Unwanted fat pockets in certain areas of the body such as hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, and neck can make the body contours appear uneven or unsightly. Women and men who seek non-surgical treatments to get rid of these stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise have a number of innovative options available today. One of the most popular fat reduction non-invasive options is CoolSculpting.
Another treatment option that adopts a radically different approach is UltraShape, but it is also designed to achieve the same aesthetic results as CoolSculpting. While CoolSculpting aims to freeze the fat in order to disintegrate unwanted fat cells, UltraShape heats up the fat to melt away the fat cells. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding areas can receive fat reduction treatments from Dr. Gary Motykie.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting is based on a unique fat cooling process that was developed by Harvard scientists to achieve results similar to liposuction, but without involving any cuts, incisions, or injections. The treatment provider will focus the cooling treatment over the targeted areas of the body where the fat needs to be reduced. The treatment will cause the fat cells to freeze, while leaving the healthy tissue unaffected.
This happens because the fat cells response more quickly to cold temperatures. Once these cells are frozen to their death, they will gradually disintegrate and get eliminated from the body in a natural way. The patient will lose fat in a natural and subtle way over a period of several months, and enhanced body contours will be restored. Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby locations for CoolSculpting.
How does UltraShape work?
UltraShape is the first and only FDA cleared non-invasive device that is based on ultrasound technology to improve body contours. Unlike CoolSculpting, the UltraShape procedure generates controlled heat through ultrasound energy in the targeted fat cells. Focused, pulsed ultrasound waves selectively and mechanically destroy unwanted fat cells to sculpt the body to a desired shape.
UltraShape differentiates itself from other traditional ultrasound based fat reduction treatments in its energy delivery system. In this procedure, ultrasound energy is transmitted in pulses, which allows for controlled increase in temperature (below 0.5° Celsius elevation). This causes instant and selective fat cell destruction in a non-thermal, mechanical manner.
Both CoolSculpting and UltraShape are “walk-in” procedures that do not involve any significant bruising, swelling, pain, or downtime. A single treatment session can be completed in about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area of treatment. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired aesthetic goals in both cases. Thousands of patients receive these treatments with very successful results every year.
Both treatments offer a non-invasive alternative to minimize localized fat deposits. Fat reduction is regular and homogeneous throughout the treated area. Results are measurable and long lasting, as long as the patient maintains an active lifestyle and balanced diet regimen. Patient comfort is maintained throughout the treatment, and no side effects or adverse events are reported in both CoolSculpting and UltraShape procedures in most cases.
