If you’ve been trying hard to lose that ‘belly pooch’ or pudgy ‘love handles’ but nothing seems to work, it may be time to blast that fat away. Fat blasting is a great way to shed those stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. But what is fat blasting, and how does it work?

What is fat blasting?

If you’ve ever seen those TV ads featuring FDA-approved technologies that claim to reduce fat on the body without surgery or downtime, you already have some idea of what fat blasting is all about.

Fat blasting involves the use of energy-based devices to effortlessly melt away unwanted fat. There are a wide range of modalities available that generally use ultrasound, radiofrequency (RF), or laser energy to reduce fat.  These minimally invasive procedures are not intended for weight loss but are designed to get rid of those unwelcome fat bulges that make you feel insecure about your body.

Treatment time with these procedures is relatively short, ranging from 30-60 minutes, but several sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results.

Candidates for fat blasting procedures should already be at their ideal weight but have a few problem areas that no amount of exercise has been able to shrink. Patients can expect about a 1-2 inch reduction in the circumference of the treated area.
