Freeze Unwanted Fat with CoolSculpting® Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Technology

September 25, 2013 | Blog, CoolSculpting, Other

Owned and operated by the physicians at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C., AYA Medical Spa provides non-surgical alternatives for many patients who are not quite ready for comprehensive surgery to address concerns for their face and body. At AYA Avalon in Alpharetta and at Phipps Plaza Medical Spa, our licensed providers perform a variety of minimally invasive facial rejuvenation and new technology treatments to help patients of both Atlanta Plastic Surgery and AYA achieve their aesthetic goals. While we offer many treatments to reduce the signs of aging and skin conditions such as acne, scarring, or hyperpigmentation, AYA also offers a non-surgical process to address unwanted body fat. CoolSculpting® non-surgical fat reduction is a new technology that uses a freezing process to target unwanted fat cells on common problem areas including the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, and bra area.

As an alternative to surgical body contouring procedures, CoolSculpting® does not require surgery, incisions, scars, or any downtime. Through a process called Cryolipolysis<, CoolSculpting® externally applies cold temperatures to freeze unwanted fat cells. The body will gradually and naturally eliminate affected fat cells through the lymphatic system. As fat cells are naturally removed, patients will see up to a 20% fat reduction within 4-6 months post-treatment. Patients can also choose additional treatments for optimal fat reduction results. Since many problem areas include narrow or curved areas of the body such as the thighs, flanks, and bra area, we offer the CoolCurve+ applicator with curved cooling plates. This specially designed applicator allows a better fit and tissue draw for patients of all body types and shapes. According to a study conducted by Zeltiq® Aesthetics, the CoolCurve+ applicator was able to successfully treat 36% more CoolSculpting® patients who previously could not be treated due to their body shape.

AYA’s private CoolSculpting® treatment room allows patients to watch television, work on a tablet or laptop, read a book, or simply relax during treatment. Each CoolSculpting® treatment requires approximately one hour and patients can return to regular activity directly after their procedure.
