Many of us spend a lot of time working on our physiques to achieve the ideal toned and contoured body. But sometimes it seems that no matter how much we pound the treadmill and regardless of how many diets we try, we just can not lose those stubborn areas of fat. This leads many people to seek body contouring surgery such as liposuction or tummy tucks.
However, procedures like this are invasive, can be painful, and have an associated downtime that can be frankly inconvenient. Body contouring refers to procedures that change the shape, or contour, of a part of your body by removing or tightening excess skin and underlying fat, and the great news is that body contouring can be achieved without the need for painful surgery.
Coolsculpting and truSculpt Flex Treatments
Some things in life are made to go together: salt and pepper, gin and tonic, and when it comes to body contouring without surgery, Coolsculpting and truSculpt Flex are the unrivalled champions of fat removal and body toning. The Batman and Robin of aesthetics, these treatments will produce incredible results quickly, painlessly, and effectively without having to go under the knife.
What Is Coolsculpting?
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to remove fat cells from specific areas of the body using different size applicators. Stubborn fat deposits are a common occurrence and can be difficult to shift through exercise and a healthy diet alone. A lot of people suffer from this issue, due to the natural distribution of fat cells. Some areas will have more fat cells than others, therefore making it more difficult to shift unwanted fat in these places.
Coolsculpting can treat many areas of stubborn fat deposits including:
- Upper arms
- Chin area
- Love handles
- Back bulges
- Bra area bulges
- Male chest
With a 83% patient satisfaction rate on realself.com, CoolSculpting is a popular treatment which delivers effective results to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat. There are a plethora of other benefits of having CoolSculpting though, not just the great results. The elimination of surgery, anaesthesia, and excessive downtime, as well as the longevity of the effects of treatment, also appeal to many.
What Is truSculpt Flex?
truSculpt Flex works by stimulating muscle tissue. This action creates a contraction of the isolated area, which in turn mimics the same movement as a contraction created through voluntary strength training at the gym. However, unlike traditional strength training, you are able to take part in these sessions if you have some weakness or restrictions in movement, so it is suitable for most people, no matter what level of fitness you have.
You are likely to see an increase in muscle density and growth at a much faster rate than you might with heavy lifting and weight training. This is because the electrical pulses created by the truSculpt handpiece are more intense than physical exercise, causing the muscles to work harder and therefore allowing the treatment to give rapid results.
Three alternative directions are used throughout treatments, which help to avoid muscle fatigue and soreness, which often occurs in traditional weight lifting and strength training. truSculpt Flex can tone up to eight different areas around the body to achieve stunning sculpted arms, firm buttocks, toned legs, and a strengthened, defined core.
Body Contouring Without Surgery
We recommend having the Coolsculpting procedure first to remove unwanted pockets of fat, then 4-6 weeks later you can begin your truSculpt flex sessions. Most people see the best results after four treatments, which take around 45 minutes per session. Following your initial treatments, we usually recommend that you have one session every 3-6 months, in order to maintain your results.
The beauty of this winning combination is that the treatments are noninvasive, comfortable and there is little downtime as well as the aesthetically pleasing results. To find out if you are a suitable candidate for the Coolsculpting, truSculpt Flex duo treatment you can book a consultation with one of our highly skilled therapists who will discuss your suitability and explain both procedures in detail.
