With our busy schedules, few of us can afford to devote hours to physical fitness, but even if we do, we can still have pockets of unsightly fat that are completely resistant to our efforts.
Liposuction was the old way of treating this areas, but not only is it expensive, it also carries risks such as any surgical procedure might do.
That’s where CoolSculpting comes in. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, risk free treatment with no downtime that melts fat away naturally. Fat cells are frozen with the CoolSculpting device, painlessly, and then eliminated by the body’s natural processes.
Protective gel is placed on the area and then the device is utilized to freeze the fat cells, while the skin and muscles remain undamaged. The most amazing part of CoolSculpting is that those cells die off and leave the body permanently. Generally, when a person gains or loses weight, the fat cells either expand or contract, but they remain in the body. In other words, with CoolSculpting the fat cells that were frozen will never return.
Patients will see improvements within three weeks, though it can take up to three months to see the full results, which can be dramatic.
CoolSculpting can be used on the abdomen, flanks, inner or outer thighs, chin, and upper arms.
However, CoolSculpting cannot improve the quality of skin. When we are older, our skin doesn’t bounce back as quickly after weight loss. That’s where Venus Legacy, the fire portion of the treatment comes in. Venus Legacy is a device that delivers radio frequencies is used to heat the collagen below the skin, causing it to tighten and then regenerate. Venus is often used to treat cellulite eliminating the dimples found on the thighs and buttocks, smoothing skin and tightening sagging.
After both treatments are applied, you will experience fat reduction and the skin, where the fat loss occurred, will be firm and not saggy.
Come in for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Vulich, who will explain both procedures in depth and devise an individualized treatment protocol specifically for you, no matter where your problem areas may be occurring. Do remember that CoolSculpting and Venus Legacy aren’t a short cut to weight loss if you are obese.
