The pursuit for the perfect body has been a lasting mission of many people. Frustrated with exercise and diet, people frequently end up looking into other options to reduce areas of stubborn fat and cellulite. Several years ago, fat reduction and body contouring were mainly done through invasive procedures such as liposuction. Over the past decade, there has been a shift towards non-surgical solutions.
What body contouring treatments are available at The Woodruff Institute?
The Woodruff Institute offers several non-invasive options for excess fat removal, including:
Ultrasound: Ultrasound uses high-intensity, focused sound waves to disrupt fat calls, causing them to dissolve gradually over time. Ultrasound therapy for excess fat removal has been approved by the FDA.
Radiofrequency: Radiofrequency (RF) delivers controlled energy to excess fat areas, creating heat deep within fat cells and subsequently destroying them. Radiofrequency therapy for excess fat removal has not yet been approved by the FDA but is regularly used for body contouring in dermatology.
Deoxycholic Acid: Kybella (Deoxycholic Acid) is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile
Fat and cellulite do not discriminate. Even the most fit and slim people suffer with fat and cellulite. At The Woodruff Institute, we understand the patient demand for non-surgical solutions for fat and cellulite and as a result, have added JuVaShape, UltraShape, VelaShape and Kybella to our body contouring services.
JuVaShape Technology JuVaShape uses patented bipolar radiofrequency technology to improve the appearance and the contour of your face and body. The Bipolar technology in JuVaShape destroys fat cells and reshapes problem areas of the face or body, by melting fat cells and cellulite. JuVaShape then forces your body to rapidly produce excess collagen to restore firmness back into your skin. JuVaShape has a warming sensation that can be very comforting. In fact, many patients have compared it to a hot stone massage.
UltraShape Technology UltraShape delivers focused, non-thermal ultrasound energy directly into the stubborn fat below your skin’s surface top selectively destroy fat cells without the use of heat. The energy created during this treatment destroys the walls of the fat cells and releases them into the body, processed through the liver and eliminated naturally. UltraShape has the ability to treat areas of the stomach, hips, and thighs that have proven to be resistant to proper diet and regular exercise.
VelaShape III Technology VelaShape III technology combines several different technologies: infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture. VelaShape III was specifically created to slim and reduce cellulite in the areas of the stomach, hips, thighs, and arms.
Kybella Kybella is a nonsurgical injection technique used to reduce excess fat beneath the chin. The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells in this area. No incisions are required, and the downtime is minimal in most cases.
