In recent years, considerable advancements in non-invasive fat reduction treatments have provided those struggling with stubborn fat deposits a practical and attractive alternative to surgery such as liposuction. At Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami aesthetic dermatology clinic, we offer multiple non-surgical body-sculpting options for those wanting a firmer, more toned body.
These safe and FDA-approved treatments attack fat differently than liposuction does, which means what happens to that fat after these non-invasive procedures are different as well. With liposuction, the fat is physically removed from the body. If you are so inclined, you can see and wave goodbye to that fat after it has been taken from you and deposited into a receptacle. But non-surgical treatments don’t take fat out of yourbody. They work by killing fat cells internally, which means that while you may not see the fat is reduced, the dead fat cells will make their way out of your body as waste.
The mechanics of each non-invasive procedure will determine how these fat cells meet their demise:
EMSCULPT® uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) field technology to induce short bursts of powerful muscle contractions that lead to increased muscle density, decreased volume, better definition, and improved tone. It’s particularly useful on the abdomen and buttocks.
The contractions produced by Emsculpt are stronger, more intense, and more frequent in a short period of time than you could ever accomplish through exercise alone. They are so powerful that the energy needs they create overwhelm the fat cells located next to the muscles in the treatment area. This causes those fat cells to undergo the process of apoptosis (cell death). The dead fat cells are ultimately eliminated and depart the body as waste.
As the name implies, coolsculpting uses freezing temperatures to reduce fat on the abdomen, lumbar, hips, inner thighs, knees, saddlebags, arms, and ankles. This process is called cryolipolysis, which selectively targets, freezes and kills fatty tissue without harming the dermis. These dead fat cells then break down, causing the body to treat them as waste and dispose of them accordingly through urine.
While coolsculpting kills fat cells with cold, Vanquish does so with heat. The treatment uses of multi polar radio frequency technology which induces deep fat tissue heating. Ultimately, this heat in turn permanently kills fat cells while leaving surrounding cells and tissues untouched. Once these fat cells are dead, the body naturally eliminates them through its waste system.
