Here's Why Cold Packs Aren't a Substitute for CoolSculpting

coolsculpting dallas

If you have heard about CoolSculpting near Dallas, you might hear about how the doctor who developed it came up with the idea. In a study from the 1970s, it was discovered that children who regularly ate Popsicles developed dimples, because the fat cells in the cheeks were continuously exposed to freezing cold temperatures. From this observation, CoolSculpting technology was developed to treat areas of unwanted fat throughout the body. If that’s the case, why can’t you just apply an ice pack to areas of stubborn fat and see results comparable to CoolSculpting? As we explore the answer to this question, it is important to remember that CoolSculpting technology was merely inspired by a simple idea, but the technology itself had to be rigorously tested and perfected to precisely cool fat cells to see loss of inches without damaging skin, muscle, and nerve tissues in the process.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure.

FDA approval is a mark of safety and care quality for a given procedure, which is something that you can expect with CoolSculpting. The risks of side effects from CoolSculpting are very low in the appropriate care setting of a med spa or plastic surgeon’s office, but at-home care with the application of ice packs can damage the skin, cause permanent nerve damage, and fail to deliver any noticeable results of fat loss.

Home care does not provide temperature control and monitoring.

Quite simply, putting a cold pack on the skin and allowing it to cool a certain area will not have an impact on fat loss, because a more controlled temperature is needed. Not only does CoolSculpting cool fat cells without damaging the skin, but it does so with constant control and monitoring to have the most impact on unwanted fat cells while leaving other healthy tissues unharmed.

Only a doctor can determine your eligibility for fat-reducing treatments.

Aside from considering whether there is an at-home alternative to CoolSculpting, it’s also important to think about whether fat-reducing treatment is even right for you. Not everyone is eligible for this and other body sculpting procedures, so it’s best to see a qualified physician to discuss your needs.

Is Your Neck Betraying Your Age?

Most people think of the skin on their faces when they think about aging, but your neck could actually be what is making you look older than you feel. Fortunately, a number of non-invasive treatments can be effective at improving its appearance. Here is what you need to know about skin aging on your neck and what you can do to fight back.

Why is the skin on the neck so prone to aging?
The skin on your neck is thinner than the skin on your face, so when age-related changes occur, they show there. In fact, the skin on your neck may show the signs of aging much sooner than the skin on your face. Likewise, many people forget about their necks when they’re following their daily skin care regime on their faces, so necks don’t benefit from anti-aging cleansers and lotions. All of these factors work together to make neck skin prone to wrinkling and sagging as collagen and elastin levels decline.

What can I do at home to reduce aging skin on my neck?
Start by paying attention to your neck when you’re caring for the skin on your face. Treat the skin on your neck with anti-aging topicals, so it gets the same nutrients as your face. Apply sunscreen to your neck daily as you do your face to reduce aging caused by sun exposure. You may also consider the way you sleep. Side sleeping can intensify neck wrinkles, so try training yourself to sleep in a different position, or do skin toning exercises, like neck stretches, to tone the muscles under the skin.

What treatments are available at medical spas?
There are a number of medical spa treatments that can reverse the signs of aging on your neck. Thermage and Ultherapy use different forms of energy to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which in turn makes skin look fuller and healthier. Botox and Dysport are injectables that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Laser treatments, including Fraxel, IPL Photofacials, and laser skin resurfacing, can also be helpful.

Don’t let your neck tell your age! EpiCentre can recommend the right medical spa treatments in Dallas to help your neck look toned and youthful. Get more information about our state-of-the-art treatments by calling our med spa at (214) 887-1577.
