CoolSculpting® is a fast, reliable, and proven way to reduce fat all over the body without surgery!
This FDA-approved, fat-freezing procedure is a new non-invasive treatment that removes stubborn fat cells that resist normal efforts of diet and exercise. It is now the world’s number one non-invasive treatment, because it requires no downtime and can be used in almost any area of the body. Some of the more common areas of treatment are:
Inner and Outer thighs
By using a controlled cooling process, unwanted bulges containing fat cells die off. The result is a diminished amount of fat cells present in the targeted area. After the procedure, within the following weeks and months, the fat cells remaining condense. This reduces the fat layer under the tissue in the targeted area. This results in a body transformation you will love to show off!
This innovative and non-invasive procedure was created by Harvard scientists who observed that children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. Realizing that the popsicles were in fact freezing and eliminating the fat cells present through a process termed Cryolipolysis®, the Harvard scientists developed a way to achieve this on other parts of the body. Coolsculpting® allows for a safe and effective way to shape and transform your body without damaging the skin or surrounding tissues.
It is important to note that this process is about losing fat cells, not losing weight. While diet and exercise can help you lose weight, it only makes the fat cells present in your body smaller. Therefore, many patients undergo this procedure, because it helps rid their body of the stubborn fat cells that diet and exercise cannot eliminate. However, with Coolsculpting®, the number of fat cells present in the treated areas are reduced.
The First Step For your first visit with us, you’ll meet with our Coolsculpting® clinician for a complimentary consultation. During this consultation, the clinician will discuss the goals you wish to achieve for reshaping your body and what specific areas you wish to focus on. Since everyone’s body is different, we will tailor your treatment plan specifically to you.
Your Treatment Day For your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. Once the applicator is applied, vacuum applicators draw the targeted area into the applicator cup and a controlled cooling is delivered to the targeted tissue. The duration of the procedure depends on how many areas are treated, but typically a single treatment can take as little as 35 minutes. Since this procedure is minimal and requires no anesthesia, feel free to read, check emails or even take a nap!
This treatment does involve a cooling process, so it can be a little chilly. This sensation may feel intense initially, but will subside within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Also, the process involves a vacuum applicator to draw the targeted tissue into the applicator cup, so you may experience some pulling, tugging, or mild pinching. After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes.
CoolSculpting® is a very safe procedure. There have been no reported cases of skin injury to date. A common side effect is temporary numbness. Since this is quite common, a clinical study was conducted and showed that the nerves were not injured. Numbness goes away after a reasonable period of time. Since this procedure releases fat into the body, some people have questioned whether this fat load in the blood and lymphatic system could cause harm. Again, extensive clinical research has shown that this is no concern. Your body is perfectly capable of handling the slow, steady release of fat, just as it does when we eat a meal. Occasionally, some patients experience short-term side effects, but this typically resolves in a few days or weeks.
Typical side effects include: Temporary redness, Swelling, Blanching, Bruising, Firmness, Tingling, Stinging, Tenderness, Cramping, Aching, Itching andSkin sensitivity.
The better question might be who is not a good candidate! If you are obese, gaining weight, not in control of your weight, or pregnant, this is not appropriate for you at this time. A lifestyle change is needed. The best candidates are within 25 or so pounds of their ideal body weight and have isolated bulges of fat. The lower belly and flanks are perfect examples. The nature of the device does not allow treatment of large areas without considerable time and expense. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over
Each CoolSculpting® treatment is intended to result in a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area. After being frozen, the fat cells enter what is known as an apoptotic death sequence, which unfolds over weeks or months. The method is a gentle one, with inflammatory cells breaking the fat cells down, then sending the lipids to be processed by the body’s efficient lymphatic system. As the lipids leave, the thick fat layer thins accordingly. A medical study has shown that since this is a gradual process, with fat being slowly broken down, the loose lipids don’t negatively impact the blood or harm the liver.
Most patients who undergo Coolsculpting® achieve a 20% fat reduction in targeted areas. Every patient who receives this procedure experiences different results, but patients generally begin to see results as soon as 3 weeks, with the most dramatic results apparent within 3 months of the procedure. Your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional appointments, resulting in even more fat loss. Some patients, though, find that one treatment fully addresses their goals. Two sequential treatments at three-to six-month intervals are recommended.
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
It may be confusing to hear that reducing fat is not the same as losing weight. It’s all about what happens to fat cells. After dieting and weight loss, fat cells get smaller, but the number of fat cells stays the same. When weight is gained, fat cells get bigger. The CoolSculpting® fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20 to 25 percent. These fat cells are naturally processed and removed by the body, so they won’t migrate to another area. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.
While Liposuction has many benefits and advantages, there are numerous reasons why Coolsculpting® might be the best choice for you. These include:
The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror—long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you!
Patient results may vary
Can you imagine doing 20,000 squats or sit-ups in one session? This is not humanly possible, but with the help of new technology, you can build muscle and lose fat in as little as 30 minutes per treatment session. The Emsculpt machine is a non-invasive, FDA-approved device that is used to strengthen muscles and help break down fat. It uses High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) field technology, which is the same technology used in an MRI machine. The machine will induce powerful muscle contractions, which will then lead to increased muscle density, decrease volume, provide a better definition, and also improve muscle tone. This revolutionary technology has been helping many patients reach their body-contouring goals .
Emsculpt is an innovative body contouring device that is FDA-cleared. The device uses targeted energy to burn fat and build muscle on fat problem areas on the body. This is done by contracting muscles to help increase tone and speed up the process of fat metabolism. This non-surgical method is known for being pain-free and can be used to tone and define muscle in certain areas like the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs. Most individuals need a series of treatments to achieve their desired results.
Those looking for an innovative, non-surgical body-contouring option may consider Emsculpt. This treatment is designed to burn fat and build muscle. This helps define certain areas of the body. Those who want to sculpt their body (including sculpted abs, thighs, and glutes) can potentially benefit from the procedure. Patients with stubborn pockets of fat may be recommended for this treatment. Emsculpt is designed to help tone and build muscle on the body. It also can burn away stubborn pockets of fat that have not been eliminated through regular diet and exercise. However, it is not designed as a weight-loss or weight treatment procedure. Those treated with Emsculpt may lose some weight, but it will not be significant. For this reason, people considering this procedure are typically recommended to be around their target weight to experience the best results. We will perform an evaluation and examine your medical history to determine if it is right for you. Discuss your goals and expectations with us to find a treatment option that is right for you and your needs.
Emsculpt provides a means of eliminating stubborn pockets of fat and helping to build up muscle. Some people may have reached their weight loss goals, but pockets of fat may still remain in problem areas. In order to get rid of this fat, those specific areas need to be targeted. Continued regular diet and exercise on its own may not get rid of this fat. It offers patients a solution to this problem. Emsculpt uses targeted magnetic energy to eliminate fat cells and build up muscle. As a result, these areas of the body (for example, the abs, thighs, and glutes) become more toned and defined.
Emsculpt is an FDA-cleared device that helps individuals define muscle and burn fat. Emsculpt works by using targeted magnetic energy to contract muscles. Studies have shown that Emsculpt is a safe procedure that is also pain-free. One session of Emsculpt can be the equivalent of doing 20,000 sit-ups or squat reps. This means that the device can work more effectively than a physical training session to help improve your muscle tone.
Emsculpt is an effective procedure that does not produce harmful side effects. It is an FDA-cleared treatment procedure that is non-surgical. This means that individuals who undergo the treatment are able to return back to normal everyday activities following the procedure. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the procedure, it is best to discuss them with your technician before the procedure. Your technician can walk you through the treatment to ensure that you are comfortable with the treatment process.
Each patient has different goals when it comes to body contouring. Your technician can provide you with an individualized evaluation to determine what you need to achieve the desired results. Emsculpt is designed to be a treatment option done over the course of several weeks with multiple treatment sessions. The majority of patients require more than one treatment session to achieve their desired results. Some patients require only a couple of treatment sessions. On average, 4-8 treatment sessions are needed for desired results in each area. How many treatment sessions are needed also depends on how many different areas of the body are treated.
Emsculpt is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared body-sculpting option that provides patients with a comfortable experience. Since Emsculpt is noninvasive, individuals are able to return to their normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. Patients do not experience any harmful side effects and the process is comfortable. Some patients report a tugging sensation but, after the procedure is completed, the feeling vanishes. Patients do not experience the warm, cold, or tingling sensations that may be present in other treatments. Those who have received Emsculpt treatment do not have to worry about limiting daily activities or scheduling off from work. Because of this minimal recovery time, Emsculpt is a preferred choice.
Results from Emsculpt begin to develop as soon as the treatment process is completed. However, results may not be visible right away. This is due to the body breaking down the fat cells, as well as building muscle. Once a few weeks have passed, results will begin to be visible. This may be around the two- to six-week mark from the first treatment session. Some results may be visible within a few days. Some patients report that they are able to notice changes in their abdomen area a few days following treatment. The results may continue to develop over a six-month time frame. How many treatment sessions are needed varies depending on the individual and their desired results.
Emsculpt is designed to eradicate fat cells and build up muscle mass. The fat cells that have been metabolized due to the Emsculpt treatment are permanently destroyed. Muscle mass gained by the Emsculpt procedure may not be permanent. Additional periodic treatment sessions may be recommended in order to maintain the results achieved. Muscle mass can start to fade after the six-month mark. Maintaining a healthy diet and regularly exercising can minimize the effects of fading. Significant weight gain can cause the muscle mass gained to deteriorate more rapidly.
Emsculpt is a device that uses targeted energy to help build and tone muscle. The device does so by also helping quickly burn fat in that area. While the intended goal of Emsculpt is not to tighten the skin, skin tightening may happen after treatment. This is due to the skin becoming more defined and toned. If you are looking for a procedure specifically designed to tighten up areas of your skin, you may want to discuss other options such as Exilis with your technician. Tell your technician what your goals are for your body, and they will be able to recommend a treatment option best for you and your needs.
As with any cosmetic procedure, results may vary. This is because each body, as well as each lifestyle, is different. It is designed to permanently get rid of fat cells in stubborn areas of the body. It is also designed to help build up muscle mass in those areas. This helps define and tone muscle in certain areas. The results may become visibly noticeable over the course of several weeks. Muscle mass may lessen over time. Periodic treatment sessions (usually 1 session every 4-6 months) are generally recommended to maintain muscle mass, in addition to keeping up a healthy lifestyle. Emsculpt is not designed as a permanent solution for gaining muscle mass. However, it can aid the development of permanent muscle mass, as well as muscle definition. Rapid weight gain can cause muscle mass to deteriorate more rapidly. It is not designed to be a weight loss solution and is designed to target stubborn areas of fat.
The Emsella™ Chair is a new non-invasive electromagnetic device with FDA clearance to restore pelvic floor muscle and neuromuscular control for intimate health and urinary incontinence in women AND men, fully clothed. In strengthening these muscles, Emsella™ significantly reduces the symptoms related to incontinence. In addition, a stronger pelvic floor reduces nocturia – waking up in the night to void – and can even improve sexual satisfaction.
The pelvic floor includes ten muscles that directly support the bladder and male and female sex organs. For those suffering from poor sexual function and/or leaking, the solution is the same. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which strengthens the bladder muscles and ability to hold fluids in, along with tightening the muscles needed for erectile function and ejaculation control in men, and tightening the muscles supporting the vaginal canal. Stronger pelvic floor muscles also means increased blood flow, resulting in improved bladder control and improved sexual sensation. Because the Emsella delivers the equivalent of 11,200 kegel contractions in 28 minutes, the solution is clear: Emsella is the preferred non-invasive, non-surgical treatment method for incontinence and intimate health in men and women.
Urinary Incontinence is defined by any accidental loss of urine from the bladder. It affects up to one-third of women AND men in the United States. Although more commonly experienced in females than males, incontinence is unpleasant regardless of gender. Common causes include: age, childbirth, or falling hormone levels. Whatever the case, it makes physical activity or even regular movements like sneezing, laughing, or coughing an uncomfortable experience.
The EMSELLA from BTL Aesthetics is the first device of it’s kind – an FDA cleared chair that uses a high-intensity electromagnetic field (similar to an MRI) to activate motor neurons in the pelvic floor and treat urinary incontinence.
Using HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) field to stimulate and contract the pelvic floor muscles, the Emsella strengthens this pelvic floor and surrounding tissues for improved tightness in the area.
By strengthening the pelvic floor, sufferers of Stress and Urge Incontinence see great improvements. These sufferers lose or have weakened control over the urinary sphincter, and Emsella restores the strength to those muscles and tissues.
Tne 28 minute session will induce 11,200 contractions, the equivalent of performing 11,200 Kegel exercises. The BTL Emsella is a disruptive technology to traditional Urogynecological treatments:
The pelvic floor muscles form the base of the group of muscles commonly called the ‘core’. These muscles work with the deep abdominal (abs) and back muscles and the diaphragm (breathing muscle) to support the spine and control the pressure inside the stomach. When combined with the HIFEM Technology of Emsculpt to strengthen the entire “Core to Floor”, patients describe the benefits to be even greater than with just Emsella alone.
After receiving their treatments using the Emsella, patients often express that they experience a buzzing or tingling during pelvic floor muscle contractions. Most of our patients remark that it is a feeling unlike any other. You may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.
BTL’s Emsella chair is a unique solution for urinary incontinence because of its effectiveness. This product uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic field technology to stimulate your muscles to contact in your pelvic floor. But unlike performing regular Kegel exercises, the stimulation occurs at a pace higher than the time it takes for your muscles to relax, thereby intensifying the efficacy in strengthening the pelvic floor. When prescribed an exercise routine of Kegels, patients find they lose interest or fail to establish a habit of performing these exercises. Compare this to sitting in the Emsella chair for 28 minutes, which causes 11,200 contractions in this short period of time.
After 6 treatments:
The best part about the Emsella is that this all happens fully clothed. You don’t need to change into gym clothes, don’t have to worry about breaking a sweat, and don’t have to worry about getting undressed for any embarrassing or uncomfortable visit with the doctor. The electromagnetic field passes harmlessly through your clothes to stimulate the pelvic floor, all while you sit and relax. This is the ultimate in noninvasive procedures.
Another great perk of choosing the Emsella chair treatment is that you can immediately return to your normal activities after each session. Your pelvic muscles will be strengthened and increase in size, thus giving your bladder the support it needs. Your daily routine will not be disrupted
Most of our patients undergo a series of six treatments — two per week for three weeks. Your results gradually reveal themselves during this time as your pelvic floor becomes stronger with each treatment. In the end, the BTL EMSELLA has a 95% satisfaction rate, with patients reporting a significant improvement in their quality of life.
