CoolSculpting The Neck Area – Charleston SC

CoolSculpting – Procedure for the Neck

Coolsculpting Neck Area  Before and After Pictures

 

For those individuals who are interested in removing unwanted fat, few non-invasive procedure options are available to choose from. It is always suggested to speak with your physician and dermatologist before undergoing any procedure that will change your body’s structure/appearance. CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis utilizes extreme cool temperatures to help break down fat cells underneath the surface of the skin to help smooth out the surface and reduce signs of cellulite.

 

It has been scientifically proven through various different studies that subcutaneous fat cells are more prone to being affected by cold temperatures than any other tissue in the area.

 

  • Fat Cell Apoptosis – this is a natural reaction, which can also be looked at as a way to control cell death underneath the skin. When fat cells die, the body naturally figures out a way to eliminate the cells that have been damaged through the release of inflammatory mediators and cytokines.

 

  • Inflammatory Cells – These inflammatory cells will pretty much absorb and digest the dead cells after the CoolSculpting procedure takes place therefore offering a thinner layer of fat.

 

The Neck and Décolletage

 

Utilizing specific tools and techniques, the dermatologist can specify and target the area that is being affected. More often than not, people will want to utilize CoolScultping on their neck and décolletage to present a younger more refreshed appearance. With age, the eye region and neck area tends to start to droop, the elasticity in the skin begins to change, and fine lines and wrinkles start to present themselves.

This can be damaging to one’s self esteem and can be countered quickly with a couple visits to the dermatologist. Although the effects of CoolSculpting are not permanent, they work very well in helping one achieve the desired look they are going for.

ThermiSmooth Skin Procedure – Charleston SC

ThermiSmooth – General Procedure

 

ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes heat to smooth out your skin’s appearance. A specially designed tool is used during the process that allows for the doctor or technician administering the ThermiSmooth process to have precise and direct control over the areas that are being treated. Many patients have been pleased with the results of ThermiSmooth and have stated that rather than it hurting, it feels like a massage!

 

Collagen

 

Collagen reacts to heat and shrinks when sustained over a certain amount of time, which has also been known to help stimulate new collagen growth. Utilizing the special tool used to administer the ThermiSmooth procedure minimizes any risks of overheating or causing permanent damage to the area.

A gel will be applied to the area that is going to be smoothed out and then the tool heated to about (42 – 45 degrees Celsius) will be swept over the skin’s surface. A small area will be treated for no more than 5 minutes, limiting to 5 minutes will ensure that that the area is not overworked.   The ThermiSmooth process will continue to be worked on until the desired results are achieved.

 

By tightening and stimulating new collagen growth, the patients that choose to undergo ThermiSmooth therapy  appear to have younger, fresher, tighter looking skin. A rejuvenated appearance can enhance one’s self-confidence dramatically. This procedure is generally used on areas on the face, the neck, underneath one’s eyes, on their forehead and around the mouth region. These particular areas are generally the first to lose some elasticity therefore leaving fines lines and creases as you age.

 

Setting up a ThermiSmooth Consultation

 

During the consultation appointment with your plastic surgeon you can discuss your concerns, talk about your expectations, as discuss the best treatment options available to you. More than likely, the dermatologist or physician will carefully examine your problem areas and make a determination on whether or not you would be a good candidate for ThermiSmooth.
