Muscle Toning Q & A

What is muscle toning?

Muscle toning is a type of treatment that reduces small areas of fat in various parts of your body. Pockets of body fat can accumulate and remain in place even after you lose a significant amount of weight. Even if you’ve always been at your ideal weight, you might have a few areas you’d like to target with some sculpting or contouring. These treatments also help build muscle. 

With noninvasive body sculpting treatments at Leva Medical, you can reduce some of the body fat on your:


  • Shoulders and arms
  • Thighs
  • Glutes
  • Abdomen

These treatments will not eliminate an excessive amount of body fat but rather target smaller areas of fat that tend to be difficult to lose with diet and exercise alone. The treatments offer extra definition in targeted areas and can even give a slight lift to your buttocks.

How does muscle toning work?

Leva Medical offers noninvasive muscle toning treatments. During the treatment, laser energy causes intense muscle contractions in targeted areas. Those contractions cause the release of epinephrine, a hormone that triggers a cause-and-effect process leading to the dysfunction and death of fat cells.

Over a few weeks after each muscle toning treatment, your body safely flushes out the fat through its lymphatic system. The result is a more visible and defined muscle tone and less body fat in the areas you target.

Each body sculpting treatment at Leva Medical lasts for around 30 minutes per targeted area. In most cases, your provider recommends four body sculpting sessions over a two week period, spaced about three days apart.

Am I a good candidate for muscle toning?

Your providers at Leva Medical welcome you in for a treatment consultation to see if you’re a good candidate for muscle toning. They review your medical history and discuss your goals for treatment.

To be a candidate for muscle toning, you should be at or near your ideal weight and relatively fit. The laser treatment won’t cause significant weight loss and is instead intended to target minimal areas of fat while building muscle tone.
