Ultrasound Weight Loss Treatment in Bristol, VA
Embracing Ultrasound Treatment
The use of ultrasound technology for weight loss has gained increasing popularity over the years. It is a noninvasive, nonsurgical alternative to weight loss treatment. The procedure is believed to be particularly effective in attacking hard-to-burn pockets of fat throughout the body.
Ultrasound Weight Loss Procedure
The ultrasound procedure typically lasts an hour. A lubricant is first applied to the area receiving treatment. Once the lubricant has been evenly distributed, an ultrasound probe is rubbed firmly over the target area. During the procedure, you may feel discomfort, soreness, a tingling or prickling sensation, or a change in temperature. You may also experience mild bruising, redness or swelling following the procedure.
The procedure is typically only performed by a qualified healthcare professional and may take place in a variety of settings (clinical, med spa, etc.) It is believed to be a relaxing procedure. Ultrasound treatment for weight loss is not intended for anyone below the age 18.
Making a “Sound” Decision
Ultrasound, weight loss treatment, works by pulsing high-frequency sound waves at areas of wanted fat. The fat cells are believed to be broken up by the sound waves, freeing them to be flushed out of your system. It is important to note that that this procedure is not recommended for anyone looking to lose more than a few pounds. This is for a couple of reasons. The first is because surgery does not entail the lifestyle changes needed to make a permanent change. Patients who choose to get cosmetic weight loss surgeries can regain the weight and potentially gain more weight than what they started with.
