Body Sculpting Treatment Stockton

Preferred lipo, noninvasive techniques for body sculpting from Specialist in Stockton

When you hear the words “body sculpting,” liposuction may immediately come to mind.
Dr. Gerald Bock was one of the early adopters of what is considered among the safest of cosmetic procedures, tumescent liposuction. While this option has resulted in decreased bleeding, made general anesthesia unnecessary, and has sped up recovery times by minimizing these types of risks and considerations, it’s time to change your conception of fat removal and body sculpting.
Today there are many noninvasive ways to remove fat. Dr. Bock may apply intense cold to “freeze” fat cells. This process takes into account that fat cells respond differently than other cells to outside stimuli, including heat. The “freezing” process is known as “cryolipolysis.”
Cold is delivered precisely and in a controlled, safe fashion to a targeted area via a handheld device. Different applicators are available for different parts of the body. For example, one type of applicator is available for those areas that have “pinchable” fat, such as the inner thighs. The applicator is designed in such a way to securely isolate the target, so cold is distributed evenly and accurately. Another type of applicator is designed to wrap around those areas that can’t be pinched, such as the outer thigh.
One of the (many) great things about CoolSculpting is California Skin & Laser Center can treat more than one trouble area during the same session, be it hips, abdomen, sides, and thighs.
Regardless of where fat is being removed, the cold temperatures go to work in much the same way: Fat cells are frozen. Over time, they are naturally eliminated from the body.
In addition to some of the advantages mentioned above, the non-surgical CoolSculpting also:

  • Boasts minimal unwanted side effects, limited to the treated area and to temporary sensitivity, numbness, discoloration, sensitivity
  • Doesn’t require painkillers or antibiotics during or after treatment
  • Allows you to return to work, normal activities post-treatment, so no downtime!

It’s also an option for those who can’t undergo surgery due to pre-existing medical problems or those who simply don’t want to “go under the knife.”
Additionally, it’s important to note that both more invasive (lipo) and less invasive (CoolSculpting) body shaping techniques are not substitutes for overall weigh loss techniques. If your goals for fat removal are significantly greater, other diet and exercise programs and procedures may best meet your needs.
