No matter how much you diet or exercise, your body can hold pockets of stubborn fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of. Traditionally, more invasive procedures such as liposuction were your only option for slimming these areas. With recent advances in technology, you can now achieve non-invasive fat reduction without going under the knife. Dr. Christine Lee provides cosmetic body contouring services for nonsurgical fat reduction at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek, CA.
Several types of non-invasive fat removal procedures are available to help you achieve the body shape of your dreams:
- Ultrasound: In this FDA-approved treatment, high-intensity sound waves are used to damage fat cells so that they gradually dissolve
- Radiofrequency: This treatment uses controlled energy waves to produce heat deep within the fat cells, which destroys them
- Low level laser therapy: In this FDA-approved therapy, cold laser beams are targeted at fat cells to break them down so they can be absorbed by the body
Surgical body contouring procedures such as liposuction may still be the best choice for some patients, but non-invasive body contouring treatments can be highly effective for many people seeking to eliminate stubborn fat. The body contouring procedure is typically comfortable for the patient, though there may sometimes be a mild burning sensation during the treatment.
After your treatment is complete, you can return to your normal daily activities immediately and you will notice a visible reduction of fat in the treatment areas within two to four months. Depending on your body and the amount of fat in the area being treated, you may need more than one treatment session. The use of any body contouring treatment should always be accompanied by a healthy diet and exercise routine so that you can achieve and maintain the best results.
Dr. Christine Lee takes a personalized approach when she works with patients, taking time to determine the best treatment plan based on their specific needs and preferences. Dr. Lee will discuss your body contouring goals, what will happen during the procedure, and what to realistically expect from the treatment so that you are happy and satisfied with your results.
