The festive holiday season brings two things: food and the gained weight that comes with it.

 

Overeating is just a way of life for the Christmas period. 🎄🎅🎁

 

Let’s be honest, too: who was constantly watching what they eat or drink during the most festive season of the year? 

 

Not me, not you. Am I right?

 

So, it’s not surprising that Christmas holiday weight plays a role in stress for many people at the start of the new year.

 

It does me.

 

Those Christmas treats can easily undo hard work that took months of focus and hard work. All those strenuous workouts and several diets. But we all do it. It’s not Christmas without a calorie burnout.

 

With all of that said, how can we get our bodies back to where we were quick?

 

I want to share one of my secrets for the start of a new year…

 

NON SURGICAL BODY CONTOURING!

Did you know that non surgical body contouring is a great way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat without dieting or going under the knife? 

Yep!

 

It can tighten and reshape sagging skin without surgery!

 

And for me, it’s a great way to start the year, as I look forward to warmer months and booking that summer sun holiday. Body contouring, for me, is just part of that process.

 

BODY CONTOURING: WHAT IS IT?

The body contouring procedure is ideal for targeting and removing pockets of fat in your body.

 

My ideal holiday plan is to slim down for a beach body figure. That’s easier said than done, especially with stubborn fat in a few areas, like the abdominal area, thighs, bum, or arms.

 

Sad but true, there’s no way for diets or workouts to manage particular regions, and they take months to see any results. The good news is, that’s possible when body contouring is done.

 

Targeted regions can have their fat cells removed thanks to body contouring. Excess skin tissue and skin tissue tighten, which is great for giving a person a sculpted, defined look.

 

The best part is that since these targeted fat cells are moved, they can no longer be regained.

 

Is it magic? Not quite, but it is modern technology with proven results. I see that with patients in clinic every week.

DOES WEIGHT GAIN GET PREVENTED BY BODY CONTOURING?

At this point, it should be noted that body contouring is not a procedure meant for weight loss.

 

Since there are many fat cells in the human body, whether a person loses or gains weight, the fat cells end up growing or shrinking as a result. Some body parts have more fat cells, particularly stubborn pockets of fat that will stay despite exercise and dieting.

 

Body contouring procedures alter the fat cells of targeted regions. You cannot regain those same fat cells once they have been removed, because the remaining fat cells are not the same.

 

So, suppose you increase or decrease your body weight. In that case, the remaining fat cells in your body won’t shrink or expand as quickly as they usually would, providing a more permanent sculpted look.

 

BODY CONTOURING: BEFORE OR AFTER THE HOLIDAYS?

The timing of taking on body contouring depends entirely on a person’s goals. Pre-holiday body contouring will be excellent for a chiselled, slim, toned look and bikini body, making family photographs last a lifetime.

 

On the other hand, post-holiday body contouring is great for slimming down quicker after the season’s festivities. It’s a great way to flatten the “holiday bump” while getting back into a calorie deficit dietary workout routine over the next few months.

 

BODY CONTOURING TREATMENT

It is recommended that at least 6 sessions be done on the face and 8 sessions on the body to achieve maximum results. A weekly treatment schedule is recommended. A good body contouring clinic will tailor each treatment to the individual client’s needs.

 

After the third or fourth treatment, you should see results. Many clients at Calveo noticed smoother, softer skin after the first session. You should monitor your progress after each session. Taking photos is a great way to spot the changes.

 

The results achieved are permanent, as the targeted fat has been exploded. To maintain the results, you must continue to follow a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise.

 

In spite of the fact that the treatment is not painful, the skin must be heated up to 45 degrees to achieve the desired result. Some parts of the body are more sensitive, so some discomfort may be experienced.

 

The skin may appear red after each treatment. The redness will subside over time. Treatment can take between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

 

Here at our clinic, we strongly recommend that treatment sessions be no more than 10 days apart to achieve the optimum result.

 

We also suggest that those who are the best current candidates for body contouring have pockets of cellulite and/or excess body fat that they cannot get rid of through diet and exercise alone.

 

In addition to sagging and wrinkles, patients must also lose elasticity in their skin. For safety reasons, the patient may not receive this treatment if the following applies: Here at Calveo, we conduct a complete medical inspection before any treatment to ensure suitability for treatment.

 

  • The treatment area is inflamed or infected
  • Cancer is present or has been diagnosed
  • Any degenerative neurologic disease or any other disease stimulated by the heat around the treatment area (e.g., Herpes)
  • An internal pacemaker or defibrillator
  • In the treatment area (excluding dental implants)
  • Uncontrolled thyroid disease
  • Varicose veins
  • Women who are pregnant or undergoing an IVF procedure
  • Are at risk for skin diseases
  • Associated with silicone implants and injections.

 

As the applicator gradually warms, your skin will be gradually heated until it reaches the desired temperature and stays within the temperature range. However, if you feel it’s too hot, just let the operator know, and they’ll lower the temperature.

 

Body contouring treatments are cumulative and likely to make you feel relaxed. As a result, your results will continue to improve even after your final treatment.

 

Since the face and body continue to age after this period, maintenance is recommended every 6 to 12 months.
