What is body contouring?
Weight loss techniques — diet and exercise — can only reduce the amount of fat held in your pre-existing fat cells, which is why you may need some extra help to remove lingering areas of fat. The nonsurgical body contouring treatments offered by Dr. Richardson break down fat cells in a specific area, destroying them and preventing them from storing fat in future.
Dr. Richardson offers two FDA-cleared body contouring services. CoolSculpting® is based on the scientific process of Cryolipolysis®, which destroys fat cells by freezing them. This is a very localized process that reduces fat deposits without damaging the overlying skin.
What areas can be treated?
Nonsurgical body contouring treatments work best on small, targeted areas of fat. Dr. Richardson has achieved good fat reduction results on:
- Flanks (love handles or muffin top)
- Bra fat
- Armpits (front and back)
- Inner arms
- Inner & outer thighs
- Buttock (banana roll)
- Chest (gynecomastia)
- Lateral chest wall
Results vary from individual to individual.
What do the treatments involve?
A CoolSculpting® treatment typically lasts two to three hours, during which you can sit back and relax. You can read, check email, listen to music or even take a nap. Dr. Richardson applies a gel pad to the targeted area, followed by the CoolSculpting® applicator designed for that particular part of the body.
This nonsurgical body contouring treatments does not involve down time. In fact, many patients opt for lunchtime sessions and can return to work immediately.
How do I know if body contouring will work for me?
Body contouring isn’t weight loss and works best on patients who are seeking to remove small rather than large areas of excess fat. Dr. Richardson assesses your overall health before recommending a course of treatment. Book a consultation at our Fort Lauderdale location today.
EMSCULPT NEO is based on an applicator simultaneously emitting synchronized RF and HIFEM+ energies. Due to the radiofrequency heating, the muscle temperature quickly raises by several degrees. This prepares muscles for exposure to stress, similar to what a warm up activity does before any workout. In less than 4 minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat reaches levels that cause apoptosis, i.e. fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body. Read More...
