Body Contouring Teatments
Non-surgical body contouring includes fat reduction, cellulite smoothing and skin tightening
Non-invasive devices for fat reduction have become increasingly popular over the past decade. Although promising, the non-invasive procedures does not replace the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Non-surgical fat reduction is a minimally invasive treatment that break down fat cells in specific areas to reduce the size of subcutaneous fat pockets. Results can last as long as a patient maintains his or her weight. Cavitation reduces fat only not weight that’s why it is important to have realistic expectations about what results a non-surgical treatment can achieve. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results. May not be suitable for patients with significant amounts of fat to lose. Treatments will not significantly change a patient’s weight, and a healthy lifestyle and weight maintenance are essential to maintain results. Patient may lose 1 to 3 cm circumferential but won’t lose weight – only fat. You may feel a warm sensation during the procedure and hear a buzzing from the ultrasound machine. Treatments typically take between 40 minutes to an hour. Ultrasonic cavitation is frequently performed on the: stomach, hips, neck, upper arms, thigh areas. Common side effects include redness, bruising, headache. In some cases, the skin won’t absorb the fat evenly after it breaks down. Lumps, bumps, and valleys on your skin can appear after ultrasonic cavitation treatment. These skin irregularities may be resolved by follow up treatments. Pain and bruising are usually minimal. You’ll be instructed to hydrate as much as possible after the procedure to help your body flush the fatty cells through your lymphatic system. But don’t expect to see results right away, it takes time for your body to break down and dissolve the fat cells that have been dislodged. Most candidates for this treatment see their final result within 6 to 12 weeks. Results are permanent, as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise. If you have a sedentary lifestyle, fat deposits may return to areas that have been treated.
Injection lipolysis is a minimal invasive procedure used for targeted fat reduction which can’t be eliminated by workout and a healthy diet.
Lipolysis contain phosphatidylcholine as main agent, obtained from a variety of natural sources like soybeans or egg yolk. Lipolysis injections may remove stubborn localized fat without the need of surgery. It works by disrupting the fat cell wall making it release its lipid content within. This breaks down the fat cells which will be eliminated from the body through natural processes.
Treatment can be used almost anywhere in the body and is most popular in reducing the double chin fat. After the injections patient will experience temporary itching, redness, swelling and bruises. It will take few sessions according to each case to achieve results
An advanced combination of Radio Frequency and vacuum that offers an effective body and face treatment targeting skin tightening for aging and lax skin, reduction of stretchmarks, cellulite reduction, circumferential reduction. Using RF technology the heat is gradually delivered to multiple layers of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. This process strengthen the dermis against the invasion of adipocytes and stimulates metabolic breakdown of fat cells, at the same time enhancing blood circulation to the treated area. Skin tightening treatment applies bi-polar RF energy to heat the dermis strengthening the tissue fibers and dermal collagen by stimulating fibroblast in the dermis.
HIFU High Intensity Ultrasound
HIFU works by focusing high-intensity ultrasonic waves at the level of the subcutaneous adipose tissue, causing focal coagulative necrosis with contraction and thickening of adjacent collagen bundles while sparing the overlying tissue. Several studies reveal the safety and efficacy of HIFU for fat reduction in the abdomen and flanks. These studies show a consistent reduction in the abdominal circumference of at least 2 cm after a single treatment. Adverse events are limited to mild, transient procedural and postprocedural discomfort, erythema, bruising, and edema. HIFU is a safe and effective method for focal fat reduction.
