You have now access to various types of lipo without surgery using cutting-edge technologies offered by lipo specialists as well as medical spas. Find out here about your options and how to choose the best one for you.
Wherever you’re looking, the claims are that these new procedures offer all the benefits of traditional liposuction but without a risky surgery.
This allows you to re-contour your body in those areas that are not responsive to diet and exercise alone.
As the claims go, non-surgical lipo is a minimally-invasive treatment.
Lipo without surgery can be done on your face, neck, arms, hips, stomach and legs, so you can finally get rid of unsightly cellulite and stubborn fat deposits under your skin and "reshape your body to perfection".
Sounds too good to be true?
After a thorough research and several interviews I've done, here’s the scoop.
Instead of breaking down the fat tissue under your skin and suctioning it through larger or smaller tubes (cannulae) like in conventional liposuction treatments, these new non surgical lipo techniques dissolve the fatty deposits through some sophisticated technologies - more about them in a moment.
discussing a few of the most popular techniques of surgery-free lipo,
you may want to take a look at some of your benefits with such a treatment.
Here are some of these benefits:
But keep in mind this.
Because the subcutaneous fat is dissolved gradually,
you must have several sessions of lipo without surgery to achieve the
same results as with conventional liposuction, depending on how much
fat you have in the problem areas.
To help you make the best decision for your needs, here are some of the well-known types of surgery-free lipo available, along with basic details for each treatment.
The non surgical lipo techniques are generally using low-level (cold)
laser, radio-frequency (RF) and ultrasonic technologies as well as
injecting of specific substances directly inside the fatty pockets under
your skin... all without breaking your skin’s protective layer.
Let's take a closer look at some of the most popular procedures.
1. Zerona Laser Slimming is a series of six 40-minutes full body exposures to low-level laser every second day over a two-week period.
The average results are 3-9 inches or
you will get a free round of treatments.
Without removing a LOT of fat from any localized area, Zerona laser lipo procedure is a FDA-approved generalized body-sculpting treatment giving you an alternative to the more invasive liposuction.
If you’re looking for surgery-free noticeable improvements in your body contour, Zerona might be a good option - whether you’re just starting to lose weight and want to boost your results or want to improve your overall body shape.
2. VelaShape is another popular type of lipo without surgery, especially in Europe. It uses a synergistic combination of radio-frequency and infrared light along with skin suction and heated rollers massage to increase the metabolism of your subcutaneous fatty layer and shrink the size of your fat cells.
Like most non-surgery lipo, you’ll have to go to
several sessions to get noticeable results.
You can achieve a circumferential reduction of ½ to 3 inches and you can get the treatment (in one package or separately) on your neck, chest, waist, tummy, buttocks, thighs and knees.
This nonsurgical lipo procedure gives you a vigorous lymphatic drainage and helps in diminishing the appearance of cellulite giving your skin a smoother appearance. If you don’t have a too flabby belly, VelaShape will build collagen and tighten up your skin giving you a nice, non surgical tummy tuck.
3. Lipodissolve (also known as lipo shots or injection lipolysis) is an aggressively marketed cosmetic procedure in the United States, but highly controversial. Unlike the two techniques of lipo without surgery discussed above, Lipodissolve is not FDA-approved.
Derived from mesotherapy (which started to be practiced successfully in Europe several decades ago to treat various cosmetic, neurological and musculoskeletal problems), Lipodissolve focuses on your body’s localized fat deposits.
During this procedure your physician injects subcutaneously a cocktail of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, pharmaceutical and homeopathic medication to help dissolve stubborn deposits of fat under your skin - whether it’s your face, chin, neck, or any other smaller areas.
But think about it...
What exactly happens to the dissolved fat? While some specialists claim that it is discharged as waste, others say that it is broken down through normal fat metabolism, just like what happens when you eat a fatty meal. You’ll probably be better-off waiting for more proven clinical studies before deciding if Lipodissolve looks like a safe non surgical lipo technique to you.
As you can see...
If you look for minimally invasive procedures - not to lose a lot of weight quickly, but rather to reshape your body with little downtime and less money - these alternative non surgical lipo treatments interesting options with real benefits. They are being offered more and more nowadays, especially in bigger cities.
The providers are usually licensed physicians trained in these advanced lipo technologies, as well as medical spas. But before deciding to go for it, be sure to check their websites along with real "before-and-after" photos.
