Certain fat areas in your body are extremely “resistant” to exercise and diet and are difficult areas to lose fat, that’s why they are called “Stubborn fat” they won’t just obey the rules. Stubborn fats are usually located in the dreaded belly, chin, under arm, hip, and thigh regions of your body and you almost can never lose fat in these areas, no matter what. For both men and women one of the toughest parts of staying fit and looking good is getting rid of stubborn fat.
- Double chin
- Under arm fat
- Breast reduction
- Love handles/muffin top
- Abdominal fat
- Outer and inner thighs
- bra bulge
Exercising three or four times a week, sweating heavily at the gym, reducing calories, eating healthy and juicing more than you would like, just to see the same roll of fat around your hips or under your arms could be very frustrating. Stubborn fat has nothing to do with actually being “fat.” It has everything to do with your genes and hormonal factors. I know, how unfair!
Imagine never again having to suffer through strange diets or grueling workout routines with disappointing results. GEM LIPOSCULTURE grants you the opportunity to have that tight waist and those washboard abs you’ve always wanted…all year round.
Getting a six pack is not the easiest thing to achieve, but it seems that getting rid of that muffin top is on everyone’s list of goals. Do you know what is muffin top? A muffin-top (or "muffin top") is a slang term typically used to describe a man or woman's skin or body fat that is visible above the waistline of pants or skirts because of tight clothing.
Every fat cell in your body has either more alpha or beta receptors. The alpha receptors tell the fat cell to stay around while the beta receptors signal the fat cells to break down and provide fuel to the body in the form of energy. Hormonal changes and inputs can change the number of fat cells that have more alpha versus beta receptors.
Unfortunately, fat cells with more alpha than beta receptors tend to be more resistant to diet and exercise changes. So while you are losing weight and getting your diet and exercise on track, the fat cells with beta receptors respond nicely and shrink while the ones with more alpha receptors lag behind and frustrate the heck out of us. In these instances, no amount of dieting or exercise will ever get rid of that paunch or bulge of fat.
In other words, your body has primed itself to resist further losses in body fat as well as made it far more likely you'll soon engage in a three-month doughnut, chocolate binge (1500-2000 calories). And you are back to zero again or even worst.
And guess where you're more likely to store all the regained fat. You guessed it, the stubborn fat areas you were trying to burn in the first place! So, not only does extreme dieting make you fatter, but it makes stubborn fat even more stubborn.
Thanks to new technologies, it is now possible to remove stubborn fat pockets and enhance body shape without surgery, scars or downtime. Non-surgical fat reduction includes minimally invasive treatments that selectively break down fat cells in specific areas to reduce the size of subcutaneous fat pockets (fat deposits that sit beneath the skin, but above the muscle). At GEM clinic, a number of FDA approved treatments are available to carefully sculpt and contour your body to the shape you have always wanted. Methods used in GEM clinic includes:
