Alternative Fat and Cellulite Loss Treatments

It seems that everywhere you turn now there is a great new bodysculpting or anti aging technique offered to attract the person who wants fast fat loss results without invasive surgical procedures! It is important for anyone who is considering such a procedure to be well informed before making a decision.

One of the very best things anyone can do to assist in overall fat and cellulite loss is to eat whole, natural foods, keep active and drink plenty of water! Having said that, not everyone feels they have the time or ability to do that (although with some simple changes it can become a part of your every day lifestyle).

• Lipodissolve and Mesotherapy are non surgical treatments that help destroy fat cells and improve appearance of cellulite. Lipodissolve contains additional “fat reducing” properties (including a soy lecithin substance) and Mesotherapy contains more vitamins and herbs. Through a delivery process of tiny needle injections, the treatments help to metabolize fat tissues that are then naturally excreted through your system. The procedure can sometimes be uncomfortable but results can be good. Down time with some bruising is about 2 weeks, and 6-10 treatments are recommended to start seeing results. Average prices range from $350-$700 per treatment.

• Liposuction is the surgical removal of pockets of fat to contour an area of the body and is performed under local anesthesia. A tube is inserted through an incision in the skin and fat tissue is suctioned out. There are several risks associated with the procedure that one should educate themselves on. There is bruising and discomfort associated with this procedure and patients should allow 2 weeks of down time. Mesotherapy is sometimes used afterwards to correct any lumpiness. Costs for liposuction range from $1400-$7000+ depending on the part of the body you are focusing on.

• The Ultimate Applicator is an herbal topical treatment that naturally breaks down fat cells and heals cellulite. It is a gel covered cloth that is easily applied and worn for a minimum of 45 minutes but can be worn overnight. The person is encouraged to drink lots of water to help mobilize the toxins. It is recommended a person wrap every 72 hours using the complementary Gel product 2x a day in between. While most people see immediate inch loss, a full body makeover can be realized in 30 to 90 days using a bottle of Gel and a couple of boxes of wraps each month. Cost for Gel is as low as $38 per month and for The Ultimate Applicator is as low as $49 for a box of 4 wraps on the Customer Loyal Program.
