For many couples, Valentine’s Day brings visions of candle-light dinners filled with culinary delights, red roses, chocolatey desserts, loving gifts, and romance. But for newlyweds Paul and Erin Graham, they wanted to skip the traditional gestures this year and treat one another to something unique. As part of their dedication to a healthier lifestyle, they chose to undergo CoolSculpting® treatments at Apex Dermatology and Skin Surgery Center.
“After our wedding, we settled into a less-than-healthy daily routine — not hitting the gym and eating out too much,” said Apex Dermatology Aesthetics Manager Erin Graham. “We changed everything in the new year and started holding one another accountable for making better choices for us and our future.”
Erin and Paul revamped their eating habits by cooking healthy foods at home and returning to regular workouts. To jump-start their journey, they took an additional motivating step by scheduling CoolSculpting treatments to reduce fat in the more resistant body areas as early Valentine’s Day presents.
“Both Paul and I have enjoyed the extra encouragement we got from the fat loss procedure. The boost in confidence encourages us to keep making the best choices for our bodies and general well-being,” Erin shared.
Know the Facts About CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that permanently destroys fat cells in targeted areas with intense cold pressure. CoolSculpting Elite differs from the original system with better suction, dual applicators for larger treatment areas, and quicker results. Both treatments eliminate unwanted fat cells with a 20 to 25 percent reduction in the focus area.
The most treated body parts include:
- Under the chin
- Below the jawline
- Sides (flank)
- Bra-line fat (back)
- Upper arms
- Underneath buttocks (back of thighs)
During treatment, patients will experience a cold, vacuum sensation with only slight discomfort, but no pain. The applicator pulls the area in to be treated with suction and then deeply cools it. After five minutes, the area goes numb, and the patient feels nothing during the procedure lasting about 35 minutes. A post-massage follows to enhance the results. The body then eliminates the destroyed fat cells naturally.
Graham recommends two treatments for targeted areas for the best results, but she cautions that CoolSculpting alone is not the answer to changing your body. She says that the procedure combined with healthy eating, exercise, and other lifestyle changes brings maximum results.
“CoolSculpting works with your healthy habits. I know this as a patient myself. It was important for me to experience the treatments so I can share the best information with clients,” Graham said. “Patients can ask me any questions about CoolSculpting, and I can now share my personal experience with them.”
