Maybe you’ve dieted your way to within your target weight, only to be met by resistance in a few areas of your body, usually the places where you least want them. The science behind fat is complex, and some powerful forces are at play regarding how your body holds onto or sheds body fat.
Gender and genetics are key in how your body processes and stores fat. Women, for example, are naturally programmed to store more fat around their reproductive organs (pelvis), while men tend to carry fat mainly around their midsections.
Body contouring removes targeted pockets of stubborn fat, helping you achieve the shape you’ve always desired.
At Adult Health & Wellness Center, body contouring works in several key ways to help target stubborn fat:
When you embark on a weight loss program, it’s impossible to dictate where your body loses the weight. Your body sheds the extra pounds according to its genetic and biological directives, which is why people deal with stubborn pockets of fat. With body contouring, you can target these areas directly.
Body contouring works to eliminate fat cells for good. As an adult, you generally carry the same number of fat cells throughout your life. When you lose or gain weight, existing fat cells decrease or increase in size, not number.
A type of body contouring that uses non-invasive laser light, SculpSure attacks fatty deposits in areas like the abdomen and flanks, forcing them to melt down. Laser light and heat reach deeply buried fat deposits, causing agitation and ultimately resulting in the emptying of the fat cells. The liquefied fat moves into the bloodstream and gradually leaves the body naturally.
Using body contouring, you can permanently reduce the number of fat cells in your target areas.
Adult Health & Wellness Center uses SculpSure body contouring to improve the following areas:
Each session lasts about 25 minutes. Results can generally be seen at about six weeks post-treatment and the full effect of the treatment at around 12 weeks post-treatment.
