Stubborn fat deposits, especially on the abdomen and thighs, are extremely common among both men and women. Men and women are genetically predispositioned to fat accumulation in specific areas of the body; for men, fat usually accumulates in the love handles region, while for women, abdominal fat and “saddle bags” on the outer thighs are common. It can be incredibly frustrating to follow a diet, exercise, and implement lifestyle changes only to contend with stubborn fat that just won’t seem to go away! Luckily, there are treatments out there can help you vanquish those fat deposits once and for all.
Cellulite, on the other hand, is found predominantly in women. Cellulite is the common term which refers to dimpled fatty areas usually found around the buttocks and thighs. 80 to 90 percent of women out of their teens experience some degree of cellulite, and it can occur even if you live a healthy lifestyle. As with stubborn, unwanted fat deposits, cellulite is a frustrating problem that many women deal with. However, there are also treatments available which are effective against cellulite.

While liposuction can be used to treat fat deposits and cellulite, many people don’t want to commit to surgery or just don’t have the time to spare for recovery. Advances in today’s technology means that surgery is no longer the only option for cellulite, however. Revolutionary new technologies have brought nonsurgical, noninvasive fat reduction methods for cellulite to the table! At the MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington DC, Dr. Isaac offers Exilis Ultra 360, CoolSculpting, Vanquish ME and Z Wave, which are popular, safe, and efficient nonsurgical fat reduction devices for stubborn fat and cellulite treatment.

Exilis Ultra 360
Exilis Ultra 360 is a proven effective device for both reducing cellulite, unwanted fat and tightening and firming the skin. Exilis Ultra 360 uses radiofrequency, or RF, waves in order to shrink fat cells and stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is essential for skin elasticity, and its production leads to tighter, smoother skin. This device is perfect for those who want to deal with unwanted cellulite as well as some small fat reduction!
Exilis Ultra 360 is a great device for treating loose, dimpled skin on the face and neck and body contouring. Dr. Isaac in Washington DC will determine which cellulite treatment is best for you during your individualized consultation!
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary device which uses cryolipolysis to freeze and kill fat cells, all without requiring a single incision. The CoolSculpting procedure is painless and effective, lasting only an hour or two. You will feel an intense cold sensation at first, but this will quickly disappear and you can spend the rest of the procedure reading, listening to music, doing work, or even napping! Results can be seen fairly quickly, but the most dramatic results will appear after two months, as the body needs time to flush the fat cells from its system.
CoolSculpting does not tighten the skin as it works, but it is meant for small fat deposits that won’t leave a lot of loose skin. If you have fairly small, unwanted fat in specific areas of the body that you would like to reduce, CoolSculpting might be perfect for you, but if your main concern is cellulite, then another device may provide a better result. Dr. Isaac in Washington DC can assess your problem areas and listen to your desired results in order to provide the most satisfactory treatment option for you.
Vanquish ME is ideal for getting rid of small areas of fat around the abdomen. It is a completely noninvasive procedure that never even touches your skin. The device encircles your abdomen and uses radiofrequency energy to target and destroy fat cells. During one thirty-minute session, you will feel a gentle heating sensation. This sensation is not painful, and some patients even describe it as pleasant.
In Washington, DC, Vanquish ME is perfect for people on the go who are at or near their ideal body weight but would like some help in reducing abdominal fat that won’t seem to disappear. Four thirty-minute sessions are usually all it takes to vanquish that stubborn fat!
Z Wave is a non-invasive treatment that uses radial shockwaves to stimulate collagen formulation to improve skin firmness and elasticity. It is used in conjunction with CoolSculpting to improve blood flow and enhance fat reduction. The procedure focuses on improving skin structure and connective tissue to even out the skin surface. There is no downtime and it can be used in combination with other treatments to improve results.
Body Sculpting and Skin Tightening Results
Results after the use of these nonsurgical body sculpting devices will generally take some time to appear, as your skin needs to adjust and process the treated adipose cells or produce the collagen necessary. However, results can also be long-lasting if you stick to your diet, exercise, and healthy lifestyle! How long results last will depend entirely on you. These devices aren’t meant for primary weight reduction, but instead to help you finish what you’ve already started and get the body shape that you want.
