Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures with No Downtime

It seems that as medical technologies improve, the biggest advancements take advantage of materials or actions that our body naturally produces or does. A great example of this trend is Coolsculpting and Ultrashape. Every patient of our doctor has a problem area where no matter how much he/she works out, diets and so forth - they cannot get rid of the fat in that area. These areas are typically around your waist line, inner thighs, lower back, chest, and upper arms. The most common cosmetic solution to this problem has been plastic surgery (liposuctions & tummy tucks are popular options) but lately new technologies allows dermatologists such as our doctor to help patients get rid of that unwanted fat without surgery.

Rather than cutting the skin and sucking the fat out, Coolsculpting and Ultrashape uses normal bodily functions to remove fat. This is the unique element of Coolsculpting and Ultrashape. Coolsculpting is a noninvasive procedure in which an applicator is used to "freeze the fat" without damaging neighboring tissue. Ultrashape is a noninvasive procedure that uses ultrasound wave pulses to destroy fat cells while protecting the neighboring tissues.

Coolsculpting and Ultrashape gets the same results as surgical options with no downtime or anesthesia. As you can already tell, there are many obvious advantages to a procedure like Coolsculpting and Ultrashape and that is why our doctor of the Dermatology Institute of Southern California decided to offer it to his patients.

It is important that the dermatological office that performs Coolsculpting and Ultrashape is experienced and follows the following steps closely:

  • The first step is the use of the applicator to directly freeze or destroy the fat cells of the “trouble spots,” (belly, chest, waist, lower back, arms, and thighs). The surrounding tissue should not be damaged in any way.
  • Because the procedure is non-invasive there are no serious side effects, no downtime and it can be done quickly in our doctor’s office. While the device works you can read a magazine or watch television.
  • Once the procedure is completed, the next step is actually performed by your body in a process called apoptosis. Apoptosis is a natural function your body and it happens every day when damaged cells are removed to make way for healthy new ones.
  • By allowing the body to correct its imperfections naturally, the results are better than they would be from an invasive procedure, not to mention the added benefits of no downtime and increased safety. Within a month, the results would be visible and long lasting, provided you maintain your routine of diet and exercise.

Allowing a new technology such as Coolsculpting and Ultrashape to work hand in hand with normal bodily functions is something that our doctor is very interested in. The results are often better and there are overall health benefits of a non-invasive procedure.
