Fat reduction is a way of removing unwanted fat from your body using advanced technologies. There are several cosmetic treatments available for reducing fat without the need for invasive surgeries. Options include:
Fat reduction isn’t a substitute for maintaining a healthy weight. Eating a balanced diet and taking part in regular exercise are the best ways to reduce body fat.
Each method achieves good results for patients, so no single fat-reduction treatment is superior to others. There are several factors to consider when deciding which fat-reduction treatment to go for, so it’s helpful to talk through the options with a qualified medical practitioner, like the staff at Sweet Spot MediSpa.
In some cases, certain treatment methods are especially suited to fat reduction in specific areas. For example, the injection lipolysis treatment Kybella is particularly adept at reducing double chins.
Larger body areas can be contoured with our Sweet Sculpting electromagnetic and radiofrequency device.
Injection lipolysis uses the chemical deoxycholic acid to disrupt and kill fat cells in the treatment area. Kybella has FDA approval for this purpose and is an effective alternative to surgery.
Your practitioner marks a grid pattern on the skin under your chin and numbs your skin with a local anesthetic. They then inject the Kybella into the grid to ensure even distribution. After the procedure, you may experience some:
You may also feel some hard spots under your skin, but these diminish quite quickly.
After your injection lipolysis session, it takes 6-8 weeks for most patients to see a visible reduction in their double chin. Typically, patients need a second treatment 4-6 weeks after the first, and some patients need as many as six treatments in total.
At first, your double chin is likely to look worse because of the inflammation, but once this subsides and your body disposes of the dead fat cells, you’ll see the final results. Unless you gain a significant amount of weight, the results of Kybella treatment are permanent.
Treatments of 2-3 a week for 2 weeks are recommeded with our Sweet Sculpt Device. Results will be noticable in as little as 2 treatments and max results can be seen 4-8 weeks after a series of 4-6 treatments. We offer membership packages so you can contour your body thoughout the year.
