Looking into a mirror can have a negative impact on us, if we don’t quite like what we see in that mirror. Sometimes we just need a pick-me-up – something that’s going to lift our spirit – boost our self-confidence. We have the perfect solution: non-surgical body-sculpting treatments, such as VelaShape®. Boost your self-confidence with body sculpting in Coral Gables.
What Is Body-Sculpting?
Body-sculpting, also called body contouring, targets stubborn fat, and it does so without surgery. You know those areas of fat that refuse to budge, even after you’ve been exercising and eating right, religiously? “Love handles,” “bra bulge,” and double chins immediately come to mind. Treatments can also help reshape your abdomen, thighs, bottom, thighs, and upper arms. These non-invasive contouring treatments target those areas by destroying the fat cells.
How Do Body-Sculpting Treatments Work?
Methods of body-sculpting vary. Some of them involve freezing fat cells, also called cryolipolysis, while others use penetrated heat through ultrasound therapy, low-level laser therapy, and radiofrequency. They all break down fat cells which are eventually flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system, within a few months. That’s when you’ll see the full effect of the treatments. The number of treatments varies, dependent on the particular method you use, and your desired results.
Can I Lose Weight with Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting or body contouring is not designed to help you lose weight. It is not a weight loss program. And who makes a good candidate for body-sculpting? In general, the treatments work best for people with a normal body mass index (BMI) of between 18.5 and 24.9.
VelaShape® 3 is a Fan Favorite
One of the popular fat removal treatments at our med spa is the VelaShape® 3 Cellulite and Body Fat Reduction treatment. This non-invasive body contouring, slimming, and fat reduction treatment is a combination of infrared and radio frequency energies with contact cooling technology. It tackles fatty deposits on the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and underarms. It also addresses cellulite, and in only 1 session.
Recovery After Body-Sculpting Treatments
Because body-sculpting treatments are non-invasive, there’s minimal downtime – though you may experience some redness, bruising, swelling, or tenderness. There is no scarring.
You can return to work or resume your daily activities, immediately after the treatment.
Body-Sculpting V/S Liposuction
When it comes to comparing body-sculpting to liposuction, there is one big similarity: they both reduce fat from target areas. But the similarities end there. For starters – liposuction is invasive surgery that requires anesthesia, and not everyone will qualify as a patient – especially people with heart issues. Plus – recovery may take several days. Body-sculpting is non-surgical, with no downtime.
