Fat Destruction
Salt Lake City, UT

Achieve the body you desire

Most people have “trouble spots” on their bodies — specific body parts with stubborn fat tissues that don’t go away despite regular workouts and balanced diets. If your stubborn fat pockets remain unresponsive to your best efforts, it might be time to consider cosmetic treatment.

At Vilate Med Spa, we use the latest technology for non-invasive fat reduction Salt Lake City and Bountiful have to offer to remove the stubborn fat cells from targeted body parts, helping you achieve a lean and sculpted body.

What is Fat Destruction?

Fat destruction is the process of damaging or “destroying” the unwanted fat cells in your body. However, to understand how fat destruction works, you must understand what happens to the fat cells when you lose or gain weight.

Everyone has a uniform number of fat cells that stay the same for a lifetime. When you lose or gain weight, the fat cells become smaller or larger, but they stay the same in numbers. Traditional weight loss methods reduce the size of your fat cells, making you appear thinner. However, some people have excess fat cells in specific body parts, so traditional fat loss methods yield limited results.

Fat destruction procedures damage and kill the unwanted fat cells in specific body parts. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they get metabolized and expelled by your body’s natural processes. Once the fat cells are removed, your body can’t regain those same fat cells, though you can still gain or lose weight in other parts of the body. As such, fat destruction methods permanently sculpt or contour your body.

It’s worth noting that there are several possible means of destroying unwanted fat cells. Some cosmetic procedures freeze the fat cells, some use mechanical force, and some deliver radiofrequency energy to destroy the fat cells.

Treatment Options for Fat Reduction Salt Lake City

Evolve is a cutting-edge technology that delivers radiofrequency energy into the subdermal layers of the skin to heat the underlying adipose tissues until they’re destroyed. The technology includes 6 hands-free applicators that are attached to the targeted regions with excess body fat.

If your trouble areas are the thighs and abdomen, the applicators will be attached to those areas. The applicators deliver uniform radiofrequency energy into the skin’s deepest layers to heat and destroy the subcutaneous fat tissues.

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive RF fractional technology that destroys the unwanted fat cells while tightening your skin tissues. The Morpheus8 devices include microneedles that puncture the uppermost layers of the skin while delivering radiofrequency energy into the targeted layers of the skin with the unwanted fat tissues.

The radiofrequency energy destroys the unwanted subcutaneous fat tissues and encourages collagen production, which, in turn, tightens your skin tissues. The Morpheus8 device can address unwanted fat tissues in the face, neck, or other body parts.

Who Is a Candidate?

Fat destruction procedures are suitable for anyone with stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to traditional weight loss methods. However, fat destruction isn’t suitable for overweight and obese individuals, and it shouldn’t be confused with a bariatric procedure. There’s a limit to the number of fat cells you can remove safely — these procedures only help with body contouring, not weight loss.
