You’ve dieted and exercised and done all that you know to do…yet you still have excess fat around your waist that refuses go away. Does this sound like you?
Here in my practice, we have been performing the Coolsculpting treatment for quite some time now and have seen excellent results. If you’re not familiar with Coolsculpting, it’s a fantastic way to permanently eliminate fat cells in what we would call our ‘problem areas’, without having to do any type of invasive procedure or surgery.
I’m always striving to find new and better ways to treat our patients for the best possible results. When it comes to our aesthetic treatments, my goal is to help you look and feel your absolute best. There have been some recent advances in the way that the stomach area is treated with Coolsculpting that I’m very excited about. This new technique allows for maximum circumferential reduction of the waist line.
How does Coolsculpting Work?
Coolsculpting literally uses a cooling mechanism to freeze the fat cells in the area we’re treating, thus sculpting the area of stubborn fat and transforming it. When the fat cells are frozen, they will begin to crystallize and naturally pass through your body and are then eliminated. The process takes a few weeks to complete, but the results are tremendous. We have seen up to 50% reduction in the fat layer of the areas treated in my office. Coolsculpting is FDA-cleared, patented treatment and was developed by Harvard scientists who were studying ‘Cryolipolysis’, which is the action of freezing fat cells underneath the skin.
New Technique: The Waistline Whittler
So, what does the new technique involve? Generally, the entire stomach area would be treated 2 times, typically 4 weeks apart. For most patients this would include both the upper and lower abdominal area. We would also treat the love handle area, otherwise known as the lower flank area as well. By combining these areas, we can address excess fat all the way around the waistline. And by doing two treatments, we greatly increase efficacy. Historically, most patients in my practice experience a significant improvement of their results by having an area treated a second time.
The results we’ve seen with this new technique have been excellent. I’m so pleased to offer a treatment that can eliminate fat from those stubborn areas while sparing my patients from having to go through an invasive procedure or surgery and all the risks that can come along with it.
