Diet and exercise are essential to both your weight loss goals and your overall health. However, there are often areas of your body where stubborn fat deposits remain, despite your best efforts. At Comprehensive Family Practice Laser & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Yelena Kipervas offers body contouring using the SharpLight™ system. Men and women in and around Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, can attain dramatic results with this safe, non-invasive therapy that combines radio frequency and infrared technologies. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Kipervas online or call to start your own body contouring journey.
During the first step of treatment, a hand-held wand glides over the surface of your skin in the treatment area. The SharpLight system delivers radiofrequency waves that heat the fat cells underneath your skin.
That heat damages the walls of the cells, eventually causing them to break down. At that point, your body processes and absorbs the cells.
Next, infrared light is directed at the treatment area to prompt your body to produce new collagen. That plumps and tightens your skin, further enhancing the reduction in fat cells.
Perhaps the most distinctive benefit of body contouring is the ability to alter the shape of your body without invasive procedures and associated side effects. Body contouring requires no anesthesia, no recovery time, no incisions, and no pharmaceuticals.
Here are some additional benefits of body contouring through the SharpLight system:
This body sculpting approach yields the most impressive results when paired with positive lifestyle modifications. Body contouring is an effective treatment option, but it is not a magic wand. You'll need to do your part to sustain healthy habits if you want lasting results.
Once the SharpLight system destroys the targeted fat cells, those cells will no longer be present in the treatment area. Your body can develop new fat cells, however, and your remaining fat cells can expand if you put on additional weight.
Body contouring is an excellent option for men and women who are looking for targeted results that they've not achieved through diet and exercise alone. The technology can reduce cellulite and enhance the shape of the treatment area. It is not, however, a tool used to make drastic weight reductions or address obesity.
The best way to achieve optimal results is by working with Dr. Yelena Kipervas to create a comprehensive health and fitness plan that suits your specific needs. In addition to body contouring, Dr. Kipervas also offers a professional weight loss program and general medical services.
