Treating Skin Pigmentation With BBL

Our skin is a big deal. It is your body’s largest and fastest-growing organ. If the body produces too much or too little melanin, it can cause brown spots, sun spots, moles, melasma or other skin patches that appear lighter or darker than normal.

How Many CoolSculpting® Treatments Will I Need?

When thinking about seeking out CoolSculpting, a patient will often wonder how many times they’ll need treatment to achieve the results they desire. The truth is, it depends on every individual body. Other factors include your expectations, commitment to the treatment and your attitude towards healthy living.

CoolSculpting can reduce certain areas that are difficult to lose through healthy diet and exercise, however, we encourage all of our clients to maintain a healthy lifestyle before, during and after treatment.

In general, patients to receive 1-3 CoolSculpting treatment sessions in each area treated. The amount of treatments needed depends on the results you want and the number of areas being treated.

One Coolsculpting Treatment May Be All You Need

CoolSculpting can naturally diminish between 20-25% of the fat cells in the areas it covers. It will not help you lose weight, however, it can improve the shape of your body, making it appear as though you’ve dropped pounds. This is because a 20-25% reduction can make a huge impact on the appearance of stubborn bulges. It can provide a visible difference for all body types. However, it is not as effective for larger pockets of fat.

CoolSculpting is most effective when a patient is close or nearing their ideal, healthy weight. Typically, a patient should only have about 20-30 extra pounds to lose. Patients at the ideal weight for this procedure may only need to undergo one round of CoolSculpting to achieve their goal appearance.

Multiple Treatments For Stubborn Fat

If you have a small amount of stubborn fat, one round of CoolSculpting can be effective. If you desire to slim a larger area, or you have slightly more fat on your body, you may need multiple treatments. Normally patients reach their ideal results after 2 rounds of CoolSculpting procedures.

After 2-3 procedures, a patient can dramatically improve their physical appearance. In theory, there is no limit to how many procedures a patient can undergo. The procedure is safe and promotes a natural bodily response to fat destruction.

Each treatment will be performed several months apart, to give the body enough time to react naturally, and dispose of the fat cells organically. Typically it is best to wait a minimum of 30 days before starting a new session of CoolSculpting, with 4 months being ideal. It is best to ensure you’re healthy before every treatment session and if you’ve had previous treatments, wait before you treat the area again to ensure all possible side effects have diminished.

A patient can, however, have multiple areas of CoolSculpting done at the same time, in one session. It is only suggested they wait when wanting to re-treat an area.

Treatments Are As Unique As Your Body

There is no certain way to determine exactly how many treatments you will need to undergo. Generally, if you are within 20-30 pounds of your ideal weight, and have specific problem areas, you shouldn’t need more than 1-2 treatments.

Patients are usually able to fully transform their bodies after 3 treatments, but it is important to maintain realistic expectations. Wait the entire 4 months after your procedure before seeking out a second or third treatment.

CoolSculpting relies on your own bodies ability to rid the body of fat cells. Therefore it can take time to see results.

So it is important not to get frustrated by waiting and be patient. If it has been 4 months after your procedure and you still do not see the results that you want, you can consider going for a second treatment.

CoolSculpting should never be used as a means of weight loss, and seeking out multiple treatments for the sake of losing weight is not a good idea. It is important to be within the ideal weight for CoolSculpting for the treatments to be most effective.

How To Revive Dull Winter Skin

The cold, the wind, the dryness. Winter weather can be aggressive and damaging to your skin over time. By changing your skin care routine to suit the season however, you can revive dull winter skin.

Revive Winter Skin Tip #1: Moisturize

Combat dry and flaking skin with a heavy moisturizing routine. The dry, winter air can zap moisture in the skin, so using a heavier cream this season will amp up your protection against the elements. Get in the habit of moisturizing as soon as you get out of the shower or cleanse your face to seal moisture in.

Revive Winter Skin Tip #2: Exfoliate

Revive skin with one of our professional, Skin Renewal Exfoliating Treatments, then keep up the routine at home with regular exfoliation to slough away dead skin. This helps dehydrated and dry skin by allowing your moisturizer to penetrate the dermis with ease and deliver its benefits. Pat skin dry rather than rubbing to avoid further skin irritation. Added bonus: exfoliate lips with a simple sugar scrub or your toothbrush to keep them looking smooth.

Revive Winter Skin Tip #3: Protect

Love to ski, board and skate? Even mid-winter’s rays can be harmful to your skin. Use a daily SPF on top of your moisturizer for double the protection against the sun’s rays. Their reflection off ice and snow can be just as damaging long term, while a layer of moisturizer protects the harsh, cold air.

Revive Winter Skin Tip #4: h40

Inside and out! Replenish moisture in your skin by drinking plenty of water every day. Running a humidifier also helps balance out the warm, dry air pumping from the heater during colder months.

Revive Winter Skin Tip #5: Regular Maintenance & Professional Care

Use a mild cleanser in winter to prevent stripping your skin of its natural oils which contributes to dryness; and use it regularly! Getting into a good skincare routine will improve skin health over the long term for lasting results.
