New York specialist in laser therapies, liposuction offers range of minimally-invasive treatments for fat, cellulite removal
Dr. Ron Shelton has written a book on liposuction. He offers tumescent liposuction, an approach to fat reduction that minimizes blood loss and anesthesia-oriented risks. In addition to liposuction, Dr. Shelton’s patients in Midtown Manhattan can benefit from a number of other techniques to achieve firm and cellulite-free skin and a more lean and sculpted physique.
There have never been more options to safely and effectively reduce stubborn pockets of fat. These minimally-invasive options have evolved from the notion that fat cells respond differently than other cells to variances in temperature and other stimuli.
ThermiTight™ uses Radiofrequency energy to shrink trouble areas on the face and body, including the jawline, above the eyes, back, upper arms, abdomen, and knees.
Heat is precisely and safely applied to target areas in the form of RF energy. This technique both destroys fat cells and targets underlying collagen to tighten the skin, which is of particular benefit to patients whose trouble areas may be more fleshy than fatty (such as the arms).
UltraShape® uses ultrasound or sound waves to destroy stubborn fat cells. When this energy is delivered by Dr. Shelton, the rapidly-changing waves place pressure on the cells. These cells eventually rupture. Surrounding tissues, blood vessels and nerves remain untouched. The procedure is generally painless.
UltraShape® may be used on the abdominal region. You can see results in as little as 2 weeks.
CoolSculpting® uses “cryolipolysis,” the scientific way of saying that controlled cool temperatures are applied to the abdomen, sides, thighs, back, and other stubborn pockets to freeze fat cells. Eventually these cells die and are eliminated naturally and harmlessly from the body.
Due to ThermiTight’s unique capabilities of both eliminating fat and tightening skin, this treatment may be an option to improve the appearance of cellulite.
In addition to ThermiTight, Dr. Shelton can also use Cellfina™, which is FDA-cleared for the treatment of cellulite on the buttocks and posterior thighs.
The Cellfina System™ works by targeting the fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the muscle. As these cords pull down and fat cells pull up against the skin, this creates the tension responsible for the uneven surface that is cellulite.
By releasing this tension, the cords are able to bounce back and those lumps, bumps, peaks, and valleys are smoothed out.
