At BodySculpt San Diego we are always looking to provide the most innovative techniques and procedures for our patients. One of the newest and most exciting topics across the country including Europe is CoolSculpting® Elite. CoolSculpting® Elite is not a completely new concept to doctors. They discovered this fat freezing process called cryolipolysis. When young children ate a lot of ice pops and experienced fat degradation in their cheeks. “Fat is more temperature sensitive than your skin,” explains Plastic Surgeon and UCLA professor Jason Roostaeian. “It goes through the cell death process before your skin does.”
This safe and effective treatment has become so popular due to its effective and long term results! CoolSculpting® Elite is the only FDA approved device in the US to use cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells away. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that permanently removes fat cells from the body with little to no discomfort and no down time. This fat freezing technique targets stubborn fat cells that are hard to get rid of through exercise and diet. After fat cells die, they are gradually excreted through your waste. After fat cells are cleansed naturally from your system almost 1.5 to 2 inches of fat can be removed from your waist, leaving you with a more sculpted body and a confidence boost. In fact this procedure is so easy to get through most of our patients sit reclined for up to two hours or more while reading a book or watching Netflix while the CoolSculpting® Elite goes to work. This process can easily kill up to 25% of fat cells in each treatment area. Before the treatment each area to be treated is mapped out and marked on the body followed by a gel pad being placed on the skin. The CoolSculpting® handpiece then draws tissue up into the device while using cooling plates to lower the temperature and destroy fat cells. The number of treatments needed varies depending on the amount of volume and the desired result. This will be discussed during the consultation with Nicole Rothrock, your CoolSculpting® Pro!
BodySculpt San Diego is thrilled to have the latest innovation in Coolsculpting technology, the CoolSculpting® Elite. Coolsculpting® has been used in our office for years with great success, but CoolSculpting® Elite is a more advanced treatment that offers excellent results while safer, more comfortable and delivers faster and better results. We are able to treat many different areas including abdomen, flanks (love handles), under the neck (double chin), back, bra area, inner and outer thighs, above the knee and the male chest. Not only are we able to treat several areas, CoolSculpting® Elite now features two applicators so patients can choose to treat two areas of the body in one session. Not only does this save time and speed up fat removal, but patients can also rely on more symmetrical results by treating both sides of the body simultaneously. Coolsculpting is performed on an increasing number of believers who are choosing this fat reduction method over surgical and laser procedures. This FDA approved non-invasive treatment is pain free and does not require hospitalization or post operative care. With no down time patients can go back to regular activities like going to the gym or working in their garden. The results are long lasting and our patients see their results in approximately one month. Full results will be appreciated usually over the course of about three to six months post treatment. Every treatment is customized to each individual’s unique physique. If you’re curious about CoolSculpting® Elite, we would love to meet with you and give you a personalized consultation to begin your journey to a more sculpted body.
