Weight loss programs that include doctor-supervised diet and exercise plans are the most effective ways to lose weight. However, you can complement your efforts with non-surgical weight loss methods to sculpt your body more quickly. Dr. Briones, serving Mt. Kisco and the surrounding Westchester County, is a leading provider of non-surgical fat reduction options that use laser, ultrasound, and cryolipolysis technology.
Laser Fat Reduction
You may be familiar with the term “laser liposuction,” which combines conventional liposuction with laser technology. This involves liquefying the fat to suction it more gently out of the body, and it also stimulates collagen production to tighten the skin. The problem with laser lipo is that it’s still surgery, which many patients prefer to avoid. Instead, consider a noninvasive method of laser fat reduction. This innovative technology doesn’t require any incisions or recovery time. Instead, the laser safely penetrates the skin to destroy the fat cells underneath, causing the body to naturally eliminate the fat. The result is an impressive loss of inches around the treated areas, which may include the abdomen, hips, and thighs.
Ultrasound Fat Reduction
Another popular method for reducing fat without surgery is the use of ultrasound technology. Like the laser method, ultrasound fat reduction doesn’t require anesthetics, incisions, or a recovery period. It’s a safe, FDA-approved method that directs pulses of ultrasound energy at the target areas. This energy selectively destroys the fat cells, without harming the surrounding healthy tissue. Best results are typically seen with three to four sessions. Patients report a virtually discomfort-free experience, with no telltale redness or swelling afterward.
Cryotherapy Fat Reduction
Cryotherapy, or cold therapy, is available under the brand name CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to direct intense cold at the fat cells. The fat cells freeze and die, and are gradually eliminated from the body. CoolSculpting can be used to treat pockets of stubborn fat on the thighs, abdomen, hips, and even under the chin. Although fat cells can’t come back once they’re destroyed, it is possible for the remaining fat cells to grow larger. Sticking to a healthy diet and workout program will help you maintain your slim physique.
