Fat facts and how to get rid of stubborn fat?

Are you feeling self-conscious now the sun is out? Are there areas that just will not budge even with healthy eating and regular exercise? With a little education on adipose tissue and a non-invasive treatment program will help

First of all, there are 2 different types of fat (adipocytes) both have different functions. White adipose tissue stores energy reserves as fat, whereas the metabolic function of brown adipose tissue is lipid oxidation to produce heat. A good balance between them is important to maintain energy homeostasis.

We also have Visceral and Subcutaneous adipose tissue. Visceral adipose tissue is a hormonally active component of total body fat lining internal organs. Visceral fat is a type of body fat that is stored within the abdominal cavity. It is located near several vital organs. Subcutaneous adipose tissue is found underlying the skin in the abdomen, hip, thigh, and gluteal locations, and is mostly composed of mature adipocytes each filled with a single lipid droplet that can vary in size.

Subcutaneous fat is soft, and there are many options for treating this type of fat. Lifestyle modification works for some people. Cool Sculpture and Laser Lipo is also an option for the removal of excess Subcutaneous fat. However, for visceral fat, the only option to getting rid of it is good lifestyle modification, good eating habits and physical activity.

At True Dermal Clinic we can help remove and contour unwanted Subcutaneous adipose tissue deposits. Our treatments and scientifically proven to liquify the fat contents within the fat cell shrinking it in size and then freeze the cell causing cell death for permanent removal of the fat cell. A combination of treatments can eliminate fat, Laser Lipo to liquify the adipose content and cool sculpture to freeze and remove adipose tissue deposits.

Laser Lipo is a non-invasive body contouring treatment using cold, low level laser technology to liquify the fat within the fat cells. This is then released into the interstitial fluid around the fat cell and is flushed to the liver to be converted into energy and burnt off by the body. During the treatment laser pads are place on the skin, the lasers penetrate past the top layers of skin into the layers that contain fat cells causing them to release fat, glycerol and water into the fluid around the fat cells. The fat released from the fat cells travels to the liver and is converted into energy that you need to burn off with 20 - 30 minutes of vigorous exercise.

Cool Sculpture is an innovative non-invasive treatment freezes fat cells to the point of cell death, the fat cells are then naturally be eliminated by the body. The treatment was discovered when children sucking on icy poles were losing the fat from their checks. Two Harvard doctors researched this and discovered that fat is more sensitive to cold than nerves, muscles, skin and tissue. They discovered the exact temperature for maximum destruction of fat cells. When fat cells are exposed to cold temperatures they die, and the body then eliminates the frozen fat cells naturally through the lymphatic system over the next 4-12 weeks. Pair this treatment with Laser Lipo for the ultimate fat reduction.

A 1/2 hour treatment permanently reduces up to approximately 13% of the fat cells in the treatment head and a one hour treatment can permanently reduce the fat cells that are suctioned up into the treatment head by up to 30%.

Faster results can be achieved when the Cool Sculpture treatment is combined with the Laser Lipo treatment, this will assist the lymphatic system to flush the dead fat cells faster. Results can be achieved within 1- 4 weeks instead of 4 -12 weeks.
