06 Apr Abdominal adiposity: how to intervene with effective nutrition and treatments.
Localized adiposity is an aesthetic and functional problem that affects a good portion of the population, men or women, regardless of their age.
Localized adiposity is influenced by a multiplicity of factors that concur with each other to give rise to the disorder. Localized fat varies according to sex, age and depends on various factors such as body fat percentage, genes, amount of physical activity practiced and sensitivity towards certain hormones.
Given that the best weapon against localized adiposity is prevention, given the seriousness of the problem, it is necessary to implement targeted and decisive solutions. In all cases, we always start from an analysis of the localized adiposity through the use of contact thermography, a special technology, based on the use of microencapsulated liquid crystal plates, which allows to identify the layers of subcutaneous fat by showing them through high-resolution color images: in this way it is possible to distinguish soft adiposity from hardened adiposity to set the most correct treatment.
Since this is a non-invasive examination and free of contraindications, it can be carried out several times over time to view all the progress of the treatment.
There are, then, a series of dietary rules that should always be taken into account in order to promote weight loss and to live better in full respect of your body. Remember, for example, to limit the consumption of sugary and carbonated drinks, alcohol, saturated fats and trans fatty acids (margarine, peanut butter).
Once this analysis is done and established the correct diet with the nutritionist, you can rely on your beautician or trusted doctor for treatments such as:
- cryolipolysis: available in both aesthetic and medical aesthetic versions, it is based on the principle of freezing,bringing the treated area to temperatures close to zero. In this way, a cellular apoptosis process is activated which leads to the death of fat cells which will then be expelled through the lymphatic system;
- laserlipolysis: a non-invasive liposuction based on the use of a high-frequency laser that selectively melts the fat cells through the heat given off by the laser. This treatment is also indicated for skin laxity;
- ultrasonic cavitation: the use of ultrasound makes the fat cells to implode, breaking down gradually and painlessly, and be expelled through the lymphatic system.
They are all effective and minimally invasive treatments that allow, right from the start, the return to normal everyday activities. For all three, proper hydration is highly recommended for the next period, in order to facilitate the disposal of all accumulated toxins.
