Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatment Options

September 26, 2022 by A Younger You

Body Contouring

Did you know that there are several body sculpting options that don't involve surgery? With minimally invasive, non-surgical body contouring, you won't have to deal with the intrusion, discomfort, or expense that traditional surgical procedures can bring. You also won't have a long period of recovery time.

At A Younger You Medical Spa, we are proud to offer this type of treatment to our patients. Does non-surgical body contouring work? The results speak for themselves! CoolSculpting Elite is one of the most effective fat reduction treatments available, and our patients rave about their experiences with it.

CoolSculpting Elite Body Contouring Without Surgery

Many of our patients who come to us looking for body contouring treatment do so because they have areas on their bodies that don't respond to diet or exercise. They're in good overall physical health and just have stubborn pockets of fat that will not budge, no matter what they do.

This is where non-surgical body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting Elite come in. CoolSculpting Elite is non-invasive, safe, and best of all, it really works. This solution targets fat cells and destroys them permanently. The cells are frozen and eliminated, never to return.

For our patients who have tried hours of workout routines to get rid of the fat, or for those who don't have the time to, this body sculpting treatment is often the answer they've been waiting for. If you've heard in the past that once fat cells appear on the body, they will never go away, you should know that that's no longer true.

How Does Non-Surgical Body Contouring Work with CoolSculpting Elite?

This fat reduction treatment is approved by the FDA to target fat cells and sculpt areas of the body. When cells are frozen with the CoolSculpting Elite device, they die and are gradually metabolized by the body naturally, then eliminated.

Does non-surgical body contouring work? Yes! It targets fat cells under the skin and treats them without damaging the skin. This revolutionary treatment also won't damage any other tissues around the treatment area.

This kind of selective fat cell-freezing can reduce fat deposits in a treatment area by up to 25% in as little as one treatment session.

CoolSculpting was invented after two scientists from Harvard University noticed that children who frequently ate popsicles ended up developing dimples in their cheeks — areas where fat deposits had been reduced so much that it resulted in a “contouring” of those areas of the cheeks.

The scientists concluded that the frosty temperature of the popsicles froze the fat cells in the cheeks, destroying them and leading to their elimination by the body. The scientists also noted that although the fat had been destroyed, the other tissue and skin in the cheeks of the children weren't harmed in any way.

The result of these findings became the foundation of cryolipolysis, the freezing of fat that is now the power behind CoolSculpting.

What Areas Can Non-Surgical Body Contouring Treatment Target?

CoolSculpting Elite offers a wide variety of treatment options and benefits for our patients with areas of stubborn fat. Some of the areas we treat most often include:

  • The hips
  • The upper thighs
  • The abdomen
  • The back
  • Under the chin
  • The upper arms
  • Love handles

It's important to understand that this is not a solution for people who are struggling with obesity. It's not designed to be a generalized, overall weight loss solution.

Alternatively, people who have stubborn pockets of fat in specific little areas and don't want to undergo liposuction can get great results with non-surgical body contouring treatment.

What Are Treatment Sessions Like?

When you arrive for your CoolSculpting appointment, we'll take you back to our treatment room, where you can sit back and relax. We'll set up the treatment, and use a handheld device to gently target the treatment area.

You will feel a cooling sensation on your skin, but that's it. There is no invasive procedure, in-depth preparation, or downtime required after treatment, so you'll be able to go right back to your normal day after you leave your appointment.

Results: What to Expect After Treatment

Results vary from one patient to another; however, most patients notice improvements in as few as three weeks after their initial treatment. The most noticeable results are visible after about eight weeks post-treatment.

The fat cells in the treated area continue to die off and be eliminated by the body for up to six months following a treatment. The end result is a more sculpted body for you to enjoy.

Why Choose CoolSculpting Elite Non-Surgical Body Contouring?

There are many reasons why our patients keep returning for this treatment on a variety of areas of the body that they want to tone and sculpt. Some of the most common benefits of CoolSculpting Elite are:

  • The results are long-lasting
