Body Contouring with Visceral Fat Reduction
Visceral fat, or the fat surrounding the organs in the abdominal cavity, is also known as “active fat” as it influences how certain hormones work in the body. Excessive visceral fat can have potentially harmful consequences, as increases stores of visceral fat predispose to increased health complications such as heart diseases and type 2 diabetes.
Ways to assess visceral fat
Other than going to your doctor, another simpler method you can do it at home is to measure the largest part around the waist and hip. Once you have measured both your waist and hip, divide the waist by the hip measurement. A healthy body should have less than 1.0 for men and 0.85 for women.
Another good indicator of high visceral fat is if you have a high BMI score and a disproportionately large waist. If you have both, chances are likely that you have a high level of visceral fat.
Introduction to Redustim
Redustim is a medical device targeted at patients with stubborn abdominal fat concerns. The biostimology technology utilizes a low frequency alternating bioenergetic magnetic field which stimulates imperceptible muscle contraction, which in turn induces energy consumption. This results in the breakdown of fat cells in both the visceral fat and subcutaneous fat layers, as well as enhanced lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and reduce water retention.
Furthermore, besides proven reduction in waist circumference and visceral body fat, Redustim treatments have been associated with improved metabolic liver parameters such as transaminases.
What is the treatment like?
This 45-minute treatment is completely painless with no downtime. It is prudent to avoid a heavy meal 1 to 2 hours before treatment. It is also important that one does not consume carbohydrates or sugary food 4 to 6 hours after the Redustim treatment as the targeted fat continues to be broken down.
A minimum of 12 treatment sessions is recommended, with a minimum of two to three 45-minute sessions per week, over four to six weeks.
Who is a suitable candidate?
This treatment is suitable for anyone who aims to get rid of excess abdominal fat to reduce associated health risks.
However, this treatment is not suitable for:
- Patients suffering from skin conditions or skin injuries (cuts and ecchymosis)
