Introducing CoolSculpting Elite!

What is CoolSculpting Elite?  Exclusively at glowMD!!     

If you’ve been struggling with stubborn fat, it’s time to discover CoolSculpting® Elite.                                              

Dr. Terri Morris at The Dermatology Center & glowMD Laser MedSpa is now exclusively offering CoolSculpting Elite! Just when you thought you had the best—it got better!! Coolsculpting Elite of Fredericksburg is a fat reduction system with more advanced applicators designed to complement the body’s natural curves. It harnesses proven CoolSculpting technology to target, freeze and eliminate treated fat cells. CoolSculpting has been an industry-leader, creating the market for non-invasive fat reduction for over 11 years. Now CoolSculpting Elite builds on that heritage with a completely re-invented next-generation technology that delivers great results! The new C-shaped applicators are designed to complement the body’s natural curves for improved fit and comfort during treatment.

What areas can be treated? 

CoolSculpting Elite is FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in the body. CoolSculpting Elite effectively treats the same 9 areas that traditional CoolSculpting treats:

  • Flanks, also known as love-handles or muffin top
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs, including inner thighs and outer thighs
  • Excess fat underneath the chin (double chin)
  • Bra fat
  • Back fat
  • Fat underneath the buttocks, (a.k.a. “banana roll”)
  • Upper arms
  • Submandibular area below the jawline (chin)

The number one aesthetic concern for consumers is unwanted body fat. In the world of aesthetics we have so many choices that many patients do not know what to do or what type of service to pick. Coolsculpting Elite helps in many ways alleviate the fear of surgery, privacy and downtime.

Surgical vs non-surgical.

Coolsculpting Elite is a non-surgical procedure. Patients are catching up with emails, napping, watching Netflix while they are being treated. You can also eat a meal before treatment. This is not surgery. No medications, no garments, very to little downtime. 

Recovery time. How do I fit this into my busy schedule?  Faster…..better!

Coolsculpting Elite has little to zero downtime. You may leave the office and go to the gym if you wish, take a walk, ride your bike, whatever you normally do. Patients catch up on work, emails, calls, zoom meetings while doing CoolSculpting Elite!

Privacy. Many patients do not want anyone to know that they have had any cosmetic work done.

No one will ever know but who you want to know that you have any anything done. Over time, you will just reduce, reduce, reduce. It’s a gradual reduction that takes place over a short period of time. One may think you have just been better with diet and exercise.

How many sessions will I need?

As patients vary with there concerns, the number of sessions will vary to effectively treat problem areas. Typically, most patients love multiple sessions for further fat reduction, but other patients may only require 1 session and are very happy. It depends on each patient. During your complimentary consultation, you will meet with a certified provider that will evaluate your concerns and recommend a treatment plan that works best for you. glowMD has been treating patients in Fredericksburg and the surrounding counties for many years, far past other providers in our area.

How long does the procedure take?

The duration of the procedure will depend on what areas we are treating and the number of applicators being used. Generally, the average time is about 35 minutes per area. But because we are the only practice to offer Elite Dual Sculpting, that allows us to treat multiple areas at one time reducing your treatment time. We can them treat two areas in 40 minutes! That can be like a lower abdomen, flanks or arms. Its great because you spend very little time in the treatment chair. A single CoolSculpting Elite  treatment typically results in a 20-25% reduction in the fatty area treated. A slimmer contour is generally noticeable as soon as 4 weeks following treatment. Total results noticed in 12 weeks.

What is treatment like?

When you arrive, we will take you back into a private room for photos. Patients are instructed to wear something comfortable, but we may offer disposable garments to wear depending on the treatment area. After photos are taken, we take you into your private treatment room where you can relax and get ready for your Coolsculpting Elite treatment. We do offer complimentary WIFI, music if you wish – as we go about our business of removing your unwanted fat. There are no needles, medications, cuts or anesthesia during this procedure. You may feel sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching or tingling that normally subsides over a few minutes of time. When you leave the office, you are feeling fine and can proceed with your normal activities. We would expect little to no downtime.

Is CoolSculpting Elite Effective?

The answer is yes and here’s why! The CoolSculpting procedure is the world’s # 1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment. Now it just got better with CoolSculpting Elite! Our bodies convert excess calories into fat, which is then stored in fat cells. Fat cells are basically microscopic storage containers for fat. Fat cells do not divide, regenerate or move from one spot on the body to another. CoolSculpting Elite treatment results in a decrease of the amount of perky fat cells in the body, resulting in an improved contour (although individual results may vary).

When we gain or lose weight, our fat cells grow and shrink depending on the amount of fat being stored.  A fatty bulge exists because it is an area where there are relatively more fat cells.  (This is genetically predetermined.  Ugh. Thank you mom and dad.) It is for the reasons above that it is simply not possible to spot reduce fatty bulges with diet or exercise. Weight gain will increase the size of the remaining cells throughout the body, but the contour change produced by the treatment will remain the same.

What Can I Expect After a CoolSculpting Elite Treatment?

There are absolutely no restrictions on activities following treatment. One may expect the treated area to feel numb to touch for a period of 2-4 weeks. This will go away on its own. Occasionally, the pinching type of applicator might create a small bruise (because of the suction, like a hickey) which will go away within days. A small minority of patients will experience discomfort and/or some swelling in the treated area; this too resolves within 7-14 days and generally requires no treatment at all.  Best of all, a reduction in fatty bulges is typically seen in just 4-6 weeks after your CoolSculpting Elite treatment.

  

Get The Skinny on CoolSculpting Elite!

CoolSculpting was initially developed by two Harvard scientists, Dr. Dieter Manstein and Dr. Rox Anderson. They observed the basic biological fact that fat cells are more vulnerable and sensitive to cold injury than the other cells around them (skin, muscle, nerve, blood vessels). The two doctors were both familiar with a strange phenomenon known as “popsicle panniculitis”, which has to do with the loss of cheek fat that occurs while sucking on a frozen Popsicle. Their observations led to the development of CoolSculpting technology, now owned and produced by the publicly owned company, Zeltiq, based in Pleasanton, CA.

Can CoolSculpting®Elite Improve the Appearance of Lax Tissue?

You’ve heard how great CoolSculpting can be, but you may be wondering: “what about laxity? Can CoolSculpting improve the appearance of lax tissue?”  When it comes to a double chin, the answer is “yes,” as the FDA has cleared CoolSculpting to improve the appearance of lax tissue in conjunction with treatments for submental fat (double chin).  In fact, CoolSculpting is the first and only non-surgical fat reduction technology to earn the FDA clearance to improve the appearance of lax tissue after treatment for a double chin.

Is CoolSculpting Elite right for you?
