Why adding body contouring to your business is a smart business move

The number of consumers seeking non-invasive body contouring treatments has been booming and continues to grow rapidly. It comes as no surprise that savvy healthcare and beauty business owners like you want to jump into body contouring. 


What’s driving the demand for body contouring treatments?

Non-invasive body contouring services appeal to so many people because there’s

  1. Little to no downtime involved
  2. Few to no side effects experienced
  3. Known treatment safety record
  4. Reliable results 


Why do so many business owners want to get started with body contouring?

  • Starting something new involves risks, but with body contouring there is little risk due to the high demand for the treatments from consumers.  
  • Not to mention the low costs associated with getting started with body contouring.  

More about the low costs to get started later…

How we got started in body contouring

It’s hard to believe but in 2006, the year we opened our first medical spa, non-invasive body contouring machines did not exist.  The brand new medspa industry was solely focused on skincare, anti-aging treatments and hair removal.


But soon thereafter, in mid-2007, manufacturers rolled out the first fat reduction machines powered by radiofrequency technology.  And we invested!


And boy did it pay off.  Our radiofrequency fat reduction machine was busy all day every day.  It was the beginning of our obsession with body contouring.   


It’s important to note that at this time, body contouring machines were available only to physicians or businesses with medical directors. 


The three levels of body contouring machines and why you should start with a Level III machine to launch your body contouring business

The evolution of body contouring machines

Soon after the arrival of radiofrequency in 2007, three years later in 2010 cryolipolysis and red light therapy (LED) were ushered in, with ultrasound cavitation entering the market in 2011.  


Manufacturers managed to keep up with consumer demand as more and more machines entered the market, month-by-month and year-by-year..  


In those early days (2007-2013) of body contouring, the three levels of machines didn’t exist.  Or you could say that only Level I machines were available. 


It was around 2013, when overseas manufacturers began offering body contouring machines...to anyone who wanted to buy them.  No physician required.  This was the dawn of Level III machines.  (Level II machines appeared on the scene sometime later.)

Today, there are 3 levels of body contouring machines

  • Level I - Medical Grade 
  • Level 2 - Paramedical Grade
  • Level 3 - Entry Level

Level I  Medical Grade Equipment and Devices


This equipment has conditions to purchase: 

Just as it was in the dawn of body contouring, your business must have a physician or a medical director to purchase and/or operate  these medical grade Level I machines.


Level I machine examples: Coolsculpting, Emsculpt, Sculpsure

Level II - Paramedical Grade Machines


These machines also have conditions to purchase:  

These manufacturers/distributors require you to be a successful business owner and pass certain steps to purchase.  


Level II machine examples: Cryoskin, Endospheres


Level III - Entry Level Body Contouring Machines


These machines have no conditions to purchase:  

No conditions to purchase.  These machines are perfect for those starting out in body contouring and are great for experienced providers too.  Even though we have a physician in our medical spa, we use both Level I and Level III body contouring machines alike. 


Level III machine examples: 6 in 1 Cavitation machine, Pressotherapy machine, Vacuum therapy machine


The best ‘first’ Level III body contouring machine to launch your body contouring business is the 6 in 1 Cavitation machine

The top six body problems your clients want you to address with body contouring:

  1. Fat reduction
  2. Skin tightening
  3. Cellulite smoothing
  4. Stretch mark fading
  5. Muscle toning
  6. Buttocks enhancement

Well…the 6in1 Cavitation machine addresses four of the six, specifically  numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4

How does one machine do so much?


The 6 in 1 Cavitation machine platform houses FOUR technologies 

  1. Ultrasound fat cavitation
  2. Vacuum technology
  3. Radio frequency (RF) skin tightening
  4. Lipo Laser (LED paddle technology)

These four technologies form a solid foundation for your body contouring businesses.

Why it makes sense to launch your body contouring business with the 6 in 1 Cavitation machine

  • It’s cost effective.  You can invest in just one machine to treat multiple body concerns.  You won’t need three separate machines for fat reduction, skin tightening and cellulite smoothing.
  • It’s affordable.  You can purchase your 6 in 1 machine for around $500.
  • It’s compact enough to move from room to room.  We keep our 6 in 1 machines on a rolling cart for scheduling flexibility.
  • It’s a reliable workhorse of a machine.  We keep our 6 in 1 Cavitation machines busy for much of every day in our medspa.
  • It’s been proven safe and effective.  Repeated studies have shown that the non-invasive technologies contained in the 6 in 1 machine -  ultrasound fat cavitation, radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening, vacuum and lipo laser (LED) are both safe and effective.  


How do you choose which 6 in 1 Cavitation machine to purchase?

  • You may be overwhelmed when you search for a  6 in 1 Cavitation machine to purchase. 
  • The machine is so popular, tons of manufacturers offer their version…so there are many (seemingly identical) machines from which to choose.
  • That’s why we made a pick for you!

Here are the steps to take!


Use these steps to launch your body contouring business with the 6 in 1 Cavitation machine


Use your current database of clients to launch.  Do not spend on advertising...yet.  

You have a current database of clients, most of whom likely have body contouring needs.  Focus on your existing customers.  They know you, trust you and will be so excited that you can soon help them with their body contouring needs.



Launch your body contouring business with your existing client’s most common body concern

First determine the biggest body concern held by your current clients.  Perhaps you already know the answer from your conversations with them.  But if you don’t or if you want to know more, then you simply need to ask them.



  • Send out email surveys
  • And/or send text surveys


Limit your survey questions to the body issues you can treat with the 6 in 1 machine:

  • Unwanted Fat - do they want to reduce, shape and sculpt?
  • Loose (flaccid) Skin - would they like to firm, tighten and smooth?
  • Cellulite - are they wanting to minimize and smooth?
  • Stretch Marks  - do they want to minimize, reduce, and smooth?



Get your existing clients excited with your solution to their top body concern

Keep this in mind:  your body contouring treatments solve a problem that your clients cannot solve on their own.  


So focus on your client’s #1 body contouring issue, i.e. fat reduction, skin tightening, etc.

Provide education 

⇨  About the body issue, i.e. why abdominal fat is hard to lose on your own

⇨  About the treatment, i.e. how cavitation reduces fat 

⇨  About how they’ll feel when they have the treatment, i.e. they’ll look great in their jeans 


You can give them this helpful information via

  • Weekly Emails
  • Monthly Educational Events 
  • Website Content - on your services page and perhaps a page devoted to the body problem, i.e. unwanted fat


Continue with your efforts for a full month or even a quarter.


PRO TIP:  While focusing on one issue, you will not limit your treatments to your featured benefit.  While focusing on a single issue such as body fat, it’s expected that you will be helping clients with other needs such as skin tightening, etc.  



Follow by featuring a different body concern each month or quarter

Move on the body concern ranked second by your existing clients using the same steps as outlined in ‘C’ above.  

Then move on to the third and forth.



Get before/after photos, reviews and client testimonials as soon as possible

Your existing clients already love you and trust you.  As soon as possible after you make them happy by solving their body contouring problems, ask them for written reviews, video testimonials and permission to share their photos.


You’ll need this ‘social proof’ once you start to market to prospective clients as you will need to win their trust.

Final Thoughts


Launching your body contouring business is an exciting venture, and (1) choosing your ‘first’ machine and (2) getting your body contouring certification are both crucial for success.  


After two decades of owning and operating medspas, we can wholeheartedly recommend the 6 in 1 Cavitation machine as the ideal ‘first’ body contouring machine choice and The Body Contouring 6 in 1 Masterclass as the top choice for body contouring certification. 


Then once you’re ready to launch, follow the actionable steps we provided to maximize your success.
