Refine Your Body With Non-Surgical CoolSculpting® | Thousands of treatments performed!


CoolSculpting cedar falls IA

If you’re like most men and women, you have probably tried just about everything to reduce your stubborn body fat. From crash diets to intense exercise routines, nothing seems to work. If you’re considering your next steps, you might think surgery is your best option, but as with many patients, invasive techniques can seem intimidating.

Until recently, it was difficult for patients to find a procedure that would provide a compromise. You had to either undergo surgery or accept your body in its current state, but that’s no longer the case with CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting at PCI Plastic Surgery can remove unwanted fat without incisions or downtime. The non-invasive and FDA-approved procedure performs what diet and exercise cannot and produces the figure you’ve been working so hard to achieve.

The Procedure

CoolSculpting works by using a targeted cooling process to freeze unwanted fat cells and initiate a natural response that leads to their removal from the body. Since fat freezes at a higher temperature than water, fat cells are more susceptible to the effects of cooling than all other cell types. This cooling treatment targets specific fat cells and leaves surrounding tissues unharmed.

The procedure will begin by Dr. Andrews attaching a specialized CoolSculpting applicator to the treatment area. Once it is positioned, cooling technology called Cryolipolysis will start to freeze the fat cells, which then triggers a process that leads to their removal from the body.

The treatment itself only takes an hour or less and involves no incisions, sutures, scarring, needles or laser energy. Since the procedure is nonsurgical, patients are free to relax while they receive a CoolSculpting treatment. Many people pass the time by reading, watching television, checking emails or even napping. Fat reduction is really that simple!

Ideal Patients

If you have been struggling with stubborn fat pockets, but don’t want to undergo invasive surgery, CoolSculpting may be right for you. This cooling technology can be used to treat many different areas of the body, including the:

  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Chin

But CoolSculpting isn’t right for everyone. If you have very large deposits of fat in certain areas, liposuction may be the better option. If you’re unsure if CoolSculpting would provide you with your desired results, come see us for an initial consultation. Dr. Andrews and his staff will examine the fatty areas you’re interested in removing with CoolSculpting and choose an applicator that will selectively target the specified treatment zone.

*Individual results may vary.

The number of treatment sessions needed will depend on your cosmetic goals, as well as the regions you are hoping to have treated. Some patients will notice results after just one hour-long session, while others may require two or three treatments to see desired results.* During your consultation, Dr. Andrews will put together a treatment plan to help you achieve your body contouring goals.

Recovery Timeline

 

CoolSculpting Cedar Falls, WaterlooUnlike a lot of other procedures, CoolSculpting takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. In fact, many patients receive a session over their lunch break. Following your CoolSculpting treatment, you can typically return to your everyday activities right away—no downtime necessary.*

As for results, many people see a noticeable reduction of fat after just one visit.* But it may take a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the treated fat cells. If Dr. Andrews deemed it necessary, you may require additional appointments to achieve your desired results.

After just a few months, you’ll notice that your clothes fit better and that you appreciate your appearance even more.* So long as you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise routine, your long-term results should remain stable.*

Since my hysterectomy, sex has been extremely painful. I suffered from extreme dryness and discomfort. I had no sex drive and was no longer able to experience an orgasm. Until, recently, when a friend told me about Courtney Albritton and PCI's ThermiVa treatment. I have had 2 of the 3 treatments and immediately experienced positive results. I am still in awe of the results I have experienced. The procedure was painless. Until ThermiVa, I had come to the realization that my sex life would no longer be what it once was pre-hysterectomy. I highly recommend this procedure.*
