Does CoolSculpting Tighten Skin?

Does CoolSculpting Tighten Skin?

Prospective fat-freezing patients want to know, does CoolSculpting tighten skin? This is a common question providers hear at consultations. Many people want to know if the popular body contouring treatment will help reduce excess skin in the treatment area. After fat reduction treatments, like liposuction, some people struggle significantly with excess, sagging skin. Thankfully, new research shows that CoolSculpting does the opposite.

The new FDA clearance shows that CoolSculpting improves the appearance of lax tissue in the submental region and reduces stubborn neck and chin fat. This treatment provides people with a double solution to a double chin.

Clinical Evidence That CoolSculpting Tightens Skin

New clinical studies prove that CoolSculpting tightens skins. In one of the new studies, “Cryolipolysis and skin tightening,” The research shows that scientists evaluate CoolSculpting before and after images, finding a “noticeable skin tightening shown in clinical photographs.”

More proof is also found in patient survey data where patients were asked to assess changes to their skin texture and laxity after a CoolSculpting treatment. The study stated that both patients and investigators noted, “consistent improvement in skin texture and laxity for treatments to the outer thighs, abdomen, arms, and back.”

The study concluded, “consistent improvement in skin texture, laxity, and cellulite” results “after cryolipolysis.”

In the “Study to Evaluate Non-Invasive Subcutaneous Fat Reduction in the Submental Area Using Cryolipolysis,” patients received CoolSculpting to the submental region (the chin and neck area.) Of those patients, “77%… showed improved appearance of lax tissue and 75%… reported their chin looked more toned following treatment.”

CoolSculpting is FDA-Cleared to Tighten Skin

The academic findings won CoolSculpting its newest FDA clearance. According to a press release from Allergan, the makers of CoolSculpting, this treatment is the first and only non-surgical fat reduction technology to gain FDA clearance to improve the appearance of skin laxity in conjunction with submental fat or double chin treatments.

Am I the Right CoolSculpting Candidate?

Amazing as CoolSculpting sounds, thanks to its newest FDA clearance for improving skin laxity, this treatment is not suitable for everyone. The ideal CoolSculpting candidate is a healthy, active adult who struggles with diet and exercise-resistant fat in problem areas like the neck and chin region.

The best way to find out if you are the proper fat-freezing candidate is to schedule a no-obligation consultation with a reputable medical spa. During the consultation, you can speak in person with a knowledgeable treatment specialist. They can evaluate your body and determine if this popular treatment is proper for you.

Stubborn Fat | Understanding Diet and Exercise Resistant Fat

Stubborn Fat | Understanding Diet and Exercise Resistant Fat

Getting rid of stubborn fat is not as simple as some people may think. It can be extremely difficult. Our bodies are complex. There are many factors beyond the supposed “calories in, calories out” ideal that affect our weight. Gender, genetics, and even hormones can influence how and where our body collects weight. Those factors can also dictate how our body responds to diet and exercise.

Learn more about stubborn fat and discover why some fat resists healthy living, also how you can quickly rid yourself of stubborn fat for good.

CoolSculpting Targets Stubborn Fat >>

The Biology of Body Shape

Genetics, gender, and hormones are just a few factors determining the number of fat cells in our bodies and where they tend to collect. Once an individual reaches adulthood, the number of fat cells and their placement becomes fixed. Lifestyle can influence how much fat is stored in those fat cells, but it will not change the number of fat cells.

For many women, the body distributes more fat cells to the lower body. This fat distribution is to help prepare the female body for pregnancy. For men, the body distributes more fat in the upper part of the body. Not only does the body spread more fat to certain areas, but it also determines what fat cells will resist diet and exercise.

The Physiology of Stubborn Fat

Fat cells have two receptors. They are the Alpha-2 and Beta-2 receptors. The Alpha-2 receptors tell cells to store fat for later use. Beta-2 receptors tell them to break down and release fat for immediate use. Fat cells have either more Alpha-2 or Beta-2 receptors. If the fat cell has more Alpha-2, it will be more likely to resist diet and exercise. If it has more Beta-2, it will respond more efficiently to diet and exercise by burning fat quickly.

Unfortunately, the body areas with more fat cell distribution tend to have fat cells with more Alpha-2 receptors. For those people, their body not only stores more fat cells in the stomach area, but that the belly fat is predisposed to resist diet and exercise. The greater presence of Alpha-2 in those fat cells means getting rid of stubborn belly fat is nearly impossible for those individuals, no matter how much they diet or exercise.

Fat Reduction Options for Stubborn Fat Bulges

Fortunately, fat reduction treatments exist for people struggling with diet and exercise-resistant bulges. Liposuction and CoolSculpting offer safe, effective ways to eliminate persistent fat from problem areas like the stomach and thighs. Fat reduction treatments do not make the fat cells release fat. Instead, the treatments remove the entire fat cells entirely from the body. This process reduces the number of fat cells in a given area, leading to a drastic and noticeable reduction in fat.

CoolSculpting and CoolTone | The Best Body Contouring Treatments

CoolSculpting and CoolTone

CoolSculpting and CoolTone | The Best Body Contouring Treatments

CoolSculpting and CoolTone are the most popular body sculpting treatments available. The contouring treatments provide a way to achieve fat reduction and sculpted, firm muscles without surgery or excessive downtime. Read more to learn about CoolSculpting and CoolTone and how they are different to help you decide which treatment is best for you.

What is CoolTone?

CoolTone is a muscle-building treatment that builds, strengthens, and tones muscles in areas like the abdomen, buttocks, and legs. This treatment uses a magnetic muscle stimulating machine to induce powerful muscle contractions. The contractions are known as “supramaximal contractions,” and they are the equivalent of performing 20,000 lunges, crunches, or squats. CoolTone is a body contouring treatment most suited for healthy women and men who are at their ideal body weight, but still struggle with achieving those “washboard abs” or a “Brazilian butt lift.” CoolTone treatment results show through best on this individual because they are not obscured by excessive body fat.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment. This procedure reduces stubborn fat bulges without surgery or a lengthy recovery. CoolSculpting uses a scientific process known as Cryolipolysis, which is the cold-induced destruction of fat cells. During your treatment, your target fat bulges are subjected to precise, controlled cooling. The extreme temperatures will freeze the underlying fat cells, destroying them entirely. Weeks after treatment, your body will collect the dead fat cells and process them out of the body as a form of waste via the lymphatic system. This is how CoolSculpting provides such natural, long-term results for patients.

Much like Cooltone, CoolSculpting treatments work best on healthy men and women who struggle with diet and exercise-resistant fat cells. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment and should never be used to treat obesity. Instead, this treatment is used on adults who follow a healthy diet and exercise routine to achieve optimal fat reduction.

Combining CoolSculpting and CoolTone

Since CoolSculpting and CoolTone are sister treatments, it is always an excellent idea to get them done together. They complement one another. For patients, treating the abdomen with CoolSculpting will reduce stubborn belly fat and allow underlying muscles to show. Following that with a CoolTone treatment will help that patient achieve firm, defined abdominal muscles.

Each treatment helps magnify the other’s results, so it is no surprise that patients like to have these sister treatments done together. Another great reason to have them performed in tandem is to receive a package treatment deal. When you package CoolSculpting and CoolTone treatments together, you can save money on the overall treatment costs.

To learn more about package deals and how you can save on both CoolSculpting and CoolTone, schedule a complimentary consultation at the Skin + Laser Institute.

Coolsculpting After the COVID Crisis | Fat Freezing

Coolsculpting after the covid crisis at Laser + Skin Institute in Chatham, NJ

Coolsculpting After the Covid Crisis | Fat Freezing

Soon the COVID crisis will pass, and we will emerge from our houses with a new appreciation for our community and social interactions. One thing we will not appreciate is the bulge we packed on while we waited out the pandemic at home.

Social distancing is not great on the waistline. Being stuck at home, surrounded by family, and stressed out is the perfect storm for mindless eating. And stress eating. And eating because we are bored. And just like the holiday season, most of this eating is not healthy.

How to Contour Your Physique After COVID

Many medical spas are shuttering their doors out of precaution during the COVID pandemic. But things will soon be back to normal, and fat reduction treatments will be in high demand.

Liposuction is a popular fat reduction treatment. However, many people are intimidated by the thought of scalpels, stitches, general anesthesia, and lengthy recovery times. These people want a non-invasive alternative, and CoolSculpting is their top choice.

CoolSculpting is the most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment in the world. It incorporates advanced cooling technology to eliminate fat cells by freezing them to death. Treatments take 35 minutes, and the procedure requires little to no downtime. Best of all, CoolSculpting is safe and effective. Results appear within weeks, look natural, and are long-lasting. *

CoolSculpting is perfect for anyone who wants to quickly lose the extra bulge they gained while shut up in their home during the COVID shut down.
