It used to be that the only way you could remove excess fat around your body was a tough workout. Next was the introduction of surgical liposuction under general anesthesia but for many people the thought of an actual surgical procedure to enhance their body was too extreme. Technology and research have changed this reality over the past few years and now people can now have their bodies sculpted without invasive extraction methods being used.

Why Can’t You Just Work Out To Get Rid of Fat?
Over time areas of stubborn fat collect on your body preventing you from having that toned and fit form you desire. Sure body sculpting classes at the gym can help but they actually cannot break up these layers of fat. Body sculpting procedures are capable of destroying the cells without having to go underneath your skin.
What Are My Sculpting Options?
Non-surgical body contouring in Palm Desert comes with a variety of options.
The newest craze is CoolScultpting. The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are frozen, then die. Your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells over time leaving you looking sculpted.
Smart Lipo is another option where a laser is used to direct heat into the fat cells. The heat from the laser breaks apart the cell membranes without damaging any surrounding tissue it also causes the blood vessels that feed the fat fat cells to coagulate cutting off the blood supply that’s needed to maintain the fat deposit.This option does require a very small incision in order to gain access.
Other options use ultrasound at energy to break up the fat cells instead of a laser. A specialized device sits on the top of the skin and pulses ultrasonic energy to the fat cells in a similar way to the laser. The energy from this ultrasound device causes the cell membranes to break apart destroying the fat cells. The ultrasound doesn’t hurt the skin or any other parts of the body just the fat deposits. What happens with the cells after they are broken down? Your body processes and eliminates fat cells every single day so when fat cells are destroyed by an external device rather than your own body, your body knows how to get rid of the fat.
With all these options you will need to weigh the pros and cons and make a decision best for you. Things to consider are
- location of fat
- amount of fat
- tolerance for discomfort
- local anaethesia required or not
- results immediate or delayed
- risk of complications
