Two Cosmetic Treatments That Can Help You Target Stubborn Fat

Though it may be tempting to think that reaching your body goals is as simple as following a strict diet and exercise regimen, the truth is that everyone gains and retains weight differently due to varying hormone levels, genetics, or, for some, underlying health conditions. If clean eating and an active lifestyle haven’t generated the results you’re looking for, explore the following non-surgical procedures that may help you target those visible extra pounds.

Why Do Some People Experience Stubborn Fat?

Sleep, stress, workload, and many other factors can hinder your weight loss journey even if you feel that you’re well-disciplined in your weight loss efforts. Claims about guaranteed weight loss online tend to be misleading, as there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for targeting lingering fat cells. However, there are minimally invasive treatments available to help people discover alternative routes for body contouring, and getting started can be as easy as having a conversation with a board-certified dermatologist.


Little downtime and versatility are just two of the reasons many people rave about CoolSculpting. This non-surgical treatment “freezes” fat cells through a process known as cryolipolysis, which is both safe and effective. Although CoolSculpting can’t be used for preventing the growth of new fat cells, patients can target these difficult areas for fat removal, such as the chin, love handles, and inner thighs.

Vanquish Laser Treatment

Achieving a leaner figure can also be possible through Vanquish, another non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. This treatment works by heating tissue with radiofrequency energy to shrink or eliminate fat cells, and the device never even has to touch your skin! Some patients may notice results after a single session, but multiple treatments can be necessary for some to achieve their aesthetic goals.

If you’re new to learning about cosmetic procedures for targeting stubborn fat, reach out to the professionals at The Dermatology Clinic to find out more about your options for treatment. Schedule an appointment at either of our locations in Baton Rouge and Walker to learn if you’d be a good candidate for body contouring treatment.
