The pandemic has created the need for all of us to be socially distant, even to quarantine at times during the past year. This translated into many of us working from home and spending a lot of time on Zoom, Google Meets, Google Hangouts, Facebook Groups, and Facetime. These video conference sites were amazing….until we saw ourselves on the screen so much! Then we were forced to see our own double chins, under-eye bags, facial wrinkles, and graying hair. Well, don’t worry. You don’t have to look at your double chin any longer. The staff at Flawless Med Spa can help you get rid of that extra chin with CoolSculpting®.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
Coolsculpting® is a remarkable fat-freezing technology that uses cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a revolutionary way that people rid themselves of stubborn, unwanted fat. It all started when Harvard University scientists observed children eating popsicles! They noticed that some of the children got dimples in their cheeks from eating these frozen treats and realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat in the children’s cheeks! The idea that cold can target fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue was truly revolutionary and the inspiration for CoolSculpting®. People no longer need to resort to invasive surgeries with long recovery times to get the look they desire because this incredible technology crystallizes fat cells which are then flushed away over time by the body’s own natural processes.
What Is The Treatment Like?
When treating a small area like the chin, our technicians use the Cool Mini® which is one of the CoolSculpting® devices. During your treatment, a gel pad will be placed on your chin to act as a barrier between your body and the device. The device will then be cooled to its required temperature and placed over the gel pad. It will then target the areas of fat to be treated and freeze those cells without damaging the surrounding organs, nerves, blood cells, and tissue. Once the fat cells have been frozen they are removed from your body through the body’s natural processes.
What Results Will I See?
Patients will begin to see a more well-defined jawline and less under-the-chin fat in as little as four weeks after their first treatment as their bodies naturally flush away the unwanted fat cells. Typically, a chin client needs 1 or 2 treatments to achieve their ideal results. This is a relatively short amount of time considering there is no recovery time as there would be with invasive surgical methods.
Once fat cells are flushed from the body, the treatment areas will look 20-25% smaller and those fat cells will not come back. To maintain results, patients should follow a healthy diet and exercise plan. Being consistent about making healthy choices will keep patients looking and feeling their best for years to come.
We think you deserve to take care of yourself and look your best as you continue to face all those Zoom calls and other video conferencing tools! Our staff would love to meet you and devise a personal treatment plan just for you!
