Weight Loss: How Technology Can Help You Shed those Last Few Inches
If you’ve been watching your diet, working out like crazy and have been very diligent with your fitness routine and do you yet still can’t seem to get that last layer of fat off your belly? Belly fat is one of the most stubborn fats you’ll encounter in your body and contrary to popular belief; doing sit ups does not help you lose it. Sit ups simply help to make the abdominal muscles stronger, but not burn fat.
Why? The reason being that belly fat cells have more alpha-2 receptors, which are harder to mobilise in the fat-burning process. Other areas that also possess a higher ratio of alpha-2 receptors include hips, lower back, and thighs, and they too tend to be equally hard to reduce.
The only possible way to eliminate that last layer of fat is through technology such as Bio Aesthetic MediSpa’s Active Wave Body treatment.
What is the Active Wave Body treatment?
It is a treatment that uses powerful cavitational effects to target the deep layers of fat. These ultrasonic waves omit a frequency that produces micro-bubbles to accumulate energy surrounding the fat cells to apply pressure to the cells, making them implode to cause selective destruction of fat cells resulting into contouring, shaping, slimming and firming effects on the body specially in the areas around the waist, stomach, hips and thighs.
How does the treatment work?
The ultrasound field creates the bubbles in the liquid, which gradually grow, and implode at a certain size. The energy in the form of heat (minor effect) and pressure wave (major effect) is released. As the membranes of fat cells do not have the structural capacity to withstand the vibrations, the effect of cavitation easily breaks them, while sparing the vascular, nervous and muscular tissue. The result is instant fat loss.
Is the treatment painful?
Most of the clients consider the procedure painless and comfortable. There may be, however, a slight discomfort due to the specific noise spreading inside your body, but it poses no harm and disappears as soon as you are not in contact with the applicator. You may also experience a little warmth during the treatment. If it turns burning hot, immediately request some extra ultrasound gel to be applied.
How much downtime is required after the treatment?
There is a slight possibility of mild side effects such as transient redness, excessive thirst, and nausea immediately after the treatment which always resolves by drinking water. They are all short-term effects that disappear in few hours to few days.
What kind of results can I expect from this treatment?
The cavitation treatment yields immediate and long lasting results. Most of the clients experience 2 to 10 cm of circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.
