Cosmetic surgery has gained immense popularity over the last few years and there is hardly any individual who is not aware of liposuction. While lifestyle changes have promoted obesity, liposuction has offered relief to obese individuals. Liposuction produces instant results thereby helping obese individuals lose fat in a short period of time. In the last few years, many people have opted for non surgical liposuction procedures because they are non-invasive. Although traditional liposuction is the gold standard, non surgical liposuction procedures offer numerous benefits and may prove to be the best choice for some individuals.
i-Lipo and Vanguish are the some of the latest non-invasive liposuction procedures. Although i-Lipo and Vanguish fall under non-invasive liposuction, they use different approaches to destroy fat cells.
i-Lipo is the latest entrant in laser lipolysis. This procedure allows you to lose fat without undergoing painful and dangerous liposuction surgeries. i-Lipo works by emitting low levels of laser energy. The laser energy produces a chemical signal in the fat cells which end up breaking down triglycerides into glycerol and fatty acids. The glycerol and fatty acids are then released through the cell membranes before being transported to various body tissues for use during metabolism. i-Lipo uses the body’s natural reaction to eliminate fats thus the procedure does not damage blood vessels, peripheral nerves and the skin. Experts recommend that you combine i-Lipo and physical exercises to ensure fat is disposed off more efficiently without being reabsorbed.
On the other hand, Vanguish is a non-surgical body contouring procedure that utilizes selective radio frequency (RF) to target unwanted fat in the flanks (love handles) and the abdomen. The radiofrequency energy destroys the fat cells without coming into contact with the skin, surrounding muscles or tissues. While undergoing this procedure, a patient will only feel a sensation of warmth without any pain or discomfort. A session lasts for about 30 minutes and a patient can resume his/her normal daily duties immediately.
