Body Contouring without Going Under the Knife
Did you know that you can transform your body without going under the knife? While liposuction has been the gold standard in fat removal for years now, it definitely has its drawbacks. First and foremost, a lot of people simply don’t want to have surgery.
Not only do some people have a natural apprehension for going under the knife, it’s also a big commitment. Liposuction patients need to plan for a week’s time off of work as well as restricted activities during the six weeks following the procedure. Although the results are worth it for many people, liposuction isn’t right for everyone.
Looking for an alternative to liposuction? Here are your options for body contouring without going under the knife.
Getting Rid of Body Fat
Cooltech is an incredible new alternative to liposuction. This painless, non-invasive procedure gets rid of body fat without needles or scalpels. Cooltech works by freezing your body fat. This innovative technology is able to pinpoint fat reserves to target them without affecting the surrounding skin.
Rather than having fat manually removed, Cootech uses your body’s own ability to eliminate waste and toxins. After a Cooltech treatment, the fat cells that have been frozen will simply move through your body naturally while being transported by your lymphatic system.
Because they are non-invasive, Cooltech treatments are comfortable and painless. At the Medispa Institute in Dee Why, we offer iPads so you can relax, browse the web, or catch up on emails while a trained technician goes to work. After the treatment, Cooltech patients are able to go back to their normal routine with no restrictions.
After a Cooltech treatment, results begin to become visible 15 to 20 days later, with full results appearing around three months after your Cooltech treatment. The best part of all is that the results are permanent!
Banish Your Double Chin
Belkyra, or Kybella as it is called in some countries, is an injectable treatment that can eliminate your double chin. This treatment also uses your body’s natural ability to eliminate toxins and waste.
With Belkyra, you receive an ejection that will break down the membranes of your fat, which will disconnect them. Once they are freed, your body will naturally wash the fat out. It’s a safe and painless process that will leave you with a permanently more defined jawline.
It’s important to realise that even a liposuction can’t eliminate cellulite, nor can Cooltech. That’s why VelaShape III is such an exciting technology. Often done in conjunction with other fat removal treatments to create a more svelte and smooth look, VelaShape III can remove cellulite on your arms, back, neck, abdomen, flanks, thighs, or buttocks.
Like Belkyra and Cooltech, VelaShape is a painless procedure with no downtime. You can simply relax during your brief treatment then leave ready to go back your normal day.
Before committing to a treatment, it’s important to understand that body contouring treatments are not for weight loss. They provide targeted results rather than all-over slimming. Even more importantly, you should have a healthy diet and exercise routine already in place before seeking treatment. While the results are permanent, the benefits will be undone if you gain weight after treatment.
