Did You Know…
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.
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.
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.
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.
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 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.
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 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.”

Can You CoolSculpt My Butt?

Butt of Course!

When you discover just how many areas of your body can be treated with CoolSculpting to get rid of stubborn fat, it might be a bit difficult to decide where to begin. However, one of the most popular and effective areas to have treated is (along with the stomach, of course) – drumroll… the butt!

Or, more precisely, the buttock area.

Have you heard of a “banana roll?” No, it isn’t a dessert (at least in this case). It’s the nickname for pockets of fat under your derrière. It also happens to be one of the number one areas people want CoolSculpting performed since the results are so significant.

Banana rolls are called this because they make a banana shape underneath the butt (upper back thighs). Many people have them. With CoolSculpting treatments, the fat cells in those banana rolls can be banished forever in about two hours. (That’s one hour for each side.)

If you’re wondering if CoolSculpting is the right treatment to try, note that the best candidates are individuals who are in fairly good shape, but who are having trouble getting rid of fat in certain areas.

Take the “pinch test.” If you can pinch all of the fat you’re trying to lose, CoolSculpting will most likely be ideal for you. If the fat you’d like to get rid of is kind of firm, it might be too difficult to “vacuum” into the CoolSculpting equipment, and you may not get the result you want. The area of fat that you’d like to have treated should be soft and malleable enough to be pulled up into the CoolSculpting applicator and make the right amount of contact with the panels that freeze the fat cells.

So basically, if your bum is squishy enough, it can be treated! Just remember that it needs to be fat that can be pinched, and not muscle. And as mentioned before, the derrière area is one of the most asked-about parts of the body to treat. Once the fat cells have been frozen away, they die and never come back. As long as you maintain healthy eating habits and a basic amount of exercise, your newly-sculpted butt (or any other treated area) stays sculpted.

CoolSculpting is FDA-approved, safe, fast, very effective, and requires no downtime. At Fremont Laser, we’re a leader in CoolSculpting treatments in the Bay area.
