)-- Davis Plastic Surgery (http://www.drgmdavis.com/) is adding the Coolsmooth Handpiece for its CoolSculpting® treatments. This Handpiece allows the practice to slim and tone previously untreatable areas where non-surgical fat removal is desired.
"CoolSculpting® is becoming increasingly popular as the word gets out about how effective it is," says Dr. Glenn M. Davis, a board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of the practice. "This treatment permanently reduces fat deposits without surgery. That means no downtime and minimal discomfort. With the new handpiece, we'll be able to treat even more areas of unwanted fat without surgery."
Typically, CoolSculpting® involves placing a suction device on the treatment area. The device needs to be able to "grab on" to a certain amount of tissue so that the treatment can work. Taut tissue in the treatment area could not be treated using the suction device. However, the Coolsmooth Handpiece now allows for successful treatment of these firmer areas. It does not rely on suction and can conform to any body type without the need to gather tissue between two cooling plates. Instead, the Handpiece's cooling plate can be placed directly on the areas of the unwanted fat.
"The Coolsmooth Handpiece expands our options for treating excess fat," adds Dr. Jeremy Pyle, another board-certified plastic surgeon at Davis Plastic Surgery. "We can now treat very targeted or hard-to-reach areas that previously could not be drawn into the suction device. The Handpiece is also effective for larger areas of fat that were too taut or firm for the suction device to grab."
CoolSculpting® works by cooling fat cells to the point that they will gradually die off. Reduction in fat cells occurs over a 2 to 3 month period, with typically around 25% of the cells within the treatment area being eliminated. Patients can enjoy their slimmer contours for years with a proper diet and regular exercise.
A CoolSculpting® Certified practice, Davis Plastic Surgery performs CoolSculpting® treatments for areas including the inner and outer thighs, hips, flanks (love handles), abdomen, arms, and back. With two CoolSculpting® machines that can be used simultaneously, the doctors at the practice are able to offer the DualSculpting method for a faster treatment and twice the amount of fat reduction in one hour.
