Diet and exercise are necessary for a healthy lifestyle and to achieve your desired look. However, diet and exercise can only take us so far. For many, diet- and exercise-resistant fat makes it hard to achieve the full results we seek. This is often due to genetics or how the body changes during pregnancy. In these cases, many patients opt for surgical procedures like liposuction. However, if you want to lose belly fat or reduce fat from other areas of the body without surgery, we can help with non-surgical procedures available at Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center in Beverly Hills.
If you are at a healthy weight and want to lose belly fat, liposuction has likely crossed your mind. Most people wish to avoid surgery whenever possible, however. Enter an array of non-surgical body contouring procedures that can be used alone or in combination to help you lose belly fat without surgery. In our Beverly Hills medical spa, we offer many effective and popular options for fat reduction, including:
Depending on your needs and goals, we may prescribe one or more of these procedures to help you see the results you desire the most. Learn more about these procedures below and how they can be combined to help you lose belly fat and achieve the physique you are dreaming of.
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical treatment designed to help you lose belly fat and love handles (flanks) that are diet- and exercise-resistant. It is FDA-approved for the upper and lower abs, flanks, and many other treatment areas as well.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to freeze and eliminate fat cells. The process is considered safe because it uses a precise fat freezing temperature that doesn't affect surrounding tissue. Once the fat cells are frozen, they will die off, giving your body a chance to eliminate them naturally through your lymphatic system. Knowing this, many CoolSculpting patients also opt to have a Ballancer Pro treatment following their fat freezing procedure to speed up results, as it enhances circulation and lymphatic flow.
A sheet is placed on the treatment area to protect your skin from the freezing applicator. The applicator, which provides suction and precise temperature freezing, is then applied to the problem area. If you have two areas you want to have treated using CoolSculpting, we have two machines, allowing us to treat both areas simultaneously. When the CoolSculpting machine is turned on, the suction and freezing begins. You will feel the cool temperature at first, but this feeling will subside. You can watch television, read a book, respond to emails, or even take a nap during your 30-minute CoolSculpting experience.
While EmSculpt was designed to build muscle, a wonderful side effect of this procedure is also fat reduction. While targeting abdominal muscles, patients may also lose belly fat.
How does EmSculpt work? When your muscle tissue is subjected to supramaximal contractions, it must adapt, and it does so by reshaping the inner structure. This results in toning and muscle building. Studies show that the treatment increases muscle mass by about 15 percent while decreasing the amount of fat that's present by around 19 percent. The procedure has a high patient satisfaction rate and is FDA-approved
While EmSculpt can help you lose belly fat, it's not as effective on larger areas of unwanted fat. Your provider may recommend a combination of CoolSculpting and EmSculpt for best results.
While lying flat on your back, the EmSculpt paddle is attached to your abdomen. Before the device is turned on, you must remove your mobile device and other electronic devices from your body. This is for your safety. The EmSculpt machine then activates the paddle, which stimulates supramaximal muscle contractions. During your 30-minute EmSculpt procedure, 20,000 contractions are performed on your muscles. This builds muscle and burns fat, helping you sculpt your abs and lose belly fat.
The Exilis Ultra system combines radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to tighten skin and reduce fat. When targeting the abdomen, you can lose belly fat. Results aren't as dramatic as CoolSculpting, but if you have a small pocket of stubborn fat, Exilis Ultra can help. Your provider may recommend a combination of CoolSculpting and Exilis Ultra for best results, or offer EmSculpt for muscle building in addition to your skin tightening treatments.
Exilis Ultra on the belly area is a lot like getting an ultrasound. After applying a gel to the belly, your provider uses a handheld wand to go over your treatment area. The procedure feels like a warm, gentle massage as the radiofrequency and ultrasound waves stimulate collagen and elastin production to tighten the skin. The heat created by these technologies also melts fat, helping you conservatively lose belly fat.
The Ballancer Pro is an automated massage system that improves circulation and lymphatic flow to relieve aches and pains while improving skin appearance and reducing water weight. It's also used as a post-procedure treatment to help improve results and enhance healing. Patients who have opted for surgical liposuction or other plastic surgery procedures find that Ballancer Pro provides relief and reduced healing time.
If you've chosen to have a non-surgical body contouring procedure, Ballancer Pro can also help. CoolSculpting patients find that the increased lymphatic flow helps the body reduce and eliminate the frozen fat cells more quickly.
While we often recommend Ballancer Pro as a post-procedure add-on, it is also a great body contouring treatment on its own. If you have belly bloat, not belly fat, then Ballancer Pro can help relieve that bloat and flatten your tummy.
You will lie down on a bed while wearing what looks like a space suit. You can wear the pants, the jacket, or both, depending on your needs. The machine does all the work while you lie down and relax. Ballancer squeezes your body like a big hug and feels like a massage as it increases circulation and lymphatic flow. Ballancer Pro helps relieve muscle aches and pains while helping you lose water weight. Many patients lose about an inch around the waist following a Ballancer Pro treatment.
The best part about Ballancer Pro is that it can be used as an add-on treatment to get while you enjoy another treatment. Many patients who get facials with LED light treatments enjoy a full body massage in our Ballancer Pro machine during their light facial. Other patients will get an IV treatment. Get the most out of your time at Lasky Aesthetics and get double treatments. It's totally worth it!
Depending on your unique needs, we may recommend a combination of procedures to help you lose belly fat more effectively. For example, one of our patients had a CoolSculpting session to lose belly fat before a full EmSculpt treatment series to build muscle. Another had liposuction followed by EmSculpt. Many women who have Mommy Makeover surgeries enjoy Ballancer Pro for its ability to reduce post-surgical swelling and detox the body of anesthesia and antibiotics. And we already discussed how combining CoolSculpting with Ballancer Pro can speed up results.
