5 FDA approved body contouring treatments, what's the difference?
A fter your new diet and exercise program leads to the rapid weight Loss, you may need Body Contouring treatments.
Before heading for the mall, you may want to take a closer look at your body. Chances are that although the extra pounds are gone, you now see flabby, loose skin or pockets of fat that cling on stubbornly refusing to budge. There may be a few aftereffects of rapid weight loss that you should prepare for. And non-invasive body contouring treatments may be the key to one of the effects.
When you lose weight, the body sheds the pounds evenly all over which is why no matter how hard you work out, losing inches in specific areas is just not possible. It might surprise you to know that non-invasive body contouring and shaping techniques are fast gaining popularity in the U.S. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, around 17.5 million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures were performed in the year 2017 alone so, you now have a range of options to choose from.
Here’s a quick look at the procedures available to you that are FDA-approved and safe to use.
CoolSculpting® (Temperature-Based Fat-Reduction)
One of the top techniques to lose the unwanted inches is Cryotherapy or CoolSculpting® as it is commercially known. This system works on the premise that fat cells are more sensitive to supercool temperatures. Should you sign up for the procedure, the device will suck up the problem areas into a vacuum cup and cool them to low temperatures. In response, the fat cells freeze and die leaving the surrounding tissues intact.
Over the next few weeks, your body recognizes the dead cells as debris and eliminates it via the natural waste disposal system. You’ll soon note that the inches are melting away. Since the entire process is performed without a single cut in the skin, it is safe to use.
Vanquish® (Radiofrequency Fat Removal)
Marketed by BTL Industries, the Vanquish® device emits radiofrequency waves for deep heating in the target areas. The heat produced by the rapid oscillating movements affects only the fat cells leaving the other tissues unaffected. You can get this body contouring treatment for sections like the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper back, and hips. Each session lasts for around 45 minutes and works through the device that is set up over the skin without touching it.
Not only is the Vanquish system FDA-approved, but it is unlikely to cause adverse effects. You can expect the results from this body contouring treatment to last for a long while if you continue to follow your nutritious diet and regular exercise program.
Zerona Laser (Cold Laser)
The Zerona Cold Laser Body Shaping procedure uses cold lasers to burn away the fat cells and give you the perfect contours you want. Zerona is entirely non-invasive and works without inflicting any damage to the skin. You’ll lie back comfortably on a table for 20 minutes while six lasers work on your abdomen, hips, thighs, back, upper torso, or any other areas where you need fat removal. Users have talked about losing a total of 3.72 inches from the belly, hips, and upper thighs. Unlike any other forms of laser therapy, there are no side effects or downtime involved and you can safely return to your regular activities right away.
Ultrasound Cavitation (Sound Waves)
Ultrasound Cavitation or Ultrasonic Cavitation as it is also called inflicts sound waves at a special frequency into the body. The sound causes the fat cells to vibrate at fast speeds which results in their outer membranes rupturing. The lipids contained in the fat cells are released into the surrounding tissues where they are burned to release energy. Ultrasound cavitation works with the help of a wand that is run over your skin.
By monitoring the depths at which the sound waves reach with digital imaging devices, doctors can target the fat cells with precision making it one of the most effective body contouring treatments available today. Aside from tingling and numbness that lasts for a couple of days, you’re unlikely to experience any other adverse effects.
Losing adequate weight to reach the optimum Body Mass Index (BMI) is no doubt the best way to remain healthy. But, even after losing the excess pounds, you may need additional treatments to help you tone your body to the desired shape and contours. And now this is possible with the right options. Try them without worrying about harmful effects and get the curves you’re looking for.
HIFEM® – High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic Energy
HIFEM – High Intensity Focused Electro Magnetic energy is the latest body contouring category to sculpt and contour both muscle & fat. The device creates an intensive work out in a very short period. In fact, it’s like the equivalent of 20,000 sit ups in 30 minutes. As a result, HIFEM technology stimulates extremely powerful muscle contractions that lead to deep remodeling of the muscle fibres and at the same time, help the fat cells to vigorously metabolize and decompose.
