The difference between body contouring treatments – which is the best?October 1, 2017
With so many body contouring treatments on the market it can be hard to decipher a comparison, let alone decide which one is the best option for you!
So what is the difference between each treatment? We’ve summarised the differences for you below..
LipoBlast is non-invasive, high-intensity, deeply focused ultrasound technology designed to manipulate and permanently eradicate adipocytes (fat cells) in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. The treatment targets and reduces excess fat resulting in a more contoured body. It is advised only for mild to moderate fat accumulation, not the obese.
The LipoBlast machine is perfect for large areas of the body as it delivers macro focused ultrasound energy to large patches, such as the abdomen and buttocks to remove fat and reduce circumference in a safe and non-invasive way. It is considered to be an ideal alternative to surgical procedures, where the fat accumulation is not too excessive. For larger areas of fat accumulation, no machine will deliver nearly as good results as our experts with micro-cannula.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure that uses controlled freezing to destroy fat cells permanently and can be used upon loose fat rolls or localised areas of fat.
It crystallises fat cells, causing them to die. The remaining fat cells condense causing a significant reduction in the size of the area treated. With weight loss due to dieting the number of fat cells is not reduced, they just simply contain less fat. The fat rebuilds in these cells when you stop dieting. With Coolsculpting the fat cells are permanently destroyed. Treated fat cells that have been crystallised are permanently destroyed and will not re-grow.
Liposculpture is a refined form of liposuction. It is a safe, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that removes substantial amounts of fat from many different areas of the body. Industry leading Dr Michael Rich performs all liposculpture treatments at Specialist Clinics of Australia.
Liposculpture is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under a local anaesthetic delivered using the Tumescent anaesthesia method. Designed to maximise your safety, the mild sedation allows you to remain awake during the procedure.
Tightsculpt is an innovative and effective treatment that uses an advanced laser technology system through a combination of Ultra-long ND: Yag and non-ablative Er: Yag modes to
permanently reduce centimetres of fat from the body, tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Patients will feel a warming sensation in the treated area throughout and directly after
treatment. Ultra-long ND: Yag causes bulk tissue heating by concentrating energy delivery subcutaneously, causing apoptosis of the fat cell (cell death) enabling permanent fat reduction. Non ablative Er: Yag uses intense superficial heat which stimulates collagen contraction and initiates neocollagenesis (the process of making new collagen) to smoothen the area and reduce cellulite.
Ultrasound for Cellulite
Ultrasound for Cellulite is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment to smoothen the appearance of lumps and bumps (cellulite) permanently and painlessly to treated areas. Ultrasound for Cellulite delivers ultra-focused ultrasound into fat tissue to dissolve fat cells and reduce the appearance of cellulite. After the ultrasound has been applied, contents of the fat cells are released into the body’s tissue, it is then absorbed and processed out of the body by the liver. Patients will feel a tingling or warmth sensation in the treated area throughout treatment.
