COOLSCULPTING AND CRYOLYPOLISIS
What is the difference between Coolsculpting and or Cryolypolisis?
CoolSculpting is the same as Cryolypolisis. Skin Matters has done 100's of Coolsculpting services since 2017. We now offer Cryolypolisis because it is the same procedure and we can offer it for a quarter of the price.
What is it?
CoolSculpting and Cryolypolisis is a nonsurgical cooling technique used to reduce fat in targeted areas. It’s based on the science of cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis uses cold temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells. The procedure was created to address specific areas of stubborn fat not responsive to diet and exercise. It targets fat cells on inner and outer thigh, abdomen, sides, upper arms, and chin. The procedure is non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia. Over 4,000,000 procedures have been done around the world to date. You may experience temporary side effects, which should go away within a few days following treatment. Side effects may include swelling, bruising, and sensitivity. Cryolypolisis may not be right for you if you have a history of Raynaud’s disease or severe sensitivity to cold temperatures.
It is a noninvasive fat reduction procedure that involves no anesthesia, needles, or incisions. It’s based on the principle of cooling subcutaneous fat to the point that the fat cells are destroyed by the cooling process and absorbed by the body. Subcutaneous fat is the layer of fat just under the skin.
How long does it take? The procedure lasts 1 to 3 hours. Since our new unit has more paddles you can get more then one area done at the same time. recovery time is minimal. Normal day-to-day activities can resume almost immediately after the procedure.
How much does is cost? Typical Coolsculpt treatments cost between $2,000 and $4,000. However with our new Cryolipolysis unit you will never pay more then $300 per area.
How well does it work?
Average results are a 20 to 80 percent fat reduction following a single cryolipolysis procedure in treated areas. About 82 of people who underwent the treatment would recommend it to a friend.
How does CoolSculpting/Cryolypolsis work?
CoolSculpting stems from the science of cryolipolysis, which uses the cellular response to cold to break down and actually burst fat cells. During the months after treatment, the digested fat cells are sent to the lymphatic system to be filtered out as waste. The device has applicators that look similar to the nozzles of a vacuum cleaner. During the treatment, the healthcare provider will apply a gel pad and applicator to the targeted area. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. The provider will then move the device over your skin while administering suction and cooling technology to the target area. It’s common to experience some feelings of pulling and pinching during the process, but overall the procedure involves minimal pain. The provider typically will massage the treated areas immediately after treatment to breakup any frozen deep tissue. This will help your body begin to absorb the destroyed fat cells.
What areas can be treated with Cryolypolysis?
Upper and lower abdomen inner and outer thighs flanks (or love handles) arms chin area (or double chin) bra and back fat underneath the buttocks (or banana roll) .
How safe is Cryolypolysis?
As a noninvasive procedure, Cryolypolsis is relatively safe. Common side effects during the procedure include: sensations of intense cold tingling stinging pulling aching cramping These should all subside once the treatment area is numb. After treatment you may experience temporary side effects that usually go away within the next few days. These side effects include: redness swelling bruising tenderness aching cramping skin sensitivity. You should also be counseled about the risks and benefits of the procedure if you have Raynaud’s disease or severe sensitivity to cold temperatures. What to expect after CoolSculpting There is little to no recovery time after a CoolSculpting procedure. Most people are approved to resume normal day-to-day activity immediately after. In some cases, some minor redness or soreness may occur in the area treated, but all minor side effects typically subside within a few weeks. Results in the treated areas may be noticeable within three weeks of the procedure. Typical results are reached after two or three months, and the fat-flushing process continues for up to six months after the initial treatment. Certain people and areas of the body may require more than one treatment. Typically each area needs at least two treatments. CoolSculpting doesn’t treat obesity and shouldn’t replace a healthy lifestyle. Continuing to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly is crucial to maintaining results.

Lipo laser or Liposuction:
Traditional liposuction requires an invasive procedure to remove fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, neck, and arms. But there's another way to slim down without surgery or even downtime.
What is Lipo Laser?
Lipo Laser is non invasive, and it relies on laser energy instead of incisions to slim the body quickly and with minimal effort on the part of the patient. Sometimes the term "laser lipo" is used to describe conventional surgical liposuction that incorporates lasers to enhance the results. Unlike conventional liposuction, the idea of noninvasive laser lipo is not to remove fat cells, but to shrink them. During each session a technician places pads equipped with laser diodes directly onto the skin. The laser energy penetrates down to the fat cells and creates tiny holes in their membranes. This causes the fat cells to release their stored fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the body and then shrink, potentially resulting in lost inches. The body then flushes out the expelled fat-cell contents via the lymphatic system or burns them for energy. "Think of your fat cells as groups of juicy grapes, the laser beam reaches the fat cell and shrinks the contents, and those grapes become raisins.
Who's eligible for laser-lipo?
The pool of ideal candidates for laser lipo is a little bit smaller than for traditional lipo because the procedure isn't perfect for extensive weight loss. It might be right for you if you're: Only about 25 pounds over your ideal weight More concerned with "problem areas" than total-body weight loss In good health with good skin elasticity Still not sure?
