Chemical peels can improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it eventually peel off. The type of chemical will determine how deep the peel goes. As the treated area heals, the skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled. Chemical peels can treat fine lines, dry skin, and acne as well as mild skin pigmentation issues.
CoolSculpting® employs a process known as Cryolipolysis. (“Cryo” = cold + “lipo” = fat cells + “lysis” = cell death and removal.) During treatment, stubborn fat deposits are subjected to controlled cooling.
The controlled cooling safely penetrates the skin. Subcutaneous fat cells begin to freeze. This ruptures the cell’s membrane. The ruptured fat cells are flagged for apoptosis –cell death and removal.
Over the passage of several weeks, the body’s immune system gathers the demolished fat cells. Frozen fat cells ultimately exit the body as waste. These fat cells cannot return or be replaced.
