CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure for the reduction of unwanted fat tissue, utilizing a patented method known as cryolipolysis, or the use of cooling to break down fat. CoolSculpting® employs precisely controlled cooling to naturally reduce unwanted fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks or upper arms and under the chin. Only fat cells are frozen and are naturally eliminated from your body. The body naturally processes and permanently removes the destroyed fat over a period of 8-12 weeks. During the hour-long in-office procedure, patients wear a special device attachment around their mid-section or other treated areas and can comfortably read a newspaper or book while their “bulges” are frozen away. We are proud to be one of the few practices in Louisiana that has two CoolSculpting devices, meaning we can do twice as many treatment spots in half the time!
Vanquish is the first non-invasive, non-surgical, no-contact, no pain, no downtime device used to eliminate unwanted fat. Rather than freezing fat like CoolSculpting, Vanquish heats fat, damaging the cells, to cause permanent fat cell reduction by using high frequency radiofrequency.
Radiofrequency energy passes easily through the skin but has a harder time getting through the fat. The energy collection in the fat causes heating of the fat cells and leads to the damage that causes a natural, controlled form of cell death termed “apoptosis.” The elimination of fat cells leads to a decreased thickness of the fat layer in the area of Vanquish treatment.
Anyone who does not want to undergo surgery for fat reduction is a candidate. A series of 4 treatments spaced 1 week apart are necessary to see the maximum benefit. Results can be seen 2-4 weeks after your last treatment with final results 3-4 months after your last treatment. The most popular treatment areas are the abdomen and love handles (flanks). A new FLEX applicator allows treatment of smaller targeted zones of fat. The following areas of body may be used for noninvasive fat reduction:
- Posterior waistline (“muffin top”)
- Bra line
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
Silhouette combines the benefits of Vanquish and Exilis Ultra to maximize fat loss and skin tightening!
Liposonix™ is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to heat and destroy fat cells. The LipoSonix™ system focuses the energy at a specific depth within the fat layer without harming the skin or surrounding tissue. The body then naturally processes and permanently removes the destroyed fat over a period of 8-12 weeks. It is designed to target and destroy stubborn fat in the abdomen, flank, and thighs that does not respond to diet and exercise. After a single treatment, patients lose on average one pant or dress size (1 inch or 2.6 cm). Swelling and bruising generally resolves within 2-3 weeks. The LipoSonix™ treatment is not intended for weight loss and cannot be performed if you have a hernia in the area to be treated.
“Liposonix has helped me lose that last bit of belly fat that I could not get rid of with diet and exercise. I have dropped a dress size! It was definitely worth it!” – J.M.
