How Can Patients Keep Fat Away After Fat Reduction Treatment?
With radiofrequency (RF) fat reduction, men and women can now get a slimmer, smoother physique more conveniently than ever before. What’s more — the fat cells destroyed with RF fat reduction will not return to the body, meaning patients can potentially enjoy their newly slimmed contours indefinitely. However, nonsurgical fat reduction results are not necessarily considered permanent, as there are some things that can cause the fat cells left behind in the body to become enlarged or even trigger the formation of new pockets of fat. In this blog, Dr. Carolyn Forbes explains how patients can best preserve their results after a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment at Symphony Medical Spa in Tooele, UT.
How does RF fat removal work?
RF fat reduction is performed using the TempSure® device. While the treatment does not physically remove fat cells from the body the way that liposuction does, it can be used to destroy fat cells by heating them with RF energy. During an RF fat reduction treatment, patients will relax while the TempSure device is placed on their skin. Radiofrequency energy is emitted to the skin’s surface and penetrates the deeper layers of tissue, targeting and heating unwanted fat cells to a precise temperature, at which point they are destroyed and later flushed from the body through natural processes.
Where can TempSure fat reduction be used?
RF fat reduction treatment with TempSure is commonly used to address stubborn pockets of fat in the following areas:
How long does nonsurgical fat reduction last?
The results of your RF fat reduction treatment with TempSure can last for many years, if not indefinitely. Still, patients should keep in mind that they may notice changes to their figure as a result of aging, hormone changes, and other factors. Gaining weight after RF fat reduction can also have a major impact on the results of treatment. Because some viable fat cells still remain in the treated areas, weight gain can cause those fat cells to become enlarged, and new fat cells may also form. This can all lead to the return of inches initially lost during treatment. Without a doubt, one of the best ways to preserve your nonsurgical fat reduction results is to maintain a consistent weight through a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle overall.
Does TempSure tighten loose skin?
TempSure is primarily considered a nonsurgical fat reduction system. As an added benefit, the radiofrequency energy delivered to the body during treatment can also help to stimulate the production of healthy collagen and elastin fibers, which may encourage the skin to appear firmer and more lifted. Patients whose main concern is skin laxity, however, may be better suited to treatment with a dedicated skin tightening solution, like Harmony® XL PRO laser skin tightening. During your initial consultation for nonsurgical body contouring, Dr. Forbes will examine your skin elasticity and other features to determine which treatment or combination of treatments can best help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
