Many people are unaware of the more holistic equivalents to fat loss – if you are considering a fat loss treatment, you now have the choice between surgical and a range of non-surgical treatments.
In the past, liposuction would have been the best available treatment for those of us carrying extra fat that won’t shift through healthy diet and exercise alone.
But thanks to technology advancements, you can now opt for non-invasive, painless alternatives with no need for anaesthetic. Fat freezing, 3D Lipo and Lipofirm are some of the fat loss treatments available as alternatives to full-on surgical procedures.
Fat freezingWith no need for anaesthetic, fat freezing is one of the most effective ways to destroy fat cells safely. A hoover-like suction is applied to the target area, freezing the fat cells and causing them to become damaged enough for the body to naturally dispose of them as they are no longer needed. Aside from the area feeling numb and cold, you can carry on with your day straight away.
3D LipoThis non-invasive treatment is commonly used to tackle post-pregnancy tummies, bingo wings and muffin tops. It can also be used to treat cellulite, and tighten and rejuvenate skin. A conductive gel is massaged in a circular motion, with the use of ultrasound amplification plates. Using a low frequency ultrasound, strong waves of pressure are sent out to the fat cell membranes, causing the cells to disintegrate and turn to liquid. Your body’s natural detoxification process will then flush the liquid and any other fats out of your body.
Lipofirm fat reductionThis treatment uses radio frequencies to heat the targeted areas of fat, causing liquid fat to be released from cells, which are then absorbed by the muscles, removing them naturally. During the treatment, a warm pressure is applied to the target areas – this causes a slight flicking sensation, triggering this natural process. Multiple areas can be targeted in one sitting, such as the stomach, back, arms and thighs.
Everybody is different and so too are their fat loss results. Always ensure you receive a thorough consultation with a specialist before you opt for any aesthetic procedure.
