CoolSculpting is a revolutionary fat reduction procedure that has been creating waves in the field of cosmetic care for a few years now. The procedure is ideally suited for a large number of people who are keen to appear slimmer and svelte, but are not ready to undergo invasive surgical procedures to achieve their goal. Stubborn fat deposits that will not go away with exercise or diet can be reduced in a safe, non-invasive manner with CoolSculpting.
Byrd Aesthetic, an Anti-Aging Center, is equipped with state of the art facilities to provide CoolSculping in Atlanta. Board certified Dr. Marcia Byrd heads the facility, which offers some of the most advanced and effective non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Patients in Atlanta, Roswell, GA and other nearby locations have an excellent opportunity to achieve a more youthful and attractive appearance at the facility.
How does CoolSculpting Work?
FDA-cleared CoolSculpting procedure is a clinically proven, safe and non-invasive approach to reduce unwanted fat from specific pockets in the body. The technique is unique in the sense that it applies a completely innovative approach of freezing away the targeted fat cells to their death, and achieving fat reduction without any need for incisions or painful injections. The method involves natural and controlled removal of fat cells, without impacting the surrounding tissue.
CoolSculpting operates on the principle of bringing the unwanted fat cells to a precise cold temperature where they start dying. The technique involves pressing the applicator against the targeted area so that the fat cells become sufficiently cold to induce an inflammatory response. This results in their death and the body reacts naturally to dispose of the dead or damaged fat cells. It takes a few weeks for the dead cells to become removed from the body naturally, and the body achieves marked reduction in fats in the treated area.
A single session of CoolSculpting in Atlanta at Dr. Byrd’s center typically achieves up to 20 percent fat reduction in the targeted area. Most patients from Atlanta, Roswell and other nearby areas in GA report that results are visible as early as three weeks following the procedure. However, it takes about two to four months for the full results to establish. One session of CoolSculpting will usually last between one to two hours, depending on the extent of area to be treated.
The process of natural and selective destruction of fat cells when subjected to a certain cold temperature is known as Cryolipolysis, which essentially means ‘cold lipolysis’. This process is followed within a few weeks by another natural process called apoptosis. In this process, the fat cells that were subjected to cold temperatures begin to shrivel and disappear. Sometimes Dr. Byrd may recommend to her patients in Atlanta or Roswell, GA to opt for multiple CoolSculpting sessions for more extensive results.
Surgery vs. CoolSculpting
Invasive plastic surgeries such as liposuction or tummy tuck are able to show very substantive and quick results compared to CoolSculpting. However, these invasive surgeries usually come at a price of a painful and complex procedure, difficult recovery with side effects, long recovery period, higher risks, and higher costs. As a result, many patients are deterred from opting for these procedures.
This is where CoolSculpting provides them an effective and proven alternative solution without the downsides of a traditional surgery. The patient will completely avoid going through incisions or injections in the deep dermis. This revolutionary technique will achieve the desired results without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue and without the risk of any significant complications.
Other Non-surgical Solutions vs. CoolSculpting
The growing need among people for non-surgical treatments for fat reduction has resulted in the emergence of a variety of new technologies and techniques that aim to reduce unwanted fat without surgery. Many of these treatments are effective as long as they are performed at a recognized facility equipped to provide the latest techniques. A lot also depends on the skills and experience of the operating expert who applies the technique to achieve best results.
CoolSculpting in Atlanta differentiates itself radically from most of these non-invasive techniques based on laser, ultrasound and radio frequency principles. While these treatments are almost equally non-invasive but none of them applies the revolutionary cryolipolysis principle. Freezing away of selected fat cells is the gentlest and safest option among all, with no adverse effect on the surrounding healthy tissue and no burns or pain involved. Byrd Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center, under the experienced leadership and direct supervision of Dr. Marcia Byrd, is a state of the art facility for CoolSculpting for patients in Atlanta, Roswell and other nearby areas in GA.
