Losing weight is such an empowering journey for so many people, and the toning up that follows can instil self-confidence in even the most timid of people. This can make it even more frustrating when you are left with stubborn pockets of fat that can’t be shifted by a healthy diet and regular exercise regime. It can be easy to fall back into bad habits when this happens, and invasive procedures like liposuction can seem for some a step too far. This is when non surgical lipo procedures are best used, for those last areas of fat that don’t seem as though they can be shifted.
Types of non surgical lipo procedures
Cryolipolysis / CoolSculpting – this uses freezing technology to cause targeted fat cell death for reduction in the amount of these cells in one area. It can be used to treat love handles, back fat, stomach fat, thigh fat, upper arm fat, chin fat, rolls below the buttocks, and the area above the knees for a contouring effect. This can take between 35 and 60 minutes per cycle, with the amount of cycles needed varying from person to person.
Laser Lipo / Sculpsure – on the other side of the spectrum we have non surgical laser lipo, which uses controlled heating for fat reduction on the stomach, love handles, thighs, and buttocks. Treatment time is 25 minutes per cycle, and downtime, like CoolSculpting, is minimal so some people find they can return to work and daily activities immediately. (Please be aware that this treatment is no longer performed at PHI Clinic)
reduce fat in stubborn areas with non surgical lipo procedures
Non surgical liposuction procedures are not designed to replace traditional weight loss methods, but to spot reduce fat in stubborn areas, and not following a healthy lifestyle after treatment will still cause weight gain.
They should be used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise for continued results. To book a fat reduction consultation, you can log an enquiry for one of our friendly team members to contact you here or call us directly on 0207 034 5999.
