These days, many people are interested in removing excess fat from various regions of their bodies. However, these individuals are oftentimes interested in non-surgical alternatives to traditional methods like liposuction. If this is the case for you, be sure to review the quick reference guide that appears below to learn about other options:
CoolSculpting® is a fat reduction method that involves utilizing an applicator to target fat bulges on the upper abdomen and thighs. The procedure involves using an innovative form of technology that destroys fat cells through a freezing process. As many experts know, our fat cells are significantly more susceptible to freezing temperatures than other tissues in our bodies. Therefore, professionals can use the CoolSculpting® applicator to cool problem areas and eliminate fat without disturbing the tissues surrounding the targeted area.
Once the CoolSculpting® procedure has been completed, the patient’s body will begin to naturally metabolize the fat cells that have been destroyed. The end result is a more sculpted, slimmer-looking body. An added benefit of this alternative to liposuction is that you’ll be able to return to your daily schedule immediately.
VelaShape® is a liposuction alternative that involves the use of several technologies, including Vacuum and Mechanical Massage, Infrared Light Energy, and Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF). The precise heating involved in the treatment ensures an effective, fast, safe treatment that entails no downtime. The Mechanical Massage works to smooth the skin in order to facilitate efficient, safe delivery of heat energy. The smoothing motions generate a boosted metabolism capable of utilizing stored energy, increasing lymphatic draining, and shrinking or reducing the size of the fat chambers and fat cells. The end result is cellulite reduction.
Zerona® is another non-invasive alternative to liposuction that is effective in removing excess body fat without causing the adverse side effects that come with conventional surgical methodologies. Zerona® works by using cold laser technology that emulsifies fat and also enables it to relocate into interstitial space. This cold laser technology has proven effective in releasing fat cell content without disturbing the other cells and capillaries in the interstitial space. The fat cell contents are released because of the disruption of the patient’s cell membrane. This disruption is referred to as a transitory pore, and it results from low level stimulation via laser.
Prior to being exposed to the laser, the fat cells will have a regular shape. After being exposed to the low level laser, these cells will start developing transitory pores that allow the cell’s contents to be evacuated into extracellular space. Next, the fat cell contents can move through the patient’s body and go through the normal detoxification course.
