While liposuction has dominated the fat removal industry for decades, recently, new technologies have allowed us to be able to provide non-surgical, non-invasive treatments for less cost and a shorter recovery time.
In the 21st century, many men and women are opting for non-surgical fat removal methods to treat different areas of their body. If you’re living a healthy lifestyle, but still experiencing trouble areas of the body with stubborn fat, you may want to consider fat freezing in Lone Tree using CoolSculpting.
What is fat freezing in Lone Tree?
Fat freezing in Lone Tree, also known as Cryolipolysis, is a specific technique of lipolysis (the elimination of fat cells) that uses the process of freezing individual fat cells to reduce or entirely shed problem areas, such as stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Fat freezing in Lone Tree can be used on a variety of areas of the body, including:
Under the chin
Above the knees
Under the bra
Inner & outer thighs
A brief history of fat freezing techniques
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University discovered Cryolipolysis entirely by accident. They observed that some children who frequently ate popsicles experienced a loss of fat cells in their cheeks over time, sometimes even resulting in dimples. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
They were able to patent a new technology to perform a similar procedure on different areas of the body, and obtain FDA Clearance in 2016.
How does fat freezing in Lone Tree work?
We go through life with the same number of fat cells; typically, this number is set during our adolescence. Over time, as we intake calories, age, and go through other biological processes (such as pregnancy), these fat cells expand and change our outer appearance.
Over 6 million fat freezing treatments have been performed nationwide. But how does it work?
Losing weight versus losing fat cells
The process of losing weight does not eliminate fat cells. When we diet and exercise, these fat cells do become smaller; however, the actual number of cells does not change. Even those living a healthy lifestyle may have stubborn areas of fat that are not affected by diet or exercise.
That’s where fat freezing in Lone Tree comes in. Rather than the “shrinking” process that normally occurs during regular diet and exercise, CoolSculpting ensures fat cells are eliminated altogether. While this loss of fat cells does not contribute to “weight loss” in the sense that the number you see on a scale would not be affected, it does mean looking and feeling slimmer in your own clothes.
Fat cells are more susceptible to temperature (more so than our muscles, skin, and nerves) which makes “freezing” a perfect procedure to isolate and eliminate these cells.
The experts at DejaVu are here to help clarify the CoolSculpting process so our clients in Lone Tree better understand how CoolSculpting may help them resolve stubborn areas of fat.
Before your appointment: Creating a Treatment Plan
Our team will help you to create an individualized plan based on your specific goals and target treatment areas. Many clients have one or two places they have always been self-conscious about, but have been otherwise unsuccessful at sculpting or reducing. Your DejaVu CoolSculpting technician will listen to your wants, needs, and concerns, and tailor a plan that will work to achieve your ideal body sculpting goals. This may mean using multiple applicators at once, or setting up a timeline for multiple treatments over a period of time.
Step 1: Treatment Day
After we determine exactly what area(s) we are treating and we’ve both agreed on the right plan for you, your CoolSculpting specialist will take thorough photos of your treatment areas. We will document your weight. Then, we’ll mark out the area to be treated. Again we’ll check in the mirror and agree together on the area to be treated.
Step 2: Preparing the Treatment Area
We will get you comfortable for your first applicator placement. Then we’ll prepare the treatment area by wiping the area with a pre-skin treatment wipe. Then we’ll place a gel pad over the treatment area to protect the skin from the cooling technology. This gel sheet allows efficient and effective fat freezing in Lone Tree without damage to the skin.
Step 3: Activating the Device
Once the gel sheet is in place, your clinician will place the device and its suction cup over the previously marked areas. This cup provides a suction motion in order to draw the undesired fat cells away from your body and apply cooling panels to the treatment area.
Step 4: Fat Freezing in Lone Tree
The fat freezing process will take 35 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area of treatment. At the start of the treatment, you may experience pressure or a cool tingling sensation. This normally disappears after a few minutes as the area is numbed by the cool temperate of the device.
Many of our clients receive other aesthetic procedures during this time; others choose to read a book, watch TV, listen to music, or take a nap.
Step 5: Massaging the Area
Once the procedure is completed and the device has been removed, we will use another helpful technology, Z-Wave, to break up the damaged fat cells and relieve some of the stiffness or firmness of the skin. We include this technology in the price of your treatment, this has been proven to show a significant better fat removal after treatment.
Step 6: Schedule a Follow-up Assessment
We’ll schedule you for a follow-up appointment after your procedure to ensure you have achieved the results you want and discuss next steps in your long-term health plan with your physician.
Risks, recovery, and side effects
Fat freezing in Lone Tree has not produced any concerning side effects outside of minor effects at the site of the procedure. Afterwards, the skin may be red, cold, numb, or tingling. However, these side effects resolve on their own after the procedure, though some clients may experience them for up to 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure.
Clients are able to resume normal activities immediately following the procedure, including exercise, work, and more.
Because the fat cells are gone for good, it means that unless you were to gain weight, results of fat freezing in Lone Tree should be long lasting, if not permanent. Most clients see changes and results to their treatment areas within 2 to 3 months after they receive a fat freezing treatment in Lone Tree at DejaVu.
Because of this timeline, we see many clients around the holidays. CoolSculpting is the perfect way to feel prepared for upcoming events where you want to look your best and feel confident in your own skin.
