You have likely heard about the different body contouring treatments that are available. If you have unwanted fat on your body, you may be wondering if they are a good option for you. We would like to explain what some of the treatments involve and who they can help.
What Is Body Contouring?
One of the first misconceptions that people have is that these treatments are designed to help people lose weight. The truth is that an individual needs to be close to a healthy weight in order to qualify for most of them. These treatments do not provide overall weight loss. The goal in most of the treatments is to remove unwanted fat cells. This may mean that a person will lose three or four pounds, but they should not expect significant weight loss.
The goal of body contouring is to give a person a more shapely figure. It can remove unwanted fat in order to allow a person to have a more toned and defined physique. It can help people who have stubborn pockets of fat on their body that do not respond to diet and exercise. For example, some individuals have certain pockets of fat that are genetic. Those pockets of fat can be removed with the different treatments we offer.
It is good to know that there are a whole lot different options that are under the umbrella of body contouring. Some of the options are surgical. There are also non-surgical options. These treatments use ultrasound, injections, heat, or intense cold in order to damage fat cells without harming the skin or the body tissue. As these fat cells are broken or in some other way damaged, the body will respond by removing the fat cells. This means that a person can get a more shapely appearance and get rid of stubborn fat without the risks associated with surgery.
We offer CoolSculpting®, a body contouring treatment that uses intense cold to destroy the fat cells in certain areas of the body. The most common areas that can be treated include the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, and double chin.
