Non-Invasive Fat Targeting

Non-invasive fat targeting refers to treatments that don’t involve surgery but instead focus on directly or indirectly targeting pockets of fat cells in problem areas like the belly, flanks or upper thighs which have proven resistant to diet and exercise alone. This approach may help achieve slimmer and toned results while at the same time protecting healthy tissues from damage caused by fat.

Cryolipolysis (fat freezing), laser fat removal or radiofrequency technology such as that used by truSculpt or Vanquish are all possible means to achieve this result, with typically only one or two treatments needed to produce results that last over a year.

Liposuction is an invasive fat reduction procedure in which surgeons make small incisions into targeted areas of the body and use special tools to break up and suction away excess fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise. It may produce dramatic results for those struggling to reduce stubborn pockets of fat that don’t budge from just dieting and exercise alone.

But as more people seek ways to reduce and shape areas of their bodies that are resistant to exercise or dieting alone, noninvasive technologies that reduce stubborn pockets of fat have seen a huge surge in popularity – experts continue to create new methods for doing just this.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery published a promising new way to safely eliminate unwanted fat pockets without surgical techniques. According to their research team, injection of physiological ice slurry was found to effectively destroy fat cells without harming nearby skin or muscle tissue – leading to long-lasting slimming results!

Researchers conducted this experiment on a group of pigs injected with an ice slurry injection and observed a 55% reduction in fat thickness at target areas within three to six weeks, without side effects or abnormalities in any individual pig.

While there are noninvasive options to help target stubborn fat spots, experts advise patients to first consult with an experienced board-certified dermatologist prior to undertaking any cosmetic procedure. This ensures they are an ideal candidate for their chosen procedure.

CoolSculpting, SculpSure or laser-lipolysis devices such as Vanquish or TruSculpt devices are some of the most popular treatments available for fat reduction. Other alternatives may include using skin smoothing laser treatments like ClearSkin Plus device or red light therapy – approved by FDA to treat stomach and flank areas; finally for buttock and thigh slimming purposes the TruSculpt system combines laser lipolysis and radio frequency energy to treat both layers at once for even greater results.
