Non-Invasive Fat Removal Treatment: What to Expect?

 In Blog

Non-invasive fat removal treatments are different types of procedures that get rid of fat without having to penetrate the skin. These treatments burn and kill fat cells in different areas of the body. Unlike liposuction, which sucks the subcutaneous fat out of the body, non-invasive fat removal treatments can do away with fat in many different ways such as cryolipolysis, radiofrequency, heat, and more. Interested in doing a non-invasive fat removal treatment? Here’s what to expect: 


CoolSculpting is an exceedingly popular non-invasive fat removal system that employs what is called ‘cryolipolysis’ – a fancy name which literally means ‘fat freezing’. Just as the process and name imply, CoolSculpting freezes subcutaneous fat cells, effectively killing them. The dead cells are naturally eliminated by the liver and kidneys over the course of two to four months, and the area that once housed the now dead fat cells will look slimmer and more toned.


Another state-of-the-art non-invasive fat burning method, UltraShape employs concentrated sound-waves which target subcutaneous layers of fat and kill them. Touted to be more accurate than freezing methods, and far more reliable than procedures that rely on thermal energy (i. e. heat or lasers), it is famed for being able to provide visible results in as little as ten days after treatment.

SmartLipo and SlimLipo

Two of the most famous non-invasive fat removal systems available, these two have been around for quite a while. Employing specialized lasers or LED (low-emission diodes) lights in order to target subcutaneous fat, these machines combine high-frequency light-waves with low-wavelengths to target collective pockets of fat found in the body. Just as effective as liposuction, but just a little bit invasive, what with the need for local anesthesia to numb the area that is receiving treatment. These methods have been eclipsed by more modern machines, however, such as UltraShape.

Benefits of non-invasive fat removal treatment

Non-invasive body contouring has been compared to liposuction, although the benefits and results that one can derive from can’t really measure up to liposuction. For starters, because it is not invasive, it doesn’t deliver drastically visible results. Due to the different methods used in non-surgical body contouring, each machine will deliver visible results at different rates. It must be said that while non-invasive methods are beneficial for just about anybody, people who have negligible areas of fat and people who generally keep themselves fit but have some flabby areas that cannot be corrected through mere exercise or toning will benefit greatly from the procedures. It is, however, not advised for individuals who have large pockets of fat and want instantaneous results, nor is it an excellent cosmetic procedure for persons who suffer from obesity and need to shed pounds quickly.

Risk factors 

One of the reasons why non-invasive methods are not advised for people who need to lose weight quickly (for whatever reason – medical, cosmetic – or both) is because the procedures themselves do not really remove fat cells, but rather they simply kill them (as in the case of the freezing methods) or reduce their size (as in the case of some laser and sound-wave methods). Either of the two can’t promise permanent fat loss since one will eventually regain the lost pounds if the procedures are not supplemented with diet and exercise geared towards weight maintenance.
