How can I tighten aging skin, reduce cellulite, and lose inches by the Holidays?
With the aging process comes the realization that body changes and problem areas, that seem to worsen year after year, are inevitable. While many people may be displeased with their body image, not many are willing to risk aggressive or painful procedures to get results. Diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle should always be a starting point, but sometimes results are desired more quickly and often times a “clean-up” is necessary to tighten skin or contour after a significant amount of weight loss.
There are a number of non-invasive and highly effective procedures that are available to individuals that will enable them to achieve their desired results with no downtime and little discomfort. Laser body contouring has been available for many years and continues to improve each year; this combined with other types of body contouring procedures can achieve significant results.
If “de-bulking” is necessary or if large areas of fat are present, fat cell freezing with CoolSculpting® is recommended, first. Often this will produce desired results, if adequate treatments are performed. When problem areas are in the lower portion of the body, such as thighs and knees, or small areas like arms are the focus, then laser skin tightening and circumferential reduction is favored.
The newest laser device that achieves this is the FDA-cleared VelaShape III®. This powerful deep thermal energy irons out cellulite, tightens skin and reduces size in just about three treatments. This is a no downtime, comfortable, deep therapeutic body contouring treatment that delivers updated enhanced clinical protocols that offers consistent results that can be reproduced time after time. CoolSculpting and VelaShape III may be combined for even more amazing changes. Other devices, such as fractional RF Sublative lasers can be added to erase stretch marks or smooth knee wrinkles.
