Weight LossNow that 2014 is well underway, have you made strides toward meeting your weight loss goals? Marin County residents have a wealth of options available to them for achieving a weight loss resolution, from personal trainers to meal planning. Creating a lifestyle change isn’t easy, but for many, it’s definitely worth it in the long run for their health and appearance.

Weight loss comes with its own set of hurdles. In addition to the actual act of losing weight, lots of people often deal with a few troublesome areas that won’t disappear no matter what they do. Thankfully, there are options in Marin to help with that.

Body contouring using technology is a low-impact option that can help shape your body after weight loss. One option is called Liposonix and works by utilizing focused ultrasound technology to target and eliminate fatty tissue in the abdomen and waist area. Unlike liposuction, Liposonix is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure. A typical treatment involves a single one-hour session, with results showing at about 8-12 weeks after the procedure. Since there’s no surgery involved, there’s very little downtime as the body heals and eliminates the destroyed fat cells naturally. Liposonix is best for people who are close to their ideal weight and only have an extra inch or so to lose.

Another option also available at the Laser Center of Marin is the Zerona body slimming laser treatment. This is another non-surgical procedure intended to help you reduce any stubborn fat or cellulite from your belly, thighs, arms, or other problem areas. By utilizing special lasers, Zerona treatments allow you to continue with your daily activities without worrying about surgery or healing from incisions. After working hard to trim down for the new year, this is a perfect option to get that last bit of sculpting and toning for your body.

Of course, maintaining your results after your treatment requires a healthy lifestyle with dedication to both exercise and a good diet. Once you’re on your way to meeting or have met the majority of your weight loss goals, you may want to consider other skin treatments at the Laser Center of Marin to help you look your absolute best. You owe it to yourself after all that hard work!
