Stubborn fat is one of the most common problems of people of all ages. No matter how many crunches you do or how much time you spend in the gym, you may still be bothered by stubborn love handles, a belly bulge, or a muffin top. Diet and exercise aren’t always effective on their own, and many people would rather not have an invasive surgery to address the fat. Fortunately, there is a solution to help you shed persistent fat without surgery, incisions or downtime.
Discover CoolSculpting – the latest procedure in body contouring. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring procedure that uses controlled cooling to “freeze fat” and reduce fat deposits. This procedure targets pockets of fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise – without surgery, incisions, or downtime. People in Northwest Florida can rely on the expertise of board certified plastic surgeon Dr Jacque LeBeau and his staff for this non-surgical alternative to liposuction and other surgery. Lebeau Clinic is the onlyCoolSculpting Certified Practice in Pensacola Florida. Many Men and women alike appreciate the convenience and efficiency of a CoolSculpting treatment session. Patients can easily come in for treatment during their lunch hour or before or after work.
What is CoolSculpting
The CoolSculpting procedure uses an innovative process called cryolipolysis™ to freeze fat cells. Targeted fat is then metabolized and eliminated as part of the body’s normal processes. Studies show that most people can reduce fat by 20 to 25% after just one CoolSculpting session.
We recommend CoolSculpting for people who are generally active and fit, but who are looking to remove fat around the waistline or thighs. Other common problem areas treated with CoolSculpting include “love handles,” a “muffin top,” “bra fat,” and inner and outer thighs. With the addition of the CoolSmooth™ applicator, patients with even small fat deposits can benefit. The results from CoolSculpting are permanent in the sense that the fat cells will not return. However, CoolSculpting does not prevent weight gain. Healthy eating and regular exercise are needed to maintain your results.
The Latest Applicators for the Best Results
The makers of CoolSulpting continue to improve on the treatment process with new applicators and innovations focusing on patient comfort and reduced treatment time. We’ve incorporated these new applicators into our practice, for quicker, more comfortable sessions – with the same great results. We are one of the few providers in the area who offer the CoolAdvantage applicators. The new CoolAdvantage cuts the treatment time in half.
The CoolMax applicator makes it even easier to get results on a larger treatment area (such as the abdomen or the back) in the same amount of time. The CoolMax applicator is also called a de-bulking treatment, since it is used for patients who want to de-bulk a localized area before sculpting it. CoolMax is the largest CoolSculpting applicator available, which is perfect for clients who want large amounts of fat deposits removed from their bodies. What happens during this body sculpting procedure is that a patient is de-bulked before being retreated with one of the smaller CoolSculpting applicators to start with body contouring.
The CoolMini applicator targets fat that causes a double chin and other small bulges. The CoolMini is designed to fit snugly below the chin and is cleared by the FDA to reduce submental fat – the kind that causes a double chin. Like other CoolSculpting applicators, the CoolMini kills fat cells with controlled cooling that doesn’t damage the skin or surrounding tissue.
What to Expect
During your procedure, a thin gel pad is applied to the treatment area to protect the skin. Then the CoolSculpting device is applied. Once activated, the device gently suctions the skin and fat up between 2 cooling panels, which deliver precise cooling. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other tissues in our bodies, so the cold causes them to slowly die off.
Initially, you feel intense cold, but after a short time, the area becomes numb. While CoolSculpting works, you can read a book or magazine, relax with your tablet, get some work done on your laptop, or take a nap. One treatment session of a single area requires about 35 minutes.
Some redness, swelling, tenderness, tingling, or bruising may result, but these are temporary. Most people return to work or their daily activities immediately afterward. Following treatment, your body’s metabolism will break down and flush out the dead fat cells. Fat reduction takes place over the next 3 to 4 months as the treated area literally shrinks. A single treatment has been shown to safely reduce up to 25% of fat. You can have additional treatments to achieve greater fat reduction.
