Combining HIFU Body Sculpting With Exercise & Healthy Eating For Best Results
Are you looking for a safe, effective alternative for weight loss that doesn’t require going under the knife? HIFU body sculpting is ideal for treating stubborn areas of the body that won’t budge. This blog will discuss how HIFU body sculpting works for weight loss and how you can maximise your long-term results by pairing HIFU body sculpting with healthy eating and exercise.
What is HIFU body sculpting?
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) body sculpting is a revolutionary, non-invasive technique that targets stubborn fat deposits in your body while simultaneously tightening your skin. At Elite Body Contouring, the HIFU Focus Dual® penetrates into the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and delivers focused ultrasound energy deep into the tissue layers of your skin, stimulating collagen production and causing fat cells to break down.
The benefits of HIFU body sculpting
When researching non-surgical weight loss treatments, it’s easy to fall down an endless rabbit hole of options and get confused as to which treatment is well-suited for your needs. During your free consultation at Elite Body Contouring, one of our experienced clinicians will take the time to listen to your goals and provide you with the treatment that ticks all your boxes. In the meantime, allow us to inform you of the benefits that make HIFU body sculpting a popular choice among our customers:
- Customisable treatment plan
At Elite Body Contouring, our Focus Dual® (TGA Certified, ARTG No. 371470) is fully customisable to your needs. We use different cartridge depths to treat varying body areas, from the upper or lower stomach to the inner and outer thighs, arms, male chest and more.
- Non-surgical solution
Since HIFU body sculpting is a non-surgical alternative, it’s a great non-invasive treatment to consider post-pregnancy or to use in conjunction with workouts to help treat those stubborn body areas.
- Suitable for all ages
The great thing about HIFU body sculpting is that it works well for young and mature skin that has lost elasticity over the years.
- No downtime
Surgical treatments come with post-treatment timelines you have to abide by — that includes a timeframe wherein you have to wait until you can participate in exercise again. On the other hand, HIFU body sculpting is a simple walk-in, walk-out procedure that only takes 30 to 60 minutes of your time. You can even pop in on your lunch break — it’s as easy as that.
- Firming and tightening effect
While some of our clients will notice a firming and tightening effect right after treatment, the full extent of your results will gradually develop over 12 weeks as your body produces new collagen and elastin.
- Permanent fat reduction
- Measurable results
At Elite Body Contouring, we track and measure our client results using body composition scans with the InBody 770. With your consent, we’ll take before and after images and detailed treatment notes to ensure you’re on the right track to achieve your goals.
How to incorporate exercise to enhance your HIFU results
In today’s day and age, it’s easy to feel exhausted often. Between keeping up with your work schedule and other life commitments, whether it’s studying, kids, meal prepping or even just maintaining a home, making time for exercise can be tough. Not everyone has the time to maintain the active lifestyle they would like or hit the gym as often as they would like.
Since our HIFU treatments require no downtime, you can incorporate some exercise into your routine, a healthy diet and self-care to enhance your results. You can:
- Stimulate fat burning with cardiovascular workouts
Participating in cardiovascular exercises like running, swimming or cycling will elevate your heart rate, accelerate calorie consumption and promote your body’s natural fat-burning mechanisms to amplify the results of your HIFU body sculpting treatment.
- Build lean muscle mass with strength training
Incorporate strength training to your workout routine to help shape and tone your body post-HIFU. Resistance exercises like weight-lifting will help build lean muscle mass to tone up your body and elevate your metabolism to help aid in weight management.
No matter your exercise choice, ensure you make time for self-care. That means adequate rest and recovery post-workouts and time for mindful practices like meditation, yoga or breathing exercises to support your overall health and well-being.
Fuel your success with healthy eating
While making time to work out is instrumental to your health and wellness, a workout routine needs to be supported by a well-balanced diet to maximise your results:
- Eat a nutritionally balanced diet
Eating nutrient-dense foods like lean proteins, wholegrains, fruits and vegetables will provide you with the necessary building blocks for tissue repair. Protein will provide your body with the support needed post-workout and a well-balanced diet overall will help you restore the energy you need daily.
- Stay hydrated to keep your body in peak condition
Your body needs to stay hydrated with the proper daily water intake, averaging at about 2.7 litres for women and 3.7 litres for men. This amount can vary based on various factors, like your diet, how active you are or whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Your general practitioner can advise you further based on your needs.
