New Year, Leaner You with Body Contouring
- Posted on: Jan 4 2018
The good news is that you don’t need to get a tummy tuck or liposuction to achieve the body you want. At the Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery, we have three fat reducing/body contouring technologies to help you get a better looking body without invasive surgery or recovery time.
This technology freezes body fat, causing the cells to die and be absorbed by the body over several weeks. We do this without damaging the skin and muscles because fat freezes at a higher temperature than those tissues.
Cooling panels lightly suction the skin and cool the tissue. This procedure kills about 20% of fat cells in the treatment area. You can expect an initial feeling of intense cooling followed by numbness without any pain.
BTL Vanquish ME™
This fat cell disruption technology uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to eliminate fat around your abdomen or thighs.
A high-frequency energy field delivers the RF to fat tissue in these targeted areas. The RF energy heats the fat layer to liquefy and kill fat cells without touching the skin. This procedure targets into the fat layer and not the outer skin or muscle layers.
Most of our patients get one treatment a week for four weeks. Each session takes about 45 minutes to treat the abdominal area and 30 minutes to treat the thighs.
We combine the above body contour procedures with BTL Cellutone to improve the appearance of cellulite-marred skin. This technology uses therapeutic vibrations to help eliminate restricted blood flow and waste accumulation, which forms cellulite. It enhances circulation and oxygen in the body to result in better looking skin.
Cellutone also ensures that the fat cells that are frozen with CoolSculpting or melted with Vanquish ME are eliminated quickly and efficiently.
