“Spring into Your Summer Body” with These Treatments: Jeff Nourse
They say summer bodies are made in the winter, through strict diet and regular gym visits. Well if you spent your winter hibernating but still want to get a jumpstart on your summer bod, there is still time. Of course it will take more than just eating a few salads and heading to your local Good Life.
In addition to getting started on your forgotten workout routine and counting calories, you can visit your local medical spa and get some fat targeting, body sculpting and skin tightening treatments.
As I have already discussed before, CoolSculpting is a body contouring procedure that uses targeted cryolipolysis (cold) to neutralize and kill exercise resistant fat cells. Developed by Harvard researchers (so you know it’s good) CoolSculpting has quickly become the #1 treatment for non-invasive body contouring. The applicator features a suction that pulls that fat between two plates, and then the cold begins to target the fat cells. The treatment usually lasts an hour and is completely painless. Once the treatment is over the fat cells that were killed will slowly exit the body through the lymphatic drainage system, which is completely safe and natural.
For best results patients’ usually require multiple treatments. The best part about CoolSculpting is once the fat cell is dead and gone it can’t grow back, unlike other treatments that just pop the cell leaving room for it to fill again.
Getting the best beach bod may have already been a goal of yours that you have worked hard towards. Unfortunately as we age and after significant weight loss sometime our skin can appear loose, saggy and unappealing. For skin tightening there have been two major advances in recent years, the first Venus Freeze, is a dual technology tool that combines both Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields. These two technologies work together to heat the tissue under the surface of your skin, which encourages the body to produce more collagen and elastin fibers. As the production of collagen and elastin are increased skin begins to become firmer, smoother and more youthful. Venus Freeze can also lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Ultherapy is for people who have moderate to severe skin laxity. Using ultrasound technology, waves are delivered to the deepest layers of muscle and tissue promoting a healing response. The body then produces more collagen and elastin firming the skin and tightening the skin matrix from within. Both skin tightening treatments are non-invasive, Venus Freeze is completely pain-free while some patients have expresses discomfort while undergoing Ultherapy it is manageable treatment that may require some Tylenol or Advil after.
Whether you decide to contour your body with CoolSculpting or want to tighten some loose skin, there is a treatment available to make sure you get out there and enjoy all this summer has to offer.
