Body contours have always been a trend, albeit something that changes as often as every few years. Because of this, we have seen several different body types come into “fashion.” Regardless of whether a woman is drawn to having an hourglass figure or one that is relatively curve-less and waiflike, there is usually a desire for some degree of sculpting in one or more areas of the body. Thanks to expanded knowledge regarding health and wellness and new technologies in aesthetic medicine, body contouring has become increasingly easier to manage. Here, we discuss some of the ways that a body can become leaner, tighter, smoother, and younger-looking.
Diet and Exercise are Irreplaceable
Regardless of having technology at our fingertips to slim and sculpt the body, it is necessary to implement healthy habits. Good diet and exercise habits boost the results of any treatment one may have done. It may also decrease the number of treatment sessions or touch-ups that may be needed. Body contouring treatments are not the solution in and of themselves; they are the icing on the cake of physical fitness.
Modern Body Sculpting at a Glance
Fat cells are difficult to manage for many people. They seem to expand much easier than they shrink. Fat-reduction using diet and exercise alone can be a challenge. Professional fat-reducing treatments can jump-start a new look or finish off what healthy habits have started. Those last ten pounds may be easily resolved with one of our high-tech body fat-reduction treatments.
- CoolSculpting noninvasive fat-reduction eliminates targeted fat cells by freezing them. The body flushes the destroyed fat cells over 8 to 12 weeks.
- Vanquish non-invasive fat-reduction eliminates unwanted fat by heating them with radiofrequency energy. Destroyed fat cells are flushed from the body. Because radiofrequency heats the dermis as well as the layer of subcutaneous fat, there is a skin-tightening aspect to this treatment that is not available with CoolSculpting.
Historically, the only way to tighten lax muscles was through exercise. Today, we can target certain muscles, such as the glutes of the buttocks, for dramatic tightening. We do this with the EMSCULPT device. In a short, thirty-minute treatment session, thousands of deep muscle contractions take place. This is a painless procedure that may feel strange for a few minutes and like a strenuous workout afterward. Muscle toning is achieved by causing the muscles to contract, after all.
