Body Contouring Q & A

Who is a candidate for body-contouring therapy?

Men and women who have stubborn pockets of fat or cellulite in areas such as the belly, love handles, back, and thighs can benefit from a little assistance in contouring their physique.

These areas often don’t respond well to diet and exercise. Spot training at the gym isn’t effective and you may see your weight drop on the scale, but you won’t see these areas markedly shrink. With CoolSculpting and Profound, you can target specific problem areas to achieve real results.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting uses freezing technology to destroy stubborn fat cells in target areas without damaging the outer layer of skin. Your body then disposes of these destroyed cells through its natural waste-removal system. The cells are destroyed permanently, so they cannot return.

The treatment is non-invasive and pain-free with minimal side effects. You can go right back to your daily activities following a CoolSculpting treatment. It’s also an effective nonsurgical alternative to invasive liposuction.

What is Profound?

Profound is a revolutionary treatment based on radiofrequency energy. It targets sagging skin to create more elastin, hyaluronic acid, and collagen strength-building compounds so you look younger and more toned. It’s particularly effective on cellulite.

Dr. Yokana can control the temperature and depth of treatment to get you the results you desire. The wand is equipped with a series of microneedles to help deliver the energy below skin to subcutaneous fat.

How many body-contouring treatments will I need?

Dr. Yokana creates a treatment plan customized to your body and specific aesthetic goals. You should see results after one treatment, but may schedule additional sessions to achieve the physique you desire.

Are body-contouring treatments painful?

Both CoolSculpting and Profound are well tolerated by most patients. You may feel some intense cooling and pressure during the initial minutes of CoolSculpting therapy, or heat during Profound, but these sensations subside quickly.

These body-contouring treatments require no incisions, sutures, or blood loss compared to surgical interventions for body contouring.
