3 Characteristics Of Ideal Laser Fat Burning Treatment Candidates

Non-surgical fat reduction technology is a fairly recent branch of cosmetic surgery that can provide benefits for people whose bodies don't respond to traditional methods of weight loss. There are several reasons why certain areas of the body may not respond to dieting and exercise but the most common are age, stress, depression, and hormonal changes in the body. It can be incredibly frustrating to feel like you're doing everything right to achieve weight loss, even methods that have worked for you in the past, but to experience no changes. If this sounds all too familiar, non-surgical fat reduction technology such as laser fat burning might be an option for you. Laser fat burning utilizes non-invasive fiber optic lasers to isolate and remove troublesome fat pockets in the body without the side effects of invasive surgery. The same process also encourages collagen production, helping tighten the skin. But it's not a solution for everyone. The ideal candidate for laser fat burning services should have the following characteristics.

Already Committed to a Healthy Lifestyle

The ideal candidate for laser fat burning is already committed to a lifestyle of healthy habits. That doesn't mean you have to be someone that never eats more calories than your recommended daily calorie intake, or a that you're a powerhouse that runs marathons every month. What it does mean is that you're someone who is committed to maintaining good eating habits and regular exercise, even if you slip up once in a while. Having healthy habits just means that you try to live a healthy lifestyle more often than not. For the average adult between the ages of 18 and 64, the World Health Organization recommends 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic exercise per week or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity per week with at least 10 minutes in duration. 

Not Obese

Another characteristic of an ideal candidate is someone who is not obese. Because laser fat burning is best utilized as a solution to troublesome and stubborn fatty areas that don't respond to traditional weight loss methods, it's not an ideal solution for people trying to lose significant amounts of weight. One method for determining obesity is calculating your BMI or Body Mass Index by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in meters and comparing that number to a BMI chart. Although not a foolproof or definitive number, it is helpful in determining generally if you are at a healthy weight level.

Concerned With Specific Problem Areas

As mentioned, laser fat burning is best used to address troublesome fatty areas, not the body as a whole. The most common areas where candidates are looking for solutions are the areas around the thighs, hips, and waist. These are areas that are often slow to respond to traditional weight loss methods.
