SKIN’s Fat Reduction Program
We all have certain areas of our body we would like to change. Diet and exercise don’t always work to target specific areas of unwanted fat. SKIN MediSpa offers the latest technology available in non surgical fat reduction. Treatments help to tighten skin, increase the metabolism of stored energy, increase lymphatic drainage and reduce or shrink the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. Patients typically respond to this program with a measurable and circumferential reduction in the areas of unwanted fat. The most common areas to be treated are the outer thighs, inner thighs, hips, abdomen, buttocks, bra line, calves, upper arms and neck. A SKIN specialist will review previous and current skin care, perform a detailed skin analysis, and discuss general health history before recommending a customized treatment program. Your recommended treatment path to achieve targeted fat reduction will include one or more of the following clinically proven options:
SKIN’s Coolsculpting treatment offers the latest generation in CoolSculpting technology. This procedure is FDA-cleared for permanent fat destruction and contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat without the downtime.
SKIN’s Circumferential Reduction treatment incorporates highly effective technology that combines Bi-polar Radiofrequency (RF), Infrared Light Energy, plus Vacuum and Mechanical Massage to deploy targeted heat to adipose tissue. The combination of these energies increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. Patients participating in SKIN’s Fat Reduction Program can expect a number of benefits from the program including decrease in body circumference and fat in targeted areas, reduction in the size of fat cells and fat chambers, and increased lymphatic drainage.
As individual programs will vary from client to client, the associated cost will vary as well. However, a quote will be provided during the initial assessment process.
Injection Lipolysis is one of the most advanced proven techniques in non-surgical fat reduction. Injection Lipolysis can safely and quickly eliminate some of the most stubborn, fatty deposits on your body that are difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. SKIN’s Injection Lipolysis Treatment Program utilizes a proven and effective combination of medications to dissolve the fat in localized areas of the face and body. It is a mild and gradual procedure aimed at providing impressive results in as little as 2-4 treatment sessions. Medications that have been safely used for many years in medicine are combined in a unique blend that encourages fat reduction.
- Eliminate areas of unwanted fat
- Quick and virtually painless treatment
- A more contoured, toned appearance
- Minimal downtime
About Injection Lipolysis
Injection Lipolysis is NOT Mesotherapy. Mesotherapy consists of injections composed of a mixture of different pharmaceutical agents including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other medications that are injected into the hypodermis just underneath the skin. Injection Lipolysis treatments contain a consistent mixture of 4-5 pharmaceutical agents, administered through a series of micro-injections into the central layer of subcutaneous fat. Injection Lipolysis has proven to be a safe and effective procedure when it is under the supervision of a licensed physician who is certified in the specialized Injection Lipolysis procedure.
Injection Lipolysis is suitable for both women and men who are not excessively overweight and have certain problem areas of fatty deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. Injection Lipolysis treatments also offer a solution to those who have areas of fatty deposits that bother them, but are unwilling to undergo surgical liposuction. Injection Lipolysis treatments do not require a special diet, exercise, or increased fluid intake. However, exercise and proper diet combined with the treatments have shown extended long-term results. Injection Lipolysis treatments are not a substitute to diet and exercise, nor are they a fat loss solution for obese or extremely overweight persons.
Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with our medical director with expertise in aesthetic injections, as well as over 20 years experience in creating beautiful aesthetic outcomes for patients of all ages. Our medical director will recommend a custom treatment program based on each client’s medical history and needs. As treatments vary from client to client, a price quote will be provided at the time of consultation.
Injection Lipolysis treatments are often referred to as “Lunchtime Lipo”, as the procedure usually requires less than an hour. The treatment is an entirely non-surgical procedure, where the pharmaceutical solution is injected into areas with unwanted fat deposits. The fat deposits are broken down by the injected solution and released from the body through sweat, urine or feces, over a period of 2 weeks.
SKIN’s Injection Lipolysis treatments require no recovery period; however there may be some swelling and bruising at the injection site for several days after treatment. There is usually an increase in warmth in the treated area immediately following treatment and some discomfort during the 24 hours following the injection. Some patients experience mild to moderate redness, along with a stinging or itching sensation. Although patients can resume normal activities immediately following treatment, it is recommended that they avoid strenuous activities for a few days following the procedure.
Fat loss is usually noticed two weeks after treatment. However, studies indicate three consecutive treatments are recommended as the minimum required to ensure aesthetic improvement. Additional treatments are carried out for areas with larger fatty deposits in order to achieve the desired outcome. The actual number of treatments required will be based on individual characteristics including the severity of the condition, fat structure and personal goals.
Reports indicate that the fat loss achieved through Injection Lipolysis treatments typically does not return, but as with many fat loss programs, new weight gain can build up new fat in the same areas. A balanced diet along with regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle is recommended to optimize and maintain SKIN’s Injection Lipolysis treatments.
Thousands of Injection Lipolysis procedures have been safely performed and there have been no reports of adverse complications. Rarely, as with all other procedures, a client may have an adverse allergic reaction to one of the medications used.
