Whether your trouble spot is belly fat, bra overhang, or a double chin, most people are well acquainted with nagging fat that simply doesn’t go away. non-invasive body sculpting is one of the best solutions available.
Using a variety of medical devices, Dr. Daniel Lebowitz at the World Wellness Health Institute in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, can effectively and painlessly eliminate those problem areas once and for all, without the need for surgery.
What is body sculpting?
Body sculpting, also called body contouring, refers to procedures that use lasers, radiofrequency waves, and a few other technologies to remove pockets of fat that persist despite your efforts at diet at exercise.
The procedure is well-named because it’s used to sculpt or refine your body shape, not for major weight loss.
You can use non-invasive techniques to get rid of fat on most parts of your body including your abdomen, arms, thighs, flanks, and under the chin.
There are five ways non-invasive body sculpting gets the job done, so you can enjoy a body that’s slim and toned:
1. Permanently destroys fat
There’s no doubt about the most important benefit of body sculpting: It permanently eliminates fat. At the World Wellness Institute, non-invasive body sculpting is done with SculpSure® and ThermiSmooth®, depending on the overall results you want to achieve.
ThermiSmooth uses radiofrequency (RF), while SculpSure emits laser energy. Both systems operate on the same principle — they use heat to destroy fat cells. RF waves and laser energy pass through your skin without causing damage, then they’re absorbed by fat cells.
The fat cells are heated to a precise temperature at which they’re destroyed. Then your body clears away the cellular waste through your lymphatic system. When the process of cellular breakdown and cleanup is finished, the treated fat cells are gone — for good.
2. Tightens and tones skin
Body sculpting using RF waves can tackle several cosmetic concerns because RF sends out different wavelengths at one time. While one RF frequency heats fat cells, another one goes to work stimulating cells that produce collagen and elastin.
Collagen is responsible for giving your skin strength and tone, while elastin is elastic, so it adds resilience. As you get older, production of both proteins naturally slows down, which is a key reason why aging skin loses tone and sags.
Your skin continuously sheds old cells at the surface, which are replaced with new cells produced below the surface. With a boost of collagen and elastin from your RF treatment, your fresh skin becomes tighter and better toned.
This skin-tightening effect works hand-in-hand with eliminating fat because it ensures you aren’t left with loose skin after your pockets of fat melt away.
3. Reduces the appearance of cellulite
As most women know, cellulite is different from normal fat and even harder to lose. It occurs when collagen fibers in connective tissues under your skin weaken, a problem caused by aging and when the fibers are stretched due to weight gain.
Once collagen weakens, fat pushes its way through the fibers, creating the classic dimpled appearance of cellulite.
Body sculpting diminishes the appearance of cellulite when fat is destroyed while new collagen tightens the skin. Their combined effect diminishes cellulite.
4. Creates natural-appearing results
One of the challenges of procedures like liposuction is removing fat in a way that follows your body’s natural contour and doesn’t leave odd-looking lumps. You don’t have to worry about that with non-invasive body sculpting.
RF and laser energy are both delivered equally over the targeted area. You also don’t lose all the fat in one session. You’re left with smooth results that look natural.
5. Immediate and long-term results
When fat is destroyed, it takes about 6-12 weeks to see the full results because it takes your body time to finish clearing away the treated fat. After that, the results last forever, as long as you don’t gain weight.
If your body sculpting includes skin tightening and collagen regeneration, you get the benefit of immediate results as the existing collagen contracts to produce noticeable results. Then your skin continues to improve as new collagen is gradually produced and migrates to the surface.
With so many body sculpting options, it’s good to know you can count on Dr. Lebowitz to evaluate your body and explain what to expect from each one. Call World Wellness Health Institute for a consultation as soon as you’re ready to regain the body shape you deserve.
