Non-invasive fat loss has become a big business in the United States. More and more people are frustrated with those stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to healthy diets and hours spent at the gym. In response to the growing demand, the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a number of treatments and devices that give a gradual and modest fat loss to those looking to shape and contour their body without the associated risks of surgery.
What does body sculpting do?
Body sculpting also referred to as body contouring, is a medical procedure used to reshape and contour certain areas of the body. There are both surgical and non-surgical (or non-invasive) procedures available. Liposuction, facelifts, and tummy tucks are all examples of surgical procedures that use incisions, sutures, injections, and sometimes anesthesia. Less traumatic, non-invasive procedures use lipolysis to target and eliminate specific areas of fat by causing controlled damage to the fat cells and ultimately destroying them. Body sculpting can be done in different ways, by using heat (lasers), freezing, injections, or radiofrequency/ultrasound, but whichever method is used, the end results are the same. Lipolysis works by collapsing fat cells, causing their contents to be evacuated into the bloodstream and permanently destroying the fat cells. The fatty contents are processed via the body’s lymphatic system and eliminated as normal waste over the next six to twelve weeks. Results appear gradually as the body slowly gets rid of the fat and are typically final within six to twelve weeks.
At BeautyVille Laser & Aesthetics we use radiofrequency, or ultrasound, lipolysis which uses highly focused sound waves to break down the walls of the fat cells and release the contents. The ultrasound energy is sent deep into the layers of the skin, causing rapid pressure fluctuations that destroy the fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. Although the fat cells are destroyed permanently the body can generate new ones, so keeping to a healthy lifestyle is crucial to maintaining long-term results.
How much weight can you lose with body sculpting?
Body sculpting is used for fat loss, not weight loss. Ideal candidates should be at or near (within 10-20 pounds of) their ideal body weight and should understand that while a minimal amount of weight may be lost the procedure is designed to reduce inches and not pounds.
How often can you do body sculpting?
Different body sculpting options have different parameters, but with radiofrequency/ultrasound a typical patient will need 1 to 3 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart, depending on the areas treated.
Who needs body sculpting?
There are many people who could benefit from body sculpting, but not everyone is suitable. Men and women of all ages, and with different skin types, can potentially undergo body sculpting treatments, but the following should be taken into consideration when determining if they would be good candidates:
- Healthy lifestyle – someone with overall good health, a healthy lifestyle, and a BMI of less than 30.
- Close to ideal weight – a good candidate would be within 10-20 pounds of their ideal body weight.
- Wants a convenient treatment – since body contouring is a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime, patients can have a half-hour treatment and get back to their normal daily activities right away.
- Realistic expectations – a suitable candidate should know and understand that body sculpting is not used for weight loss, and that the final results will take several weeks to become apparent.
