Spot Reduction Treatment
Spot reduction essentially refers to reduction of fat from a particular area in the body. However, most people including fitness experts believe that it is a misguided view and it is impossible to reduce fat in a specific region by exercising that part of the body alone. On the contrary, the excess amount of fat in the entire body is lost as a result of diet and regular exercise.
Very often, women crave for slimmer thighs or smaller buttocks while men desire a flatter stomach or smaller waist. However, the truth is that exercising a particular area in the body where excess fat is deposited will not reduce fat in that region. For instance, even if you do 75 abdominal curls daily, you will not be able to reduce a fat stomach into a flat one.
Tummy crunches, leg lifts, torso twists or weight-training exercises will not help to reduce the fat in a particular region in your body. However, these exercise help to enhance muscular strength and endurance, and provide the benefit of improved muscle tone, which has a considerable slimming effect.
The best way to achieve fat loss is aerobic exercises including walking, jogging, cycling, stair stepping and swimming. Each of these exercises should be performed at least three times a week, for 30 to 45 minutes. You can also get involved in certain other daily activities such as housework, gardening etc. Also, it is good to perform resistance exercises three times a week to increase your muscular fitness.
In summary, spot reduction is a myth. In order to attain a strong, fit and healthy body, you should cut down excess fat through aerobic exercise and healthy eating habits while performing strengthening and toning exercises.
Ultrasonic Cavitation or Ultrasound Liposuction is one of the latest, non-surgical fat removal procedures. It does not involve surgery, anesthesia or hospital stay and no recovery time. The results are quite immediate.
Ultrasonic cavitation is very much similar to mesotherapy or lipodissolve as it is a preferred treatment for cellulite known as localized adiposity.
Ultrasonic Cavitation uses low frequency sound waves to destroy intractable fat cells. The common problem areas which are treated using this technique are the buttocks, abdomen, love handles, saddle bags, upper arms, inner knees and male breasts.
You will see immediate results after the first session, with optimum results soon after the next 2 to 5 sessions.
How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work?
A sound wave with a rating of 40 KHz to 5 MHz is used in ultrasonic treatment. This type of sound wave helps to destroy the fat cells without causing any damage to the surrounding tissues or organs. Thus, storage of fat is considerably reduced or eliminated.
