Give Dr. Amy Vaughan Dermatology a call to learn more about how fat freezing can help you achieve the body of your dreams.

Coolsculpting® in the Ashland KY area has been growing in popularity as more and more people discover this exciting non-invasive body contouring procedure. Using the power of cool temperatures, body fat can be destroyed and removed from your body using its own natural processes. Thanks to the effectiveness of fat freezing, Dr. Amy Vaughan is recommending this process to patients who seek to remove fat from their abdomen, back, and love handle areas.

Coolsculpting® can benefit patients who already have a healthy physique, but require additional body contouring that cannot be achieved through only their workout routine. Problem areas around the mid-section can be particularly difficult to target through exercise and diet alone. Fat stubbornly stick to these areas, a problem that seems to get worse as we age. Fortunately, the fat freezing process is able to treat exactly these areas and provide effective results. Patients who seek fat freezing in the Ashland KY area can undergo Coolsculpting® in Barboursville WV at Dr. Amy Vaughan’s office. During your initial consultation, Dr. Amy Vaughan and her experienced staff will be able to determine if CoolSculpting® will be able to help you achieve your specific goals.

Coolsculpting® works by literally freezing fat cells in the targeted areas during the procedure. This unique process, known as cyrolipolysis, is able to kill only fat cells, while leaving surrounding skin and tissue undamaged. This is because fat freezes, and thus dies, at a higher temperature than skin and tissue. Other non-invasive processes, such as those that involve the use of ultrasound energy, are not able to selectively target only fat cells, increasing pain and discomfort to patients during the procedure. Coolsculpting® remains a low pain procedure due to this simple principle.

Coolsculpting® is a truly non-invasive procedure – the device remains outside of your body during the treatment and no scalpels, needles, or even anesthesia are required. The treatment causes little discomfort to most patients. At the beginning of the procedure, patients typically experience an intense feeling of cold, but this soon goes away as their body acclimates to the sensation. The procedure usually lasts 2 to 3 hours, depending on the areas being treated. The patient can rest comfortably during this time, or take the time to work, read, or listen to music. After the procedure, there may be some redness and a tingling sensation as the skin returns to its normal temperature. Some patients may experience a minor amount of swelling or bruising, which resolves on its own within a few days.
