Are fat thighs and cellulites holding you back from wearing shorts, skirts and swimwear? For some people, diet, losing weight through exercise are not enough. The good news? You can slim down your thighs, minimize your cellulites, and get great-looking and toned legs with a combination of diet, exercise and non-invasive fat reduction technologies.

Non-invasive Fat Removal Treatment for Thighs

CoolSculpting

Thighs are a challenge to tone because the fat in them don’t easily respond to diet and exercise, like the fat around your midsection (visceral and subcutaneous). You can be a marathoner and train hard every day and yet still have cellulite and inner thigh fat hanging on stubbornly. So if lunges and sugar-free diet can’t banish jiggly thighs, what can?

Fat is responsive to cold temperatures. That’s the medical principle that CoolSculpting is based on. It’s an FDA-approved non-surgical fat reduction treatment that destroys stubborn fat cells using controlled cooling, with the targeted fat cells eliminated by the body using natural pathways so there is no downtime required after each treatment. As a non-invasive, fat freeze procedure, CoolSculpting has been approved for use on thighs, abdomen, ‘love handles’ and even double chins, areas that cannot be spot-reduced by diet and exercise alone.

CoolSculpting has recently been approved to treat ‘banana rolls,’ those folds of fat under the buttocks that couldn’t be banished by any other means before. And if you are thinking of swimwear, you can have even CoolSculpting applied on back fat and ‘bra bulge.’

Body Contouring Without Exercise?

A similar fat reduction technology but one that uses radiofrequency technology to generate heat and internal muscle contraction is TriLipo. The RF energy is directed to both the dermal and subcutaneous layers to squeeze liquid fat and remove these via lymphatic drainage.

The heat that Trilipo produces also increases fat metabolism in the subcutaneous layer and triggers collagen production in the dermal layer. The result is not only fat reduction but also skin tightening. So if you are looking for body contouring on the abdomen, thighs and arms, and you are not yet qualified for CoolSculpting, TriLipo may prove to be a more effective treatment for you.

CoolSculpting works best for individuals who have already kept off excess weight and maintained their ideal weight, and want to treat particular body parts that are really resistant to all other efforts. TriLipo, on the other hand, is a kind of non-surgical liposuction that can be used not just on jiggly thighs but on any area of the body where safe fat removal can be performed.

What to Do with Cellulite?

After getting your thighs toned by CoolSculpting or TriLipo, you may still be worried of cellulites ruining the look. It’s the bane even of very fit women because no amount of exercise could banish them. You have to be ‘hands-on’ in treating sagging skin in the thighs with its accompanying cellulite, and that requires topical application of products that promote circulation and control fat production at the micro level.

Laser clinic Singapore patients who have just undergone CoolSculpting or Trilipo use the Slim Contour Cream with Slim Excess and Cell-Active Shape as body maintenance treatment to prevent the back of their thighs from further developing cellulite. The Slim Contour Cream is part of Dr. Sylvia Skin Care medical-grade body treatment program developed by Harvard-trained physician, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, a renowned dermatologist in Scotts Road, Singapore.

Dr. Sylvia’s Slim Contour Cream is botanically derived from red seaweed, caffeine and ivy plant, three of its active ingredients. Red seaweed and caffeine have long been known for their lipid-reducing action, while ivy plant is best known for its anti-inflammatory and vaso-constricting qualities, ideal for those with heavy legs due to fluid retention. In addition, the Slim Contour Cream not only improves tissue firmness but also smooths out uneven skin tone that usually accompanies cellulite.

How to Get Rid of Excess Fat in Your Thighs

The shape of your thighs and legs is largely influenced by your overall body type. This is why you can starve yourself to death, or exercise yourself to exhaustion, and still not have a thigh gap if you are not of particular body type.

Endomorphs are characterized by wide hips, short limbs and blocky body build, so when it comes to losing fat around their midsection and thigh area, they don’t just need any old exercise; they have to engage in high-intensity interval training to shed the same amount of fat as the other body types like the ectomorph (not much body fat) and mesomorph (well-proportioned build).

Endomorphs have to ditch sugar, starch and unhealthy fats in their diets altogether if they are to see noticeable changes in their body composition. Complex carbohydrates, some lean protein, and a bit of healthy fat should make up the bulk of their diet, or the gains from their exercise will be cancelled out by what goes directly from their lips to their hips, which endomorphs are prone to developing.
