Body Contouring Q & A

Why can I not get rid of lingering fat?

Taking the time and putting in the effort to lose weight and stay fit can be a challenge. When stubborn deposits of fat refuse to budge, all that hard work can seem fruitless. 

When you eat, your body converts some of that food into fat, which acts as a sort of stored energy. You have fat cells throughout your body, and each can expand and contract as needed. When you burn more calories than you take in, your body taps those fat cells for the energy needed to thrive. 

Today’s science shows that losing weight is about more than simply calories in and calories out. Everyone stores fat a bit differently, and some men and women have problem areas where fat lingers even after you’ve reached your target weight. 

What is body contouring?

Body contouring treatments use heat or cold to damage fat cells and prevent them from storing fat. At Donna Bella Laser MedSpa, they use the Pollogen Legend+Ⓡ radiofrequency platform for body contouring treatments. 

This technology directs radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of your skin, leaving the surface at a safe and comfortable temperature. The RF energy heats your fat cells to a temperature at which the cell structure is compromised and is no longer able to store fat. 

That fat is released and processed through your lymphatic system. The cell debris is also eliminated from your body. 

Is body contouring permanent?

Once targeted fat cells are eliminated from your body, they won’t regenerate, so your results are permanent. However, it’s important to understand that your remaining fat cells will still have the ability to expand and contract to accommodate more or less fat. 

Body contouring can reduce fat on your abdomen, thighs, upper arms, buttocks, hips, and back. Depending on the area being treated and how your body responds to the contouring process, you may need multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.  

That means your results could be altered if you gain a considerable amount of weight. Body contouring with Pollogen Legend+ is best suited for men and women who’ve reached a stable weight and are able to maintain those results.
