low level light technology that Zerona uses, however, Zerona lasers only feature 5 light diodes which do not make contact with your body. The equipment we use features 112 light diodes, so treatment times are much shorter, and the Vevazz paddles are placed directly on your skin which we found to aid in delivering better results.
  • To help move our customers in a better direction, we offer a positive and nurturing approach. We educate our customers about how fat is released and eliminated by the body. Taking Shape encourages our customers to stop making excuses, and take control of their own wellness journey.
  • We provide information and coaching on topics ranging from meal planning to how to turn your body into a fat burning machine.
  • Taking Shape makes it a priority to keep our prices low, so you can afford to do more treatments and get better results.

It’s very common for non-invasive body slimming treatments (aka LipoLaser treatments) to cost anywhere from $150 to $400 per treatment. Treatments usually target one area of the body such as the abs, or love handles, or inner thighs, or outer thighs, or upper back. We think that’s a big investment for non-invasive services and one that’s difficult for many people to make in today’s economy.

Our packages start at $199.

This is a terrific value and a great way for you to get started losing stubborn fat and reducing cellulite. Remember – each body slimming treatment at Taking Shape includes a 14 minute LipoLaser treatment and a 10 minute Whole Body Vibration work-out customized to your fitness level.

How much money have you already spent on trying to lose weight? Gym memberships, fitness trainers, boot camps, diet supplements, juicers, treadmills . . . the list goes on. We know that many of you have spent hundreds or even thousands of dollars without seeing results.

Isn’t it time for a new and better result? We all know that diet and exercise play a part in winning the weight loss battle. But sometimes changing our eating habits and increasing our activity isn’t enough. Sometimes we need a little extra help to get the body slimming results we truly desire.
