Fight abdominal fat with these 3 treatments

Dear friend,

Today I would like to recommend three treatments to combat abdominal fat. As we well know, abdominal adiposity is not only an aesthetic problem but also a functional one that affects a good portion of the population, whether they are men or women, regardless of their age.

Belly and hips are two areas of the body where fat tends to accumulate the most, due to various factors: lifestyle, genetics and hormones. Although they are the critical areas par excellence in men, they also represent two areas of localized fat accumulation for many women, especially for those with a “pear-shaped” and “apple-shaped” body.

It is an accumulation of fatty tissue deposited along the sides (the famous “love handles”) and in the abdominal area and which, if untreated, in addition to the anti-aesthetic effect, represents a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes.

This problem is mainly due to an incorrect diet, combined with an unhealthy lifestyle and lack of physical activity. All factors which, if neglected, further aggravate this condition.

A multidisciplinary approach is recommended, either with the intervention of a nutritionist in combination with aesthetic treatments, or of an aesthetic doctor,depending on the starting condition.

Belly and hips slimming is one of the toughest challenges, because our body often keeps these fat deposits as the last energy reserve to exploit.

First of all, my dear friend, I would suggest to ask your beautician to carry out an analysis of the localized adiposity through the use of contact thermography, a special technology based on the use of microencapsulated liquid crystal plates which allow to identify the layers of subcutaneous fat showing them through high-resolution color images: in this way it is possible to distinguish between soft and hardened adiposity and to set the most correct treatments.

Since this is a non-invasive exam with no contraindications, it can be repeatedly performed over time to view the progress of treatment.

Once this analysis has been carried out and the type of adiposity has been established, it is possible to move on to treatments such as:

  • Cryolipolysis: available in both aesthetic and medical-aesthetic versions, it is based on the principle of freezing, i.e. bringing the treated area to temperatures close to zero. In this way, a process of cellular apoptosis is activated which leads to the death of fat cells and their following expulsion via the lymphatic system.
  • Laserlipolysis: a non-invasive liposuction based on the use of a high-frequency laser which selectively melts the fat cells through the heat released by the laser itself. This treatment is also indicated for skin laxity.
  • Ultrasonic Cavitation: through the use of ultrasounds, the adipose cells implode and break up gradually and painlessly, till they are expelled through the lymphatic system.

These are effective and minimally invasive treatments that allow right away the return to normal everyday activities. For all of the three, a proper hydration is strongly recommended in the following hours, in order to facilitate the disposal of all accumulated toxins.

Remember, my dear friend, that the secret of any beauty treatment lays in our eyes: they will help us perceiving ourselves as beautiful. As Sophia Loren said “nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful”
