Fat Removal 

Regardless of how much you diet and exercise, there are just some areas on the body that don’t get slimmer, that’s where fat removal comes in. You can be in the best shape of your life, but still have those pockets of fat that just won’t budge. One of the biggest advances in the cosmetic dermatology field has been in non-invasive fat removal procedures. We all know about liposuction, and its ability to permanently remove fat from unwanted areas on the body. But there are major risks, costs and downtimes that go along with liposuction, as it’s major surgery under general anesthesia, something most people want to avoid if it’s an elective procedure. At Schweiger Dermatology, we are pleased to offer the most groundbreaking and effective non-invasive procedures for fat removal. We want to help you achieve your cosmetic goals with as little risk and pain as possible. Here’s a look at the fat removing treatments that will change your figure and get you in swimsuit shape quicker than just diet and exercise ever will.

Coolsculpting by Zeltiq: Non Invasive Fat Removal Technique

What it treats: Those hard to target fat bulges on the body, such as “muffin top” and “love handles.” What it is: Zeltiq is a new non-invasive treatment that effectively reduces fat in areas of the body. The completely no down time fat reduction and permanent fat removal procedure is accomplished by the scientific principle of “Cryolipolysis.” This method makes use of cold to diminish fat cells in the body, thus improving the body’s contour. Zeltiq is a great alternative to liposuction. How it works: Coolscuplting by Zeltiq uses a non-invasive applicator to target and remove fat cells in localized areas on the body. The device is applied to the target area for about an hour and then it starts reducing the temperature to attain the right coldness to selectively target the fat cells in that area. The body responds with an inflammatory reaction that causes the body to dispose of the broken down fat cells. Results are seen after about one month with optimum results seen after three months. There are no scars or downtime with Coolsculpting by Zeltiq.
