Do you have stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to dietary changes or exercise? You aren’t alone! Luckily, there are several options when it comes to achieving a more sculpted and slimmer silhouette. And the best news? These options don’t require risky surgical procedures. Body sculpting, which refers to treatments that destroy fat cells without the use of surgery, are procedures that work to target and kill fat in a number of ways.
Body sculpting utilizes techniques such as:
- Laser energy
- Penetrating heat
- Radiofrequency or ultrasound therapy
Body sculpting works by breaking down fat cells. Your body’s lymphatic system then manages to eliminate those dead fat cells naturally and easily. Additionally, with many of these practices, the treated areas are far less likely to accumulate as many fat cells in the future.
Reduce the Bulge
When it comes to body sculpting, there are many choices. It all comes down to what is most convenient for you, both in time and cost. The major advantage to all body sculpting treatments is that there is no anesthesia, little to no downtime, and most of them can be done during your lunch break. Areas that are most commonly treated are:
- Upper arms
What are Your Options?
Laser lipolysis (lipo) is a safe and effective way to remove stubborn fat deposits in order to achieve a reduction in size of waist, abdomen, and buttocks. Laser lipolysis machines emit low-level laser energy that stimulates fat cell membranes and changes their permeability, releasing unwanted fat and expelling it from the body. This process has no negative effect on the skin, blood vessels, or peripheral nerves, targeting only the fatty cells.
Treatment usually last 40 minutes from start to finish and is combined with a 10-minute session on a full-body vibration plate for maximum results. After each laser lipo sculpting treatment, it is essential that you burn a minimum of 350-400 calories in order to flush the fatty triglycerides out of your system. The full-body vibration plate is the equivalent to 30 minutes of cardio and assists in the breakdown of cellulite as well all over the body. This will increase the effectiveness of your treatments, bringing you more rapid and dramatic results.
Frequency of this treatment depends on your goals. For optimal results it is recommended to do a session two to three times a week. Allow your body a day in between treatments to eliminate the fat and toxins released during laser lipolysis.
Cryo-Sculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die off. Think of it like putting an ice cube against bare skin or numbing an area with a cold compress. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving you feeling tighter and more sculpted. The reduction in fat cells in the treated area provides noticeable and lasting results to help you look and feel your best.
Cryo-Sculpting is the only scientifically proven and FDA-approved procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet and exercise-resistant fat. Results from Cryo-Sculpting are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
Treatment usually lasts about an hour from start to finish and are combined with a 10-minute session on a full-body vibration plate for maximum results. Like laser lipo, it is essential that you flush the fatty triglycerides out of your system. Results may be seen as soon as the first week, but the best results can continue after two months, with an overall reduction in fat of 20% to 25% in a treated area. Your body will continue to reduce and eliminate fat as well as produce the hormones needed to firm loose skin, which is why it is also highly recommended to wear body compression clothing for several weeks following the procedure.
