Non-surgical body contouring is an exciting alternative to regular liposuction but it’s still the “new kid on the block” in the cosmetic world. For this reason, there are an array of myths surrounding laser body contouring that can often deter people from giving it a shot. In this post, we’re going to debunk these myths and give you some rock solid facts about this treatment.
Myth 1: Non-Surgical Body Contouring Isn’t Effective
This is an area of aesthetics that is developing at a phenomenal pace, with new techniques and devices becoming available every year. The main thing to understand with non-surgical body contouring is that the results aren’t immediate and it takes a few sessions for patients to see results. Once patient expectations are well-managed in this regard, the treatment is considered very effective and much safer than surgical alternatives.
Myth 2: Non-Surgical Body Contouring Isn’t Affordable
In comparison to surgery, this treatment is extremely affordable and financing is often available. Downtime is also minimal with many patients returning to work immediately so your salary won’t take a hit.
Myth 3: Results From Non-Surgical Body Contouring Don’t Last
As with any aesthetic treatment, the patient must take variables such as diet and exercise into account. This treatment doesn’t prevent weight gain in the future, so once you are approved as a viable candidate, your expert technician will work with you to create a personalised plan that ensures you see long-lasting results.
Myth 4: Non-Surgical Body Contouring Is A Painful Procedure
This just isn’t true. Non-surgical body contouring will sculpt and smooth out your body without the pain and scarring associated with surgery. No anesthesia is required and any discomfort is extremely minimal.
Myth 5: Body Contouring Prevents Future Weight Gain
Body contouring treatments don’t prevent weight gain. They remove fat cells in the targeted area to reshape and refine the body, but these fat cells can still enlarge and cause weight gain in the future.This is why it’s imperative to follow a healthy diet and exercise plan to maintain your results.
Myth 6: The Treatment Poses A Lot Of Risks
Non-invasive body contouring treatments carry a very minimal risk. Your medical history will be reviewed before going ahead to ensure you are a viable candidate.
Myth 7: Non-Surgical Body Contouring Can Eradicate all Traces Of Cellulite
We’re afraid not! The appearance of cellulite occurs when persistent fat underneath your skin pushes up against the connective tissue. Body contouring can remove the excess fat, but there will still be some remaining and it cannot be completely eradicated. It can, however, be significantly improved,
Myth 8: This Treatment Is Only Suitable For The Abdomen/Thigh Area
False! Patients across the world are seeing amazing results from using non-surgical body contouring in a number of areas including the neck, chin, upper arms, and ankles.
