Noninvasive Body Contouring on the Rise

Coolsculpting and vShape Radio Frequency: understanding the most popular fat reduction treatments on the market today

What does body contouring mean anyways? Basically, body contouring is any procedure that alters the shape of the body and improves the tone of its underlying tissue.

Body contouring services are a solution to fat removal, not weight loss. It’s for individuals that are in tune with healthy habits (for the most part); those trying to make healthier food choices and understand that exercise should be part of their life for a healthy mind and body.

So, what’s the difference between fat removal and weight loss? When you lose weight, the volume (size) of your fat cells decreases but the quantity of fat cells stays the same. Their size grows back again as you regain weight. The goal of fat removal, however, is to actually kill fat cells so they cannot grow in size again.

Coolsculpting is the #1 treatment for removing fat. Using a process called Cryolipolysis, targeted fat cells are eliminated for good so you will have fewer fat cells in the treated area, permanently. Coolsculpting is a popular non-surgical treatment that gently freezes fat cells underneath the skin without affecting the surrounding tissue. Once the fat cells freeze, they eventually die and are removed from the area using the body’s natural metabolic process.

One huge advantage of Coolsculpting is it eliminates the risk of surgery. No anesthesia, no incisions and no downtime (unlike traditional liposuction surgeries). During the treatment, you can actually relax and listen to music, watch a movie, meditate, read or work. Coolsculpting is FDA cleared as a safe and effective fat removal technique that delivers permanent results.

Radio frequency has been around since 1928 and is one the most effective and proven technologies available today. It not only works on reducing stubborn fat, it also tightness skin by rebuilding collagen and fibroblast that are lost with age. It’s so reliable that most manufacturers have incorporated radio frequency technology into their devices.

Alma Laser’s newest radio frequency device, vShape, is the most powerful and effective by far. It brings advanced technology that more precisely controls depth of skin penetration and much higher energy levels than its closest competitor. By quickly liquefying the fat and shrinking fat cells, this advancement delivers impressive results even for the reduction of pesky cellulite.

The benefits of Vshape are easily summed up: it’s reliable and proven. With Alma, radio frequency delivers more superior results than ever before.

Non-invasive fat removal does have its limits. These procedures are designed for people who have stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, these procedures are not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. They are, however, a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

For most of us, the motivation to workout or eat healthy slowly declines when we don’t see results. Losing that last inch or so can be really hard and discouraging. Non-invasive fat removal is a great incentive to get you back in the gym because you’ll see results. It’s also a good motivator to swap out french fries and pizza for a healthier diet.
