Coolsculpting

Coolsculpting is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive procedure that helps contour your body by reducing fat cells in the targeted area. The procedure works by a cooling system that gently and effectively targets the fat cells underneath the surface of the skin. Over time the cells die due to the “freezing of the fat” and your body naturally eliminates the cells. Since this procedure is non-surgical there is no downtime making it very easy to return to normal activities immediately. The results are proven, noticeable and long lasting.

The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teen years.  Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells but it does change the size of the fat cells.  After diet and weight loss, the fat cells get smaller but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained the cells get bigger. This procedure can help women and men get rid of stubborn bulges of fat that diet and exercise cannot get rid of.  The number of fat cells is reduced by about 20% to 25% in the treated area.  This procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese.  The most common areas treated are the abdomen, flanks/sides, inner and outer thighs.  Other areas treated are the lower thigh/knee area, bra fat, back fat and underneath your buttocks (aka banana roll).

The first step is to schedule a complimentary one on one consultation with one of our aestheticians who was specially trained in the Coolsculpting procedure.   During your consultation, your whole body will be analyzed from different angles and then focus will be directed to the specific areas you want to eliminate the fat. With different applicators to choose from a customized treatment plan will be designed for you. It may take as little as one visit to achieve your goals, although more than on Coolsculpting treatment may be needed to complete your plan during that visit. Since we have two systems we may be able to treat two areas at one time reducing the amount of time you spend in the office.  During the actual treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area.    While the device is attached you can read a book, watch TV, check emails or take a nap. For the first five minutes, you will feel intense cold but it subsides as the area numbs.  You may also feel slight pulling, tugging or mild pinching in the treated area since a vacuum is used to help draw the fat into the applicator cup.  After the applicator is removed a brief two-minute massage in performed on the area treated.

After your treatment, we ask you to return to the office in 3-4 weeks to see how you are progressing.  You may see results as early as three weeks but the most dramatic results are usually seen at 3 months following the treatment. At that time we ask you to come back in to take pictures, review your results and discuss additional treatments. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4-6 months after treatment.

The cost of this procedure varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed and your ultimate goals.  Most clients opt to receive multiple treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals. We do accept Care Credit which offers multiple financing options that allow clients to proceed with Coolsculpting and make payments over time with 0% interest.

Velashape

Velashape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that helps to contour skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Velashape technology combines infrared light, bipolar radio frequency energy, and vacuum, which causes deep heating to fall cells. This treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. After treatments patients noticed a gradual smoothing of the skins surface and a noticeable reduction of cellulite. Over time you will notice a smaller circumference throughout the treated area.  Best results will be seen at about 10 weeks.

The most common areas treated are the abdomen, flanks and behind the legs.  If you have other areas you would like addressed we recommend discussing with our aestheticians during your assessment. Initially 3-6 treatments are recommended to begin your transformation.  It is recommended to schedule periodic treatments to maintain your desired results. Like with all fat reducing treatments we recommend maintaining a healthy balanced diet and exercise routine. We recommend a free assessment to first make sure you are an ideal candidate for this service.  If you are a candidate a treatment plan and pricing will be discussed at that time. VelaShape is not painful and has been describes as feeling like a warm, deep tissue massage.  Since it uses targeted heat, it is normal to feel a warm sensation for several hours after treatment. For some individuals the area may appear to be pink as well, which subsides after a few hours.
