Dr. Keith Marcus of Marcus Medical Spa discusses several advantages of nonsurgical fat reduction via CoolSculpting.
Redondo Beach, CA — In spite of consuming a healthy diet and exercising on a regular basis, some men and women simply cannot shed stubborn pockets of fat in
particular regions of their bodies, states Dr. Keith Marcus, a facial plastic surgeon in
Los Angeles. For individuals seeking to resolve these areas of concern without having to undergo a surgical procedure, he notes that CoolSculpting® can often be an excellent treatment option.
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment designed to significantly
diminish diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fatty tissue. At Marcus Medical Spa, Dr.
Marcus says some of the most commonly targeted regions include the abdomen, back, arms, hips, and thighs. Compared to surgical alternatives such as
liposuction, he suggests that key benefits ofCoolSculpting® can include:
- Fat reduction through non-invasive means
- No special pretreatment preparation
- A gentle, often relaxing treatment experience
- No needles, incisions, or anesthesia
- Little to no side effects, recovery, or downtime
- Long-lasting, if not permanent, results
In regard to how CoolSculpting® works, Dr. Marcus explains that
the procedure employs a unique scientific process known as “cryolipolysis,” which is essentially the cold-related destruction of fat cells. During treatment,
he says the CoolSculpting® device uses controlled cooling to take the temperature of fat cells down to a certain degree at which only they are
affected. Once this temperature is reached, he continues, the targeted cells begin to freeze and die, eventually exiting the body through natural processes
over the course of about two to four months.
Though CoolSculpting® can be an excellent fat reduction option for many individuals, Dr. Marcus notes that patients should be at or very near
their desired weight prior to treatment, as this is not considered a weight loss procedure. Additionally, he states that men and women interested in
non-surgical fat removal should consult with a qualified and experienced physician or specialist to not only ensure CoolSculpting® is right for
them, but also to make certain they receive the safest, most effective care and attention throughout the treatment process.
