Individuals who want to fit better in their jeans or feel more confident in a swimsuit often think the only way to accomplish their goals is by logging hours at the gym or restricting their diets. While diet and exercise are critical to healthy lifestyles, there are often areas of the body that can’t be targeted on the treadmill or in a yoga class. That’s where the team at EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center, LLC can help. Ms. Covey and team offer CoolSculpting, a noninvasive body sculpting treatment that delivers the results her patients want.
Like liposuction, CoolSculpting is a device that targets specific areas of the body. However, unlike liposuction, it is non-invasive and does not require an incision, anesthesia, or stitches. CoolSculpting works by using a handheld device to pull the skin into the applicator, which then freezes the fat. The fat cells are destroyed by the cold temperatures and are removed from the body by way of the body’s natural elimination process.
Coolsculpting treatment is quick and effective. Many patients can fit a treatment in during their lunch hour and return to work once it’s over. During the treatment, patients can sit back and relax, chat on their phones, watch Netflix or Hulu while ordering breakfast or lunch from a curated menu for specific diet plans. Most people do not experience pain, although some do report loss of feeling in the treated area or that their skin turns pink or bruises. These effects typically dissipate very quickly. CoolSculpting requires little to no downtime and most patients can resume their daily activities right away.
Because CoolSculpting works using the body’s elimination process, results of CoolSculpting do not appear immediately. However, in three weeks patients will notice a change, with the full effect taking up to six months. Most patients report that the treated area reduces fat an average of 20 – 25 percent. Patients who want to achieve greater fat loss, can schedule an additional procedure.
CoolSculpting is an individualized treatment that should be discussed with your provider. Often patients will want to address more than one area of the body and each treatment area may require several sessions for the best results. Therefore, cost varies from patient to patient. EsthetixMD offers a membership rewards program to help patients get the most value for their investment.
CoolSculpting is an effective procedure for both men and women. It can be used to treat many areas of the body such as the inner or outer thighs, obliques, abdomen, and back. However, it’s important to note that it is not designed to be a weight loss treatment. Patients should be at or near their optimal weight before undergoing the CoolSculpting treatment.
The team at EsthetixMD Spa & Laser goes above and beyond for their patients. CoolSculpting, and all their treatments, are performed in a state-of-the-art office, by a team that understands your needs and desired results, and with services and technology, like nutritional planning and 3D body imaging, to help you achieve those goals.
