This is the time of year many of us begin to wonder why our diet and exercise efforts have failed to remove your love handles and that muffin top. Fortunately, CoolSculpting® provides a way to treat small, stubborn pockets of excess fat. Plus, it’s the coolest fat reduction treatment you can find during this hot summer in Atlanta. In addition to FDA-clearance for fat reduction of the flanks, CoolSculpting was recently FDA-cleared for abdominal fat reduction.
Although you may feel a slight pinch when the device is placed on your skin, the treatment area will become numb after a few minutes. During this time you’ll have a chance to enjoy yourself and relax while reading, using a laptop, talking on the phone, etc. The technology works by using a cooling process that freezes sub-dermal fat within the treatment area. The temperature alters the fat cells beyond viability, and over time, the fat is flushed out through the body’s natural processes. Patients report noticing visible results about two months after their treatment, but full results appear in four to six months. Although you may not see a full result by the end of the summer, you’ll feel more comfortable in a swimsuit knowing you’re doing something in addition to your regular diet and exercise routine. Plus, right now you can save up to $200 on CoolSculpting at AYA through August 31st (see our specials page for more details).
We also have an assortment of other skin care treatments to meet your skin’s needs this summer. Although laser treatments are best reserved for colder months, patients who do not plan on spending time in the sun can usually receive summer laser treatments without increasing hyperpigmentation risk. However, if you do plan on soaking up some sun, you can opt for non-laser treatments until later in the year. One of our favorite new, non-laser summer skin treatments is Ultherapy®.
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin tightening solution perfect for sagging eyelids and brows, and lax skin on the neck and cheeks. By using an ultrasound device, Ultherapy® maps out the areas to target and heats up the deeps layers of skin to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin for a youthful appearance. Since collagen stimulation is gradual, full results appear in the two or three months following treatment. Although your skin will appear flushed immediately following treatment, very little downtime is necessary.
