What Areas Can You Treat With CoolSculpting?
Do you have pockets of stubborn fat that do not seem to respond to diet and exercise? Stubborn pockets of fat can make you feel like you aren’t as fit or healthy as you could be. If you want to get rid of stubborn fat for good, CoolSculpting can help you achieve long-lasting results and can be used to treat most of the common areas where fat is deposited. If you have any questions, contact Pierre Skin Care Institute in Thousand Oaks, CA for more information.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses Cryolipolysis to freeze away unwanted fat. The treatment device was developed by Allergan and provides fat elimination of 20% to 25% in one treatment session without the need for invasive surgical procedures. Patients can eliminate fat quickly and easily without traditional workouts and dieting. The treatment is perfect for those who want to lose those last pockets of fat after a weight loss transformation.
What Areas Can You Treat With CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting offers versatility to target unwanted fat on almost every part of the body. The treatment is FDA cleared for the treatment of nine different areas of the body. The handheld body sculpting device is used by Dr. Pierre to perform the treatment, and various applicator tips can be used to target fat on many parts of the body.
The midsection is a common area for fat elimination treatment using two applicators. CoolCore can target the upper and lower abdomen to remove unwanted fat along the abdomen. The flanks, where “love handles” are present, and the area where back fat deposits along the bra can be treated with CoolCurve.
Arms and Legs
Fat deposits on the arms and legs can be difficult to remove with diet and exercise. The underarms and knees can be treated with the CoolMini applicator designed for smaller treatment areas. CoolFit is designed for the inner thighs, and CoolPetite is a new applicator for the upper arms. The CoolPetite applicator can also be used to treat the fat below the buttocks. Dense fat on the outer thighs that requires a flat applicator can be treated with the CoolSmooth Pro applicator, which does not provide suction like the other applicators.
Stubborn Submental Fat
Fat on the jawline or neck that forms the common “double chin” can be frustrating. Submental fat will not easily be removed with traditional methods. The CoolMini applicator can remove this fat from the neck and jawline to make your face and body overall appear thinner and younger.
What to Expect From Treatment
The body sculpting treatment is completed in our Thousand Oaks office location without the need to stay overnight or visit a hospital. Our office is easily accessible from Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Camarillo, Ventura, Oxnard, Moorpark, or Simi Valley. A consultation will ensure that the treatment is safe and will provide you with a substantial benefit. We can plan out your first session, and you will be instructed to keep your weight within 10 pounds of your current body weight until the date of the first treatment session.
A treatment session takes as little as 35 minutes to complete and generally takes no more than an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. Some patients will only need one treatment session, and most treatments can be concluded in only two sessions. The treatment sessions are spaced around eight weeks apart.
Over the first three months, your body will naturally remove the frozen and destroyed fat cells and you will see your results improve. The improvement of your results will continue until you see the sum of the results after six months. Patients generally do not require a touch up after their goal is reached, and proper diet and exercise will increase the longevity of the results.
Is It Safe?
The treatment is safe for patients who are healthy and close to their ideal weight, but it is not a weight loss solution or a quick cure for obesity. The treatment is painless, and most patients only feel numbness or minor discomfort. This treatment is not recommended for pregnant or nursing patients, but it is safe to get pregnant after the treatment. The drawback is that the results from the treatment will likely be lost during pregnancy. This treatment is a safe alternative to liposuction and surgery.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
Patients of all ages, gender, and skin types can safely benefit from the treatment. The treatment is ideal for those who are already healthy and just want to lose stubborn deposits of fat that diet and exercise can’t seem to address. This treatment is not recommended for patients seeking significant fat or weight loss, but it can make your clothing fit better and help you lose inches from your waist.
Patients with a busy schedule can enjoy the treatment during a lunch break and return to work or their normal routine immediately. There is no downtime or recovery time associated with this body sculpting treatment.
