The Body Contouring Conversation Heats Up! (Part 2)

We recently introduced two of the newest nonsurgical body contouring procedures available for getting swimsuit ready and year round svelte; Cynosure’s SculpSure® and CoolSculpting®. Proving effective in permanently eliminating excess fat cells (adipose fat) in stubborn areas for both men and women, these procedures are much less invasive than surgery and provide lasting results.

In Part 2 of this discussion, we focus on the primary differences between the two technologies and how they stand up to one another, including the amount of time on the market with FDA-clearance and the fat eliminating technology used – heat versus cold.

Among the first body contouring procedures to receive FDA-clearance and scientifically report positive patient outcomes, SculpSure uses light-based technology, a whole new approach to non-invasive lipolysis (heat) using a hyperthermic laser.

CoolSculpting technology entails the delivery of “controlled cooling” to the fat cells underneath the skin using Cryolipolysis (cold).  Check out the “Head to Head” video comparing the two treatments. View Head to Head Video

In Part 3 of our Body Contouring discussion, we’ll further examine these technologies.

The Body Contouring Conversation

Body Contouring Conversation, Part I

We work out, weigh and show incredible restraint to achieve a physical appearance that mirrors what we feel.  But even the best exercise efforts can still fall short in chiseling out the contours we seek.

Fitness trainers explain that it’s simply not possible to “spot train” – cardio helps achieve weight loss, weights and resistance training tone and build muscle, while stretching lengthens and further refines them. But, no gym can deliver a whittled waist, toned tummy, and “slim fit” thighs to order.

For many simply striving for that next level just barely out of reach, liposuction is too drastic a step to take.  So, short of surgery, what options do we have?

Fortunately, there are a number of nonsurgical body contouring procedures proving the perfect final touch to the efforts we put in.  The key is determining which is the right fit for you.

Many promising procedures have cropped up over the past several years, adding to the service offerings of dermatologists, gynecologists and a range of both qualified and unqualified healthcare providers alike.

As the largest organ of the human body, our skin and its long term care should be given the same careful consideration as any other vital organ.  Those specializing in the field of skin care are uniquely focused on the health and preservation of our skin and the body it covers, dedicating their time to learning about and training on some of the newest products and procedures available in aesthetics. Experience is key. www.dermatouchrn.com
