Body Contouring


Bella Skin Institute now offers the cutting-edge technology that involves no cutting. No incision, no down-time procedure that reduces unwanted fatty deposits. Great for reducing unwanted bulges in the upper and lower abdomen, love handles, back, inner and outer thighs.

The CoolSculpting system utilizes a patented method called Cryolipolysis (the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat) that is designed to only kill fat cells. Cryolipolysis is the latest in a series of innovations that originated at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate for Harvard Medical School.

Within several days the destroyed fat cells begin to shrink, and are then digested by and removed from the body through metabolic processes. Usually within two to four months, patients see a reduction in the area of fat targeted and an improvement in body contour.

CoolSculpting Procedure

The CoolSculpting procedure involves the use of an applicator that cools the fat cells in the targeted area of your body for a simple, natural fat removal process. An applicator cup is then attached to deliver a gentle vacuum pressure that draws tissue between the cooling panels

The treated fat cells are removed though natural metabolic processes within the body, similar to the way fat from food is removed. This allows for a gradual reduction in fat from targeted areas to create a slimmer, more defined appearance. The CoolSculpting procedure usually takes two or more hours to perform, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Results of CoolSculpting

The results of the CoolSculpting procedure are usually visible two to four months after treatment, and will continue to improve for up to six months. Although these results are not as rapid as those achieved through liposuction, patients undergoing CoolSculpting can avoid the pain, risks and lengthy recovery times associated with these more invasive procedures.

Most patients who undergo CoolSculpting are highly satisfied with the results of their procedure and are able to enjoy a natural, slimmer appearance. While no long-term studies are currently available, the results of CoolSculpting are expected to last about as long as fat reduction achieved through traditional liposuction procedures.

CoolSculpting is non-surgical. No needles, incisions, pain relievers, or recovery time are needed. Risky side effects are not a problem. The procedure is performed in Dr. Guanche's office, and when it is finished the patient can resume his or her normal life without missing a beat.
