While plastic surgery and surgical options used to be the only method of body sculpting used, lasers and new technologies are giving non-surgical, no downtime time options to men and women. In the 1980’s & 90’s lipo-suction and tummy tucks reigned the supreme way to lose fat, inches, and tighten skin, but the 2000’s have ushered in non-surgical procedures in a big way.
At our Orlando medical spa Winter Park Laser & Anti-Aging Center we have seen a surge in non-surgical body sculpting treatments in the last 5 years.
So what non-surgical body sculpting options are available?
One of the first treatments to the market was Syneron’s Velashape, they now have Velashape I, II, and III to treat cellulite and tighten skin. available. Velashape technology utilizes bi-polar radio frequency, it treats the deeper tissue, offering a measurable reduction in fat layers, circumference and the upper layers of the skin, resulting in cellulite reduction, the smoothing of the skin’s tone and texture, inches lost, and noticeable reshaping of the treated area in 5-6 treatments. Usually, an infrared thermometer is used to ensure your body heats up to 104 degrees-the temperature it takes to melt fat. Most people describe the treatments as feeling like a warm deep tissue massage. The Velashape II is 20% more powerful than its predecessor Velashape I giving you shorter treatments, with better, longer lasting results in fewer treatments. This treatment has no discomfort, is non-invasive and requires no down-time.
There are now three non-surgical procedures on the market that offer permanent fat reduction and are a great non-surgical alternative to lipo-suction. They are Zeltiq® (cool-sculpting), Liposonix®, and TruSculpt™.
TruSculpt™ is the first RF Non-invasive procedure to give permanent surgical type results, previously only available through cosmetic surgery. Using radio frequencies, the practitioner deep-heats tissue over large areas of the body. The raised heat temperature stimulates cells, targeting areas of fat, and creates apoptosis or slow fat cell death. The fat eliminating process begins with the truSculpt treatment, but once activated it continues on its own for In only 2 treatments on average, patients can quickly see permanent results in their appearance, such as smaller mass, tighter skin and less dimpling. TruSculpt™ can be used on any area where fat deposits can accumulate, such as the neck (“turkey neck”), under the arms, around the buttocks, thighs, love handles, back, or abdomen.
