Body Contouring Q & A

What Is Cryolipolysis? 

Cryolipolysis is a medical treatment used to destroy fat cells by freezing. The goal of cryolipolysis is to reduce the volume of fat in a fatty bulge. Some patients may opt to have more than one area treated or to retreat an area more than once. 

How Does It Work? 

The functional principle is the controlled application of cooling, within the temperature range of -5 to −10 °C, for the non-invasive, localized reduction of fat deposits, in order to reshape the contours of the body. The degree of exposure to cooling causes the apoptosis (cell death) of subcutaneous fat tissue, without apparent damage to the overlying skin. 

As a medical procedure, cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction.

What Is Radiofrequency for Skin Tightening, Body Contouring, and Cellulite Reduction?

If you have poor skin laxity because of an operative procedure, post pregnancy, weight loss or other condition that left your skin in a loose condition, our body contouring and skin tightening services could help. This procedure will give you firmer, younger-looking skin and reverse the adverse impacts that you have experienced from prior experiences that led to your loose skin. This procedure is more invasive than many of our other services, but much less so than having to undergo surgery. If you are hoping to avoid going under the knife and dealing with a painful recovery process, you should consider radiofrequency body contouring.

How Does It Work?

Our skin-tightening procedure begins with the application of a treatment gel, which allows the handpiece to glide smoothly over your skin. The hand-held applicator is placed on the surface and moved in a circular motion. You will feel a sensation that is similar to a hot stone massage. This is due to tri-polar radio frequency energy, which heats the dermis and demands the strengthening of tissue fibers and the growth of dermal collagen. The result is improved skin laxity, texture, and sagginess. It is important to understand that this process takes time, and one treatment will not give the results that you desire. In fact, between six to 10 treatments are most commonly recommended, depending on the area of the body that is being treated. Each session takes about one hour to complete.

After our Ultrasound Lipo Cavitation treatment, 30 minutes of cardiovascular activity is recommended. You should also drink 2 liters of water per day.

Both of these treatments are non-invasive and painless with little downtime required for recovery. You can have virtually any bothersome area of the body treated.
