Customize Your Contours Without Surgery
Do you work hard at the gym and watch what you eat only to find that you are not getting the definition you want? Many people struggle with the same problems and may have turned to cosmetic surgery to get the results they desired. Now, however, there are new technologies available that can give you the chiseled look you want without surgery. These treatments can be used by both men and women to refine their silhouettes and reach their aesthetic goals.
Freeze the Fat
If you want to get rid of stubborn fat deposits, such as love handles or “bat wings” on your upper arms, then CoolSculpting® may be a great option for you. This treatment uses super-cooling technology to freeze fat cells in areas of the body that are hard to target with diet and exercise.
The CoolSculpting® applicator is applied to the surface of the treatment site and delivers targeted cooling. This process freezes the fat cells, killing them. They are then naturally eliminated by your body. There are no incisions needed and no downtime. There may be some slight discomfort at the start of your treatment, but this will dissipate quickly as the area becomes numb. Areas that can be treated include:
- Submental fat (double chin)
- Hips and thighs
- Bra rolls
CoolSculpting® is not meant for weight loss but rather for “touching up” certain areas of the body. While some patients may see results after one session, multiple treatments are typically recommended.
Lose Fat and Gain Muscle
If you prefer to gain more muscle definition as well as losing fat, Emsculpt® may be a better choice. Certain regions of the body—particularly the abs and buttocks—can be hard to define, even with rigorous workouts. Emsculpt® uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM®) technology, which causes supramaximal muscle contractions in the target areas. This means that the muscles contract at a rate that is impossible with voluntary contractions (exercise). The increase in muscle also causes the body to burn fat faster.
There is no surgery, no prep or downtime, and after treatment, most patients report feeling as if they have had an intense workout.
Sculpt Your Booty
It is obvious that today a round, perky behind is definitely “en vogue”. However, squats or other exercises are sometimes not enough. Emsculpt® for the buttocks can give you the curves you have been working for. You will fill out your clothing better and feel more comfortable in shorts, skirts, and bathing suits.
The abdomen can be even more challenging to tone, as fat tends to accumulate there. Emsculpt® can give you the firm, sculpted abs you want without thousands of crunches. You may even discover that your muscles feel stronger after your Emsculpt® sessions.
Most patients see results very soon after Emsculpt®, and improvement will continue to develop for the next several weeks. An average of four sessions is typical, and maintenance treatments may be recommended as well.
Emsculpt® and CoolSculpting® can provide beautiful results without incisions, general anesthesia, or extensive downtime. However, you will still need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to prolong your results.
