Summer Bodies are Made in the Spring

Summer is only a few months away! If you’ve been spending more time working out and taking better care of yourself through the pandemic, congratulations! But no matter how many crunches you do, and how many minutes you spend on the treadmill, you still have little pockets of fat and areas of loose skin. A myriad of factors can contribute to stubborn areas of fat and sagging skin or cellulite. Age, gender, location of the fat. Most patients want to remove fat in the abdomen, thighs, arms, love handles, and under the chin. Loose skin of the abdomen and thighs is often reported as bothersome to patients. Luckily, there are treatments to help tighten and smooth skin as well as remove those small, stubborn fat pockets.

Tighten Loose Skin

Non-invasive treatments offer muscle toning, fat reduction, and skin tightening with no downtime. Treatments are done in a series of several treatments performed weekly or monthly. These treatments can safely melt or freeze fat which the body will naturally process out. Radiofrequency deep tissue heating helps tighten loose skin and can smooth the appearance of cellulite. It may also help melt small areas of fat. Muscle toning can be achieved with high intensity focused electromagnetic energy, which causes muscle contraction at an intensity that can’t be achieved by regular workouts- like doing 10,000 crunches in 30 minutes. Imagine that!

Minimally invasive treatments like laser liposuction or laser skin tightening can provide more dramatic but natural results than non-invasive treatments. Treatment is done in the office under comfortable local anesthesia, so it does not have the potential risks of general anesthesia. These treatments remove fat and use stronger laser technology underneath the skin for tightening. Both fat removal and laser tightening can be done at the same time. There is very little downtime with these treatments, so you will be back to a normal routine in a matter of days.

What is important to remember with both non-invasive and minimally invasive treatment is that results do not happen overnight. It can take several months to see the full results of the treatment. It takes the body time to process out melted or frozen fat cells as well as tighten and smooth skin. Each patient responds to the treatments differently, so results are dependent on the patient –as well as how well results are maintained at home with proper diet and exercise. You don’t want to initially achieve great results and then lose them with a bad diet!
