Are There Non-Surgical Ways of Reducing Excess Fat?

After months of dieting and exercising you have finally achieved your goal weight. Typically, you would be celebrating such an accomplishment, but, unfortunately, it’s very common to get near your goal weight, but still to be carrying around stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite. Don’t let that stubborn fat dampen your spirits and ruin your celebration of reaching your fitness goals! There are some great non-surgical ways to reduce that excess fat! Let’s explore CoolSculpting, Body FX, Lipolysis, and VelaShape…four of our favorite fat-reducing treatments.


What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical way to freeze away that fatPeople no longer need to resort to invasive surgeries with long recovery times to get the look they desire because this incredible technology crystallizes fat cells which are then flushed away over time by the body’s own metabolic processes. A typical treatment lasts about one hour per treatment area. During the treatment, a technician will place a gel pad over the area being treated to act as a barrier between your body and the CoolSculpting device. Next, the device will be cooled to its appropriate temperature and placed on the gel pad. The fat underneath the pad freezes, but not any of the surrounding organs, nerves or tissue since they freeze at a much lower temperature than the fat cells. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they will die and be consumed by regular cells. Through the body’s natural processes, the dead cells are eliminated from the body.

There is no downtime with CoolSculpting treatments so patients can schedule their visits and immediately go about their daily routines. Some patients have reported redness, slight tenderness, and swelling at the treatment site, but this is completely normal and disappears after about two weeks.

What Is Body FX?

Body FX is a non-invasive, long-lasting treatment designed for fat reduction, cellulite reduction, and body-sculpting. Body FX uses radiofrequency energy to deliver heat to the skin and underlying fat, along with suction from negative pressure to cause fat to contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses work together to shape the body and smooth out unwanted pockets of fat. The heat also stimulates collagen production which gives lasting smoothing results for your skin. Most patients will receive weekly sessions for up to 8 weeks, depending on their desired results. Immediately after the first treatment, patients report softer and smoother feeling skin. During the first week, there will be improvements in the appearance of cellulite. Noticeable improvements will occur gradually after the first few treatments and tightening effects are usually visible within 6-12 months

Since the procedure is non-invasive and causes no discomfort, patients can return to their normal routines immediately after their treatment. Many patients report having redness and a warm sensation that subsides within a few hours.

What Is VelaShape?

VelaShape is an anti-cellulite treatment that uses bi-polar radiofrequency, infrared light energy, plus vacuum and mechanical massage to deploy targeted heat on the treatment area. This combination of energies speeds the metabolism of stored energyincreases lymphatic drainage, and reduces the size of fat cells. As a result, the skin’s surface smoothes and cellulite is reducedTreatments take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes and there is no downtime. Results will appear in 4 to 8 weeks and some patients will require more than one treatment to achieve desired results.

What Is Lipolysis?

Lipolysis is a body contouring, fat spot removal procedure.  Many people use this treatment to get rid of fat from their double chin, chest, back, love handles, and tummy. A typical treatment takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the area that’s being treated as well as the number of areas being treated. After you have a lipolysis treatment your skin will feel tighter because more collagen will begin to be produced giving a smoother and tighter feel to your skin. Patients can immediately return to their daily schedules after a lipolysis treatment.
