Nonsurgical body contouring
It’s often stated that weight loss is a simple formula. Eat less and move more. That might be true for lowering the number on the scale, but it doesn’t address the fact that heredity plays a big role in where fat decides to settle and hang on. There’s also a third demon that resists a sculpted look – sagging skin. Dr. Jeanine Downie of Image Dermatology helps patients throughout the Glen Ridge area love what they see when they look in the mirror. She shares this no-nonsense approach to body contouring without surgery.
There is no shortage of books and online resources to help you understand how to get maximum nutrition into your body with minimum calories and plenty of taste satisfaction. The basics are easy to remember, though. Drink plain water throughout the day. Eat fresh brightly colored fruits and vegetables. Dr. Downie recommends to eat the rainbow as she calls it. Opt for whole grains, and lean proteins and dairy. Eat sweet and salty snacks, rich desserts, and soda only as occasional treats. It just takes a little planning before a trip to the market, and some smart decisions at the restaurant.
Daily physical activity
Humans are omnivores. We were designed to eat a well-rounded diet. In a primitive culture that requires walking all day to forage for produce, and bursts of energy in the hunt for meat. Modern women and men don’t face those necessities, but our bodies weren’t mean to sit or stand all day. Just a half hour of physical activity daily burns calories, builds muscle, keeps joins moving freely, and reduces emotional stress. Which exercise method is best? The one that you’ll do! Pick something that works for your abilities and lifestyle and stick to it. Dr. Downie recommends that everyone exercise at least 4 times a week with 25 minutes of cardio and 25 minutes of weights.
You are eating right and moving more, but those stubborn hereditary fat deposits just won’t budge. It’s time to get help from Dr. Downie. FDA-cleared Exilis targets fat deposits with monopolar radio frequency energy. That ruptures the walls of fat cells causing them to spill their lipid content, but doesn’t injure surrounding skin or other organs. Your body harmlessly flushes the destroyed cells over the course of a few months, for noticeable reduction in inches. You must drink 10-12 eight ounce glasses of water a day. You will actually flush the fat cells out!! There are no needles, anesthetic, cutting, stitches, or risks associated with surgery. Just great results with no downtime.
There’s another benefit to Exilis. It tops off your non-surgical program of body contouring with effective skin tightening. As the RF energy is attacking fat cells, it also stimulates natural production of collagen in deep skin layers. Collagen is a mesh of strong protein fibers that thickens skin and gives it structure, for curves that look firm and sleek.
In most cases, effective body contouring doesn’t require surgery. It just calls for experience and technology you can count on. Call Image Dermatology today at +1 (973) 509-6900 to make Dr. Downie your partner in body sculpting.Back to Fat Melting Page
