Alternative To Liposuction Stockton

Best CoolSculpting professional near you in the Stockton area

Dr. Gerald Bock is one of the best dermatologists “near you” in the Stockton area who can perform quality laser and skin care services for both men and women. When patients come to his practice interested in ways to reduce fat on the body without undergoing liposuction, they are often told about an FDA-cleared device known as the CoolSculpting machine.

CoolSculpting is a wonderful alternative to liposuction for patients who are interested in sculpting the body into a more pleasing shape and enjoy a more attractive appearance without plastic surgery. Liposuction can be invasive, expensive, and risky, leaving many patients feeling as though they have no affordable options available to them outside of traditional diet and exercise. However, no matter how much someone watches their calorie intake and regardless of how many sit-ups they do, certain areas of the body may still retain unwanted fat. Localized treatment is the best way to target these problems.

CoolSculpting works differently from liposuction. Instead of invasive removal of fat cells using cannulas inserted through skin incisions, CoolSculpting uses an applicator that provides cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is the freezing of fat cells in the body, which allows them to be flushed out and provide permanent reduction of fat deposits. Cryolipolysis treatment has been proven to provide long-term results for patients who are within the normal weight range. Patients should understand that this treatment is better for sculpting specific areas instead of for weight loss. Patients can use this treatment on many areas of the body including the back, thighs, arms, legs, love handles, and abdomen.

Dr. Gerald Bock encourages patients to consider CoolSculpting when seeking bodycontouring options that may provide them with the results they truly want. If you live in or around the Stockton area, and want to learn about cryolipolysis and the results you can achieve with treatment, contact the California Skin and Laser Center today. We can discuss the benefits of treatment and determine if patients are appropriate candidates for CoolSculpting services.
