Sometimes, no matter how often you work out and no matter what you eat, your body stores stubborn fat. Years ago, the solution for those fat deposits was limited to liposuction.
But liposuction carries risks because of its invasive nature. Since its inception, non-invasive body sculpting, like laser-lipolysis, has become more and more popular.
Keep reading to learn more about body sculpting and its benefits.
What Does Body Sculpting Do?
Body sculpting is not meant as a cure for obesity. It’s great at getting rid of stubborn fat on the abdomen, back, flanks, arms, legs, and more.
Non-invasive body sculpting uses various techniques to destroy fat cells so that they can’t store fat again. Depending on the type of body sculpting, this may include a number of methods such as:
- Freezing the fat cells
- Chemically destroying the fat cells
- Heating the fat cells
For this discussion, we’re going to focus on body laser sculpting, which heats fat cells to get rid of them. Read on to learn about the benefits of non-invasive body sculpting.
3 Benefits of Non-Invasive Laser Body Sculpting
Laser body sculpting heats up fat cells while using a second laser to cool the skin. The heated fat cells are destroyed and expelled from the body naturally.
Benefits of laser body sculpting are:
- Fast, convenient treatments
- Little to no discomfort
- No risk of infection
Let’s talk about each of these benefits in more detail:
Fast, Convenient Treatments
Treatments like SculpSure, which is a laser body sculpting method, take only about 25 minutes for each area treated. It only takes one or two treatment sessions to get optimal results.
In contrast, freezing fat cells can require more treatment sessions and those sessions can take up to twice as long.
Little To No Discomfort
Because lasers cool the skin’s surface while heating the underlying fat layer, most patients experience no discomfort during laser body sculpting treatments.
Compare this to ultrasound or freezing treatments, which can be more uncomfortable.
No Risk of Infection
Lasers can pass through the skin without incisions, which means that there’s no risk for infection. Liposuction, which involves inserting cannulas through the skin to reach the fat layer beneath, leaves patients at risk for infection.
