How would you like to get rid of that ever-present muffin top, those not-so- loveable love handles, those persistently flabby flanks or that impossible bra roll on your back? All you have to do is say hello to CoolSculpting®, the new, revolutionary non-surgical fat reduction method that, for some, may be an alternative to laser liposuction like SmartLipo, ProLipo and SlimLipo.
Many of us–even relatively thin or toned folks–still have stubborn fat that won’t budge. Those unwanted bulges contain fat cells, which are often resistant to diet and exercise but not to CoolSculpting. Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting is a revolutionary FDA-approved nonsurgical fat reduction and body contouring procedure that freezes stubborn fat, which is then naturally eliminated, by the body. CoolSculpting in Westchester at Bellava is a great choice for those patients who are not interested in surgery since there is no anesthesia required, no knife, no suction noses, no scarring and no downtime!
How CoolSculpting Works:
CoolSculpting works by using controlled cooling, or “freezing,” to target and crystallize fat cells. Crystallized fat cells gradually die off, and then are naturally eliminated from your body. In the weeks and months following a treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer from the desire area. Since CoolSculpting works to freeze fat cells deep below the skin’s surface, the outer layer of skin is not damaged nor is there any scarring.
In general, a CoolSculpting treatment on 1 area takes about an hour. During the first 5 minutes of the procedure, patients may experience pressure or cold but these sensations usually subside as the area becomes numb.During CoolSculpting procedures at our comfortable and luxurious Westchester medical Spa, patients often read, watch movies or even listen to music on their iPad and some even take a nap. After a CoolSculpting treatment, patients can resume your normal activities immediately.
Many patients see 70% of their CoolSculpting results within 6-8 weeks after treatment and 100% of their results within 4 to 5 months. While you can lose up to 25% of your fat cells from a desired area such as upper abdomen with 1 CoolSculpting treatment, i2 or more treatments are usually recommended for optimal results.
What’s The Difference Between CoolSculpting and SlimLipo™
An ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is someone who is within 10-20 pounds of his or her desired weight but has a stubborn problem area that simply won’t budge despite diet and exercise.
Like CoolSculpting, SlimLipo is a revolutionary FDA-approved fat reduction procedure that safely and effectively removes fat cells. SlimLipo, however, uses “fat melting” laser technology to not only remove fat, but also to tighten skin and re-sculpt the body. The SlimLipo laser procedure is performed using a small cannula (or tube) inserted into the skin. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to “melt.” Simultaneously, dermal tissue around the area is heated, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue. Unlike traditional lipo, SlimLipo is an in office procedure that is minimally invasive and can be performed under local anesthesia. Depending on the body area being treated, SlimLipo procedures usually take from 2-3 hours.
SlimLipo is a better choice than CoolSculpting if you are seeking a greater amount of fat reduction in 1 session, and if you need skin tightening. SlimLipo can tackle the same areas as CoolSculpting–muffin top (tummy pooch), love handles, flanks and bra rolls. PLUS it can treatmany other body areas as well–such as the buttocks, chin & neck, male chest, thighs, upper arms and ankles.
It’s important to note that both CoolSculpting and SlimLipo permanently remove fat. That means the fat won’t come back– as long as you maintain a steady weight that does not fluctuate above 15 or so pounds. Neither CoolSculpting nor SlimLipo treatment should be regarded as replacements for proper diet and exercise, but rather as effective means to eliminate body fat that defies calorie restriction and/or workouts. At Bellava, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James R. Lyons is renowned for carrying out SlimLipo procedures in Westchester, NY.
