Full Body Contouring with Contoura
Dr. Min S. Ahn of the Aesthetic Wellness Center understands that while many individuals desire slimmer and more attractive body contours, not all of them are ready or appropriate candidates for surgery. He is pleased to offer the latest in non-surgical body contouring and sculpting with Contoura. From InMode, Contoura is a revolutionary and versatile system as it uses radiofrequency energy to target the deep layers of tissue to address fatty deposits, cellulite and skin laxity for truly remarkable results. Thanks to “A.C.E.” (acquire, control and extend) technology, the radiofrequency energy reaches the deep layers without damaging the surrounding skin and tissues. Treatment is quick and tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals. Dr. Ahn and his team will work with you to determine which Contoura procedure or combination of procedures will achieve the beautiful results you seek.

BodyFX is the only non-surgical fat reduction system that also effectively tightens skin. It is ideal for large body areas with stubborn fatty tissue, including the abdomen, back (or “flanks”) and thighs. BodyFX uses several clinically proven modalities — from radiofrequency energy to suction to negative pressure — to reduce fat and tighten skin.
MiniFX targets smaller regions with fatty deposits, including the neck, arms, and knees. It also uses innovative technology to produce a noticeable reduction in cellulite on various body areas.
Plus utilizes a sub-dermal heating applicator to stimulate subcutaneous tissue. The radiofrequency energy from the applicator flows uniformly between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience while the built-in temperature sensors control skin temperature to avoid overheating and under-correction. Plus stimulates new collagen production to improve skin elasticity and firmness.
Ideal candidates for BodyFX, MiniFX, and Forma Plus are individuals of a healthy weight who have mild to moderate cellulite, loose skin and small deposits of fat. If you wish to lose a substantial amount of weight or have severe skin laxity and cellulite, Dr. Ahn may recommend an alternative procedure.
Your Contoura Treatment with Aesthetic Wellness Center
Treatments with BodyFX, MiniFX, and Forma Plus are quick and painless. Depending on the specific treatment, a hand piece will be applied over the treatment area. The device will use gentle vacuum suction to stimulate the tissues and radiofrequency energy to heat them. This combination causes the underlying fat cells to die. For skin tightening and cellulite treatment, the radiofrequency energy will trigger the body’s collagen production to create firmer and smoother skin.
Results will be visible soon after treatment and will gradually improve over the following weeks. There is very little downtime with BodyFX, MiniFX, and Forma Plus. You may notice slight redness, soreness or numbness in the treatment area but these subside quickly. For best results, multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart may be needed.
