  • What may I experience after Coolsculping?
    After your CoolSculpting®️ treatment, it's possible to experience mild redness, bruising, swelling, or numbness in the treated area. Fortunately, these symptoms typically subside within one to two weeks.
  • How does CoolSculpting work?
    The applicator(s) will cool your unwanted fat cells to a temperature of approximately -9 to-11C for a specific period of time (35 to 75 minutes). This process causes the fat cells to die without causing damage to other cells in your body, such as nerve, skin or muscle cells. After the procedure, a quick 2-minute frozen fat massage will damage the crystallized fat cells, preventing your body from repairing them. Over the course of 2-5 days, these damaged fat cells will perish, and it will take 2-4 months for your body to flush the dead cells out. The outcome of this treatment is a more sculpted body resulting in lasting and beautiful results.

  • What are the benefits of Laser Vein treatment?
    Laser Vein treatment is safer and less expensive then vein injections and is also non-invasive, and uses no needles. Understanding How Damaged Veins and Capillaries Cause Spider, Reticular, and Varicose Veins In healthy veins and capillaries there are valves that ensure that blood flows in one direction only. However, when these valves become weak and defective due to damage, blood can flow backward and pool inside the vessel. This increases pressure and weakens the vessel wall, which compensates for the additional volume by expanding. The end result is a twisted, bulging vein. The size of the blood vessel and extent of swelling is what determines if the vein is a spider, reticular or a varicose vein. The Advantages of Laser Spider Vein Treatment Over Sclerotherapy Laser treatments for spider veins have quickly gained popularity due to their non-invasive nature and numerous benefits. Compared to sclerotherapy, laser treatment is not only more cost-effective but also offers a faster recovery time. With sclerotherapy, multiple treatments may be necessary, and each vein requires injections with a needle. In contrast, laser treatment typically only requires 1-2 sessions and needle injections are not necessary.
