When you lose a large amount of weight, excess skin and fat can remain in and around the upper arms, chest, thighs, and torso area. This excess skin can make it difficult for an individual to move on with their new life. This is where body contouring comes in and changes these regions so that the individual no longer has to look at the excess of what used to be there.
Body contouring looks at altering these regions through different types of procedures. You can receive surgical procedures, or you can use non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures to get rid of any stubborn fat cells or regions that have remained.
However, if you are looking for a holistic approach to body contouring in Los Angeles, then you are going to want to go with the non-invasive options. This means that you don’t necessarily need to go under the knife in order to get rid of the extra skin. Here are a few non-invasive options:
Ultrasonic energy can destroy fat cells by permanently breaking down the fat cells which are cleared out by the kidney once broken down. The ultrasonic energy targets the fat cells, the underlying tissue, and tightens the skin. Ultrashape is an option for this type.
Ultrasound waves look at simulating the collagen in your skin which creates more youthful looking skin and reduces the fat cell count. There are a few options for this type like: Liposonix which uses heat to destroy the unwanted fat cells and Exilis which makes the skin smoother.
This type can smooth out loose skin; tighten up sagging skin, and heats up existing collagen within the skin to make it more elastic in nature. By doing this, it also stimulates the growth of new collagen, ensuring that your skin continues to tighten over time reducing how much sag you experience. One option for this is known as Thermage.
Deep Freeze Cells
It is known that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than your skin does, so by freezing the fat cells, it forces them to die off over the course of six weeks to three months. When you kill off the fat cells by freezing them, the body automatically processes them. CoolSculpting is well known in this category.
There are many benefits to taking the holistic treatments for body contouring in Los Angeles, including the lower costs, the fact that there is no pain associated with these treatments, low infection rates, and no downtime after the treatments.
