CoolSculpting by Zeltiq
Aesthetic Enhancements is proud to have been the first practice in Central Florida to offer CoolSculpting technology. Coolsculpting allows a safe and effective reduction of 20-25% of an area's subcutaneous fat without surgery, needles, anesthesia, or downtime!
The science behind CoolSculpting is called crylipolysis, the research behind it solid, and the outcomes consistently reproducible and positive. The basics are that fat cells die when exposed to cold, and that the temperature at which the fat dies is higher than temperatures dangerous to other tissues (nerves, blood vessels, skin...). CoolSculpting allows the fat to be brought to just the right temperature... causing the fat cells to die over the month or so after the procedure (by a process called programmed cell death, or apoptosis), which then leads to the absorption of the fat cells by the body- never to be replaced.
While we ARE very excited, and I DO believe in this technology, there are a few important points to make:
- CoolSculpting will most likely not replace liposuction or other more invasive procedures for those who desire more significant improvements. If you need liposuction or a tummy tuck, CoolSculpting will NOT give the same outcome as surgery.
- Because the above is true, it is imperative to see a surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery for your CoolSculpting treatments-- if you are not a candidate, or if there is a better option for you, you would want to know that alternative options are being described to you by someone well-trained to perform them on you safely.
