What is CoolSculpting with Z-wave?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive body contouring tool for weight reduction that targets stubborn layers of unwanted fat. CoolSculpting is ideal for those areas that don’t respond well to diet and exercise and has been proven to permanently eliminate targeted fat cells. This advanced technology uses a controlled cooling technique that destroys fat by freezing the cells, allowing your body to dispose of them naturally within the following weeks. This procedure is safe and effective because fat is more vulnerable to damage from freezing temperatures than the surrounding areas, so the CoolSculpting process does not harm nearby skin and tissues.

CoolSculpting is effective at addressing stubborn pockets of fat in many areas, but it is commonly used on:

  • Hips and thighs
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Midsection
  • Buttocks
  • Neck and chin

At The Finishing Touch Medspa, we use CoolSculpting with Z-wave technology, which we include at no extra cost to you. Z-wave has been shown to improve CoolSculpting results by up to 60 percent and can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. If multiple sessions are needed to achieve your desired results, CoolSculpting can be safely reapplied to the same area. To help reduce your treatment times, we also offer “dual sculpting”— the use of two CoolSculpting machines simultaneously to give you more comprehensive results more quickly. Additionally, our CoolSculpting treatments include the full set of applicators that adapt to the unique contours of your body to better target a variety of areas. These features allow us to customize your experience so you can get exactly the results you want!

How does CoolSculpting work?

The CoolSculpting procedure uses a process known as cryolipolysis. This is when concentrated amounts of cold temperatures are directed at fat cells to freeze them. The crystalizing effects destroy treated cells which are naturally metabolized by the liver and other waste removal systems in the body. The addition of Z-wave technology delivers radial pulse therapy (RPT) to treated areas, increasing blood flow and stimulating collagen production. The effectiveness of CoolSculpting treatments are greatly improved as a result, but Z-wave also helps promote healing, minimize swelling and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

CoolSculpting is unique because it permanently decreases the number of fat cells. Fluctuations in weight affect the size of fat cells but have no effect on the amount of them; when we lose weight, fat cells become smaller, but they do not disappear. With CoolSculpting, the quantity of fat cells is altered, so the results are permanent. This makes it extremely effective at treating stubborn fat that isn’t responsive to diet and exercise, helping patients reshape problem areas and optimize the results of their weight loss.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

As the only FDA-approved fat-freezing technology, CoolSculpting offers many advantages over other fat reduction treatments, such as liposuction. CoolSculpting is:

  • Noninvasive
  • Nonsurgical
  • Effective on stubborn fat
  • Permanent
  • Quick and efficient
  • Painless, with minimal to no discomfort
  • Free of serious side effects with no downtime or recovery period

At The Finishing Touch Medspa, our CoolSculpting treatment with Z-wave technology also provides additional benefits, such as increased effectiveness, cellulite reduction and improved healing. Z-wave is offered at no extra charge to enhance your results and give you the best possible outcome!

What to expect during treatment

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, nonsurgical fat removal procedure that produces little to no discomfort. Many patients find that the experience can be both relaxing and comfortable. Our CoolSculpting tool applies gentle suction to accurately direct freezing temperatures to your treatment areas. Some patients may feel a slight tugging or pulling as the procedure begins, as well as a cooling sensation. If there is any discomfort, it typically dissipates as the area becomes numb. The CoolSculpting experience has been compared to the application of an ice pack and it’s not uncommon for patients to read, work or watch a movie during their sessions. The whole procedure can be completed in under 40 minutes, but treatment times may vary depending on the size and number of targeted areas.

What to expect after treatment

The results of your CoolSculpting treatment will begin to appear about four weeks after your session. At this point, you will notice a visible fat reduction, but the most dramatic results start to show after eight weeks. Since the body naturally eliminates affected cells, you may see further results continue to develop for up to six months. These results are permanent as eliminated fat cells don’t grow back or migrate to other areas of the body. Once removed, they’re gone for good! Even patients who regain weight notice they are still leaner in areas treated with CoolSculpting. The Finishing Touch Medspa team has decades of experience helping patients struggling with obesity and can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle to optimize your outcome. Additionally, your results will be covered by our Finishing Touch Guarantee. Be sure to ask your licensed practitioner for more information at your complimentary consultation.

After your treatment, Z-wave technology helps to lower the risk of side effects and promote healing. If you do experience any, they will be minimal and easily managed. Swelling, bruising and tenderness in treated areas are most common, but some patients also report tingling and increased sensitivity. These side effects are temporary and will subside on their own. CoolSculpting is safe and effective, but it’s important to consult with a board-certified physician before undergoing any medical treatment.

Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an innovative tool that helps many patients reach their body goals by reducing stubborn fat, but it’s not an alternative to healthy weight loss. CoolSculpting is not a shortcut and is not recommended for those who have a large volume of fat to remove; it is best for patients who want to eliminate a moderate amount of fat and reshape problem areas. An ideal CoolSculpting patient is someone who:

  • Has reached or is near their goal weight
  • Seeks an effective, nonsurgical fat reduction option
  • Wants to remove a moderate amount of stubborn fat
  • Understands that CoolSculpting is not used to treat obesity
  • Has reasonable expectations
  • Wants to optimize their weight loss results

If you are currently struggling with your obesity, Dr. Hernried can help you reach a healthy weight before your CoolSculpting treatments to maximize your outcome.
