Though we dream of making subtle changes in our bodies in order to feel our best both inside and out, some of the transformative techniques out there are a little intimidating. Taking the step to undergo invasive procedures that involve recovery time, anesthesia, scars, etc., can feel overwhelming. But what if there was a way to get results without the bodily trauma? What if there were minimally, or even non, invasive treatments that could still sculpt your body, giving you the final bit of confidence you’ve always wanted? Well, there are!
Laser lipolysis, cryolipolysis, and radiofrequency treatments are three body sculpting procedures that provide enviable results with less downtime and injury. Removing willful fat and cellulite and tightening skin, these treatments help you to define and firm your body. Learn more about the processes here, and decide for yourself what is right for you!
We’re sure you’ve heard of liposuction, a procedure in which a doctor physically manipulates a cannula to literally suck the fat from just beneath your skin. But have you heard of laser lipolysis?
With laser lipolysis (Smartlipo®), a laser is used to heat the fat, softening/liquefying it, so it is easier to remove. The addition of the laser allows for the incision to be smaller, which means less bruising and a quicker recovery time. In addition, the heat from the laser helps the skin to tighten.
Laser lipo is an outpatient treatment, with only a local anesthetic, that should see you back to normal activity within a few days. And as for results, well, those should be evident as soon as the swelling has gone down, with continued improvement over 3–6 months.
Where laser lipolysis utilizes the heat of lasers, cryolipolysis, on the other hand, utilizes freezing temperatures. Fat is more susceptible to cold than other tissues and organs. Cryolipolyisis (CoolSculpting®) applies extremely low temperatures to areas of your body where you have stubborn fat pockets and while your fat is crystallizing, the rest of your body is unphased. When the treatment is done, your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells, for good.
Cryolipolyisis is completely non-invasive, so recovery is practically unnecessary. However, the results, though overall very satisfying, take a few weeks to months to become evident.
Radiofrequency Body Treatments
To further contour your body and look your absolute best, radiofrequency waves can be used to firm and smooth your skin. An implement like the NuEra® emits radiofrequency waves from electrodes to gently heat skin so that collagen contracts and new collagen is produced. This completely noninvasive treatment temporarily improves the appearance of cellulite and skin laxity.
There is absolutely no downtime or pain. Results can be noted after only one treatment. An initial treatment schedule will be designed to get you the contouring you are looking for, and then a maintenance treatment schedule will keep you on track. This is an excellent supplement for fat-reducing treatments as it tightens and smooths skin.
