CoolSculpting: Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatment

Coolsculpt is a revolutionary technique used for years to destruct fat cells in problem areas with minimal discomfort and no recovery time. Discovered as an accident of nature, it was noted that children who were constantly consuming popsicles over continuous periods of time were seeing fatty volume loss in their cheeks. Additionally, policemen on horseback were noted to have fatty volume loss on the thigh areas where there was a higher degree of cooling in some areas versus others. These random observations led to a study on thermal effects on fat cells in relation to other types of cells in the body. It was discovered that fat has a higher temperature than other cell types for freezing point, thus enabling the invention of Coolsculpt. Now we can use non-invasive, no-recovery Coolsculpt using a simple procedure to only target fat cells, while protecting other necessary cells in the surrounding area such as skin or blood vessels or nerves. In consumer surveys, patients reported greater than 82% percentage satisfaction with their Coolsculpt treatments!

In addition to information and deals available at her practice throughout January, Dr. Turner will be offering a “Lunch and Learn” on Jan. 27, at which anyone interested in learning more about CoolSculpting® and CoolMini® can gain insight into the treatment and have their questions answered. A single CoolMini® treatment can reduce submental fat by 20 percent, and patients typically find that they achieve their desired results after one or two sessions. Since the procedure is nonsurgical, there is no necessary recovery time to schedule after. The technology behind CoolMini®—and all CoolSculpting® applicators—works to lower the temperature of fat in the body, which succumbs to cold that doesn’t harm the skin, […]
