3 Things You Should Know About CoolSculpting

After months in the gym and lots of time spent food prepping, are you still having trouble shaking that area of stubborn fat? At BOYD, we offer a breakthrough nonsurgical body sculpting option to help you achieve the body you want. CoolSculpting is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical body contouring procedure that uses freezing temperatures to eliminate fat. Not only is this treatment non-invasive, but it also requires zero downtime! Since CoolSculpting is a relatively new development, there are many questions surrounding the procedure, but here are three things you need to know.

It Doesn’t Hurt

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling technology to eliminate fat cells. Once the tissue drops to a certain temperature the skin will start to feel numb, and you won’t notice the gentle suction from the machine. The gentle freezing and suction work to eliminate stubborn fat cells permanently, so you can finally say goodbye to those problem areas.

It’s for More Than Just Thighs & Abs

Many individuals can benefit from CoolSculpting since it can be used to treat various areas of the body, but many patients assume that it is only for the mid-section and thighs. However, CoolSculpting can treat the flanks, abdomen, and inner and outer thighs. Early this year, it was also cleared to treat the upper arms (the dreaded bra fat). As an added bonus, it can be used to treat fat under the chin for a slimmer chin and neck silhouette.

Results Keep Coming & Improving

Something many prospective patients don’t realize is that final results continue to develop over the next several months. CoolSculpting has also updated its technology and now boasts a quicker treatment time, with treatments lasting 35 minutes per area and a 45% improvement in comfort for an optimal treatment experience. Over time, the body will naturally eliminate dead fat cells for long-lasting results.

Tighter Skin & Fat Loss, Without the Surgery

When you think of fat loss or tightening loose skin, what comes to mind? Healthy foods, hours of sweaty gym time, or surgery? With medical advances of today, doctors have found solutions to help you achieve your desired contour without surgical downtime, or an overly-intense gym routine.

However, to get the perfect body contour you’ve been dreaming of, you may need to combine different methods to achieve your desired results. Read on to learn about some options available to eliminate stubborn fat and tighten loose skin.

Fat Loss with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is recommended for patients who are in fairly good shape, but can’t seem to lose fat in specific areas. Fat is eliminated in this process by controlled cooling. The procedure targets fat cells deep under the skin where they freeze and then die. Your body then naturally eliminates the dead cells— for good!

Tighter Skin with Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze can be used to firm up any area of your body that has lax skin. The procedure combines radio frequency and a magnetic pulse to produce heat under the skin’s surface. The skin will then create more collagen to heal these areas, therefore tightening the skin.

After CoolSculpting, we find that patients have only addressed one area of concern— fat loss! By combining both of these methods, the team at BOYD Beauty can create the body contour that you’ve always dreamed of by also removing loose skin to optimize your results. Don’t decide between just fat removal or tightening skin; CoolSculpting and Venus Freeze can be used in tandem to give you flatter, better results.
