Stubborn 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 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.
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.
