Most men and women have stubborn deposits of fat in certain trouble areas. Up until fairly recently, the only way to remove this fat was by undergoing some type of surgical procedure, such as liposuction. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. Non-surgical body contouring procedures exist, and they could work for you!
Laser-Based Fat Removal
Lipolysis takes place when a fat cell becomes so damaged that it can no longer support itself. This naturally occurs when your body is in need of a source of energy and it metabolizes fatty tissue. Over the years, researchers have discovered that they can manually trigger lipolysis by quickly increasing the internal temperature of fat cells. Unlike the surrounding soft tissue, the fat cells fall apart after being kept at a specific temperature for a set amount of time.
This is the science behind non-surgical body contouring via WarmSculpting with SculpSure® 2.0. During the appointment, we use a handheld device to direct pulses of laser energy at the deposits of fat that you would like to get rid of. In the weeks following the treatment, your body is going to metabolize and expel the fatty tissue just as if you were burning the calories through natural processes.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
One of the most enticing aspects of this non-surgical body contouring procedure is the fact that it can be carried out almost anywhere on the body. An invasive procedure such as liposuction isn’t always a good option for sensitive areas, such as the neck. The most common treatment site is the abdomen, but we can also help you remove fat in other areas, such as the flanks, back, thighs, and arms.
The Ideal Candidate
Although non-surgical body contouring does not involve surgery, you should still have realistic expectations regarding the procedure and the results. This isn’t a replacement for healthy lifestyle habits, such as exercising and sticking to a healthy diet. It is an ideal option for patients who are struggling with localized pockets of fat that aren’t responding to a healthy lifestyle.
