As we all prepare for the warm Atlanta weather, the licensed providers of AYA™ Medical Spa would like to help our patients not only look and feel confident with their facial skin, but also with their bodies. New technology like our Sciton® laser treatments improve patients’ complexions by addressing conditions such as acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. Another skin care technology, Ultherapy® skin tightening, firms sagging skin on the neck and lower facial area for a younger, rejuvenated appearance. In addition to facial cosmetic treatments, AYA™ Avalon in Alpharetta and Phipps Plaza also offers CoolSculpting® non-surgical fat reduction for patients concerned with small pockets of unwanted fat.
CoolSculpting® uses a process called Cryolipolysis to apply extreme cold temperatures to freeze stubborn fat cells in targeted areas on the abdomen, hips, and flanks. The affected fat cells are then naturally eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system. While the body processes the fat over time, patients report a 20-40% fat reduction within 4-6 months after initial treatment. Most patients see noticeable results after one treatment but some may opt for additional treatments for optimal results.
Unlike traditional surgical procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting® does not require anesthesia, incisions, compression garments, or even any downtime. This non-invasive fat reduction allows patients to relax during treatment. At AYA, patients can watch television, read a book, work on a laptop or tablet, or simply relax in our private treatment room. Treatment times are approximately one hour per area, and patients can return to regular activity immediately after treatment.
CoolSculpting® is a great and safe alternative to surgical procedures, especially for patients who are not yet ready for surgery or those that do not want the downtime associated with body contouring surgery. If you are interested in CoolSculpting® non-surgical fat reduction or any other new technology skin treatment we offer, contact us today to schedule a skin analysis.
