Body sculpting treatments: Do they work?
Body sculpting treatments aren’t new in 2022 and while they continue to remain a mainstay in the list of aesthetic treatment options, many are skeptical on how effective they really are. One of the common misconceptions about body sculpting treatments is that they are a quick-fix to weight loss.
On the contrary, these treatments are meant to complement your weight loss progress and to get into the best shape and form as possible, as you continue to stick to your weight loss diet and exercise regime.
Bearing in mind that not all body treatments are created equal, you’ll need to understand what each body treatment aims to do for your body and how it can be of benefit to you.
First of all, what are body sculpting treatments?
For the uninitiated, body sculpting treatments are non-invasive procedures that aim to reshape the body and help it appear leaner, with better tone and definition. Depending on the type of technology used, body sculpting treatments can assist with fat loss, skin tightening and even cellulite reduction. Read on to find out how they can work to help with your weight loss goals.
#1 Fat loss
Many people think that working out frequently and dieting intelligently can eliminate fat cells. Sorry to burst your bubble, but this isn’t quite the case. The weight loss you’re experiencing through diet and exercise is due to fat cells reducing in size. In fact, the amount of fat cells you have pretty much stays the same once you pass your teenage years.
If you’re looking to eliminate fat cells once and for all, Coolshape is a body treatment that would be right up your alley. Utilising the scientific principle of cryolipolysis, fat cells in the targeted areas are banished using extreme cold temperature.
#2 Skin tightening
A skin tightening procedure is exactly what the name says it is. Weight loss, pregnancy and even aging can all contribute to looser, saggier skin. If loose skin is not severe, non-invasive skin tightening procedures are available to you, such as Thermage that uses radiofrequency technology.
The main aim of this treatment is to help stimulate collagen production while tightening existing collagen. Just as collagen in our faces help to skin stay firm and taut, sufficient collagen stores in the body does the same, providing a solid structure to support the framework of your skin.
#3 Cellulite reduction
Unfairly, cellulite occurs more in women than in men, and it looks the way it does (dimpled and lumpy) because of the way fat bulges over weak connective tissue.
While it’s nothing to be ashamed of, we do understand that it can be something you aren’t comfortable with being a permanent fixture of your body, especially when we all know how tricky it can be to get rid of cellulite.
Cellulite by Thermage can help to smoothen and contour the treated areas using volumetric heating from radiofrequency energy, restoring skin elasticity.
