At the Southeastern Institute of Restorative Medicine in Dothan, AL, we know that everyone has some area of the body that they want to improve. Still, sometimes the gym and your healthy diet just aren’t enough and don’t make a difference in improving the appearance of your problem areas. Sometimes you need something more, and we have just the thing. We offer different body contouring treatments that can significantly affect your appearance and confidence levels.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
Patients Who Can’t Reach Their Goals at the Gym or in the Kitchen
If you’ve been eating healthy for months or years in an attempt to improve your body composition and target specific problem areas, you’re not alone. If you’ve been working out and living the healthiest lifestyle possible but still can’t address stubborn fat, we have good news. There are effective treatments that can do what your lifestyle cannot, and we offer them right here at our office.
Patients Who Have Reached Their Goal Weight
One of the most important factors to consider when you choose to schedule a body contouring treatment is your weight. These treatments are not weight loss treatments. Instead, they are designed to help target specific areas of the body that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.
For that reason, it’s important that patients reach their goal weight before scheduling treatments since these devices will not eliminate large pockets of fat. Large amounts of dense fat must be addressed with traditional weight loss measures. These treatments are designed to eliminate the stubborn fat that just doesn’t respond to your lifestyle.
Patients Who Do Not Want To Undergo Liposuction
Liposuction is an effective procedure that removes stubborn fat cells directly from the body with a number of different surgical techniques. However, not everyone wants to commit to a surgical procedure to achieve their body goals. The good news is, thanks to effective, non-invasive body contouring treatments, you don’t have to.
If you don’t have time for a lengthy downtime, a recovery, or cannot financially commit to a surgical procedure, there are other options that work, and we offer them here at our office. These treatments don’t require stitches, incisions, or scalpels and don’t result in any pain. You can reach your body goals during a relaxing treatment session that won’t even require that you work up a sweat to achieve results.
Patients Who Are Committed to the Treatment Process
The best candidates for body contouring treatments are patients who are committed to the process. Depending on the areas you want to treat, your technician may recommend that you schedule several sessions to achieve your desired results.
If you want to achieve the best possible results, you need to follow the specific treatment plan prescribed for your unique aesthetic goals. Committing to the process and attending your sessions will ensure that you can target that stubborn fat and re-contour your body in a way that you may not have thought possible.
Patients Who Are Committed to Maintaining Results
Another important factor that makes patients good candidates for these treatments is that they understand the importance of and are committed to maintaining their results. You can get some incredible results from undergoing one of these treatments, but it is your responsibility to maintain the results long-term.
These treatments can target and eliminate stubborn fat cells, but they won’t eliminate every fat cell. For that reason, you need to eat a healthy diet and avoid weight gain after your treatment to make sure that your remaining fat cells do not expand.
Our Body Contouring Treatments
At Southeastern Institue of Restorative Medicine, we offer serval different body contouring treatments that can help transform your body in the best way possible, no gym required.
BodyFX is a powerful treatment that is completely non-invasive yet improves body composition by targeting and eliminating stubborn fat, helping treat and eliminate cellulite, and tightening the skin. It uses radiofrequency energy, and the treatment device applies that energy into the deeper layers of the skin to heat those stubborn fat cells and, in doing so, destroys them.
What Can It Treat?
This device is so versatile because it can help patients accomplish many different body goals. It can target and eliminate stubborn fat, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and help tighten loose skin.
What Areas of the Body Can It Improve?
This treatment can address some of the most common problem areas on the body, including the inner and outer thighs, the abdomen, and the back.
How Does It Work?
The technology used during BodyFX treatments is completely non-invasive and is designed to destroy stubborn fat cells and tighten the skin. Both of these techniques will not only help you look tighter and more toned but will improve skin elasticity by tightening loose skin.
While this treatment device does deliver heat energy into the deeper layers of the skin to achieve results, it will not burn you, and there is no risk of injury or adverse reactions. It’s a completely safe and controlled way to target pockets of fat and cellulite without the need for any anesthesia or numbing gel.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
This treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. If you want to treat additional areas, you may need to spend some extra time at your appointment. During an initial consultation, a technician can provide you with a better idea of what your treatment time will look like.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Typically, patients will need to schedule a series of several treatments with a week between each to adequately target the number of fat cells in their problem area to re-contour the area. Each patient has different goals when it comes to improving their body composition, so each treatment plan may look a little different. A consultation with one of our experts is the best way to determine how many treatments you will need to achieve your body goals.
MiniFX provides us with an effective way to contour those smaller, harder-to-reach areas of the body that require improvements, like the upper arms and the neck. If you have cellulite in smaller areas of the body, this treatment head can help improve those areas and, in doing so, help you feel better about your appearance. The MiniFX handpiece is attached to the BodyFX device to target those harder to reach problem areas.
Cold Sculpting is another effective way to target fat that won’t respond to diet and fitness routines. This treatment uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells, which causes their death.
Once the fat cells are frozen, they die, and the body then sees them as waste and eliminates them slowly in the weeks following the treatment session. Cold Sculpting is a comfortable and effective treatment that does not require any numbing cream or anesthesia and is completely non-invasive.
When Will I See Results?
All of these treatments will target and eliminate stubborn fat cells, but it will take the body some time to effectively remove those fat cells. For that reason, no matter which treatment you schedule, BodyFX, MiniFX, or Cold Sculpting, you can expect to see results within a few weeks of your initial treatment.
The best way to measure your progress is to take photos and measurements each week so that you can record tangible changes in your body composition. As you do, you will realize that your body is, in fact, changing; it just may take a little time to see the results as your body does the work to eliminate the dead fat cells from the system.
Which Treatment Is Right for Me?
All of these treatment options will deliver results, and if you’re wondering which is the right option for you, our expert technicians can meet with you during an initial consultation to let you know exactly that. If you want to target fat cells, improve your body composition, and reach your goals, we will create a treatment plan that helps you achieve some amazing results.
