Treat Yourself with CoolSculpting this Holiday Season
With just a few days before Christmas, it’s easy to get caught in the holiday rush. With so many demands and expectations, we hardly get a chance to think about ourselves and our own needs. This holiday, take a moment to think about yourself and how plastic surgery can change your life for the better.
Plastic surgery is no longer stigmatized and has become a source of pride for millions of Americans. Today, plastic surgery is a status-symbol that has empowered millions to actualize their ideal selves. It comes as no surprise that plastic surgery has become one of the most popular Christmas gifts in the market. With an influx of up to 30% during the holiday season, many clinics in the country now offer coupons and discounts to anyone looking to take advantage of the holidays.
What Is CoolSculpting?
One of the biggest advancements in the industry today is CoolSculpting. This FDA Approved, state-of-the-art treatment has become popular in recent years due to its ability to dissolve fat without the need to cut into the skin. CoolSculpting harness cold temperature by crystallizing fat cells in key areas of the body, which then dissolves naturally over the course of three months.
The CoolSculpting process involves the use of a handheld device that freezes and destroys fat beneath the surface of the skin. The treatment evolved from a study that found the beneficial effects that freezing temperatures can have on parts of the body such as the arms, love handles, abs, and back.
While it is not intended for major weight loss, it is a game-changing technique that can help contour the body. CoolScupting works best with people who are already close to their ideal weight and are struggling to remove excess fat in problematic areas.
The procedure itself can only be performed by surgeons and physicians who have undergone the proper training from Zeltiq, the manufacturers of CoolSculpting. In addition, the machine itself is only available for purchase to clinics with a properly trained staff. This ensures that each procedure is performed under the utmost care and the strictest quality.
“Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting only eases specific areas of fat”, says Memorial Plastic Surgery’s Founder Dr Patrick Hsu. “While it is not as extensive or as thorough, it is a safe, non-surgical alternative that can reduce 30% of body fat.”
“It’s important to remember that Coolsculpting is not intended for weight loss”, adds Dr. Hsu. “It is a process that aids in the 10-30% reduction of fat depending on the number of sessions, while allowing for highly controlled contouring in specific regions of the body.”
CoolSculpting for Christmas
Since it’s introduction to the market just a few years ago, CoolSculpting has become one of the most sought-after, non-invasive procedures in the country. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan have all publically expressed their enthusiasm, sparking a wider interest for the procedure.
“What makes CoolSculpting incredibly appealing is its quick recovery period”, adds Dr. Hsu. “Recovery is immediate with no down time vs 2 weeks when undergoing minimal invasive surgery. CoolSculpting allows patients to immediately resume normal activity making it an ideal holiday gift for anyone seeking to shed off a few extra pounds before the New Year.”
So this Holiday Season, consider presenting your loved one with the gift of CoolSculpting. While it is not a complete solution to weight loss, it a safe, non-invasive supplement to anyone who wants to start their New Year with a new look!
