If you want to smooth away extra fat or create a more sculpted body, complicated surgery is no longer the only way to do so. Today, minimally-invasive and non-invasive body sculpting treatments are available to bring about impressive results with little to no downtime because they don’t involve major surgery. The Aesthetic Medicine team understands that Lake Oswego, Oregon area patients want options when it comes to their body sculpting treatments, and offers both non-invasive and minimally-invasive options. Keep reading to learn the differences between them so you can decide which would suit your needs best.
LipoLift is a trademarked laser liposuction procedure that can eliminate one to four liters of fat from your trouble areas in just one treatment session. You can look as much as 20 pounds lighter in just a day. For this procedure, your treatment specialist creates an extremely small incision and then uses a special laser to heat and destroy your unwanted fat cells. They immediately suction the liquified fat away with a thin tube. The laser energy also helps to tighten the skin. LipoLift is effective for the belly, love handles, banana roll, bra fat, thighs, arms, armpits, and neck/chin areas. This procedure is exclusive to Aesthetic Medicine in Lake Oswego.
BodyTite is a radiofrequency energy procedure that involves deep tissue fat cell heating and destruction. For this procedure, your treatment specialist makes a very small incision in the treatment area and then uses the BodyTite handpiece to liquify fat. They remove the fat via suction, and the radiofrequency energy also tightens your skin by up to 37%. BodyTite is effective for larger areas where you have significant fat deposits, such as the abdomen, thighs, love handles, breasts, and bra fat areas.
Both LipoLift and BodyTite only require a few days of rest. If you have either procedure on Friday, you can usually return to work Monday.
Either LipoLift or BodyTite could be right for you if you need a big change, and you’re able to spend a few days resting up after the procedure. With either of these procedures you can get results similar to surgical liposuction with a fraction of the downtime.
EMSCULPT blends fat removal and muscle building. The external device creates the effects of 20,000 crunches in just 30 minutes. With a series of sessions, you can lose extra fat and improve your lean muscle mass by up to 37%. It’s a good choice for the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and thighs if you want to look more toned and fit without hours in the gym every day.
Vanquish Me is a radiofrequency fat reduction treatment. The radiofrequency energy heats the unwanted fat, which liquifies it so you can shed it naturally over time. VanquishMe works well for the abdominal, flanks, and thighs. It might be right for you if you have small amounts of stubborn fat but still have a lower BMI.
Both EMSCULPT and Vanquish Me require zero recovery time. You can even book an appointment on your lunch hour.
Non-invasive body sculpting could be the right choice if you struggle with fat deposits but don’t feel quite ready to try a minimally-invasive procedure. EMSCULPT and Vanquish Me can give great results with no downtime needed. They don’t yield as dramatic results as minimally-invasive procedures, simply because the fat’s not being removed on the spot. But, for a measurable change with no incisions, this could be just right for you.
