It is always frustrating when you spend hours in the gym, stay physically active, and eat a healthy diet, yet you cannot shed excess, stubborn weight. However, thanks to recent technological advances, it is now possible to benefit from permanent fat reduction West Los Angeles. Many cosmetic treatments can allow you to get rid of stubborn fat from different sections of your body, including love handles, back, thighs, arms, and belly. Unlike liposuction, some procedures are non-invasive and therefore do not cause much pain and discomfort. Consequently, below are some leading non-invasive or non-surgical procedures your doctor may recommend for permanent fat reduction.
- Profound® Radiofrequency Microneedling
Profound Microneedle RF is a permanent fat reduction technique that focuses on triggering more production of essential proteins essential for healthy, vibrant skin. The fat removal technique enhances the creation of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA). Naturally, as you age, your body gradually decreases its protein production, and thus your skin will show aging signs like sagging.
Moreover, Profound Microneedle RF can also help reduce the volume of the underlying layer of fat in your skin.
The treatment works by exposing deeper layers of your skin to radiofrequency energy using a microneedling method. Tiny needles allow heat distribution to a precise area of your skin, enabling lifting, tightening, and restoring its elasticity.
Also known as CoolSculpting, cryolipolysis is a non-surgical technique that can enable your plastic surgeon to reduce the localized accumulation of fat or bulges resistant to a healthy diet and exercise.
Before beginning cryolipolysis, your health provider assesses and outlines the areas with fat deposits that need treatment. Then, your doctor places a handheld device on top of the skin area with fat accumulation.
The activation of the device transmits low temperatures to the layers of your skin, allowing the freezing of fat cells. Freezing fat cells destroys them while leaving adjacent tissues unaffected.
Research shows that CoolSculpting can permanently reduce fat in a particular part of your body by more than 25%. Often, a treatment session lasts less than one hour, and during and after treatment, you may only experience mild discomfort and side effects like swelling, tingling, and numbness.
You may not be the right candidate for CoolScultping if you have cold intolerance or abnormal sensitivity to cold. For example, your doctor may discourage you from CoolSculpting if you have Raynaud’s phenomenon or cold urticaria.
- Laser treatment
One of the common laser treatment brands for permanent fat reduction is SculpSure. Also called laser lipolysis, laser treatment exposes your subcutaneous fat to controlled, intense heat. The heating of the fatty tissues makes them break down gradually.
Laser treatment for fat reduction also incorporates cooling technology to ensure no damage to the skin adjacent to the treatment site.
Treating a body area using SculpSure lasts about 30 minutes, and you may start to notice desired results six weeks after treatment.
- Ultrasound cavitation
The permanent fat reduction treatment relies on ultrasound technology for breaking down and destroying fat cells underneath your skin layers. Ultrasonic vibrations apply high, controlled pressure to your fat cells, which converts them into a liquid solution. Your body removes the resulting liquid through urination.
