Body contouring devices are used in the process of altering the human body, such as the removal of excess fat. The procedures used for achieving the desired shape of an individual's body include body lifting, bra line lift, body fat transfer, implants and abdominal etching. The cultural pressures to reduce fat, rejuvenate skin and lose weight in order to improve body aesthetics have provided a major impetus to the growth of the market for body contouring devices.
Body contouring devices may be broadly classified as invasive, minimally invasive and non-invasive. Historically, invasive techniques and procedures such as liposuction were widely used for removing excess body fat. However, the adverse effects, long recuperation periods and high cost associated with these techniques deterred many potential customers from undergoing these techniques. The growing demand for aesthetic cosmetic procedures has led to the development of novel modalities for noninvasive/ minimally invasive body contouring. Non-invasive techniques primarily target the physical properties of fat by stimulation through laser, radiofrequency or high-intensity focused ultrasound. The stimulation causes either a reduction in the size of fat, necrosis, or apoptosis of adipocytes.
Reasons for Doing This Study
Body contouring is usually adopted by individuals who have undergone bariatric surgeries or who are obese. The increase in the number of overweight individuals has led to increased adoption of body contouring devices. Moreover, an increase in the number of aesthetic procedures performed worldwide promotes demand for body contouring devices. Furthermore, development of cost-effective, less painful and easy-to-use devices is the key target for companies in this field. Advances in technology, such as mesotherapy, infrared technology, laser-lypolysis, dynamic pulse control (DPC), radio-frequency therapy and intense pulse light (IPL), have also facilitated market growth.
Body contouring can improve the overall appearance of obese individuals who have lost a huge amount of weight and want to get rid of the pendulous fat that has lost elasticity and consequently which cannot be naturally toned. Body contouring devices are being used in hospitals, clinics and spa centers. Body contouring device manufacturers such as Alma Lasers Ltd., Cynosure, Meridian Co. Ltd., Lumenis, Merz Pharma, and Syneron Medical Ltd. (Syneron Candela), and others are at the forefront of advances in the field of body contouring devices.
