CoolSculpting, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction

before-after-blogYou’ve exercised, dieted, and used expensive creams and lotions, but you find the extra weight around your abdomen, back, and thighs is nearly impossible to lose. If you are not ready for a surgical solution like liposuction, the groundbreaking CoolSculpting technology may be the perfect next step to finally address these troublesome areas.

This technique uses a patented cooling process called Cryolipolysis® to selectively target and eliminate fat cells without damage to other cells and tissue. When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again. However, the CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas with the welcome result that fat cells that are no longer there can’t get bigger.

As a new procedure, CoolSculpting is highly regulated.  Esana has been able to offer it for the abdomen, back, love handles, and inner thighs for over a year. In April 2014, the FDA also approved the procedure for the outer thigh, and Esana is the only area practice offering CoolSculpting for this new area.

Using either a paddle-like device or a vacuum-assisted applicator, CoolSculpting delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. You can read, text, or just comfortably relax during the procedure. The treated fat cells are chilled, and then over time, they are programmed to self-destruct. Over the next few months, your body naturally eliminates them, leaving more sculpted thighs, a smoother back, a slimmer abdomen, or a reduction in your love handles.

If you choose to have CoolSculpting in several areas over several sessions, you and your physician can develop a treatment plan. However, unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they’re gone for good. Whether or not you weigh less, you’ll be thinner, more sculpted, and your clothes will finally fit the way you always wanted them to.
