Shape Up This Summer - The Lowdown On Body Contouring

Shape Up This Summer

Summer is upon us (finally) and that means we all love to shed our clothes and enjoy the warmer weather – especially as we come out of lockdowns and emerge from what felt like possibly the longest winter ever! For a lot of us, stripping down to more revealing clothing can be daunting, especially if we have perhaps put on a few sneaky kilos thanks to aforementioned lockdowns.

There is nothing more disheartening than ticking all the boxes when it comes to losing weight, yet those troublesome pockets of fat remain. Quite often, regular exercise and sticking to a (well ahem, mainly!) healthy diet simply isn’t enough when it comes to certain areas of the body - especially where pockets of stubborn fat can accumulate and build up over time.

Don’t fear – you are certainly not alone. In fact, with 63% Australian’s (that’s 2 out of 3) over the age of 18 considered overweight or obese it should come as no great shock that Australian’s are continually on the lookout for fat-reduction options. As such, the demand for non-invasive body shaping treatments is higher than ever before. Ok then, where to start?

The market is flooded with all different types of fat-reduction methods, treatments and techniques. In fact, with one of the most popular methods of fat-freezing being in the news recently due to a certain super model experiencing side effects - we thought it might be helpful to provide some safe and effective alternatives for those looking to shape and tone their body. Here we breakdown 2 alternatives to fat-freezing treatments – one that is a tried and tested favourite, and another treatment that is new to our horizons.

Ultrasound Body Contouring

Ultrasound Body Contouring

Ultrasound body contouring is one of the most popular and enduring body shaping treatments currently available on the market today. If you are looking for that extra helping hand to assist you with getting your body ready in time for some beach-frolicking during the summer months then body contouring treatments are a comfortable, non-invasive and convenient solution. Designed to target those stubborn pockets of fat that exercise alone can be difficult to shift, treatments can enhance one’s physique – all without the pain, cost and downtime associated with more invasive methods, such as surgery.

Sometimes called fat cavitation, body contouring is often paired with skin tightening and cellulite reduction and as such, often a “body contouring” treatment will involve a combination of all 3 technologies in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

Ultrasound Body Contouring

Fat cavitation machines are designed to specifically target and treat the fatty areas only without affecting the surrounding skin tissue. The treatment involves heat and low frequency soundwaves which are applied to the target area. As the fatty tissue is disrupted, the fat cells broken down and the liquified cells are then dispersed throughout the body and slowly filtered out via the lymphatic system. During radio frequency skin tightening, heat is again applied to the dermal layers of the skin, causing the tissue to retract. Those hard-to-shift pockets of fat or cellulite are tightened and smoothed, with skin becoming more firm over time.

As well as eliminating those hard-to-shift pockets of fat – skin that is sagging or ageing on the face and body also can be tightened and toned. Skin elasticity, firmness and cellulite can all be effectively addressed thanks to increased circulation and elevated lymphatic flow.

LED Medical-Grade Fat Reduction

There is a new type of technology that is again, totally unique and different to other light-based treatments or fat-freezing machines. Based upon years of research, LED medical-grade fat reduction is the first of its kind on the market and offers a truly innovative approach to non-invasive fat reduction.

Unlike other fat freezing or non-surgical fat reduction machines, ReBorn treatments utilise military medical-grade power LED technology to achieve optimised, homogenous energy, allowing for uniform heat over the entire treatment area.

Thanks to a new type of light source that is hundreds of times more powerful than normal LEDs, ReBorn is able to achieve a temperature which is higher than other leading competitive fat-reduction devices, targeting fat cells beneath the skin without affecting the skin – triggering them to die.

So what does that mean for you? The even energy distribution and better heat coverage means optimal results that are safe, with no discomfort or downtime. Treatments with ReBorn are clinically proven to remove stubborn and unwanted fat cells for long term fat reduction results.

Both of these treatments can target virtually any part of the body you wish to tone or remove unsightly bulges from including the legs/thighs, stomach/abdomen, buttocks, upper arms, hips and even the face i.e., jowls.

One of the many benefits to non-surgical fat reduction and body enhancement programs is that treatments deliver fast, visible results with absolutely no downtime. Thanks to these technologies being completely non-invasive and non-surgical, the programs are designed to work conveniently alongside your lifestyle. Unlike liposuction or other invasive and costly options (such as liposuction and surgery), you can resume regular activities straight away, with little or no disruption your normal daily activities or work commitments.

The number of treatments required will be different for each person, depending on different factors such which area or areas you wish to target. A clinician will work with you to carefully discuss your individual goals and work with you to develop a personalised plan designed to target and treat your specific problem areas. For body contouring a course of 6-10 treatments typically is recommended, performed approximately one week apart from one another. You should start to feel the results after the first session, with improvements becoming more noticeable after the 3rd session. Treatments with Reborn consist of 3x 25-minute sessions, ideally spaced approximately 4-8 weeks apart with optimal results becoming visible after 12 weeks. For both treatments it is highly advised that you keep hydrated and drink plenty of fresh water as this will greatly assist your body in flushing out the dissolved fatty acids and aiding the detoxification process as a whole.
