There are a vast array of technologies that target body fat. However, the endless amount of
information on internet can make it increasingly difficult to know which one is right for you!
Due to these unprecedented, Covid-19 affected times, we have been forced to live indoors
more than we want. As a result, we have accumulated fat in unwanted places. Let’s learn about
the available options to get rid of unwanted fat non-surgically!
Non surgical fat reduction options use a variety of modalities, including ultrasound,
radiofrequency, cryolipolysis( Coolsculpting), injection lipolysis( e.g. Kybella), laser lipolysis(
Lets talk about Cryolipolysis- This uses fat freezing technology that permanently removes heat
from the fat cells, freezes and crystallizes them, which also damages their structural integrity.
Suction based applicators freeze and numb the treatment area. Post treatment massage is
required which can be uncomfortable. Treatments are 35-60min per area. Common side effects
are numbness, bruising and itching. Serious adverse effects can happen and include delayed
onset pain, hernias, paradoxical tissue hyperplasia( thickening and expanding of fat cells in the
treated area which require liposuction to fix). Due to the technology, unevenness in the
treatment area has been reported. The final results may take several months as your immune
system clears out the dead fat cells slowly over this time.
Next comes Laser lipolysis or Warm Sculpting- This technology uses laser for permanent fat
destruction. It is clinically proven to reduce the number of fat cells in the treatment area in just
25 minutes. Side effects are mild and temporary in nature, most common being tenderness
which goes away within a week in most cases. The feathering of heat provides a natural looking
result. Similar to fat- freezing, the destroyed fat cells are removed through your immune
system slowly over few months. The procedure can destroy up to 25% of the fat cells in one
treatment. This treatment works great for double chin as well!
Radiofrequency treatments are good alternatives to fat-freezing or laser lipolysis. It can help
with cellulite reduction and is great treatment for skin toning and tightening. The results on fat
reduction are temporary. That means you need treatments on a frequent basis to maintain
Ultrasound fat reduction or ultrasound cavitation- is a body contouring treatment that uses
highly focused sonic waves to break down fat cells used to remove fat deposits under your
skin. The treatment varies in effectiveness, and more clinical trials are needed to have a clear
understanding of how well it works.
Kybella- is a treatment for fat reduction under the chin (double chin). It requires several
injections that kills the fat cells. Though Kybella is nonsurgical, some common side effects
include pain, swelling, bruising, numbness, and numbness.
Muscle- Stimulating Technology- this is not so much for fat reduction but for muscle
stimulation. Multiple treatments are usually needed to build and maintain the results.
Sometimes a combination of different modalities are needed to get best results.
