Some of us, alright most of us, have fat cells stored somewhere in our body that we wish we could sing away with a heartfelt rendition of "Let it Go."
No matter what body type we are graced with - skinny, tall, curvy, petite - or how hard we try to work it off, the midsection and thighs seem to hold on tight to excess fat cells. Until now, the primary method of treating unwanted fat deposits has been liposuction. However, liposuction can be a fairly intense procedure that is still technically surgery. But as the guests of the Aesthetic Suite’s CoolSculpting® event learned, there is now a fresher and frosty treatment option to body sculpting that takes less time than watching the movie Frozen. Using technology that rivals Queen Elsa's 'cryokinetic' powers, CoolSculpting freezes and permanently reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas.
Annette Pennington, the Aesthetic Suite’s aesthetician and skin care specialist, unveiled the practice’s new CoolSculpting non-surgical fat reduction technology to a captive audience curious about this exciting technology and its benefits towards a tighter physique. Guests were treated to individual consultations and demonstrations. Dr. Feingold also stopped in to inform the guests about the different applications and outstanding results, which he believes rivals that of liposuction.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body sculpting treatment that is supremely convenient and offers lasting results. Using a special cooling technology (a.k.a. Cryolipolysis), CoolSculpting targets and destroys fat cells. This simple therapy is so comfortable patients can relax, read, or sleep. The results of CoolSculpting become more evident in the first months after treatment as the body naturally flushes out the fat cells, permanently. The fat freezing procedure is available in more than 70 countries and is FDA cleared for treatment of the love handles (flank), abdomen, and thighs.
If you’re wondering if you might be a candidate for this cool procedure, email Annette Pennington, and remember, “If you can squeeze it, we can freeze it.”
Whether it is liposuction or CoolSculpting, it is important to note that neither is intended as a weight-loss treatment; rather, the procedures can help permanently remove fat cells from areas of the body where they have accumulated, helping to create a healthier-looking, more youthful profile. Whether or not you weigh less, you'll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better.
