How you can trim excess fat in time for summer
As winter continues, now is the perfect time to hit the gym and switch to a more balanced diet so that we can reveal a slimmer, more toned physique when the weather warms. After all, we all know that summer bodies are made in winter. Of course, this can be a challenge, as many of us struggle with excess pockets of fat that just don’t seem to budge, no matter how much we diet and exercise. If this sounds familiar, keep reading to learn how you can trim that unwanted excess fat in time for summer.
What is stubborn fat?
Stubborn fat is the subcutaneous fat that lies just beneath the skin (the fat that you usually pinch at and frown). Such fat can be extremely frustrating, especially when you live a healthy lifestyle, and it still doesn’t shift. However, there is a reason why that last bit of fat doesn’t budge, and it has nothing to do with diet and exercise.
The number of fat cells and where they are distributed in the body are determined by numerous factors, including gender, genetics, and hormones. While exercise and diet efforts can affect how much fat is stored in our fat cells, it will not change where the body stores those fat cells or how many fat cells the body has.
For example, the male body usually distributes more fat cells in the upper body. In women, on the other hand, the body usually stores more fat cells in the hips, buttocks, and thighs in order to prepare the body for pregnancy. The fat cells in these areas are actually predisposed to resist diet and exercise, as they have more receptors that hinder fat burning.
Why you can’t spot reduce fat
Despite common misconceptions, you cannot spot reduce fat. Abdominal exercises will not give you a flat stomach, while leg lifts won’t do anything to shift stubborn thigh fat. This is because, during exercise, the body doesn’t just draw energy from the cells in the area you’re working, but from the body as a whole. So, while push-ups may help strengthen the abdominal muscles, they may not necessarily do anything about the fat in the region.
In fact, the areas where a person will lose fat is dependent purely on genetics. Some may lose fat from their face first, while others may find that stomach fat is the first to go. Usually, the first place you gain weight will be the last place you lose it. Unfortunately, there is not much to be done about this. The only way that you can reduce fat from specific areas of the body is through cosmetic intervention.
Trim stubborn fat at Skin Confidence
CLATUU Alpha is the latest advancement in fat freezing technology. This innovative treatment uses cryolipolysis to target stubborn fat deposits so that you can enjoy a permanently slimmer figure. Special CLATUU Alpha applicators are suctioned to the skin, through which powerful cooling energy is delivered into the subcutaneous layer of fat to induce apoptosis (cell death). Once the fat cells are frozen to the point that they crystallise and die, they will be gradually eliminated via the body’s natural metabolic processes. With CLATUU Alpha, you can expect a 30% reduction of fat in the treated area.
While numerous fat freezing devices are available on the market, CLATUU Alpha is the preferred choice at Skin Confidence. Unlike other devices, CLATUU Alpha has an applicator specifically designed for the thigh, which is a common area of concern for many patients.
To optimise results, we often combine CLATUU Alpha fat freezing with Venus Legacy body contouring treatments. Venus Legacy combines Multi-Polar Radiofrequency and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields to gently heat beneath the skin’s surface. Not only does this process stimulate the production of collagen and elastin for tighter, smoother skin, but it also shrinks the volume of fat cells. The result? A tighter, slimmer, cellulite-free physique.
