What is Body Contouring?
An entire population who previously weren’t interested in cosmetic procedures are now very interested in what these non-surgical devices can accomplish. In terms of popularity, helped by massive marketing campaigns, non-surgical fat removal options have earned a meteoric rise in adoption.
Non-surgical body contouring devices, whether aimed at fat removal, cellulite improvement, and/or skin tightening, absolutely do work, in the right patient. The right conditions need to be met for their use to be warranted and effective. Otherwise, patients may end up spending more time and money to fix an area that could have been done in an hour with liposuction. As always, it’s important for patients to do their research on treatments they are considering and ask pertinent questions Dr. Solomon and the knowledgeable staff at Solomon Cosmetic Center about how effective they might be considering their unique body.
There are numerous noninvasive body-contouring devices currently available on the market. These devices broadly deliver an external form of energy that causes changes in the underlying adipocytes. The devices can be classified according to the type of energy used. At Solomon Cosmetic Center in Palm Harbor, FL, Dr. George Solomon offers three body contouring devices to help slim and tone areas of the body:
- ThermiTight® RF – Utilizes a small electrode inserted under the skin to heat tissue to a clinician-selected therapeutic temperature. By applying radiofrequency energy directly to the targeted tissues, ThermiTightTM can immediately restore skin tightness and tone in the abdominal area for a more youthful profile. The effects can last for several years, improving the way clothes fit and providing a boost to your self-image. To learn more+
