Does CoolSculpting Really Work?- Charleston, SC 

One of the most common questions about CoolSculpting is whether or not it actually works in destroying fat. The answer is that, yes, CoolSculpting does work. With advanced technology, CoolSculpting effectively removes fat cells and can smooth and tighten your skin. Before you have a CoolSculpting procedure, talk to your doctor and make sure that you are a good candidate.

CoolSculpting results


CoolSculpting is a procedure that can remove excess or unwanted fat from your body. The treatment can be used on almost any part of your body, including your arms, back, thighs, chin, and abdominal region. CoolSculpting is the perfect option for people who have tried to lose weight through diet and exercise, but they just can’t seem to shed those last few pounds. In Charleston, SC, there are many plastic surgery practices that offer different kinds of non-invasive fat-removing procedures. These other treatments use sonic waves and lasers to destroy the cellular structure of fat cells. In this process, these procedures end up damaging other cells. CoolSculpting, however, uses a completely different process known as cryolipolysis. Cryopolysis works to eliminate fat cells differently by using cold temperatures to target fat cells underneath the skin. Through this process, we can zero in on the fat cells without harming other cells and the surface of the skin. This ensures effective fat elimination while leaving your skin healthy and happy. After the procedure, your body will naturally remove the damaged fat cells and leave you with smoother, younger-looking skin. This procedure is non-invasive, so it doesn’t require needles, surgery, or downtime.

How Long Will My Facial Fillers Last?- Charleston, SC 

There are several different types of facial fillers that do everything from adding volume and hydration to your skin to plumping your lips. These varying types of filler each have their advantages and disadvantages and it really depends on the patient and their skin to choose the one that is right for them. Because all of these procedures are different, the results are not all going to last for the same amount of time. Typically, facial fillers last from a few months to several years or more.
