Body sculpting procedures reshape your silhouette. Whether it is excess skin after massive weight loss, stubborn fat that no amount of exercise can eliminate, or the desire to get your pre-pregnancy body back, body contouring is customized to address your specific concerns.
The CoolSculpting procedure delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
SculpSure heats the underlying fat and initiates a process that leads to the loss of fat cells. The SculpSure laser raises the temperature of fat cells damaging their structural integrity. Over the next three months, the damaged fat cells are processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. Fat cells are permanently removed and will not regenerate. Results can be seen as quickly as six weeks, and optimal results typically seen at 12 weeks.
The CoolMini is part of the CoolSculpting family. It is a small applicator custom designed to treat small pockets of fat. It is ideally shaped to treat the fat under the chin, but it can also be used to treat any small pocket of fat, including fat around the knees, arms, shoulders, and back. CoolMini treatments take 45 minutes each, and a patient will receive either one or two treatments during their appointment.
The Body Thermage CPT procedure is a new method to tighten, lift, and smooth the skin of the body. At the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center, we are using the Body Thermage CPT procedure to tighten, lift, and smooth the skin of the abdomen, which is commonly loose after pregnancy and weight loss, and the skin of the thighs. Anyone with mild to moderate laxity of the skin in these areas is a good candidate for the Body Thermage CPT.
