Plenty of people in the Bend area are at or near ideal body weight. Yet they are troubled by stubborn zones of fat on the tummy, inner thighs, or outer thighs. This pudge just won’t budge, despite healthy eating and physical activity. Are you one of them? Historically, your only option would have been liposuction, an invasive procedure where fat is sucked from the body through small incisions. Liposuction is effective, but it comes with the needles, cutting, recovery time, and scars associated with a surgical procedure. Today, you have a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative. EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center brings CoolSculpting to Oregon.
CoolSculpting works on the principle that lipids (fats) freeze at a higher temperature than liquids. Imagine putting a cup of butter and a cup of water, both at room temperature, into the freezer. The butter become solid much faster than the water.
A typical CoolSculpting session takes about an hour. You relax comfortably while the problematic bulge of fat is gently pulled into the device. It is cooled to a temperature that destroys fat cells without harm to your skin. Patients say they feel the suction and a cold sensation, but little discomfort and no pain. You may read, watch television, surf the internet on your tablet, or nap. Then we apply Z-Wave acoustic wave therapy as an alternative to manual massage, to enhance CoolSculpting treatment outcome. After that, you are free to return to normal activities. There may be some pinkness, but it disappears quickly, and there is absolutely no downtime.
You begin to see changes within a few weeks*, as fat cells are flushed* through the body’s natural processes. Noticeable improvement continues to develop for up for several months*. Your body does not replace these* fat cells, so if you gain weight in the future, it will not be concentrated in areas treated by CoolSculpting.
Because CoolSculpting is non-surgical and does not require anesthetic, there is no risk of drug-interaction. It is a safe, effective choice for most women and men who have stubborn pockets of fat.
