CURRENT OPTIONS IN NON-INVASIVE BODY CONTOURING FOR FAT REDUCTION
In recent years, increasing attention has been paid to non-invasive body contouring procedures, which have many advantages over classical surgical procedures in terms of lower risks, costs and recovery time. The aim of this paper is to identify current applicable options in non-invasive body contouring. Body contouring procedures targeting subcutaneous tissue and dermis tissues are: cryolipolysis of smallmedium areas, monopolar radiofrequency for deep penetration, multipolar or bipolar radiofrequency for superficial penetration, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), laser-assisted body contouring, endermology, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), lipolytic mesotherapy suitable for small areas. Understanding aesthetic parameters allows dermatologists to be creative in combining available body conturing procedures so they can provide exceptional results with minimal effort from patients.
