Body Contouring for Fat Reduction
It’s rare to find someone who doesn’t want at least one area of their body to appear more toned. Regardless of diet and fitness level, these stubborn fat spots never seem to disappear. There are now safe, painless, and effective options for removing fat and improving the contours of the body, that does not require surgery or anesthesia. Body toning treatments, such as TruSculpt and CoolSculpting, tighten, tone and contour areas of the body that have not responded adequately to diet and exercise. Since these are non-invasive treatments, which work by delivering unique types of energy to the skin, there are no surgical scars to worry about hiding after the treatment. With all of these treatments, you are back to work and regular activities the next day.
Cosmetic Body Treatments
Non-surgical body and facial tightening and contouring treatments are the exciting treatments of the present and future. There is no longer a need to jump to plastic surgery for tightening the neck and jowls, or to live at the gym to get rid of excess fat in the abdomen. These issues can now be addressed in the dermatologist’s office, with non-invasive treatments. Unlike surgical procedures, there is no downtime following these in-office treatments. Cosmetic body treatments are exciting options for any person who wants to contour, tighten, or improve the state of their body.
CoolSculpting for Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting uses a non-invasive handpiece to suction onto the area of the body being treated. This hand piece remains in place throughout the entire one hour treatment. During this time, the temperature of the treated area is reduced to a level at which fat cells begin to be broken down; this process is referred to as cryolipolysis. As fat cells are broken down, the body’s own immune system flushes them away from the site. The result is a significant decrease in the fat cells at the treated area, which can smooth out fat bulges and improve the appearance of your body by fat reduction.
The results are not seen immediately, but 2-4 months following a single treatment, the maximum result can be appreciated. Fat reduction with CoolSculpting can be performed on many areas of the body. During your initial consultation, we will fit the applicator to the area of the body you wish to treat. Through this process, we can determine if this treatment will be a good treatment for reducing the collection of fat that is noticeable to you. The most common areas for fat reduction with CoolSculpting are the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, love handles (above the hips), and bra bulge on the upper back.
Treating Fat Non-Surgically with TruSculpt
TruSculpt is an exciting non-invasive body contouring treatment that delivers fat removal without surgery. Rather than using invasive techniques, TruSculpt utilizes radiofrequency energy, which goes through the skin to break down areas of excessive fat cells in the body. The innovative technology also tightens and contours the overlying skin, to improve the appearance of the body in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
TruSculpt uses radiofrequency energy for fat removal. This radiofrequency energy is targeted at the skin overlying areas of excess fat collections. In order to break up the fat cells in these areas, the radiofrequency energy goes through the skin to head the underlying fat tissue. By targeting the fat tissue specifically, the energy does not affect other underlying tissues of the body. The fat cells that are targeted are stimulated to undergo apoptosis, which means they ‘self-destruct’ and are flushed from the body via the body’s own immune system. The skin’s surface remains intact during this process.
