BODY FAT, WEIGHT GAIN

Excess body fat is an abnormal or aggressive accumulation of fat tissue in specific areas of the body. This fat can store near the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, and feet, sometimes disproportionately. Excess body fat may alter one’s appearance by looking unbalanced. Where fat tends to store is typically genetic, so it can be difficult to achieve the sculpting you desire even with rigorous diet and exercise.

Causes of Weight Gain

Weight gain has several causes and not all are associated with dietary changes. A significant portion of weight gain or excess body fat cases are triggered by uncontrollable variables. These causes influence a client’s appearance, self-esteem, and quality of life.

Causes include:
– Natural Weight Gain
– Medications
– Genetic Predisposition
– Aging
– Pregnancy
– Activity Level

Patients with noticeable weight gain may find it problematic to eliminate excess body fat. Dermis Advanced Skin Care offers a variety of treatments designed to help with fat reduction and stubborn areas. Treatments include radiofrequency skin tightening, which heats the fat cells in the subcutaneous layer of the skin, permanently destroying them. Our treatments also tighten the skin, improving the skin’s overall texture and appearance. Depending on the desired result, multiple treatments are often recommended for optimal results.
