2 Weapons for Fighting Fat in 2019

January 2, 2019

One of the most prevalent concerns among both men and women – regardless of age, background, or ethnicity – is poor body image because of excess weight. No matter the cause for weight gain, many Americans struggle with excess weight, causing them to feel insecure and ashamed of their physique. Diet and exercise are, of course, the best and healthiest solutions for targeting fat, but results from diet and exercise alone can be uncertain, especially when coupled with advanced age, pre-existing medical conditions, or genetics. When a little additional help is needed to eliminate unwanted body fat, consider two non-invasive body-sculpting methods: CoolSculpting and Vanquish.

Using Cooling Energy to Destroy Fat Cells

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body-contouring procedure designed to eliminate unwanted fat through a process called cryolipolysis. The CoolSculpting device targets fat cells throughout the abdomen, arms, inner and outer thighs, chin area, and flanks with vacuum suction and cooling technology. This process ensures that problem areas are dealt with effectively without harming any surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting specifically targets the areas of the body that are most resilient to diet and exercise, such as the love handles and the dreaded muffin top. As fat cells are extremely susceptible to cold, only these cells are targeted by the device, leaving surrounding skin, organs, and muscle tissue unaffected. Once fat cells are destroyed, they are naturally expelled from the body, allowing surrounding tissue to condense and tighten. This leaves the body looking slimmer and more contoured without the scarring or recovery time associated with surgical procedures. CoolSculpting procedures generally last one to three hours and require absolutely no downtime following treatment. Some bruising, redness, tingling, or numbing may occur directly following the procedure, but these side effects are mild and last only a short period.

Eliminating Unwanted Fat with Radio Frequencies

Another body-sculpting option is Vanquish, a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure that uses radio frequencies to permanently destroy fat cells and naturally expel them from the body. Vanquish is a completely contact-free procedure that harnesses heat energy through the form of radio frequencies. These radio frequencies are emitted in controlled bands of energy to heat fat cells to 120 degrees. Vanquish is meant to specifically target the midsection and offers dramatic results in as little as four treatments. There was a time when fat reduction could only be realized through painful and invasive surgical procedures. Fortunately, technological advancements have made it possible for patients to experience beautiful results with significantly less discomfort.
