Just because New Years is long over doesn’t mean our fat-loss resolutions are! We here at SkinScience Clinic don’t know anyone who doesn’t want to tone their body for a more contoured look or lose a little bit of stubborn flab… which is exactly why we have dedicated today’s blog to one thing: fat elimination.
First things first, however: we here at SkinScience Clinic are proud to be one of Calgary’s authorities on science-backed skin care, and, as such, we will only be reporting on fat elimination facts today. Our personal opinion is that we should all love and respect our bodies regardless of their shape or size. Do we encourage a healthy lifestyle with equal measures of exercise, rest, and proper nutrition in order to keep our bodies (and skin!) at their best? Absolutely. However, our end goal is to educate those who are interested in fat elimination—not shame people for the body they’re in.
With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s move on to today’s topic: SkinScience’s guide to fat elimination.
“Marie, What IS Fat Elimination?”
Fat elimination is classified as the reduction of fat—whether that be the contents of the fat cell (known as triglycerides) or the cell itself. As with many procedures today, current technology has allowed a variety of different options to become available on the market. The most common fat elimination treatments at the time of publication include:
· Tummy tuck
· Cryolysis (the freezing of fat cells)
· Sculpture (hands-free radiofrequency)
· Emsculpt (fat elimination via electromagnetic energy)
· and Mesotherapy (the injection of pharmaceuticals that help the body to metabolize triglycerides)
What do the majority of these fat elimination treatments have in common? They are expensive, invasive, and, sometimes, downright painful!
Another downside of the majority of fat elimination treatments is that they are suggested as one-size-fits all procedures… which we here at SkinScience Clinic don’t believe in at all! Client care should be 100% customized, personalized, and 360-degrees based off of your current percentage of fat and your aesthetic end goal. That’s exactly why, out of this entire list, we here at our Calgary location only utilize one treatment method: radiofrequency.
Why Radiofrequency Trumps All When it Comes to Fat Elimination
In short? Four reasons: comfort level, affordability, non-invasiveness, and lasting results.
Our trained technicians here at SkinScience Clinic utilize radiofrequency to channel moveable energy that penetrates deeply into the adipose tissue (also commonly referred to as your “fat layer”); this energy creates friction within the fat cells that, in turn, creates heat which purges triglycerides from the fat cells. This triggers a burst of energy that kills the fat cell. What does this mean in layman’s terms? Fat just doesn’t stand a chance when radiofrequency is being optimized!
More specifically, our technicians use Inmode’s BodyFX and MiniFX radiofrequency technology to eliminate fat with zero downtime or discomfort: widely used by medical spas to eliminate fat, contour loose skin, and even smooth cellulite-affected areas of the body, BodyFX targets larger areas of the body while MiniFX specializes in contouring contained areas. Both technologies can be safely and effectively used on the face, abdomen, thighs, arms, and stomach.
The best part? Inmode’s BodyFX and MiniFX technologies deliver results quickly and efficiently—with six treatments for optimal facial results and eight treatments to contour the thighs, abdomen, arms, and/or stomach. The best fat elimination results are seen when a client can come in and have multiple treatments done weekly until completion.
“Marie, That Sounds Amazing! What Else Should I Know About Radiofrequency for Fat Elimination?”
One of the most common questions we receive here at our physical Calgary location is, “Am I candidate for radiofrequency fat elimination?” I always say, “In order to see proper and lasting results, we need to ensure that your body is in proper condition to be able to metabolize and heal from the treatment without delay.”
What does this mean? Primarily, we need to ensure that your body’s lymphatic system (which controls your body’s ability to drain fluid) is functioning properly; this is because, once we have created lipolysis and apoptosis within the fat cells, your body needs to be able to effectively metabolize the byproduct of this.
If you are unsure if your lymphatic system is firing at its best—or if you have reason to believe that it isn’t—follow our SkinScience Clinic-approved lymphatic drainage steps below to assist it in getting back on track:
· Engage in an active lifestyle in order to promote your body’s natural healing processes
· Check with your primary doctor to see if your hormones are balanced
· Keep your body well-hydrated
“Is it painful?” is our next most common question, followed by: “Is it expensive?”
The answer to both of those questions is a resounding no. For safety, fat elimination via Inmode’s BodyFX or MiniFX is a technician-guided treatment that has a built-in thermal monitor for the sole purpose of protecting your skin from overheating; the device is equipped with an audio indicator which signals to both the technician and the client that the tissue has reached its goal temperature in order to achieve results and automatically turns off. In fact, this feature is an Inmode-exclusive that no other fat elimination technology currently implements!
In terms of price, Inmode’s radiofrequency fat elimination technology prides itself on limiting costs for both medical spas and the client; on a per-treatment basis, Inmode’s radiofrequency technology has proven to be considerably less expensive than other comparable fat elimination treatments.
