Body contouring is becoming increasingly popular throughout the United States. The Dermatology Times looks at the latest trends in a recent article titled “Body contouring breakthroughs and directions.”
According to the author of the article, “Medicine has seen remarkable advances in the last several years, and cosmetic dermatology is no exception. At the 2015 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery’s annual meeting, Vic. A. Narurkar, M.D., of Bay Area Laser Institute, San Francisco, co-moderated a session about body contouring, providing participants with valuable information on the latest devices, agents, and approaches for non-invasive fat reduction. ‘Non-invasive contouring, primarily the treatment of fat, has really evolved over the past five years since CoolSculpting, the first FDA-approved device,’ was introduced, says Dr. Narurkar. ‘CoolSculpting itself has transformed the practice and the landscape in general to being a very viable option to treating unwanted fat. We now have long-term experience—and I’m a little biased because we use CoolSculpting in the practice—we have a lot of experience and now new devices are coming in to provide modalities for treating fat. When CoolSculpting first came out, we were doing one-session treatments with one adapter to treat the flanks. It’s now evolved to multiple adaptors and multiple indications for non-invasive fat reduction. Now we can treat the flanks, the abdomen, the thighs, and most recently, submental fat.’”
Vanity Fair also takes a look at body contouring, specifically CoolSculpting, in a recent article titled “Talking CoolSculpting with Molly Sims.” Sunhee Grinnell of Vanity Fair writes, “More and more women are looking every day for solutions to deal with excess fat here and there (i.e., the tummy, thighs, love handles, back fat) that just won’t go away no matter how much exercise they do. This is where CoolSculpting comes in: a non-invasive treatment that launched in the U.S. in 2010 and that has been a popular alternative to surgery. This unique procedure, developed by Harvard scientists, is based on the proprietary science of Cryolipolysis, which demonstrates that when fat cells are exposed to extreme cold they die and are eliminated naturally from the body. There are more than 50 published clinical papers reporting on the successful outcomes of more than 4,000 CoolSculpting-clinical-trial patients, and you can read these studies yourself.”
