Laser tattoo removal can be done anywhere on the body. At Dermatology Experts, we use a specialized Q-Switched Yag/KTP laser that can target and break up tattoo ink of all colors easily. Ink pigments are destroyed under the laser while the surrounding skin cells are left untouched.
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.
