We all know the basics of what it takes to lose weight. With a healthy diet and lifestyle, it’s possible to get to a healthy weight. What it’s not possible to do with diet and exercise alone is sculpt the body. We can’t control where fat loss comes from, making it possible we’ll end up with pockets of fat that won’t budge. At DermaNuva Skin Laser and Health in Olds, Alberta, we may use Hotsculpt to help you get rid of that frustrating fat. Contact our office today to set up a consultation!
What is Hotsculpt?
Hot sculpting is a non-invasive technique that destroys fat cells by heating them up with laser energy. It works safely because fat cells die at different temperatures than the cells around them. This means the laser’s energy can kill the fat cells without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. Once the fat cells have died, the body’s natural waste management system will simply flush them away.
The Benefits of Hotsculpt
A Non-Invasive Treatment
Liposuction involves incisions. It doesn’t matter how small the incisions are; it’s always hard on the body to get an invasive treatment. Additionally, any invasive treatment always comes with the possibility, however small, of infection. With Hotsculpt, you don’t have to worry about harm to your body either from incisions or from infection.
A Natural Treatment
Hot sculpting is natural in the sense that it uses your own body to get rid of the fat cells. Rather than removing them by force or using chemicals or drugs, we simply heat up the cells until they die on their own and then wait for the body to remove them naturally.
A Discreet Treatment
One of the biggest benefits of hot sculpting is the timeline of results. It takes a while for your body to fully dispose of all the fat cells, and what that means is your results should look no different than if you’d lost fat through a few weeks of diet and exercise. No one around you has to know you’ve had any work done unless you choose to tell them.
A Targeted Treatment
Unlike diet and exercise alone, Hotsculpt gives you the ability to target areas you’re dissatisfied with and remove those pockets of fat that won’t respond to all your efforts in the gym or in the kitchen.
A Permanent Treatment
Since the fat cells have died and been flushed away, this is a permanent treatment. That being said, a poor diet could cause the remaining fat cells in the area to expand, so maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial. It’s also important to note that individual results and their longevity can vary based on a number of factors.
