In some cases, CoolSculpting has allowed us to successfully treat areas and get results that may not have been possible with liposuction.
Toronto (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
In the era of social media and constant photo sharing, a smooth and sculpted body seems to be more desirable than ever. More people are exploring cosmetic procedures to help them achieve their body shaping goals, but the downtime associated with liposuction isn’t always possible in today’s non-stop world. The good news is that non invasive treatments and technology have improved by leaps and bounds, making cosmetic body shaping and sculpting possible for those of us who aren’t willing to go under the knife.
One of the most effective non surgical treatments being used to reduce unwanted fat on the body is CoolSculpting®, sometimes referred to as the “fat freezing” treatment. CoolSculpting is a totally non invasive fat reduction procedure that uses cooling technology to effectively kill and eliminate unwanted fat cells from the body. During the procedure, an applicator is placed on the treatment area or “fat bulge” for a 60 minute cycle of controlled cooling. The temperature selectively targets and destroys fat cells, which are gradually eliminated over the course of 4 to 6 weeks. Average fat reduction from one CoolSculpting cycle is 25% of the treated area.
“The results we have seen in patients who have undergone this treatment have been very impressive,” reports renowned cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Trevor Born. “In some cases, CoolSculpting has allowed us to successfully treat areas and get results that may not have been possible with liposuction.”
In fact, CoolSculpting has evolved over the years from a treatment solely meant to reduce fat on the abdomen, to a procedure that can address fat pockets on the flanks, back, upper back or “bra bulge,” and even inner thighs. This increased ability to maneuver and position the CoolSculpting applicator has given providers the capacity to treat the body holistically, instead of being limited to a single area. For this reason, Dr. Born and TMB Cosmetic Surgery are adopting CoolSculpting’s new best practice of “Treatment to Transformation.” This new protocol is a more comprehensive approach that aims to optimize results with patient-specific placement of the applicator and treatment sessions.
“With Treatment to Transformation, it’s no longer about one area, one applicator, one cycle,” explains Dr. Born. “We look at the individual and design a multi-faceted treatment plan in order to get the maximum amount of fat reduction, and most aesthetically pleasing body contour.”
CoolSculpting is an exciting option for those patients who wish to re-shape and transform their body with no downtime and no surgery. Those interested in the procedure should make sure to seek out an experienced provider that bears the “CoolSculpting Certified Practice” symbol.
