Body Contouring: Non-invasive Fat Reduction & Skin Tightening

Fat Reduction & Skin Tightening

Body Contouring: Non-invasive Fat Reduction & Skin Tightening

Body contouring in Westchester County is an umbrella term, including any cosmetic procedure that uses either surgical or non-invasive treatments to sculpt the physique by changing and enhancing the shape of the body. Individuals of both genders have used body contouring treatments in order to target stubborn fat and tighten areas of loose skin.

Surgical Body Contouring

Liposuction is definitely the most common surgical body contouring procedure. Treatments that remove excess skin or tighten up sagging skin – facelifts and tummy tucks are also popular. Surgical body contouring is quite effective, but some might be eager to consider alternative procedures due to the invasive nature of such cosmetic surgeries. General anesthesia, scalpels, stitches, scars, recovery times, and everything else you would expect from a surgical procedure are the necessary costs of pursuing an invasive option.

Non-invasive Body Contouring

New advancements in non-invasive procedures have driven a shift in the body contouring industry, and non-surgical alternatives have become widely available. CoolSculpting is certainly the most popular of these non-invasive procedures. CoolSculpting offers healthy adults a non-surgical alternative to liposuction and is very effective at reducing fat bulges. In addition to reducing fat, thermal treatments like Venus Legacy Skin Tightening provide non-surgical skin tightening services that provide an alternative to a facelift.

Coolsculpting – Freeze Away Your Fat

There are multiple non-invasive fat reduction treatments entering the market. Most treatments employ thermal energy, sourced from lasers or radiofrequency, to melt down fat. CoolSculpting goes the opposite route, and is the only FDA-approved fat reduction procedure that uses cooling technology to safely freeze away fat. CoolSculpting is currently the most used non-invasive fat reduction treatment globally. The procedure utilizes a clinically proven process called cryolipolysis, which subjects subcutaneous fat cells to temperatures cold enough to freeze fat, while not damaging the intervening skin. Scientific studies demonstrated that a single CoolSculpting treatment reduces stubborn fat by up to 25%.¹

Liposuction tends to be the appropriate option for currently obese patients, but healthy people who are trying to decrease stubborn bulges that are unresponsive to exercise and diet changes often prefer CoolSculpting because it is quick, painless, and requires no downtime.

CoolSculpting is best for treating problematic areas, such as belly fat, bra bulge, upper arm fat, love handles, thigh fat, double chins, and more. CoolSculpting results look totally natural, and once fat cells have been frozen and excreted out of the body after the cryolipolysis process has finished, they cannot grow back, which means that CoolSculpting provides long-lasting reductions in fat. ¹

Skin Tightening With Venus Legacy

Venus Legacy is a fantastic non-invasive skin tightening procedure. It is cleared by the FDA as safe and effective for addressing skin laxity in problem areas like the neck, face, stomach, and arms. Venus Legacy is painless and safe for all skin types, has no recovery time attached, and can be performed in less than an hour so you can get on with your day.

Venus Legacy combines Multipolar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields, which both penetrate the skin’s surface to heat the layers of the dermis, where the skin’s structural proteins lie. There, thermal energy activates skin rejuvenation, strengthening fibers and encouraging collagen and elastin production, which leads to remarkable improvements in sagging, loose skin.²

Clinical reviews of Venus Legacy report that comprehensive skin rejuvenation follows treatment. Patients enjoy firm and tight skin, of course, but also better skin tone and texture, a reduction of skin blemishes and fat cells, and an overall youthful appearance.2 Researchers reported, “Significant improvement in skin laxity was observed…All patients reported that they were satisfied with the procedure and noticed a visible improvement in their skin condition after the treatment.”3
