All the available exercise may not reduce your muffin top or waist circumference. Only a complete exercise plan can reduce muffin tops. However, these exercise plans take time. Some exercise properly and maintain a healthy diet without any results, which makes them go for painful or costly surgical procedure. However, you can get that perfect body with non-surgical body shaping procedures.

Such treatments make use of advanced technology deliver energy underneath the surface of the skin comfortably and safely. It works by improving the appearance of muffin top skin and also target smaller areas (jawline, arms) and bigger areas like the thighs and buttocks.

What are the non-invasive treatments for body shaping?

Want to get rid of muffin top without going under the knife? VelaShape is the perfect treatment for you. It is a medical device used for renewing collagen; it targets the connective tissue and dermal structure to minimize the muffin top while improving the quality of the skin.

How does it work?

VelaShape combines IR (infrared), Bi-Polar RF (radio frequency) and pulsed vacuum. This heats fat cells, dermal collagen, and connective tissues.

The procedure enhances the growth of new and elastin and collagen which result in a localized reduction in body volume and mass and the reduction of muffin top.


CoolSculpting is a minimally traumatic and non-invasive procedure, which doesn’t produce and tissue damage that is created by invasive treatment. Also, it does not make use of more destructive energy application like ultrasonic liposuction.

The CoolSculpting system offers focused cooling of the targeted area, which stimulates changes in the fatty areas, resulting in the removal of the fat cells from the body.

The treatment targets fat cells only, meaning, non-fat cells like blood vessels, and skin cells, are not affected. Over the next 3months, the destroyed fat cells are cleared from the body by the lymphatic and immune systems gradually.  As the cells deteriorate, the tissue in the targeted area improves.

What is so amazing about CoolSculpting is the fact that it eliminates fat permanently. The fat cell contents and membranes treated by CoolSculpting go away completely.

Kuma shape:

This machine works more on the skin tightening on the treatment area. The treated skin is sucked in and the machine exposes it to powerful massaging rollers with high temperature due to IR and RF.

  • A neurologic disease around the targeted area
  • Metal implants in the targeted area
  • Varicose veins
