Options for noninvasive fat loss reduction

While the surgical fat loss market (liposuction, bariatric reduction) has a long history, the noninvasive fat loss market is more cutting edge. New technologies have allowed for advances in the non-invasive fat reduction market so that they are more effective and can provide fat loss for everyone.  

The FDA-approved non-invasive fat reduction options available today are:

·  Cryolipolysis 

·  Injection lipolysis

·  Radiofrequency lipolysis 

·  Laser lipolysis or lipo laser (Emerald)


Cryolipolysis, is a procedure that uses low temperatures to target fat cells and kill them off. It’s effective for targeting stubborn fat located in the love handles, the back, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms.

Ideal candidates for fat freezing are those who are already close to their ideal body weight but just want to get rid of a couple of bulges and fit their jeans and clothes better.

During this procedure, clients may feel a cold or tingling sensation which may linger after treatment. Additional side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, or a darkened appearance around the area that was treated. The effects usually go away within a few days. That means you’ll have to plan your treatments to factor in possible downtime.

Though cryolipolysis is generally considered a low-risk procedure, one of the biggest dangers of cryolipolysis is uneven skin texture. Sometimes the dead fat cells clump in a certain area and the body is unable to process and rid itself of them, resulting in a bumpy area where the fat is collected.

Another potential negative side effect of fat freezing is an abnormal growth in fat cells. It’s not clear why some people’s bodies react this way to the procedure, however, the risk is small with less than 1% of clients reporting increased rather than decreased fat at the treated site.

Injection lipolysis

Injection lipolysis is a treatment where a chemical (deoxycholic acid) is injected into the treatment area to kill off fat cells. This treatment is mainly done on the area below the chin and is ideal for clients who want to smooth out areas of excess fat, however, it may not be as effective for clients with loose or saggy skin.

Local anesthesia is injected in the area before the chemical injections are made. Clients report discomfort afterward with bruising, swelling, and redness in the treated area.

Clients generally need at least two treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. One of the possible risks of this procedure is nerve injury.

Radiofrequency lipolysis

Radiofrequency body contouring uses thermal heat to shrink fat cells and stimulate the production of collagen, helping to reduce stubborn fat and tighten skin and can be used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and back. The ideal client is someone who is close to their ideal body weight and just wants to shed some stubborn fat.

Clients may feel a warm or tingling sensation in the area while its being treated and some redness can be expected afterward.

Most clients need four or more procedures in order to see results and the average circumference loss is 2 inches.

Laser lipolysis

Also known as lipo laser, laser lipolysis is a procedure that uses a laser to precisely target fat cells to melt them. The fat cells are then expelled through the body’s lymphatic system. The new Emerald laser uses the latest advanced technology so it’s completely noninvasive. Emerald lipo laser is the latest version of this treatment and it has a lot of benefits.

The areas that can be treated are the back, abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, ankles, and chin. The ideal client can have a BMI of up to 40, the only non-invasive procedure that’s effective for clients with higher BMI’s, so it truly is a treatment that offers fat loss for everyone.

Clients may feel a slight tingling during the procedure, otherwise, there is no discomfort.

There’s absolutely no downtime after the treatment, so after a quick 30-minute session, you can go back to work or go to an event without feeling or seeing any side effects.

Most clients need about six procedures spaced just a few days apart.

The average circumference loss is an impressive 6 inches.

Surgical vs nonsurgical fat reduction options

The surgical options fat reduction options are often used for clients with higher BMIs. However, the new Emerald lipo laser allows clients with higher BMI’s to enjoy non-invasive fat reduction without the risk of surgery.

There are many risks associated with surgery including having to undergo anesthesia and painful recovery that could take weeks as well as scarring where the incision was made. The cost of surgical procedures is also often much higher than noninvasive treatments.

When you can get effective results without having to undergo surgery, you can get the fat loss you desire and save money and spare yourself health risks and downtime.


There are many non-invasive fat loss options available, so we wanted to offer our clients a comparison to help them understand the pros and cons of each one.
