Spring break is just around the corner, and many people are trying to get ready for the beach. Sometimes those trouble spots can be tough to shape up, so that's when procedures come in handy.
We found out about three non-invasive remedies at Renew Body Contouring in Houston. "One of our first solutions is older technology called Bella Contour. It uses ultrasound to heat up the lipids inside the fat cells along with electrical pulse therapy that agitates those fat cells, breaking them open, then causing them to shrink and at the same time, allowing blood and collagen to flow through so that it tightens the skin. When you have a little bit of fat or cellulite to try to get rid of, this is a great procedure that's done in a multitude of treatments. This is $149 per treatment, and we suggest 10 treatments," explains Spokesperson Katina Kearns.
Another option is something called Fractora Tight FX. "It also uses heat and radio frequency. It's one of the latest machines and best machines on the market! It's one of the best when it comes to shrinking and killing the fat cells and increasing collagen in the area at the same time. No other machine really does everything the way this does. It uses kinetic pulse to help pierce the fat cells, damaging them, which is what makes the fat cells go into apoptosis which is how they die and so you get permanent fat layer reduction but at the same time, it heats up the skin and allows that skin to tighten. She'll do six treatments and it will go about an inch to an inch and a half below the treatment area, so we're hopefully going to see her lose about two dress sizes. Pretty Drastic results. Priscilla came here, because she had two children and wants to get rid of that mommy belly. She's back in the gym but not able to get that tight abdominal area, so we're only treating abdominal area," says Kearns.
It costs $200 per treatment and six to eight treatments are recommended, depending on elasticity in the skin.
Kearns says, "If you can pinch, pull, or grab it, we can freeze it off! That's happening here with CoolSculpting. It's one of the most recommended devices when it comes to getting rid of fat. This patient is doing an area of back fat. She has a bulge of fat under the bra line. We connect an applicator to that area, and it will be there for about an hour. She'll lose 25-30% of fat in that area in one area, and that is permanent. This is costing her $650, and no more bra fat," says Kearns.
