Non-Surgical Fat Reduction


Gone are the days when you had to undergo surgery in order to remove stubborn pockets of fat. These fat deposits have taken a long time to develop, and it’s not so easy to get rid of them with diet and exercise alone. Nowadays, there are many non-surgical fat reduction treatments and procedures available that are simple and non-invasive. Thanks to new technology, you can remove fat from your body by applying heat or cold to affect the fat cells in order to help your body eliminate them.

Many of us have small problem areas of fat that we want removed or areas of our body we want contoured and tightened. The newest non-invasive device for permanent fat reduction is @trusculpt_cutera and our patients love this treatment. ⁣ ⁣ Small applicators are placed on customized locations of the body where you have problem areas, and after 15 mins there is almost an immediate contraction of skin and within 6 weeks there is a reduction in fat. For those with small problem areas who want a quick reduction, the more treatments you do, the more reduction you will get, without even changing your workout routine. We do recommend patients go exercise the day of the procedure to increase blood flow to the area and further enhance the outcome. Since Trusculpt uses radio-frequency energy, there is a degree of skin tightening that you get as well with each treatment. So this is a non-surgical way to obtain a slimmer, tighter figure or a contoured look with fewer fat pockets and tighter skin. ⁣ ⁣ While this treatment can be used on any skin or body type, it is most beneficial for patients who are already athletic or slim, but are looking to treat some problem area improvement that is harder to improve on their own with diet and exercise. This treatment requires multiple sessions with regular, continued maintenance to see visible results and also tightens skin at the same time. Combining this with #bodyFX, and @btlaesthetics vanquish can further improve the outcomes. In some instances we use injectable mesotherapy or #kybella to create non-surgical definition. ⁣ ⁣ Would you want to tighten up and sculpt your body with this 15-minute procedure? Comment below.

Freeze Away the Fat

The form of technology for destroying fat cells with freezing temperatures is known as cryolipolysis. The procedure is most commonly known as CoolSculpting®. Fat cells are unique in that they actually respond to cold temperatures, unlike cells found in other areas of the body. This is why, when cold temperatures are applied to skin containing fat deposits underneath, the fat cells freeze and the skin and other tissues are not affected.

An applicator is chosen that suits your curves and the dimensions of the area being treated. A special gel pad will be placed between your skin and the applicator to protect from cold temperatures. The temperature drops, cooling the bulge of tissue containing the fat deposit. The freezing cold destroys the fat cells, marking them as harmless foreign substances that are absorbed and removed from the body naturally.

Heat Away the Fat

Radiofrequency fat reduction is an option that uses heat to destroy fat deposits. With this non-surgical fat reduction treatment, the energy penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin containing the fat cells. The fat cells are destroyed and removed from the body after some time.

Enjoying the Benefits of Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

One of the major benefits of non-surgical fat reduction is the convenience factor. There is commonly minimal to no downtime necessary afterwards. Various treatments can be used in combination for optimal results. In fact, Dr. Jason Emer is a board-certified dermatologist specializing in body contouring #bodybyemer, and he is a renowned pioneer in non-surgical fat reduction as well as surgical body contouring methods.

For regular body maintenance, we have all of our patients include energy-based treatments to their diet and exercise routines. To get the best out of your workouts you can combine skin tightening and fat reduction to improve your overall results. A patients long-term maintenance plan consists of non-invasive fat reduction and skin tightening. @trusculpt_cutera is one of our patients favorite non-invasive, no-downtime procedure that takes 15 mins an area to reduce fat up to 20%. Many of my younger patients who already look good and want to enhance their body shape and contour or those who have small problem areas like to combine this treatment with @btl #vanquish to really enhance their #bodygoals. As opposed to other devices, this system can be customized and used on multiple parts of the body, including stomach, thighs, under the chin, and arms. This can be done without having to worry about the amount of fat in the area. Treatments can be every 6-12 weeks and further build on the initial improvement. Just like going to the dentist or har stylist regularly, you should include this as part of your routine to maintain a beautiful, contoured body along with your workout routines, diet, and hormone therapy.
