Dermatology associates in the Ashburn area can use CoolSculpting to enhance body shape and contours
Muffin tops, love handles, and bra fat are common phrases used to notate unwanted areas of fat that have developed on the body. Patients in the Ashburn area who are interested in addressing these concerns when diet and exercise fail often book a consultation appointment at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc.
Dr. Neeraja Mattay is a dermatologist who encourages patients to learn about the non-invasive solutions available to treat areas of unwanted fat. One of the popular choices is CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting can be done in our practice as a way of addressing unwanted fat deposits on specific areas of the body. It can be performed on both men and women and it uses a special process known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is an FDA-approved method for reducing fat by essentially freezing the fat cells and allowing them to be absorbed into the body. This is all done to provide about 20 percent fat reduction in the treatment area in a safe, effective manner. It does not affect the skin, just the fat cells, and helps in addressing parts of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, and upper body that may be causing patients to feel self-conscious about their body contours and appearance.
Dr. Neeraja Mattay and the team at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc. use CoolSculpting for patients who have minor changes they want to make to their body contours. It does not require any downtime or recovery time as traditional procedures do, making it more desirable for patients with active, busy lifestyles. Patients are educated on the procedure and are aware that the results achieved with CoolSculpting are not immediate, but rather occur over the course of several weeks. This is because the treatment freezes the fat and it takes time for the body to absorb it. These gradual results are often preferred by patients who are considering having work done on their body, as they want the changes to appear natural.
