Dreams Do Come True Because You Can Now Literally Melt Fat Off Your Body

I'm sure you've lain in bed on a Monday morning, regretting every food and beverage decision you made during the weekend and wishing you could just melt your love handles off.

Or maybe that's just me.

But, what if I told you a procedure that melts your fat off literally exists?

Getting fat removed from your body doesn't mean you have to go under the knife anymore. There are so many non-invasive cosmetic surgeries now, like injections, freezing your fat off and melting your fat off.

And I'm not talking about a fat-burning sweat sesh at the gym. I'm talking about melting it off with a machine called the BTL Vanquish Me.

Sounds fancy, right? Basically, it's a non-invasive, fat-melting machine.

It uses a large panel array to surround your core and legs, and then it uses selective radio frequency energy that "targets the thermal effects into the fat layer." It does all this while still protecting your skin and muscle tissue.

The virtually painless procedure is done in a handful of 45- to 60-minute sessions. It's mostly used for sections of the body, like your waist, back or legs, as opposed to the entire body.

Sounds too good to be true, right?

According to reviews, some of the side effects include tenderness of the treated area and maybe irritated skin. But, that's about it. A few people have felt pain, but it was most likely due to not hydrating enough beforehand.

Now more than ever, there are so many easy ways to handle unwanted fat that have nothing to do with stepping into a gym. I feel like these options make working out and slowly getting healthier look like torture.

In 2015, there were 15.9 million minimally-invasive and surgical procedures performed, which was a 2 percent increase from 2014. Non-surgical options only make plastic surgery more attractive, so that number will just keep going up.

Now that we can freeze and melt fat off ourselves, I wonder how many years it will take to just, like, sleep the fat off.
