The Total Aesthetics“Sculpt and Tone” Difference

How is coolsculpting at Total Aesthetic different from other coolsculpting providers?

  • We’ve pioneered the new paradigm for non-invasive body contouring – “Sculpt and Tone” where it’s no longer just about removing fat. We’ve paired Allergan’s new CoolTone technology with CoolSculpting to enhance your result by firming and defining the underlying musculature.
  • Based on our years of experience and number of patients treated, we have been distinguished as a Preferred Crystal CoolSculpting facility by Allergan, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting. We are one of the leading CoolSculpting providers in the Northeast.
  • Body contouring is about shape, and plastic surgeons are the physicians who are most experienced and qualified in this area. Dr. O’Connell has over 35 years of hands-on experience in body contouring. That’s why he is personally involved in the evaluation and treatment of each and every CoolSculpting patient. At Total Aesthetics, there are no sales personnel or “technicians.”
  • We offer CoolSculpting Plus with the Zimmer Z-Wave machine at no additional charge.
  • We offer the latest, advanced CoolSculpting applicators including CoolMini, the new CoolPetite and the CoolAdvantage™ applicators for the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs and other areas that cut treatment time nearly in half with improved results and greater patient comfort.
  • We’re pleased to offer CoolSculpting patients the TransFORM Body Treatment from Alastin Skincare. This unique formulation has been shown to accelerate the results of body fat reduction procedures like CoolSculpting and also to enhance body skin tightening procedures.

What is CoolSculpting?

Some people work hard to get the body they want.

Sometimes, no matter how diligently we adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine, some stubborn areas of fat remain. Many people consider procedures such as liposuction to eliminate those problem areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, but surgery often involves incisions, anesthesia, and a bit of a recovery period.

Now, there’s a well-established solution to fat reduction that’s completely non-invasive with no downtime, surgery, or need for anesthesia. CoolSculpting is the FDA-approved treatment that is literally the “coolest” way to remove troublesome bulges from the abdomen, flanks, muffin top, love handles, back, thighs, arms, and chin. Using cryolipolysis technology, CoolSculpting can freeze the fat cells and naturally eliminate them from the body without damaging nearby vital tissues—all in less time than one visit to the gym.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedure in the U.S. and it’s for both men and women. Although CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction procedure, it’s best if patients are at or near their ideal body weight. CoolSculpting should not be considered a weight-loss solution but rather a technique to remove those troublesome bulges caused by fatty deposits. Patients should be in good general health and willing to maintain their results with a healthy lifestyle.

Who Can Benefit From CoolSculpting

Who Can Benefit From CoolSculpting

THOSE WITH UNWANTED FAT

CoolSculpting is the most popular non-invasive body contouring procedure in the U.S. and a great solution for problem areas of stubborn, excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Patients with troublesome fat in the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, inner knees, under-chin, and arms can benefit from CoolSculpting.

HEALTHY INDIVIDUALS

CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction procedure best suited for patients at or near their ideal body weight. It should not be considered a weight-loss solution but rather a technique to remove troublesome bulges caused by fatty deposits. Patients should be willing to maintain their results with a healthy lifestyle.

What Do You Desire?

ELIMINATION OF STUBBORN FAT

Unlike procedures that use lasers, sound waves, or surgery, CoolSculpting uses patented technology to gently cool areas of stubborn fat. This sets in motion a process called apoptosis that safely removes fat from the body. The overall process is known as cryolipolysis. Once the fat cells are treated, they are permanently eliminated—all without lasers, knives, suction, needles, or scars. And there is no need for any anesthesia! With CoolSculpting, it’s apoptosis, not necrosis!

SMOOTHER BODY CONTOURS

One significant advantage of CoolSculpting is that, in addition to contouring those troublesome fat deposits, skin tightening has also been shown to occur. With CoolSculpting, you can reduce your fat and smooth your silhouette.

REDUCTION IN CELLULITE

Total Aesthetics is pleased to offer CoolSculpting Plus, which combines CoolSculpting with the Zimmer Z-Wave device to increase the effectiveness of CoolSculpting. Through the use of high-energy radial pulse therapy (RPT), the Zimmer Z-Wave can also improve the appearance of cellulite.

CONFIDENCE

Many patients steer away from wearing certain form fitting or revealing clothing due to stubborn bulges in some areas of the body. CoolSculpting allows you to achieve a firmer, slimmer body that you can show off with confidence.

How Long Does A Coolsculpting Treatment Take?

CoolSculpting usually takes 35 minutes. Because of this, you may want to bring a good book, your cell phone, or your laptop. At Total Aesthetics, complimentary wi-fi is offered.

Are There Any Complications Associated With Coolsculpting?

CoolSculpting has an extremely low risk of complications; some temporary side effects can occur, such as swelling, bruising, or transient neuralgia (sensory change).

How Long Does It Take Until I Can See My Coolsculpting Results?

Typically, most patients see a noticeable reduction in fat and improvement of body contour within three weeks. Full results will take about three months, as the body’s metabolism needs time to eliminate the fat cells from the body.

Are My Results Permanent After Coolsculpting?

Once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot grow back; however, weight gain can prompt the remaining fat cells to enlarge or cause you to gain weight elsewhere.

How Do I Prepare For My Coolsculpting Treatment

There is no preparation needed for CoolSculpting. If possible, patients should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and certain vitamins and supplements.

Considerations
When undergoing coolsculpting procedure

Recovery

There is minimal downtime with CoolSculpting. Patients can drive themselves home immediately following the procedure and resume normal activities that same day. They can even exercise the next day, although there may be some swelling and soreness in the treated areas.

Discomfort

CoolSculpting treatments are quite comfortable. Depending on which applicator is used, patients can feel a slight suction sensation followed by a gentle numbness with the cooling process. After treatment, some patients may feel a slight tingling in the area for a few minutes.

Cost

Dr. O’Connell will discuss the cost of your procedure during a consultation. At Total Aesthetics, there is no added charge for CoolSculpting Plus with the Zimmer Z-Wave.

Scars

CoolSculpting does not require any needles, scalpels, or anesthesia; therefore, patients will not have any scarring.
