When beach weather returns, you want your body to look its best. But if you wait until bathing suit season to finesse your figure, you may not be ready in time. The solution? Use winter downtime to make sure your body is ready for summer.
At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, primary care physician Deborah D. Viglione, MD, and her team have multiple ways to help you get your body into swimsuit shape. Our medical weight loss strategies include medication, nutritional guidance, supplements, and activity instruction for healthy weight loss.
But we also recognize that for some people, those approaches don't go quite far enough to deliver the look you want. That's why we also offer body contouring, which provides the more sculpted shape many of our patients appreciate. Body contouring helps eliminate stubborn fat that you just can’t lose with weight loss and exercise alone.
Body contouring is a nonsurgical procedure that reduces fat in specific locations in the body, such as your hips, thighs, abdomen, and back. At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center, Dr. Viglione uses the FDA-cleared VelaShape® III from Candela.
It’s a safe, effective way to remove stubborn pockets of fat that you can't otherwise lose, revealing the more streamlined shape you’d like. VelaShape III is a remarkable tool that destroys fat, reduces cellulite, and tightens skin.
VelaShape III uses a process known as vacuum manipulation to draw fat cells up toward the skin. Then, the device uses gentle light and radiofrequency energy to direct heat at targeted fat cells. The heat helps destroy fat cells, which are then absorbed and eliminated by your body.
Your skin may feel warm and appear slightly red after your treatment, but those sensations usually subside after a few hours. Body contouring with VelaShape III is painless — in fact, many patients say it feels as relaxing as a hot stone massage.
A VelaShape III procedure takes less than an hour, and it can be done on any skin type at any time of year. Because it takes time for your body to flush away the dead fat cells, you notice your new body contour gradually in the weeks following treatment.
Typically, patients need several treatments depending on the amount and location of fat deposits as well as your treatment goals. Starting your treatments this winter means you’ll be ready to show off your summer body right on time.
Nothing can replace weight loss and exercise for getting your body in shape. But when stubborn pockets of fat remain despite your best efforts, body contouring with VelaShape III can provide the results you desire.
