This non-invasive cooling technology can blast away unwanted fat from the body.

Getting rid of a little unwanted body fat here and there can often be more challenging than simply eating right and exercising. While we wish that we could kickbox away fat around the abdomen or love handles, for some people these healthy habits simply aren’t enough. For those who have tried everything and still can’t get rid of stubborn, unwanted fat, our Dayton, OH, doctor Dr. Christopher Sesslar may recommend CoolSculpting.

What is CoolSculpting?

This non-invasive, nonsurgical system uses cooling technology (also known as Cryolipolysis®) that breaks down fat cells in certain areas of our body without affecting the healthy tissue around it. Over the course of a few months, you will notice a permanent fat reduction in commonly treated areas including:

  • Back
  • Flank (“love handles”)
  • Abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Bra line
  • Upper arms

Virtually, any part of the body can be treated with CoolSculpting.

What should I expect from my CoolSculpting treatment?

When you come into our Dayton, OH, med spa for your first CoolSculpting treatment, we will first place an applicator onto the area of the body that you wish to treat. This applicator is controlled by our CoolSculpting monitoring system, which will transmit energy waves to destroy fat cells permanently. The procedure is painless and can be performed in under 35 minutes.

Are there any side effects of treatment?

Since this is a non-invasive technique you will be allowed to return to your daily activities without restrictions. You may notice some redness in the treated areas, but this shouldn’t last more than a few hours. You may also experience bruising or swelling, which will subside after a few weeks.

What will my results look like? How long will my results last?

About two to four months after CoolSculpting, the patient will notice a considerable fat reduction in the targeted areas. After the first two to four months, those who are looking to gain even more fat reduction may opt for additional CoolSculpting treatments. Of course, it’s important to know that it can take up to six months to see the full results. Since fat cells are destroyed, results are considered permanent.

Who should consider getting CoolSculpting?

This procedure is recommended for those who are healthy and fit but still experience pockets of fat in areas that diet and exercise just don’t seem to change. This is not considered an alternative to weight loss nor will it be helpful for someone who is obese. This is also not an alternative to liposuction.

Spa Medicca is one of the Top 250 cosmetic practices in the US and we’re ranked in the top 1 percent of the US for cosmetic procedures such as CoolSculpting.

We have patients from around the world come to our Dayton, OH, practice for CoolSculpting and other cosmetic procedures. Dr. Sesslar and his team can help you get your ideal bikini body in time for summer. To schedule an evaluation, call (937) 312-9212.

CoolSculpting is an innovative body contouring treatment for eliminating unwanted fat cells. This non-surgical procedure involves freezing away fat cells in targeted areas of the body. We offer CoolSculpting at Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, where Dr. Christopher Sesslar can determine if you are a candidate for this exciting new body contouring treatment.

How CoolSculpting Works

CoolSculpting can be thought of as a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction for removing stubborn fat that has been difficult to shed through traditional diet and exercise methods. It is an excellent option for individuals who are uncomfortable undergoing a surgical body contouring procedure. CoolSculpting is an effective method for removing unwanted fat cells from various areas of the body, including the belly, buttocks, thighs, and arms. CoolSculpting patients in Dayton use it to treat love handles or a double chin.

The way CoolSculpting works is by freezing fat cells in the area being targeted. This method is so effective because fat tissue freezes at a higher temperature than other tissues in the body. What that means is that the fat cells crystallize more quickly, which allows the CoolSculpting equipment to readily target fat cells without affecting other tissues in the body. The body sees frozen fat cells as dead tissue. Its natural response is to eliminate these dead tissues by gradually flushing the fat cells out of the body over time.

Since it does take time for the body to remove the frozen fat cells, your body contouring results will not be immediately visible after your CoolSculpting treatment at our med spa in Dayton. Most patients can see significantly noticeable results within about two months following treatment. Although, some patients have been able to observe a more contoured body in as little as three weeks. Results can potentially continue improving for up to six months after undergoing CoolSculpting.

If you are interested in a nonsurgical body contouring option, CoolSculpting could be just what you are looking for. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Christopher Sesslar to learn more about CoolSculpting by calling Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, at (937) 312-9212.

CoolSculpting is an exciting alternative to liposuction for removing unwanted fat. The procedure is nonsurgical and works by freezing away coolsculptingfat in targeted areas of the body. CoolSculpting is available at Spa Medicca serving the Dayton, OH area in Centerville, OH, where Dr. Christopher Sesslar and the experienced medical spa staff can help you decide if CoolSculpting is right for you.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical method for eliminating stubborn fat cells in certain areas of the body. In a nutshell, CoolSculpting is the non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It is an excellent fat removal option for individuals uncomfortable with the idea of undergoing a surgical procedure for cosmetic reasons. CoolSculpting can be used to remove fat cells from the belly, buttocks, arm, and thigh areas. CoolSculpting can also be used to target such problems as love handles and the dreaded double chin.

CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells in the problem area. The cells in fat tissue freeze at a higher temperature than other types of tissue within the body, which means fat cells crystallize or freeze more quickly than other types of cells. This allows the CoolSculpting equipment to easily target fat cells without affecting other cells or tissues in the body. Once frozen, the body naturally works to eliminate the frozen fat cells as they have become dead tissue. The body recognizes the need to remove dead tissue materials and will flush the fat cells out over time.

Results of Cool Sculpting treatment are not immediately visible right after an appointment. It takes time for the body to process the dead fat cells and work them out of the body. Some patients are able to observe noticeable changes in the targeted areas of their body in as little as three weeks following treatment. The most noticeable results tend to be readily visible about two months after treatment, with positive results potentially continuing for up to six months. In Dayton, CoolSculpting fat removal is available at Spa Medicca.

CoolSculpting fat removal technology is an exciting non-surgical method for sculpting a better body. It allows you to literally freeze away unwanted fat.
