BENEFITS OF BODY CONTOURING VS EXERCISE
Let’s face it, unless you were born with a flawlessly toned body, attaining the fit body you want takes effort. Workouts in the gym on a daily or weekly basis necessitate a high level of commitment on your behalf.
Even with regular exercise and correct diets, fat deposits on your body, such as your tummy, arms, buttocks, and thighs, typically do not disappear. What if there was a simpler approach to tone your body, develop muscular mass, and lose fat? Body Contouring is now available at the Body Contouring Clinics in Toronto, Richmond Hill, and Mississauga.
WHAT IS BODY CONTOURING
Body contouring, also known as body shaping, refers to both the surgical and non-invasive operations designed to alter your body’s appearance. Surgery is used in invasive procedures to remove skin and tissue after significant weight loss. Breast lifts and augmentations are both invasive body sculpting treatments. Another invasive surgery for removing fat from your body is liposuction. The goal is to remodel a body part by:
• Building Muscles
• Eliminating excess fat
• Reshaping or contouring the area.
At most body contouring clinics, they specialize in non-invasive body contouring, which are cosmetic treatment used to tone and tighten up the body. These therapies are the most effective methods for removing stubborn fat and increasing muscle mass. Each treatment focuses on the skin, muscles, and fat, reducing fat deposits while boosting muscle mass, resulting in a more toned, “contoured” figure.
Do you have persistent fat deposits in your tummy, thighs, arms, and buttocks that won’t go away with exercise or diet? This treatment is perfect for contouring and sculpting these difficult-to-tone areas.
TYPES OF BODY CONTOURING
Lipolysis is a term used to describe nonsurgical body sculpting. Lipolysis can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including:
• Cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting®, for example) employs extremely cold temperatures to eliminate fat cells.
• Injection lipolysis entails injecting deoxycholic acid into the body in order to target fat cells.
• Laser lipolysis (Zerona®, for example) uses lasers to eliminate fat cells.
• Radiofrequency lipolysis (TruSculpt®, for example) targets fat cells with ultrasound waves and heat.
•HIFEM (Emsculpt®, for example)
HIFEM® stands for high-intensity focused electromagnetic technology. HIFEM® uses a powerful but harmless form of electromagnetic stimulation to contract the muscles in a targeted area. These magnetic fields create electrical currents, which are passed to the muscles.
Body Contouring can target most areas in the human body.
Common sites on the body include:
• Love handles
• Back fat
• Double chin
• Underneath the buttocks
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING HIFEM TREATMENT?
Body Contouring Clinic uses the latest HIFEM technology because it is the only body contouring procedure that can BOTH eliminate fat and build muscle. In four 30-minute treatment sessions (at two-week intervals), HIFEM Body Contouring provides proven outcomes for muscle as shown in numerous peer-reviewed clinical trials. At two weeks, post-treatment muscle mass density had increased more than 20% over baseline with corresponding rises in muscle fiber density and mean size of muscle fibers. Across studies measuring via CT, MRI and ultrasound scanning as well as histology, notable improvements in muscle mass (16%) and fat reduction (19%) were seen.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT?
All you need to do for your treatment is lie down and relax. There is a sensation of severe muscle contractions during the treatment. There is no discomfort, no sweating, and no negative effects on the body. It is not necessary to undress. It is recommended that the patient wear sleeveless top and lycra tights (for buttocks & thighs).
Also, 1 hour before or after treatment, do not eat anything.
• One treatment area takes 30 minutes, with little to no downtime. Multiple treatments (4-6) are usually required to deliver satisfactory results.
