What is Body Fat?
To combat body fat you need to know body fat. There are two main kinds of body fats in the body:
Visceral fat can be found surrounding your major organs, including the stomach, intestines, and liver. It can accumulate in the arteries as well. You do need visceral fat to ensure the health of your essential organs. However, if your visceral fat levels are high, you might be more prone to severe health complications, such as increased blood pressure, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Type 2 diabetes, and stroke.
You can find subcutaneous fat layered underneath your skin around your limbs and your waist. As with visceral fat, too much subcutaneous fat can also increase the risk of adverse health conditions such as heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes.
Subcutaneous fat is what most body contouring treatments target. That said, you still need to eat healthy and exercise to stay healthy. Not use having six-pack abs when your arteries are clogged with cholesterol.
Non-invasive Fat Loss Treatments You Can Find in Singapore
Non-invasive fat loss treatments have been gaining traction in recent years. With the advent of more affordable non-invasive body slimming technologies, more and more people have turned to no-cut procedure as an alternative to surgical procedures. However, it’s important to remember that these treatments do not combat visceral fat that is linked to chronic diseases. These non-invasive fat loss treatments only mainly treat subcutaneous fat.
1. Fat Freezing
Its scientific name is much cooler: cryolipolysis, though some brands market it as ‘CoolSculpting’. It’s a non-invasive treatment that reduces fat through the use of cold temperatures. Temperatures just reach below sub-zero to kill off fat cells but leave the surrounding tissues unharmed. Then, your body’s lymphatic system will flush out the dead fat cells out of your body and is less likely to reappear in your body.
Cryolipolysis may sound intimidating, but rest assured, it’s a treatment that’s already approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. Most salons have machines with suction cups that will pull the treated area into a probe or applicator, before lowering the temperature. After the treatment, the fat cells may take up to 4-6 months to leave the body. The newer innovations of this technology have proved to be even more effective, improving fat reduction by as much as 33%.
2. Laser Lipo
This is another futuristic-sounding body contouring treatment. Laser lipo, or laser-assisted liposuction, uses low-wave laser energy to eliminate fat from your body. Laser lipo is essentially the inverse of fat freezing in the way it eliminates your fat cells. It uses a laser to heat up and liquefy your fat cells, and then the lymphatic system helps flush the dead cells away. So, this treatment is mainly used on your abdomen and flanks.
You can expect smoother, firmer skin too, because this procedure can stimulate collagen elastin and collagen production. And, laser lipo may coagulate the small blood vessels in the area, which results in less bruising.
3. Radiofrequency (RF) Body Countouring
As we all know, collagen is behind the framework of your skin, giving your skin its firmness. When we age, our skin sags and we get crinkles because our cells produce less collagen. Most of the time, that happens when we’re around 35 to 40 years old.
RF Body Contouring uses energy waves to heat the deeper layers of your skin, your dermis. The temperature is controlled between (50–75°C). As with Laser Lipo, the heat can stimulate collagen production in your skin.
Studies have shown that maintaining a temperature over 115°F (46°C) for more than 3 minutes causes your body to produce heat-shock proteins. These proteins signal your body to create new collagen fibres.
And you don’t need to be worried about radiation risks, even if RF waves are a form of radiation. After all, WiFi signals, microwaves, radio waves are all different forms of RF waves. And, the radiation in RF body contouring uses 1 billion times less energy than X-rays.
4. Ultrasonic Cavitation
Also referred to as ultrasonic lipolysis, it uses ultrasonic radio waves to break apart fat cells. And then, yes, you got it right, the lymphatic systems help flush the fat cells away.
A safer alternative to liposuction, it doesn’t need any incision to break apart fat cells. That said, it’s not for losing a lot of weight. Ultrasonic Cavitation is usually used to combat small areas of fat and to help contour your body. This treatment is suitable for when you are: in good overall health, don’t smoke, and are within 15 pounds of your weight goals.
