Do you long for the slimmer body you once had? There weren’t so many places that fell to gravity, and you had the confidence of knowing you looked good. While wishing won’t bring back the body of your youth, you can reclaim that confidence with noninvasive CoolSculpting. And unlike the more invasive procedure of liposuction, CoolSculpting carries few risks while delivering amazing results.
At Tahoe Women’s Care, we want to help you live your best life and feel good about your body. Dr. Gary Willen offers comprehensive gynecological care along with many aesthetic services, including CoolSculpting body contouring.
How CoolSculpting works
CoolSculpting gets rid of fat cells in stubborn-to-tone areas of your body, and it works through a process known as cryolipolysis to destroy fat with cold temperatures. Using a special tool, our CoolSculpting technician freezes the fat cells in the designated area. As the fat cells break down, your body eliminates them naturally, flushing them out over time through natural processes.
Most people prefer the results they get with CoolSculpting over taking risks with traditional liposuction, which is invasive. CoolSculpting reduces fat cells in the treatment area by 20-25%. Each CoolSculpting session will take 35-60 minutes. You’ll see results in as little as 3 weeks, but full results can take up to 2 months.
The CoolSculpting technology in no way takes the place of regular diet and exercise, and it’s not a treatment for obesity. It works best on small deposits of excess fat that don’t go away with diet and exercise alone. Although highly successful in eliminating pockets of fat, CoolSculpting is a tool to enhance your already-fit physique.
3 reasons to choose CoolSculpting
When the FDA cleared the CoolSculpting procedure in 2010 for removal of fat-pockets that form “love handles”, a happy public began singing the praises of this wonderful technology. In subsequent years, CoolSculpting gained clearance for treatment of other areas of stubborn fat on the body.
To date, over seven million CoolSculpting procedures have been done worldwide.
Here are three reasons for CoolSculpting’s popularity:
- CoolSculpting is an easy, comfortable process
With CoolSculpting, there’s no downtime, and the entire process is actually quite comfortable. Many patients pass their CoolSculpting session by reading, catching up on email, or simply enjoying the time away from an otherwise demanding day. There’s nothing you need to do to prepare, other than loading up your e-reader. You can return to work or your normal daily routine right after your session at Tahoe Women’s Care.
- There’s no anesthesia and no scarring with CoolSculpting
Because CoolSculpting is so comfortably noninvasive there’s no need for sedation, therefore you don’t need monitoring or to spend time in recovery. No anesthesia means you can go about your day, both before and after CoolSculpting. Return to work or your daily routine, as you like. Traditional liposuction typically requires anesthesia, and can cause scarring.
- CoolSculpting successfully treats many areas
There are several areas of the body which respond effectively to CoolSculpting. They are:
- Flanks, aka “love handles”
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Back and bra fat
- Fat under the buttocks
- Double chin
