Factors to consider
Caloric intake – when you eat more calories than you burn, your body stores the excess in fat cells. Over time, these fat cells swell up, creating the fatty deposits in the thighs.
Fatty foods – fatty foods contain more calories than healthier options, so eating fatty foods often can lead to weight gain, affecting areas like the thighs.
Refined carbs – refined carbs include white bread, white rice, and other processed foods that have been changed to make them more appealing. These can spur overeating, as they make you crave more carbs.
Gender – women are more likely to suffer from thigh fat due to hormones that signal for fat to be stored around the bum and thighs (inner thigh and outer thigh)
Dehydration – when you don’t drink enough water, your body becomes dehydrated and retains water to conserve supplies, making your thighs, and other parts of your body, appear fat.

The device we use cools the skin during treatment to reduce any discomfort that may be felt, and up to four applicators can be used in separate areas during one ...Read on Book consultation
