Recent figures show that across the US, over 50% of women try to lose weight each year. Losing weight in specific areas and keeping it off can be difficult. This is part of the reason why many people seek assistance in addition to traditional weight loss techniques such as exercise and dieting.
Until recently, one of the most common techniques for targeting stubborn fat in particular areas was liposuction. An invasive surgical procedure. Now, however, there is an alternative for those who are reluctant to go under the knife: the OptiLipo treatment.
This article will take you through everything you need to know about this revolutionary and non-invasive fat-freezing procedure currently being offered by Dr. Simon Ourian at Epione Beverly Hills. Read on to find out more.
OptiLipo: An Alternative to Liposuction
As with any surgical procedure, liposuction comes with certain risk factors. It is understandable, then, that some patients may be reluctant about undergoing such a treatment. In such cases, the liposuction alternative OptiLipo can be a great option.
Like liposuction, OptiLipo targets fat cells in problem areas of the body. Unlike liposuction, however, it is a completely non-surgical, non-invasive, and above all gentle procedure. With OptiLipo, there is little to no recovery time and no need for anesthesia or sedation.
The Science Behind OptiLipo
Sounds too good to be true? Think again. The science behind this groundbreaking procedure is actually quite simple, while the results are undeniably impressive.
During an OptiLipo treatment, fat cells are identified and targeted for selective cooling. Once the fat cells have been cooled, they will naturally die and be eliminated from the body. The skin surrounding the treatment area remains unharmed, and any slight redness of the affected area should dissipate within a few hours.
The procedure is not painful. Afterward, patients are not required to restrict their activities. They are able to go about their days as normal.
Good Candidates for OptiLipo
OptiLipo is an effective treatment for stubborn fat pockets. It is not, however, intended for overall weight loss. The best candidates for this procedure are already healthy patients who are looking to get rid of stubborn fat in problem areas.
This treatment is great for love handles, belly fat, jowls around the jawline, back fat, or fat rolls that appear alongside the bra straps.
Some studies have shown that OptiLipo can reduce the appearance of fat layers by over 20% within two to four months after a single session.
