When it comes to fat reduction, most patients are aware of two methods: “burning” it off through rigorous exercise and “sucking” it out through surgical options like liposuction. These are two valid methods for fat reduction, but they fail to address those patients who cannot undergo invasive procedures and/or have deposits of fat on their body which are resistant to exercise.
At Glow Medispa, we recognize that the lack of options for non-surgical fat reduction is an issue for many patients. To answer the needs of these individuals, we provide a number of products that can reduce the appearance of body fat without requiring incision.
Non-surgical fat reduction is more available than you think. Contact us in Seattle and ask about our minimally invasive methods for reducing unwanted body fat. We hope that one of them can meet your cosmetic needs.
Vanquish™ is a treatment that utilizes radio-frequencies to help reduce the appearance of fat. The rf energy is targeted at the area that the patient wishes to be treated. When it reaches the body, the sound waves then begin to disrupt the structure of fat cells while leaving healthy cells undamaged. The rf energy eventually breaks down the fat cells into smaller components that are more easily carried away by the body.
This is a non-invasive treatment and the most common side effects include redness and mild irritation of the skin. To see the best results from Vanquish™, multiple sessions might be needed, but the amount of sessions will depend largely on the individual and their specific needs.
In addition to reducing the appearance of fat, Exilis™ also promotes a tauter appearance of the skin. With a small handheld device, Exilis™ delivers radio-frequency energy to the patient, warming the skin to about 42 degrees celsius. This treatment structurally weakens the membranes of fat cells while triggering the collagen induction process. The heightened production of collagen helps the skin contour to the body after the fat has been removed.
This treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime.
Cellutone® is a system that is aimed to lessen the circumference of the waist while addressing the appearance of lax skin in the process. This treatment is administered through a device that gives you a massage. The intensity of the massage is determined by your specific cosmetic needs and the device includes different “heads” for different procedures. Among these heads are rubber rollers that perform deep massages to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
This treatment requires no downtime and patients can leave when the treatment is completed.
Silhouette™ is a device that is designed for home use and self-administration. The Silhouette™ device has three modes for three different treatments. The mode that delivers rf energy to the body is used for the reduction of cellulite and for tightening the dermis. A mode which delivers red spectrum led light is included to help remove wrinkles and fine lines. The third mode uses infrared energy to give the skin a more lustrous and taut appearance.
