TightSculpting can be an effective and easy way to get the body that you want without going through invasive surgery. At Key West Med Spa in Key West, Florida, we specialize in this fat removing and cellulite-reducing treatment that can have you looking your best in no time.
What Is TightSculpting?
This treatment starts by removing fat, making it especially effective for areas of your body that are difficult to alter with just diet and exercise alone. The treatment works through a process called Lipolysis, which essentially shrinks and eliminates your fat cells via laser. Once the cells are neutralized, your body’s natural processes can take over and flush them out of your body.
Next, the treatment tightens your skin, making it appear smoother and reducing the appearance of cellulite. It’s often been compared to liposuction, which is a far more invasive treatment. As your skin is being tightened, collagen has the opportunity to form, restoring a youthful and slim look to your body. At our practice, we can customize the treatment to meet your needs. If you only want your skin tightened, no problem! Talk to us for a thorough consultation.
Usually, these treatments only take between 20 minutes to an hour, and most people need eight treatments over the course of 16 weeks. Your personal treatment plan and schedule may vary.
Popular Treatment Areas
You can get this treatment done on just about any part of your body. Many people find it most effective on their abdomen, and we can do either your upper or lower abdomen or even both. The inner and outer thighs are another excellent area to have this treatment done, as are legs, love handles, and the chest area.
Although it’s not the same as a breast lift, many people find that simply tightening the skin of their chest can give the look of fuller or perkier breasts, and cure some of the sagging that comes with age. If you’d like to consider getting this treatment done in a different area of your body, just let us know.
How Long Does It Last?
Usually results last for two years, although you may be able to prolong them by getting maintenance treatments or by adhering to a healthy lifestyle. Talk to our team about what you want to achieve, and we will be happy to give you an idea of what you can expect.
A Cellulite Treatment
For many people, cellulite is an unfortunate and undesirable byproduct of age. Cellulite occurs when the fat under your skin is not evenly distributed, causing it to look lumpy. It usually happens on the lower part of the body and is more common in women than in men, although both can and often do get it.
Since this treatment works to tighten skin and eliminates unwanted fat cells, it can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Since it’s extremely difficult to get rid of cellulite without surgery, and most anti-cellulite creams simply mask the problem, TightSculping is an excellent option.
What Causes Cellulite?
There are plenty of things that can cause cellulite, but the biggest one is our genetic makeup. If you have cellulite in your family, you’re more likely to develop it yourself, although there are certain cases where this doesn’t happen. Additionally, if you have a higher body fat percentage, you’re more likely to have cellulite, especially on your lower body. Thin-skinned people can show more cellulite as well.
Women get it more than men because they have more fat naturally, and the fat is distributed in more visible areas. Additionally, cellulite can be a hormonal response, exacerbated by a poor diet, and become more visible after a weight gain or pregnancy. Although many people who have cellulite are also larger, it can happen to anyone of any size. It’s not necessarily a reflection of diet or lifestyle, and more genetically based, although diet and lifestyle can influence it.
Why Do We Get Cellulite As We Age?
Why Do People Opt for This Treatment?
Although we can change our bodies with diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes, some things are hard to alter. This treatment tackles areas of the body that are very tough to define even with the strictest exercise regimens. To make matters slightly more difficult, we also tend to experience slower metabolism with age, so it can be more difficult to lose weight anyway.
Loose skin and cellulite are other factors. Since we can customize this treatment to address fat removal, skin tightening, or both, it’s an easy way to zero in on and target what you want to change. Since it’s non-invasive, it’s also pain-free and simple.
There are several different benefits to getting this treatment done. This treatment is non-invasive, so you don’t need to worry about recovery time or any pain during your sessions. There are also no surgical incisions or any other factors like that, so people don’t even need to know that you’ve had this treatment done. You will simply look better and younger. Additionally, most people see results right away, or very soon after their treatment is completed.
These treatments also help people whittle away weight in parts of their body that diet and exercise don’t seem to reach. It can be enormously gratifying and a huge confidence boost to see your body looking the way that you want.
Good Candidates for Treatment
Before opting for this treatment, it’s important to have a consultation to make sure that it’s right for you. If not, we offer a whole other host of treatments that may be more appropriate. Don’t worry! Our team can certainly help you to look your very best. This treatment is a body contouring treatment, as opposed to a weight-loss one. Those who want to lose a substantial amount of weight might be better off getting liposuction or a tummy tuck. It’s best for those who want to lose weight in a targeted area and tighten their skin.
Ways To Make the Treatment Smoother
There are a few things that you can do to make the treatment go smoother. It’s important to be hydrated, so remember to drink plenty of water both before and after your sessions. Water can also help to flush out extinguished fat cells. Avoid too much sun. The treated area might be sensitive afterward. If you do go out in the sun, remember to wear sunblock and refresh it throughout the day. Otherwise, you can get immediately back to the business of living your life in your brand new body.
How to Keep Your Treatment Results Looking Great for the Long Run
If you want to keep your treatment results looking their best in the long run, there are a few lifestyle and diet changes that you can make to keep your weight down and cellulite at bay:
Make exercise a part of your weekly routine. Not only does it help you to keep your weight down, but it can also increase circulation and is an excellent way to combat stress. Even light exercise like walking can help you to regulate your weight.
Stress can cause cortisol spikes, leading to weight gain, sallow skin, and other cosmetic problems. It also wreaks havoc on our internal system. Although it’s impossible to eliminate stress altogether, we can take steps to keep it under control. One great way of taming stress is to exercise. Also getting adequate sleep and eating a balanced diet can tame stressors.
Eating well can help keep weight off and also help your skin maintain its elasticity. Many foods contain collagen, which helps our skin look youthful and bouncy. If you want a good collagen boost, reach for fish, eggs, berries, citrus fruits, and garlic. In general, it’s a good idea to try to eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet can also give you the energy to get out there and exercise, as well as keep your stress levels down.
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep is one of the best ways that our bodies recharge and build new cellular material. We need good rest to be able to accomplish daily tasks. There’s a correlation between lack of sleep and unhealthy eating habits as well, so make sure you get your eight hours of rest a night. There are plenty of apps and websites that can help you track and regulate your sleep patterns.
Staying hydrated can help your skin to look a lot more luminous, as well as curb excessive eating. Many times, we mistake thirst for hunger, so by simply getting enough water, we can cut back on our calorie intake. Water also helps our bodies to flush out toxins and old cells, which is why it’s so vital to drink plenty of water after your treatment. The quicker you can get your old cells out, the quicker new ones can be generated.
These simple lifestyle changes can help you to keep your results for the long run, and also boost your skin’s luminosity.
