Getting rid of love handles can be near impossible with diet and exercise alone. This stubborn area of the body often carries excess fat that does not go away without additional intervention. Thankfully, there are numerous treatments for getting rid of love handles, none of which require invasive surgery.
Non-invasive treatments, such as Zeltiq CoolSculpting, Venus Concept, and TruSculpt, can improve the appearance of love handles significantly. These treatments use unique mechanisms to reduce excess fat in the area, and some treatments even tighten the overlying skin for a smoother appearance.
Zeltiq CoolSculpting was one of the first treatments to effectively remove fat from the love handles. Previous technology had allowed for temporary improvement of the love handles, but CoolSculpting was one of the first treatments to actually remove fat cells from localized areas of the body permanently. Zeltiq CoolSculpting works by a process called cryolipolysis, which ‘freezes’ the fat cells until they are broken down. The body’s own immune system then flushes out the fat cells from the body. The result is a 20% reduction of fat in the area treated. Most patients require only one treatment, though subsequent treatments each reduce fat cells in the area by an additional 20%.
Venus Concept works to get rid of love handles by two separate mechanisms; bipolar radiofrequency energy and magnetic pulses work together to not only reduce fat on the love handles, but also to tighten the skin for a smooth appearance of the area. A series of Venus Concept treatments produces a significant improvement in the appearance of love handles, without any pain or downtime.
TruSculpt improves the appearance of love handles, by using radiofrequency to get rid of excess fat in the area. One or two TruSculpt treatments deliver significant fat reduction, as well as tightening of the overlying skin. The result is excellent toning and sculpting of the midsection, with a significant reduction of the love handles. The hour-long, pain-free treatment utilizes the newest innovations in fat removal to get rid of love handles.
Zeltiq CoolSculpting, Venus Concept, and TruSculpt treatments for getting rid of love handles are all performed at the Body Treatment Center in Manhattan.
