It’s called stubborn fat for a reason; no matter how healthy you eat and how much you exercise, it can be virtually impossible to lose those persistent muffin tops, love handles and belly pooches. You’re left with two options, right? Learn to live with them, or have surgery. Wrong! The staff of BA Med Spa & Weight Loss Center is thrilled to announce they are offering a new service for people who want to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat, without undergoing surgery or experiencing any downtime. CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq is an innovative, non-surgical technology that targets and cools unwanted fat cells in a selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat.
Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, no anesthesia, no surgery and no downtime. Patients often spend time reading, working on their laptops or simply relaxing while undergoing this “lunchtime” treatment. “CoolSculpting is a 60-minute procedure, so you can do it on your lunch break, and because there is no downtime you can return to work right after,” says Malissa Spacek, managing partner of BA Med Spa. “We’re very excited to be offering this incredible technology for our patients.”
Developed by Harvard scientists, this procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen – your healthy cells remain healthy. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body.
CoolSculpting is safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results seen after one to three months. Treatment areas may include the abdomen, upper abdomen, love handles, bra line, inner thighs and backs of thighs. “You can even treat multiple areas at one time,” adds Malissa.
CoolSculpting was featured on “The Rachael Ray Show,” as well as “The Dr. Oz Show.” Dr. Oz described the procedure as a “game changer” in the fight against fat. Examining before and after photos, he commented, “I was flabbergasted. These are huge changes.”
Combined with diet and exercise, CoolSculpting is an amazing solution that eliminates the stubborn lumpiness and unwanted pockets of fat most of us can never seem to get rid of no matter how hard we try. After a few months, you will see an approximate 20 percent reduction in fat – your clothes will fit more loosely and you’ll look and feel better. How cool is that?
BA Med Spa & Weight Loss Center offers a variety of weight loss programs, cosmetic procedures and enhancements to give you a healthy, beautiful confidence this holiday season.
