If you’ve recently started looking into body contouring treatments, you’ll know just how many options there are out there. So, how do you decide which one is right for you?
There are a number of different factors that play a role in determining which body contouring treatment is right for you, which is why it’s always a good idea to consult with a professional first – you may even discover that you need a combination of treatments to achieve your desired result.
With that being said, there’s nothing wrong with understanding the basics before you schedule a consultation.
Top 5 Body Contouring Treatments Explained
Using ultrasound technology, LipoBlast treatments are non-invasive and designed to completely eradicate fat cells that are located in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. This treatment is ideal for patients who have moderate fat accumulation and want a more contoured appearance. It also works really well on large areas of the body such as the buttocks and stomach. The LipoBlast machine emits macro-focused ultrasound energy via a square shaped applicator, which reduces the circumference of the treated area.
This revolutionary procedure uses controlled freezing to permanently destroy unwanted fat cells across various areas of the body. Once the fat cells have been destroyed using cold temperatures, they are gradually eliminated from the body, reducing the size of the treated area. Patients who are at their ideal weight but can’t get rid of stubborn pockets of fat are ideal candidates for this procedure. The good news is that once the fat cells have been eliminated, they can’t regrow.
Liposculpture is one of the most popular treatments at the Dr Zurek plastic surgery clinic in Kogarah and is seen as a slightly less invasive version of liposuction. Designed to remove excess fat from different areas of the body, Liposculpture is performed under local anaesthetic, which means you’ll be awake during the procedure but you won’t be able to feel a thing.
- Ultrasound Fat Reduction
This is another popular, non-invasive treatment that can be used to smooth out any bumps such as those caused by cellulite. During this treatment, ultra-focused ultrasound is used to dissolve unwanted fat cells, which gives the skin a much smoother appearance. Once the content of the fat cells has been disrupted, it will be eliminated via the liver. Patients can expect a warm sensation across the treated area during each session.
Using a laser technology system that combines both Ultra-long ND: Yag and non-ablative Er: Yag modes, TightSculpt treatments are able to eliminate centimetres of fat, while tightening the skin at the same time. This treatment also utilises heat, which is why patients will feel a warming sensation during their procedure. Along with permanent fat reduction, patients can also expect a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. This modern body contouring treatment was also designed to stimulate the production of collagen, which rejuvenates the skin while reducing unwanted fat.
