You have likely heard about the benefits that individuals can receive using body contouring procedures. They are helping individuals to remove unwanted fat and love the shape of their bodies. Here are a few body contouring procedures that are available.
If you are looking for a procedure that is going to give you immediate results, liposuction is the most common option. When liposuction is performed, an incision is made in the area where you have unwanted fat. The fat is physically removed. As you can imagine, this procedure is invasive and involves quite a bit of discomfort and downtime. Thankfully, non-surgical options are available.
There are a variety of non-surgical body contouring treatments that are available. All of these options do not require incisions to be made. They do not produce immediate results. In most cases, a person will have to wait weeks or months before they notice a more attractive body shape. This is because almost all non-surgical body contouring treatments damage the fat cells under the skin without actually damaging the skin. They call on the body’s immune system to naturally remove the damaged fat cells, leading to fat loss and a more attractive body shape.
Laser treatments can be used in a non-surgical way. With treatments like these that are non-surgical, heat is delivered by the laser and affects the targeted fat cells. A cooling device keeps the skin at a comfortable temperature. Since the fat cells are destroyed by the heat, they cannot return. As long as a person maintains a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle, they can expect permanent results.
