Even prior to CoolSculpting Elite’s FDA approval for fat reduction, the Aesthetic Clinique was already using the device, although was called Zeltiq at that time. The date was late 2009 and Dr. Weiner became one of the first 20 offices in the country to begin freezing fat to permanently reduce undesirable fat pockets.
With more than 10 years of experience, The Aesthetic Clinique has performed more than 2000 treatments and is one of the most experienced medical facilities in the US. We have 3 CoolSculpting Elite University graduates treating our patients, with 2 of them having started from the beginning.
CoolSculpting Elite is a completely non-invasive procedure that can remove undesirable fat pockets permanently. The treatment involves placement of handpieces on the skin overlying the areas of fat that uses a suction/vacuum to remain attached. The fat needs to be “pinchable” and treatment is not suitable for visceral fat. The handpiece cools the fat to a proprietary temperature, which is safe for the overlying skin, muscle, and nerves but irreversibly harms the treated fat. In a process called apoptosis, the injured fat gradually dies and is degraded naturally by the body and eventually excreted. Research has shown that the treated area will lose approximately 25% of the fat permanently.
On the day of a CoolSculpting Elite treatment, there are initially several photos taken of the areas desiring improvement. The technician will fully assess the areas and give an estimate of how many cycles are needed and how many repeated treatments are needed. A cycle is an attachment of the handpiece and typically will last for 25 minutes. The double chin area and the large body handpiece is 45 minutes. The smooth handpieces for thighs requires 1.5 hours. A single treatment might require multiple cycles during the day of treatment. At the Aesthetic Clinique, we have 2 CoolSculpting Elite devices, and, in most instances (where the handpieces don’t “compete”), the treatment can be done twice as fast by attaching 2 handpieces at the same time. This process is called “DualSculpting”.
After the handpiece is removed, the skin is hard and looks like “a stick of butter.” Most clinics do manual massage at this point, but The Aesthetic Clinique treats the area with the Zimmer Z Wave, an acoustic shockwave device, that further enhances the results by up to 50%. This service is included complimentary with all treatments.
The Aesthetic Clinique is a beautiful facility and offers the absolute best treatments available. All of their staff goes above and beyond to make sure to understand what exactly the patients goal look they are trying to achieve. I would definitely recommend them anyone.
