Non Surgical Body Contouring Procedure


Video Transcript
Narrator: All week, we have been working so hard to get us Summer ready, get ready for that bikini ride. We have a mom of four joining us this morning and who is ready to get in her bikini and she’s going to have a little help here, from Katrina Curran’s from Renew Body Sculpting and good morning to you. Thanks for being here this morning.

Katrina: Good morning.
Well, you contour bodies, that’s what you do and tell us what you want to be doing today.

Katrina: Well, at Renew Body Sculpting, we specialize in body contouring So we have two different devices that permanently kill fat, one of the devices is called coolsculpting. Coolsculpting uses a technique called Cryolipolysis, which allows us to basically go in and freeze the fat cells. When those fat cells freeze they expand just enough for it to destroy the cellular cycle and the fat cells basically burn out.

Narrator: Show us what you’re going to do and who would benefit from this?

Katrina: Okay. So, Ann came in to see us and she is a mommy of four, like she said, she’s got a cesarean scar and what happens typically with people they get a cesarean scar is, obviously the doctor makes an incision right here to deliver the baby. Well, when that heals, it has keylogging, it has some scar tissue and a lot of women just cannot work that ledge off. No matter what they do, there’s always this little ledge that’s left behind. So, what we’re able to do with coolsculpting is, we’ll go in and we’re going to actually attach an applicator and bring part of that ledge in but it also the fat that is sitting right over the top of it.

Narrator: Okay.

Katrina: It will to go in and we’re going to go ahead and adhere the applicator to it. We’re going to leave it on for about an hour and when we take it off, the area that has been basically treated, will have been frozen and numb. It will then take about eight weeks or so, for the final eight to twelve weeks and all the fat are no longer in that area. One treatment, twenty-five percent fat layer reduction.

Narrator: Right now, we’re showing before and after pictures, if you can just describe a little bit about what’s going on.

Katrina: Right. So, as you can see, that picture right there has a cesarean line and that’s after doing one treatment of coolsculpting sixty days later. Well, I think what’s important here for people to know is that, this is actually FDA approved and the key word that we have to say is that it is permanent.

Narrator: So, right now, explain what’s happening.

Katrina: Okay. So, we’re going to go ahead and attach the applicator. The applicator right now is pulling the fat in between those two cooling plates. Ann, are you okay?
Ann: Yeah.

Katrina: Good. We’re going to go ahead and start the treatment then. As you can see Melissa, when you look at the side of this, look how far in the fat has been pushed inside.

Narrator: So, you can’t see anything right now, it’s completely flat on the sides.

Katrina: Yes. So everything is now inside the applicator.
Narrator: Now, what is this going to feel like because, anytime you’re talking about freezing your skin, it sounds kind of scary but I don’t know, hopefully you can be picked off my mind. What does it feel like for you right now?

Ann: Just pressure and it’s not cold, right now it’s just, I just feel pressure of having my stomach all sucked into this device, it’s kind of uncomfortable.

Narrator: So, what can she expect today, is she going to be pretty sore today and for days to come?

Katrina: So, when, in about five minutes or so, as you see here on the machine itself, it has a timer on it.

Narrator: Okay.

Katrina: Once we get past that first five minutes, that’s when the actual area will have become frozen. So it’s going to feel like somebody stuck an ice pack on your skin. Once the area becomes numb, it’s going to be numb for the next forty-five, fifty minutes, she is going to sit here with really no feeling at all, she’s just going to have a feeling of numbness and slight pressure. When we remove the applicator in one hour, it will be interesting because, as you remove it, you’ll literally see the frozen, what we call the little stick of butter and those are the frozen fat cells that have been sucked up into this applicator.

Narrator:  And you are sure she is not going to feel pain?

Katrina: Then we’ll do a two-minute vigorous massage. The only painful part of this entire procedure is that massage, this is a little bit painful, you know, but of course, the pain is (inaudible 26:28)

Narrator: Everyone want to know the price; can you give us that really quick.

Katrina: Absolutely. So typically, a large applicator is fifteen hundred, small applicator is seven hundred and fifty and then, we have specials where you combine applicators things like that.

Is It An Alternative For Liposuction?

CoolSculpting vs Liposuction – Which one is better?

Coolsculpting is a revolutionary new technology, that’s going to change the face of plastic surgery, for the next decade. For years and years and years, patients have come to me, wanting to have their fat reduced, but were afraid to have surgery and have looked at all kinds of videos on the internet, about liposuction and how it is performed.

This has brought a lot of fear and trepidation into patient’s minds, about the kinds of results that they would get, the kind of downtime that they would have, the irregularities that they have seen on the Internet, underneath the skin and contour deformance. While liposuction is still the gold standard for bi-contouring and done by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, who has the artistic skill to do liposuction correctly, it is only unquestionably the gold standard and will produce unbelievable results.

Safe and Effective
Coolsculpting however, is a technology which is going to allow people to have their fats reduced in problem areas, in bulge areas without the associated downturn, anesthesia or an operation. This is a technology that we have been chasing for the last two decades, to be able to reduce fat without go into the operating room and having surgery.

Cool-sculpting is a revolutionary technology, which freezes the fat through the skin, without damaging the skin and reduces the amount of fat cells in the area of treatment, by about twenty to twenty-five percent per treatment. Now, what does this mean? This means that during a one-hour procedure, you can have your flank handles shrunk twenty-five percent and if you come back for a second treatment, fifty percent.

Now, the treatment only takes one hour. We have here at the clinic, two cool-sculpting machines. So, you can have both flanks done at the same time, during your lunch hour and then go back to work. There’s virtually no downtime, except for the one hour of treatment that you are exposed to.

The treatment is not painful, you can watch a movie, talk on your cell phone, work on your computer if you like, during the one-hour and over the next three months, you will gradually see the fat shrink, so that the labor the fact that you have, is about twenty-five percent smaller, than it was to begin with.

Now, for many busy executives, busy people in offices, who don’t have the luxury of taking time off work, everyone can take off a couple of hours and over a series of treatments, can have remarkable body contouring results, with this new technology. This technology works, we have for years looked for a technology that really worked and we finally have one.

Did The Fat Loss Procedure Work?


Video Transcript:
I just have this problem area, which is kind of a see, for me it’s right here. It’s kind of done right up there and I’d like to do better here. If this thing goes and I’ll be updating us on the procedure and we’ll see what happens. Get rid of this.

It’s been five days since the coolsculpting and the redness obviously is gone but we still have some information and that’s (inaudible 15:37) and over time, what’s going to happen if this should decrease and as the fat goes away and you’ll also see that bump I don’t like. Okay, we already at the three-week mark and what’s happened is the swelling that I had, appears to have gone down from the coolsculpting and it kind of seems like I am back to where I was at the beginning of this process. Well, it has been six weeks and let’s take a look. Slowing down,

I’m pretty sure I have lost a good amount of fat, I’m not exactly sure how much, visually I can notice it. I wish it was more but they do say it takes up to eight weeks, it’s still a side, see if you could compare and then, one lines up with the other videos. I am officially at eight weeks and I can see a noticeable difference when I look down. I have my stack here and hopefully, you can see on the side profile, that it is diminished and this was the cool-sculpting procedure that I showed you, I have previously video if you’re not familiar with it.

So, you can check it out but I will be adding the before and after pictures to get from the doctor’s office to the studio, in about two weeks. So, enjoy and thank you for watching.

CoolSculpting Procedure Before And After

Video Transcript:
Hi. I’m Dr. Frank Lista and welcome to our examing room one, here at the Plastic Surgery Clinic and I want to talk to you today about this exciting new technology right here at the Plastic Surgery Clinic and it’s called Cool-sculpting. Cool-sculpting uses a principle called Cryolipolysis, that’s fat freezing and it literally freezes fat, to decrease fat in certain areas of your body. It not just for people who are overweight but people who like their weight and have fat in just a little area, that they’d like to get rid of.

The technology works on the principle that fat freezes at a different temperature than water, so we apply this cooling head or similar head like this, to an area of your body where you have a little fat or that you don’t like and fat freezes at three degrees Celsius but water freezes at zero. So, it doesn’t hurt the skin because, it’s not cold enough to freeze the skin, which is mostly water but it is cold enough to freeze your fat cells.

So, it’s super simple. We apply the applicator head to the area, put a little bit of suction on the skin and then literally freezes the fat cells and it’s amazing. At the end of the treatment, there’s no downtime, there’s no redness.

This takes about an hour, it’s not very expensive, cost but seven hundred and fifty dollars per area and your fat cells are frozen, they die and then your body just eliminates them, the way they would eliminate any fat that it finds in the body. So, what’s incredible about it is that, it’s not surgery, it only takes but hour, it’s very inexpensive and it gets rid of fat in localized areas. I’ve to tell the truth, I haven’t seen so much excitement here in the clinic in ages, all the staff is volunteering to have it done, which, you know, means that it really works and it is generating a huge amount of excitement here in the clinic, with our staff and with our patients, who finally can get rid of stubborn little fat areas without surgery.

So, you should call. You can come here to see us, there is no fee for an appointment or a consultation and meet me or one of my really skilled nurses, who could tell you all about it, whether or not you’re a candidate. Our patients love this because, it gets rid of fat without any surgery and without any downtime.

Fat Freezing The Buttocks


Video Transcript:

Hi, I’m Dr. Michael Zadeh, this is Center for Cosmetic Health. We’ll be doing a coolsculpting treatment now. We have other videos you can go over. Technology micro scoping is a natural treatment. We’ll be doing on a (inaudible 06:57) just on her upper thighs. So, we have the areas marked out here, see right there. When we squeeze, we can see the peak there and here, that’s where we are going to apply the (inaudible 07:23).

First of all, what we do first is that, we put on a cool (inaudible 07:27). Joe, how do you feel a slightly wet right now and that will protect the skin from the suction and the freezing of the cool-sculpting device. We are just removing the air bubbles out of the (inaudible 07:45). We put the applicator on there, we are using cool creep applicator, which is good for this particular areas. We put it on the center, we want treated. Are you okay right there? Okay. Then you can feel the suctioning. We trying to make it more comfortable. So, that’s the treatment. So, this treatment takes an hour, we’ll come back in an hour and we’ll take it off.

Here, so, the treatment is complete now, we are going to turn off the suction and gently take the device off. Good. See the area that is being treated, then we take jocker off now. We are going to just massage it down. We may feel a little discomfort as the massage is being done. We are going to massage it for about three to five minutes or so. Okay, that’s final and we are going to do the other side the exact same way.

CoolSculpting Of Outer Thigh Fat & Saddlebags

Video transcript:

Coolsculpting of the outer area also known as the saddle bags, is a completely noninvasive and non-surgical treatment for permanent fat reduction. The treatment starts with taking photos of the thighs and obtaining a baseline weight.
Right, for our patient here, we are treating for the lateral thigh, also known as the saddle bag area and this is a different applicator than the other ones, this applicator is a smooth applicator, that it actually doesn’t suction up the area. So, it’s a different template that we use and it just covers the area that we want to treat like that and so, we what we actually do is just map out.

So, I’m just going to be… Just turn to the side, okay and it’s nice so we get a view from the front, so that you know which area is the most prominent area that we’re going to be treating, which I can tell is right here.  So, I’m just going to mark kind of the center of that, just so that I know about where we’re treating and you want to make sure not to go on to the buttocks which starts right here because, obviously there’s no reason to treat that area. Alright, so we can see that that does fully treat this lateral site area, that is bothersome to the patient, okay.

During the treatment after a comfortable positioning, a foam borders applied to the treatment area. A gel pad and liner are applied to the outer side, to act as a barrier and protect the skin during the treatment. The treatment applicator is then positioned into place, in the previously marked area. The cool smooth applicator that is used for the outer thigh, does not use suction pressure to hold it in place but rather, has to be strapped securely in place.

After the cooling process is started, you will feel like cold sensation in the treatment area. Within ten minutes of treatment, the area becomes numb and there is no longer any cool sensation. There are no needles, liposuction or incisions. The cool smooth treatment of each outer thigh area takes two hours. Both sides can be treated during the same appointment. In the weeks to follow, your body will naturally break down the fat cells that die and they will be permanently eliminated from your body.

Coolsculpting results have been shown to be long term and permanent, about twenty to twenty-five percent of the fat in the treated area is gone forever. Really, results are seen about six weeks after your treatment and final results are seen three to four months after treatment.
