Candidates for CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an exciting, scientifically proven, new innovation in body contouring that may offer benefits to a wide range of individuals. You may be a candidate for CoolSculpting if you:
- Have pockets or bulges of unwanted fat and desire a slim and healthy looking appearance
- Are reluctant to undergo cosmetic surgery for body contouring
- Are a healthy size and weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that don’t go away with diet and exercise
As with any cosmetic procedure, Dr. Lacombe will personalize your Santa Rosa body contouring treatment to match your specific needs, desires and body type. Here is a general outline of the procedure:
- No preparation or anesthetic is required for this FDA-cleared procedure.
- A process known as Cryolipolysis™ cools and destroys targeted fat cells without causing damage to surrounding skin and tissue.
- 20% to 25% of the affected fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body during the months that follow the procedure, and they do not return.
- Although most patients see results with just one treatment, many return to our office to enhance their results or sculpt other areas of their bodies.
The Recovery & Results
One of the many benefits of nonsurgical alternatives to liposuction in Santa Rosa is the minimal recovery period. See why women and men are choosing this noninvasive answer to excess fat:
- Most patients return immediately to work following treatment.
- Sometimes slight redness and numbness is experienced in the treatment area, but this should dissipate in 2 to 3 hours.
- Visible improvement is gradual, with final results expected after 2 to 4 months. Many patients begin to see their reductions in 3 to 4 weeks following their CoolSculpting procedure.
- Treatment areas typically show about a 20% to 25% reduction in fat, which creates a smoother and firmer body contour.
- Patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight can expect to maintain their results indefinitely.
Women and men interested in seamless results from head to toe often combine CoolSculpting with one of our other nonsurgical procedures. Popular choices for complementary procedures include BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectable fillers and laser skin care treatments.
