Here, we delve into the world of body contouring treatments and explore three remarkable options offered in-clinic: SculpSure, CoolSculpting Elite, and Kybella. Whether you’re aiming to shed unwanted fat or achieve a sculpted jawline, we’ll guide you through the pros and cons of each treatment, leaving you informed and empowered to make the best choice for your unique goals.
SculpSure: Reshaping Your Reality
When it comes to non-invasive body contouring, SculpSure is a favorite among our medical aestheticians. Equipped with advanced laser technology, SculpSure targets stubborn fat cells beneath the skin’s surface, paving the way to a more contoured you. By emitting controlled heat into the treatment area, SculpSure effectively destroys fat cells, which are later eliminated by the body’s natural processes. This process, known as lipolysis, delivers outstanding results without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
The treatment is delivered via frames that are adhered to the body in the target areas you and your provider decide to treat. These applicators deliver bursts of controlled laser energy, gently heating the fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. The innovative technology of SculpSure ensures that surrounding tissues remain unharmed, while effectively disrupting and destroying those stubborn fat cells. The treatment itself typically lasts around 25 minutes and is well-tolerated by our clients. One of the many advantages of SculpSure is its minimal downtime, allowing you to continue with your daily activities almost immediately after your session. Some individuals may experience mild redness, warmth, or swelling in the treated area, but these sensations generally subside within a few hours.
One of the standout advantages of SculpSure is its ability to customize treatment plans according to individual needs. In a single session, up to four areas can be targeted with precision, allowing for a truly personalized approach. Furthermore, SculpSure’s versatility enables it to address various problem areas, such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and more. However, it’s important to note that SculpSure may be less effective for larger fat deposits, and several sessions may be required to achieve optimal results.
Why We Love It:
- Customizable to specific target areas
- Very quick treatment sessions
- Little to no downtime
CoolSculpting Elite: Elite Efficacy, Zero Downtime
If you seek a non-surgical solution for submental fat, or desire to contour specific pockets of your body with precision, CoolSculpting Elite is an excellent choice. Utilizing a revolutionary cooling process known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting Elite effectively freezes targeted fat cells, causing them to crystallize and gradually break down. Over time, your body gently eliminates these fat cells, leaving you with a refined, more sculpted appearance. CoolSculpting Elite has been proven to eliminate up to 20-25% of fat, which is an increase over the 18-20% elimination from the original CoolSculpting model.
After a complimentary consultation, your medical aesthetician will position the CoolSculpting Elite applicators precisely on the targeted areas of your body, based on your desired outcome. These applicators utilize advanced cooling technology to gently freeze the underlying fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. As the cooling process commences, you may experience a mild cold sensation, quickly giving way to a feeling of numbing in the treated area. The duration of a CoolSculpting Elite treatment session varies depending on the areas being treated, and you are free to relax, read, or even catch up on work during the procedure. Once the allotted time has passed, the applicators are removed, and you can immediately resume your daily activities with minimal interruption. Some individuals may experience temporary side effects such as redness, bruising, or numbness, but these typically resolve on their own within a few days.
One of CoolSculpting Elite’s key advantages lies in its ability to specifically target areas. This precision ensures that treatment is concentrated exactly where you desire, be it the submental (double chin) region or other problem areas. Moreover, the treatment requires no incisions, anesthesia, or needles, making it an ideal option for individuals seeking a non-invasive approach. However, it is important to note that multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome, as the process of fat elimination is gradual.
Why We Love It:
- 20% – 25% Fat Reduction – more than the original CoolSculpting treatment!
- Can treat 9 areas of the body
- Little to no downtime
Kybella: Redefining Chin Profiles
Dreaming of a sleek, defined jawline? Kybella offers an innovative solution specifically designed to address submental fat, or the notorious “double chin.” By harnessing the power of deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body to break down fat, Kybella effectively destroys fat cells in the chin area. In turn, a more contoured and defined jawline emerges, helping you achieve the confidence you deserve.
One of the remarkable advantages of Kybella lies in its permanent results. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Although individual treatment plans may vary, multiple sessions spaced over several months are typically required to achieve the desired outcome. It is essential to remember that Kybella is approved solely for submental fat reduction and may not be suitable for other areas of the body.
Kybella is administered by injection with one of our medical doctors, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners. The procedure typically takes about 15 to 20 minutes, with the number of treatments varying depending on individual goals and desired outcomes. After a Kybella session, it is normal to experience some swelling, redness, and tenderness in the treated area. These temporary side effects are a testament to the treatment’s transformative power and are usually well-tolerated by our clients. While downtime may vary for each individual, most individuals can return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure.
Why We Love It:
- Permanent submental fat reduction
- Great non-surgical alternative
- Quick treatment time
