Summer Sculpting: BAM's Body Contouring Guide

At BAM Wellness, we are passionate about helping you achieve your body contouring goals with the latest and most effective treatments. Whether you’re looking to sculpt and tone your body with CoolSculpting or achieve sustainable weight loss with Semaglutide injections, we are here to educate you on available treatment options that align with your health and wellness journey.


CoolSculpting: Sculpt and Tone

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling technology to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells. This FDA-approved procedure is designed to contour and shape specific areas of the body by freezing fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body over time.


Areas You Can Treat

CoolSculpting can effectively treat various areas where stubborn fat tends to accumulate, including:

  • Abdomen

  • Flanks (love handles)

  • Thighs (inner and outer)

  • Under the chin (double chin)

  • Upper arms

  • Back fat

  • Bra fat

  • Underneath the buttocks (banana roll)

Technology Breakdown

CoolSculpting employs a technology called Cryolipolysis, which involves:

  1. Targeting Fat Cells: A specialized applicator is placed on the treatment area, delivering precise cooling to target fat cells underneath the skin.

  2. Freezing Fat Cells: The cooling effect crystallizes the fat cells, causing them to undergo apoptosis (cell death).

  3. Natural Elimination: Over the following weeks and months, the body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, resulting in a more sculpted appearance


Ideal Candidate

CoolSculpting is ideal for individuals who:

  • Are close to their ideal body weight, but struggle with stubborn fat in specific areas

  • Are looking for a non-surgical solution to fat reduction

  • Are already incorporating positive lifestyle choices into their routine, but need assistance achieving desired results


Relatable Timeline for Results

Planning for an upcoming event? Here’s a general timeline to help you schedule your CoolSculpting treatments:

  • Consultation: 2-3 months before your event, schedule a consultation to determine the best treatment plan.

  • First Treatment: 8-10 weeks before the event, undergo your first CoolSculpting session.

  • Follow-Up Treatment: If needed, a follow-up session can be scheduled 4-6 weeks before the event.

  • Final Results: You’ll start seeing results within 3 weeks, with optimal results visible around 2-3 months post-treatment. Plan to start early to ensure you achieve your desired results in time for your special occasion.


Semaglutide Injections: Achieve Sustainable Weight Loss


Semaglutide is an injectable medication that assists with regulating appetite and food intake and therefore can result in effectiveness towards weight loss.


Areas You Can Treat

Semaglutide injections target overall body weight reduction rather than specific areas, making it an excellent option for individuals looking to achieve a healthier weight and improve their overall body composition.


Technology Breakdown

Semaglutide works through:

  1. Appetite Regulation: Semaglutide helps to regulate appetite by mimicking GLP-1, a hormone that influences hunger and satiety signals in the brain.

  2. Improved Metabolism: It can help improve insulin sensitivity and metabolic rate, aiding in more effective weight management.

  3. Sustained Weight Loss: With regular injections, patients experience reduced appetite, leading to significant and sustained weight loss over time.

Ideal Candidate

Semaglutide injections are suitable for individuals who:

  • All patients must undergo an examination and have medical clearance before continuing with Injectable weight loss, but the average ideal candidate will on average have a BMI of 27 or higher with at least one weight-related health condition or a BMI of 30 or higher without any health conditions

  • Struggle with weight loss through diet and exercise alone

  • Are committed to making long-term lifestyle changes to support their weight loss journey.

Relatable Timeline for Results

Here’s a timeline to help you plan your Semaglutide treatment before a major event:

  • Consultation: 4-6 months before your event, schedule a consultation to determine if Semaglutide is right for you.

  • Initial Phase: Begin your Semaglutide injections at least 4-6 months before the event. The medication is typically administered once a week.

  • Continued Progress: Over the next few months, you should notice a gradual reduction in appetite and steady weight loss.

  • Final Results: Significant weight loss can be achieved within 3-6 months, however that depends on individual response and results may vary. Plan to start early to ensure you achieve your desired results in time for your special occasion.
