While we all work hard to feel confident in the way we look, it sometimes seems that no amount of exercising and healthy eating can get us our desired figure.
Toning your body can indeed be difficult, even if you’re at your target weight. Whether it be a slow metabolism or a case of unlucky genes, some of us simply have those stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t move, no matter what we do.
At the same time, you might have lost a lot of weight, only to be left with loose skin — this can be even harder to tone. Whatever your issue may be, there is thankfully a solution: body sculpting. Read on to learn more about this pioneering treatment, and how it can help you achieve the body of your dreams with minimal effort.
What is Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting is a noninvasive skin tightening treatment that can eradicate pockets of fat, reduce the look of cellulite, and firm up your overall appearance. The process involves applying a machine to the skin and engaging its deeper layers so as to freeze fat cells, which are then broken down and naturally removed from the body via the immune system.
Body sculpting can target many problem areas, including the stomach, thighs, hips, chin, and arms. It works as an all-over solution or can be solely applied to one or two parts of the body.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
It’s important to note that body sculpting is not a weight loss treatment. To enjoy the best results, you should be close to or at your target weight. The best candidate is one who exercises regularly, but still has some extra fat around their stomach or hips they’re looking to minimize.
Likewise, this treatment is ideal for tightening up loose skin you might have after a considerable weight loss; body sculpting can furthermore reduce the appearance of any stretch marks or wrinkles you wish to target.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
Body sculpting makes use of a small, vacuum-like device that pulls portions of skin in by suction. Because of this, you may experience mild discomfort during the procedure.
This treatment also involves freezing fat cells, meaning you’ll have to tolerate some chilly temperatures. However, this isn’t uncomfortable; your body acclimatizes to the cold feeling in no time.
What Can You Expect Before and After the Treatment?
Before treatment, you’ll discuss with your practitioner which areas you wish to treat, and these may be photographed for body sculpting ‘before and after’ photos. After marking the targeted area(s), your specialist will apply a cool gel to your skin.
Once the treatment is over, your skin might feel firm, numb, and cold. Some people also experience bruising and redness, but these aftereffects are normal, and will typically resolve themselves within a couple days.
Although it is possible to notice an improvement after a single treatment, you’ll likely need multiple sessions depending on how stubborn the fat area is.
