What is Body Sculpting?
In the past few years, body sculpting treatments have become so advanced and effective that patients no longer have to rely on body contouring surgery or liposuction to get the slim figure they want. With non-invasive fat reduction devices, such as CoolSculpting and laser liposuction, patients can safely lose up to three inches around their waistlines and not have to take any time off from work. These body contouring devices typically take very little time to treat specific areas of the body and cause little to no side effects, such as minor bruising, swelling, or redness, however, the side effects are temporary and do no typically interfere with the patients’ daily activities. It is possible to go in for a contouring session and return to work in the same day. The most popular and effective types of body sculpting treatments include the following:
Using cryolipolysis, the CoolSculpting technology safe and effectively freezes fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue and muscle untouched. The fat cells are cooled down to a temperature that kills them, allowing the body to gradually eliminate the cells from the treated area. This body shaping procedure successfully shrinks areas of unwanted, stubborn fat over a period of months, producing natural-looking results. CoolSculpting is FDA approved for use on the thighs, love handles, abdomen, and upper arms.
The first and only device FDA approved for treating loose skin around the neck and chin, Ultherapy is a breakthrough body sculpting option that helps restore and individual’s youth and natural beauty. Ultherapy helps smooth out turkey necks and jowls for more defined facial features. To learn more about Ultherapy, visit ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Similar to CoolSculpting, Vanquish is a body sculpting treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to heat and destroy fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissue and muscle. As the dead fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body, patients can enjoy gradual results without having to take time off of work or school. Vanquish body shaping does not require incisions, and therefore, there is no downtime necessary. Some patients may experience mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, or discomfort, but these generally dissipate within a few days.
