A revolutionary treatment that freezes fat cells so that they die naturally and are discarded by the body is taking Baton Rouge by storm. With over 26 available clinics offering coolsculpting in Baton Rouge as an option to get rid of cellulite instead of surgically invasive procedures like liposuction, this new medical procedure is proving to be a very popular choice for those who need a little help in contouring their bodies.
The procedure was introduced to the Louisiana area scarcely more than a year ago by Dr. Ann Zedlitz. Dr. Zedlitz, owner of Z Aesthetic Dermatology , was excited about the procedure due to the promising clinical studies and was keen to offer a procedure which offered far fewer risks than current procedures along with the benefits of shorter downtimes. Since the introduction of the treatment by Dr. Zedlitz and in that relatively short space of time, clinics which offer the procedure have mushroomed.
And its no wonder that this type of therapy is fast becoming the most popular choice for getting rid of stubborn cellulite. The treatment is totally non-invasive. There are no needles needed, no potentially harmful surgery and there is little to no recovery time needed after the procedure. In fact this technology is proving so popular, that companies like Solta who are market rivals of this technology are being sold while Zeltiq’s total revenue rose by sixty five last year.
So what are the benefits that make this procedure so popular?
As mentioned earlier, this body sculpting technique is non-evasive, involves no surgery or needles and has a relatively quick recovery time for the patient. It can also be very selectively applied which means that as a therapy it can specifically target problem areas like legs, arms and or thighs, making it a more precise option where it comes to body contouring. The applicator is fairly small and the treatment can target specific areas whilst leaving surrounding tissue intact. Patients can begin to see results after a few short weeks and for those who don’t have hours to spend in the gym, this procedure makes complete affordable sense.
Side effects of the procedure are also relatively mild compared with similar procedures. What you can expect after a session of coolsculpting is:
• A small amount of nausea or dizziness;
• That the treated area may be red for a few hours;
• A small amount of bruising, swelling and tenderness at the treated area;
• That the treated area may lose some sensation for a short period;
• That the treated area may feel bloated and may look swollen for a while;
• That the area may itch, feel numb, or you may experience mild pain.
Most, if not all of these side effects should disappear within a week or two of treatment along with a steady decrease in the thickness of the fat layer that has been treated with the therapy. The majority of patients begin to see results of their body contouring within a few weeks of treatment with dramatic results being visible from two months.
Based on the results and very few side effects, it’s no wonder that coolsculpting in Baton Rouge is fast becoming the standard medical procedure for the removal of cellulite.
