Liposuction (lipo) is not the only solution for ridding yourself of stubborn, unwanted body fat. Consider a non-surgical alternative to lipo in Scottsdale, AZ, here at Ultra Smooth Skin.
Invasive surgery is out; non-surgical alternatives are in! Our tested and proven solution for no lipo body sculpting is FDA-approved and provides results to patients seeking to reduce stubborn body fat without going under the knife. It’s called CoolSculpting and it works virtually anywhere you have extra bulk that doesn’t respond to dieting and exercise.
How CoolSculpting Works as a No Lipo Solution for Body Contouring
Using a process called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting cools and freezes fat to a precise temperature. This temperature is scientifically and clinically proven to only freeze fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissue. So even though we place the applicator topically on the skin, the skin feels cool but isn’t damaged by freezing.
Yes, this is a 100% topical application; no injections or incisions are required for a CoolSculpting procedure. Yet the fat is the only thing destroyed and eliminated through your body’s own waste elimination using your lymphatic system.
CoolSculpting can eliminate fat virtually anywhere on the body, including:
- Upper and lower abdomen to eliminate belly bulk
- Love handles, also known as the flanks, a common area for fat to collect and stay no matter how much you exercise or diet
- Inner and outer thighs
- Below the buttocks, also known as the banana roll, to help sculpt the buttocks and eliminate visible rolls when wearing shorts or a bathing suit
- Upper arms, reducing the arm jiggle and helping you feel more confident in sleeveless tops
- Back and bra area, reducing the back rolls and bulges we see when wearing bras or bikinis
- Double chin, for an improved profile and smooth jawline
Why Choose CoolSculpting Over Lipo?
For most patients, CoolSculpting provides a non-surgical option that requires no downtime, is less invasive, and has fewer risks than surgery. Surgery brings risks like infection and requires significant planning for aftercare, such as having a friend or family member take you home from surgery, taking time off work to heal, and having someone care for you while you recover.
With CoolSculpting, you can hop over to our Scottsdale medical spa, get your treatment during your lunch break, and return to work right after without any downtime or recovery period needed.
The primary drawback is that CoolSculpting requires a series of treatments to see your full results, while lipo is typically a one-and-done procedure. Ultimately, each patient must decide for themselves what their priorities are when choosing between lipo and a non-surgical body contouring alternative.
What About Skin Tightening?
With lipo, skin removal is often part of the process. When eliminating belly fat, for example, a tummy tuck is also performed much of the time. CoolSculpting is not a skin tightening procedure; however, once your fat is reduced, we can also provide you with non-surgical skin tightening treatments using non-surgical radiofrequency skin tightening via Thermage or RF microneedling with our PiXel8 device. Both offer amazing results with no downtime.
