Isolated areas of fat are extremely common, and as we age, may begin to appear more frequently. Unfortunately, some stubborn areas of fat are almost impossible to eliminate, even with a strict diet, routine exercise, and healthy lifestyle. Today, Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique brings patients an exciting, noninvasive method for eliminating frustrating fat with CoolSculpting. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration, CoolSculpting is a safe method for reducing unwanted bulges of fatty tissue without surgery.
CoolSculpting Can Improve:
- Abdomen (Muffin Top)
- Flanks (Love Handles)
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Lower Back
- Upper Arms
- Submental Fat (Double Chin)
At Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique, we understand not everyone is ready for the recovery and cost commitment associated with traditional liposuction. To meet our patient’s nonsurgical fat reduction needs, we are one of the few practices to offer Dual Sculpting, or two CoolSculpting machines for twice the results – in the half the time.
The ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting provides an excellent alternative to liposuction for almost anyone struggling with isolated pockets of fat, resistant to exercise and diet. Those looking to augment or improve the results from previous surgical procedures, such as a tummy tuck or liposuction, can also benefit from CoolSculpting. An ideal patient will be in good health and close to their ideal body weight. Potential candidates should understand the CoolSculpting process and have realistic expectations for their final results.
Prior to scheduling a CoolSculpting session, a free consultation will be arranged at Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique. At this time, the provider will perform a brief physical examination and review the patient’s medical history. The CoolSculpting process will be explained in detail, as well as what to expect from the recovery and potential complications. While CoolSculpting is not for everyone, the experts at Mirror Mirror can determine the best fat elimination technique for you. Finally, a personalized treatment plan will be created with a goal of achieving the desired, long-term results.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
CoolSculpting is an in-office treatment, taking less than an hour to perform. After a personalized consultation appointment, the target area will be determined. Once the patient is comfortably positioned in a private treatment room, a cooling gel will be placed on the skin. Next the CoolSculpting applicators will be placed along the targeted skin, gently vacuuming the tissue upwards.
No anesthesia is necessary during CoolSculpting, because as the applicator temperatures slowly fall, the treatment area will become numb. While patients may note a gentle pulling sensation, then a quick cooling, this will quickly fade. The treatment is comfortable enough that patients can read, talk on their phone, watch our complimentary Netflix, or simply rest until their CoolSculpting session is complete.
CoolSculpting’s Unique Family of Applicators
CoolSculpting delivers optimal fat reduction results using a range of specialized applicators. Different handpieces mean each treatment is custom-tailored for the individual patient’s body. While use of the traditional CoolSculpting applicators can provide extensive improvement in just 60 minutes, the CoolAdvantage handpiece cuts treatment time to only 35 minutes.
CoolSculpting’s streamlined, 3-in-1 applicator provides extensive results in a variety of areas:
- CoolFit Advantage is designed for vertical areas of fatty tissue, such as that along the inner thighs.
- CoolCore Advantage is ideal for treating the rounded contours of the abdomen.
- CoolCurve+ Advantage is the choice applicator for treating the flanks.
- CoolSmooth is the ideal applicator for treating the outer thighs.
The CoolMini applicator is one of CoolSculpting’s newest, specialized applicators. Designed specifically to target small, hard-to-reach areas of fat, the CoolMini can successfully reduce submental fat under the chin, along the bra line and under the arm, as well as above the knee.
Recovery and Results
CoolSculpting does not require any incisions, injections, or sutures, so the recovery is fast and easy. Little to no downtime is necessary. Patients can head back to work, school, or family responsibilities right away, without restrictions.
While the benefits of CoolSculpting are not immediate, some patients will begin to notice a decrease in fatty tissue in as little as three weeks. As the body begins to eliminate the damaged fat cells, improvements will slowly start to appear. In three to four months, full results from a CoolSculpting treatment can be seen. Patients can expect from 20-25% reduction in fat with the first treatment. For even greater results, a second CoolSculpting session can be scheduled.
Side-effects of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA as a safe method for eliminating isolated areas of fat without surgery. Side-effects of the treatment are extremely mild, but may include redness, tenderness, bruising, and itching. These will resolve over the first one to two weeks. As the treatment does not require any incisions, more serious complications from CoolSculpting, such as scarring, are extremely rare.
