Body Contouring


Minimally invasive body contouring in the Twin Cities: UltraShape, VelaShape, SmartLipo Triplex, and EndyMed for fat removal and reduction in cellulite.

Our body contouring options

Rejuvenation by Minnesota Women's Care now offers several different body contouring procedures in our office. All of the procedures are done in our new surgical procedure room. The cost and inconvenience of a hospital stay has been eliminated. General anesthesia is not needed. While everyone responds differently to procedures, we have found that the procedures we offer provide the desired results and a fast recovery. Once you have examined, Dr. Ashford can make a suggestion as to which procedure will work best for you and your particular needs. We offer:

UltraShape® Power

UltraShape® Power is the first and only FDA-cleared non-surgical procedure that uses pulsed, focused ultrasound for fat cell destruction. UltraShape Power painlessly and permanently destroys fat cells without harming surrounding skin, nerves, or blood vessels.

Unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape Power is painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment. All you’re left with is smooth, contoured results. So you can hit our office, then hit your yoga class in a cropped top on the same day. 

VelaShape® III

VelaShape uses a combination of technologies to change the appearance of your skin ... providing dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort. For women who have experienced a change to their skin's appearance over time – with a dimpled appearance showing up most often on the back of the thighs, abdomen, and buttocks – VelaShape provides a gradual smoothing of skin's surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite and a circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area. 

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours. 

SmartLipo Triplex

Smartlipo is the most widely accepted and clinically studied laser-assisted lipolysis system available today. It is a minimally invasive procedure, so it does not have the same risks and expense normally associated with lipo procedures. 


EndyMed technology provides FDA cleared 3DEEP technology – an innovative multisource RF technology that delivers controlled, focused RF energy deep into the skin, without any pain or risk, reactivating the skin's’ natural collagen production. By focusing RF energy deep within the dermis, 3DEEP stimulates collagen renewal without overheating the epidermis, reducing the opportunity for side effects and providing for a more comfortable treatment session. This non-invasive treatment has been used to tighten loose skin, particularly after weight loss. EndyMed provides effective treatments for body toning, tightening, and cellulite reduction. 


For some women, body contouring is not the first answer. Some of our patients have achieved the results they want with a medically-supervised diet first – such as our HCG Diet.

Why do women choose to have body contouring?

As a woman's healthcare facility - one that focuses on really listening to our patients - women often tell us they'd like to change certain aspects of their bodies. In spite of diet and exercise, they cannot always get the results they want. In this case, they may turn to body contouring to eliminate "problem" areas.

When women want to improve how they look, we are committed to providing the safest environment to discuss their concerns. If appropriate, we are also committed to providing access to the safest, most effective procedures available - those with the least amount of downtime. As with everything we do, rigorous medical study, research and training comes first.
