What is non-invasive body contouring?

Non-invase body contouring does not require a cannula, a scalpel, a laser or an incision. Instead, an external applicator is used to reduce fat by focusing heat or cold energy below the surface of the skin. Several non-invasive technologies are currently FDA approved and available in the U.S. Because we like great results without pain or downtime,  Coolsculpting® by Zeltiq is Dr. Ridenour’s choice as the best non-invasive body contouring device available on the U.S. market today.

Why CoolSculpting? The Cool Solution is the More Natural Solution.

Procedures that use laser, sonic waves and even surgery to remove fat can actually destroy other tissue in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. This requires downtime for your body to heal. Totally uncool. Fortunately, CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. Developed by Harvard scientists, our unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells remain, well, healthy. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. In a few months, boom: say hello to a new you.

Minimal Downtime and Lasting Results

Unlike a lot of other procedures, CoolSculpting takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. After your CoolSculpting treatment you can typically get right back to your busy day. Each treatment lasts one hour – the same time you might spend at the gym. So you can easily fit your appointment into a lunch break. After one visit, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. And yes, you can lose even more with additional appointments if you and your doctor deem it necessary. So after a few months, your clothes will fit better and you will look better. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable. Hello, you again. How cool is that?

So, if you don’t quite feel like yourself.

Perhaps dresses don’t drape like they should. Jeans don’t fit well. Your washboard abs are covered by a load of laundry. It’s impossible to lose that muffin top or love handles. And there aren’t enough exercises or crunches you could possible do to lose that stubborn fat. Call us to make an appointment for Coolsculpting by Zeltiq. No incisions, no needles, no anesthesia and no time for recovery.
