CoolSculpting vs. SculpSureCoolSculpting has been popular body contouring and fat reduction medspa procedure for several years. SculpSure is another innovative non-surgical treatment that is slightly different from CoolSculpting. Both procedures have specific advantages and limitations.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides body contouring treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations across the horizon.

CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: Safety

Excellent cosmetic outcomes should not come at the price tag of safety. SculpSure and CoolSculpting have both been proven to be safe med spa procedures. These procedures are FDA-cleared for their efficacy and stellar outcomes.

CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: Results

CoolSculpting can remove up to 22 percent fat in the treatment sites in a period of a few weeks to few months after a single session.

SculpSure can remove up to 24 percent fat on the treatment site in a period of a few weeks to few months after a single session.

But outcomes from both procedures can vary between individuals, and just a two percent differential is hardly noticeable. Therefore, these numbers should not be a deciding factor between these treatments.

CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: Comfort

SculpSure is a comfortable treatment which does not involve numbing of the skin tissue. This is due to the precise and targeted treatment that the laser device allows. Similar to hair removal lasers that target the hair follicle without harming the surrounding skin, the SculpSure laser precisely targets only fat cells.

This treatment offers protection to the skin against any ambient heat via a smart cooling cycle. The SculpSure is also adjustable to a specific patient’s level of comfort. If a particular area feels too warm, the specific laser panel can be turned down. This will help attain a comfortable treatment.

CoolSculpting works by way of damaging fat cells with cold temperature. This treatment involves the use of a suction-based handpiece. Similar to the numbing felt after icing, certain patients may feel numbing during the treatment as well as immediately after the procedure.

On occasion, patients describe this numbing as mild discomfort. The new CoolSculpting CoolAdvantage system enables this procedure to be more comfortable with lesser reports of long-lasting numbness and tingling.

CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: Time Commitment

CoolSculpting utilizes a treatment handpiece that enables one site to be treated at a time. Every treatment cycle lasts from 35 minutes to one hour dependent on the type of handpiece used (the use of a specific handpiece depends on the treatment site and the patient’s unique anatomy).

SculpSure utilizes up to four laser treatments in a 25-minute sitting. If the patient’s desired areas of treatment are on opposite sides of their body, but they are small enough in terms of total area to be covered by two treatment panels, then both these areas can receive treatment simultaneously.

CoolSculpting vs. SculpSure: Limiting Factors

Of course, both these treatments may not be suitable for certain patients.

CoolSculpting warrants that the patient has “pinchable” fat (this implies that the skin should be loose enough in the fatty region to enable to the device to work efficiently). While this is the case for a majority of people, it may not be true for some individuals. The guideline for a CoolSculpting procedure is that the patient should have a minimum of one inch of fat for the treatment to work.

SculpSure can help patients with smaller fat deposits, even if they do not have loose skin. Both these treatments are not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other communities and suburbs in this section of The Golden State for body contouring treatments.

Get Your Body Bikini Ready With Coolsculpting Body Contouring - Freeze the Fat Off!In summers, bikini season is in full bloom. But many women feel displeased with their body’s shape as well as the appearance of unattractive pockets of fat. They may not be able to enjoy the summer season in a bikini as much as they desire to.

Rejuvenate Med Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, offers innovative treatment such as CoolSculpting to decrease fat and assist women in making their bodies bikini-ready. CoolSculpting is an entirely non-surgical procedure for fat reduction.

Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive CoolSculpting at Rejuvenate Medical Spa.

Shapely Body with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure involving an innovative cooling process by Harvard scientists to freeze away the fat cells. The procedure works on the premise that fat cells react faster to cold temperatures and get eliminated through freezing, while the surrounding normal tissue remains intact.

After the patient decides on the procedure, the provider will place the CoolSculpting device in the areas of treatment on the body and use controlled cooling. The patient stays entirely comfortable during the treatment and can resume their normal routine right after the session.

Outcomes with CoolSculpting are visible and long-lasting. The fat cells killed through this procedure are eliminated for good. This enables the woman to enjoy a more sculpted figure that is completely bikini-ready freely.

Treatment Areas

Men and women can both find the CoolSculpting technique advantageous. This treatment can enable fat loss in precise areas such as the lower abdomen, upper arms, lower back, inner thighs, and bra roll. Now CoolSculpting offers the CoolMini technique. This new technique can help address stubborn pockets of fat in areas that are hard to access such as beneath the chin.

Treatment Sessions

A person, on an average, may need between 2 and 6 treatment sittings of CoolSculpting to attain their fat reduction objectives. Every sitting will be spaced apart a few weeks. The average treatment time for a single session is around 40 minutes when the latest CoolSculpting equipment is used.

A person requiring a more significant volume of fat cell reduction or having a higher fatty tissue density will typically need more sittings to attain their fat reduction objectives.

Developing Expectations

A patient who has realistic expectations will likely appreciate the outcomes of CoolSculpting better and feel more satisfied with their new figure. Patients who are overweight may not achieve significant enhancement or may require more treatment sittings to attain their fat reduction goals. But patients should understand that CoolSculpting is not a procedure meant for weight loss. It is a body contouring treatment.

CoolSculpting can enable women to reduce their waist circumference and make their bodies bikini-ready to enjoy the summer. Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other suburbs and cities in this area of The Golden State.

Conspicuous signs of facial aging such as smile lines can be improved with a range of proven med spa procedures.Reduce Facial Aging Like Smile Lines

Rejuvenate Medical Spa traditionally uses a combination of Botox, dermal fillers, lasers and threads to address facial aging signs such as sunspots, “smoker lines,” smile lines, and crow’s feet.

These traditional treatments have been successfully used for years, but now Rejuvenate also provides the innovative Renuvion cosmetic technology for reduction of smile lines, powered by J plasma treatment system. Led by Dr. Bijan Farah, Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides J Plasma facial anti-aging technique to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities across the landscape.

Advantages of J Plasma

As per Dr. Bijan Farah, J Plasma is similar to pushing a “reset” button on your skin. Surgical procedures such as facelift can lift and “reposition” facial skin.

However, there are many limitations of surgery, including risk, discomfort, downtime and cost. Also, a surgical facelift does not resurface the skin. This can leave the patient with the same, damaged and discolored facial skin.

On the other hand, J Plasma treatment dramatically contracts the skin and removes years of damage from facial skin in an efficient way. J Plasma for skin resurfacing can significantly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation, which may not be possible with traditional surgical facelifts. Additionally, the same device can smoothen and tighten neck and under eye skin.

J Plasma utilizes a gas plasma technology which is superior in comparison to a laser resurfacing. Rejuvenate med spa treatment providers may advise treatments for the full face.

But they also undertake spot treatment of the mouth, neck/jowl region, and eyes. J Plasma is a single, once-in-a-lifetime in-office treatment. Dr. Farah and his team perform this procedure in office under only tumescent and oral anesthesia.

Ideal Candidates

An ideal candidate for this procedure is any individual who wants to address problematic sites such as:

  • Age Spots
  • Pigmented facial skin
  • Imprinted lines or Wrinkles
  • Acne Scars
  • Sunspots
  • Melasma

How does J Plasma Work?

Plasma refers to an energy state generated by adding energy to a gas. J Plasma is an advanced energy device that creates a combination of cold helium plasma and RF energy.

The helium plasma centers RF energy for higher control of tissue effect. This leads to a highly targeted procedure that almost eliminates unintended trauma to the tissue. Dr. Farah utilizes a wand to gently “paint” the treatment areas with plasma energy.

Are there side effects, and what to expect post-treatment?

Though the treatment is relatively painless, the downtime and recovery process can take around two to three weeks. During the initial few weeks after the procedure, patients may experience minor inflammation, redness, skin peeling, and itching.

Recovery at home for a few days is vital to protect the skin and attain ideal outcomes. J Plasma is hyper-focused, which significantly decreases pain, hyperpigmentation, burn scars, and other such standard side-effects associated with laser procedures. A majority of patients describe a pain-free recovery.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other neighborhoods and towns in this region of the state for J Plasma for facial smile lines reduction.
