Coolsculpting vs. Lipo | Calabasas Medical Spa | Encino } Woodland HillsBoth CoolSculpting and liposuction seek to remove stubborn and undesirable fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. However, these two procedures use very different approaches to resolve the same problem.

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

 

Similar Treatment Goals

CoolSculpting and liposuction are both designed to achieved fat loss, but not weight loss. They are suitable only for people who are near or at their optimal weight and follow a balanced diet and exercise regimen.

CoolSculpting and liposuction can offer the patient the same outcomes as well, which is a slimmer, more toned physique which does not have unattractive bulges and love handles.

 

Different Treatment Approaches

Both procedures use completely different techniques to achieve the same body contouring and tightening outcomes. Liposuction is a surgical procedure where the surgeon manually eliminates the fatty tissue from the body through an incision on the skin. It involves the use of general anesthesia and a significant post-op recovery phase.

On the other hand, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive med spa treatment that does not involve sedation or incisions. Rather, the undesirable fat tissue is frozen. This tissue is slowly reabsorbed by the body through its natural processes. It is a safe and predictable treatment, and patients can immediately resume their normal activities.

Liposuction may create faster and more dramatic fat-loss outcomes in comparison to CoolSculpting. However, before considering liposuction, the patient should take into account the potential risks associated with surgery as well as the extended post-operative downtime.

 

Key Procedural Differences between CoolSculpting and Liposuction

Plastic surgeons have used liposuction as a traditional fat reduction technique for a number of years. The procedure involves the surgeon placing one or two tiny incisions on the skin near the treatment area and inserting a cannula (a thin, hollow tube).

They will then dislodge the targeted fat cells with a vibrating tip at the end of the cannula, and suction the fat deposits out through the cannula.

The patient undergoes this procedure under anesthesia. After the surgery, a majority of patients experience at least mild side effects such as inflammation and bruising and may need pain meds and antibiotics.

A typical liposuction procedure involves a recovery period of seven to ten days. Liposuction is sought-after and safe plastic surgery. But similar to any surgical procedure, it involves the risk of complications and major side effects.

CoolSculpting, on the other hand, freezes away fat in a safe and noninvasive manner. The CoolSculpting med spa treatment session involves drawing up the targeted fat cells between two panels. After that, the provider uses an applicator to deliver precise cooling to freeze the cells.

The undesirable fat cells die over the following three to four weeks and are reabsorbed by the body through its natural processes. CoolSculpting does not involve the use of incisions or anesthesia/sedation.

The time taken to complete the CoolSculpting procedure is around one hour. There is no post-treatment downtime. Therefore, patients can resume their normal routine immediately. It leaves the tissue surrounding the treatment area unharmed.

CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and an excellent option for people seeking to remove stubborn fatty pockets without the risk or downtime associated with an invasive surgical procedure.

CoolSculpting vs. Traditional Fat Reduction Surgeries

Liposuction, breast reduction, and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) are some traditional surgical procedures to achieve dramatic fat loss. These procedures can create excellent outcomes and may be suitable for some patients. However, they are all invasive surgical treatments.

Similar to any surgery, fat-reduction surgeries also involve the use of sedation/anesthesia and relatively long procedure times. They are also associated with significant post-surgical discomfort and extended recovery durations.

While developments in medical technology have made these procedures quite safe, there still exists some level of risk of complications developing. These limitations of traditional fat reduction techniques outweigh the benefits for many people. These patients will usually derive the most benefit from CoolSculpting treatments.

CoolSculpting provides fat removal and body shaping enhancements that are similar to plastic surgery, but without many of the disadvantages of surgery. It does not involve the use of sedation or anesthesia and accomplishes fat reduction and toning without any significant incisions, traumatic suction, or injections.

CoolSculpting med spa treatment prevents damage to the surrounding tissue as it treats only the undesirable fatty tissues. This mitigates the risk of side effects. On top of this, it enables the patient to resume their normal activities almost immediately after the treatment.

 

CoolSculpting vs. Other Non-invasive Fat Reduction Procedures

Surgical procedures involve significant risks, expense, and recovery durations. Therefore, it is no surprise that doctors, as well as patients, have aggressively sought innovative and noninvasive techniques for fat reduction.

Treatments such as ultrasound laser and RF have been in use for a number of years to address stubborn fatty deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.

Similar to CoolSculpting, these procedures also provide fat reduction and body contouring outcomes without the involvement of anesthesia, incisions, or injections and with minimal downtime.

But unlike CoolSculpting, these procedures use heat to melt away undesirable fat. Therefore, the patient faces the risk of burns, discomfort, pain, and other side-effects with these treatments.

On the other hand, CoolSculpting uses a cooling mechanism to freeze away fat. Therefore, it does not carry the risk of burns and potential complications related to heat-based procedures.

 

A Prudent Alternative

For patients who are unhappy with the appearance of stubborn fatty pockets that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting presents a safe, noninvasive way to achieve a more toned, slimmer physique with minimal interruption to their busy lifestyle.

Vaginal Rejuvenation - Boosting Women’s Confidence in Yoga Pants | CalabasasThe American Society for Aesthetic Surgery indicates that an increasing number of women are choosing cosmetic med spa procedures to enhance the appearance of their genital area. In recent years, there has been a significant rise in non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment requests.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Comfort and Confidence while Wearing Body Hugging Clothes

One factor motivating women who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their labia is the desire to appear more attractive in athletic wear such as yoga pants.

Yoga pants fit very snugly, and the tight-fitting spandex pants can accentuate large or distended vaginal lips. It can also cause the patient to feel self-conscious as well as experience physical chafing and discomfort during physical activity.

 

New Grooming Trends

Grooming trends may influence the rising demand for nonsurgical vaginal and labial rejuvenation procedures. The vaginal area may be left visibly exposed accentuating the size and shape of the labia with popular waxing techniques such as the Brazilian bikini wax.

Women who were earlier secure about the shape and size of their vaginal lips may suddenly find themselves feeling embarrassed about their labial area. Some common complaints from women with elongated or enlarged labia minora are:

  • Uneasiness during exercise
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Feeling self-conscious about their appearance
  • Difficulty wearing athletic wear and swimsuits

 

Candidacy

Any woman is a candidate for non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, regardless of whether the enlarged labia are the result of hormonal fluctuations, stretching during childbirth, or genetic reasons.

The treatment is minimally invasive and effectively tightens sagging or uneven labial tissue from the vaginal lips. The patient will undergo this procedure in-office under local anesthesia.

Not only do women undergoing the procedure not feel any pain, but they are also usually relaxed, chatting with the surgeon, watching a movie, or reading. In addition, the recovery period is minimal as well.

 

ThermiVa Vaginal Rejuvenation

It is natural for the skin to become loose as the elastin and collagen levels reduce due to the natural process of aging. The skin starts to sag and loses its youthful suppleness.

Skin laxity impacts not only facial skin, but it may affect skin on any part of the body, especially in areas with delicate skin. This includes the skin on and around the vagina.  

An experienced vaginal rejuvenation med spa provider will use the skin tightening attributes of ThermiVa to firm and tighten the vaginal skin. This helps restore a tauter, more youthful, and aesthetically appealing appearance in a nonsurgical manner.

 

How does it Work?

ThermiVa offers patients a safe skin tightening treatment that does not involve incisions. This treatment is gentle enough for the fragile skin of the vagina. However, it still creates dramatic skin tightening outcomes.

The patient undergoes the 20-minute ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation session comfortably and discreetly on an outpatient basis. It does not involve any post-treatment downtime.

 

ThermiVa Benefits

ThermiVa offers the following key benefits:

  • It stimulates the existing collagen and elastin fibers and instantly tightens and lifts the skin in the treatment site.
  • The collagen will continue to regenerate over the next few months and patients will experience the long-term skin firming outcomes of their ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
  • ThermiVa uses cutting-edge technology that features an integrated skin-cooling mechanism that prevents the skin from burning and ensures that patients remain comfortable during and following their session.

A majority of patients attain excellent vaginal skin tightening outcomes with three ThermiVa treatment sessions. But the patient’s level of skin laxity will determine the number of sessions that they require.
