Fat Freezing in Kansas City
Achieve a more sculpted you—more easily than ever.
While liposuction has dominated the fat removal industry for decades, recently, new technologies have allowed us to be able to provide non-surgical, non-invasive treatments for less cost and a shorter recovery time.
In the 21st century, many men and women are opting for non-surgical fat removal methods to treat different areas of their body. If you’re living a healthy lifestyle, but still experiencing trouble areas of the body with stubborn fat, you may want to consider fat freezing in Kansas City as an option.
What is fat freezing in Kansas City?
Fat freezing in Kansas City, also known as Cryolipolysis, is a specific technique of lipolysis (the elimination of fat cells) that uses the process of freezing individual fat cells to reduce or entirely shed problem areas, such as stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Fat freezing in Kansas City can be used on a variety of areas of the body; we like to say, “If you can squeeze it—We can freeze it!” These areas include:
- Under the chin
- Love handles
- Under the bra
- Inner & outer thighs
- Upper Arms
- And more
A brief history of fat freezing techniques
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University discovered Cryolipolysis entirely by accident. They observed that some children who frequently ate popsicles experienced a loss of fat cells in their cheeks over time, sometimes even resulting in dimples. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.
The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
They were able to patent a new technology to perform a similar procedure on different areas of the body, and obtain FDA Clearance in 2016.
How does fat freezing in Kansas City work?
We go through life with the same number of fat cells; typically, this number is set during our adolescence. Over time, as we intake calories, age, and go through other biological processes (such as pregnancy), these fat cells expand and change our outer appearance.
Over 6 million fat freezing treatments have been performed nationwide using CoolSculpting, which we offer at our Leawood / Overland Park medical spa. But how does it work?
Losing weight versus losing fat cells
The process of losing weight does not eliminate fat cells. When we diet and exercise, these fat cells do become smaller; however, the actual number of cells does not change. Even those living a healthy lifestyle may have stubborn areas of fat that are not affected by diet or exercise.
That’s where fat freezing in Kansas City comes in. Rather than the “shrinking” process that normally occurs during regular diet and exercise, CoolSculpting ensures fat cells are eliminated altogether. While this loss of fat cells does not contribute to “weight loss” in the sense that the number you see on a scale would not be affected, it does mean looking and feeling slimmer in your own clothes.
For more information on weight loss versus fat cell loss, check out the official CoolSculpting website.
Fat cells are more susceptible to temperature (more so than our muscles, skin, and nerves) which makes “freezing” a perfect procedure to isolate and eliminate these cells.
The experts at Aestheticare Leawood are here to help clarify the CoolSculpting process so our clients across Kansas City better understand how CoolSculpting may help them resolve stubborn areas of fat.
Before your appointment: Creating a Treatment Plan
Our aestheticians will help you create an individualized plan based on your specific goals and target treatment areas. Many clients have one or two places they have always been self-conscious about, but have been otherwise unsuccessful at sculpting or reducing. Your Aestheticare expert will listen to your wants, needs, and concerns, and tailor a plan that will work to achieve your ideal body sculpting goals. This may mean using multiple applicators at once, or setting up a timeline for multiple treatments over a period of time.
Step 1: A Consultation at Aestheticare
Before your treatment can be administered, the experts at Aestheticare will record your vitals, weight, and measurements at our Overland Park medical spa. We will walk you through the process and what to expect, including how much pain will be involved for your particular treatment and when to expect results. Then, your aesthetician will use a marker to ensure exact placement of the device.
Step 2: Placing the Gel Sheet
After we determine exactly what areas we are treating, your CoolSculpting specialist will place a gel sheet over the treatment area to protect the skin from the cooling technology. This gel sheet allows efficient and effective fat freezing in Kansas City without damage to the skin.
Step 3: Activating the Device
Once the gel sheet is in place, your aesthetician will place the device and its suction cup over the previously marked areas. This cup provides a suction motion in order to draw the undesired fat cells away from your body and apply cooling panels to the treatment area.
Step 4: Fat Freezing in Kansas City
The fat freezing process will take between 35-75 minutes, depending on the size of the area of treatment. At the start of the the treatment, you may experience pressure or a cool tingling sensation. This normally disappears after a few minutes as the area is numbed by the cool temperate of the device.
Many of our clients receive other aesthetic procedures during this time; others choose to read a book, watch TV, listen to music, or take a nap.
Step 5: Administering Complementary Treatments
Once the procedure is completed and the device has been removed, your aesthetician may apply a Z-Wave treatment to the area to enhance the results of fat freezing in Kansas City.
Step 6: Schedule a Follow-up Assessment
Our Aestheticare team will schedule you a follow-up appointment after your procedure to ensure you’ve achieved the results you want, to take the “after” of your before and after pictures, and discuss the next steps in your long-term health plan.
Risks, recovery, and side effects
Fat freezing in Kansas City from AesthetiCare Leawood has not produced any concerning side effects outside of minor effects at the site of the procedure. Afterwards, the skin may be red, cold, numb, or tingling. However, these side effects resolve on their own after the procedure, though some clients may experience them for up to 2-3 weeks after the procedure.
Clients are able to resume normal activities immediately following the procedure, including exercise, work, and more.
Because the fat cells are gone for good, it means that unless you were to gain weight, results of fat freezing in Kansas City should be long lasting, if not permanent. Most clients see changes and results to their treatment areas within 2-3 months after they receive a fat freezing treatment in Kansas City at Aestheticare Leawood (Overland Park).
Because of this timeline, we see many clients around the holidays. CoolSculpting is the perfect way to feel prepared for upcoming events where you want to look your best and feel confident in your own skin.
