When patients learn about CoolSculpting, they are excited. They want to learn more about how it can help shape and contour their bodies, particularly the way it helps eliminate stubborn fat. But they have other questions as well. They want to know whether the procedure has any risks or negative side effects: a sensible concern. The good news is that CoolSculpting has no long-term side effects. Most side effects fade within a few days or a few weeks following the procedure

You eat right and you work out. But for some reason, you still can’t get rid of that unwanted fat. To shed those last few pounds, many people turn to their doctors for help. For these patients, doctors often recommend either CoolSculpting or liposuction – two of the most popular body sculpting procedures in the world. Both of these procedures permanently remove unwanted fat, but the way they do it is quite different. Here is a quick breakdown of how each works.
When patients ask us about CoolSculpting, one of the first things they want to know is whether its effects are permanent: “Is the fat gone for good?”The answer is yes; fat treated with CoolSculpting is permanently destroyed. Ordinary weight loss decreases the size of your fat cells, but doesn’t remove them. CoolSculpting permanently kills fat cells and removes them naturally through the lymphatic system.

DNA is a surprisingly fragile molecule. Though it’s essential to all your cells, it takes very little energy to break it apart. Sunlight, pollution, and free radicals damage DNA in over a million skin cells every day, impairing its natural defenses and basic functions. Cells with damaged DNA produce less collagen, less elastin, and fewer antioxidants. They make your skin weak, vulnerable, and prone to wrinkles, freckles, lines, and sunspots. As damage builds, your epidermis becomes thin, allowing red capillaries around your nose, cheeks, and ears to peak through.
As people get older, they start to notice a number of changes in their face. The skin starts to sag, the cheeks loose projection, lips lose volume, and wrinkles appear. These are the classic signs of aging. Thanks to Voluma and Juvederm, you can improve or reverse many of these changes with a simple office treatment.
A strong jaw line conveys strength, confidence, and youthfulness. It is no wonder so many Americans want one. Over 80 percent of patients surveyed say they'd like to eliminate some of the fat beneath their chins and give themselves a better defined neck. It's not as easy as it sounds. Your neck is one of the most difficult areas of your body to deal with. Fat cells here are extremely stubborn, and often don't respond to diet or exercise.
The number of fat cells in your body stabilizes between the ages of 13 and 20. These cells shrink and grow as you gain or lose weight, but the total number of cells never changes unless you do something to remove them. In the past, the only option for individuals looking to get rid of unwanted fat cells was liposuction. Now there's a new and easier option called Coolsculpting.
Laser genesis is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that promotes healthy-appearing skin. Laser genesis can be used to treat fine wrinkles, minimize the appearance of pores, smooth skin texture and reduce redness.
There are multiple options available to patients with blemishes and sun-damaged skin of the face, neck or chest. One of these is intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. Introduced in the mid-1990s, IPL is now used to treat a variety of skin problems that occur from sun damage or aging. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons more than 620,000 patients received IPL treatments in 2014.
