How it Works
There are a variety of options available for non-surgical body contouring and fat reduction which use a range of technologies. All are designed to destroy fat cells that lie just beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat) without harming the surface of the skin. We off a few different body sculpting treatments such as CoolSculpting® which freezes the fat through cryolipolisis; ZERONA® which uses low-level laser energy; and Infrared RF Vacuum technology which causes deep hating of the fat cells, eheir surrounding connective tissure and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. Multiple treatments may be required with certain technologies.
These non-surgical treatments are designed for people who have reached a healthy body weight. Liposuction is better suited for precise body contouring and removing larger volumes of fat.
It works when the goal is to lose stubborn fat, in delicate areas such as the back/bra lines, tummy, hips, thighs arms and other parts of your body without pain or surgery and no downtime form post procedure healing.
Fast Recovery Time
No Downtime, No Surgery
Cryolipolysis or ‘fat freezing’ is based on the principle that adipocytes are more susceptible to cooling than other cells. When exposed to low temperatures, fat cells are triggered to undergo apoptosis, resulting in an inflammatory response and removal by phagocytes. Subsequently there is a volume reduction and restructuring of the whole subcutaneous layer when the inflammatory response has reduced.
These injections work on the basis that deoxycholic acid acts as a lytic agent when injected into areas of fat, causing disruption of adipocyte membrane integrity and subsequent adipocytolysis. Following this, a mild inflammatory response with phagocytosis and removal of cellular debris results in long term volume reduction in areas treated.
The use of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for fat loss is a relatively recent development. HIFU has traditionally been used in medical aesthetics for several years, primarily to tighten and lift the SMAS layer of the face. It has been indicated that this technique, which uses focused ultrasound to create deep areas of coagulative necrosis in the subcutaneous layer, results in volume reduction and tightening, being apparent around 12 weeks post treatment.
Radiofrequency (RF) has been a key modality of power delivery to tissues for a variety of purposes over the last 75 years. RF treatments are based on the principal of skin and deep tissue heating through conversion of radiofrequency waves to heat energy, resulting in vasodilatation and inflammatory changes, with subsequent stimulation of dermal thickening and deeper connective tissue thickening and reorganisation.
This laser is designed for overall body circumference reduction to create a slimming effect applied externally and has been proven through double-blind, multi-site, placebo controlled clinical trials to emulsify adipose tissue.
