Tighten & Firm Skin with CoolSculpting® Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

January 22, 2015 | Blog, CoolSculpting, Other

CoolSculpting Atlanta & Alpharetta GAWith Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we at AYA Medical Spa want to help you look and feel your absolute best for your big date. If you’re really looking to take his breath away in your sexy, little red dress, CoolSculpting® is a great alternative to surgical body contouring procedures and does not require surgery, incisions, scars, or any downtime.

CoolSculpting® non-surgical fat reduction uses a freezing process to target unwanted fat cells on common problem areas including the thighs, saddlebags, hips, back, waist, buttocks, and knees. Using a process called Cryolipolysis, which uses extreme cold to freeze the fat within fat cells, CoolSculpting® damages the fat within cells and stimulates the body’s natural response. Over the next few weeks and months following treatment, the fat is removed through your body’s lymphatic system. Since the process is gradual, so are the results. Most patients begin to notice results within 3 weeks, but full results will appear in 4 to 6 months. CoolSculpting® patients notice, on average, a 20 percent fat reduction with one treatment once full results are present. Although generally unnecessary, some patients do pursue additional treatments to achieve the results they’re after, while others are more suited for a liposuction procedure. During your consultation, your licensed esthetician can help you determine if you’re a candidate.

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 for patients of all body types and shapes. According to a study conducted by Zeltiq® Aesthetics, the CoolCurve+ applicator can successfully treat 36 percent more CoolSculpting® patients who previously could not be treated due to their body shape.

During your treatment, while your skin may feel a bit cold, you will be able to relax, read, talk on the phone, or even email during your treatment that will last from one to three hours (depending on the amount of excess fat present and the size of the treatment area). Following your procedure, you will be able to immediately return to your normal activities.
