CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt: What’s the difference?

CoolSculpting vs. Emsculpt

CoolSculpting vs Emsculpt What's the differenceAdvancements in body contouring technologies have led to the development of safe and effective non-surgical procedures that can help you get rid of stubborn fat pockets and create a sculpted figure. CoolSculpting and EmSculpt are two of the leading body contouring treatments that do not involve any cuts, incisions, needles, or medications. 

During your initial consultation, your treatment provider will discuss the benefits and limitations of both treatments to help you make the best choice. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides proven and cutting-edge fat reduction treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.  

Safety  

Both CoolSculpting and EmSculpt system have been cleared by the FDA for cosmetic fat reduction. CoolSculpting has been around for much longer, and it was the first-ever treatment device to provide body contouring using freeze the fat technique.   

EmSculpt is more recent, but clinical trials as well as patient feedback have shown that it is a safe procedure for people who want to lose fat without undergoing liposuction plastic surgery.  

Results  

EmSculpt is said to remove up to 19% of fat in the treatment area. CoolSculpting is FDA-Approved to remove up to 22% of fat in the treatment area, after a couple of weeks post-treatment.

Cosmetic results with CoolSculpting may significantly differ from those of EmSculpt, and in fact, the comparison may not be appropriate. If you are looking for a more ripped or shredded look (provided you are already lean), you could achieve your goals in a better way with EmSculpt.  

However, if you are bothered by excess fat tissue deposits in certain areas where the rolls of fat are “pinchable,” you may choose CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment. However, like most patients, you might fall somewhere between these two extremes. Therefore, your med spa treatment provider will be the best judge on which procedure will work best for you.  

Versatility  

CoolSculpting device is available with multiple handpieces that can work effectively on different areas of your body. Even if you are looking for fat reduction in difficult to reach areas such as under the chin, CoolSculpting has FDA cleared devices such as CoolMini to specifically work in these areas.  

If your body weight is moderate (within 20 pounds of your ideal weight), and your primary concern is reduction of pinchable fat pockets in virtually any area of the body, CoolSculpting will have a device for you.  

EmSculpt, on the other hand, makes use of flat panels to treat excessive fats on the buttocks or abdomen, and it can even be performed over clothing. Some experts believe that candidates with a BMI lower than 25 can achieve best outcomes with EmSculpt.  

But overall, CoolSculpting will be more versatile because it can treat excess fats in the abdomen, buttocks, outer and inner thighs, upper arms, back, knees, calves, neck, and below the chin. EmSculpt is more suited only for the fat reduction in buttocks and abdominal area.  

Risks and Side Effects 

Both CoolSculpting and EmSculpt are virtually risk-free treatments. Mild and temporary side effects may occur in the treated areas, but they will resolve quickly. You will not go through any specific downtime, and can resume your daily activities right after your treatment session.

Can Coolsculpting Make You Fatter?

Can Coolsculpting Make You Fatter? | Beverly Hills Medical SpaCoolSculpting is an FDA cleared procedure designed to help you lose fat in targeted areas where unsightly bulges are showing. It cannot make you fatter because it eliminates the treated fat cells permanently. Although it is not a weight loss procedure, CoolSculpting is a proven and effective fat loss treatment. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting non-invasive body contouring and fat reduction procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.  

 

How does it work?

The unique cooling process of CoolSculpting will freeze the fat in the treated sites, causing the unwanted and stubborn fat cells to gradually disintegrate. These dead cells will then exit the body through the natural metabolic process over a period of several weeks, leaving a slimmer and contoured appearance in the treated sites. 

CoolSculpting is most effectively used to reduce fat in areas that are usually resistant to diet and exercise, such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks, upper arms, back and buttocks. Unlike laser and other heat based techniques, CoolSculpting uses the innovative cryolipolysis process, which exposes the fat cells to low temperatures to destroy them. 

The surrounding skin tissue as well as the outer skin layer does not suffer any damage in this controlled and targeted treatment process. Therefore, CoolSculpting involves virtually no downtime. You can simply return to your regular routine or go back to office after your CoolSculpting treatment session.

 

Who is a Suitable Candidate?

People who are struggling with excess fat deposits in certain areas of the body, but are not excessively overweight or looking for weight loss may be the best candidates for CoolSculpting. Unless you want dramatic fat reduction with liposuction plastic surgery, you may choose CoolSculpting as a completely non-surgical fat reduction treatment. 

You will achieve fat loss and inch loss with CoolSculpting, but it is not designed to be a weight loss treatment. Fat cells, once eliminated from the treated areas, will not grow back in adults. However, you still need to be committed to a healthy and active lifestyle because the remaining fat cells in the body can still grow in size if you do not care about what you eat or how you handle your body fitness. 

 

Customized Procedure 

Your customized CoolSculpting treatment session will not last more than 40 or 45 minutes. The procedure involves no anesthesia, and no cuts, incisions or needles. You can relax and listen to music while the pain-free CoolSculpting process is in progress. 

Your treatment provider will apply a gel pad and an applicator cup to the affected area and use vacuum suction to draw the fatty tissue between the two panels. You may require two to four treatment sessions spaced a few weeks apart. Following the completion of your treatment sessions, you can notice improvement to your body contours and shape over two to four months. 

Results with CoolSculpting can be long lasting provided you remain committed to a healthy and active lifestyle. Clearly, there is no way CoolSculpting can make you fatter, but your own lifestyle habits can. Dr. Gary Motykie’s medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

Coolsculpting vs. Bodytite

Coolsculpting vs. Bodytite | Beverly Hills | Los AngelesCoolSculpting and Bodytite are two of the more popular body contouring procedures today for people who want to lose fat without surgery. While both treatments will create fat reduction, the technique involved in each procedure is different. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides safe and proven body sculpting treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting procedure is designed to freeze the fat off, and restore more youthful and slimmer contours in the treated areas. Stubborn fat pockets in areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, flanks, breasts, upper arms and calves can be effectively treated with CoolSculpting.

The provider will use the FDA cleared CoolSculpting device over the targeted areas and expose them to controlled cold temperatures. The cooling process will destroy the fat cells, which will eventually exit from the body through the natural metabolic way.

CoolSculpting is ideal for people who have stable and moderate body weight, but are struggling with unsightly fat bulges in certain areas. Unlike most other body contouring procedures and surgery, CoolSculpting is a more conservative and safe way to reduce fat tissue. The procedure involves no cuts, incisions, needles, heating, or cellular extraction. 

Bodytite

Bodytite is a unique process that harnesses thermal energy produced by radio frequency technique to eliminate unwanted fat deposits from targeted areas. Results with Bodytite can often be as good as liposuction surgery, but without the potential risks, discomfort and downtime that is usually associated with surgery. 

Bodytite will also not leave any conspicuous scarring, while creating highly desirable body contouring results. The device is powered by Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) which performs a 3D remodeling of the affected sites. Bodytite is more suited for removing stubborn fats in areas such as the thighs, love handles and abdomen, where the fat tissue is often harder to treat.

Bodytite works on the liposuction surgery principle, but makes use of radio frequency (RF) energy to melt the fat. Once the fat cells are loosened and melted, the provider can easily remove it with a thin cannula. This ensures that the patient will experience minimal tissue trauma and reduced post-treatment inflammation, discomfort and downtime. 

In addition to fat reduction, Bodytite procedure also works to tighten the loose skin and tissue in the treated areas. Controlled RF heat exposure in these areas will create tightening of the tissue from within. Results are more uniform looking because a larger surface area can be treated at one time. 

Which Treatment is Better?

Both CoolSculpting and Bodytite offer their own advantages, and patients can choose the more appropriate procedure according to their personal aesthetic goals and body condition. The treatment provider will help the patient determine the right choice for them. 

In general, Bodytite could be more suitable where the patient needs both fat reduction and toning up of the loose skin, while being willing to undergo a relatively more intensive treatment. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, is an excellent choice for patients seeking fat reduction in a completely non-invasive manner.

Does fat freezing with Coolsculpting work?

Does Coolsculpting work? 

B&A-Stevens-FL-2Set-1yr-Back-LoResCoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared form of cosmetic reduction of the excess fat. The process is clinically called cryolipolysis. This procedure uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells and freeze the fat off. Studies have shown that cold causes damage only to the fat cells at first. Therefore there is absolutely no damage to the underlying tissue or the skin.  

During this procedure, the provider vacuums the skin above the area of fatty tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperatures numb the area, and you may feel a mild cooling sensation.  

B&A-Stevens-INTH-2Set-8wk-LoResMost CoolSculpting procedures are completed within an hour. Since there is no damage to the skin or the underlying tissue, the patients do not require any recovery time. After the completion of the procedure, it takes around four to six months for the fat cells to get expelled from the body. During this period, you will lose fat significantly (patients on average lose about 20 percent of the fat.)  

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.  

Is CoolSculpting Effective? 

Cryolipolysis has a very high rate of success. It is highly effective for eliminating areas of fat from the body, and has much lesser side effects in comparison to other procedures, such as liposuction. Although Coolsculpting can eliminate areas of fat, it is important to understand that it is not a miracle cure, and you will not lose a very large amount of fat. 

B&A-Stevens-AB-2Set-16wk-LoResThis fat reduction procedure might not be suitable for everybody, and some people may have more side effects than others. Lifestyle and several other factors also play a vital role.  

Furthermore, you cannot expect much fat loss while undergoing Coolsculpting if you continue to eat an unhealthy diet and have a sedentary lifestyle. This procedure cannot tighten your loose skin. If the skin has stretched around fatty buildups, you may have excess skin left after the fat is eliminated. 

What does the Research say? 

Researchers consider CoolSculpting to be a relatively effective and safe treatment for eliminating some areas of fat.  

A review published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 2015 examined 19 previous studies of cryolipolysis. This study revealed that when fat reduction was measured with a caliper, a tool similar to a ruler, people lost an average of 14.67 to 28.5 percent of the fat in areas treated by Coolsculpting. When the studies measured the fat reduction with ultrasound, people experienced a weight loss of approximately 10.3 percent to 25.5 percent. 

B&A-Stevens-OUTH-2Set-8wk-LeftBack-LoResThe researchers did not find any kind of major health risk factors related to this procedure. There was no reduction in the function of the liver or lipid levels. This implies that cryolipolysis is only a cosmetic procedure. Besides, freezing away fat without making any changes to the lifestyle may not improve the overall health of any person. 

 Another 2015 review reported in the journal of Aesthetic Surgery looked at 16 studies and found that people had an average fat reduction of 19.55 percent. Massaging the area straightaway after treatment may increase fat reduction, though more research is required to support this belief. A study conducted in 2014 found an increase in fat reduction following massage 2 months after treatment.  

How long do the Results of CoolSculpting last? 

This procedure destroys your fat cells, and those particular cells will not return. However, killing the existing fat cells will not stop the new fat cells from appearing. Therefore, it is critical to maintain a healthy lifestyle to preserve the results of the CoolSculpting procedure.  

A person who eats an unhealthy diet and does not practice any form of exercise might soon see the growth of remaining fat cells in the body. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.

Freeze Fat & Slim Down For Holidays

Freeze Fat & Slim Down For Holidays | Beverly Hills | Los AngelesCoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive fat-reduction procedure around the world. Consider giving yourself the gift of CoolSculpting as the holidays approach. 

This advanced treatment can effectively freeze the fat to eliminate it from the waistline, stomach, and thighs in a non-surgical manner and without any involving any incisions, needles, medications, or anesthesia. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

The CoolSculpting Basics

CoolSculpting has received FDA clearance for eliminating undesirable fat using a targeted cooling process. This removes the stubborn fat that is resistant to even the most aggressive exercise and balanced diet plan. 

As cold can address fat cells without causing damage to the skin or adjacent tissue, it works powerfully via CoolSculpting to crystallize unwanted fat cells. The body naturally processes the crystallized fat over time, removes all dead fat cells, and helps create a slimmer and more contoured body shape. 

 

What are the Outcomes?

While the results of many cosmetic procedures are temporary, CoolSculpting offers long-term outcomes as the treated fat cells are removed permanently. As long as the patient continues to follow a healthy lifestyle, they can enjoy the results for a long time. 

CoolSculpting is the most effective way to lose fat when it is used to treat fat on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, flanks, upper arm, and around the bra region. Over a period of two to three weeks, the body will simply process out the dead fat cells, and the patient will slowly notice that their body appears sleeker and more sculpted!

CoolSculpting has become a highly trustworthy name in the cosmetic world as it offers outcomes with remarkable reliability. Over 5,500 clinical trials have been cautiously studies, and more than 5,000,000 CoolSculpting procedures have been undertaken globally. Hollywood celebrities have come out in large numbers to share their success stories with this procedure!

 

CoolSculpting Is Based in Science

CoolSculpting will enhance the appearance of the body using an innovative scientific process. This treatment delivers controlled cooling to effectively and delicately target the fat cells beneath the skin. Upon being treated, the fat cells freeze and die. 

Over the period of a few months, the body will naturally process and eliminate those dead fat cells, leaving the body slimmer and more contoured. This process involving controlled cooling can successfully eliminate fat that does not respond to other approaches to removal.

 

Painless, Non-invasive Procedure

CoolSculpting offers a painless, simple, and non-invasive way to remove undesirable fat, unlike liposuction and other treatments for fat removal. It is no surprise that CoolSculpting is the leading non-invasive fat-reduction procedure in the world, with over four million treatments undertaken across the world. 

The treatment is so simple that the patient can read, check email, listen to music, or even nap during the procedure. They will also be able to resume their routine activities immediately after the treatment. 

 

Identify Your Problem Areas

The flanks, chest, stomach, lower back, upper back, outer thighs, inner thighs, and knees are common sites to be treated with CoolSculpting. Due to its impressive versatility, CoolSculpting can remove fat from a number of locations on the body. No more love handles, no more muffin top, no more double chin!

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat Under Your Buttocks (Banana Roll)

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat Under Your Buttocks | Beverly HillsThe thighs and buttocks are two areas on the body where fat tends to accumulate the most. This not only makes clothing fit uncomfortably but may also lead to embarrassment. 

For people struggling with “thunder thighs” or too much “junk in the trunk,” CoolSculpting offers a proven treatment option to lose fat without surgery. 

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared procedure that does not involve the use of needles, chemicals, or anesthesia. Rather, it comprises a gel pad and applicator placed on the precise part of the body through which controlled cooling freezes and eliminates fat cells. As it reaches just underneath the skin’s surface, rather than deep organs, it is completely safe. 

This procedure has a high rate of success, even when addressing other areas of the body, including the banana roll zone. The patient will start to notice a significant improvement with a single 35 to 60-minute treatment, which will only improve with time.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting body contouring procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities.

 

Can It Help Improve My Banana Roll Zone?

For people unfamiliar with the term “banana roll,” this refers to the buttocks and thighs, both sites tend to store fat. The banana roll is quite common, especially on women.

During a consultation for CoolSculpting, there is a possibility that the doctor will stress the importance of exercise and a balanced diet in relation to this unique freeze-the-fat treatment option. 

Positive lifestyle changes can have a dramatic impact on the thighs and buttocks. The doctor can target those two areas with CoolSculpting, making a dramatic difference in how a person appears, and ultimately, feels. While the patient may notice some changes, they will see the complete effects of this innovative fat-reducing treatment in around two months. 

Can CoolSculpting, improve the banana roll zone? The answer is a resounding yes. The patient may accomplish their goals with a single treatment, but if necessary, the doctor can undertake several.

 

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction for the Buttocks

To eliminate fat from the banana roll area, CoolSculpting is more effective than liposuction. The reason is that eliminating fat from this area of the body with liposuction is challenging. 

Loose skin can develop after the surgery, even when the procedure is undertaken by an experienced surgeon. This issue seldom occurs with CoolSculpting. In fact, as a more gradual technique for fat cell removal, it helps preserve some of the connective tissue in the treated site. 

 

Are There Side Effects of Treating the Buttocks?

The patient may experience a few side effects when using CoolSculpting, to eliminate undesirable fat in the buttocks and thighs. 

The side-effects of this treatment are not only minimal, but they are also short lasting. The more common complaints include tugging, pinching, slight bruising, redness, inflammation, stinging, and sensitivity to touch. But any side effects are not enough to keep the patient down. 

To eliminate fat from the banana roll area of the body, this holistic treatment, known as CoolSculpting, is ideal. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting body contouring procedure.

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat Arms

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat Arms | Beverly Hills | Los AngelesCoolSculpting refers to a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that involves freezing and destroying fat cells using controlled cooling technology. The dead fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system.

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared for use on nine distinct treatment areas, including the chin, flanks (love handles), abdomen, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and chin. 

Over the years, CoolSculpting has emerged as the treatment of choice for many people who want to lose fat without surgery.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting body contouring procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities. 

 

How Does CoolSculpting Work on the Arms?

The unique contours of the upper arm undergo treatment using a specially designed CoolSculpting applicator. Different-sized applicator plates are used, depending on the size of the area being addressed. 

The CoolSculpting applicator delivers suction and controlled cooling to the treatment site with an aim to freeze the fat off. The most appropriate temperature for fat cell death (apoptosis) is between 39 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit. 

The subcutaneous layer of fat in the upper arm is cooled to the point that fat cells start to die. The surrounding skin, nerves, and muscles remain unharmed by the CoolSculpting procedure. 

 

How Many Treatments are Necessary?

A majority of patients need between one to three CoolSculpting treatments for optimal outcomes. The number of treatments necessary will depend on the individual’s response to the procedure. It will also depend on the extent of improvement that the patient hopes to accomplish.

 

Are You an Ideal Candidate for CoolSculpting on the Arms?

CoolSculpting for the arms offers optimal outcomes for patients with relatively taut, toned skin.

This procedure is not appropriate for people:

  • Are impacted by cold-induced medical issues such as cold urticaria, cryoglobulinemia, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
  • Have a high amount of adipose (fatty) tissue. These patients may be suitable candidates for liposuction or an arm lift.  
  • Have major skin laxity in the upper arms.

In addition, CoolSculpting is a suitable procedure for patients who are at, or close to their ideal weight. 

 

What to Expect During Treatment?

Prior to the treatment, the doctor will determine the number of applicators that will be required. Certain patients only need one large applicator. Yet others may require two small applicators. The provider then applies a gel pad and the applicator(s) to the arms.

Post-treatment massage can enhance the outcomes of CoolSculpting treatment by breaking down any frozen deep tissue.

 

Research Study on CoolSculpting for the Arms

Patients report an improved definition in their arms as well as a more proportionate appearance. According to a recent study, patients who received CoolSculpting on their arms accomplished a 15.3 percent reduction of subcutaneous fat after one treatment session.

Patients reported noticing up to a 25 percent reduction in the treatment area according to a 2015 clinical study of CoolSculpting treatments on the arms and inner thighs. 76.5 percent of the participants reported that they were satisfied with their outcomes after a three-month check-up. Patient satisfaction declines after a six-month duration, but this drop was linked to weight gain.  

 

Takeaway

CoolSculpting can help eliminate stubborn fatty pockets in the upper arms for patients who are at or very close to their optimal weight. 

A majority of people need between one to three CoolSculpting treatments to enjoy optimal outcomes. The patient can achieve up to 25 percent fat reduction in their arms after two or more CoolSculpting procedures.

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat on Male Chests (Pseudogynecomastia)

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat on Male Chests | Beverly HillsCoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It is the only procedure that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that simply cannot be removed by a balanced diet and regular exercise.

People who have heard or read about CoolSculpting may be familiar with its potential to reduce the number of fat cells on the love handles, abdomen, and other areas for women. However, CoolSculpting may also be a suitable treatment to help a man lose fat on the chest.

Pseudo-gynecomastia is a common condition which is characterized by excess male breast tissue. It can be a source of self-consciousness or embarrassment in men of all ages. 

This is usually a normal phenomenon, but pseudo-gynecomastia can negatively impact the quality of life for males, making them feel self-conscious about removing their shirts when swimming, at the beach, or during sexual activity. 

The treatment of pseudo-gynecomastia can improve the self-esteem and body image in men ranging from their teenage years, through their 60s, and sometimes even later. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting body contouring procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.

 

The Use of CoolSculpting on Male Chest

Women are not the only ones who suffer from undesirable fatty deposits. Therefore, CoolSculpting is not meant for use on the female body only. Even men who are used to hiding under layers of baggy clothing and have been considering male breast reduction may want to evaluate CoolSculpting closely. 

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure. The CoolSculpting provider may be able to use the innovative freeze-the-fat technology to eliminate stubborn fat tissue in the male chest without any downtime. 

While the most common treatment areas tend to be the love handles, tummy, and thighs, some specialists use CoolSculpting for male breast reduction. This is a non-label use as there is presently no CoolSculpting applicator meant specifically for the treatment of fat in the male chest area. 

 

Research Study Results

Researchers assessed ten men with pseudogynecomastia to understand whether non-surgical fat reduction through cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting) is a safe and successful option. These researchers were testing to determine if fatty tissue only on the chest area could be addressed with CoolSculpting to create an appealing outcome. 

Following two sessions of CoolSculpting spaced six weeks apart, the seven participants who completed the study experienced a visible reduction in fatty tissue thickness in the chest region treated with CoolSculpting in comparison to the untreated side of the chest. 

In relation to this, the authors of the study reported that adverse events were transient and mild. CoolSculpting did seem to be safe as well as effective in reducing male chest fat in moderate amounts. 

 

Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting?

The only way for a person to establish their candidacy is to book an initial consultation with a qualified CoolSculpting expert. In this meeting, the CoolSculpting specialist will discuss the patient’s eligibility for this treatment and the outcomes that they are likely to achieve. 

The candidacy and potential outcomes differ between people, whether they are receiving treatment for the male chest, female love handles, or any other area. 

 

About CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is not designed to be an alternative to traditional weight loss techniques of consuming a balanced diet and exercising regularly. However, the procedure can effectively tone the areas of the body that have been unresponsive to diet and exercise. 

The below mentioned highlights indicate why CoolSculpting is so popular:

  • One hour sessions requiring no anesthesia
  • Up to 25 percent fat reduction 
  • Treats the love handles, abdomen, back, thighs, and other regions of the body
  • Pain-free treatment
  • No scarring
  • No recovery
  • Natural looking results over the course of two to four months

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat on Your Thighs

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat on Your Thighs | Beverly HillsThe inner thighs are a body part that is notoriously challenging to shape and sculpt. Some people can practice inner thigh lifts until they are red in the face. However, in reality, the inner thigh shape is determined by genetics. 

How and where the body stores fat is a hereditary factor that is primarily beyond an individual’s control. For most women, the much-coveted “thigh gap” usually seen on models gracing covers and runways is unrealistic. 

For women and men who are healthy, fit, and within their ideal weight range, there are some transformative non-invasive procedures that can sculpt the inner thigh region without the need to undergo cosmetic surgery. Among these procedures, CoolSculpting is the most popular, FDA-cleared fat melting technique to help you lose fat in the thigh area. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting body contouring procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding locations.

 

CoolSculpting History

There is no doubt that CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is the most sought-after and transformative non-surgical procedure. The FDA initially cleared CoolSculpting for the elimination of fat pockets around the flanks (love handles) in 2010. Later in 2014, CoolSculpting was cleared by the FDA for the reduction of fat in the inner and outer thigh areas. 

CoolSculpting enjoyed almost immediate success as it presented a unique freeze-the-fat alternative to liposuction. 

According to clinical studies, this procedure reduced subcutaneous fat by up to 25 percent after a single treatment. Nearly 86 percent of the participants experienced an improvement in the treated site. 

 

Benefits of CoolSculpting for Thigh Fat Reduction

  • The CoolFit Advantage vacuum applicator enables the use of the device on the inner thighs.
  • A CoolSculpting procedure can be undertaken during the patient’s lunch break with no downtime. This is ideal for patients who want quick, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that creates real outcomes without extended recovery periods. 
  • The average person loses 25 percent of their inner thigh fat after a single session.
  • There is no risk of post-treatment issues with skin laxity as the fat reduction is slow, enabling the skin to retract
  • The CoolSculpting system is ideal for the treatment of smaller and more defined regions of fat accumulation around the inner thighs.

 

Outcomes of a Research Study

CoolSculpting is especially appropriate for inner thigh sculpting. According to one study, 45 participants between the ages of 18 and 65 received one 60-minute CoolSculpting treatment session for inner thighs, with the following results:

  • 93 percent of patients were content with the treatment.
  • 91 percent were likely to receive another treatment after the first.
  • 89 percent would inform a friend about undergoing inner thigh cryolipolysis.
  • 84 percent were happy with the outcome correlated with the less fat on their inner thighs after a single treatment session.

 

What to Expect After CoolSculpting of the Inner Thighs

CoolSculpting involves little to no recovery time. A majority of people can return to their normal activities right after the procedure. Sometimes there may be minor soreness or redness in the inner thighs. However, that will usually resolve within a few weeks.

The outcomes in the treated sites may be visible within three weeks of the procedure. Patients typically achieve optimal outcomes after two to three months, and the fat-flushing process goes on for up to six months after the initial treatment session. 

Around 79 percent of people reported a positive difference in the manner that their clothes fit after CoolSculpting, according to CoolSculpting market research. 

CoolSculpting is not meant to treat obesity and should not replace a healthy lifestyle. To maintain optimal results, it is important to consume a healthy diet and follow a regular exercise plan.

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat on Your Back/Bra Area

Use CoolSculpting to Reduce Fat on Your Back/Bra Area | Beverly HillsCryolipolysis refers to the scientific name for freezing fat. This process causes fat cells to crystallize, and these cells are then eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic processes. Most people know this treatment by its more popular name, Coolsculpting

This procedure is also recognized as a fit and healthy individual’s secret to eliminating stubborn back fat. Women, specifically have sought this procedure to remove a version of back fat called “bra bulge.” Patients can lose fat without undergoing any cuts, incisions or injections.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Where does back fat come from?

Tummy fat and love handles are target areas that are always visible in the mirror. However, back fat is more elusive. 

Three main groups of muscle known as the extensor, flexor and oblique, overlap or intersect to develop the human back. Those muscles and the skin begin to sag over time, creating pockets that fill with fat.  

Previously, liposuction was the only technique to eliminate these bulges. This surgical procedure can with a certain level of risk. The adjacent tissue or muscle could become damaged or scarred. This would obviously run contrary to the premise of plastic surgery. 

This issue created the need for an innovative and revolutionary procedure such as CoolSculpting. This treatment does not damage the surrounding tissue as only the fat is treated. There is no surgery, and CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment with minimal possibility of scarring. 

A well-qualified technician simply applies a hand-piece to the skin which sucks only fat into the device and freezes the fat cells off. 

 

How many treatments will it take?

Larger body areas, such as the back, usually require multiple treatments. There is no requirement for anesthesia, and the procedure does not involve any downtime. 

The treatment could be completed in just one session with a larger-sized applicator, and the patient can resume their routine right after the procedure. 

Fat in the upper back area may create bra bulge, which may be a woman’s concern. However, men are also equally likely to benefit from CoolSculpting. They too have backs with undesirable fat. 

 

How Long Does It Take to See the Effects on Bra Fat?

The patient will notice visible improvements within a few days of their CoolSculpting session. But after a few weeks or months, the outcomes will improve even further. This controlled cooling technique will initially kill the fat cells. 

However, to prevent the body from undergoing stress, more cells continue to die over time. The body then processes these annihilated cells and flushes them out through the liver and stools. Therefore, patients can expect to see the full outcomes of the procedure within around two months.

 

How Long Does it Take to Treat the Breast?

One treatment session will take between 35 to 60 minutes to complete, as with other body areas such as the upper arms, thighs, abdomen, and so on. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, they may choose to undergo more than one procedure, which will require the same amount of time. 

The patient can read a book, listen to music, text, or email on their phone, or even enjoy a short nap during their CoolSculpting treatment. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting.
