If you’re stuck with stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away no matter how much you diet or exercise, body contouring can solve the problem, and give you the body shape you’ve worked to achieve. At Signature Med Spa by Su Sachar MD, our team can permanently remove fat while tightening your skin using an innovative and noninvasive procedure that doesn’t require downtime. If you’d like to learn more about body contouring, call our office in Torrance, California, or book an appointment online.
Body contouring is achieved with noninvasive procedures that permanently remove localized areas of stubborn fat. Noninvasive procedures are very effective, but they’re not intended to be used for major weight loss, so body contouring works best for people who are close to their desired body weight.
The professionals at Signature Med Spa by Su Sachar MD perform noninvasive body contouring using an advanced medical device called BodyFX™ by InMode. It can be used to target stubborn pockets of fat anywhere on the body, but it’s often used to treat the abdomen, hips, thighs, love handles, and back.
In addition to the BodyFX treatment we also offer the following body contouring options:
The BodyFX device uses several advanced technologies to contour your body. It combines radiofrequency (RF) energy, deep tissue heating, and suction produced by negative pressure. When the handheld device is placed over the targeted area of fat, suction lifts the tissue and underlying fat so that RF waves can reach deep into the tissues and be evenly distributed.
As RF energy heats the tissues, existing collagen contracts and new collagen production is triggered. Then a second RF pulse is delivered to maintain a specific temperature that destroys fat cells beneath the skin.
The first action, collagen production, serves to tighten your skin and to promote skin that’s smooth and resilient, thanks to fresh collagen. The second action, heating fat cells, makes the cells die, then they’re naturally eliminated by your body so the fat loss is permanent.
You’ll feel the warmth of the RF wave and the slight pull of the suction, but most people find that a session with BodyFX is comfortable. Your skin will be slightly red when treatment is finished, but it goes away within a few hours and doesn’t interfere with regular activities, so you don’t need to plan for downtime.
Improvements are gradual, because it takes time for new collagen synthesis in deep layers of your skin to migrate up towards the surface. Most people get multiple treatments and notice the difference after several sessions.
After a thorough examination and evaluation of the amount of fat your want to eliminate, your doctor at Signature Med Spa by Su Sachar MD will recommend the number of treatments you may need to achieve optimal results.
