CoolSculpting is a noninvasive, nonsurgical medical procedure that helps to remove extra fat cells from beneath the skin. As a noninvasive treatment, it has several benefits over traditional surgical fat removal procedures. CoolSculpting uses a procedure known as cryolipolysis. It works by placing a roll of fat into two panels that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. Some people who do CoolSculpting opt to treat several parts of the body, usually thighs, lower back, belly, and sides. It can also reduce the appearance of cellulite on the legs, buttocks, and arms. Some people also use it to reduce excess fat underneath the chin. It takes an hour to treat each targeted body part. While treating more body parts requires more CoolSculpting treatments to see results. Larger body parts may also require more treatments than smaller body parts.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that treats varicose veins and spider veins. It involves injecting sclerosing agents into damaged veins. In addition to diminishing the appearance of varicose or spider veins, sclerotherapy can also reduce pain or side effects caused by damaged veins.
