Debunking 5 Common Myths About Non-Surgical Fat Removal Treatments

Debunking 5 Common Myths About Non-Surgical Fat Removal Treatments

Body contouring, cool sculpting, and other non-surgical fat removal methods are shrouded in myths and misconceptions. The fact that these are relatively new technologies does not help the case at all. Non-surgical fat reduction is almost too good to be true, you get to reduce fat from a specific area of your body without surgical intervention. No anesthesia, no incisions, or even downtime! The marvels of wellness technology have truly outdone themselves.

Below, we compiled a list of 5 myths that we have seen propagate among the masses. Let’s set these facts straight, shall we?

Myth #1 Non Surgical Fat Removal Is Only Temporary

There are non surgical fat loss treatments that target the water weight, but most processes including cool sculpting are not some temporary fad. The treatment actually destroys the fat cell. Once the fat cells are gone, never to return you will have lost fat permanently. You will however, need to make sure that you don’t gain enough weight to compensate for the fat lost. It is essential that you exercise regularly and follow a fat loss regime.

Myth #2 You Won’t Have to Exercise Anymore

We understand that exercise isn’t the most pleasurable weight loss practice out there, but one can’t deny that it is an integral part of maintaining the results of your fat removal procedure. Many clinics even offer a post-procedure exercise regimen to their clients. Remember exercise is always accompanied by a healthy diet. Body contouring is not a be-all, end-all answer to fat loss. Another point to keep in mind is that body contouring is in no way a weight loss treatment. If your clinic claims so, you are most likely not in good hands.

Myth #3 A Single Session Will Give You the Body You Want

The advertisements may talk about how the sessions are only 25 minutes and that is certainly lucrative but don’t get carried away. Understand that while yes, the treatment may destroy your fat cells in 25 minutes, it is going to take you longer than that to start seeing noticeable results. You will also need to keep at the exercise and diet for more prominent results.

Myth #4 Nonsurgical Fat Reduction Only Works on Abdominal Fat

Procedures like liposuction have instilled the notion that fact removal procedures are primarily meant to deal with belly fat. In truth, non-surgical fat reduction is actually very versatile. The procedures are commonly used on arm fat, inner thighs, love handles, and the chin.

Myth #5 Body Contouring Is a Very Painful Process

This is by far the most non-sensical myth about body contouring and non-invasive fat reduction. Non-invasive treatments are well, non-invasive. The laser and cryogenic technology essentially eliminate the possibility of pain. The most discomfort you might feel is a slight tingling and numbness. A normal session will last 25-45 minutes and involves no incisions or wounds. With literally no downtime you can drop in at lunchtime for your procedure and go your merry way to work once done.
