Non-Surgical Body Contouring: Your Best Version in The Safest Way

Unwanted fat reduction has never been an easy task. We all must have tried diet control and intense workouts, only to get no visible results. It’s frustrating to put so much effort and get no results. Tired and sick of trying, people started availing invasive and surgical solutions for fat removal. Multiple aggressively invasive fat reduction methods have circulated in the beauty industry, such as liposuction. But the painful procedures, extended recovery times, and possible side effects have stopped most of us from availing of such treatments. 

However, with much advancement and a pressing desire for the fitter and sculpted bodies, we now have a safer, pain-free, and more effective alternative to surgical body contouring. Non-surgical body contouring procedures such as cool sculpting, Emsculpt, Ultrasonic Cavitation, and Body Hifu have taken the aesthetic world by storm. 

These non-invasive treatments do not pose any threat or serious side effects. Their non-invasiveness also makes them quick and efficient. So patients normally do not require any downtime for recovery. However, to avoid any possibility of side effects, you should ensure getting the treatments from a credible clinic such as Cutera Aesthetics. It’s good to review your health history when you talk with your practitioner about the best treatment. Our experts can guide and help you with your body concerns. Contact today for free treatment. 

Non-Surgical Body Contouring: Remove Unwanted Fat Without Pain

Contrary to surgical methods, these non-invasive methods do not reduce fat by making incisions and cuts. They do not even use needles, injections, or any other invasive approach. Instead, these body sculpting procedures either freeze fat cells using cold temperatures, destroy them using heat and thermal energy, dismantle them with radiofrequency, or liquefy them using electromagnetic waves. All body contouring devices work best for those with a normal body mass index (18.5 and 24.9). They do permanently destroy fat cells. Clinically obese people who exceed their normal BMI range cannot avail these procedures as they are not a weight loss solution. They offer a targeted way to reshape areas such as your abdomen, love handles, thighs, upper arms, etc.

Cool Sculpting (Cold treatments)

This procedure uses cold temperatures to kill fat cells but not damage your skin. A device pulls portions of skin in by suction, then cools it to destroy the fat underneath for a set amount of time. The temperature is cold enough to damage and break down the fat cells but not enough to pose any damage to the skin layers. This is why this procedure is safe. You can use this procedure on many body parts, including the chin, arms, abdomen, love handles, and thighs. It’s safe for most patients. However, those who have a medical condition that makes them extra sensitive to cold temperatures like Raynaud’s syndrome, for instance, should not use this treatment.

Ultrasonic Cavitation (Ultrasound energy)

This type of treatment uses ultrasound energy to break down fat. It’s the most time-intensive of the four types, taking approximately one hour per treatment session. Instead of hooking you up to a machine, a technician will move the device around manually. It uses a mechanical vibration to break down and destroy fat. This works on the abdomen and isn’t meant for other areas, and there is no discomfort.

Body Hifu (Thermal Treatment)

Radiofrequency devices deliver energy to create heat and destroy fat cells. They target water in the cells, so it’s essential to hydrate your body well beforehand since the treatment is not as effective if you’re dehydrated. You might feel a warm sensation during this procedure. This treatment has no downtime.

This laser is FDA-approved for fat reduction. The device uses laser energy to damage the structure of fat cells, and the body then eliminates the dead cells. This device uses a flat applicator, so it doesn’t work well on body areas with curves. Heat treatments work best for the stomach and thighs.

EmSculpt (Electromagnetic Waves)

This is another non-surgical option for body sculpting and can provide not one but two benefits; fat loss and an increase in muscle mass. This procedure can ensure results that even constant exercise cannot offer.
