Non-surgical fat reduction is a popular procedure. Liposuction surgery is a very effective way to remove unwanted fat but does involve downtime. In this day and age, many people cannot afford that. If you want to remove fat without surgery and with no downtime (often over a lunchtime visit), CoolSculpting is your answer.
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis or fat freezing to eradicate fat. By using controlled subdermal cooling, CoolSculpting safely freezes fat cells that are then eliminated naturally via the lymph system. Safe and FDA approved, Coolsculpting can be a great treatment for both men and women. Optimal candidates should be generally healthy and 10-15 pounds from ideal weight and have small area of fat that resist diet and exercise with good skin tone.
The most commonly treated areas are flanks/love handles, Bra bulge/upper back, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, arms and chin.
With age, muscle mass and tone decreases. The loss of muscle mass particularly in the core area (stomach and back) can create a rounded and aged silhouette. Providence Plastic Surgery & Skin Center is proud to offer CoolTone from Allergan (the makers of CoolSculpting) that can strengthen, tighten and tone several areas of the body. Cooltone uses a powerful and patented magnetic muscle stimulation that can target individual muscles of the stomach, legs and butt. Paired with CoolSculpting, amazing, non-invasive body contouring can be achieved.
KYBELLA is the first FDA-approved injectable designed to target submental fat aka “double chin.” Kybella is an excellent option for healthy men and women who are bothered by submental fat but don’t want liposuction surgery. Kybella typically requires 2 or more treatments with full results shown in a few weeks.
