CoolSculpting by Candace

 

It’s that time of year folks… New Year Resolutions! It seems to me that the MOST POPULAR is in regards to improving your body, making what I am going talk to you about the perfect fit… Cool Sculpting!

As non-invasive body contouring treatments continue to grow, Cool Sculpting continues to lead be the leader. It is the worlds #1 non-invasive far reduction procedure with over 1 millions treated preformed world-wide. Cool Sculpting is an innovated, non-invasive body contouring treatment that helps contour your body by “freezing” unwanted fat. How is this even possible? Right? Well trust me folks it is!!

Cool Sculpting procedure works by delivering controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystallized aka “frozen,” then 20-25% die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you in less then 3 months. All this without any surgery, needles or downtime!!

The most common questions people have are the following;
• How much will it cost?
• Does is hurt?
• What happens to the fat?
• Does it really work?
• How long does it take for results?
And, What’s happens if I gain weight later?

For most people the number one question is always, how much will this cost? Of course it is the hardest question to answer. Cost varies with every patient, and until we see your body and the concerns you have we won’t know the price. But here’s what I can say, Cool Sculpting cycles start at $600 per cycle with package discounts.

Does it hurt? Again, everyone’s pain thrush hold is deferent but here’s what you can expect; I always tell my patients that there are “moments” of discomfort. The first 10 minutes and the last 3-5 minutes are it during your treatment. Afterwards you will have about a week if swelling, bruising and tenderness. Other then that you can maintain your regular schedule.

Where does the fat go? Well after the treated fat cells are frozen, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good!!

Here’s my favorite question, does it really work?!? My answer is YES! Cool Sculpting has up to a 95% patient satisfaction rate with Zeltiq’s studies. We here at Clarity Skin, help create a customized treatment plan for you that tailors to your individual needs. Results take anywhere between 4 weeks and 3 months. Of course, everybody’s results vary but the whole staff at Clarity Skin have been treated and everyone is 100% sure it works!

Last question that comes up all the time since I covered the time frame for results already is, What happens if you gain weight later? Well of course like any body contouring treatment, diet and exercise is crucial for long term results. However with Cool Sculpting the beauty behind it is that the fat cells that were killed are permanently destroyed. However, we only treated 20-25% of the fat cells so yes, you can still gain volume in the area we treated and of course in other areas of your body.

Here at Clarity Skin we have preformed OVER 3,500 treatments in just under 3 years. We have three of the most amazing, highly skilled technicians. The clinic and the technicians have all been certified and trained by the wonderful creators behind Cool Sculpting, Zeltiq.

So what are you waiting for? Do you want a more sculpted you? Please come in and see me or my amazing coworkers for a complementary consultation to see if Cool Sculpting is right for you!!

IPL treatment by Jocelyn

Alrighty folks. Time to talk about IPL. One of Clarity’s most popular and most requested rejuvenation treatments.

IPL (or Intense Pulsed Light) is a multi-tasking, non-invasive, light based treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve many different skin imperfections. Our particular device, the ELOS SRA Plus, also combines the synergy of bipolar radio frequency. By combining these two energies, we are able to improve sun-damaged skin, vascular lesions, diffuse redness, rosacea, pore size, and even smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles. HELLO!! Yes. You NEED an IPL treatment. We ALL need an IPL treatment. Unless you live in a cave, you have some degree of sun damage. It may not be visible on the surface yet, but it’s down there. Eventually it will make its way to the surface. A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is ideal. Treatments are 1 hour long, very easy to tolerate, and there is very minimal down time. Most patients walk out of the office with a “sun-burned” appearance to their skin. Brown spots and vascular lesions will darken over the first 3-5 days and develop a “coffee ground” texture. This crusting is easily covered with a tinted sunscreen and mineral powder and will flake off, usually within 7-14 days depending on how severe your skin damage was.
It is required that you avoid any sun exposure before and after your treatment. We are unable to treat tanned skin. It is also recommended to discontinue the use of any AHAs, Retinol products, and photo sensitizing medications 5-7 days before your treatment as these can cause adverse reactions. Combining a good at-home skin care regiment with your treatments will enhance your results, and daily use of a vitamin C antioxidant and a physical spf are a must during the course of treatment.

So, how does it work?? The visible light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the skins surface, while the radio frequency energy stimulates the production of collagen (the skins support system) from within. In combining the IPL and RF energy into one treatment, we are able to offer you the very latest and greatest form of skin rejuvenation.

So there you have it. IPL is a safe effective way to give your skin an overall rejuvenation. Come and see me soon!!!
