Body contouring can be thought of as the final step in achieving the perfect body you have always wanted. Oftentimes, body contouring involves spot fat loss treatments in hard to lose places on your body. For women this is generally in the hips and thighs, while men carry most of their weight in the stomach area. So what is body contouring and how can it help you achieve the perfect body?
What is body contouring?
Body contouring refers to any procedure that helps remove excess skin and fat in problem areas. This also includes tightening skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite. There are many ways to contour your body safely and without the need for risky and painful surgery. There are four primary non-invasive body contouring methods that can help people tighten and tone their body. These include:
Laser-like Lipo (LED treatments)
Infrared Light Lipo
Cryolipolysis (cold lipo)
Radio frequency lipo
All of these methods are available in non-surgical and non-invasive treatments. However, all of them essentially use similar methods for body contouring. Each of these treatments interacts with fat cells. The laser, LED, infrared or radio frequency treatments stimulate fat cells. This stimulation actually melts the fatty portion of the cell. After the fat is melted out of the cell, it goes back into the body to be burned as energy. This is why most body contouring procedures are accompanied by a full body vibration or similar technique to burn off the fat that is melted by the machine.
However, body contouring procedures do not just work to melt fat. When coupled with the fat burning, the skin tightening and cellulite reducing machines will ensure that your body looks tight and contoured once the weight and fat are removed.
What are the benefits of body contouring?
As opposed to surgical treatments, such as surgical liposuction treatments, many of the state-of-the-art body contouring machines can provide an effective treatment without the expense or risks involved with similar surgical treatments.
One of the primary benefits of using a body contouring machine instead of resorting to a surgical procedure is that the body contouring machines can accomplish the same goals without the adverse risk of surgery. These risks include:
Dangers from anesthesia
In addition, body contouring machines have the benefit of a much shorter recovery time, so you can show off your perfect body almost immediately. Since most cosmetic surgeries are not covered by medical insurance, the cost difference between a surgical procedure and a non-invasive body contouring machine is exorbitant. The starting cost of liposuction is $2,000 and up for one area on your body. Comparatively, six laser lipo LED treatments are usually no more than $600-700 and can be found for as low as $300. Non-invasive treatments have also been shown to be more effective in skin tightening to get you the taught and trim body you desire. This means that not only will you reduce fat in problem areas, but your skin will look natural after the treatments.
Whether you are looking to tighten your body, lose weight, reduce fat in problem areas or eliminate cellulite, there is a body contouring service just for you. Body contouring is that last step that will help you get the perfect beach body and keep it.
