It’s not uncommon to have stubborn fat around your midsection, thighs or on your arms that you just won’t go away. Perhaps you’ve tried spending more time doing cardio at the gym, eating fewer carbs, eating more vegetables, or lifting more weights with no new results. Fortunately, there’s a much easier way to get rid of it than punishing yourself at the gym and in the kitchen. At Atlas Bodyworks, we offer body shaping services that have shown to be safe and effective at eliminating stubborn fat cells and tightening up your skin and body. If you’re unfamiliar with how body shaping techniques work, read our guide below for more information.
Eliminate fat cells
Before we get too far into the techniques used with our body shaping services, let’s first talk about why it works. When you lose weight by burning fat, the fat cells in your body are essentially deflated and the fatty acid fluid within them is drained. The cells themselves stay where they are but are empty. The cells can once again fill with fatty acids later as you gain weight, which is why it’s so easy to gain the weight back after you’ve lost it.
Body shaping is an effective method of trimming fat because it eliminates fat cells. Our techniques are all designed to encourage your body to completely eliminate the fat cells so you feel leaner and it’s more difficult for your body to gain weight again in the future.
Collagen is the fiber that makes your skin snap back in place and prevents it from sagging. However, after you lose a significant amount of weight, your skin can feel loose and weak.
Encouraging the production of collagen will give your skin back its tight, smooth feel that it once had.
Now, let’s explore some of the methods that we use at Atlas Bodyworks to help shape your body.
The most effective method of our body shaping services is the Venus Legacy. This technique uses heat in the form of multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields to destroy fat cells and promote collagen production. Results are best after about 8 to 10 sessions for the body or 6 to 8 for the face. Even if you’re not looking for fat reduction, this treatment is excellent for those looking to tighten their skin.
M’lis body wrap
A M’lis wrap is a full-body wrap that’s meant to improve circulation in the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Both have been shown to provide tremendous cleansing effects that lead to healthy weight loss. A healthy circulatory system is not only essential to an overall healthy body, but the transport of oxygen to tissues is a key part of healthy weight loss. This encourages your muscles to make more energy and improves your metabolism. As for your lymphatic system, you’ll notice that you generally feel better and your body is more efficient at removing toxins. This helps to eliminate the fat that you’ve burned during exercise.
