This non-invasive body shaping procedure uses focused ultrasound pulses for selective fat-cell destruction. Unlike liposuction, Ultrashape® is non-surgical, which means there are no incisions or anesthetics - and no recovery time. Ultrashape® is virtually painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment. Although individual results and experiences may vary, some see results as quickly as two weeks after the initial treatment. This procedure will not cause pain or harm to surrounding tissues, nerves or muscles. For an FDA-cleared procedure that destroys fat cells with no downtime, contact Body By Design about Ultrashape®. Individual results may vary.
Velashape® is a non-invasive body contouring procedure used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. By combining infrared light with bipolar radiofrequency energy and vacuum, Velashape® stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin. This procedure allows you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and more youthful body with three treatment sessions. It can be used to treat cellulite under the chin, as well as on the arms, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Velashape® provides visible results with little downtime or discomfort. Although individual results may vary, many see gradual smoothing of the skin's surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite.

When it comes to weight loss, our team is equipped with the knowledge to help you learn more about how the ketogenic diet can help. This is a low-carbohydrate, high healthy fat diet that encourages the body to reach a state of ketosis. When ketosis occurs, your body takes the healthy fats and efficiently turns them into energy. By consuming more high-fat items instead of carbohydrates, you allow the body’s chemistry to rebalance, leading to natural weight loss.
The ketogenic diet has a variety of neurological and metabolic health benefits. It is essential to follow an approved program set up by our trained healthcare professionals at Body By Design. We offer ketogenic diet consultations to help you determine the details of a program that could help you lose weight in the healthiest way possible. Contact us today to set up a consultation.
Cupping is one of the oldest forms of manual therapy. By placing a glass or plastic cup onto the skin, a therapist creates a vacuum, which draws the skin, muscle and fascia up into the glass or cup. This vacuum can be created with either a hand suction pump or a burning cotton wool ball. The latter has become less common in modern therapy due to the lack of control on the suction. At Body By Design, we use controlled vacuum suction.
In Western medicine, cupping is used as a direct clinical application. The therapist notes an area of restriction and applies the suction directly onto it to affect change. This is different from traditional Eastern methods, which predominantly relied on affecting change in the line of meridians throughout the body. Used in conjunction with other massage treatments, cupping provides a different sensation and level of effectiveness, thereby improving overall results.
If you are experiencing muscle tension, including neck or shoulder pain, tight trapezius, lower back pain, spinal congestion or plantar fasciitis, then vacuum cupping therapy may be beneficial to you. Contact us today to learn more about scheduling your appointment.
The 810-Diode Laser hair removal treatments use light energy to permanently damage or destroy hair follicles—usually on the legs, back, underarms, or face—with the goal of preventing hair from growing back. Generally, people have six to eight laser hair removal treatments staggered every four to eight weeks to see results, plus an annual maintenance session.
The Q Switched Yag Tattoo Removal erases unwanted tattoos using high-intensity energy to penetrate the epidermis and break up the pigment into smaller ink particles. The body then metabolizes and excretes the ink particles. It selectively targets and removes the ink without damaging the surrounding tissue.
