CoolSculpting – Dr Z On The Morning Blend!
CoolSculpting is the newest and most comfortable way of freezing and permanently destroying fat cells in the world. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is not a surgery and therefore there are no incisions, no downtime and no risk. CoolSculpting is basically hanging out for about an hour at a time to treat each individual area or “island” of fat. This means that you can go back to work, go to your appointments or go home right after. In fact, you can even conduct business while you’re having a treatment.
An ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is someone who is close to their ideal body weight who has distinct islands of fat. The fat is sucked up into an applicator (with different sizes and shapes available for different areas) where it is very carefully and very comfortably frozen to the point where 20% – 25% of the fat cells don’t survive. The skin, the nerves and the blood vessels are all kept intact however, and not damaged.
Once the treatment is complete and the remaining “popsicle” of fat is released and massaged down, you are free to put your clothes back on and resume your daily activities. Over the next two to three months, that fat is resorbed by the body in a process known as “apoptosis” – a natural way of absorbing the breakdown of the fat cells which allows that area of fat to go away forever.
Some of the areas that can be treated include the upper abdomen, the lower abdomen, the armpits, upper arms, the inner thighs and outer thighs – any place that you can have a nice squeezable island of fat. Dr. Zimmerman has developed a new treatment to transformation protocol, where he can actually do multiple applications in the same visit to the office. In this way, he can treat larger areas more quickly for his patients.
CoolSculpting won’t hold you back from performing the regular activities of your life – in fact it’s a very comfortable treatment. Some people might feel a little bit achy afterwards, but most people can go right back to work or resume the normal activities of their day.
Dr. Zimmerman’s office had the first CoolSculpting unit in Las Vegas and has since performed over a thousand treatments. Las Vegas Laser & Lipo is now the first and only practice in NV to offer “DualSculpting” with 2 machines at once to double the speed of your treatments. More treatments = more transformation, more quickly! So now we are truly all about Treatment to Transformation!
