Non-invasive fat removal: what can you expect?

Non-invasive fat removal techniques treat stubborn fat that remains despite exercise or diet. It’s an option worth considering since there is no down-time and the results can be permanent.

The areas that can be treated are stomach, thighs and upper arms.  Double chins can also be treated effectively.

What does the treatment involve?

At it’s very basic, a therapist uses a hand-held device to treat the fat by either touching the skin or hovering over the skin. The device will either use cold, heat, light or sound waves to treat the fat.  There are injections available too which have been approved by use in USA.  Such treatments use bile acid to dissolve the acid.

How long does it take to see results?

With non-invasive treatments the results appear gradually. Anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months before results settle in.

Are the results really permanent?

When we gain weight, we acquire more fat cells; and the fat cells also expand.  When we lose weight the fat cells shrink.  With non-invasive fat removal, the fat cells are permanently destroyed; but also, the remaining fat cells shrink in size.

How long does it take to see results?

It takes anywhere between 2 weeks to 3 months to see results. The results are gradual unlike liposuction where the results are instant.

Are the results similar to those seen with liposuction?

Liposuction delivers more-dramatic results. With non-invasive fat removal, the results are subtle.

What is the recovery time for non-invasive fat removal?

Most people find that they can return to their normal activities straightaway. You may have some swelling or bruising afterwards, but this usually doesn’t cause downtime.

How long does non-invasive fat removal take?

Whilst there is usually no downtime, most people need to schedule time for clinic visits. Non-invasive fat removal generally requires more than one treatment session, and each session tends to last between 30 and 90 minutes. Some sessions take longer.

After the first treatment, your therapist will re-evaluate you in a few weeks to a month.
