Don’t just lose weight! Reshape with body contouring after weight loss in the Newport Beach area

Most of us think that losing weight is the ultimate goal when we want to feel better about the way we look. What many of us find, however, is that weight loss is only a part of what we really want. When we think of losing weight, what we really envision are great contours, curves in all the right places. It may seem as though reshaping is impossible without cosmetic surgery, but body contouring after weight loss does not have to be that involved. Newport Beach dermatologist Dr. Arta Farshidi has seen many of her Exilis patients achieve their ultimate goal in body contouring with just a few non-invasive treatments.

Arta Dermatology offers Orange County residents the opportunity to re-shape problem areas quickly and without the standard points of surgery, such as incisions and recovery time. Through Exilis radiofrequency treatments, the skin naturally tightens and fat cells leave the body.

Exilis treatments are very simple and comfortable. During treatment, Dr. Farshidi gradually moves the hand held device over the treatment area, delivering powerful thermal energy to targeted cells beneath the skin. Throughout treatment, the temperature of the Exilis device can be adjusted for comfort and efficacy. Because thermal energy can get quite warm, the Exilix hand piece also features monitoring and a cooling system that protects surface skin from discomfort. Beneath the skin, radiofrequency energy stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers, which are a vital part of the skin’s supportive network. Many people notice a visible change in the tightness of their skin after just one treatment. However, because the production of collagen takes place over time, results progressively improve.

Radiofrequency is not only effective at improving the appearance of skin through collagen stimulation, but is also a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical body contouring with liposuction. Dermatological treatment of unwanted fat cells and sagging skin requires no anesthesia, and no downtime for healing. After your visit with Dr. Farshidi, you can return to your normal daily activities.

The side effects of Exilis treatment include temporary redness or swelling in the treatment area, which should disappear within a short time. Dr. Farshidi recommends that her patients drink plenty of water and perform light exercise as a way to maximize the potential of Exilis treatments and minimize side effects.
