Memphis Dermatologist Shows Coolsculpting: Before and After Photos

Dr. Purvisha Patel says CoolSculpting is an effective treatment for fat reduction and body contouring without surgery. The treatments target specific, stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise, intended for those who are at a healthy weight but just cannot seem to work off certain problem areas. Coolsculpting can be used to contour the abdomen, thighs, “love handles” and other areas. Dr. Patel shows how Coolsculpting is done and the results which can be expected in this video from a recent Memphis TV appearance.

The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat. "The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so patients look great," says Dr. Patel. "Once the treated fat cells are crystallized  they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good."

CoolSculpting uses cold therapy to freeze and destroy fat cells permanently, with no surgery required. The device cools just the targeted layer of fat without affecting the skin. Since fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells, the fat cells are destroyed without damage to surrounding tissue.

Dr. Patel will also share an an animation of the treatment and actual patient's before & after photos.

Ultrasound has allowed millions of parents to view their babies during pregnancy and now ultrasound energy is being used to help men and women look younger. Instead of looking into the body, the type of ultrasound used in Ultherapy is tightens and rejuvenates facial skin for what amounts to a non-surgical facelift.

Ultherapy is a focused ultrasound treatment that stimulates the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. “This is the only non-surgical procedure that has gained FDA approval to lift the skin on the neck, chin and brow," says Dr. Patel. "Just one treatment is required in most cases and the skin gradually tightens," she says. Ultherapy works by sending targeted pulses of ultrasound energy into the skin.
