The shape of things to come
About Face Medical Aesthetics offers non-surgical options to help contour the face and body by eliminating fat cells in a safe, relaxing environment. Coolsculpting and its new generation of innovation CoolAdvantage, a proven winner in fat cell elimination, is able to target areas in a shorter time with greater comfort. CoolAdvantage can be used in most areas of the body including the submental region (or under the chin), abdomen, flanks, back, thighs and knees.
An innovative injectable fat cell elimination option is also available with Kybella, the only product of its kind available on the market today. Used for smaller areas, Kybella dissolves fat cells safely through a series of mapped injections, and over time your body sheds the cells naturally.
Coolsculpting was developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. This technology focuses on non-invasive fat reduction rather than weight loss. Contrary to popular belief, fat cells are not eliminated during traditional weight loss programs – they simply become smaller. CoolSculpting will freeze fat cells in treated areas, which are then eliminated by the body over time.
The key to a successful treatment is a specific mapping process for targeting the areas of most concern to you. Having said that and recognizing the importance of this concept, only highly skilled Coolsculpting® Certified medical professionals from our nursing staff will treat you at About Face Medical Aesthetics.
The controlled cooling infusion is delivered by a handheld device, targeting the fat layer being treated. The precise cooling method is called Cryolipolysis which causes fat cell death. The cells are then processed and removed naturally by the body. The skin and remaining tissue both readjust after the treated fat is eliminated, creating a more sculpted you.
We now offer DualSculpting with 2 Coolsculpting CoolAdvantage units. The new generation CoolAdvantage Coolsculpting equipment allows us to cut the treatment time in half for most treatment areas with updated technology. With the addition of a second CoolAdvantage Coolsculpting unit, we can treat 2 areas at the same time, effectively cutting the treatment time in half again.
This is a huge advantage for patients and their treatments. About Face Medical Aesthetics is the only DualSculpting center in the NH Seacoast area, offering patients expertise, along with a pleasant, comfortable, and time efficient way to eliminate fat.
CoolSculpting® for the Chin/Submental Fullness
Coolsculpting® for submental fullness in the lower face, also known as a “double chin” is one of the most sought-after procedures and often the perfect solution. This area commonly causes self-consciousness for men and women but can be difficult to target with diet and exercise alone and can be hereditary. Rather than choosing an invasive procedure (such as traditional liposuction) to remove excess fat from underneath your chin, consider freezing the fat away. The result: tightened contours of your chin and jawline, with no downtime.
As a result of aging, weight gain or heredity, men and women can develop an accumulation of fat in the lower face, or “double chin”. Many of us also experience small localized pockets of stubborn fat in other areas of the body as well. These areas can be difficult to target with diet and exercise, and although there are surgical procedures available to correct them, the extensive healing and downtime involved are not always ideal. Kybella™ involves a series of injections with a substance identical to one that your body makes called deoxycholic acid that results in the gradual, permanent elimination of fat cells. At About Face Medical Aesthetics, we offer Kybella™ to create and contour a tighter, more youthful facial profile and eradicate stubborn fat in areas such as the knees, ankles, bra and back fat – all without surgery. Your provider will discuss the available options to give you optimal results.
