We have the CoolAdvantage, the newest applicator that is more comfortable and treats more fat in each 35 minute treatment.
CoolAdvantage applicator is here, with a 35 minute treatment. The CoolAdvantage applicator is only a 35 minute treatment, more comfortable, and more area is treated. The Leffel Center is the only central Oregon facility to offer the CoolAdvantage! Come see us!
The Leffel Center also offers the CoolMini, to treat the fat under the chin. Individuals with significant fat may benefit from a second treatment!
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery. This clinically proven technique is designed to selectively reduce the fat in problem areas that has proven resistant to reduction through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting gently cools targeted cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of these unwanted fat cells.
CoolSculpting is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles and back fat.
Developed in 2005 and backed by strong clinical research, CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis)-the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat. Based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting reduces the temperature of fat cells in the treated area. This is intended to promote fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis, without causing scar tissue or damage to the skin, nerves or surrounding tissues. Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to six months after treatment.
What Happens During The Treatment?
Prior to treatment, you and Dr. Leffel will discuss your goals and determine the precise areas on which to work. When treatment begins, Dr. Leffel will position the CoolSculpting device on the area and it will draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure-enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled efficiently. Depending on the extent of your procedure, the treatment is usually complete in about one hour.
Benefits of CoolSculpting include:
- It involves no needles, surgery or downtime. Since the CoolSculpting procedure is non-invasive, patients can resume daily activities including work and exercise immediately following treatment.
- It’s comfortable. CoolSculpting patients can sit or lie down and relax during the procedure. The procedure is performed in a medical office, under the supervision of a physician specializing in cosmetic procedures.
- It’s convenient. Procedures typically last for about one hour, so treatment can easily be performed at lunchtime or during an opportune time of day. The results are dramatic. Patients can expect an average 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas in as little as three weeks after their procedure.
