Weight loss is a major accomplishment, and the pride you feel is immense. But, many people experience excess skin left over after and major weight loss and are frustrated. You may wonder about what non-surgical options for fat reduction there are and whether they really work. The answer comes in the form of body contouring, which can drastically improve the shape and tone of your underlying tissue supporting fat and skin. It can help remove excess sagging fat and skin, so your weight loss hard work will really show!
Many new technology advances have made improvements in the outcomes of body contouring. There are several non-invasive procedures that can be used alone or in conjunction with liposuction, to achieve your desired outcome.
Vanquish is a new, revolutionary procedure in permanent fat reduction offering painless and surgery-free treatments that require no downtime. This treatment utilizes radiofrequency to target fat layers and permanently remove fat cells. Treatment combines well with SmoothShapes and can also enhance liposuction results. Approximately one to two treatments per week for a total of six weeks are recommended.
Vanquish is an FDA-approved technology to be used for fat reduction that is totally non-invasive. The Vanquish device won’t even touch the skin and is a painless procedure. Many of our patients start seeing results immediately after the treatments. We generally recommend patients have four to five treatments spaced over several weeks. Vanquish is one of the most effective ways to lose belly fat quickly, and the results are often permanent.
Exilis is an FDA-approved, non-surgical device that can help reduce fat and tighten the skin on the body. It improves the skin’s quality without downtime. The energy used during treatment heats the deepest layers of the skin causing fat cells to shrink as the skin contracts whereby stimulating new collagen.
Exilis is one of the most powerful non-invasive treatments for skin laxity available. It’s completely non-invasive and has been proven to produce noticeably firmer and younger-looking skin using radio frequency technology.
Exilis makes a great supplement to a liposuction surgery to firm-up loose skin. Treatments take about 20-30 minutes depending on how much skin you need treated. It’s a painless procedure, usually administered in 4-6 sessions every week or every other week. Results last around six months, at which time it’s recommended to come in for an additional treatment and check-up to see how your skin is doing.
