What is excess body fat and what can we do to treat it?
Everybody, no matter how much we exercise contains a certain level of fat. This surrounds our vital organs, providing protection and also serves as an energy reserve. This is known as visceral fat and is physiologically essential however if the percentage of overall fat body mass becomes to high then this becomes 'excess fat'. Subcutaneous fat exists just under the surface level of the skin and is the main cause of holding extra weight. The proportions of this vary depending on your diet and exercise habits, genetics, hormonal changes and health conditions. To some people, this may be something that they do not want to have and so look for options to remove this excess fat.
Here at Klnik we have a variety of options to help you get you to feeling your best!
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.
