Non-Surgical Adipose Tissue Reduction

Non-surgical adipose tissue reduction offers an alternative to liposuction for fat reduction. While traditional surgical techniques may be effective at eliminating unwanted fat and cellulite deposits, they come with risks such as infection or internal damage that require postoperative recovery time and can have potential negative side effects that come with surgery. Non-invasive body contouring treatments have become popular for those looking for results without incurring the potential risks. They have become a great solution for people fearful of surgery who do not yet meet weight loss milestones where more invasive procedures would provide optimal benefits.

Noninvasive body shaping techniques such as laser, radiofrequency and cryolipolysis (cryolipolysis) involve placing devices over targeted areas to send heat or cold energy directly into the skin without harming surrounding tissues. When these cells absorb this energy they will break down fat cells, leading to their elimination via lymphatic system and hopefully never reappearing in treated areas.

CoolSculpting is one of the most widely-used noninvasive body shaping techniques, working by targeting and eliminating stubborn fat cells from specific problem areas. This FDA-cleared procedure has been clinically shown to reduce fat in areas like abdomen, flanks and thighs.

During this procedure, a special applicator is applied over the target area in order to deliver controlled cooling (approximately 4 degC or 39 degF) directly onto fat cells beneath the skin. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than other cells in our bodies and, when exposed to this cold temperature, begin disintegrating and dying off naturally through natural processes – thus restoring natural shape to your body.

Zerona is an increasingly popular solution for anyone seeking to slim their figure and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. Utilizing laser and radiofrequency technology, Zerona targets stubborn fat pockets located throughout the stomach, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, buttocks, and buttocks – producing an improved waistline contour with reduced cellulite appearance. Ideal candidates include those who are at a healthy body weight but are struggling with losing fat in specific areas despite diet and exercise alone.

Ultrashape, another noninvasive option, uses ultrasound and radiofrequency technology to break down fat cells in targeted areas. Treatment takes typically 30- 60 minutes with little downtime afterward. This noninvasive option is most suitable for those in good overall health who still have pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise alone. When consulting, be sure to ask how many sessions will be required and the expected length of results, plus any maintenance treatments necessary in the future to keep results stable.
