Our Time at CoolSculpting University!

CoolSculpting® in Portland, ME

In preparation for the busiest season of the year, Fall, members of our clinical staff went to CoolSculpting University to support our ever-growing CoolSculpting business. Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England was the first practice in Maine to offer the treatment, and since, we have always striven to provide our patients the latest technology and most-advanced techniques.

We are now equipped with all the newest handpieces that treat the hard to reach areas – such as the arms, chin, and thighs. The technology is amazing, but we know that the heart of a practice lies with our providers. We are proud of our team for deepening their CoolSculpting experience by attending the University, and bringing back valuable information that we can apply to all our patients!

We sat down with Audrey, R.N., Christina, L.E., Kristen, M.A., and Carollee, M.A, about their experience at CoolSculpting University. Here’s what they had to say:

  1. What was your favorite part?
    1. Audrey: I thought learning about the science behind the technology was really fascinating. I also liked learning about how they have improved their technology over the years. It is a really important piece of the puzzle that often gets forgotten.
    2. Christina: I loved the hands-on experience. I could visually see and learn everything about handpiece placement and how to assess a patient!
    3. Kristen: I also loved the hands-on learning experience. I really enjoyed assessing patients and learning how to best treat every body type!
    4. Carollee: My favorite part was doing the treatment on a lot of different people and body types. I was able to learn so much from the trainers and other providers. They also made it so fun!
  2. What are you able to bring back to CEC?
    1. Audrey: We are excited to put on amazing events in the coming months to showcase CoolSculpting and all the treatment has to offer!
    2. Christina: I feel confident in treating every area of the body. We really can treat to transformation, no matter what the problem area is!
    3. Kristen: I can bring back a better understanding of patient assessments, and the ability to educate patients more efficiently about the science behind CoolSclupting.
    4. Carollee: I feel like I have a sharper eye for assessing patients, and feel so confident in the treatment and our procedure process here at CEC. We do it the right way!
  3. What surprised you while you were there?
    1. Audrey: How many applicators can be used in one treatment. We were interested to see how they really maximized the surface area and the patient’s time by using multiple handpieces at once.
    2. Christina: The before and after photos were incredible. We know our patients look amazing, but we loved seeing every practice’s results as well!
    3. Kristen: I was blown away by how popular it’s becoming. Since CEC was one of the first practices in Maine to offer the treatment in 2010, it was amazing to see how widespread it’s become.
    4. Carollee: It was amazing to see how many people of all shapes and sizes benefit from CoolSculpting. Whether you are a new mom hoping to trim some tummy fat, or a young, active person who struggles with those last few pounds – CoolSculpting is for you!

CoolSculpting for Nonsurgical Fat Reduction

We all have stubborn fat on our bodies that won’t disappear, no matter how much we exercise or how healthy we eat. As frustrating as it is, it is a normal part of the aging process.

Thanks to advances in aesthetic technology, stubborn fat is not something we have to live with. In fact, modern advances in body sculpting treatments make it possible to remove fat without any needles, anesthetics or downtime. If you’re looking for an effective and safe way to get rid of trouble spots, CoolSculpting® might be for you.

What Is It?

CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill fat cells. In the weeks following the procedure, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells. CoolSculpting® can be used to eliminate fat on the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, arms and chin.

How It Works

For most practices, patients will come in to meet with the clinical staff for a consultation. During that time, the provider will evaluate the patients’ body type, and how many treatments are necessary to help them reach their goals. Once a treatment plan is established, the patient will come in for their first procedure. This process involves the application of a CoolSculpting® hand piece, which suctions the fat and brings the area to the targeted cooling temperature. After the procedure, the frozen fat cells slowly die and are expelled through the body’s natural processes.

CoolSculpting® treatments take roughly an hour per handpiece, and full results can be expected to be seen about two months after treatment. That’s about how long it takes for the body to thoroughly dispose of the newly damaged fat cells. Once the cells are treated, they are gone for good.

The Results

Our patients at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England find the procedure to be safe, comfortable, and most of all, effective. In fact, 95 percent of patients who have had CoolSculpting® done say they are very happy with the results.

It even makes it more difficult, though not impossible, to regain fat in the same area that was treated. However, CoolSculpting® is not a weight-loss treatment and should be used only when you’re already at a healthy, stable weight.

Feel free to contact us anytime to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Target Stubborn Body Fat with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting® in Portland, ME

You’ve done everything you can to win the battle of the bulge. You’ve adopted a healthy lifestyle, embracing portion control and foods that are good for you. You include physical activity in your daily regimen. You stay hydrated, and you get plenty of sleep. Your body should look phenomenal, but you still have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to everything you do. You’ve got those typical trouble spots, including extra fat around your midsection, more bulging areas on your arms and fat that is making your thighs bigger than you want to see. You want to find a solution, but you don’t want to face surgery. CoolSculpting® offers you another option.

What is CoolSculpting® All About?

CoolSculpting® is an innovative treatment alternative that can target stubborn body fat on your body, helping you to sculpt your figure. It uses freezing technology with a special device. Carefully controlled temperatures are used to freeze your fat cells. As the cells are frozen, they go away and are eventually eliminated from the body. There is no harm to your skin or any other tissues. Only the fat cells are targeted.

What to Expect During a CoolSculpting® Treatment

CoolSculpting® means no anesthesia, no incisions and no recovery time. You can go right back to your busy life immediately after a treatment session. The length of your treatment time and number of sessions will depend on how many areas need to be treated. When it is time for your session, you will sit back or lie down while the CoolSculpting® device is applied to the areas of your body where that pesky fat is hanging on. In general, clients consider CoolSculpting® to be a relaxing experience. You’ll get to take a break and eliminate fat at the same time.

CoolSculpting® is intended for individuals who have reached their ideal weight, or are within a close range of that weight. It will take several months to see the final results of your CoolSculpting® treatments. To maintain your results, you will need to continue to follow a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Exercise and diet will continue to be important.
