What is body contouring?
Body contouring refers to treatments that reduce fat without cutting into the skin. They are an alternative to liposuction for patients who are unwilling or unable to undergo a surgical procedure.
While the results of body contouring treatments are less dramatic than the results of liposuction, body contouring treatments are a good fit for people who are close to their ideal weight but have those stubborn trouble spots that won’t go away despite a good diet and exercise.
How does tattoo removal work?
Most tattoo removal procedures involve lasers that remove the tattoo by breaking up the pigments with a high-intensity light beam. Dr. Anya uses the PicoSure® laser, which is a new type of laser approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2012.
PicoSure, an aesthetic laser, doesn’t only rely on heat to melt away the pigments. Instead, it delivers energy in pulses so rapid that the pigments’ tiny particles vibrate and then shatter. This way, there’s no burning of the surrounding area. That means less tissue damage and discomfort.
