Many men and women are troubled with stubborn pockets of fat that even with regular exercise and a healthy diet they cannot lose. For many years the only option to treat these areas was to opt for traditional surgical techniques. However, many patients were not happy to have these procedures as they considered it too aggressive. After years of research and study, there is finally a solution to help people regain their confidence. Non-Surgical Liposuction holds the answer.
Non-Surgical Liposuction Techniques
Low level laser energy
Low level laser energy reduces the stability of adipose cell membranes, allowing cells to release their stores of fat without damaging the cell, because the fat is released into the extracellular space and the fractured fat dissolves through the lymphatic system within a few weeks. Patients are encouraged to exercise regularly after the procedure, as the exercise increases lymph flow and is thought to also promote the use of the lipids as an energy source. Also, adequate hydration after the treatment is strongly encouraged to speed the process of fat and lymphatic drainage
Focused thermal ultrasound techniques work by raising the tissue temperature, resulting in coagulative fracture of adipocytes, without affecting the surrounding vessels and nerves. Passive heating of the skin will induce collagen remodelling to a limited degree.
Radio-frequency devices work by producing an alternating flow, which creates an electric field over the skin. The electric field shifts polarity millions of times per second that causes a change in orientation of charged particles, which leads to fracturing of the fat, which will dissolve gradually through the lymphatic system.
Cryolipolysis - Fat Freezing
Cryolipolysis is the term for using cryogenics to induce lipolysis by freezing the fat cells, which are permanently destroyed due to the cooling of subcutaneous fat, which induces lipolysis, the breaking down of the fat cells.
VelaShape - Combined Radiofrequency and Infrared
Velashape is a well-known, safe, clinically proven technology, combining radiofrequency and infra-Red energy with a sophisticated vacuum mechanism to target and heat fatty and cellulite tissues resulting in some fat reduction for smoother and tighter skin.
The future of body contouring
Nearly all areas of the body can be improved with Non-Surgical Liposuction and it is possible to treat more than one area at the same time. The best machines for these treatments are SculpSure, 3D LipoSure, Advanced Velashape, Tri-Lipo and Tri-Active Laser. Some results can be seen immediately after the treatment; however, some treatments may require 2-3 sessions before significant results are seen.
