If you are in the habit of routinely exercising and watching what you eat, you would expect such efforts to pay off in all the best ways possible. And, for some people, this is exactly what happens. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. You may find yourself dealing with stubborn fat that just won’t go away no matter what you do. If you have this problem, you might be tempted to try trendy diets, grueling exercise routines, or even unproven solutions that you find online. With body fat reduction treatments, however, you can avoid the hit-and-miss results you could end up with if you opt for other fat elimination methods.
What is Body Fat Reduction?
The purpose of body fat reduction is to create a desirable appearance in a certain area of your body where there is unwanted fat. These fat dissolving and skin tightening procedures are generally designed to be less invasive than other procedures that can accomplish similar goals, such as liposuction. If the goal is to remove stubborn fat and not a large amount of extra weight, like what often happens after losing large amounts of weight, the fat cells are often treated without surgery.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Stubborn fat can be located just about anywhere on your body, but it’s usually especially irritating when it’s in visible areas. For women, areas affected typically include the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Women can also have problems with so-called love handles, referring to deposits of unwanted fat along the waistline. Areas affected for both men and women may also include the stomach/belly area, the arms, and the back area.
How is Body Fat Reduction Performed?
Since large amounts of excess fat aren’t being removed when stubborn fat is the reason for seeking body fat reduction treatments, the methods used are usually done in a way that eliminates or minimizes downtime. Such procedures can be performed on an outpatient or same-day basis.
The details of each body fat reduction treatment plan vary. Popular treatments include truSculpt® iD, Thermage®, UltraShape Power, and EMSCULPT®. Here at Procerus Skin Care, we can customize these treatments according to the patient’s wants and needs.
