Dr. Ngo focuses on body contouring treatments to help his patients achieve the smooth and slender figures they’ve always wanted.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a minimally invasive treatment that helps to get rid of unwanted and stubborn pockets of fat. Often, even after dieting and exercising regularly, you still may have problem areas on your body that just aren’t as smooth and toned as you’d like them to be. Body contouring uses laser energy to break down your fat cells which are then removed from your body through normal bodily functions. In some cases, body contouring is combined with a minimally invasive liposuction procedure to remove the fatty tissue.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a specific form of laser-powered body contouring treatment, designed and manufactured by Cynosure®. This innovative treatment is FDA-approved as a non-invasive lipolysis targeting the stomach, flanks, thighs, and back. SculpSure treatment can be applied to many areas simultaneously and is proven to be effective on many body shapes, sizes, and skin types.
During treatment, the lasers are directed at your trouble spots, and you experience a warming sensation as the lasers reach the fatty tissue under your skin. At this point,the laser heat is breaking down and destroying your fat cells. Treatment usually takes 20 minutes, maybe a little longer if you are having a larger area treated.
While most patients notice an improvement after just one treatment, for the best results it is recommended to have a series of treatments, with six weeks in between.
Aesthetic medicine helps many patients to look as good as they feel on the inside. Dr. Ngo is focused on your whole health and well-being including helping you to look your best.
