I was at my daughter's bridal shower, my eyes focused on a pretty little red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing, when the woman next to me gestured at a tiny roll on her otherwise flat abdomen and announced: “Next week, I’m going to get this taken care of!”
Suddenly everyone was dishing about saddlebags and muffin tops, bra fat and underarms. I chimed in complaining about how my favorite white jeans were fitting a little too snugly, while the blonde next to me fretted about how "Instagram-unfriendly" her thighs were...sigh.
We were nitpicking, granted, but its difficult not to when, thanks to many technological innovations in non-invasive body contouring procedures, there’s now a fat-blasting solution for nearly every trouble zone! These days, instead of it being a question of "if" I can have flat abs and a thigh gap, it’s a question of "how", and "how fast?"
With summer just around the corner, many of us find ourselves "nitpicking" more than usual. We all know the importance of a healthy lifestyle, but the fact is, there are just some areas of the body where excess fat is extremely difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. There is good news though! With all of the advanced equipment and breakthroughs in medical aesthetics there are now several non-invasive and less expensive procedures that offer smarter, more convenient alternatives to surgical procedures and other high-risk treatments. Skin tightening & body contouring treatments are not just fads or tech-gimmicks. They are real, proven procedures that actually work and that have been fully approved by the FDA for use in the medical aesthetics field.
Here are 3 Affordable Body Contouring procedures that Actually work! (...and lucky for us, they are all three available at Cosmetic Laser Center!)
CoolSculpting is THE non-surgical solution you’ve been waiting for.
CoolSculpting Freezes & Eliminates Stubborn Fat. The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and permanently eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. The science is proven. The technology is proven. The results are proven. (Ba-bye saddlebags!)
VShape Ultra is a noninvasive and pain-free treatment for cellulite reduction, skin tightening, facial lifting as well as permanent fat reduction.
VShape Ultra helps smooth and contour loose, wrinkled or dimpled skin anywhere on the face and body. Treatments can help flatten your stomach and slim your hips & thighs, as well as, improve the loose skin that can develop on your face, neck and upper arms.
VShape Ultra combines Alma Lasers proprietary ultrasound and radio frequency technologies. The treatment process is entirely comfortable, quick and pain free. For optimal results a series of bi-weekly treatments is usually recommended. VShape Ultra treatments start with acoustic shear waves selectively disrupting fat cells, leading to gradual breakdown and release of their fatty contents, while not affecting the surrounding area. Next, radio frequency accelerates local metabolism helping cells to release and drain unwanted fat, while simultaneously stimulating the skin to produce new collagen. This new collagen production is what gives skin the smooth texture, elastic quality and beautiful radiance of youth.
VShape Ultra is a safe alternative to face lifts and liposuction. It can safely be used on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, thighs and buttocks with no side effects, pain or downtime.
truSculpt is a non-surgical procedure that produces permanent surgical type results without pain or downtime.
truSculpt ‘s unique technology uses radio frequency to heat and eliminate unwanted fat cells without pain or surgery. The procedure is FDA-cleared, safe and effective. The results are lasting and undeniable. In only two treatments on average, patients can quickly see permanent results in their appearance, such as smaller mass, tighter skin and less dimpling. truSculpt can be used on any area where fat deposits can accumulate: such as the arms, buttocks, thighs, love handles, back, bra wings, or abdomen.
It takes a few months to see the full results from these treatments, so adding them to your 90 Days to Your Best Body plan now means you'll have results by summer!
These treatments can be performed in an hour to an hour-and-a-half per treatment area and you can get back to your normal activities immediately after the procedure. Just imagine taking a long lunch and jump starting your body contouring in those areas that bother you! No more “thunder thighs or “muffin tops!” You will of course need to maintain a healthy lifestyle after undergoing the treatment, but it is SO MUCH EASIER to follow a healthy diet and workout regimen when you are motivated! And nothing motivates us more than seeing results.
More soon darling, keep going!
