Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat

Fat that refuses to go away, regardless of your dedication to a healthy diet and exercise plan, is just stubborn. Stubborn fat is the most frustrating type of fat that exists. This fat settles into your hips, thighs, chin, arms, and abdomen. 

Fortunately, at Los Gatos Dermatology, we offer two advanced nonsurgical techniques to help you say goodbye to stubborn fat pockets and rolls forever. 

Our skin care experts, under the direction of dermatologist Bruce Saal, MD, provide two safe and noninvasive solutions to help you eliminate unwanted fat and achieve a better figure. Both Exilis® and WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure® can help contour your body and boost your confidence. 

What is Exilis?

Exilis Ultra™ is a device that uses radiofrequency energy to target unwanted fat cells anywhere on your body. Not only does Exilis reduce body fat, but it also tightens loose skin. Many people find that after they lose fat, their skin is loose and saggy.

The RF energy heats up the fat cells and also stimulates collagen at the same time, causing the fat cells to shrink and skin laxity to tighten. We can use Exilis on problem areas on your face and body.

What is WarmSculpting with SculpSure?

At Los Gatos Dermatology, we offer WarmSculpting with SculpSure, an advanced innovative body-contouring system that eliminates up to 24% of fat cells in the treated area after just one treatment. 

WarmSculpting with SculpSure uses advanced laser light to target fat cells, destroying them permanently. Over the next several weeks, these cells die and are naturally flushed from your body. The WarmSculpting treatment can help shrink the size of your abdomen, hips, thighs, and back. 

Which treatment is right for me?

With both services, multiple treatments provide the best outcome. There is no downtime for either procedure, meaning you can resume normal activities immediately after your appointment. Side effects are minimal, and results get better over time. 

Dr. Saal and our staff can help you determine the best body contouring option based on your aesthetic goals and body type. Neither treatment is a substitute for healthy eating and exercise.

While both treatments permanently eliminate targeted fat pockets, you can gain weight and develop new fat pockets if you fail to maintain a healthy diet and exercise program. Both SculpSure and Exilis are used for body contouring, not weight loss. 

If you’d like to look better in your clothes and feel more confident without them, call us at Los Gatos Dermatology in Los Gatos, California, to find out more about our advanced body contouring options.
