Smoothing and shaping the body with in-office treatments has become more popular than ever before—and for good reason. These treatments are effective, accessible, and ultra-advanced, making them an ideal choice for many that are looking to mold themselves into their ideal body.
The latest body sculpting treatment to take over the aesthetics world is none other than EON by Dominion Aesthetic Technologies. This FDA-cleared laser device is completely external, meaning it never touches the skin like many of its competitors. Instead, the device hovers an inch over the patient’s body, emitting laser energy that destroys fat cells along the targeted area.
Results take some time to become apparent, occurring over the course of three to fourth months. During this period, the damaged fat cells in the treatment area are slowly expelled from the body through your natural lymphatic system. In studies conducted by the brand, researchers found an average fat loss percentage of 21.6 percent in the 12 weeks after a singular treatment.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. According to two patients treated by Chattanooga, TN plastic surgeon Chad Deal, MD, this procedure is one for the books. “I had a little bit of stubborn belly fat that I just couldn’t seem to get rid of,” explains the first patient, a young man who was treated along the abdomen. “I had two EON treatments and I am absolutely thrilled with my results! There was basically no pain involved, [each treatment] took [less than] 30 minutes, and I saw results in four weeks.”
According to Dr. Deal, this patient was an ideal candidate for the procedure. Not only were they close to their ideal weight, but they also were active, and had healthy skin. “Often men can get thin with the right diet and activity level but have stubborn fat right in the center of the abdomen hiding the abs—EON is perfect for this.”
A second patient that Dr. Deal treated, this time a woman, also had very desirable results post-treatment. “I had been dying to get my EON treatment after seeing the results that everyone else was getting,” she explained. “When I finally got it, I was not disappointed. There was no pain and I could lay there on my phone while I was getting it done—how fun!”
As with any procedure, it’s important for potential patients to have realistic expectations. While EON will not provide the same body-shaping outcome as a surgical procedure, it will still deliver favorable results. “It’s amazing to me as a surgeon how I can now use nonsurgical technology to truly sculpt without any pain or downtime,” says Dr. Deal.
Talk to your doctor to see if this treatment is ideal for your aesthetic concerns and goals. If you’re anything like these two patients, it’s likely you’ll be happy with the results, too.
