Body Contouring- The Non-Surgical Way
In recent years we have seen a huge shift in the popularity of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Before many patients believed that in order to gain the noticeable results they wanted, going under the knife was their only option, and for many years they might even have been correct. However, non-surgical cosmetic treatments have developed rapidly over the past couple of decades and now offer patients a wide range of options and results. This change isn’t just reserved for facial cosmetic treatments such as Botox and thread lifts, but also extends to body treatments such as non-surgical body contouring. No longer do patients have to opt for riskier treatments like liposuction in order to gain the results they want. But what non-surgical body contouring treatments are out there, and which option is right for you? In order to answer these questions we sat down with APSARAS Clinic’s Dr. Thevendra to learn everything you need to know about non-surgical body contouring.
What is non-surgical body contouring?
“Non-surgical body contouring is a fairly self-explanatory concept,” explained Dr. Thevendra. “It encompasses a group of cosmetic treatments that aim to improve the appearance of unwanted or unflattering body fat by contouring it into a more complementary shape or position. These treatments can vary in the methods in which they achieve the visible improvement that they provide, but usually involve minimal contact with the patient’s body and have reduced risks compared to surgical alternatives.”
One form of non-surgical body contouring that is popular with patients looking to pimprove their silhouette is Accent RF treatment. Accent RF is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that aims to improve the tone of the area by penetrating the skin with radiofrequency wavelengths. These wavelengths effectively heat up fat cells with the area of treatment, allowing the practitioner to adjust them into a more complementary shape. Once heated the cells can be augmented in a number of ways; repositioned, reshaped or shrunk.
“What makes Accent RF such as great form of non-surgical body contouring is that it gives patients a way to improve the appearance of their excess fat in a non-invasive way. The use of radiofrequency technology means that the treatment can achieve the patient’s desired results with minimal contact needed, meaning the risks involved are dramatically lower than most other forms of fat contouring treatment,” said Dr. Thevendra.
Another form of non-surgical fat contouring that has gained popularity in recent years is Aqualyx. This water-based injectable is perfect for patients looking for a way to rid themselves of their small areas of problem fat, as the treatment ejects fat from the body in a natural way. Aqualyx works by binding with the fat cells within the treatment area. Before it ruptures the cell walls and dissolve the fatty content, expelling it through the patient’s urine.
“Aqualyx is a great non-surgical body contouring treatment for patients that want a more defined result to their unwanted fat. Unlike many other forms of non-surgical contouring, Aqualyx actually removes the unwanted fat rather than just improve the appearance of it. This is a benefit for many patients as it means they can gain the toned and slender results they want without the need to go under the knife,” concluded Dr. Thevendra.
