Body Contouring Q & A

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is not weight loss. It refers to any treatment or procedure that targets and reduces stubborn fat in a specific area, resulting in a slimmer appearance in that area. Many different body contouring treatments are available on the market, but Karla Jarvis provides only the safest, most effective options.

What is Kyrolipo by Karla?

Karla Jarvis offers cryolipolysis (renamed “Kyrolipo by Karla”), a non-invasive body contouring treatment that reduces fat cells in a targeted area by freezing and destroying the fat cells. It is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, without complications, incisions, or recovery time.

The procedure involves placing a machine on the target area which cools the fat cells below the skin’s surface to the point that it causes cell death. There is no damage to the skin during the procedure. The dead cells leave the body through the natural lymph drainage system over time. Since the total number of fat cells in the body is fixed (you can’t grow new fat cells), those fat cells are permanently eliminated.

It can take several weeks to see the results of cryolipolysis as the fat cells leave the body. However, over time, patients can see a nearly 20% reduction of fat at the site of the treatment. Kyrolipo by Karla treatments take about 45 minutes, after which patients can return to work or their daily routine. The treatment works best on targeted fat on the belly, flanks, thighs, back of the bra, arms, the male chest, and under the chin.

What other body contouring options are available?

Another non-surgical treatment for targeted weight loss is mesotherapy. This treatment uses a series of injections filled with a mixture of vitamins, hormones, enzymes, and plant extracts that target the adipose fat cells under the surface of the skin. The combination of all-natural chemicals stimulates a process called lipolysis, or cell death. Once the cells have died and are naturally flushed out of the body, they are permanently gone and can’t grow back. This procedure removes targeted fat in the stomach, hips, legs, arms, face, thighs, and buttocks, and also reduces cellulite. It also tightens and rejuvenates the skin.

Other options available at Jarvis Family Medical Services that can contribute to weight loss include aromatherapy. Aromatherapy oils help promote a general feeling of well being, while others are energizing and improve the spirit. These oils can help patients maintain their mood and drive to maintain their weight loss program.
