Localized Fat: Treatments for Fat Reduction 2022

Unwanted fat is a constant issue for many. We exercise and cut our meals to control our diets but do not get the desired results we want to achieve in terms of fat reduction. Surgery is not an optimal option for most of us as we do not want to deal with painful treatments and then deal with long recovery times. But thanks to modern technology, we have found multiple fat reduction solutions that are non-surgical and non-invasive. The stubborn fat pockets are a problem of the past with highly beneficial aesthetic procedures, including Cryolipolysis or CoolSculpting, EmSculpt, Body Hifu, and Ultrasonic Cavitation. These procedures target the fat cells and aim to reduce and remove fat accumulation from body areas such as the abdomen, thighs, back, upper arms, etc., without surgery. The major difference between traditional surgical methods and non-surgical body sculpting procedures is that non-surgical treatments do not include incisions, stitches, and anesthesia. 

Localized fat is relatively hard to lose. The fat accumulation is so intense that even exercising and diet control cannot make any visible difference. Modern-day men and women prefer having fitter bodies to match the pace of the ever-evolving world. But many do not want to choose surgery, even if it is a last resort unless they are clinically obese. These fat reduction procedures are not a solution to excess weight and obesity but are optimal for individuals who maintain a healthy BMI range and just want to eliminate stubborn fat deposits in certain body areas. This blog will explore the most popular fat reduction treatments that can help you get fit in 2022. 

Effective and Non-invasive Treatments 

2022 is when we finally managed to get past covid and lockdowns and have started getting back to our normal routines. Staying at home has also made us lazy, and we are guilty of neglecting exercise. So, if you are tired of exercising or simply want an easier solution for fat reduction, the following methods can help you get the body of your dreams with little to no downtime: 


CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis reduces fat pockets by targetting and dismantling fat cells present in the body using very low temperatures (4°C). This procedure exposes the fat cells to low temperatures that cause cellular death. The main aim is to damage the fatty tissue beyond repair, and once that happens, our body detects this cellular debris and absorbs it for the elimination process naturally. The procedure is safe and is FDA (The Food and Drug Administration) approved as a non-invasive fat reduction solution for people struggling with fat pockets near their healthy BMI (Body Mass Index) range. 

The safety of this treatment is guaranteed. You may ask why the low temperature does not cause any damage to our skin, muscles, and nerves present in our body. But for your assurance, I can simply state the fact that nerve, skin, and muscle tissue freezes at a much lower temperature than fat. Thus, it is far easier to dismantle fat deposits using cold temperatures through cool sculpting treatment. You can target up to 25% fat with the help of this treatment. The aspects that make it more beneficial than surgical and traditional fat reduction methods include its effectiveness, without any downtime. The procedure is also relatively quick and takes 35 to 40 minutes per session. 

There are minimal side effects, including bruising, mild redness, and swelling. But all of these disappear within a few hours after the treatment. Since there are no incisions involved in the treatment, it is a pain-free procedure, and the most a patient feels while undergoing it is mild discomfort. If a person does not gain much weight, the results are long-term and are easily manageable with a healthier lifestyle. 

Ultrasonic Cavitation 

Another non-surgical and non-invasive method that has gained a lot of attention in the aesthetic world is Ultrasonic Cavitation. So how does this procedure work? This treatment uses ultrasonic energy to dismantle fat deposits by liquifying them and breaking them apart. The ultrasonic (ultrasound) energy puts excessive pressure on the fat cells and causes them to break down. The surrounding tissues are safe from this treatment, and it only targets fatty tissues in certain body parts such as the abdomen, which is a common issue in men and women. The chain of ultrasonic energy constantly puts pressure on the fatty layer beneath the skin and causes it to collapse. The liquified remnants of the fat cells are later absorbed, and after this, our body’s natural system takes charge and eliminates them over time. 

After getting this treatment, there is no downtime, and anyone can get back to their daily grind. The procedure is also equally quicker than cryolipolysis, if not more. An average person may require 2 to 3 sessions with two weeks intervals. Over time, after your skin gets rid of the cellular debris and processes it, you will continue to see visible results and get your fat reduced. The destroyed fat cells cannot grow back, and you can maintain your slimmer and fitter body for long.
