Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to "spot reduce." Diet and exercise affects the whole body, rather than targeting specific fat deposits. If you have attempted to get rid of unwanted fat through diet and exercise, you have likely struggled with certain areas, such as abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, or back fat. Our Beverly Hills CoolSculpting procedure uses technology that makes it possible to get rid of these unwanted fat deposits forever – without invasive surgery.
Cryolipolysis (killing fat cells by controlled cooling) is one of the most recently released, advanced methods for fat reduction. CoolSculpting technology gives people the opportunity to improve on nature, and create a fitter, firmer body, without unsightly fat. This technology allows specifically targeted areas of fat to be removed forever.
Cryolipolysis is the science behind the revolutionary process known exclusively as CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved treatment for fat deposits under the chin, on thighs, abdomen and flanks, as well as for back fat, upper arms and under the buttocks. It is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that employs scientifically-controlled cooling to target and remove fat cells. CoolSculpting is one of the most advanced forms of non-invasive body contouring available.
CoolSculpting has been the subject of years of research and testing in the development of a process that targets fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. It safely delivers precision temperatures to gently reduce fat cells. The cells are crystallized, and naturally absorbed by your body and then processed out of the body. CoolSculpting is a safe and proven technology.
There have been over 5,500 clinical trials and to date, about four million procedures have been performed worldwide. During your CoolSculpting procedure you will recline in a comfortable chair while a small gel pad and applicator is placed on the area to be treated. A strong suction from a separate cup pulls the fat tissue beneath your skin to the CoolSculpting paddles. During your Los Angeles CoolSculpting procedure, you can relax and read, listen to music, or simply rest comfortably.
For many years, body contouring has been the most in-demand cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the USA. As an effective procedure for body contouring and an alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting offers impressive results in removing resistive fat deposits without the need for surgery.
Although liposuction is an effective removal of excess adipose tissue (used for the storing of fat), it has the drawback of being an invasive procedure involving some risk. Liposuction requires incisions, and involves significant post-operative swelling. While modern lipo treatments are generally safe and effective and may be needed in some cases, CoolScupting is an effective, non-invasive alternative treatment.
Our bodies maintain a fixed number of fat cells as we enter adulthood. When you lose weight, fat cells reduce in size, but remain. When losing or gaining weight, the size of the fat cells shrinks or grows, but the number of cells remains constant. CoolSculpting is a procedure that effectively reduces fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.
A two-year study involving 528 patients concluded that when the treatment plan is correct and the procedure applied by a skilled professional, with multiple treatments when necessary, cryolipolysis produces results comparable to liposuction. When considering the additional discomfort and recovery time associated with liposuction, it is easy to see how CoolSculpting has now become one of the most popular body sculpting treatments available.
Each treatment can last from 35 to 60 minutes, and more than one treatment can be performed in one appointment. The Los Angeles CoolSculpting professional that's treating you at Nassif Medspa will establish a custom- tailored treatment plan to help you reduce fat cells, and begin your journey to a slimmer, more sculpted body.
Over the first few minutes of your CoolSculpting treatment you will feel intense cold. However, your body quickly numbs and the sensation disappears. The applicator applies suction, and you will experience a pulling sensation which is not unpleasant. Afterwards there may be some tingling as we massage the treated area. Most patients find it easy to relax and read, listen to music, or simply rest during the procedure.
Because of the cycle of fat cell freezing, cell death, cell disintegration, and your metabolism, results can take up to three weeks or more to begin to show. The most significant results should show after two to three months, and your body will continue to process the targeted fat cells for up to six months. The results are often truly remarkable.
Most patients find a new motivation to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle now that the unwanted fat has been reduced. The aesthetic effect of CoolSculpting is a great inspiration to maintain an ideal weight through a healthy diet and a regular exercise program. However, if you do gain weight after CoolSculpting, the fat will typically be more evenly distributed over your body, rather than collecting in the treated areas. The fat cannot collect in the area, as the number of fat cells has been reduced through the treatment.
