Fixing cosmetic issues is one of the main goals of the technological developments in the aesthetics industry. Skin irregularities are the most common issues that medical spas are focused on treating. People look for different treatment methods to have these problems treated. However, another type of cosmetic issue is getting more focus in the development of treatments within the industry. These treatments involve weight loss and cellulite reduction. This article will show readers some of the common types of treatments that are offered by medical spas to treat these issues. In addition, the article will also focus on slimming body wraps, which is one of the newer methods that is gaining popularity.
The buildup of fat underneath the skin naturally adds to the weight of a person. In addition, it also forms cellulites on a person’s upper arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. Cellulite looks like dimples on the body of a person. This is due to the fact that the fatty tissues push through the fibrous bands that connect the skin and the muscle called the septae. This causes the skin to be pulled down forming small pockets on certain areas of a person’s skin. Cellulite appears more often on women than on men. Factors like sex, genetics and a person’s lifestyle can cause the formation of cellulites in a person’s body. This is a structural issue that cannot be simply removed by just exercising. This is why women usually find treatments to remove these irregularities from their bodies.
Throughout the years, medical experts have been able to find certain methods in reducing the formation of cellulite by focusing treatment on the septae. Different types of methods were developed that may either be invasive or non-invasive. For severe cases, medical experts would even use surgery to treat cellulite formation. The issue with cellulite treatments is that most of these cannot permanently stop its formation due to the fact that the production of fatty tissues does not stop. To give you a better idea on how some medical spas treat this type of structural irregularity, you may refer to the following:
o This minimally-invasive treatment procedure requires incisions to be made on the areas on the skin with cellulite formation. Tiny laser probes will then be used to apply heat on the tissues underneath the skin. This will then cause the fibrous septae to be released and reduce the appearance of any skin irregularity. In relation to weight loss, the heat applied underneath the skin will also reduce the subcutaneous fat layers. There will be a need for general anesthesia to be used so that the patient will not feel pain during the procedure.
o This procedure is also considered as a minimally-invasive treatment in reducing cellulite formation. Carbon dioxide gas is injected into the subcutaneous tissue underneath the skin. A numbing cream will be used so that the patient will not feel any pain when the needle is injected. Patients should only feel pressure building up underneath the skin due to the expansion of the carbon dioxide gas. This treatment method is done to dilate the blood vessels and increase the flow of oxygen into the tissues. The fat cells will eventually reduce in size but will not totally disappear. The skin will appear smooth for a temporary duration before the fat cells start to grow in size again.
o This is another minimally-invasive procedure that involves creating an opening on the skin to gain access to the septae. The fibrous bands underneath the skin are then manually cut to release the tension that has built up under the skin. The therapist will evenly spread out the subcutaneous fat so that the skin will have a smoother appearance. During the period when the skin is cut to gain access to the septae, local anesthesia will be given to the patient so that pain will not be felt during treatment.
o This is another one of the minimally-invasive treatments that uses injections to treat cellulite formation. It is one of the newer methods and is focused on injecting on the buttock of the patient. The QWO solution that is injected is a type of medicine that is FDA-approved. It is made up of bacterial enzymes that are known to eat up the fibrous band underneath the skin. The septae gradually dissolves, and the skin will get a smoother and fresher appearance. The process involves three rounds of injections that are spaced 21 days apart. The results may take 3 years before the patient needs to go back for another 3 rounds of treatment. This method is not advisable to patients who are allergic to collagenases.
o As a minimally-invasive treatment method, there will be a device that features a vacuum-assisted microblade that oscillates underneath the skin. While oscillating, the microblade cuts through the fibrous bands. For this to be possible, the vacuum sucks up the skin so that the microblade will have enough space to reach and cut through the fibrous bands. As the bands get cut and removed, the skin will smoothen.
For those who are not comfortable with invasive treatments, they can go to medical spas that offer alternative treatments for weight-loss and cellulite reduction. One of the best alternatives that have been developed are slimming body wraps. This is a treatment that involves wrapping the patient with grains of bitter orange extract. After some time, the patient is then applied with concentrated serums. Body wraps are actually made for people to reduce their sizes and are not focused on weight reduction.
One of the first things that body wraps help remove is the excess water inside the body of the patients. When fat cells are full of toxins, they increase in size. However, body wraps have detoxifying features. This makes it possible for the fat cells to release those toxins. These toxins and the excess water are released by the body as the patient sweats during the treatment session. The size of the fat cells will then reduce and the skin will become flatter reducing any signs of cellulite. With regards to the longevity of the results, it would still depend on the lifestyle of the patient because regular intake of foods and drinks that are full of toxins will increase the size of the fat cells.
If the patients do not change their habits and still do not eat and drink healthy foods and beverages, then their sizes will eventually grow after some time, and they may need to go back to the medical spas for body wrap treatments. Patients should also consider that medical spas have different ways of applying body wraps. There are differences in the treatment solutions that are used by medical spas.
Other than detoxifying the fat cells inside the body to reduce their sizes and lessen the appearance of cellulites, this type of treatment method has multiple benefits. For body wrap treatments that include exfoliation stages, these are also good methods for removing dead skin. This would give patients smoother complexions. Another of the benefits a patient will receive during a session of body wrap treatment is the moisturization and hydration of the patient’s skin. This helps improve and nourish the skin condition of the patient. During the treatment process, the patients are given some time to just relax after the body wrap has been applied. This helps the patients clear their minds and catch a quick nap while enjoying the beautifying effects of the body wrap.
Even though a body wrap treatment does not have serious health risks, a patient should still consider following some safety tips when availing of this type of treatment from medical spas. Here are some tips that patients should always consider:
