When it comes to appearance, most people are their own worst critics. They can be incredibly hard on themselves, especially when it comes to their weight and the amount of fat they carry on our bodies. And while working out regularly is a great way to maintain a healthy weight and stay in shape, sometimes they still have trouble getting rid of those last few pockets of stubborn fat.
If this sounds like you, don’t worry — you’re not alone. Millions of people struggle with the same issue every day. Fortunately, there are a number of body contouring technologies available that can help you achieve the results you want beyond going to the gym. Keep reading to learn more about these technologies and how they can help you reach your fitness goals.
Take note that these are not weight-loss treatments. They are for people who are almost or even at their ideal weight but only have persistent pockets of fat that do not budge despite workouts.
CoolSculpting™ or cryolipolysis is a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted fat. Developed by physicians at Harvard Medical School and FDA-approved in 2011, this patented technology has been clinically tested to help you achieve a reduction of up to 23% of fat in the treated area. There is no damage to surrounding tissues, and the dead fat cells are removed naturally by your body’s lymphatic system.
In a CoolSculpting clinic, you can achieve the results you desire after only an hour of treatment without surgery or downtime. You won’t even need anaesthesia. It can be used on belly fat and fat in the chin, arms, hips, thighs, and flanks. Most patients see the best results after the second treatment.
CoolAdvantage™ Dual Sculpting
CoolSculpting’s next-generation treatment is CoolAdvantage™, delivering the same freezing technology at a colder temperature. This reduces the time of treatment from an hour to 35 minutes.
The cup design is now larger, treating more tissues at a time. CoolAdvantage will reduce fat cells in treated areas by around 20 to 23%. It can be used on the tummy, belly, love handles, banana rolls, saddlebacks, thighs, hips, and double chins. Up to three or more sessions may be required, depending on your requirements and the amount of fat to be removed.
V-Sculpt Venus Legacy Body
V-Sculpt is a non-surgical fat and cellulite reduction treatment that offers patients an alternative to expensive and invasive procedures. Using Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF), V-Sculpt contours the body by stimulating collagen regeneration, remodelling, and skin tightening. It also uses Varipulse™ technology for better blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, and deeper energy penetration for more effective fat burning.
As a result, patients can expect to see a significant reduction in fat and cellulite, as well as a tightening of loose skin. V-Sculpt is a safe and effective way to achieve the desired results without surgery or downtime.
The X-Wave CELLU-MELT treatment first uses Shockwave Therapy through the FDA-approved X-Wave system from BTL Aesthetics. The vibration aims to break the fibrous bands under the skin and in deeper tissues. This also increases blood circulation and the removal of toxins while stimulating collagen renewal.
Next comes lymphatic drainage through deep tissue massage using Future Cosmetics Serums. The entire treatment eliminates cellulite and is deeply relaxing. Weekly sessions for four to six weeks usually bring the desired results.
X-Lift Exilis Ultra 360
X-Lift treatments aim to tighten skin using the FDA-approved Exilis Ultra 360 system. It combines ultrasound technology with focused, continuous monopolar radiofrequency (RF) technology in one device. The treatment causes collagen to contract and regenerate, tightening the skin.
Patients will benefit most from four treatments with intervals of four to six weeks. It can be used on the face, neck, and any body part that needs skin tightening.
Calf slimming can be achieved through painless microinjections of Botulinum Toxin calibrated to each patient. The microinjections are evenly spaced on the gastrocnemius muscle. The treatment lasts less than an hour and has no downtime. Most women require up to two treatments for noticeable results.
The shrinking of the calf can be seen in 10 to 14 days and will continue up to the sixth week. The results last for six months. The treatment can then be repeated safely.
Extend the Effects of Your Workouts
Working out is a great way to tone your body and remove wide areas of fat, but usually, some bits remain. Also, weight loss sometimes leaves loose skin behind. These can be very frustrating.
Body contouring technologies like CoolSculpting, V-Sculpt, and X-Wave CELLU-MELT can help you achieve the results you desire without surgery or downtime. X-Lift can tighten your skin after you’ve lost weight. Calf slimming through botox can achieve what no exercise technique can. These treatments use the latest technologies and are safe alternatives to expensive and invasive procedures. Check them out to see if they are right for you.
