Body contouring is usually done to remove the access fat from the body. At VCare skin clinic, you can get nonsurgical body contouring/nonsurgical fat reduction in two ways, one is Cryolipolysis and Non-surgical liposuction (or Radiofrequency lipolysis).
The Body Contouring can be done on:
- Thighs (saddlebags)
- Abdomen (love handles)
- Hips (flanks)
- Upper arm
- Chest, and
Please note: Over bony areas, only Radio Frequency skin tightening can be done.
Cryolipolysis also known as CoolSculpting or fat freezing is FDA approved treatment used to destroy fat cells. Its principle relies on controlled cooling, here the target cells are exposed to near 4 Celsius for the non-invasive localized reduction of fat deposits in order to reshape body contours. This kills the fat tissue which is eventually flushed out of your body through the lymphatic system without damaging the overlying skin. Once these cells are gone, they won’t reappear.
Non-surgical liposuction techniques use Radiofrequency lipolysis. It involves UltraShape and BTL Vanquish ME which are nonsurgical, FDA-cleared procedures that use ultrasound technology for body contouring. Here the devices are applied directly to the skin of the treatment area and do not employ injections. It is very gentle to the skin when treating stubborn pockets of fat and involves little to no discomfort. It can be applied to the abdomen and flanks. Each treatment takes one hour on average, and you should be able to go back to your daily activities immediately. Multiple treatments are usually advised by the leading dermatologists. Although the fat loss is more subtle with non-surgical lipolysis techniques compared to surgical liposuction, non-surgical lipolysis techniques have advantages including reduced risk, cost and healing time.
