Coolsculpting & Tummy Tuck by Dr.Casas

NEW: Sculpt Arms, Bra fat and Flanks with CoolSculpting!

CoolSculpting in Glenview, Nonsurgical Fat Reduction without downtime

Say Good-Bye to your unwanted Arm and Bra Fat-
No Surgery, No Downtime, No Scars!

In March, 2017, Zeltiq, the developer of Coolsculpting, introduced the CoolAdvantage Petite™ applicator. This is the ONLY upper arm non-invasive fat reduction technology that has been FDA approved.7

Casas Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is excited to add the CoolAdvantage Petite™ Coolsculpting applicator to the practice. This applicator is smaller and perfect for the troublesome upper arm, bra and banana roll areas. “With more than 70 peer-reviewed clinical papers and abstracts and over 4 million treatments performed to date in over 80 countries around the world, CoolSculpting is clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-invasive fat reduction.”7

Coolsculpting uses cryolipolysis which is cold-induced apoptotic fat cell death.1 The Coolsculpting applicators are placed on the fat which are cooled to a critical temperature that causes cell death and destruction of the fat cells over a few months.4

If you have stubborn fat on your upper arms, back and bra area and are frustrated by this fat that does not seem to budge no matter how many tricep dips or arm exercises you do each day, Dr. Casas recommends you come in for a consultation.

The addition of this Petite applicator revolutionizes the way we do coolsculpting as we can now treat the upper arm area, smaller framed patients, patients who have shorter inner thigh fat pockets and patients who have smaller areas of pincheable fat. Coolsculpting can now also freeze fat bludges and bra fat in the back and the banana roll (posterior thighs under buttocks). The addition of the Petite applicator to the practice creates more versatility in the areas that can be treated.

Coolsculpting is an easy in-office procedure with no downtime. Side effects are minimal but may include: redness to the treated area, swelling, bruising and temporary numbness which all subside within 1-3 weeks.6 There is no damage to the overlying skin or significant change in lipid levels with prolonged exposure to cooling and fat reduction.5 Patients that have coolsculpting experience great results with a high satisfaction rate.3 A study published by Bernstien, EF showed lasting results at both 6 and 9 year follow ups.2

Here at Casas Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we also recommend using Alastin TransFORM Body Treatment twice daily after your CoolSculpting procedure. This new technology helps accelerate the body’s natural removal process of post procedure fat debris along with tightening and improving the quality of the skin. You use Alastin TransFORM Body Treatment by applying the product in the area of treatment in the morning and evening.

Dr. Casas and her team launched CoolAdvantage Petite™ at her Glenview location in July 2017. She is now offering this latest fat reduction and sculpting technology that is a nonsurgical alternative to Liposuction for her Wilmette, Northbrook, Winnetka, Lake Forest, Highland Park, Glenview and Chicago patients.

There are many benefits to the newer CoolSmooth Pro for Outer Thigh (Saddle Bag) Fat Reduction and Sculpting:

  • Treatment times are 75 minutes versus 90 minutes’. Patients can return to work, exercise and other daily activities faster.
  • Improved Attachment System – This allows patients to relax during the treatment
  • The newer CoolSmooth Pro drops the cooling temperature to -13 degrees Celsius. This advancement allows the CoolSculpting treatment to achieve the same noticeable outcomes in less time.

Coolsculpting and the science behind it, was discovered by, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, Harvard University Scientists. They noticed that children who ate a lot of popsicles had divots, dimpling and loss of fat volume in their cheeks. The phenomenon was named popsicle panniculitis. This observation led to the development of Coolsculpting!

Coolsculpting works by cryolipolysis, which is the non-invasive cooling of fat cells to induce cell death with out damage to other tissues or structures. Fat cells die in the first two to three days after treatment and results can be seen as early as three weeks after the Coolsculpting treatment.

The results are seen in one to three months. Coolsculpting is noninvasive and does not affect your surrounding tissue, which allows our patients to return to their normal daily activities without the recovery time required for liposuctions or surgery.

Dr. Casas can also treat other stubborn areas of fat like the abdomen, flanks, love handles, arms and INNER thighs. Coolsculpting is the perfect solution for the frustrating areas of fat that don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise.

Casas Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is excited about the Coolsmooth Pro because it allows faster, more effective and more comfortable fat reduction treatment of the saddle bag area.

In December 2016, Zeltiq introduced Coolsculpting CooLAdvantage – the newest member of the Coolsculpting family of products designed to reduce unwanted fat cells.

The CoolSculpting procedure works by cooling targeted fat cells to induce a natural reduction of visible fat bulges without affecting surrounding tissue. After treatment, those treated fat cells are reduced.

The CoolAdvantage applicator delivers the revolutionary and proprietary CoolSculpting® cooling technology at an even lower temperature while reducing treatment time in half. In addition, the CoolAdvantage System comes with interchangeable contours, creating three distinct applicators to address multiple treatment areas on the patient. This permits the most advanced, strategic and patient-unique action against stubborn bulges. Due to this enhancement, larger surface areas can be treated, thereby lessening the risk of bruising and improving the technology’s potential.

The shape of the applicator cup was also modified. It allows for increased direct tissue contact. Coupled with the reduction in temperature (1 degree Celsius lower), the CoolAdvantage applicator delivers safe and efficacious results in just 35 minutes vs. 1 hour. Studies showed it to be equally effective as its predecessor.

A salient characteristic of the latest-generation applicator is the increased comfort level. The new applicator shape resulted in a 45 percent increase in comfort during treatment – already considered tolerable and painless by most patients.

Coolsculpting selectively reduces unwanted fat using a patented cooling technology. The fat-blasting procedure is cleared by the FDA and gaining in popularity. More than 3,500,000 treatments have been performed and it is the #1 Non-Surgical- Fat Reduction treatment in the world! Currently there are nearly 4,000 CoolSculpting systems in over 70 countries with market research reporting 95% patient satisfaction with the procedure!

This is the perfect time to sculpt your shape!
