Did You Know…
In the 1450s, women would shave their pubic hair to get rid of lice. And then they would have a pubic hair wig made as a replacement.
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
Neurotoxins are medications developed from the bacteria known as clostridium botulinum. Researchers noticed that people infected with this bacterium had suffered muscle weakness. Dysport and Botox have been developed from this discovery.
In the past some doctors tried to dye the patient hair dark so that more of the laser energy would be absorbed by the hair and thereby the laser would more effectively remove the hair. Unfortunately, it did not work because the dye did not reach the hair follicle.
A tan can absorb some of the energy of laser light and prevent the laser light from reaching the hair follicle. Do not get a tan before laser hair removal.
Just before the laser is fired, a jet of frozen air is sent to the skin to protect the skin from the laser energy and to decrease the pain.
The idea behind the CoolSculpt machine started after doctors noticed that children who sucked on popsicles lost the fat in their cheeks without damage to the skin. It is amazing what can develop from a simple observation.
The light from a hair removal laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicle and is destroyed. Since people have different skin colors, we need to have lasers with a variety of colors of laser light.
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.

CoolSculpting™ 

See Dramatic Results Without Taking Drastic Measures

CoolSculpting is everything you’ve read and seen, and then some. This FDA-cleared, non-evasive and safe procedure contours your body by freezing targeted fat cells. Over time, your body naturally processes and eliminates the fat cells, leaving treated areas beautifully contoured and sculpted.

Coolsculpting is perfect for treating areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise like:

  • Your tummy
  • Your flank (love handles)
  • Thighs
  • Chin

CoolSculpting is science that works like magic

The science: Fat cells freeze at a different temperature than other tissues. The CoolSculpting device freezes only fat cells, leaving other areas unaffected. After your session, you’re free to go on with your day as usual. Fat cells crystallize underneath your skin, and your body naturally takes care of the rest by processing and eliminating them.

The magic: Results come naturally and slowly. As your body eliminates treated fat cells for up to three or four months, you’ll notice subtle changes. Multiple sessions may be required to reach the shape you want. Once frozen and eliminated, these fat cells don’t return, leaving you with long-lasting results.
