Body Contouring

What is Coolsculpting®?

Coolsculpting® is an FDA-cleared alternative to surgical liposuction that uses Cryolipolysis fat-freezing technology to safely and effectively kill unwanted fat cells. No anesthetic is needed, and no incisions need to be made. You can return to your regular routine right after being treated. With targeted cooling, your fat is safely chilled to damage the fat cells without harming any of your surrounding skin or tissue. During the weeks that follow the treatment, your body will naturally eliminate the damaged fat cells, leaving you looking slimmer.

Sit back and relax while we remove your stubborn fat.

What happens during your treatment?

Coolsculpting® is a completely non-surgical procedure. When you come in for your procedure our Coolsculpting® staff will place a protective gel pad over the treatment area. Once you are comfortable, the Coolsculpting® device will use a combination of gentle vacuum pressure and cooling to treat the fat below the skin and freeze and kill the unwanted fat cells. The most common areas we treat are the waist, thighs, "saddlebags", abdomen, "love handles" and "muffin tops."

The treatment time takes about an hour, in which most of our patients relax comfortably in our customized Coolsculpting® relaxation rooms. Read a book, surf the Internet or even watch a movie on one of our private wide screen televisions. Our goal is to make your treatment time as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?

Yes, right away. Since Coolsculpting® is completely non-surgical you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Most times patients return to work after the session is over.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes in the treated areas as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Your CoolRenewal Spa treatment consultant will work with you to verify and document your results. Nothing says "WOW" more than your personal "Before and After" photos.

Are the results permanent?

During Coolsculpting®, the treated fat cells are eliminated. Once eradicated, they will not reappear if healthy exercise and lifestyle are maintained.

MIC WITH B12 (LIPOTROPIC)

Injections are safe and effective adjunct to a supervised weight loss program. Injections are given once or twice a week to enhance weight loss. The natural ingredients of the MIC-B12 (lipotropic) injections are Methione, Inositol, Choline, and Vitamin B12. This combination has been reported to increase fat metabolism and mobilization by the liver. Some case reports show this combination to improve weight loss by up to 1 additional pound per week. Combining these "Lipotropic" co-enzymes and amino acids allow the liver to metabolize fat and mobilize fat for elimination and excretion. MIC-B12 works best if combined with a sensible diet and exercise program. MIC-B12 is recommended to be given once or twice a week for the duration of intended weight loss. Other than injection site irritation, the natural ingredients show no side effects.

B-12 micMethionine is an essential amino acid, which means that it is not synthesized in humans. This means it must be consumed. Foods that contain high levels of methionine include cheese, eggs, fish, meats, spinach, potatoes, Brazil nuts, sesame seeds and some other plant seeds. However, by injecting Methionine into the muscle we can improve the absorption in the body's tissues and this is believed to result in more effective mobilization and elimination of abnormal fat deposits.

Inositol helps to maintain proper energy and nutrient transfer across the cell membrane. It also acts as a lipotropic which converts fat into other useful products. Inositol helps establish healthy cell membranes. It is naturally found in foods such as nuts, beans, grains, cantaloupe and oranges. It is more effective in breaking down fat when given as an intramuscular injection.

Choline is a natural amine that is involved in the synthesis of carnitine, cell membrane phospholipids and neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Without choline, fats can become trapped in the liver, where they can block normal metabolic functions. Choline is found in peanuts, soybeans, wheat, chicken, fish, beef, cauliflower, eggs and lettuce.

We strongly encourage eating a sensible diet and participating in an exercise program with the use of the MIC-B12.

The MIC-B12 is not recommended for patients with allergies to sulfa.

Patients with liver or kidney impairment cannot take the MIC-B12.

Vitamin B12

B-12 is important for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system and formation of the blood.  B-12 assists with skin cell renewal.  We recommend both B-12 and MIC B-12 for those patients who are considering skin renewal services such as (microdermabrasion, chemical peeling, laser skin resurfacing, or laser skin rejuvenation) as this helps with skin cell turnover.  B-12 is also involved in providing an elevatoin in energy levels.  This energy boost can provide a "pick-me-up" to increase metabolism and burn more calories.
