Fat Loss Q & A
What is fat loss?
Fat loss refers to the process of eliminating excess adipose (fatty) tissue. When you’re overweight and have excess fatty tissue, you’re also more likely to experience heart disease.
At The Woodlands Heart & Vascular Center, the team encourages fat loss using the Ultraslim® stimulated lipolysis system. One half-hour treatment can reduce the circumference of your waist by up to 3.5 inches. Further, a series of appointments can eliminate annoying pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.
Who can benefit from fat loss?
Anyone who wants to reduce unwanted body fat and achieve a slimmer physique can benefit from fat loss. You might also benefit if you want to reduce your risk of heart disease in combination with healthy lifestyle changes like diet and exercise.
At The Woodlands Heart & Vascular Center, no two Ultraslim treatment plans are exactly alike. To ensure your desired results, your provider at The Woodlands Heart & Vascular Center conducts a physical exam and asks about your goals.
After gathering the necessary information, they design a custom treatment plan. That might mean one appointment or a series of appointments spaced several weeks apart.
What areas of the body can fat loss treat?
At The Woodlands Heart & Vascular Center, the team uses fat loss to treat pockets of fat affecting the:
- Lower back (love handles)
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
You might also benefit from treatment with Ultraslim if you have a double chin.
How does fat loss work?
Fat loss is an outpatient procedure that takes between 30-45 minutes. The UltraSlim machine is placed inches away from your bare skin and turned on against the areas requiring fat loss. The procedure is not invasive and does not cause any pain.
The tool emits targeted light energy that passes through your skin and into the fatty tissue. Over time, your fat cells heat up, causing the pores in your cell membrane to open. Ultimately, your body processes the fat with other waste, eliminating it once and for all.
Is fat loss safe?
Fat loss is safe and usually well-tolerated. The targeted light energy that the UltraSlim device emits is warm and soothing on the skin. Treatment is so comfortable that many people fall asleep during the procedure.
Are the results of fat loss instant?
Yes. Treatment with UltraSlim provides instant results. The team even has a 3D imaging workstation on-site that monitors your progress with before and after photos.
To ensure the best possible outcome, your provider may ask you to return for a series of follow-up appointments. Even so, most people achieve their desired results in six treatment sessions or less.
