You haven’t changed your exercise routine or diet. Yet bulges and soft spots around your middle and thighs appeared, seemingly, overnight.
Perhaps you’ve spent a lifetime in the gym and counting calories — only to see no difference in those love handles or that muffin top.
Seriously Skin offers CoolSculpting by Allergan Aesthetics, an FDA-approved procedure that targets trouble spots and eliminates the fat cells responsible for those stubborn areas.
This safe and effective procedure is based on the science of “cryolipolysis,” a mix of “cryo” (freezing), “lipo” (fat) and “lysis” (loosening). As its name suggests, cryolipolysis applies cool temperatures in a controlled, gentle manner to eliminate fat cells underneath the skin.
Leveraging the knowledge that fat cells behave differently to extreme cold than skin cells, this technology causes targeted fat to crystallize or freeze. While these cells are affected, the skin and surrounding tissue remains undamaged.
In the following weeks (usually four to six months), the cells are naturally flushed from the body.
With weight loss and other “fat-reducing” treatments, the fat cells decrease in size but the number of cells remains the same. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger again. With the cryolipolysis-powered CoolSculpting treatment, there are no fat cells to grow again because the cells are eliminated. You’ll look slim, and your wardrobe will look flattering on you.
What to expect
CoolSculpting is the only treatment of its kind approved by the FDA. Its origins are rooted in the Harvard University-affiliated Wellman Center for Photomedicine. Renowned Drs. Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson noticed some kids developed dimples after consuming popsicles, which led to further research on how to harness low temperatures to selectively damage subcutaneous fat while leaving skin untouched.
Unlike liposuction or other surgical techniques, there are no incisions or anesthesia. Because it’s a non-invasive procedure, you don’t have to worry about long and painful healing. You can check your emails or read magazines during the procedure, in the comfort of our office. After about an hour, you can return to work or home.
Cool results, sculpted you
Approved specifically for treating unwanted fat on your sides, belly and thighs, CoolSculpting starts with a device that isolates the problem spot between two cooling panels. After a few minutes, the feeling of pressure and intense cold subsides. You’re free to relax as the cold works to freeze the fat cells.
Any redness, bruising or discomfort will go away soon after treatment. From then on, expect to see results in as early as three weeks. Even more dramatic results can be seen after three months, but fat cells continue to be eliminated up to six months after treatment. And while CoolSculpting is proven to reduce fat by up to 20 percent in just one visit, it’s safe to use on additional areas, over multiple visits.
More than one million people around the globe have seen CoolSculpting do what decades of diet and exercise couldn’t. There are no pills or supplements to take, or diet and fitness regimens to follow. If anything, you’ll be inspired to keep your new (or regained) shape by sticking to the good habits.
