Non-invasive fat removal involves a dermatologist using either a handheld device or injections to destroy fat cells. Without making an incision, a dermatologist can permanently remove a pocket of unwanted fat.
Which areas can be treated?
Non-invasive fat removal can be used on just about any area of the body. The belly, flanks (love handles), thighs, chin, neck, back, upper arms, and knees are all treatable.
How long does it take to recover and see results?
Most people return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. There may be minimal swelling and bruising.
How soon will I see results?
With non-invasive fat removal, the results appear gradually. If you are treated with a device, you may notice some changes as early as 3 weeks. Most people see the full effect between 3 and 6 months after the last treatment.
Who are ideal candidates?
Good candidates for non-invasive fat removal have a small bulge of fat that remains despite diet and exercise and their weight falls within the normal range for their height.
If you think you may be a good candidate, you should see a certified dermatologist.
