How CoolSculpting and Venus Legacy Work Together

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Nov 17, 2016 3:06:12 PM

sona-medspa-0172-1.jpg

Body Contouring is a very exciting category for Sona MedSpa right now. With its non-invasive nature, the ability to help people with problem areas of fat, cellulite, and skin laxity, it's really exciting for us to offer our clients both CoolSculpting for fat reduction and Venus Legacy for skin tightening. Even though these services target two different concerns, when utilized together, they provide optimal results for a better looking you.  

 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting's unique technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin.  Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. With over 2 million treatments performed worldwide, it is safe and effective for removing fat on the abdomen, love handles, flanks, thighs (inner and outer) and now even a double chin.  Once the fat is gone, it's gone for good!   

 

What is Venus Legacy?

Venus Legacy™ uses heat to naturally boost collagen production and break down fat cells, which tightens sagging skin, smoothes out cellulite, and makes the body look slimmer and more toned. Venus Legacy™ will also help to reduce fine and lines and wrinkles, leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin.

 

What are the Benefits for Utilizing both CoolSculpting and Venus Legacy?

Both treatment types are non-surgical, non-invasive, and require little to no downtime. Even though CoolSculpting and Venus Legacy use distinctly different methods to reduce fat and tighten skin, they both provide optimal results for a reshaped and tightened body.

Don't take our word for it, here is Lanie's experience with both CoolSculpting and Venus Legacy.

 

sona-medspa-0327.jpg"As a lifelong athlete, I have a love for fitness, but no matter how hard I worked out I still had trouble spots.   I have done CoolSculpting which I am absolutely thrilled with and I have also done the Venus Legacy and I love that as well. CoolSculpting is helping with the trouble spots that I could not seem to loose and then the Venus Legacy comes in right behind it and tightens everything up. Venus Legacy makes everything feel smooth and firm and perfect, the way it should be, the way it was when I was 30. Now thanks to Sona I have the body I have always worked hard for and that I deserve." - LAINE V., Age 42

5 Things You Wanted to Know About CoolSculpting - But Never Asked

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Oct 21, 2016 10:09:56 AM

see a slimmer you with cs.jpg


1. Is CoolSculpting permanent?

Yes. Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. At Sona MedSpa we are committed to ensuring our clients achieve their desired results and that is why we offer The Sona Promise for CoolSculpting.

 

2. What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you may typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.

After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities immediately following their appointment. 

 

3. Why does it take so long to see results?

Once the the fat cells treated die, your body will process those dead cells naturally. You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. Check out Hannah's CoolSculpting Transformation!

 

4. Will CoolSculpting help me lose weight?

No. The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells.

5. I hear you treat the banana area - What exactly is that?

The banana roll is a pocket of fat underneath the butt that is in the shape of a banana. Some people say it makes them look like they have a double butt. Check out the two new areas we can treat with CoolSculpting!

Fat Reduction vs. Weight Loss | CoolSculpting®

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Oct 29, 2015 10:40:00 AM

What's the Difference Between Getting Rid of Fat and Losing Weight?

Many Sona MedSpa clients interested in the CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment have the very common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They are not. While as we all know maintaing a healthy weight is an important part of physical health, it does not always equate to the look you want. That means you could spend months dieting, working out, and staying fit, and still not get rid of those love handles or problem areas around your stomach that you just can't stand. CoolSculpting is designed specifically to help you target stubborn fat in those areas.

When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again.

The CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can't get bigger. And unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they're gone for good. 

After the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated areas actually have fewer fat cells. And unlike what happens when you lose weight, there's no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Oct 15, 2015 1:59:00 PM

CoolSculpting vs Liposuction

CoolSculpting and Liposuction are both proven treatments to But which treatment is right for you?

 

HOW THEY WORK

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, fat-freezing procedure that provides a more comfortable, non-invasive alternative to contouring the body. Liposuction (also known as Lipoplasty) is the surgical removal of excess fat. During a CoolSculpting procedure, a device is positioned on the area being treated and controlled cooling is applied. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead fat cells. Liposuction requires a patient to be under anesthesia and a thin, straw-like instrument called a cannula is inserted through incisions to loosen excess fat. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe.

 

DURING THE PROCEDURES

Depending on the area being treated, a CoolSculpting procedure takes about 45 - 90 minutes to complete. During this time you can read, work on your laptop or tablet, talk on the phone, or even take a nap. You can take advantage of a CoolScuplting procedure by having "you time." Most would agree that Liposuction is not as relaxing. With Liposuction (like most surgical procedures) anesthesia is used and after your 45 - 90 minute liposuction procedure, at least an additional 30 minutes is required of post-anesthesia observation. This means unlike a CoolSculpting procedure that can have you in and out in about an hour, Liposuction requires at least 2 hours at the medical facility. 

 

RECOVERY TIME

After a CoolScuplting procedure, you may experience a little numbness in the treated area, but there is no downtime. This procedure allows you to return to your normal activities right after the procedure and can resume workouts in a day or two. Due to Liposuction being a surgical procedure, downtime is required and normal activities can be resumed within a few weeks after the procedure. Depending on the area being treated, pain will occur 2-4 days after surgery and a compression garment must be worn for a few weeks after Liposuction to allow the skin to tighten as the treated area heals.  

 

RESULTS

In the weeks and months following a CoolSculpting procedure, the body naturally processes the treated fat, gradually tightens the skin, and eliminates the dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good and more noticeable results of fat reduction can be seen around 2-4 months after the procedure, depending on the area treated. Unlike CoolSculpting, Liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat immediately leaving the skin loose, which does not allow the body to naturally tighten like CoolSculpting. Even though CoolSculpting and Liposuction both result in eliminating fat and contouring the body to a more attractive state, both results must be maintained. As long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained, the results will stay.

As the leader in the aesthetics industry, Sona MedSpa is committed to ensuring our clients the best possible results. We want our clients to feel confident that they will see results, which is why we offer the Sona CoolSculpting Promise.  To find out more about our CoolSculpting Promise, contact a Sona expert today to schedule a free consultation. 

 

WHAT IS THE COST?

Both CoolSculpting and Liposuction are not "one size fits all" treatments.  This means treatment plans are truly unique to the individual and their goals. Because everyone does not have the same body type or the same goals, pricing can and will vary from client to client and an in-person consultation is required. The CoolSculpting procedure is very affordable compared to more invasive procedures like liposuction. At Sona MedSpa, we offer a number of financing options that provide low monthly payment plans to fit your budget.

Ask An Expert: CoolSculpting

Posted by Jessie Bumgarner on Aug 25, 2015 9:10:00 AM

 AskAnExpert-CoolSculpting-LizMarshall-2

Q: How does CoolSculpting differ from other fat reduction treatments?

CoolSculpting is a FDA cleared treatment that uses a unique technology that freezes away stubborn fat with no surgery and no downtime.  The treated fat cells are destroyed and gone for good.

Q: Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

A good candidate for CoolSculpting is anyone who is at or near their target weight and looking to reduce areas of fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise.

Q: How does CoolSculpting work?

An applicator is placed over a particular area and will freeze subcutaneous fat. Treatment takes about an hour depending on area treated. Additional treatments may be needed based on your personal goals.

Q: When should you begin to see results?

After your CoolSculpting treatment, you could begin seeing results in as little as 3-4 weeks with full results in 3-4 months depending on the area(s) treated.  Your body will naturally metabolize all of the destroyed fat cells over time.

Q: Why would you recommend CoolSculpting? 

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure and has no downtime! For about an hour or so, you can relax, take a nap, do some work, or play on your iPad while your fat freezes away. 

Q: Have you received CoolSculpting treatments? If so, how do you like your results?

I love CoolSculpting! I have had my flanks treated. My results are amazing! I feel like I have more of that hour glass figure and love the way my clothes fit. I'm excited to have my outer thighs treated next!

Q: What was one of the most rewarding client transformations you’ve seen?

One of our clients had tried diet and exercise for years and never could reduce the fat on her abdomen. After she came in to Sona, we personalized a plan for her. After her first treatment on her abdomen, she saw the results of CoolSculpting with reduced fat and her clothes fit better than ever! I could see the confidence and how happy she was about her results.

Q: What is your favorite part of your job?

I enjoy educating clients on Coolsculpting, and making them feel comfortable during their visit to Sona. The best part is seeing how happy clients are with their results.
