Body Contouring

You may be at a healthy weight, yet still be frustrated by cellulite or stubborn areas of fat on the hips, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or under the chin and eyes. These problem areas are often linked to genetics.


The De Pieri Clinic has seen great results using the following treatment options:


Forma uses radio-frequency technology to provide optimal skin contraction in the deep layers of your skin, without under- or over-treating any one area. Radio-frequency energy will stimulate the formation of new collagen and improve skin elasticity for long-lasting firming and tightening. Forma is suitable for all skin types and is appropriate for individuals seeking a non-invasive and natural looking approach to improve skin tone and textural irregularities.


For body contouring, the lifting effect starts to be cumulative after the first 2-3 treatments, and final results are typically apparent after 3 months. Since we continually age, touch-up treatment are recommended every 6 months.


Fractora is a series of 3-6 fractional rejuvenation treatments, combining the use of microneedling and radio-frequency to reduce fat deposits and tighten skin. The needles of a hand-held device are placed into the skin, delivering radio frequency energy into the lower layers. The result is a reduction in skin laxity and sagging. 


We offer a combination of topical numbing cream, oral pain killers or injectable local anesthetic to make the treatment comforatable. Down time is usually 2-3 days to recover from minor swelling, redness and small visible marks from the microneedles.


Results can be seen three weeks after treatment and can continue to progressively improve for up to 6 months after treatment if a series is done. 




Carbossitherapy, or carboxytherapy, is a unique treatment widely used in Europe. It incorporates carbon dioxide gas injected under the skin to improve skin elasticity, smooth cellulite, soften scars and stretch marks. It also helps reduce fat tissue in spot areas. We use this in the treatment of fat pads under the eyes, “double chin,” as well as fat deposits and cellulite of the legs, buttocks and abdomen.


Mesotherapy is the injection of a plant fat compound to melt fat cells. The fat is eventually flushed away naturally by the body.


At The De Pieri Clinic, we have found a combination approach of mesotherapy and carbossitherapy to be especially effective in reducing stubborn fat deposits.


It can smooth the appearance of cellulite by breaking down the bonds which tether the skin and cause the dimpled appearance. This treatmentimproves blood flow and oxygen levels in the skin, to tighten and smooth its appearance.


There is no downtime to either mesotherapy or carbossitherapy. Typically 10 to 20 treatments, once per week, are required to achieve desired results. The number of treatments required varies based on severity of the issue being corrected and the location on the body.


The De Pieri Clinic is currently the only clinic offering carbossitherapy in the Okanagan.
