Patients turn to Dermatologist in New Orleans to eliminate fat with Exilis

Fat is something that we are, more often than not, at battle with. For some, there’s too much of it on the arms and legs. Others can’t stand it on their stomachs, thighs, and sides.

Wherever it is, it tends to bother us. Sometimes, it’s easy to fight. Other times, it seems we constantly lose the battle. When it’s a no-win battle, patients find relief with a treatment called Exilis. This skin tightening treatment is offered by Dr. Mary Lupo at her practice, Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, serving New Orleans and surrounding areas. While it could take months to adapt to a new diet and exercise routine, patients who opt for this treatment see results quickly. Exilis uses radio frequency energy to melt fat cells and tighten tissues. Patients enjoy results including better skin texture and body contours in just 10 days. This treatment doesn’t require needles, injections, or anesthesia. This non-surgical procedure is a viable option when diets don’t work.

The irony is we need fat. This nutrient is critical to our body functioning. We need it to survive. It supplies us with energy and allows other nutrients in our body to perform. Although we may need it, we don’t always like where it congregates. It also comes with age. Why? Muscle mass diminishes. Estrogen levels also decrease, influencing its distribution in the body. Not only is it a concern for some when looking in the mirror, but it increases risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The risk for death increases for cardiovascular disease when the waistline is an unhealthy size.

So, how much is too much? Take a minute to measure your waist to find out. Just above your hipbone, wrap measuring tape around your bare stomach. Pull it until it fits snugly. Relax and exhale without pulling the tape too tightly. Don’t cheat, and suck in your stomach. For women, if your waist is 35 inches or more, it’s a concern. This increases your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Men should be worried if their waists measure 40+ inches.
