For many people, healthy eating and exercise alone aren't always enough to get rid of stubborn fat bulges. Fortunately there are a variety of treatments out there that could help you to slim down and achieve your desired results. Facial Aesthetics is excited to now be offering patients CoolSculpting, a clinically proven, FDA-approved, non-surgical contouring treatment. If you're interested in CoolSculpting or have questions about CoolSculpting, please call us in Denver at (855) 857-4770 today.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary procedure that uses cryolipolysis, a unique technology that uses controlled cooling to freeze stubborn fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from your body over the course of 2 to 3 months. The cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis allows the fat cells to break down without causing damage to other tissues.
Each area that you wish to get treatment on takes about an hour. Since the procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime and minimal discomfort which means regular activity can be resumed immediately following treatment.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is FDA-cleared and has been found to be a safe and effective method of contouring the body through targeting and freezing away unwanted fat cells beneath the skins surface. Results from the procedure are lasting because fat cells that have been eliminated do not regenerate.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
Once you have determined which areas you wish to treat, the CoolSculpting device is placed on the area and uses a vacuum suction between 2 specialized cooling panels. Once the device is activated, the panels will deliver an intense cold to the targeted fat. The pressure from the tissue being drawn into the applicator may cause sensations of tugging, pulling, or pinching.
After about 5 to 10 minutes of having the cold applied to the cells, patients will start to experience numbness in the area that is being treated. It is not uncommon to experience sensations of stinging, aching, tingling, and/or cramping during this time. Any symptoms that are felt will subside over time.
CoolAdvantage™ Now Offered
We are proud to announce that our office will now be offering patients the option of utilizing the CoolAdvantage™ applicator. This revolutionary system allows for a more versatile treatment option in areas with pinchable fat using a medium area vacuum cup. This option delivers a shorter treatment time, greater comfort with significantly less bruising after your procedure and the ability to provide more treatment to a larger area.
To see if the CoolAdvantage™ applicator is the best option for you, be sure to schedule your consultation with our experienced staff.
What to Expect After Your Procedure
Since the procedure is non-invasive, you should be able to resume your daily activities immediately. You may experience the following symptoms after the treatment:
- Tenderness and aching
- Cramping or muscle spasms
- Temporary blanching (whitening of skin)
The intensity of symptoms varies for different people and will subside over time without any lasting complications. Though not common, some patients may experience a delayed onset of symptoms that may last up to several weeks, including:
- Tingling, stinging, numbness
- Skin sensitivity
- Moderate to severe discomfort or pain
