Does nonsurgical body contouring work?
Nonsurgical body contouring is an excellent way to target small deposits of unwanted fat and have the body you desire. San Jose, CA patients can achieve fantastic results while forgoing a more invasive procedure by reducing areas of subcutaneous fat that have become resistant to diet and exercise. At Sereno Santé, we offer the innovative technology of Alma Accent Prime, which combines radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound energy to deliver heat beneath the skin's surface to reduce unwanted fat and tighten mild to moderately loose skin. Common areas for nonsurgical body contouring treatment with ultrasound and RF energy are:
- Upper arms
- Upper back or bra area
- Lower back or "love handles"
- Abdomen or midsection area
Can I reshape my body with this procedure?
The Alma Accent Prime technology is a temperature-controlled device suitable for all skin types and will not harm or burn the surface of the skin. However, it is not designed to be a weight-loss treatment. The ideal candidates for this minimally invasive body contouring procedure are healthy individuals at or near their ideal body weight looking to achieve a leaner, tighter figure without a surgical procedure. During a consultation, Dr. Chakerian will listen to your aesthetic concerns and create a treatment plan to determine if you are a good candidate for nonsurgical body contouring.
When can I get back to my active lifestyle?
With nonsurgical body contouring, it requires less recovery time when compared to more traditional cosmetic procedures. Afterward, treated areas may be slightly red and inflamed, and you may feel sore. However, you can return to your regular schedule, including heading to the gym or exercising, if you feel up to it. You should listen to your body and if you don't feel like exercising, then take a day or two off. The positive results will continue to develop over 10 – 12 weeks after treatment, and Dr. Chakerian will determine how many sessions will be needed for optimal results. A healthy, active lifestyle will help you maintain your fantastic results and enjoy how your body looks.
