Non surgical fat removal is ideal for those who carry stubborn pockets of fat that can’t be shifted with diet and exercise alone. These ‘problem areas’ usually exist in places like the abdomen, flanks, thighs, or upper arms, and can be a source of self-consciousness for both men and women.
Non Surgical Fat Removal With CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting, as the name suggests, utilises cooling technology to freeze fat cells. These cells are then flushed out by the body’s natural processes, resulting in a reduction of fat in the target area. This is called cryolipolysis, and with the new CoolAdvantage Petite applicator can now be used on the knees, banana rolls and chin, as well as the flanks, abdomen, thighs, upper arm, and bra fat. Treatment takes around 35 minutes to complete and is completely non-invasive, reducing downtime required.
Non Surgical Fat Removal With Sculpture
Sculpsure also uses temperature-based technology, but focusses on heating to achieve your non surgical fat removal goal. In a short 25 minute treatment, your area of concern is heated to generate apoptosis, or cell death, to get rid of pockets of fat. As the cells are destroyed, they won’t grow back, meaning that fat won’t be able to be stored in that area. (Please be aware that we no longer provide Sculpsure treatment at PHI Clinic)
Sculpsure and CoolSculpting results are both long term, but require that you keep a healthy diet and exercise regime in order to maintain them, as they do not prevent future weight gain. Neither treatment is suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Often, some people can perceive loose or sagging skin to be extra weight. In cases like this, we would recommend a skin tightening treatment to address the laxity. We offer treatments like Ultraformer, which uses ultrasound technology to encourage collagen synthesis and regeneration for a tightening effect. These are suitable for use on all of the above areas as well as the face.
