Fat Reduction Treatments: Just in time for summer
Spring has arrived so if you’ve been putting it off, it’s time to start thinking about bathing suit season! Now is the ideal time to start getting that beach body into shape. We have some awesome fat reduction treatments that will help you work on those pesky areas, everybody has them, that just don’t seem to go away no matter how much you workout and eat a healthy diet. At WDC we have not one, but TWO devices that can help you do just that.
WDC was the first to introduce both Coolsculpting and Liposonix to the Wilmington market and we have also been recognized as the top Coolsculpting provider in 2011.
What can Liposonix and Coolsculpting do for you?
Both are devices that treat unwanted fat in areas like love handles, thighs, abdomen, and upper back fat. While they are both doing a similar thing, Coolsculpting is based off the insight of Cryolipolysis®, the idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue, while Liposonix uses heat to generate acoustic waves that travel through tissue. It penetrates through the skin layers into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissue, allowing the waves to quickly heat and destroy fat.
What is so appealing about these procedures?
Both procedures are great options for patients at their ideal weight, but just have those stubborn fat areas that won’t go. The best part is, that there is NO downtime and NO surgery required! There is some risk of bruising on certain areas, so it’s best to do the treatment before you’re in a bathing suit. Both procedures also take a full three months to see the optimal results, which is why now is the best time to get in.
What kind of results can I expect?
On average, each Coolsculpting procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients. In a clinical study, the average waistline reduction after a single one-hour treatment with Liposonix was about one inch, which is typically equal to one dress or pant size. Full results are usually seen in 8 to 12 weeks, though individual results will vary.
As some of you may know, we now also have Cellfina, which is used to treat cellulite on the thighs and butt area. Combing these procedures is sure to get you feeling great in your bathing suit!
Remember, we also have free cosmetic consults where we can take a look at the areas and from our experience determine which procedure will best suit your wants and goals.
