Summer is still in full swing, but soon enough many of us will be putting on extra padding for the winter—but what if that was optional? Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care offers CoolSculpting, the original non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses no needles and boasts no downtime. However, results aren’t immediate which is why right now is the best time to start. Typically, CoolSculpting is recommended to have 3 – 6 cycles spaced one month apart. That means that if you start right now, you’ll be rocking your summer body even at the peak of winter.
CoolSculpting targets small areas of unwanted fat and “freezing” those fat cells, effectively killing them. It isn’t a weight loss procedure, but rather a sculpting treatment designed for those near or at their ideal weight but who struggle with stubborn areas of fat. When those fat cells are killed, they are metabolized and ejected by the body naturally in the weeks following the treatment. They are targeted in a vacuum-like device and then exposed to external freezing temperatures in 30-minute appointments while you sit back and relax. CoolSculpting is not painful, but can be a strange sensation. Still, clients usually scroll through their phones or read during their treatment.
It is important to remember a few things about CoolSculpting: first, you might not see the scale budge during your treatment sessions. Instead, depend on taking measurements and photos, and notice how your clothes fit. Second, CoolSculpting takes time. You will see some results about one month after your first cycle but full results appear 3 – 6 months after your final cycle. Patience is key. Finally, bear in mind that CoolSculpting is not an alternative to a healthy diet and lifestyle, but a complement to it. The fat cells killed with CoolSculpting are gone forever, but weight gain in the future can cause nearby fat cells to expand, grow, and move into the CoolSculpted area.
What Goes with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting only addresses small areas of unwanted fat. It does not help with building muscle and does little to help with skin tightening. This means it works well with Emsculpt, which forces targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. In fact, you can schedule your Emsculpt and CoolSculpting sessions back-to-back. Since both are non-invasive and require no downtime, you can tackle the same (or different) areas in an hour-long session.
Studies have shown that CoolSculpting can help a little with skin tightening, but if that’s an additional issue then you deserve the best technology designed just for getting taut, youthful skin. That means Thermage FLX for many people, a revolutionary system that works to tighten skin via collagen induction therapy. It’s a one and done solution with results that last for about one year on average. Thermage FLX is most often used on the face and neck, but you can use it virtually anywhere—including where you’re getting CoolSculpting. Other options might include chemical peels, microneedling, and laser skin rejuvenation to address specific skin concerns or simply to make your CoolSculpting results the best they can be.
