Scared of a Facelift? Consider Freezing Your Chin Fat With CoolSculpting

If the thought of going under the knife to help make you look both younger and leaner scares you half to death, you are not alone. And although procedures like facelifts bring patients remarkable results, there’s a new procedure in town that can offer you equally as good of results: CoolSculpting. As one of Fix Laser & Skin Center’s best procedures, CoolSculpting provides readers with the best results possible. Not sold on the idea of CoolSculpting? Read on to learn more.

It’s Non-Invasive

Other than the results themselves, the best part about CoolSculpting is its non-invasive nature. By simply using a system called cryolipolysis, an applicator head is placed underneath the chin and uses a gentle suction to help cool the tissues and fat cells. Once the fat cells and tissues are properly cooled, they will eventually slough off into the body and you will naturally excrete them through your urine after a few months time.

No Scarring

Although surgeons pride themselves on being able to hide the scars involved with a facelift, the scars do still exist, whether they be behind your ears or at the top of your scalp. However, as one of the many other benefits of CoolSculpting, there is no scarring involved in the process. In fact because there are no incisions made to your skin, you won’t have to deal with healing from a scar or covering it up.

No Down Time

When it comes to getting a facelift you can plan on being in recovery for at least a few weeks. Because the facelift procedure itself is fairly invasive, you will have to rest and give your body an ample amount of time to heal. However, with CoolSculpting you can literally head right back to work right after your procedure because there is no downtime at all— meaning that you will save yourself on both time and money.

It’s Effective

Other than it’s non-invasive nature, the lack of scarring, and no downtime required, the single best benefit to getting CoolSculpting over a facelift is the fact that you will receive remarkable results. That fat that is hiding under your chin and making you look more like a turkey than a human will simply melt away after a few months and will make you look slimmer and younger.

As you can see, there are many benefits to choosing CoolSculpting to help get rid of your chin fat in comparison to getting a facelift. If you would like to learn more about CoolSculpting or if you would like to see if you are a suitable candidate, contact Fix Laser & Skin Center today!

Get Gorgeous Gams with Coolsculpting®

Coolsculpting®Feeling self conscious about any area of your body can be a downer, especially when warm weather beckons you to be outdoors in shorts and t-shirts. We consult with patients all the time who complain that the effort they put into health and fitness doesn’t translate into a more attractive body shape. In particular, areas such as the thighs and the “muffin top” can be extremely challenging. Does this sound familiar to you? Find out how you can break free from thigh fat by freezing it with Coolsculpting®.

Freeze it and Forget it

The idea of freezing fat cells may sound primitive, but this innovative method of fat-reduction has been making beautiful waves across the globe for only a few years. Coolsculpting®, for many people, takes the place of liposuction in the attainment of the spot reduction most people have been told is impossible. We are here to tell you it is possible, and that you can have slimmer, tighter thighs without surgery.

With Coolsculpting®, you can freeze it and forget it. The process is simple. It requires no downtime, and the results you can achieve are sustainable with healthy eating and exercise habits. Multiple sessions are typically necessary to whittle down unwanted fat cells, but the 60-minute sessions can prove a relaxing break from your hectic day. During these visits, fatty deposits are targeted with controlled temperature. Once the desired cooling has been achieved, tiny crystals form inside of fat cells. This leads to their natural elimination during the weeks following treatment.

Join the Slim Thigh Club

In clinical trials, the FDA-approved Coolsculpting® treatment achieved 15% to 20% reduction in thigh fat over a three month period. 86% of patients treated in FDA trials reported noticeably thinner thighs after four months. While diet and exercise remain important aspects to physical appearance, it is good to know that the cells that are eliminated with Coolsculpting® do not come back.

Are you concerned about fat accumulation on your outer thighs, but aren’t interested in the time and monetary investment liposuction requires? See what Coolsculpting® can do to help you feel better about your legs! Schedule a consultation at Fix Laser & Skin Center.

Resolve the Double-Chin Dilemma with CoolSculpting

CoolsculptingMany people, when they look in the mirror, try to remain “eyes up.” If focus remains on the center and upper portions of the face, it may be easier to avoid noticing the waddle, or excess fat and skin on the neck. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, which conducted a poll about top aesthetic concerns in 2014, 70% of those polled reported concerns with submental fullness, or a double-chin. 70% is a lot of people wanting to whittle down the area just south of the face!

Until 2015, really, the only resolution for submental fullness was found with cosmetic surgery. Men and women wanting to address a double-chin could do so with liposuction, a mini-facelift, or a neck lift; all of which carried a hefty price tag and a fair amount of risk. Last year, the FDA approved Kybella® for the treatment of double chins. This method of localized fat reduction involves a series of treatments during which dozens of injections are given. Make no mistake, Kybella® has been a huge step forward in aesthetic medicine. However, many of the folks we talk to aren’t too keen on the number of injections, or the number of treatments it takes to melt away unwanted fat. At Fix Laser & Skin Center, there is another option.

Introducing the CoolMini™

The CoolSculpting procedure has become quite widely recognized in recent years. This innovative method of fat-reduction has helped many patients regain confidence in their body contours. Around the time that the FDA approved Kybella®, the CoolMini™ also gained approval for the treatment of submental fullness, and patients have been exploring this fat-melting treatment ever since.

Why all the excitement about the CoolMini™? No injections. No incisions. No downtime. What else is there? Oh yes, outstanding results! The CoolMini™ works under the same pretense as the standard CoolSculpting treatment, which has been successful in its intended purpose of reducing love handles, muffin tops, and other pockets of fat, for several years.

Freeze the Fat!

The way that fat is destroyed with this system is call cryolipolysis, or freezing. To treat the localized area beneath the chin, the applicator head applies gentle suction against the skin and subcutaneous tissue where fat has accumulated. These tissues are cooled in a controlled manner. The effect of this cooling is the formation of crystals inside of the targeted fat cells. Crystallization prompts a response from the body’s immune system in which these cells are flushed away over the course of a few months.

Is it time to feel better about your profile? Call Fix Laser & Skin Center to learn more about CoolMini™.

Fun Facts: 3 Things You Might Not Know About Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting has taken the weight loss and cosmetic surgery world by storm. By offering patients the ability to get that body they’ve always wanted without having to go under the knife, CoolSculpting has both men and women lining up to get this procedure done. However, because CoolSculpting is still fairly new on the market, there are several things that you may not know about the procedure itself. Here are three fun facts that you may not know about CoolSculpting:

  1. Voted #1 Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Surgery

CoolsculptingWhen it comes to fat reduction surgery, people typically think of liposuction. And although liposuction offers patients amazing results, the invasive nature and recovery of the procedure itself can be a deterrent for many. That’s why CoolSculpting has been voted the #1 non-invasive fat reduction surgery. By giving you similar results in more time than liposuction, CoolSculpting allows patients to get in and out of the doctor in no time. And recovery time? What’s that?

  1. It Takes Time

If you have scheduled a CoolSculpting treatment just weeks before a beach vacation, hoping that you will be able to show off your newly sculpted body, then you might be disappointed. Due to the technology and procedural guidelines themselves, CoolSculpting takes around four to six months for patients to start seeing actual results. Why is this exactly? CoolSculpting uses a technology that freezes your fat cells. Once the cells have been frozen, it will take time for them to slough off and become dissolved by your body.

  1. It’s for Stubborn Areas

Often times, people associated weight loss surgery with things like gastric bypass surgery. However, procedures like CoolSculpting and liposuction are designed to not give your entire body a transformed look, but rather, they are designed to rid your body of stubborn areas of fat. For instance, if you live a healthy lifestyle— eat well and exercise often— but you can’t seem to get rid of your love handles or maybe that extra layer of fat around your middle, then CoolSculpting is the perfect procedure for you.

3 Unique Aspects of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, revolutionary procedure designed to freeze away stubborn fat cells in order to give patients a leaner looking and feeling body. Designed for individuals who are both fit and healthy but are having a hard time losing fat in a trouble area like the upper thighs or abdomen, CoolSculpting can help bring you closer to that ideal body that you’ve always dreamt of. If you are considering getting CoolSculpting done but are still on the fence, read this article to learn more about 3 unique aspects of CoolSculpting.

  1. It’s Excreted, How?
    CoolSculptingUnlike liposuction surgery where tiny incisions are made all over your body and then a vacuum like device is used to suck up the fat, CoolSculpting doesn’t require any sort of incision at all. But then, where does the fat go? After about 2-4 months— depending on your body— the fat cells that were targeted will be metabolized by your body and you will excrete them through your urine. Sound painful? Don’t worry, it isn’t. In fact, you won’t notice a thing while urinating.
  2. You Can Use It In Conjunction With Other Procedures
    If you are considering getting a procedure like liposuction done but are still intrigued by CoolSculpting, you don’t have to choose between these two procedures. In fact, many patients prefer to get CoolSculpting done after liposuction. Why exactly? If you got liposuction done on your abdomen but are worried about a little bit of fat you have on your upper thighs as well, you may want something less invasive— that’s where CoolSculpting comes into play.
  3. It’s Pain Free
    You’ve heard it once and you’ll hear it again: CoolSculpting is a pain-free procedure. During the procedure itself you might feel a little bit uncomfortable as the machine works to freeze your cells but you likely won’t feel a thing. The benefit to having a pain free procedure, other than not experiencing any sort of pain, is that you’ll be able to go back to work or your daily activities directly after the procedure— a win, win for everyone.

CoolSculpting Vs. Liposuction

It can be hard to lose weight, especially that stubborn fat around your middle section or upper thighs. If it seems like no matter how many calories you are cutting and no matter how many days you workout a week, you still can’t get rid of that stubborn fat, it’s time to take matters into your own hands— or into the hands of Fix Laser & Skin Center— in order to get rid of that stubborn fat once and for all. As two common treatments available on the plastic surgery market, both CoolSculpting and liposuction have benefits. Read on to learn more.

CoolSculpting as a liposuction alternative!

CoolSculptingOne of the best parts about CoolSculpting is that it’s a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime at all. Meaning that if you’re a busy mom or career lady who doesn’t have time to sit in bed and recover for a week or two, then this is the right procedure for you. By literally freezing your fat away, CoolSculpting works to target your fat cells and give you back the body you once had or have always desired. Once your fat cells are frozen, they will then slough off after a few months— exposing your slimmer self.

Liposuction

Although liposuction is an invasive procedure that does require an ample amount of recovery time, it also gives patients almost instantaneous results. By making small incisions throughout your body, the plastic surgeon will then go under your skin with a camera device in order to fully assess your fat cells and skin. During this time, the surgeon will then scrape away any excess fat that has built up and will suction it away with a vacuum like tool. Once you are stitched up and out of recovery, you will be safe to go home. However, you will want to rest in bed for at least a few days as your body recovers from surgery and reheals itself.

In addition to exercise and a healthy diet, both liposuction and CoolSculpting are great procedures to help rid patients of stubborn fat. If you are interested in learning more about these procedures or if you’d like to schedule an appointment, contact Fix Laser & Skin Center today!

The Art of CoolSculpting

Body SculptingYou can sculpt clay, you can sculpt pottery, and you can even sculpt your body. However, many individuals suffer with weight loss issues because no matter how hard they try, they just can’t seem to get rid of areas on their body that hold onto stubborn fat. If you are one of those individuals who is consistently hitting the gym and watching what you eat, but you still have areas on your body that you can’t seem to shed extra fat, then it’s time for you to consider the art of CoolSculpting.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA approved procedure that uses a special device to go in and freeze the fat cells in the targeted area in your body. After a month or two, these fat cells slough off and you will notice a more recognizably slimmer and more toned you.

Is It Painful?

Due to its non-invasive nature, CoolSculpting isn’t a painful procedure and doesn’t require any sort of recovery time. With sessions that typically last an hour, you can expect to feel maybe a bit uncomfortable during the procedure but it should not be painful at all.

How Does It Compare to Liposuction?

Over twenty years ago, it seemed like the only form of weightloss surgery that was available to patients was liposuction. And although liposuction is still a great surgery for the correct individuals, procedures like CoolSculpting are giving liposuction a run for its money. As mentioned above, one of the biggest perks of CoolSculpting is that it is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any recovery time. However, the results do take a little longer to see. Whereas, liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure, that will leave you out of commission for a few weeks, but you will notice results a lot faster.

If you or a loved one are interested in learning more about the art and benefits of CoolSculpting, contact our office today! One of our experts will gladly schedule a consultation with you in order to determine if CoolSculpting is the right procedure for you and your body.
