Are you looking to remove stubborn fat from those hard-to-treat areas? Sometimes, you can do all the right things, such as eating right and exercising, but it still isn’t enough to achieve your desired aesthetic. If you are looking for a sculpting treatment for your body, then read on to learn about two non-surgical fat reduction options that may be a good fit for you.
Coolsculpting is a practice that was first introduced in the early 2000s by Zeltiq and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2012. Coolsculpting uses extremely cold temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells in problem areas. Over time, these fat cells are absorbed and expelled from your body. Possible side effects of coolscupting are redness, swelling, itching, numbness and loss of sensation for up to a month in the area that was treated. This is an effective method to remove fat in stubborn areas. However, coolsculpting is only approved to treat five areas, and the best results tend to be achieved on areas of excess fat that are closest to the skin, such as love handles. Results take a couple of weeks to fully manifest.
Lipo cavitation was developed as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Lipo cavitation is an FDA-approved, non-surgical, fat-reduction option that uses ultrasound to break up fat under the skin. The fat is dissolved, absorbed into the body and expelled naturally. The procedure is simple in regards to application. A gel is applied to the skin to act as a conduit. The ultrasonic waves are calibrated to a frequency that only treats fat, so, unlike liposuction, there is no risk of damaging other elements within the body. Each session lasts about 30 minutes to an hour, and results can be seen almost right away. An added benefit of lipo cavitation is that there are no FDA limits to where you can use it on the body. The most common feedback, besides almost instant results, is that lipo cavitation is more comfortable than coolsculpting. The smaller price tag doesn’t hurt either.
Please, only get treatments from a professional who is willing to give you a thorough consultation beforehand so that you are able to make an educated decision as to which option is best for you. Whichever treatment you choose to target stubborn fat, remember that results will vary, and don’t forget to love yourself and your body.
