Isolated areas of fat are often stubborn, making them almost impossible to improve through diet or exercise. While liposuction can provide excellent body sculpting results, the surgical process and extended recovery is not always an ideal option. Luckily, an innovative new treatment, CoolSculpting, is available to dramatically improve the contour of the legs, abdomen, arms, and back without any incisions.
Women in Santa Rosa are choosing CoolSculpting at Allegro MedSpa to restore youthful, physical contours. As a proven method of riding unwanted fatty tissue without surgery, CoolSculpting provides long-lasting results after only a single treatment.
CoolSculpting in Sonoma County
Allegro MedSpa brings the science of CoolSculpting to Napa Valley. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting safely reduces select fatty tissue using cooling technology. Without any incisions or sutures, CoolSculpting melts away up to 20% of the fat within a target area, without the risk of scarring or infection. Allegro MedSpa’s CoolSculpting dissolves away exercise-resistant fat, all while leaving adjacent skin and tissue unharmed.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment, based on the science of Cryolipolysis, or the use of freezing temperatures to reduce fatty tissue. When fat cells freeze, they gradually perish, allowing the skin to bounce back to a smooth and firm appearance. Allegro MedSpa has three different size CoolSculpting applicators, each designed for a unique treatment area. Additionally, Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas have also added the late test CoolSculpting applicator to their practice, the CoolSmooth PRO. This small, flat applicator makes ‘unpinchable’ areas of firm fatty tissue easy to treat.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
How does CoolSculpting work?
Research shows that fat cells are more vulnerable to varying temperatures than healthy tissue. When slowly brought down to a freezing temperature, as with CoolSculpting, the cell walls of fatty tissue will gradually disintegrate. This allows the body to safely clear away the unwanted cell debris. Due to this gentle process, the results from CoolSculpting are not immediate. However, over the three months following treatment, as fat cells are metabolized, the target area will become smooth and taut.
How is CoolSculpting performed?
Two paddle-shaped applicators are used during a CoolSculpting treatment, one placed on each side of the target area. Several size applicators are available at Allegro MedSpa, depending on the area and severity of tissue being treated. Once the applicators are in place, they will gently vacuum up the fatty tissue, and then gradually begin to cool down significantly. During treatment, the fat cells will freeze, causing them to slowly die off and eventually removed by the body. In an hour, the CoolSculpting applicators are removed, and the patient is free to resume their normal activities.
The CoolSculpting treatment is not considered painful, therefore no anesthesia is necessary. While some patients note a slight pull as the tissue is suctioned, and an intense cold, the treatment area is quickly numbed. During a CoolSculpting treatment, patients are comfortable enough to read, watch movies, talk on their phone, or even take a quick nap.
While the results from traditional CoolSculpting are dramatic, Allegro MedSpa is one of the few practices to offer patients the benefits of DualSculpting. With two CoolSculpting machines available, we can treat two different areas during the same 60 minute session; saving both time and effort. DualSculpting makes the already exceptional CoolSculpting treatment even more efficient.
Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Almost anyone with stubborn, isolated areas of fat may make a good candidate for CoolSculpting. The ideal patient will in generally good health, fully understand the CoolSculpting treatment process, and hold reasonable expectations for the final results. It is important to remember that CoolSculpting is not a replacement for weight loss and may not be beneficial for all patients.
A complimentary CoolSculpting consultation will be performed prior to scheduling treatment. At this time, Dr. Furnas or Dr. Canales can explain the CoolSculpting procedure in detail. Should it be decided that CoolSculpting is the best technique for the patient, an individualized treatment plan will be created.
