Fear no mirror. Look your best from every angle.If you’ve done all you can with diet and exercise, but some stubborn pockets of fat remain, you’re going to love CoolSculpting. It’s an innovative way to reduce stubborn bulges – without the hassle of a surgical procedure. By targeting and cooling unwanted fat cells, it achieves a visible reduction in the excess volume you want removed.
The Irresistible Benefits of using the CoolSculpting Procedure to Help Remove Your Excess Fat Include:
- No special diets
- No needles
- No supplements
- No surgery
- No downtime
- Great results
- Distal thigh
- Banana roll
Your CoolSculpting ProcedureYour CoolSculpting procedure will be performed entirely at our luxurious and welcoming office. During your treatment, you will be able to sit or lie down in a position that’s comfortable to you. From there, we will place the CoolSculpting device over your body. The device will draw the bulges of fat to two cooling panels, where it will freeze and ultimately destroy the excess cells. The entire procedure will last about an hour, and you can expect it to be completely comfortable. In fact, many of our patients spend their time reading, working on their laptops or simply relaxing – that’s how pleasant the treatment experience is. After about three weeks, you’ll start to see that your unwanted fat is visibly improved. And within three months, the full results will become apparent, once your body has completed the process of clearing the destroyed fat cells away. In general, most of our patients are very satisfied with their results after just one treatment, however you may require more than one session depending on how much fat you’re having removed, and how many treatment areas you’d like to address. Once you’ve achieved your desired results, you can expect your slim and contoured new body to last into future, as long as you continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Is CoolSculpting Right For You?CoolSculpting is a very safe, gentle and effective fat reduction procedure. As such, it is generally an ideal treatment for most of our clients who want to get rid of unsightly bulges of fat throughout the body – including on the abdomen, flanks, thighs and more. With that said, you should be close to your ideal weight and not currently pregnant or breastfeeding to be considered a candidate. As long as you meet those qualifications, there’s a very good chance that CoolSculpting can help you achieve the toned and streamlined body contour you want.
Cellulite ReductionAre you bothered by cellulite, that lumpy substance that makes the skin of your thighs and buttocks look like cottage cheese? We offer a cellulite solution using the accent system from alma lasers.
Cellulite is Not a Medical ConditionRather it is normal fat beneath the skin that appears bumpy. The “bumps” are caused when the fat pushes against the connective tissue beneath the skin causing the skin above it to pucker and look like cottage cheese. While cellulite is not harmful, many women feel it looks unsightly and want to get rid of it. This has created a big market for cellulite solutions including creams and other treatments. However, for many of these options, the marketing hype is bigger than the actual results.
Causes of CelluliteEven though cellulite is fat, it does not mean that you are overweight. Even thin women can have cellulite. However, if you are overweight, losing weight may actually reduce your cellulite. Your genes also play an important role with cellulite. The amount of cellulite that you have is also determined by the following factors:
- Total body fat
- Fad dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Poor diet
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormone changes
- Your skin’s thickness and color
