What is fat reduction, and how does it work?

If you’re like many people, your body holds on to stubborn fatty deposits in certain areas. No matter how much you exercise or how well you adhere to a healthy diet, those “problem areas” don’t respond.

That’s because everyone stores fat a bit differently, and it’s simply impossible to “spot train” and eliminate pockets of unwanted fat. Body contouring offers a solution and uses energy to deliver impressive fat reduction results.

Body contouring uses laser energy to create heat in the deeper layers of your skin. This energy creates heat within fat cells, and some of those cells will become damaged and unable to continue storing fat. The cells collapse, releasing fat that your body then processes and eliminates through your lymphatic system.

There are also fat reduction systems that use extremely cold temperatures to damage targeted fat cells. When you come in for your consultation, your practitioner explains all available options and helps you make a choice in line with your treatment needs and goals.

Is fat reduction a painful experience?

Fat reduction is not a painful process. You may feel a sensation of warmth in the treatment area, but there is no significant discomfort. Treatments take less than an hour, and you can treat multiple areas during the same session.

Some of the areas where fat reduction is possible include:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Bra line
  • Buttocks

You can even choose to target small areas where you notice unwanted fatty deposits. Just discuss your treatment goals with your practitioner during your initial consultation.

Are fat reduction results permanent?

Body contouring treatments destroy a portion of targeted fat cells, and those cells will be gone forever. That said, it’s important to understand that your remaining fat cells can still expand and contract to store more or less fat as needed.

If you gain a significant amount of weight after fat reduction, your results can change. That’s why fat reduction is best suited for people who have reached a healthy weight and can maintain those results in the long term.
