SHOULD YOU TRY COOLSCULPTING TO LOSE WEIGHT?

SHOULD YOU TRY COOLSCULPTING TO LOSE WEIGHT?

Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that is a non-surgical method to lose unwanted fat. By freezing the unwanted fat cells, it is safer than liposuction and promotes minimal downtime, which allows you to get right back to your daily activities following treatment.  

Coolsculpting is not a quick fix or permanent solution to achieve weight loss. However, it does help with those stubborn areas on the body where the fat just doesn’t seem to budge no matter how hard you workout or diet.

Coolsculpting destroys up to 20% of fat which is targeted with each treatment, and is well tolerated by patients. There is such a thing as an ideal patient for CoolSculpting; someone who is at a stable weight, or has recently lost the extra weight putting them within their target “zone” and someone who lives a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting is a treatment for those who are stuck with stubborn fat bulges that may be deemed “exercise resistant fat.”  If you are looking for general weight loss, start with a healthy eating and exercise plan that you can adopt as a lifestyle choice.

Losing or gaining weight does not destroy fat cells, but instead, changes the size of the fat cells. When you diet, you shrink your fat cells and when you gain weight, your expand your fat cells. Coolsculpting helps by targeting problematic areas with a method known as Cryolypolisis, this destroys up to 20% of fat cells permanently. This is the only known treatment of it’s kind and has been FDA approved for the permanent removal of unwanted fat.

If you have stubborn fat to lose, CoolSculpting is the right choice for you. This treatment is not a quick fix for weight loss and should not be used to drop extra lbs. If you are looking for a sleeker, slimmer profile and have a few problem areas to discuss, give us a call at 808-528-0888 to book a complimentary consultation.

CoolSculpting treatments will be 10% off through the month of August when booked at your consultation appointment. We hope to see you soon!

THE MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT COOLSCULPTING, ANSWERED.

About Honolulu MedSpa

While there is no magic way to get rid of stubborn fat, people are flocking to this game-changing procedure, CoolSculpting as the next best thing. Known for its whittling ways, both men and women have become a fan of this fat blasting treatment.

With our patients’ needs in mind, we have answered five of the most commonly asked questions of CoolSculpting…

WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?

It is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical, fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. Basically, it freezes your fat for good to contour your body without surgery or downtime.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING?

Your provider at Honolulu MedSpa will do a thorough complimentary consultation and will customize a treatment plan for your body. Every body is different, but if you have noticeable bulges and pockets of unwanted fat which are resistant to diet and exercise, then CoolSculpting is right for you.

DOES IT HURT?

Most patients would say no. The first 5-10 minutes you will feel an intense cold sensation on the area treated, but that will soon subside. At Honolulu MedSpa, we make it as comfortable as we can for you, providing entertainment such as Netflix so you can catch up on your latest show or movie. If you need to have a snack or a drink of water while sculpting this is all OK and will not interfere with the treatment or results.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

During the procedure, you may feel some discomfort such as tugging, pulling, or intense cold sensations. This will subdue once the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. If you are treating the submental region (double chin) sensation of fullness in the back of the throat is common. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after the procedure, and will experience the more dramatic results after two months. Your body will continue to flush fat cells for 4 to 6 months after treatment.

If you feel CoolSculpting isn’t for you, we have other options available. Check out our Venus Freeze Cellulite Treatment and for more information about Venus Freeze Cellulite Reduction, you can also check out our recent blog post about it as well. Mahalo

BEST BUSTERS TO GET RID OF CELLULITE

Venus freeze cellulite reduction

Cellulite has been one beauty-related issue that millions of women suffer from that bothers us the most. Just because you have cellulite, it doesn’t mean that you are overweight. It’s the result of irregular pockets sitting in the subcutaneous fats that connect your muscle and bone rather than fat itself. Cellulite can be found not only on the thighs, but your butt, stomach and arms.

There’s no quick fix for cellulite, but here are some top tips that can lessen the appearance before you hit the beach and that is the Venus Freeze Cellulite Reduction

BOOK A VENUS FREEZE TREATMENT

This non-invasive treatment helps to contour and reduce cellulite in as little as three treatments. Venus Freeze uses multipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulsed energy to produce a dense and uniformed heat matrix to the skin. With no downtime and no pain, this can be used on many body areas to reduce cellulite, contour the silhouette, and increase circulation. Call Honolulu MedSpa for a free consultation today or fill out our appointment request form below.

USE A BODY TIGHTENING CONCENTRATE

Skinceuticals Body Tightening Concentrate helps to tighten, firm and lift the appearance of sagging skin. With 2% of hydrolyzed rice protein, it helps to firm the skin on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, knees and upper arms. You simply apply this concentrate to dry skin twice a day and will notice the skin appears more firm and smooth after only a few days. You can find this concentrate serum at Honolulu MedSpa.

DRY BRUSHING

This is one of the most effective ways to get blood circulating, encourage lymph drainage and smooth the surface of your skin all in one. Dry brushing is a combination of exfoliation and massage that involves taking a dry brush and moving over your body in slow, circular motions.

TONE LEGS WITH SQUATS AND LUNGES

Workouts with high repetitions and lower weight paired with aerobics will help give you leaner, more toned look. Toning builds muscle and strength. Adding Venus Freeze Cellulite Reduction Treatment plus good diet and exercise will make your efforts much more visible.

TAN IT

Tanned skin always makes the skin appear tighter and more toned, so if you need an immediate solution for hiding cellulite quickly, use a self-tanner. Make sure to always exfoliate a few days prior to tanning so that your tan will not only last longer, but will fade evenly.

Inside Honolulu MedSpa: Beauty Talk with Olivia & Kanoe

What’s your take on beauty when you work at Hawaii’s leading medical spa? We chatted with two of Honolulu MedSpa’s top medical aestheticians and laser technicians, Olivia Bears and Kanoe Oda, to find out.

Olivia fell into aesthetics accidentally after happening upon a booth for a beauty and wellness school at a college fair. Kanoe, on the other hand, was always interested in looking good, and knew skin care would be a perfect fit for her. Both ladies do some of the finest laser hair removal, facials and chemical peels you’ll experience anywhere on the island. But what do they follow when it comes to their personal beauty routines? We knew you’d ask. Read on for their answers.

How has living in Hawaii impacted your perspective on beauty and wellness in general?

Olivia: Hawaii is such a melting pot of cultures. Living here has reinforced for me just how different all of our needs and wants are in the sense of beauty. So having an open mind is key.

Kanoe: Living in Hawaii in particular, being in the sun is almost unavoidable and that has definitely made me realize how important it is to protect our skin from the sun.

Can you describe to us your personal skincare routine?

Olivia: I tend to have more temperamental skin, but I’m a product junkie, so it’s a problem. I love trying new things, but sometimes my skin doesn’t respond very nicely, so for the most part I keep it simple. As of right now, in the morning I use SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel and a physical, zinc-based sunscreen. Before bed, I always use my SkinMedica Retinol, usually followed by SM TNS Recovery Complex, and then usually finished with my SC Phyto Corrective Gel.

Kanoe: I think simple is best! After cleansing and toning, prevent, correct and protect.

What skincare products or ingredients are you most excited about these days?

Olivia: I love products that work overtime! Any product that can address multiple concerns or is diverse enough to use on multiple skin types is great in my book.

Kanoe: Antioxidants are amazing! I’m really excited about bringing SkinCeuticals back to the spa. 😉

Who is your beauty icon? Why?

Kanoe: Jessica Alba, she has a natural beauty which I aspire to have. And also with her new skincare line, she knows the importance of good quality ingredients and keeping beauty simple.

If we looked, what would we find in your bag right now?

Olivia: Lip balm, HydroFlask, hand lotion and doTerra Peppermint Beadlets.

Kanoe: Lip tint, eyeliner and powder.

What one treatment could you not live without?

Olivia: Laser hair removal.
Kanoe: Botox. 🙂

If you could speak to her now, what skincare or beauty advice would you give your 20-year-old self?

Olivia: “Stop looking for a ‘cure-all!’ There’s no quick fix for anything in life. Just take care of yourself!”

Kanoe: “Stay out of the sun!”

Give us your best anti-aging tip?

Olivia: Hydrate and start preventative measures young! It’s SO much easier to prevent aging than it is to reverse aging.

Kanoe: Always use sunscreen and take antioxidants.

What’s your personal beauty philosophy?

Olivia: Beauty starts on the inside. Happy people are the most beautiful people. But I also believe that we feel our best when our outside matches how we feel on the inside.

Kanoe: True beauty is a lifestyle and comes from the inside out.

How to Get Rid of Cellulite and Fat: From CoolSculpting to Venus Freeze

fat loss and cellulite removal

Fat Loss. Cellulite Removal. Which Treatment is Right for Me?

Interested in body sculpting? You’re not alone! The idea of being able to (finally) kiss that stubborn bulge goodbye, or get that smooth curve you’re so close to achieving, is undeniably enticing. But where to begin?

If you’re new to body sculpting treatments, or perhaps interested in really amping up the results, keep reading. But first, let’s look at what your body sculpting options are, and how these fat loss and cellulite removal treatments work:

Best for Treatment Overall Fat Loss: CoolSculpting© Plus+

CoolSculpting®, one of the most popular treatments at Honolulu MedSpa, permanently freezes away fat from the belly, thighs, and other large areas of the body through a process called cryolipolysis. While this treatment has quickly become a household name based on its rockstar results, our process and approach—we call it CoolSculpting® Plus+—can provide extremely comprehensive and unparalleled results. Our technique introduces Z-Wave technology to the CoolSculpting® process, which adds a powerful boost to the combustion of fat molecules. There’s no downtime, and you can expect to see up to 25% of fat cells gone from treated areas.

What makes CoolSculpting® Plus+ so popular and effective is the range and breadth of resources we have to treat a variety of areas on the body. There are a variety of device combinations and techniques to freeze your way to a slimmer silhouette. Want double the impact in less time? Come on in for a consultation and we’ll bend your ear on DualSculpting. For smaller areas of concern, like the double chin (or submental fat) and underarms, the CoolMini® does a beautiful job eliminating fat cells. You can expect to see the first results about three weeks after your treatment date.

Best Treatment for Refined Body Sculpting: TightSculpting™

Honolulu MedSpa is the first medical spa to deliver the advanced laser treatment TightSculpting™ to Hawaii! This groundbreaking, versatile body sculpting and skin tightening treatment have been making many patients smile based on some beautiful results. During the procedure, multiple lasers work at the same time to gently treat areas plagued by stubborn, excess fat. The first stage heats fat cells beneath the skin, and the second stage works on the skin’s surface to stimulate new collagen growth. Seeing smoother, lifted skin right away is one of the best parts of a TightSculpting™ session!

Best Treatment for Cellulite Removal: Venus Freeze®

A tried-and-tested choice, especially when it comes to cellulite, the Venus Freeze® device uses multi-polar radio frequency to shrink fat cells and spur existing collagen to contract. This treatment is usually requested for the thighs and derriere and anywhere cellulite regularly rears its ugly head. We suggest patients book at least one session per season, but many patients schedule treatments monthl—they enjoy the results that much.
