Now that it’s finally under ninety degrees and Starbucks has our favorite pumpkin latte back, we are all wondering how to get our bodies in shape for the holidays! While diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle should always be a starting point, sometimes results are desired more quickly or if you have lost significant amount of weight some “clean-up” to tighten skin or contour is necessary. There are a number of non-invasive and highly effective procedures 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 – watch for my next blog post that will cover these procedures.
