There are so many options for fat reduction these days. You have probably heard of treatments like Zerona laser, Ultherapy and CoolSculpting, which all boast significant fat loss results without any scars or invasion. While some patients may see the results they are looking for, it is important to know the facts about these procedures and how/for whom they work.
Non-invasive weight loss procedures are typically best for patients not looking to lose a significant amount of weight. Usually men and women who want to “tone up” without the gym look to these treatments to get rid of small pockets of unwanted fat in specific areas. While this might seem like a great way to get those results, there is a reason why at Coastal Plains we use Tickle Lipo for our sculpting and localized fat reduction.
Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss
An important difference that many people do not understand is that between fat loss and weight loss. When you lose weight by diet and exercise, you are not actually reducing the number of fat cells in your body. You are, in fact, merely shrinking these cells. Your body naturally has a set number of fat cells that becomes fixed between the ages of 13-18, and there is no way to reduce that number except by fat loss procedure. Tickle Lipoaid in fat loss, reducing the number of fat cells in your body.
How Many Sessions?
Here is where the difference begins to be apparent between Tickle Liposuction and non-invasive fat loss procedures. While Tickle Lipo will accomplish your fat loss goals in only one session per treatment area, other procedures require that you opt for several sessions before you see your desired results. Sitting through many treatments, and just as importantly paying for them, takes a toll on your body and your wallet that is unfavorable to most patients.
Tickle Lipo is also known for its instantaneous results. With procedures like Ultherapy, fat loss is seen over the course of 3-6 months as your body breaks down and rids itself of the targeted stored fat. However, liposuction is minimally invasive, so the procedure requires that the fat is removed immediately as it is broken down.
Tickle Lipo Benefits
Not only is Tickle Lipo preferred when compared to the trending non-invasive fat reduction procedures, it is favored medically compared to more traditional forms of suction assisted liposuction. When compared, Tickle Liposuction was able to yield 3.5 times the number of fat cells as traditional liposuction. Further, this procedure costs less money, has a far shorter recovery time and is less invasive, for your comfort and minimal scarring.
