Non-Surgical Treatments For Combatting Fat Loss
So by now, you might have tried it all. The 6 am spinning classes, the juice cleanses and the extreme diet plans online; the battle to stay in shape can be slow and exhausting, not to mention, it takes a serious toll on our mental health. Whilst it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly, sometimes stubborn body fat just won’t shift.
Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we’re here to help you reach your perfect body and lose those pesky inches – without having to go under the knife! Perhaps you have a goal weight you want to achieve before an event, or you’re just tired of slow results and want to see some improvements; we have plenty of treatments to help you feel like the best you.
Overeating or an imbalanced diet are the main two causes of excess fat, and, as too much extra fat can lead to obesity, it is vital to make the necessary changes to your lifestyle. But, excess fat can be stubborn to remove. Fortunately, we can offer a range of non-surgical treatments that you can try. Below are some of our suggested treatments that can be used to target excess fat; these options can be used in isolation or combined to help you achieve your ideal body shape.
Our Suggested Treatments:
Ultrasound cavitation works by toning the body through radio frequencies and low-frequency ultrasonic waves. These waves form bubbles around the fat deposits under the skin, and the bubbles then burst to break the fat deposits into the interstitial and the lymphatic systems where they are drained. The fat deposits are changed into glycerol and free fatty acids. The body then reuses glycerol while free fatty acids travel to the liver and are excreted as waste.
At Aesthetics of Liverpool, our medical professionals also use additional devices during a cavitation treatment which are also extremely effective. For example, a vacuum suction device is used to aid the removal of broken-down fat deposits. These vacuums have ultrasound cavitation built into them, allowing the fat deposits to undergo more radio waves. In addition to showing promising results, these devices are also safe for use within medical procedures.
FORMA is an effective and non-invasive treatment that increases collagen; subsequently, this lifts, tightens and sculpts the area you would like to target. It works by using a subdermal heating applicator which allows radiofrequency to travel via electrodes. The energy then gradually heats the dermal layer – where our collagen bonds reside. This heating then causes a series of micro-injuries to occur.
These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response to kickstart, producing collagen and elastin proteins. This is the same healing process that the body would use to repair itself when there has been a larger injury. The proteins that are created are what gives our skin a tight and plump appearance. As more collagen bonds are stimulated, they help restore the skin to its former tight and toned state.
Morpheus8 is the latest trending treatment for body sculpting, used by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian to help achieve that toned look. Morpheus8 has dual components designed to help sculpt your body; the combination of micro-needling and radiofrequency perfectly targets stubborn fat on all levels. The micro-needles penetrate 4mm into the dermis, creating micro-injuries that will trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which will ultimately tighten and tone the skin. Meanwhile, the radiofrequency will be emitted deep into the skin, disrupting the fat cells through thermal energy. As a result, the tissue will be rebuilt without the fat cells- effectively toning and lifting the desired area whilst reducing fat cells.
Body HIFU has been deemed the alternative to liposuction for those who don’t want a surgical procedure. It works by using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound to penetrate through the layers of the skin to reach the unwanted stomach fat tissue without harming the skin or the surrounding tissues. The treatment delivers focused energy at a depth of 1.3cm; the controlled thermal effect results in the destruction of fat cells and collagen production in the treatment area, causing the skin to tighten. As a result, body HIFU can reduce belly fat and other problem areas such as the arms and thighs, which can also be challenging to lose weight naturally.
HIFU is unique as the energy intensity means that it only requires one treatment to see instant results. In one go, you can non-invasively target and destroy your fat cells resulting in a tighter, more toned body.
Prosculpt is a more effective way of toning and losing weight than a workout! Unlike a regular workout, Prosculpt uses 100% of the muscle in the area by using electrical muscle stimulation to engage the muscle. The electrical muscle stimulation contracts the muscles, forcing the tissue to adapt and build muscle, burning fat. In just under 30 minutes, your muscles will experience over 30,000 contractions, resulting in a 20% increase in muscle mass and 30% fat reduction (on average).
Prosculpt is a type of EMsculpt treatment using high-intensity electromagnetic therapy to contract and stimulate the body’s natural energy production. By mimicking the sensation of an intense workout, Prosculpt is able to help you enlarge your current muscles while encouraging muscle hypertrophy. Muscle hypertrophy creates additional proteins and muscle fibres that together increase your muscle density and volume.
The use of electromagnetic therapy is FDA approved and can be used on your abdominal muscles, thighs, calves, buttocks and arms. It is an excellent treatment for enhancing and tweaking your toned appearance, as well as for addressing more advanced issues.
3D shockwave targets cellulite by using sound waves to stimulate the microcirculation within the fat layer, increasing the area’s metabolic function and cell membrane permeability. As a result, free fatty acids and glycerol are released from the fat cells and sit in the intercellular space. Lymphatic movement and increased blood supply remove these waste products from the body.
In addition, to tighten the skin overall, sound waves stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation within the area. They also stimulate connective tissue and septa mobility, giving the skin a firmer tone and reducing the dimples within the skin.
VelaShapePro is another revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that specifically targets cellulite, helping to tone these fat cells. Infrared light combined with bi-polar radio frequency energy come together to heat the fat cells deep within the dermis. This heating process will reduce the size of the fat cells whilst also breaking down the cellulite. Similar to cavitation, a medical-grade vacuum device is then used to encourage the removal of these broken down fatty deposits by the body’s lymphatic system.
The vacuum, however, also stimulates the body’s healing process, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin – the proteins that provide our skin with its tight and firm appearance. The boost of collagen and elastin allows the body to repair the bumpy surface created by cellulite naturally.
MLD has been around since the 1930s and was created by Emil and Estrid Vodder to help treat lymphedema. However, the wonders of MLD have been seen to have many effective results, including weight loss! MLD is similar to a massage and uses a series of specific and purposeful sweeping movements to encourage lymphatic liquid into the correct drainage vessels.
As you most likely know, if you have a higher metabolic rate, you will burn calories and fat faster – this is how the body naturally loses weight. If you receive regular lymphatic massages, this helps keep your metabolic rate high and prevent it from slowing down. If you regularly receive lymphatic massages, your metabolic rate would increase, thus burning more fat.
