Body-contouring treatments can be done in a variety of areas, but they are most commonly performed on the stomach, flanks, buttocks, and hips. It is important to remember that body contouring Toronto is not a weight-loss treatment, but rather a way to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. The treatments allow you to achieve a slimmer body, but they do not necessarily mean weight reduction. Body-contouring treatments are typically requested by patients who have lost a significant amount of weight or who have recently had a child.
Non-invasive body contouring Toronto treatments use a variety of laser technologies with the common goal of removing fat cells. The technologies work by creating injury to the fat cells in a targeted area in a very controlled manner. The injury to the fat cells causes the body to naturally eliminate the injured cells over the next few weeks.
If you are someone who is in a healthy range of weight and has some problem areas that do not seem to go away, then non-invasive body contouring may be the right choice for you! People who are very athletic and find that nothing helps with stubborn fat or who need to look perfect for a special occasion commonly seek out body-contouring Toronto options to help their problem areas.
SculpSure is an in-office treatment and the preferred option at Sovereign Skin for people looking to contour their bodies.
The results from a set of SculpSure treatments are long-lasting without surgery or pain. If you are considering a SculpSure Toronto treatment, you should be active and have a healthy diet. To achieve long-lasting results from this fat-reducing and body-contouring treatment, typically a series of 1 to 3 treatments is necessary. The SculpSure treatment permanently destroys fat cells that are treated in the procedure.
That being said, as patients lose and gain weight, existing fat cells can also fluctuate with the change in weight. An ideal SculpSure Toronto candidate is within 10 to 20 pounds of their optimal weight and has a body mass index under 30. With body-contouring treatments like SculpSure, it is important to have realistic expectations and understand that even though fat cells are permanently destroyed during a treatment, weight fluctuations even after the SculpSure body-contouring treatments may require additional sessions to achieve the desired result.
SculpSure treatment final results are seen at the 12-week mark after the body-contouring treatments have been completed. This time frame is based on your body’s ability to metabolize the eliminated fat cells through your body’s metabolic system. Just one SculpSure treatment lasting about 25 minutes has the ability to eliminate up to 24% of the fat cells treated in the session.
Typical results are both a reduction of circumference in the treated area and a reduction in size. The amount of reduction varies from person to person, but in general, patients can expect to see a 3- to 4-centimeter reduction in the treatment session (typically 1 to 3 treatments).
On top of the body contouring, SculpSure laser treatments can also improve skin laxity. Since the treatment is a warming laser, skin quality improvements for patients who have lost skin laxity over time are common after SculpSure treatments.
TightSculpting’s main goal is to tighten and shrink skin the stomach and other areas. The TightSculpting treatment works by promoting the production of elastin and collagen. The laser heats the subcutaneous fat cells, and that initiates the body’s natural elimination process. The body will then eliminate the fat cells through its metabolic processes over the next several weeks.
The treatment is performed in less than 1 hour and is painless, leaving the patients with results after as little as 1 treatment. Most patients will require 3 to 5 treatments for optimal results that are long-lasting. Ideally, each body-contouring treatment should be spaced 1 month apart, including 1 to 2 touch-up or maintenance treatments per year.
After your body-contouring treatment, you may experience some tenderness, soreness, and light swelling in the treated area for up to 14 days. This is normal and expected after a body contouring treatment and is nothing to worry about.
Patients say that SculpSure is quite comfortable, and it does not require any anesthesia or downtime for recovery.
Body-contouring treatments are meant to help patients get rid of stubborn fat deposits that do not go away with a healthy diet or a good exercise regimen. On the other hand, weight loss treatments are designed for patients to lose significant weight. Body-contouring treatments may cause a slight decrease in weight while weight-loss treatments are meant for a decrease in weight.
There is no downtime after the body-contouring treatments. Any side effects felt are very minor and very manageable.
There is nothing necessary to do before a body-contouring treatment, but it may be beneficial to eat a meal before your appointment. This may minimize some discomfort during the treatment. For women, it may be beneficial to wait a few days until your period has ended to undergo a body-contouring procedure, as women are more sensitive while on their period and may feel increased amounts of pain during the treatment.
