Coolsculpting (Dualsculpting)

In recent years, non-invasive body contouring procedures have become more and more popular as, increasingly, people don’t have the time to spare for weeks of recovery after undergoing a surgical or liposuction procedure. In addition, non-invasive body sculpting technology has gotten more and more effective over the years. CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is one of the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedures available, due to its high level of effectiveness, short procedure time, and lack of downtime.

To learn more about the CoolSculpting procedure and to schedule your consultation, just call Ava MD at 310-843-9915 (Beverly Hills) or 310-828-2282 (Santa Monica)!

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that uses cryolipolysis technology to literally freeze away fat cells. Eliminating up to 20% of the fat in only one session, multiple sessions may be required depending on your cosmetic goal. During a procedure, the CoolSculpting applicator sucks in the area of fat to be treated, and proceeds to target and freeze fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. Previously, only “pinchable” areas of fat could be treated by CoolSculpting, but recently the CoolSmooth applicator was introduced, which can treat non-pinchable areas such as the thighs. CoolSculpting is a great procedure to reduce unwanted muffin top, love handles, spare tires, and saddlebag thighs.

The CoolSculpting procedure is quick and painless, and patients can feel free to read a book, listen to music, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during a session. One body contouring session takes one hour, and Ava MD dermatologists offers the option of DualSculpting as well. Normally, treating two sides of the body would take two hours or two treatment sessions with one machine. However, Dr. Ava and her associates have two machines in Beverly Hills which can be used at the same time, cutting treatment times or session numbers in half. She is one of the few practices in the Los Angeles area to offer the DualSculpting option!

Additionally, the FDA has recently approved the use of CoolSculpting on the arms, allowing patients to finally remove stubborn arm flab! Contact Ava MD today to learn more about this exciting procedure.

Body Contouring with Z-Wave

 Standard CoolSculpting procedure is for a massage to be done to the area treated immediately following a session. Typically, this is a manual massage done by an aesthetician in order to evenly spread the fat cells for a smooth and regular result. Dr. Ava Shamban and Dr. Soheil Simzar in Santa Monica take this one step further with the addition of the Z-Wave treatment. Z-Wave is a device which uses radial pulse technology to deliver a more efficient and effective massage than a human ever could. CoolSculpting results have been shown to almost double when the Z-Wave is used in place of human massage! A Z-Wave massage is quick and painless, and has been proven to enhance CoolSculpting results.

 CoolSculpting is a great option for men and women who want to reduce their unwanted fat bulges but don’t want to undergo liposuction with its resulting downtime. Following a CoolSculpting procedure, patients are free to immediately return to their daily activities! It is important to remember, though, that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a contouring procedure aimed at the reduction of small, unwanted fat deposits and sculpting a more aesthetically pleasing body.
