Algonquin, IL dermatologist describes non-invasive fat reduction with CoolSculpting
Posted by Dr. Vikram Khanna
When patients are seeking a non-invasive way of treating areas of fat that are resistant to traditional diet and exercise, our team of professionals will encourage patients to learn about CoolSculpting. This fat reduction technique is a revolutionary method of achieving better body contours without having to undergo plastic surgery! At Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, Dr. Vikram Khanna at his Algonquin practice can assist with this and other technologically advanced solutions for patients in the community.
CoolSculpting is a treatment designed by a company called Zeltiq that works to reduce fat in common trouble spots, specifically the abdominal area. The device is used to provide cryolipolysis. This is like liposuction but instead of removing the fat cells from the body through a special cannula that vacuums it out of the body, this method freezes the fat cells instead. The body’s lymphatic system will then eliminate them in a natural manner, providing optimal results without invasive treatment. Patients relax in the treatment chair as the device administers this cooling action. Within an hour, treatment is completed, and patients can return to their regular schedule without any interruption in their day. This is perfect for busy patients who are unable to get to the gym to work on combating these unwanted fat cells on the stomach.
Dr. Vikram Khanna works with patients to help them determine if this procedure is appropriate for their specific needs. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary and highly technical method of treating unwanted fat on the body and can be used for most adult patients who want targeted results. There are several advantages to using CoolSculpting which makes it a popular choice for our patients: CoolSculpting:
Provides gradual results which look more natural than plastic surgery
Eliminates the need to cut into the skin and creates results without scarring
Is non-invasive and does not require any downtime or healing following the procedure
Is comfortable and does not require anesthetics for patients to complete
Is affordable, and can be obtained by patients on a tight budget
Does not increase the risk of infection as there is no cutting into the skin
Provides a more natural approach to fat reduction instead of removal through plastic surgery
Who is a candidate?
Any adult patient who has unwanted fat on the body and wants to achieve better body contours without plastic surgery may be considered an appropriate candidate for CoolSculpting. The best way to find out is by contacting our team of professionals for a consultation visit, during which Dr. Vikram Khanna will provide a full evaluation and determine candidacy before moving forward with scheduling the appointment.
How are the results from CoolSculpting obtained?
Unlike plastic surgery, in which patients will have immediate results because the fat cells have been physically removed, CoolSculpting results occur in a natural manner. The device cools the fat cells, which triggers the body to remove them naturally through the lymphatic system. Because of this gradual flush of the fat cells, patients will notice gradual improvements. This can occur over several weeks. Patients will notice results with just one treatment but can undergo several sessions for optimal results. It is also important for patients to understand that CoolSculpting sessions are not meant to be a weight loss solution, but instead, a body contouring treatment that doesn’t require plastic surgery.
