Summer is fast-approaching, and you’ve been committed to working towards the body you want to show off. Frequent exercise and a healthy diet have done you good, but you’ve noticed yourself hitting a weight loss plateau. Now what can you do?
For those experiencing this issue, body shaping is an effective option. These treatments are not an alternative to diet and exercise, but they can help improve the hard work you’ve already done! The experts at Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care offer body shaping options that can help get you ready for bikini season.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment that delivers controlled cooling to your desired target area (thighs, abdomen, flanks, double chin, bra fat, back fat, upper arms or underneath the buttocks). The cooling feature freezes fat cells, causing them to die and be eliminated through your body’s natural processes. Rather than shrinking fat cells, they’re gone for good with CoolSculpting! The result is a long-term, more sculpted you.
During treatment, controlled cooling is delivered through a gel pad and applicator while a vacuum is used to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup. This process won’t hurt, but you may feel intense cold, numbing and mild pulling or tugging.
Another benefit of CoolSculpting is that it’s downtime-free, meaning you can return to work and any other activities you have planned after your procedure!
On the opposite end of the spectrum, BodyFX utilizes deep tissue heating to contour and shape the body. Fat reduction can be achieved on the abdomen, love handles, hips, thighs and more—also improving the appearance of cellulite and dimpled skin. BodyFX is the non-invasive way to improve your body’s contour!
During a procedure, underlying fat tissue is heated, forced to contract, and then the body is shaped with a combination of controlled energy and a vacuum. This system is the first and only one to use focused, radio-frequency energy to target fat while stimulating collagen and tightening the dermis. You can expect to feel a warm sensation and light pulling during a BodyFX treatment, and like CoolSculpting, there is absolutely no downtime required.
