Do you have some stubborn fat and bulges that do not go away even with a healthy diet an active lifestyle? There are many treatments available to help you say goodbye to them and one of these is fat reduction.
Fat reduction may often be thought of as just weight loss, but there is actually a difference between the two. What is usually known as weight loss, is a decrease in the size of our fat cells. While it does result in a lighter you, the number of fat cells actually remains the same. Fat reduction, on the other hand, targets and gets rid of fat cells permanently.
There are different non-surgical, no downtime fat reduction treatments available and your doctor is the best person to advise which treatment is the most suitable for you.
Vanquish for fat reduction
Vanquish™ accomplishes fat reduction by using thermal energy from radiofrequency (RF) waves to destroy fat cells. This method of contactless, deep-tissue heating can remove stubborn fat in areas such as arms, abdomen, flanks, and thighs. The optimum temperature for killing fat cells is 40-42°c. Vanquish achieves this temperature in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, which is located under the skin. Once these fat cells die, they will eventually pass out naturally from the body.
Because Vanquish has no downtime and is non-invasive, you can go right back to your daily routine after the treatment. Studies have shown an average of 29% reduction of fat thickness and 4-5cm reduction of waist circumference after four treatments.
The treatment process is comfortable too, because all you will experience is an even warming of the areas being treated on. Don’t be surprised if you fall asleep, since the sensation is so snug!
Targeting stubborn fat with CoolSculpting
While Vanquish kills fat cells with thermal energy, CoolSculpting achieves the same result by freezing fat cells with cooling temperature. Like Vanquish, CoolSculpting is also a non-invasive treatment, so there’s no need to stress about downtime.
