As summer draws near, it’s time to think about getting that bikini out of hiding soon. If the idea of donning the bathing suit is filling you with more than a little anxiety, perhaps a body contouring treatment is the solution. At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we have a non- surgical option to help you meet your bikini goals before summer is upon us. CoolSculpting can freeze away that unwanted fat, giving you the confidence to hit the beach this year.
The Lowdown on CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting delivers controlled cooling to unwanted pockets of fat, destroying fat cells in the area so they can be eliminated naturally. The procedure works on the principle that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells of the body, allowing for the destruction of those cells without causing trauma to surrounding skin and tissue. As the fat cells are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system, you will see the treatment area become leaner and smoother over time.
Upping the Game
Since CoolSculpting was first introduced, improvements have been made to the device to improve the patient experience and outcome. Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics has invested in these advancements to give our patients the best possible procedure and results. Those enhancements include:
- The CoolMini applicator that allows us to treat smaller areas like behind the knees, the upper arms and underneath the chin.
- CoolAdvantage technology that shortens treatment time from 60 minutes to just 35 minutes per session.
- DualSculpting involves the use of multiple applicators so we can treat two areas at the same time for even more time savings.
Considered one of the most efficient FDA-approved methods of body contouring without surgery, it is no wonder why so many patients are turning to CoolSculpting as a means to feel more confident in their body-baring summer clothing.
While CoolSculpting offers dramatic, long-lasting body contouring results, those results are not immediate. It takes time for the treated fat cells to be eliminated and for the body contour to reflect the change. Most of our patients will start to see the slimming process about three weeks after treatment. However, results can continue to improve for up to six months as the body continues to flush out treated cells.
The timing of your results will also be dependent on precisely how much fat you would like to lose. A single CoolSculpting treatment session will remove about 25 percent of the extra fat in the treatment area. If you would like a greater slimming effect, you may decide to do a second CoolSculpting treatment a few months after the first. This will extend the amount of time it takes to achieve your full bikini goals.
Maintaining Your Results
The good news is that once those results are obtained they can be permanent. It is up to you to keep up the healthy lifestyle that will ensure your results are maintained over the long haul. Many of our patients find they are so excited about their CoolSculpting results, they are much more motivated to stick to a diet and exercise plan to keep them up.
