How Can Ultrasound Assist with Body Sculpting?

Surgery isn’t the only option for fast, easy weight loss anymore. Body sculpting, or body contouring, is getting more and more popular every year. Several different methods exist to get the job done. Heat, cold, and acid are all commonly used methods to dissolve and remove unwanted body fat. One of the lesser known methods of body contouring uses ultrasound technology. Below is more information about how ultrasound and other methods of body contouring work.

About Body Sculpting

When most people think about medical procedures to remove fat, they think of liposuction. However, this shouldn’t be the go to method for most people. Liposuction is typically reserved for more extreme cases of fat reduction. Body contouring is for those who only wish to lose a few pounds or shed a couple inches around the waist. Body contouring can also be used on the thighs, flanks, and neck.

Types of Body Contouring

As previously mentioned, there are many types of body contouring available. CoolSculpting® uses cold, SculpSure® uses heat, and VASER lipo uses ultrasound. The only way to find out which type is right for you is to contact a medical professional; however, today, we will be talking about ultrasound body sculpting with VASER lipo.

About VASER Lipo

VASER lipo’s end goal is the same as all other forms of body sculpting – to remove fatty deposits in unwanted areas. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, and it uses ultrasound waves to destroy fat cells on contact. After a single treatment, you will start to see results in just a few months.

VASER lipo, like other forms of body contouring, is considered a cosmetic procedure. This means it doesn’t make you healthier; it simply removes fat directly under the skin and makes you look more fit.

Who Is a Good Candidate for VASER Lipo?

Those who aim for a perfect body should consider VASER lipo. It isn’t for people who need to lose a considerable amount of weight. Diet and exercise – even liposuction – are better options for those who are severely overweight.

You should contact a medical professional to determine if VASER lipo or any of the other forms of body sculpting is right for you. At PFRANKMD™, we can determine whether or not you make a good candidate for this treatment.
