Facial Plastic Surgeon at Redondo Beach Med Spa Highlights Benefits of CoolSculpting

Dr. Keith Marcus of Marcus Medical Spa Discusses Several Advantages of Nonsurgical Fat Reduction via CoolSculpting

REDONDO BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2015) - In spite of consuming a healthy diet and exercising on a regular basis, some men and women simply cannot shed stubborn pockets of fat in particular regions of their bodies, states Dr. Keith Marcus, a facial plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. For individuals seeking to resolve these areas of concern without having to undergo a surgical procedure, he notes that CoolSculpting® can often be an excellent treatment option.

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment designed to significantly diminish and/or eliminate diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fatty tissue. At Marcus Medical Spa, Dr. Marcus says some of the most commonly targeted regions include the abdomen, back, arms, hips, and thighs. Compared to surgical alternatives such as liposuction, he suggests that key benefits of CoolSculpting® can include:

  • Fat reduction through non-invasive means
  • No special pretreatment preparation
  • A gentle, often relaxing treatment experience
  • No needles, incisions, or anesthesia
  • Little to no side effects, recovery, or downtime
  • Long-lasting, if not permanent, results

In regard to how CoolSculpting® works, Dr. Marcus explains that the procedure employs a unique scientific process known as "cryolipolysis," which is essentially the cold-related destruction of fat cells. During treatment, he says the CoolSculpting® device uses controlled cooling to take the temperature of fat cells down to a certain degree at which only they are affected. Once this temperature is reached, he continues, the targeted cells begin to freeze and die, eventually exiting the body through natural processes over the course of about two to four months.

Though CoolSculpting® can be an excellent fat reduction option for many individuals, Dr. Marcus notes that patients should be at or very near their desired weight prior to treatment, as this is not considered a weight loss procedure. Additionally, he states that men and women interested in non-surgical fat removal should consult with a qualified and experienced physician or specialist to not only ensure CoolSculpting® is right for them, but also to make certain they receive the safest, most effective care and attention throughout the treatment process.
