Fat & Cellulite Reduction

Even if you exercise regularly and choose healthy options most of the time, it’s possible to still have troublesome bulges and cellulite that persist no matter what you do. At YES Medspa, we offer advanced nonsurgical body contouring options for fat reduction and cellulite treatment. Women and men from Vancouver and surrounding areas count on our aesthetic specialists for beautiful results and dedication to safety.

Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

Exciting advances in fat reduction treatments that don’t require surgery or downtime are among the most significant developments in the aesthetic field during the past decade. We offer a range of nonsurgical fat reduction procedures at YES Medspa, allowing us to tailor treatments to the specific needs of our patients.

The liposuction alternatives at our Vancouver-area practice include different technologies, but all have been proven to be safe and effective in targeting isolated pockets of fat.

The various treatments available include:

SculpSure®

Using targeted thermal energy, SculpSure reduces unwanted fat without damaging the skin or nearby, healthy tissue. SculpSure treatments create a smoother, more sculpted body contour without surgery or needles. Unlike devices that freeze the skin and fat, SculpSure doesn’t apply severe suction to your tissues. The treatments are comfortable, effective, and fast.

SculpSure is most effective when used to reduce fat in these areas:

  • Flanks
  • Upper abdomen
  • Lower abdomen

Results typically first appear about 6 weeks after the procedure, with the final outcome showing up after 12 weeks.

Venus Legacy™ Sculpt FX

These fat reduction treatments use radiofrequency energy and magnetic pulses to target bulges and cellulite. The heat generated by the radiofrequency energy not only destroys fat cells, but it also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres to promote tighter skin. Combined with the adjustable pulsed suction, Venus Legacy sculpts and slims the treatment area and minimizes the appearance of cellulite if it’s present.

BELKYRA®

The appearance of a double chin is one of the cosmetic concerns most often mentioned by men and women at our medspa. Until a few years ago, liposuction was the only option for reducing fat below the chin that caused a double chin. BELKYRA provides our patients with a nonsurgical option that minimizes fat below the chin without surgery. The treatment sessions (usually 2 or 3 separate treatments are needed) involve injecting a natural substance called deoxycholic acid that gradually destroys fat cells. The number of treatments depends on the patient’s cosmetic goals.

Cellulite Reduction

Even though cellulite is often associated with being overweight, women can develop cellulite even when they’re in good shape. That’s because cellulite occurs when connective tissue pulls down on the skin and creates the dimpled appearance on the skin’s surface. Besides Venus Legacy Sculpt treatments, we were to first med spa in the Vancouver region to offer Cellulaze®, a minimally invasive medical device designed to reduce cellulite in a single treatment.

What Is Cellulaze?

This breakthrough procedure targets the anatomy associated with cellulite to create smoother, tighter and healthier-looking skin.

Cellulite is caused by a number of subdermal changes, including:

  • An increase in the number and size of fat cells beneath the skin
  • Stretched connective tissue below the skin caused by the natural ageing process or weight gain
  • Uneven skin texture resulting from tissue hardening under the skin

Cellulaze addresses all 3 using laser energy under the skin to heat and melt away fat. At the same time, it helps regenerate collagen, restoring your skin’s youthful texture and appearance. It is the only procedure for cellulite that typically requires just one treatment yet lasts a year or more.

Your Cellulaze Experience

Although this procedure is most commonly performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation or general anesthesia is also available for patients with these unique needs. Dr. Mosher inserts a slender tube under the skin, then uses the tube to deliver precisely controlled, laser thermal energy to targeted areas, such as your hips, thighs or buttocks. The laser is designed to diminish lumpy pockets of fat and increase your skin’s thickness and elasticity, thereby achieving a smoother, sculpted look.

To achieve the most benefit, Dr. Mosher uses Cellulaze’s ThermaGuide™ technology to deliver a consistent, controlled flow of laser energy. In some cases, this treatment can also be combined with other procedures such as Smartlipo™.

Most patients will be able to shower and carry on with light daily activities within 24 hours of their procedure and return to normal exercise after approximately 10 days. To achieve optimal benefits from the procedure, Dr. Mosher may recommend lifestyle and nutritional changes that can help you maintain your results.
