Minimally Invasive Fat Disruption Technologies

Minimally invasive fat disruption

When it comes to losing those stubborn areas that defy diet and exercise, but aren’t willing to undergo liposuction surgery, non-invasive fat disruption technologies like radiofrequency and fat freezing may provide you with an effective solution without needing scalpels or lengthy recovery periods.

These alternatives to surgery tend to be less invasive with significantly reduced risks, yet may require multiple sessions and don’t deliver instantaneous results. When selecting one of these methods for you, be sure to carefully evaluate your goals, medical fitness and needs first before making your choice.

Fat disruption technologies are ideal for individuals who have pockets of stubborn fat that have proved hard to shift, yet are otherwise healthy and within the target weight range for their body type. Furthermore, these devices may help refine figures post-weight loss with body contouring treatments such as post-weight loss body sculpting.

How do these treatments work? These technologies target the subcutaneous fat layer just beneath your skin. Heat energy from laser or radiofrequency penetrates your skin, disrupting fat cell structures over time until their degeneration allows your body to eliminate them on its own.

SculpSure laser treatment employs a specific wavelength to heat fatty tissues to the point of their dismantlement while an ongoing cooling mechanism prevents any burning or skin damage to prevent burn-off or discomfort for users. Although FDA-cleared for abdomen and flank use, other areas can also benefit from its application.

Radiofrequency treatment is another popular technology, providing gentle but non-invasive thermal energy directly into the treatment area. It is safe for use on several parts of the body including abdominal area, brachial rolls, lumbar rolls, hip rolls/flanks and inner thighs as well as arms and legs. Although these non-invasive procedures don’t produce dramatic results like surgical liposuction does, their results can still be substantial and more quickly achieved than traditional methods.
