Why EON is the Future of Body Contouring

Young Man and Woman Enjoying the Denver outdoors

You eat healthy, for the most part, and exercise a few times a week. But you’re busy, and you still can’t seem to lose that “pooch” that hangs over your waistline. It’s 2022, so shouldn’t there be a technology that makes it easy to get the flat abdomen you crave?

Enter: EON laser body contouring. With EON, you can finally melt away your stubborn belly fat and love handles, highlighting your natural contours without surgery, needles, or downtime. Below, we’re explaining why we think EON is the future of non-surgical body contouring.

First, let’s examine the science behind abdominal fat.

What causes abdominal fat?

The abdomen is one of the main areas people gain fat. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most difficult areas to get rid of it. Abdominal fat can accumulate due to a variety of factors ranging from pregnancy, childbirth, hormone changes, genetics, stress, a sedentary lifestyle, and poor diet. Even men and women who are otherwise quite fit and healthy may struggle with belly fat.

This fat can place undue strain on the body, resulting in a host of health problems including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and shortness of breath. It can also make working out overly difficult and can obscure results from abdominal exercises. Thankfully, EON is an easy, effective, and non-invasive way to remove excess belly fat and sculpt the abdomen.

How does EON body contouring work?

EON uses a 1064nm wavelength laser to deliver thermal energy to the abdomen, effectively destroying fat cells below the skin’s surface. After treatment, your body will naturally eliminate the dead fat cells through your lymphatic system. EON treatments are 100% touch-free, thanks to the device’s robotic arm that scans your abdominal topography to provide personalized treatment.

EON treatments are 100% touch-free, delivering consistent results that are fully customized to your body.

Why choose Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO for EON?

Lone Tree plastic surgeon Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO not only holds the highest credentials in the field of aesthetics, but has also been closely involved in launching EON across the U.S. He works with Dominion Aesthetic Technologies, maker of EON, in a key advisory role to continue improving the technology’s outcomes. Dr. Buford is a thought leader in advancing aesthetic technology, and he is proud to endorse this touch-free body contouring tool for meeting patients’ needs more effectively and efficiently.

Dr. Buford also serves as an advisor to Octane, a company that he advised through a successful Shark Tank proposal and whose mission is to promote ground-breaking medical technology. From early on, Dr. Buford saw how they stood above other companies in the market, and partnered with them in order to improve the aesthetics market. He also spearheaded the Commercial Launch Advisory Board to include numerous plastic surgeons and experienced aesthetic professionals in his mission. This group helped develop a platform for this product because Dr. Buford saw the value in their technology.

Why is EON the future of body contouring?

EON is the first completely automated body contouring technology. Because it doesn’t rely on manual applicators, the device’s robotic arm never touches your body when delivering treatments. Once you try EON, we’re confident you’ll agree it is the future of body contouring, as its touchless treatments are both safer and more effective than other non-surgical fat reduction devices currently available.

Which areas can EON treat?

EON is currently FDA-cleared to treat the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, and the flanks (love handles).

How much weight can I lose with EON?

On average, a single EON session provides a 21.6% reduction in abdominal fat, but this does not help you lose weight, per se. While this fat sculpting procedure can have a big impact on the appearance of your abdomen, the actual weight loss is minimal because of the targeted nature of the treatment: remember, you will only be losing fat in one small area, versus achieving overall weight loss across the entire body.

Instead of viewing EON as a weight-loss solution, think of it as a complement to a normal diet and exercise routine to help people with a BMI of 30 or less eliminate stubborn fat deposits along their abdomen.

EON is designed to complement your diet and exercise routine to help you reduce stubborn abdominal fat.

How many EON treatments will I need?

While many patients are satisfied with a single EON treatment, others choose to schedule repeat appointments for additional contouring. After your EON treatment, you will continue to lose fat for up to 12 weeks, at which point your results should be fully visible. EON treatments take less than an hour on average, meaning you can easily fit them in on a lunch break.

Are EON results permanent?

EON results will last for as long as you maintain a stable weight, since EON effectively destroys the fat cells in a treated area. You will still be able to gain weight in other areas of your body, however, so EON should not be used as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.

EON vs. other body contouring technologies

Non-surgical body contouring is one of the fastest-growing aesthetic procedures, with over 357,900 treatments performed in 2020 alone. To meet this demand, dozens of non-invasive fat reduction devices have entered the market; but with so many options to choose from, what makes EON stand out? Here are a few advantages EON holds over other body contouring devices:

  • EON’s automated technology delivers consistent results that are fully customized to your body.
  • EON reaches higher temperatures in targeted fat cells, eliminating more fat than other non-invasive fat reduction treatments. At the same time, EON’s air-cooling system and temperature monitoring help ensure that the skin’s surface never rises above 39.5°C (a comfortable 103 degrees, similar to the temperature of a hot tub).
  • EON treatment is more comfortable than heat- or cold-based systems that adhere to the skin via applicators. (On average, patients scored EON 2.5 out of 11 on a pain scale.)
  • EON’s touchless technology eliminates the potential for paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, a.k.a. the “stick of butter” effect associated with certain applicator-based cryolipolysis body contouring devices.
