Working out and eating a clean, balanced diet can work wonders for getting the body you want. However, if you’ve ever tried to lose stubborn fat from a problem area, you know that even your best efforts can fall short of losing those last few inches from your figure. The way the body is prone to storing fat can be frustrating, especially when you already practice healthy habits.
In the past, it used to be that if you wanted to get rid of stubborn fat deposits from your body, your best option was surgical liposuction. Today, the advancements in nonsurgical and noninvasive body contouring treatments have allowed both men and women to get rid of unwanted fat without the need for surgery, anesthesia or a recovery period. At Body Symmetry MD, we are thrilled to offer patients acoustic lipo sculpting with the Acoustic Lipoliser; a fat and circumferential reduction procedure that uses ultrasound and radiofrequency technology to destroy diet-resistant fat cells permanently.
Who is a Candidate for Acoustic Lipo Sculpting?
While not a treatment for major weight loss, acoustic lipo sculpting can be beneficial for patients with one or more areas of localized fat that they want to eliminate. As a noninvasive treatment, there are little, if any, serious risks or side effects associated with acoustic lipo sculpting. Acoustic lipo sculpting is FDA-approved and safe for all skin types. However, for best results, patients should already be at or within a reasonable range of their ideal size but wish to target isolated pockets of fat on their body, commonly in the following areas:
- Side flanks
- Upper arms
- Underside of chin
In addition to acoustic lipo sculpting, Body Symmetry MD offers a number of medical weight loss treatments and therapies that can be combined with acoustic lipo sculpting to help you effectively reach your fitness goals. During your initial consultation, our wellness consultants will meet with you one-on-one to help devise a customized weight loss program for your body’s unique needs.
How Does Acoustic Lipo Sculpting Work?
Acoustic lipo sculpting, otherwise known as ultrasonic cavitation, uses ultrasonic waves to convert fat cells into free fatty acids, which the body then eliminates through natural processes. The Acoustic Lipoliser works to deliver focused low-frequency sound waves directly into the subcutaneous layer of fat, or the layer of fat just below the skin. These sound waves disrupt the fat cells, causing them to break apart and the cell membrane to rupture.
Radiofrequency waves are then applied, which generate heat in the treated tissues to aid in the breakdown of fat, stimulate new collagen production and cause collagen fibers in the skin to contract. This combined technology works to not only destroy pesky fat cells but also reduce the overall appearance of cellulite and tone and tighten the skin. With a series of acoustic lipo sculpting treatments, you can effectively lose inches from your targeted area and improve your skin’s tone and texture for a slimmer and smoother figure.
What Can I Expect From My Acoustic Lipo Sculpting Treatments
Acoustic lipo sculpting sessions are entirely noninvasive and can typically be completed in just 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of your treatment area and the number of areas you wish to address. To get the most out of your treatment, we recommend drinking plenty of water, eating right and exercising before, after and in-between your acoustic lipo sessions. Staying hydrated both before and after your treatments is essential to helping your body expel the treated fat and enhance the results you achieve.
During your acoustic lipo sculpting appointment, your provider will move the Acoustic Lipoliser device across the surface of your skin to deliver the ultrasonic and radiofrequency waves into your targeted region. The process is virtually painless and does not require any anesthesia. When the treatment is complete, you can immediately leave our office and resume all of your normal day-to-day activities.
What Results Can I Expect From Acoustic Lipo Sculpting?
While you may observe noticeable improvements to your body after a single acoustic lipo sculpting session, most patients will require a series of 6 to 12 treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. Repeat treatments can be performed on your target area every 72 hours. While the skin tightening effects of this treatment should be apparent almost instantly, fat reduction results will take some time to develop as your body’s lymphatic system works to eliminate the treated fat cells.
Your final results can take up to three months to develop, but some patients may see results sooner than others. Typically, patients can expect to lose between 1 to 3 inches of fat depending on their body mass and the amount of fat present in their treatment area. The results you achieve with acoustic lipo sculpting are designed to be long-lasting; the fat cells destroyed from the treatment will never return. However, it is essential to continue leading a healthy and active lifestyle to maintain your results long term.
