Charleston patients looking to get rid of excess fat or improve their skin’s appearance can now be aided by some of the latest advances in the industry.
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
O'Neill Plastic Surgery has announced that it is now offering CoolSculpting and IPL treatments to its patients. CoolSculpting can help patients reduce stubborn body fat while IPL treatments offer patients a way to improve the texture and appearance of their skin. These non-invasive treatments require little recovery and downtime.
CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis or cryogenic lipolysis, is an innovative and non-invasive alternative to liposuction and is popular with patients who suffer from unwanted fat in areas that are difficult to address even after much dieting and exercise. Since fat cells are more easily damaged by freezing than skin cells, the process allows for fat to be removed without scarring or other types of visible skin damage.
For improving the health of a patient's skin, IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments are used. These can target certain areas of the skin and can improve color, correct sun damage and uneven pigment, as well as get rid of facial vessels. By breaking down the outer layer of scarred tissue, it triggers the body’s healing abilities to create new tissues to improve skin texture, decrease redness, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer our patients these new treatments,” said Dr. Patrick O'Neill, surgeon and founder of O'Neill Plastic Surgery. “Charleston patients looking to get rid of excess fat or improve their skin’s appearance can now be aided by some of the latest advances in the industry. They are truly state of the art!”
For CoolSculpting, most patients require a few treatments and results typically begin to appear after three weeks, with significant results appearing after three to four months. IPL treatments take approximately 30 minutes and anywhere between three and five sessions are needed to achieve optimal results. Both types of treatments require no downtime, and most patients are able to return to their normal routine the same day they receive treatment.
