Nonsurgical fat removal treatments minimize stubborn areas of fat without incisions or extensive downtime. Fat removal treatments are outpatient procedures, so you can undergo treatment at Medical Aesthetics & Laser without visiting another facility. These safe, comfortable treatments typically take less than one hour and require little-to-no downtime.
The two most popular fat removal treatments at Medical Aesthetics & Laser are:
CoolSculpting uses cryotherapy to target hard-to-remove pockets of fat. Cryotherapy is the process of freezing fat cells. Once frozen, the fat cells die. Your body’s natural lymphatic process removes the cells, which prevent them from returning. CoolSculpting treatments take about 30-60 minutes, depending on the areas you treat.
The abdomen, flanks, back, buttocks, and underneath the chin are common areas that CoolSculpting treats. Within 12-16 weeks*, your treatment areas should see visible fat loss.
CoolTone is a muscle-enhancing treatment that can tone and tighten your abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The device works by stimulating thousands of muscle contractions. CoolTone takes just 60 minutes and requires no downtime, so you can resume your normal activities right away. Most men and women see visible improvements within four weeks and up to six months*.
Kybella is an injectable treatment that destroys fat cells to reduce fat beneath the chin. You can experience bruising and swelling after treatment, but these effects should subside within a few days. Most patients need two treatments and begin to see results within 12 weeks* of their first visit.
The results of fat removal treatments often depend on the type you choose. In general, removed fat cells can’t return. However, new fat cells can develop. This is why the aesthetic team at Medical Aesthetics & Laser never recommends nonsurgical fat removal treatments as weight loss solutions.
Nonsurgical fat removal is ideal for individuals who are already within an average weight range for their height. If you have small pockets of fat that simply won’t budge. CoolSculpting, CoolTone, or Kybella may be right for you. The team can also combine these treatments for a full facial and body contouring solution.
