San Diego CoolSculpting for Body Contouring and Liquid Facelift: Veering Away from Surgery
A new (and quite ironic) invasion has swept the nation: minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that 13,447,933 cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures were done in 2013. That’s excluding relatively new treatments like CoolSculpting, which was done 425,000 times around the globe last year.
While still prevalent, going under the knife for beauty has been a choice that many shy away from, and its nonsurgical counterparts are getting much of the limelight. Reputable cosmetic physicians like P. Alexander Ataii M.D. of Laser Clinique have been advocating for these techniques, so patients can veer away from surgery but still enjoy optimal long-lasting results.
Freezing Fat Away, No Nicks or Needles Needed
Forget about burning fat; with San Diego CoolSculpting, you can literally freeze your fat away. The innovative technology also forgoes the need for needles and incisions, which makes the process less uncomfortable. Take a look at this clipped portion of a CBS NEWS article for more about the procedure:
The process of CoolSculpting feels like ice because this device is freezing the fat cells directly below it. Once they’re frozen, the fat cells naturally drain from the body. It can take 8 to 12 weeks to see the results, but a patient can lose at least an inch from his or her waistline after just one one-hour treatment.
Aside from being painless, the best part of the treatment is that you will not have any downtime. Patients frequently rave about the procedure, as it allows them to immediately resume their everyday errands or work, and it won’t require the additional costs of anesthesia and recovery time.
Liquid Lifts: Smoothen Sagging Skin without Surgery
A liquid facelift in San Diego takes center stage in contouring the face without cuts or scars. It involves the use of injectable dermal fillers that have been scientifically proven in producing lifting or plumping effects to correct wrinkled or sagging skin and facial features that are too hollow.
Advanced hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm Voluma and Sculptra Aesthetic replace the lost volume of the skin, while injectable fillers like Radiesse stimulate the collagen production beneath the skin to fill in prominent folds. These dermal fillers may be used together with Botox or Dysport to enhance the results. The natural-looking outcomes can last for a few months up to a few years at most, which means you can enjoy a more radiant and youthful appearance longer without ever undergoing the knife.
