Do you have stubborn fatty deposits that refuse to budge no matter how diligently you diet and exercise? If so, body sculpting can help and is among the services available from Emma Doody, ND, of Renew Medical in Edmonds, Washington. When you’re ready to take action and permanently eliminate fat, call or set up a visit today online.
Understanding why it’s challenging to get rid of stubborn fatty deposits can help you think about how your body converts food into energy. Each time you eat, a portion of that food is converted into fat.
You have numerous fat cells throughout your body, but most are found in a layer just beneath the surface of your skin. Each of these fat cells can expand and contract to accommodate more or less fat.
Those cells get larger when you store more fat than you need to fuel your body. When you burn more energy than you consume, your body taps into those fat cells for fuel.
The problem lies in the fact that you cannot control which fat cells are accessed at any specific time. Because everyone stores fat a bit differently, you can reach a healthy weight and still have areas of your body where fat lingers.
Body sculpting works by using carefully controlled microcurrents to stimulate muscle contraction in targeted areas.
The effects of body sculpting can be altered if you gain a significant volume of weight after treatment. Body contouring is best suited for people who have reached and are able to maintain a healthy, stable weight.
Body sculpting can create impressive results by improving your contouring in problem areas, including your hips, abdomen, upper arms, thighs, back, and buttocks. It isn’t a weight loss treatment.
