As the weather warms, some of us become self-conscious about wearing less clothing. Let body contouring from Arlington-based Vitalia MedSpa help you get the confidence you need to show off.
What is a Body Contouring Treatment?
Body contouring generally refers to a non-invasive treatment that reduces fat without surgery. These treatments use a number of technologies to destroy fat cells that are then naturally eliminated by the body’s immune system.
Some of these treatments use heat, cold, or radio-frequencies to diminish or destroy fat cells in areas that are not responsive to diet and exercise.
Body contouring treatments typically have no downtime, making this a great option for people who don’t want to take time off from work.
Because the treatments are non-surgical, they also carry fewer risks than traditional surgical fat reduction procedures.
Does Body Contouring Really Work?
Body contouring can artfully target pockets of fat and decrease them to enhance your overall shape. Depending on the method you choose, you can expect to lose up to 20-30% decrease in fat in the targeted area.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Body Contouring?
Liposuction works by removing fat cells via suction. This is immediate. However, it’s also invasive and carries the risks of anesthesia, among others.
Non-invasive body contouring procedures including Exilis, Vanquish, and VelaShape, destroy or shrink fat cells. When the fat cells are destroyed, your immune system’s cells gobble up the broken fat cells.
Then, your body eliminates them gradually as waste. Therefore, you can expect to see your final results within 6 to 20 weeks.
Those who stick to a healthy diet and lifestyle usually see the best results because fat-reduction treatments go hand in hand with this sort of way of living.
What is Vanquish?
Vanquish uses panels to emit a radio-frequency that targets fat cells in the abdomen, flank, mid-back, thigh, and upper arm area. Each treatment lasts 45-60 minutes and most patients experience no or very little discomfort.
The optimal number of treatments varies for each person, but the average is usually 4-6 total treatments.
What is Velashape?
Velashape uses infrared light, radio-frequency, massage, and gentle suction to diminish the appearance of cellulite. It can also reduce the circumference of the abdomen and thighs and lessen fat under the chin.
Each of these features help to make a difference in appearance by loosening the fibrous bands in the skin, reducing or destroying fat cells, activiating the collagen response, and tightening the skin tissue.
Usually, we recommend having 5 treatments, one every week.
What is Exilis?
This body contouring option near Arlington combines radio-frequencies with ultrasound technology to sculpt your problem areas. This is an excellent option for those looking to tighten loose and sagging skin.
Four to six treatment sessions, usually taking place every 7-10 days, generally produce the best results. Sessions last between 20-30 minutes, and oftentimes, results are visible from the first treatment!
