VIDEO: Consider combining treatments when body sculpting


 

AT SDEF LAS VEGAS DERMATOLOGY SEMINAR

LAS VEGAS– Currently, there are available treatments that are effective in contouring the body, Christopher B. Zachary, MD, said in a video interview at Skin Disease Education Foundation’s annual Las Vegas Dermatology Seminar.

Some devices can help patients looking for reductions of trouble spots, such as around the abdomen, and are safe and effective, said Dr. Zachary of the University of California, Irvine. However, they are not a realistic option for obese or overweight patients, he added.

In addition, other treatments can be combined with body sculpting devices to optimize results, particularly when removing fat in the submental area, he noted.

Dr. Zachary disclosed relationships with Solta, Zeltiq, Sciton, DUSA, Zimmer, Cutera, Alma, and Amway.
