Losing weight is never easy, and once you’ve finally reached your goal weight, there’s plenty of cause for celebration. Still, just because you’ve lost those pounds, that doesn’t mean you’ve got the sleek, slim contours you were hoping for. In fact, many people find that they’re left with stubborn areas of jiggly fat even after they’ve shed the unwanted pounds.
Noninvasive body contouring is a safe, effective way to get rid of stubborn areas of fat without surgery. At Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center, we use two state-of-the-art body contouring systems — truSculpt® iD and CoolSculpting® — to help women and men slim down, tone up, and look their best. Here’s how noninvasive body contouring can help you finally see the results of all your hard work.
The science of body contouring
For many years, liposuction was the only solution for getting rid of stubborn fat that didn’t respond to diet and weight loss. However, liposuction means surgery, incisions, anesthesia, and months of recovery. Plus, even though liposuction can get rid of unwanted fat, it doesn’t always give smooth, consistent results.
Noninvasive body contouring also gets rid of unwanted fat, but unlike liposuction, these techniques don’t require surgery, incisions, or anesthesia, and there’s no downtime afterward. Nearly 400,000 noninvasive body contouring treatments are performed annually in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, making it a popular choice for both women and men.
At Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center, we use both CoolSculpting and truSculpt iD to get rid of stubborn fat, resulting in sleek, smooth contours you’ll love to show off. While both approaches work to “break down” fat, the way they achieve that goal is very different.
CoolSculpting uses “cold energy” to “freeze” fat cells and break down the cell walls. Then, the CoolSculpting device gently breaks up the fat cells, and your body eliminates them naturally over the weeks that follow. CoolSculpting cools your skin, creating a natural numbing sensation that helps you stay comfortable during treatment.
On the flip side, truSculpt iD uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently heat fat cells. Targeted heat essentially “melts away” fat cell walls, so the remaining debris can be carried away. The truSculpt iD system uses patented delivery technology to make sure the RF energy targets only the fat in the treatment zone while leaving the surrounding tissue (and your skin) unaffected.
Both systems are fully customizable, so your treatment can be adjusted to the area that’s being treated and to the amount of fat that’s being removed. After your treatment, you can expect to see final results within a few weeks after your body naturally eliminates the fatty debris.
It’s important to note that while both systems can eliminate pockets of stubborn fat, neither treatment is a substitute for weight loss, and the systems are not intended to remove large amounts of fat. Ideally, they’re a great treatment option for women and men who are close to or at their ideal weight but who want to get rid of those final few areas of jiggly, unattractive fat.
