Dr. Alice McKee and the incredible staff at 23 Sandstone Body and Mind Spa in Jackson, Tennessee, offer a variety of fat reduction options so that you can be the best version of yourself. Learn about the permanent, non-surgical fat reduction options we offer, and we’ll answer your questions and help advise you on which ones work best for your specific goals.

When it comes to permanent fat reduction, you have options

At 23 Sandstone, we offer a collection fat reduction treatments that permanently remove fat and contour your body for a smoother silhouette, without the inconvenience and lengthy recovery periods that come with most invasive surgeries. Our treatments include the state-of-the-art technologies of:

Each of these fat reduction options works well on specific areas of your body to diminish fat and give you a more sculpted appearance, smooth your skin, or minimize the appearance of cellulite. Depending on your body type and desired outcome, we create a customized plan of one or more of the treatments so you get the most effective results.

How does Exilis Elite work?

The Exilis Elite is an FDA-approved fat reduction method that uses ultrasound and RF energy to target fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. This unique combination of energy breaks down fat cells and stimulates collagen production so your skin has a smoother, tighter appearance. The Exilis Elite handheld device has a built-in cooling system to keep you comfortable while it works, so most men and women experience little to no discomfort during a treatment.

The Exilis Elite controlled heating and cooling system effectively heats up hard-to-reach fat deposits to destroy them so your body can then easily eliminate dead fat cells. This system is an excellent choice for diminishing fat pockets around your waist, love handles, hips, thighs, and arms. You can get a smoother, more sculpted abdomen and neck, too, without the need for invasive surgeries.

And, once the fat is gone, it’s gone for good, so as long as you continue your healthy lifestyle, you’ll enjoy your newly improved body for years to come.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure is similar to the Exilis Elite system in that it targets and destroys fat cells in a specific area of your body; however, SculpSure does this with laser energy instead of ultrasound and RF energy. Much like the Exilis treatment, SculpSure’s thermal energy penetrates beneath the surface of your skin to eradicate fat cells so your body can flush them out. Once the fat is gone, you’re left with a smoother, more sculpted abdomen, back, thighs, love handles, or chin.

Treatments take about 25 minutes per area, and you may be able to treat more than one area at the same time. Most men and women feel a warming or tingling sensation in the treatment area, but are generally comfortable. After a session, you can resume your daily activities without downtime or post-treatment special instructions.

How does the Zimmer ZWave system work?

The Zimmer ZWave system is an ideal solution for improving the appearance of cellulite and creating firmer, smoother skin. With just a few noninvasive treatments, you’ll see visible results as connective tissue and collagen structure improve beneath your skin’s surface. The sound waves and radial pulse technology stimulate collagen production and improve blood circulation. It works by itself, or is a nice complement to other fat reduction methods as well.

Like the other fat reduction systems, the Zimmer ZWave treatment is painless and there’s no downtime. Essentially, you can come to 23 Sandstone for fat reduction treatments anytime that fits into your busy schedule, because you’ll be able to get right back to your daily routine after any of the noninvasive treatments we offer.

We all look forward to spring and summer outdoor events and festivals in Jackson. Get started with fat reduction today, and you’ll have the body you’ve always dreamed of by the time you head outside to enjoy the warm weather.
