Henderson, Nevada (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
If holiday party clothes still show stubborn lumps and bumps that just won’t go away, no matter the amount of dieting and exercise, CoolSculpting® is a way to eliminate them without surgery, and a lucky Las Vegas area resident is about to win a treatment for free.
Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates, one of the area’s premier providers of the FDA-cleared fat-reducing procedure, is inviting entries into a sweepstakes to win a free CoolSculpting treatment at its Henderson, Nevada location.
The grand prize is a “Mommy Makeover” CoolSculpting package valued at $2,100. The package includes three treatment areas: the abdomen and two “love handles”.
To enter the contest, visit the Hankins & Sohn Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/PlasticSurgeryLasVegas , click “Like” and follow the entry instructions. Entrants must be able to complete a consultation and one-hour treatment at the company’s facilities in Henderson, Nev.
Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body thereby inducing a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Based on science developed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass., in the United States, this breakthrough is based on a vast body of research that demonstrates that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, painlessly and permanently destroyed. Starting several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink and disappear. The body proceeds to naturally and gradually eliminate the cooled fat cells, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
Unlike many other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area thereby specifically targeting fat. Treatments last between one to two hours. Patients can have additional procedures for more pronounced effects if they desire. On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated area, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.
