If you are looking for a way to get rid of stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise, you may be interested in fat reduction treatments . These non-invasive procedures use various technologies to target and destroy fat cells, resulting in a slimmer and more contoured appearance. Unlike liposuction, which requires anesthesia, incisions, and recovery time, non-surgical fat reduction treatments are quick, easy, and have minimal side effects.
At Burlington Plastic Surgery, we offer two types of non-surgical fat reduction treatments: CoolSculpting and SculpSure. These treatments are FDA-approved and clinically proven to reduce fat in specific body areas, such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, and chin. Here is a brief overview of their work and what to expect from them.
CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells. The procedure involves applying a gel pad and an applicator to the desired area, delivering a precise cold temperature to the fat tissue. The dead fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over several weeks or months.
CoolSculpting is a comfortable and painless procedure that takes about an hour per treatment area. You can relax, read, or watch TV while the device works. You may experience some redness, swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area, but these are temporary and will resolve independently.
You can expect noticeable results within three weeks and the final results within three months. Depending on your goals, you may need one or more sessions to achieve the desired outcome.
SculpSure is a fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled heating to melt and destroy fat cells. The procedure involves placing flat applicators on the desired area, which then deliver a precise amount of laser energy to the fat tissue.
The laser energy heats the fat cells to a temperature that causes them to rupture and die while leaving the surrounding skin and tissue unaffected. The dead fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over several weeks or months.
SculpSure is a comfortable and painless procedure that takes about 25 minutes per treatment area. You may feel a warm or tingling sensation during the treatment, but it is well-tolerated by most patients. You may experience some redness, swelling, or tenderness in the treated area, but these are temporary and will resolve independently.
You can expect noticeable results within six weeks and the final results within 12 weeks. Depending on your goals, you may need one or more sessions to achieve the desired outcome.
Which Fat Reduction Treatment is Right for You?
CoolSculpting and SculpSure are effective and safe ways to reduce stubborn fat without surgery. However, they are not weight loss solutions, and they are not suitable for everyone.
