If, like many others, you’ve diligently counted your calories and hit the gym or yoga class religiously, but you’re still not satisfied, there’s a solution. Here at Dr. Jay’s Medi Spa in Tustin, California, we’re pleased to offer a state-of-the-art technology called Coolsculpting®, which has been cleared by the FDA as a non-surgical, fat-reduction treatment.
If you want to explore how this system can help give you the boost you need to achieve the body of your dreams, read on.
A cold burn
While it may seem counterintuitive to use cooler temps to “burn up” fat cells, extremely cold temperatures can have much the same effect as hot ones. Your body’s cells can only withstand so much fluctuation in temperature—when the mercury rises or falls too far in either direction, your cells can’t survive.
With Coolsculpting, the process is referred to as Cryolipolysis®. Using this method, we’re able to crystalize, or freeze, your fat cells, causing them to die.
Fat, by the numbers
Did you know that the number of fat cells in your body stays relatively the same throughout your life? When you gain or lose weight, your existing fat cells grow and shrink. Coolscupting targets and destroys your fat cells, and they don’t come back.
From head to toe
We all know how small those bathing suits are, which means there may be a lot of ground to cover. Luckily, Coolsculpting is up to the task. We can treat a number of different areas, including your abdomen, thighs, flanks, back, arms, and even under your chin.
Without a trace
It used to be that when you wanted to tackle stubborn pockets of fat through medical intervention, your only option was liposuction. While effective, liposuction is also an invasive procedure that carries downtime and a risk of infection with it.
Coolsculpting is a noninvasive procedure that doesn’t cause any damage to the surface of your skin. The cooling energy travels harmlessly through your skin in order to reach your fat cells below.
In and out
One of the biggest benefits of the Coolsculpting therapy is that one treatment only takes 30-60 minutes, and you can get right back to your normal routine immediately after. In fact, since the procedure is harmless (you may feel a little chilly), you can even use this time to read or work on your laptop.
Wait for it
The question we’re asked most frequently is, “When will I see results?” There’s no good answer to this because your results are gradual. After your treatment, your body sets to work to flush out the destroyed fat cells through its lymphatic system. This is a process that takes time, so you can expect to see the effects build, with optimal results three to six months after your visit with us.
More than one?
If you’re wondering about how many treatments you’ll need, the only way to know for sure is to come in for a consultation. When you do, one of our experts reviews the areas you want to target and comes up with an appropriate treatment plan. If you only want to treat one area, we’re often able to do this in just one visit. If you want multiple areas of fat treated, you may have to come in more than once.
As amazing as the Coolsculpting technology is, we caution you not to regard it as a weight loss option. Coolsculpting is designed to reshape and recontour your body by targeting deposits of fat. If you’re at, or near, your weight goal, we can provide the finishing touches on your efforts, giving you the body you were aiming for in the first place.
