Did you know that nowadays you have access to various types of lipo without surgery using cutting-edge technologies offered by lipo specialists, as well as medical spas? It's true! Find out here about your options and how to choose the best one for you.
Wherever you’re looking, the claims are that these newer non surgical lipo procedures offer all the benefits of traditional liposuction but without a risky surgery.
In short, non-surgical lipo re-contours your body in those areas that are not responsive to diet and exercise alone.
As the claims go, these modern lipo treatments are minimally-invasive.
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.
After a thorough research and several interviews, here’s the scoop on lipo without surgery.
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.
Before 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 a laser lipo treatment.
But keep in mind this.
Because the subcutaneous fat is dissolved gradually, you must have several sessions of laser lipo in order to achieve the same results as with conventional liposuction.
Of course, the number of session you will require depends on how much
fat you have in the problem areas.
To help you make the best decision for your needs, here are the three most popular 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 the most popular procedures.
1. Zerona Laser Slimming Treatment 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, coming from Europe.
VelaShape 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 helping in diminishing the appearance of cellulite. You'll see your skin improving its appearance and becoming smoother.
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 are interesting options with real benefits for you.
You can easily find places that offer these treatments - especially if you live in a bigger city. Here the providers are either licensed physicians or experienced medical spa technicians trained in these advanced laser lipo technologies, so you can rest assured about any safety issues.
As you can imagine, the price for these procedures varies largely depending on where you live. Before deciding to go for it be sure to check their websites for any promotions or sharp discounts and, of course, to see real "before-and-after" photos and to ask any questions that you might have.
