About Body COntouring
When you want to get rid of specific areas of fat on your body or tighten mildly loose skin, you are not going to accomplish through diet and exercise. Pinpointing where your body gets lean or firm is very difficult to do for anyone. A new level in body sculpting and skin tightening is here at Summerlin Dermatology in Las Vegas, NV. With radiofrequency (RF) heat, our aesthetics team (under the leadership of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Reuel Aspacio) can apply the Venus Legacy or truSculpt 3D technologies to help you reduce fat cells, smooth cellulite, tighten up skin, and improve facial lines and wrinkles in the areas treated. Your body will naturally produce more collagen in the skin to help with signs of aging after this treatment as well.
Your Venus Legacy or truSculpt 3D session can take about 30 minutes (which is great if you want to get this accomplished on a lunch hour) and can be repeated weekly. The nonsurgical fat reduction applications will reduce the fat cells in the treated skin plus reshape and redefine how your trouble areas look. Skin tightening may be applied to most areas of the face and body, such as the eyelids, face, jawline, neck, chest, arms, abdomen, buttocks, and legs. Our body sculpting procedures are customized to your body by Dr. Aspacio quickly and easily for targeting problem areas both large and small. Let us show you that your ideal body is within reach with our nonsurgical body contouring procedures at Summerlin Dermatology.
"Awesome! They helped clear up my eczema! I've been struggling with eczema since I was 5 years old but it's gotten worse over the past few years, so coming here I was hesitant because I've gone to a doctor about my eczema and was prescribed something that burned and was very discomforting, after that experience I've just dealt with it and tried natural remedies. But I am so glad I decided to try this place out! My prescription was not pricey they made sure of that and my eczema was clearing up within 2 weeks! There was no discomfort using it and after a month it seemed to be completely cleared up. I am so grateful for them! I haven't seen my skin this clear in so long! Thank you!"- L.L. / Google / May 24, 2019

"Awesome Doctor - Hi. I just left one review but found the need to leave another. The staff at summerlin dermatology is awesome. From Jose and the girls at the front to my great coordinator Trish Hoffman. Every time I feel the need to get refreshed, and believe me at my age (65) its a lot I call the friendly staff at Summerlin Dermatology and Trish calls me back within minutes to schedule me in, when I can fit in. She is the greatest. She assist Dr. Aspacio before he comes in to inject botox and fillers I need. Very knowledgable, she always knows what I need done and never tries to upsale me. She gets me prepared for Dr. Aspacio and listens to what I what and makes suggestions for me which are always the right ones. I love Trish, she is the best and between the two of them I feel confident and revived when they are through. Dr Aspacio, magic fingers, is the best injecter I've been to. He is always LAUGHING AND smiling and he prepares you by marking his spots beforehand to prepare for the injections. A very knowledgable, professional doctor, I also come in on the skin side to get checked once a year to make sure nothing is cancerous, and he is efficient and doesn't leave any parts unchecked. I have been coming here for 5 years, if not longer now, and highly recommend his conviently located office on W Sahara, which is easy to get in and out off. The whole staff, is awesome and friendly and tries to have you leave satisfied. I love you guys, and Especially Trish and DR. Aspacio, who giggles all the time. Thankyou Yvonne"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 07, 2019
"Awesome. I highly recommend a visit to this office - First. As soon as you enter Dr Aspacio's office you are greeted with smiles from all of the front staff. Jose and the girls are always friendly and down to earth. I have been coming here for a few years now and have always been treated quickly, professionally and with a smile. I usually get injections by Dr. Aspacio so his coordinator Trisha Hoffman always handles my needs. She is so upbeat, pleasant and caters to my needs. She never pushes treatments on me I don't need and listens to what I really want. Trisha is absolutely the greatest and very knowledgable in her profession. Now Dr Aspacio, is another thing. He giggles, and laughs every time I come in. He is the greatest injector, always gentle, especially since My face is sensitive to needles, and at my age (65) I need a lot. He looks at your face, marks where you need it and uses his gentle hands to inject the fillers. I love these two, they are quit the team. I recommend Dr Aspacio as he is absolutely wonderful, from entering his office to leaving. And Trish is the greatest. She takes care of everything that you need so when you leave you feel satisfied that you got your monies worth. I highly recommend a visit to this office. Dr Aspacio is also very thorough in inspecting your body for any cancerous moles or sun issues which I get checked every year, on the dermatology side. There is also a skin esthetician for any of your skin treatments, like obagi. I will continue to go toothier office which is conviently located on W Sahara and easy to get to. Thankyou you guys for all you do. Yvonne"- F. / RealSelf / May 07, 2019

Candidates for our nonsurgical body contouring are health conscious and maintain their weight (with limited fluctuations). These patients may be looking for a nonsurgical alternative to changing stubborn areas of fat (like the love handles) when their eating and exercising habits just won't make it budge. While it really is not possible to target specific areas on your body at the gym, you can pinpoint the areas you want to reshape with nonsurgical body contouring.
You may not be a candidate for nonsurgical body contouring or skin tightening if:
- You are pregnant or currently breastfeeding
- You have a skin-related autoimmune disease like lupus
- You are being treated for an infection, active inflammation, cancer, varicose veins, an uncontrolled thyroid disorder, or any degenerative neurological disease that is induced by heat
- You have had cancer in the past
- You are going through infertility treatments like IVF
- You have an internal pacemaker or defibrillator, metal implants, or silicone implants, or injections in the treatment area
This is not a procedure for patients that need to lose a lot of weight, but it can be a reduction technique for those with small pockets of localized fat. However, Dr. Aspacio can discuss with you a plan of action for your skin as you lose the weight and help with skin elasticity issues. This is a very common occurrence for weight loss patients. Loose skin becomes a barrier to progress as pounds are dropped. Eventually, if enough fat is lost, it may be necessary to have the excess skin removed by a surgeon.
To make your appointment go quickly and smoothly, we ask that you not wear lotions, creams, makeup, or jewelry to your nonsurgical skin contouring appointment. Your skin needs to be clean before we begin to apply the treatment. Here at Summerlin Dermatology, we have the Venus Legacy and truScupt 3D technologies that safely heat the skin to achieve your intended goal. A handpiece (large or small) will be gently passed over for RF energy to be delivered to the places you choose to target. You will feel no discomfort as the handpiece is moved on your skin. The sensation of heat may make the skin a little rosy for a few hours, but you should not have an unpleasant experience. Most of our patients relax or sleep during their sessions.
Once the procedure is over, you can go home and go about your day as normal. Your skin may be warm and red where the device was placed, but there should be no discomfort. You can also apply makeup, lotions, and sunscreen to your skin right after your session.
What to Expect
While you won't see your results right away, you can expect your results to last for 3 – 4 months. The body has to have time to react to the application, which may take several sessions to make a difference in your skin. Maintenance sessions will be needed to see continuous improvements in your skin. Patients may find their eyelids are firmer, the neck and jawline are more sculpted, and abdomen, buttocks, and thighs are tighter. If at any time you have a question or concern about our nonsurgical body contouring, please feel free to ask Dr. Aspacio or one of his knowledgeable certified medical aestheticians. We are here to help you reach your beauty goals. We would be happy to show you how each device works, discuss the risks and benefits, and help you decide on the right course of action.
