Dr. Neil Sadick shows our two editors how they can eliminate fat and minimize acne scars without surgery!

If your goal is to blast some belly bulge and go Spanx-free for a special event, you may want to try the SculpSure body contouring procedure.

WHAT IT DOES: Using a laser, the in-office device melts fat by dissolving pesky fat cells so that they don’t come back.

PROS: There’s no surgery required. The treatment only takes 25 minutes and you only need one or two.

CONS: It will be at least 6 to 12 weeks before you can see results.

COST: Price varies by location, but on average it’s $600 to treat a small area, such as a patch of skin on your leg, and $1,200 for a larger area like your entire abdomen.

On those truly festive occasions, the last thing you want is for bad skin to distract from your stunning ensemble, which is why our editor with years-old acne scars tried the EndyMed 3DEEP.

WHAT IT DOES: This noninvasive process uses radio frequency energy to stimulate and boost the body’s natural collagen, which can improve and even the skin.

PROS: There’s little to no downtime. Depending on the level of smoothness you want to achieve or how deep your scars are, you’ll need three to eight treatments.

CONS: Some people may experience mild discomfort.

COST: The average price is $500 to $600 per visit, but discounts are possible.
