Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise, there are stubborn areas where the fat never seems to go away. Body contouring is the process of reducing unwanted fat deposits without counting calories or spending hours at the gym. From noninvasive Sculpsure to minimally invasive Smartlipo®, body contouring is safe, effective and has little to no downtime involved.
While there are several body-contouring procedures, the best options are those that are noninvasive or minimally invasive. Among these are Sculpsure, Kybella, Pelleve, and PelleFirm.
SculpSure uses hypothermic lasers to agitate fat cells, allowing your body to safely flush them out through a natural detoxification process. The fat cells break away from your body’s tissue and exit the body. With the added benefit of stimulating collagen production, SculpSure leaves your skin smooth and firm without incisions or time away from work or the gym. (Patients report feeling a heating sensation on the target area during the 25-minute procedure.)
Kybella is designed to treat the unwanted fat that gives you a double chin. Deoxycholic acid, a substance that’s found naturally in your body, is injected into the fatty areas of your neck and chin. The acid then dissolves fat deposits. Since the fat won’t regenerate, you can expect lasting results. Kybella is usually given with a small dose of numbing medicine and mild discomfort is common for three to seven days after the procedure.
Pelleve and PelleFirm use radio frequencies in the deep layers of the skin to cause the collagen in your skin to tighten and contract. Once the treatment is complete, new collagen begins forming, giving you softer, firmer skin. When applied with a massaging head, PelleFirm stimulates the movement of fluid throughout the body and allows the lymphatic system to naturally evacuate any excess. This process temporarily reduces the appearance of ugly cellulite in the arms, legs, buttocks, hips, and stomach.
