Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Q & A
What is non-invasive fat reduction?
If you have stubborn fat deposits that seem immune to all of your efforts, non-invasive fat reduction provides the perfect answer.
Once you go through puberty, your body carries more or less the same number of fat cells throughout your life. When you gain or lose weight, your existing fat cells increase or decrease in size, respectively, but the number of cells remains the same.
With non-invasive fat reduction technology, the team at The Doc Spa targets and destroys your existing fat cells where you want, permanently reducing their number.
Fat reduction is a body sculpting technique that shouldn’t be considered as a weight loss tool, but rather a tool to put the finishing touches on your weight loss efforts by targeting the areas where fat tends to hang on.
Where can non-invasive fat reduction be used?
Since the fat reduction procedure is non-invasive, the experts at The Doc Shop can target most anywhere you have excess fat, including your:
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
How does non-invasive fat reduction work?
As the name promises, non-invasive fat reduction is exactly that — noninvasive. During your visit, your cosmetic specialist uses the Venus Legacy system to send laser heat energy beneath your skin, without harming the surface area, to destroy the fat cells in targeted areas.
Your fat cells absorb the heat and begin to die off. Then, your body’s lymphatic system takes over and flushes out the debris. The system also spurs a collagen response that tightens the skin in the area.
When should I expect results?
Results after your treatment are gradual, as it takes time for your body to flush away the destroyed fat cells and for new collagen to tighten your skin. Typically, you’ll see optimal results after 6-12 weeks from your last treatment.
The treatments themselves last less than 30 minutes, and you can target several areas at once. The number of treatments you need depends on the size of the area you want to tackle. Some patients only come in once, while others return several times.
If you need a touch up down the road, simply come back in for another easy session.
