Fat accumulation

Nowadays, a large number of different ways to eliminate excessive fat accumulation without undergoing surgery are available. At the Derma-Act clinics, we achieve it using modern non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures which are completely safe and lead to a guaranteed lasting result.

What is fat accumulation?

Fat accumulation consists of body fats that cannot be "subdued" even by the strictest diets and exercises. Even after losing weight, they remain visible, disturbing the natural harmony of the body. Fat accumulation affects your self-confidence and generally does not allow you to achieve your top shape.

Methods of removal

Up until a few years ago, the only way to permanently remove fat accumulation was liposuction. It is a method accompanied not only with hospitalisation and general anaesthesia, but also a long recovery period and – in many cases – loosening of skin due to the sudden suction of a large amount of fats.

At the Derma-Act clinics, we offer all the modern methods of elimination of local fat accumulation using a non-invasive or minimally invasive way. The first step to your new appearance is scheduling a consultation in which our experienced team examines the problem area and selects an appropriate therapy based on your individual needs. Using innovative procedures, you can recover the harmony in your body and achieve the coveted perfect proportions.

Non-invasive treatments

Cryolipolysis with ECOCRYO

Cryolipolysis is an innovative non-invasive procedure for reduction of fats in specific body regions through freezing and subsequent destruction of the fat cells. There is no need for administration of general or local anaesthesia since the procedure is completely painless. As a result of it, fat cells are decomposed for a period of several months in a natural manner and a gradual reduction of the thickness of the fat layer can be seen.

The ECOCRYO device has a number of advantages not only dure to providing a non-invasive and painless intervention for the patient but also because it leads to lasting results, i.e., the destroyed fat cells will never recover at a given site. Once destroyed, they cannot be restored. ECOCRYO is one of the most state-of-the-art non-invasive equipment for cryolipodialysis. Special applicators freeze (crystallize) fatty tissue. Freezing leads to cell death of subcutaneous fat without causing problems on the epidermis. A light suction and cooling can be felt in the treated spot.

Benefits of cryolipolysis:

Non-invasive treatment

Completely safe

No recovery period

Lastingly eliminates local fats on the body

Applicable for the treatment of belly, waist, thighs, buttocks, hips, knees, arms, back

Corrects the skin quickly without enabling its loosening

Thermolipolysis with SculpSure®

SculpSure® is an extremely smart technology for non-surgical sculpting of the perfect body contours. This innovative laser technology is designed to remove unwanted fat cells safely and effectively.

SculpSure® increases the temperature of fat cells, thus destroying their structure. The device works safely and controllably only on the areas with excessive fatty tissue warranting its minimal absorption in the dermis and leaving the skin surface intact. During the device operation, Contact Cooling™ is used to reach an ideal depth of fatty tissue and cool the skin surface for the patient's additional safety and comfort.

Benefits of thermolipolysis:

Ultimate elimination of fat accumulation

Completely safe

No recovery period

Results that look natural

Applicable for the treatment of belly, hip, back, love handles, buttocks, thighs, arms and double chin

Contouring with Maximus

The Pollogen Maximus system is an innovation that allows aesthetic specialists to treat all four skin layers and manage different skin conditions. Among them are the following: Local reduction of fats and circumference, treatment of cellulite, visible reduction of stretch marks and scars.

The following two innovative technologies are behind the Maximus procedure: TriPollar® RF and DMA.

TriPollar® RF offers warmth to both the superficial and the deeper skin layers. It uses low energy, thus providing immediate and long-term results. Deep warming stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which leads to a more tightened and smooth skin. Heating fat cells accelerates the metabolism and causes their contraction, which leads to formation and contouring of the body.

DMA is one of the first technologies improving muscles and muscle tone. It extends to different muscle layers through a directly applied current which creates intervals of stimulation and relaxation, producing an effective increase of muscle tension. The intensity, duration and number of contractions are adjusted according to the aim of procedure, and the result is a safe and effective increase of muscular density and volume. DMA is most effective when used in combination with the innovative TriPollar® RF technology, as in this way the two operate simultaneously on the skin, fats and muscles.

Benefits of Contouring with Maximus:

The procedure is painless

Effective for skin tightening, contouring, reduction of cellulite and stretch marks

No recovery period

Completely safe

Non-surgical liposuction with Aqualyx

Aqualyx is an injectable treatment for non-surgical removal of local fat accumulation. The treatment is based on local injections with a biocompatible substance (deoxycholic acid) with the aim to burn excessive body fats completely safely and painlessly. The substance targets problematic areas and eliminates fat cells in a natural manner. Injections are applied using an updated mesotherapeutic technique, so that local fats are treated simultaneously along their entire surfaces and in depth to achieve a completely even final result.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Liposuction:

Ultimate removal of fat accumulation in the body and face (double chin)

A permanent and even result

Natural elimination of fat cells

Clinically proven efficacy

The treatment is applicable for arms, belly, back, love handles, buttocks, thighs, knees, neck and double chin

Muscle stimulation with truSculpt®flex

What is it?

truSculpt®flex is a muscle non-invasive sculpting device that provides personalized procedures adjusted to the physical fitness, shape and goals of each individual patient. Multi-directional stimulation (MDS) by truSculpt®flex enables a simultaneous treatment of 3 areas and up to 8 areas in separate sessions, thus presenting the largest range of areas among all the commercially available devices. Muscle stimulation can be directed to specific muscular groups such as belly, thighs, arms, and fat deposits in upper thighs using three options of treatment mode:

  • Prep mode (preparation) – a mode generating twisting motions with warming and stretching of muscles, as well as a slow building of tolerability to muscle constructions;
  • Tone mode (toning) – a mode in which muscles are contracted and relaxed with the aim to enhance strength and improve their endurance;
  • Sculpt mode (sculpting) – a mode in which fast and deep contractions are emitted by which muscle fibres are stimulated and muscle mass is built.

What does the procedure entail?

During a procedure, 8-16 truSculpt®flex applicators emitting low-level electricity to stimulate muscle contractions and build muscle tone will be set on the areas appropriate to you. At the beginning of a procedure, the patient can feel a mild contraction, numbness, warming and a gradual increase of the intensity of muscle contractions, but with no discomfort.

Noticeable results can be achieved with at least 4 procedures. Additional treatment may be required for the achievement of personalized results. The recommended number of procedures is 2 per week with an interval of 2 to 5 days between them.

After a procedure, you may observe numbness in the treated areas for a period of several hours and/or a mild muscle soreness for 24-72 hours. After a procedure, drinking a sufficient amount of water and following an optimal dietary regimen is recommended.

Benefits of Muscle Stimulation:

A non-invasive procedure; it does not require a recovery period

It strengthens muscles without physical exercise

Visible results after the first session

Treatment protocol in accordance with the individual needs of each patient

An appropriate therapy for the men and women wishing to build their bodies quickly and easily

Minimally invasive treatments – Ultrasound liposuction VASER® Lipo

What is it?

VASER® Lipo is a modern liposuction procedure in which an ultrasound technology is used to decompose fat cells in the body while maximally sparing the surrounding cells and tissues. As a result, a precise removal of excessive fat can be achieved giving a possibility for better body sculpting.

A procedure using VASER® Lipo is minimally invasive, extremely efficacious, and has a minimal recovery period. Ultrasound energy destroys fat cells without affecting surrounding tissues, after which they turn to fluids and are naturally removed from the body. Therapy with VASER® Lipo is also applicable in cases where a significant amount of local fat is present. In addition, it can also be used for the formation of the muscles of belly, arms and legs (VASER® 4D High Definition).

What does the procedure entail?

The procedure itself is performed in an operating room by a trained team of specialists. General anaesthesia is administered. At the beginning of the procedure, a thin probe is introduced into the fatty tissue with the aim of injecting a specifically prepared solution. One the one hand, the solution “dissolves” fatty tissue, while, on the other hand, acting as an environment in which ultrasound is targeted only at fat cells.

After injecting the solution, the ultrasound probe is inserted in the desired area, deep into the fatty tissue. It advances through the tissue soaked with the solution as the plastic surgeon guides its movements and depth. This leads to the liquefying of fat cells.
Then a surgeon gently “suctions” (aspirates) them using a small tube (cannula) and a vacuum pump.
