What is bra fat and what can we do to treat it?
Bra fat is the term used to describe the accumulation of excess fat around the connecting area of the arms and decolletage. This generally occurs due to a higher percentage of body fat where the build up of fat cells becomes more apparent in that area. Most of the time this can be decreased with a good diet and exercise but sometimes this isn't enough. If you are struggling to diminish your bra fat Klnik may have the solution for you!
Cool sculpting - The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is an FDA cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment referred to as cryolipolysis. This treatment works by cooling the fat cells enough to kill or break the cell membrane of the adipose (fat cell). Remarkably the fat freezes faster than the surrounding tissue and therefore surrounding cells are not effected. The body clears away the debris from the broken cells naturally through the lymphatic system.
Aqualyx - Aqualyx is an aqueous solution containing the active ingredient, deoxycholate. This molecule has the ability to dissolve fat cell membranes in turn causing fat cell reduction. The fatty acids released in this process are then naturally removed by our natural metabolic processes. Deoxycholate is found naturally occurring in our liver and is therefore deemed safe and non-toxic to the body. This treatment leads to the permanent reduction of fatty tissue and so the area will not return back to its previous state.
We also offer a range of other treatments in which pair with excess fat removal. Radio frequency can be used to smooth and tighten skin which could have been stretched. Our emsculpt/bforce machine can also help building muscle back in the area such as the abdomen and glutes.
