Non-Invasive Body Sculpting

This FDA-approved, nonsurgical procedure targets specific areas of the body for effective and specialized results. By targeting the fat cells with safe cooling, Dr. Weishar and her licensed team are able to freeze and kill fat cells just below the surface of the skin. Once these unwanted fat cells are frozen, the body’s natural process takes place and removes the dead cells altogether. With virtually no recovery time, this quick and effective procedure can have clients back to their normal lives immediately.

Based on years of experience working with fat reduction treatments, Dr. Weishar has chosen to offer CoolSculpting in her Montgomery County practice because she believes it offers her patients the best results with the least amount of risk.

Sculpsure utilizes laser technology to precisely target certain areas of unwanted fat by heating fat cells without harming your protective layer of skin. This FDA-approved laser therapy kills fat cells, which are then removed naturally by the body’s elimination processes. This procedure is quick and relatively painless, with most patients experiencing a cool tingling for the duration of the treatment. Similar to CoolSculpting, there is very little recovery time.


Emsculpt is a non-surgical form of sculpting that both burns fat and builds muscle. High-intensity focused electromagnets force muscles to undergo intense contraction. These high-powered contractions help contour the body and build muscle. The result is a more toned physique with relatively little effort. This procedure is ideal for the abdomen and buttocks since it is less precise than Sculpsure or CoolSculpting.
