Does CoolSculpting Last Forever?

Does CoolSculpting Last Forever? | Beverly Hills Medical SpaIn recent years, CoolSculpting has established its position as one of the most reliable, astute, and effective non-surgical fat reduction procedures available for both women and men. However, many new patients may still have concerns about how successfully it can eliminate unwanted fat pockets, and whether the results will be natural looking and sustainable.

CoolSculpting is designed to freeze the fat cells to their death (no one will miss them!), and accomplishes the goals of body contouring without involving any cuts, incisions, needles or drugs. The unique and completely non-invasive treatment process of CoolSculpting can make some patients wonder whether the results of this procedure can be long-lasting or even last forever.

During the initial consultation, the CoolSculpting treatment provider will explain various aspects of the procedure, and discuss the potential longevity of the results.

Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other communities and cities in this area of California have an opportunity to receive CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure from sagacious and focused board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie.

 

Treatment Delivery

CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared, patented procedure that will kill the stubborn fat cells through its innovative cooling process. The patient will simply relax in a comfortable in-office environment, while the CoolSculpting applicator will work to freeze the fat cells in targeted and specific areas. This is not a guessing game!

A single CoolSculpting treatment session may last for about 40 minutes with the latest applicators. The session can conveniently fit into the busy schedule of a patient. The procedure involves no downtime, and patients can return to their normal routine or go back to their workplace after the treatment session.

 

Sustainable Results

The frozen fat cells with CoolSculpting will gradually begin to crystallize and die, and will get removed from the body over a few weeks. Patients often find improvement in their body contours after just one treatment, but will achieve progressive fat reduction over multiple treatment sessions. Most patients can expect to achieve about 20 percent fat reduction in the treated sites. In about two to four months, patients will experience impressive results with CoolSculpting.

And they will not be the last person who undergoes this treatment and is content with the results.

 

Fat Reduction

The innovative cooling treatment technique of CoolSculpting was created by Harvard scientists. Once the applicator exposes the fat cells to controlled cold temperatures, the fat cells will freeze and gradually disintegrate. It is a biological and chemical process; they do not stand a chance. As a result, the patient will lose fat in a natural looking way. No different than play a bunch of basketball or running around the block several times and for a few weeks, for instance. The disintegrated fat cells will be permanently re-absorbed by the body.

Adults do not grow new fat cells. Therefore, the fat cells once eliminated with CoolSculpting will not return. This creates permanent fat reduction because the fat cells are gone for good. However, patients should note that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet or exercise. The procedure will only remove about 20 percent of the fat cells.

The remaining fat cells can still grow in size and compromise the body contours, if the patient’s body weight increases beyond the ideal range. Therefore, patients should maintain healthy body weight during the treatment sessions and beyond in order to extend the benefits of CoolSculpting for a long time to come.

Noteworthy and judicious plastic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, and other neighborhoods and suburbs in this area of SoCal for CoolSculpting.

How much fat can I lose after CoolSculpting?

How much fat can I lose after CoolSculpting? | Beverly Hills Med SpaStubborn fat deposits may occur in certain areas of the body due to numerous factors. CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive way to get rid of excess fat and restore slimmer contours.

But many people are concerned about how much fat reduction may be achieved with CoolSculpting, and whether this non-surgical technique can meet their personal cosmetic goals.

During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain all about CoolSculpting, and evaluate the patient’s anatomy to estimate how much fat reduction may be achieved.

A dedicated provider will ensure that the patient has clear information on potential benefits and limitations of CoolSculpting in order to make a well-considered choice. Board certified and stellar plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.

 

Amount of Fat Loss

Patients can expect to lose fat in targeted areas of the body where the skin is fairly elastic, but fat tissue pockets are excessive. The amount of fat loss for a patient will vary depending on the location of fat pocket, the patient’s propensity to gain or lose fat, the number of treatment sessions received, and the skill and experience of the treatment provider.

In general, most patients may expect to gradually achieve a fat loss of about 20 to 30 percent in the treated areas. Although some patients will be able to see noticeable fat reduction within a few weeks, but most patients will achieve the desired fat loss in about three months. This gradual process allows for healthier and more natural fat reduction from the body.

 

Maximizing Fat Loss

To achieve maximum fat loss, patients should be conscious about maintaining their body weight during the course of the CoolSculpting treatment and beyond. If the patient gains weight during the course of the treatment, the body contouring results will be less effective. Patients should be aware that CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure, and it is not a weight loss treatment.

CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet or exercise. The ideal candidate will be committed to maintaining a balanced diet and daily exercise and fitness regimen in order to extend the fat loss benefits of CoolSculpting for a long time.

 

Permanent Fat Cell Elimination

CoolSculpting technique will freeze the fat cells to their death. These dead cells will be naturally processed and permanently eliminated from the body, revealing a more sculpted and toned appearance in the treated areas. The dead cells will exit from the body through the natural metabolic process.

The amazing thing about CoolSculpting is that the fat cells once removed will not return. Adults do not produce new fat cells, so the fat loss is permanent, However, weight gain can still occur, which will cause the remaining fat cells to expand. Therefore, increase in body weight will lead to an increase in the size of the remaining fat cells.

Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive CoolSculpting and various other cosmetic procedures from the terrific and adroit plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie.

How to Reduce a Double Chin?

How to Reduce a Double Chin?  | Beverly Hills CoolsculptingFat accumulation under the chin and around the neck is a common problem for many men and women, which is known by the name of a double chin. It can create an unsightly lower face contour, and compromise the overall appearance of a person. The challenge is that it can be difficult to reduce stubborn fat tissue in this area with diet or exercise.

For people who want to get rid of the double chin appearance without involving surgery, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq can provide a credible, non-invasive solution. CoolSculpting has introduced a special device called CoolMini specifically for difficult to reach areas such as below the chin.

The FDA cleared CoolMini device can reduce excess submental fat and enhance the chin appearance. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides CoolSculpting and CoolMini treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other cities and neighborhoods in this part of Southern California.

 

Innovative Cooling Technique

CoolMini device is based on the same path-breaking cooling principle that has made CoolSculpting one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction procedures today. With this technique, it is possible lose fat below the chin without involving any incisions, cuts, injections, medications or anesthesia.

The innovative cooling technique involved in CoolMini treatment was developed by researchers at Harvard, who found that fat cells are the earliest responders to cold temperatures. Using the cooling process of CoolMini, the treatment provider can isolate the targeted fat cells below the chin, and cause their internal disintegration.

The CoolMini applicator will work gently to simply freeze the fat, and cause the disruption of the fat cells. The fat cells will be gradually eliminated through the body’s metabolic activity, leaving behind enhanced chin contours. Fat cells once eliminated through CoolMini will be gone for good.

 

Treatment Process

To get rid of double chin, an average person may require about 20 percent fat reduction in the under-chin area. This much fat reduction is typically achieved in one to two treatment sessions that last for less than one hour each. The CoolMini treatment provider will clamp the neck fat into the curved jaws of the applicator, and expose the double chin area to a controlled cool temperature.

The cold temperature will numb the targeted area, but will not cause any serious discomfort for the patient. A few patients may experience mild discomfort, swelling or pain for a temporary period, which is generally well-tolerated without local anesthesia. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Motykie, receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for double chin reduction.

 

Proven Safety and Efficacy

A clinical trial involving 60 men and women between the ages of 22 and 65 was conducted to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of CoolMini for double chin reduction. Successful results of the trial led to the FDA clearance for CoolMini device. Most patients reported conspicuous improvement in about three weeks, while maximum impact was noticed in about one to three months after the treatment.

Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss

Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss | Beverly Hills CoolsculptingWeight loss continues to be one of the hottest topics of all time in the world of aesthetics. Everyone wants to have slim figure to flaunt, and most people assume that they can have a sterling body shape if they lose weight. However, weight loss is not fat loss, even though a majority of people use both terms interchangeably.

Cosmetic experts widely recommend that those who are looking for a more attractive and proportionate figure should aim for fat loss rather than weight loss. CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared, non-invasive procedure that can help an individual achieve the goal of fat reduction. Motykie medical spa provides CoolSculpting treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities across the horizon.

 

Limitations of Weight Loss

While many people want to lose weight, but in most cases they actually carry excess fat deposits. A healthy goal should be to have 10 percent body fat for men and 15 percent for women. Fat tissue in excess can make the body appear unshapely with uneven body contours. Body weight, on the other hand, is the sum of the weight of muscles, bones, organs and body fat.

Therefore, the focus should be on achieving fat loss rather than weight loss. Body weight measurements can be unreliable because it fluctuates daily. Body weight is influenced by the contents of the stomach, bowel and bladder, water retention or loss, muscle gain or loss and fat gain or loss. Even the BMI standard to measure body weight is flawed because it does not take into account the amount of body fat.

In other words, while weighing scale can mislead anyone, clothes, mirrors, pictures and fat calipers do not lie. Getting into the mindset of losing weight can be a risky proposition for an individual’s health unless it is done in a very scientific and controlled manner. Fat loss, on the other hand, can be conveniently achieved through a completely non-invasive technique such as CoolSculpting, which can help to lose fat without surgery, injections, dieting, or medications.

 

How does CoolSculpting Work?

The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure will ensure that the patient loses undesirable fat tissue, and not the vital body muscle. The procedure involves a revolutionary cooling technique that was developed by Harvard scientists. The targeted area of the body is exposed to a cold temperature using the CoolSculpting device.

The fat cells respond first to the cool temperature, and CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells to their death. The frozen cells gradually disintegrate and leave the body through the natural metabolic process, revealing a slimmer and more youthful looking body contour.

 

Benefits

CoolSculpting procedure involves a few treatment sessions of about 45 minutes each. The patient can immediately resume their normal activities after the treatment. No anesthesia is involved, and most patients will not experience any significant discomfort during or after the treatment.

That makes the procedure ideal for working people and busy moms who may not want to undergo a prolonged weight loss plan or weight loss surgery. Motykie med spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

What does CoolSculpting Treat?

What does CoolSculpting Treat? | Los Angeles | Beverly Hills Medical SpaCoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures to reduce fat in certain areas of the body. This FDA cleared procedure involves a unique cooling process designed to freeze the fat and gradually eliminate it from the targeted area. This allows for slimmer contours to appear in a sustainable, natural looking manner.

Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon providing CoolSculpting and other innovative and advanced cosmetic body contouring procedures. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive state of the art treatments from Dr. Motykie.

 

Areas Treated

CoolSculpting can help a patient lose fat in specific areas, including upper abdomen, lower abdomen, flanks or muffin tops, lower back, inner thighs, bra roll and upper arms. CoolSculpting now also offers the CoolMini device, which can treat fat in smaller, difficult to reach areas such as under the chin. The treatment provider will adopt a conservative approach and choose the most appropriate areas in order to create consistent and natural looking results.

Each patient’s anatomy is unique, and CoolSculpting may not be equally effective in treating every area of excess fat tissue. Therefore, the provider should adopt a customized treatment approach in order to help the patient achieve optimal outcomes. The advantage with CoolSculpting is that the fat cells once eliminated will not return, and the results will be permanent.

 

Extent of Treatment

CoolSculpting procedure will typically involve two to six treatment sessions, with each session scheduled a few weeks apart from the other. Originally, an average treatment session would last for about one hour, but with innovations in CoolSculpting treatment devices, now the treatment time has been reduced by about one-third for each session.

The number of treatment session varies for each patient because the procedure depends on a thermally induced fat cell injury, and gradual removal of the damaged cells from the treatment area. Therefore, patients requiring a larger volume of fat cell reduction or having a higher density of fatty tissue will often need more treatment sessions to achieve their desired results.

 

Suitable Candidates

A stellar candidate for CoolSculpting would be an individual who is at or close to their ideal body weight with small to moderate bulges of fatty tissue in specific areas. A candidate who enjoys terrific health and has well-defined pockets of unwanted fat tissue will usually achieve the best outcomes from CoolSculpting.

 

Not a Weight Loss Procedure

Overweight patients will generally not achieve very significant improvement or may require more treatment sessions to achieve fat reduction. In any case, patients should note that CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment, and not intended to be a weight loss procedure. The procedure is specifically designed to improve body contours in targeted areas.


In most cases, patients will be able to notice an improvement in clothing fit and a reduction in the measurement of their waist, hip, and upper arm and thigh circumference. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other parts of the Southern California region for CoolSculpting and various other cosmetic procedures.

Take Off Holiday Weight with CoolSculpting

Take Off Holiday Weight with CoolSculpting | Beverly Hills Medical SpaThe holiday period is typically the time when many women and men will tend to relax their diet and exercise efforts and may put on extra pounds of weight. However, it is possible to restore a leaner figure by reducing excess fat tissue with CoolSculpting procedure.

CoolSculpting is a popular, FDA cleared procedure that can treat the unsightly fat bulges in a completely non-invasive manner, and enhance the body contours in specific areas. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and surrounding locations.

 

How does it Work?

CoolSculpting procedure is based on the revolutionary cryolipolysis technique, which was created by Harvard scientists. The procedure is designed to freeze the fat off by treating the affected areas through a unique cooling process. The cold energy permanently destroys the unwanted fat cells, leaving behind more desirable and sculpted contours.

The procedure can address multiple areas, and involves a few treatment sessions of about 35 to 40 minutes each. The patient can shed off their excess holiday fat without any cuts, incisions, needles, or medications. No anesthesia is involved, and the patient does not have to go through any pain or downtime. Patients can simply resume their normal routine after the treatment.

 

Fat Elimination

The CoolSculpting procedure is aimed at eliminating the targeted fat cells without causing any damage to the healthy surrounding tissue. During the treatment, about 20 percent of the fat cells are killed. The fat released through these cells gets gradually absorbed in the body, and improved contours will develop over several weeks in a natural looking manner.

CoolSculpting will shrink or sculpt the stubborn fat tissue areas and help the patient to lose fat, but it is not a weight loss procedure. The patient should be prepared to maintain a balanced diet and a regular exercise regiment following the treatment in order to extend the benefits of the treatment for a long time. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting treatment.

 

Innovations in CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting now offers a new 3-in-1 CoolAdvantage applicator, which can treat a larger surface area in one time and deliver colder temperatures for quick action. This innovation has reduced the treatment time of one CoolSculpting session nearly by half.

Zeltiq, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting device, has now also introduced CoolMini, which is another FDA cleared device working on the same principle as CoolSculpting. CoolMini is designed to reduce fat in hard to reach areas such as below the chin, and creates similar body contouring results as CoolSculpting.

 

Safety Aspects

CoolSculpting is one of the safest body contouring procedures, even among various non-surgical techniques. The procedure has been successfully performed hundreds of thousands of times, with very high levels of safety compared to other fat reduction procedures.

Unlike most other heat-based non-surgical fat reduction procedures, CoolSculpting uses a gentle cooling process, which causes no harm to the surrounding body areas or the outer skin layers. It is widely chosen today for reduction of holiday fat in a quick and easy manner.

CoolSculpting and Other Non-Invasive Options for Fat Removal

CoolSculpting and Non-Invasive Options for Fat Removal | Beverly HillsStubborn pockets of fatty tissue can become resistant to diet and exercise over time. This condition can be effectively corrected with innovative body contouring techniques such as CoolSculpting. A growing number of patients prefer completely non-invasive procedures such as CoolSculpting because it involves little to no downtime or discomfort.

A few other unique non-invasive treatment options can be applied in addition to CoolSculpting to achieve improvements in body contours. These procedures may be used independently or in combination, depending on the patient’s needs. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides non-invasive body contouring treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.

 

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting makes use of a cutting edge technology called cryolipolysis to freeze the fat cells in a selective manner and eliminate them from the body. Through its gentle, controlled cooling process, the patient can achieve smoother, more youthful looking contours without any injections, medications, or surgery. The fat cells gradually disintegrate and get naturally reabsorbed in the body, revealing an attractive figure.

The precise targeting mechanism of CoolSculpting ensures that the healthy surrounding tissue remains unharmed during the procedure. The procedure involves no anesthesia, and a single treatment session can be completed in less than one hour as an in-office procedure. Areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, and buttocks can be effectively sculpted with this treatment.

CoolSculpting has now introduced the innovative CoolMini applicator that is designed to treat smaller, difficult to reach pockets of fatty tissue, such as the chin and neck. Now patients who are bothered by the appearance of a double chin or submental fat can improve the chin contours with CoolMini treatment. Both CoolSculpting and CoolMini have been cleared by the FDA for specific cosmetic fat reduction purposes.

 

Ultrasound Cavitation

Another innovative procedure to help a patient lose fat without surgery is ultrasound cavitation. Using ultrasound energy, this non-invasive procedure will liquefy the unwanted fat cells, which will then get naturally drained by the body’s natural filtration system. A single fat cavitation treatment session can be completed in less than 30 minutes.

Areas with localized fat such as abdomen, thighs, buttocks and flanks can be easily treated with ultrasound cavitation. The procedure will usually involve no pain or discomfort, but a few patients may experience mild redness in the treated areas. Just like CoolSculpting, the procedure is designed to re-contour specific areas, but is not a weight loss treatment. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for these procedures.

 

RF Skin Tightening

In several cases, the treatment provider may recommend CoolSculpting or Ultrasound Cavitation in conjunction with RF skin tightening. This treatment involves the use of radio frequency energy to gently tighten the loose skin and improve contours. RF energy penetrates deep into the targeted skin tissue.

The controlled heat will stimulate new collagen production, and create an enhanced and firm skin appearance on the surface. These fat reduction and skin tightening procedures may sometimes be topped with Clay Wrap Therapy to detoxify and re-mineralize the skin.

What You May Want to Know about the Cost of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting Cost

coolsculpting-before-and-after-picturesMotykie Medical Spa is a state of the art facility providing the latest anti-aging, skin rejuvenation, fat reduction and other cosmetic enhancement solutions. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive innovative treatments at the medspa in a safe and friendly environment.

Apart from injectables, laser treatments and other non-surgical treatments, Motykie Medical Spa also provides cutting-edge fat reduction treatments such as CoolSculpting. The key difference at the medspa is that the facility is headed by an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie. Dr. Motykie runs the facility applying the same high standards and practices that are typically a part of a plastic surgery practice.

What is CoolSculpting?

Problem of excess fat deposits in specific areas of the body can be corrected with plastic surgery, but some people wish to avoid surgery. In such cases, CoolSculpting has emerged as an effective non-surgical option that provides the desired results without surgery. Even among various non-surgical fat reduction treatments, CoolSculpting adopts a novel approach.

Unlike other technologies that apply heating or laser based approaches to reduce the fat, CoolSculpting freezes away the unwanted fat cells to their death. The procedure becomes painless, involves no downtime, and does not affect the healthy areas of the skin. Results are more naturally looking because the fat cells get eliminated from the body gradually in a natural way.

Factors Affecting Cost of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting cost may vary from one medical spa to another in different locations, or even at the same geographical location. For instance, the cost in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and surrounding areas is likely to be different from the cost of the same procedure in Jacksonville, FL. The cost of living in two different states may be different, which can impact the cost of all kinds of services, including medspa services.

The skills, experience and reputation of the doctor who heads the practice providing CoolSculpting can make a difference to the costs of the procedure. The quality of services and comforts provided at a particular medical spa, the skills and experience of the support staff, and the advanced technology and equipment available at the facility can also impact the costs of CoolSculpting to some extent.

Average Cost of the Procedure

For a new patient, it is important to have a ballpark idea of the cost of a procedure while evaluating his or her treatment options. An experienced doctor will usually give an idea of the cost of a cosmetic enhancement procedure at the time of the initial consultation. Various factors are important while comparing treatment options, and cost is one of the factors. Patients should make an informed decision by considering the average cost of the procedure at a particular medspa vis-à-vis the kind of safety and services are provided at the facility.

Since CoolSculpting is typically viewed as an elective cosmetic procedure, it may not be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. Financing options should be considered before going ahead with the procedure and most likely you will not be allowed to have this procedure unless the facility knows how you are going to pay for this service.

CoolSculpting vs. Laser Lipolysis

CoolSculpting vs. Laser Lipolysis | Beverly Hills | West HollywoodExcess fatty deposits in certain areas of the body may become stubborn over time and stop responding to diet and exercise. In such cases, the patient has numerous choices for body contouring cosmetic procedures, including CoolSculpting and Laser Lipolysis.

During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain the pros and cons of each available option, and help the patient to make the right choice. Motykie medical spa provides CoolSculpting as a state of the art non-invasive procedure to remove unwanted fat for patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an innovative, FDA cleared procedure exclusively designed to help the patients lose fat without surgery. CoolSculpting does not involve the use of any cuts, incisions, needles, or medications, and yet produces desirable outcomes in a completely non-invasive manner.

CoolSculpting is based on a unique cooling technique that was developed by Harvard scientists who found that fat cells respond quickly to cool temperatures. Using this principle, CoolSculpting exposes the targeted areas in the body to cool temperatures under controlled conditions.

The exposure to coolness isolates the unwanted fat cells and quickly freezes them. The frozen fat cells gradually disintegrate and get removed from the body in the natural metabolic process. This reveals a slimmer, more youthful looking body contour over a few weeks.

What is Laser Lipolysis?

Unlike CoolSculpting, which is designed to freeze the fat cells to their death, laser lipolysis involves a heat-based process to eliminate excess fatty tissue. With this technique, heat energy from a laser beam travels through the skin to the affected fat deposit area.

The fat tissue gets melted with the laser energy, which is then removed using a suction device attached to a cannula. Laser cauterizes the blood vessels as it works, which helps to minimize bruising or bleeding during the treatment. The procedure can be performed on the abdomen, thighs, hips, knees, calves, neck, chest and chin, just like CoolSculpting.

Differences

Laser lipolysis is a minimally invasive procedure, but not entirely non-invasive like CoolSculpting. Laser lipolysis will require the use of local anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable during the treatment process. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, can be performed completely without any need for local anesthesia. It is largely a pain-free procedure, and the patient can simply read a book, watch television or take a nap while the treatment session is in progress.

In case of laser lipolysis, the risk is minimal, but the patient may still experience some degree of bruising and swelling due to manual fat removal through a cannula. In rare cases, a patient may also have a poor reaction to local anesthesia. Minor discomfort and burns may occur for some time after the treatment. But in case of CoolSculpting, the recovery is almost completely risk-free and comfortable.

CoolSculpting involves almost no downtime, and the patient can usually return to their normal routine the same day. For busy moms and working people, CoolSculpting is an ideal solution because it lets them carry on with their activities immediately. Dr. Motykie’s practice provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas.

Dr. Motykie’s Treatment to Freeze the Fat Off

Dr. Motykie's Treatment to Freeze the Fat Off | Beverly Hills Med SpaSedentary lifestyles, poor dietary habits, heredity, pregnancy, and other factors may contribute to the development of stubborn fat pockets in certain areas of the body. Although liposuction plastic surgery procedure is available to address this problem, many people want to avoid the obvious hassles of surgery. CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive fat reduction alternative for such individuals.

CoolSculpting has emerged as one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatments today because it involves almost no pain, discomfort, or downtime and produces significant results for most patients. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

Cryolipolysis – By Harvard Scientists

Many years ago, the scientists at Harvard University observed that whenever a frozen object comes in contact with the skin, it tends to eliminate small pockets of fat cells. This led them to conduct research in this area and they concluded that cold temperatures can target fat cells in an isolated manner, without damaging the healthy surrounding skin or tissue.

This research became the insight behind Cryolipolysis, the proven scientific phenomenon on which the CoolSculpting fat reduction cosmetic procedure is based. The procedure is designed to freeze the fat off in a targeted manner and reveal a slimmer, youthful looking contour.

How does it Work?

The FDA cleared CoolSculpting technique targets unwanted fat bulges in specific areas, such as the abdomen, flanks, outer and inner thighs, and double chin. The CoolSculpting device will safely deliver precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively impact the fat cells underneath the skin.

The fat cells treated with this cold temperature become frozen or crystallized and eventually disintegrate and die. Over time the body will lose fat in the treated areas through its metabolic process and eliminate the dead cells. The patient will have a slimmer, more sculpted figure as desired.

Long-term Results

Once the frozen fat cells are eliminated from the body through its natural process, they are gone for good. The fat cell distribution in the untreated areas will not undergo any change. This means that the eliminated fat cells in the treated areas will not come back. However, the patients should know that CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise, and they should follow a healthy and active lifestyle to maintain the results for a long time.

CoolSculpting results have been evaluated in more than 4,000 clinical trial paitents, and over two million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed around the world. According to various studies, the patient satisfaction rates with CoolSculpting are up to 95 percent. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

Length of Treatment

The treatment provider will create a customized CoolSculpting fat reduction plan tailored to the patient’s unique cosmetic goals. The length of treatment will vary according to the number of areas being treated during an appointment. With new and improved CoolSculpting devices, the treatment session can be completed in about 35 minutes. The patient may need three to six treatment sessions, depending on their fat reduction needs.
