Weight management is a common issue across the globe, and obesity rates continue to rise. For example, 29.2% of Canadian adults were classed as obese in 2021 — a steady increase from 28.2% and 27.7% in 2020 and 2019, respectively.
While weight is a sensitive topic for many of us and not easy to discuss, it’s nevertheless an important aspect of your health. Being heavily overweight or obese can increase an individual’s risk of developing various conditions and diseases. According to the Government of Canada, these include:
Maintaining a healthy weight can help to reduce your risk of developing these problems, but let’s be honest — it’s not easy. Simply eating less and exercising more isn’t a practical solution for everyone, especially for people with mobility limitations or disabilities. However, while it may be difficult, achieving a stable weight for your height and build could help you stay healthier in the long run.
Unfortunately, stubborn pockets of fat may remain and refuse to vanish even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. That can be frustrating if you have made an effort to lose weight. But you can try various treatments to remove stubborn fat and cultivate a smoother, more defined shape.
In this post, we’ll cover three cutting-edge weight-loss methods that can support your weight loss program.
What are MIC Injections?
MIC injections are a simple, effective way to decrease fatty tissue and boost your metabolism. They’re composed of three lipotropic compounds that promote the release of fatty deposits in multiple areas of the body:
MIC infusion treatments are performed by licensed health care experts using the latest equipment.
What are the Benefits of MIC Injections?
MIC infusion can be a positive aid to regular exercise and a healthy diet. Clinical study shows that MIC infusion can lead to the following benefits:
The latter potential benefit means that MIC injections can be good for people affected by depression and related conditions. You may also benefit from it if you have liver or cholesterol issues.
The number of MIC infusions required to achieve and maintain results varies, but we may recommend weekly appointments. The immediacy of results, and their duration, can differ from case to case. However, we’ll be able to provide you with a clearer idea during your pre-treatment consultation.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an innovative cryolipolysis treatment designed to freeze and remove stubborn fat that simply will not disappear even with a good diet and an active lifestyle. This is the only non-surgical treatment to use controlled cooling for fat reduction, and it can lead to lasting, visible results.
The CoolSculpting technology administers precisely controlled cooling to target specific areas of the body. It focuses on the fat cells beneath the skin but has no effect on the skin itself.
CoolSculpting can be used on the following areas:
After treatment, the dead fat cells that have been frozen will be naturally eliminated by the body. This can decrease stubborn fat in target areas by up to 25%.
What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting offers the following benefits:
On average, CoolSculpting treatments take between one and three hours, though your session may be shorter depending on which area(s) you want to treat. You should need at least two treatments to achieve your goal.
