Sophistication ME offers truSculpt and Lipotherme body sculpting systems.

We now offer the latest technology for a non-surgical  way to reshape your body.  It is called truSculpt.  This new body contouring treatment uses warming radiofrequency energy to heat deep layers of skin and fat to improve your overall body contours by reducing fat,  assists with tightening loose skin and causes temporary improvement of cellullite.  After only 1 or 2 truSculpt sessions, you'll notice that your trouble zones look slimmer and smoother. 

 We will determine if this treatment is right for you during your consultation.  Typically, ideal patients for this procedure have a BMI of less than 27 and have unwanted fat in different areas of the body.

The Lipotherme is a laser assisted lipo-suction machine that has beneficial qualities of skin tightening after the lipo-suction.

The rapid recovery from these treatments is consistent with the fast-paced lifestyles of the customers who are the highest users of these services—typically people who are frequently in the public eye as part of their professional exposure.

Lipotherme is a safe, effective procedure performed by Dr. Pridgen that uses a laser to liquefy and remove unwanted fat in targeted body zones. In addition to removing unwanted fat, Lipotherme’s thermal effect causes the skin to tighten, resulting in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shaping goals.

Throughout history, heat has been used to promote health and well being. Lipotherme is a revolutionary technique that harnesses the power of heat-generating lasers to selectively break up unwanted body fat and reshape your body.

Lipo means fat, and therme means heat; so Lipotherme is literally the controlled application of heat to liquefy fat.

The clinical term for this type of procedure is laser-assisted lipolysis (also called laser lipolysis or laser lipo for short) which is an evolution of traditional liposuction. Although effective, traditional liposuction is considered a highly-invasive procedure. By contrast, Lipotherme laser lipolysis is a minimally-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. Most patients resume normal activities the day after their procedure, however, it is recommended you wait several days before resuming strenuous activity such as exercising. Depending on your goals and physical condition, Lipotherme can be an alternative to traditional liposuction, or your doctor may recommend a combination therapy of Lipotherme with traditional liposuction.

Lipotherme is the result of years of research into the ideal methods for targeting unwanted fat “zones” and eliminating them from the human body. Lipotherme was developed by a team of European researchers and thousands of satisfied patients have benefited from it.
