CoolSculpting targets body areas where fat cells are deposited and stored, such as the waist, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
Excess fatty pockets in these “problem areas” are usually unresponsive to reduction via healthy lifestyle changes. They often lead to unsightly bulges and compromised body contours, such as “muffin tops” or “love handles.”
CoolSculpting is distinct from many heat-based technologies as it is powered by a revolutionary process called cryolipolysis. This process involves the freezing and disintegration of fat cells within stubborn fatty pockets.
No Down Time
Once the cells have been frozen, the body absorbs them through its natural metabolic processes. This procedure does not cause damage to the outer skin layers (epidermis) or the adjacent tissues. This reduces post-treatment healing time, and patients can return to their routine activities right after the procedure.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin provides CoolSculpting body contouring to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding locations.
CoolSculpting is even more Effective with CoolAdvantage
The CoolSculpting system is a revolutionary technology in the area of non-invasive body contouring.
It delivers predictable, safe, and effective fat reduction without the need for invasive liposuction or downtime. And now with the introduction of the new and innovative CoolSculpting workstation called CoolAdvantage, patients can achieve their body contouring goals even more effectively than before.
The CoolAdvantage is a robust fat reduction system that provides patients with the same excellent outcomes as the original CoolSculpting technology. In addition, it offers shorter treatment times and higher comfort than ever before.
Why is CoolAdvantage even Better than CoolSculpting
It used to be almost unthinkable for many people that a safe and effective procedure such as CoolSculpting can be improved further. But CoolAdvantage does exactly that.
CoolAdvantage provides patients with the same effective outcomes as CoolSculpting, but with many key benefits including:
- Nearly 50 percent faster treatment time: The procedure takes only 35 minutes rather than one hour!
- Same effective outcomes in stubborn “problem areas.”
- Almost 45 percent more comfort than an already painless CoolSculpting treatment
- No need for scalpels, anesthesia, incisions, or traumatic suction
- No risk of complications
- No post-treatment recovery period
- No potential discomfort or burning
- Only one treatment necessary for sustainable outcomes
How CoolAdvantage Works
Similar to CoolSculpting, CoolAdvantage is also designed to address persistent fatty deposits that develop in traditional “problem areas” such as the waist, abdomen, buttocks, flanks, and thighs. It is particularly challenging to remove fatty deposits in these areas through diet and exercise alone.
Other technologies involve suctioning out the fat (liposuction) through surgical incisions or melting the fatty tissue (with the risk or burns and harm to surrounding tissue). But CoolAdvantage uses the power of cold to freeze undesirable fat cells without any downtime, risks, or side-effects.
CoolAdvantage is based on a process called cryolipolysis, which has been developed by Harvard scientists. It cools the fat cells until they freeze and the body subsequently absorbs these dying fat cells through its natural metabolic processes.
Consequently, the patient achieves a toned and taut body with smooth, sculpted, and aesthetic curves, rather than unsightly bulges.
CoolAdvantage offers patients these amazing outcomes with an innovative new applicator that allows it to provide effective body contouring but with reduced treatment times and even more comfort.
Similar to CoolSculpting, a majority of patients experience their CoolAdvantage outcomes within three weeks. Optimal results typically become noticeable within two to four months.
