Does Body Shaping work on Women over 50

Body Shaping for Women Over the Age of 50

When a balanced diet and frequent exercise regimen aren’t enough to push past a plateau when it comes to fat loss and muscle building, you might find yourself looking for something to supplement your healthy lifestyle. This is especially the case later in life, as aging takes hold of our body’s ability to retain muscle mass and our metabolisms slow down. Even the healthiest individuals will deal with this inevitable result of getting older — but it is specifically more prevalent in women over 50. Once a woman reaches this age, there are certain hormonal changes that happen in the body that cause a decrease in muscle mass, as well as a loss of elasticity in muscles and tendons.

Body Shaping for Women

Don’t lose hope, though! Women over 50 can still retain muscle mass. Body shaping might be just the thing to help it stick when used as a supplement to body toning activities such as strength training and flexibility training.

We aren’t talking about surgical body shaping. Ladies, you don’t need to go under the knife to get a tight and toned body after the age of 50. Medical advancements in the cosmetic treatment industry have allowed for the approval of highly innovative, non-invasive body contouring devices that safely and effectively sculpt those areas of the body where extra body fat just doesn’t want to budge and the muscles are in need of more definition.

PHYSIQ Body Contouring Offered At Fox Vein & Laser Experts

While there are multiple devices like this on the market, Fox Vein & Laser Experts is proud to have the only one that utilizes a unique technology called STEP (Sequential Thermal and Electrical Pulse). PHYSIQ is an FDA-cleared body contouring device that helps patients address their trouble areas and reach their body goals by alternating between two kinds of technologies during the treatment. First, it heats the body to target the tissue; then, it contracts the muscles to stimulate and re-educate them to reach the desired result. There is never any heat spike because the temperature only reaches a therapeutic level and remains the same throughout the entire treatment, which lasts no more than one hour. Patients have complete control over their comfort levels with a control button that allows them to modify the energy emittance.

PHYSIQ has four small applicators, each equipped with silicone gel pads, and these applicators can be used simultaneously to target more than one area at once. Arms, legs, buttocks, abdomen, flanks… This device has proven to make significant changes to the body by lifting, sculpting, toning and tightening whatever area it is used on. No surgery, no needles, no stitches, no pain, and no recovery or downtime is needed. All of these reasons, and more, make it an ideal option for body shaping for women over 50.
