Over the past decade, non-invasive body contouring treatments and fat reduction have become the hottest trends in the medical aesthetic industry. Non-surgical treatments are safer and involve little to no downtime in comparison to surgical procedures like liposuction. 

In this modern age, everyone wants to look their best, without having to resort to invasive surgery. That’s why the non-invasive body contouring market is seeing such rapid growth and advances in treatment technology. Many individuals are now becoming more interested in joining this flourishing branch of the beauty industry. If you too want to become a body contouring service provider then this simple roadmap is for you.

Step 1: Research

As with any new business venture, thorough research should be done. Check out the body contouring market in the state you live, and have a look at what your competition is doing. Have a look at which treatments are being offered and prices. Popular body contouring treatments include:

  • Cryolipolysis (fat freezing)
  • Ultrasonic cavitation (fat cavitation)
  • Radio frequency skin tightening and vacuum RF
  • Laser lipolysis (laser lipo)

Also, you need to research licensing and other regulations for body contouring businesses in the state. In the United States, some states may not allow individuals to provide certain body contouring services without having a proper license. However, for non-invasive body contouring, provided you have completed appropriate training, you are good to go.

Step 2: Complete relevant body contouring training

Whether you’re looking to start out from home, or you have an existing clinic, you still need to complete professional training. Keep in mind that an individual who has completed a body contouring training course to use the body contouring machines may also require additional licensing in order to legally provide treatments. 

Don’t worry if there are no training institutes in your area. Many schools now offer professional and well-structured body contouring training courses online.

Step 3: Purchase body contouring machines and equipment

After receiving your body contouring certification online, you will need to purchase the necessary machines and supplies. Now the question we often receive is: where can I purchase my body contouring machines from?

Well, there are many online stores and marketplaces online that make it very easy to source your equipment. Check out Alibaba, eBay, Amazon and AliExpress, they have a huge range of affordable machines.

You can also purchase the machines from local markets or suppliers. Just make sure that the machines are safe and functioning well, and comply with local regulations.
