Frustrated with stubborn fat? CoolSculpting can help! This non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option utilizes cool temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells. We here at The Cosmetic Vein and Laser Center (CVLC) proudly offer all of the latest technology that CoolSculpting has allowing us to provide you with better results, more comfortable treatments, and shorter treatment sessions! In 2010, we were the first practice in WNY to offer CoolSculpting services, and we have performed more than 1,700 treatments since then!
This revolutionary body sculpting device at CVLC targets stubborn “bumps and bulges” and non-invasively removes excess body fat. This treatment was studied and pioneered by two Harvard University dermatologists from 2007-2010. And, CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ™ is cleared by the FDA for non-invasive fat reduction. Based on the science of Cryolipolysis™, CoolSculpting uses patented focal cooling to gently and effectively reduce fat bulges in targeted areas of the body without needles, incisions, pain medication, or recovery time. The handpieces are designed to target the abdomen, love handles, flanks, excess bra folds, anterior peri-axillary fat, outer thighs, inner thighs, double chins and most recently upper arms. CoolSculpting works by slowly chilling the fat layer and inducing liquefaction of excess pockets of fat. The treatment involves the placement of one of our applicators over the “bulge” via suction, followed by skin cooling that occurs slowly and gently over a 35-75 minute period of time. We have two devices and faster more effective handpieces than ever and can treat both sides at the same time. We call that DUALsculpting.
The treatment is virtually painless because the skin cooling acts as an anesthetic. Patients are able to read, use their laptop or even watch a movie while having this treatment. Although there can be temporary bruising in the treatment area and a few weeks of some numbness, patients can return to their normal routine immediately after. No medications need to be started or stopped, no garments need to be worn, and patients can return to exercise that day. Fat reduction is seen after only one treatment, but may take 2-3 months’ time to notice the full results. Additional treatments would yield additive results.
Come visit us in the office and we will provide you with a customized treatment plan that will make you “love your body again.”
