What is CoolSculpting?
Excess fat deposits and uneven body contours are a common problem today due to sedentary lifestyles and other factors. If the fat pockets are stubborn, it may not be possible to reduce these fats and improve the physical appearance with diet and exercise. Patients have various options available in such cases, including cosmetic surgery, laser based treatments, innovative RF and ultrasound techniques, and a revolutionary non-surgical procedure called CoolSculpting.
Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa has the necessary expertise and experience to provide CoolSculpting treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and surrounding communities. CoolSculpting radically differentiates itself from all surgical and heat-based procedures that involve fat reduction by way of melting excess fat deposits with laser, ultrasound or radio frequency based energy. CoolSculpting is based on a unique cooling process that freezes unwanted fat cells in a targeted area, without affecting the skin surface or healthy cells.
Fat cells in the body are sensitive to cold and cannot sustain freezing for a long time. A focused treatment of these cells with the cooling technology of CoolSculpting enables the disintegration of these unwanted cells. Once these cells start losing their life, they gradually get removed from the body in a natural, biocompatible manner. That makes CoolSculping a safe and effective procedure that does not involve any incisions, injections, heat or laser energy.
The fat freezing technology of CoolSculpting is entirely safe and the treatment does not result in any collateral damage of surrounding healthy tissue. Fiala Aesthetics med spa recommends this procedure to patients who are looking for a comfortable, painless, and simple procedure to reduce unwanted fats.
Unlike surgery, lasers or sonic waves, CoolSculpting does not involve aggressive techniques such as extraction, burning or shattering of the targeted cells. Instead of forcing instant destruction of fat cells with intensive treatment, CoolSculpting acts slowly and provides safe, healthy, and natural looking results.
FDA has cleared CoolSculpting as a fat reduction treatment, and many cosmetic surgeons and aesthetic experts around the world recommend this treatment to patients who are unwilling to opt for surgery. The treatment process begins when the doctor or esthetician applies a special gel on the marked area of the body that will receive the treatment.
This gel protects the outer surface of the skin against the cold. The entire procedure is usually completed in less than an hour. The procedure is comfortable, involves no anesthesia, and the patient may read a book or watch TV or go to sleep during the procedure. More effective results in terms of removal of unwanted fat cells may be achieved in more than one session, depending on the span of areas to be treated.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq does not cause any harm to the healthy cells in the outer skin, and only the underlying targeted fat cells are impacted. Invasive instruments such as needles, surgeon’s scalpel and suction hoses do not have any role to play in this treatment. Patients with low pain tolerance and busy mothers and working people who are looking for a procedure with no downtime may be good candidates for this treatment
Most patients can return to work immediately after the procedure, and a busy individual can also fit the treatment sessions into his or her daily routine. Scars and marks on the skin commonly occur with surgical and other aggressive fat reduction techniques. But with CoolSculpting, scars are avoided completely, which is a major benefit for a lot of patients.
Recovery and Results
Recovery after a session of CoolSculpting is usually immediate, and the patient can resume regular physical activity. Results are effective and more natural looking. With the first treatment session itself the patient is likely to experience a significant reduction in unwanted fats, improvement in body contours and a more pleasing overall appearance.
Results continue to improve over a period of several months as the frozen fat cells disintegrate gradually and get eliminated from the body in a natural process. Patients who may need more extensive treatment can opt for multiple sessions from a professionally managed medical spa such as Fiala Aesthetics serving Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and other Central Florida areas.
