Dr Z. on CoolSculpting away ugly under chin fat
BATON ROUGE - Dr. Ann Zedlitz, local dermatologist, dropped by News 2 at 4 to bring some knowledge about brand new treatments that can treat unwanted fat under chins that can lead to the dreaded "double chin."
Dr. Z says research shows that five million people in the U.S. population say they're "very bothered" by their double chin, but the good doctor says SCIENCE IS TO THE RESCUE!
In the attached video, the dermatologist describes a newer technique called "Cool Sculpting" that uses the advantage of fat freezing at a higher temperature than other tissue like skin, muscle or nerves. The skin is then cooled a temperature where only the fat cells die (20 to 25 percent!), and your body takes care of eliminating the unwanted tissue.
She says it's the first and only completely non-invasive procedure of its kind. Until now, the only option was going under the knife or via liposuction. This new technique avoids the pain, scarring and expense. Dr. Z says within the hour you can have the procedure completed and be back at work with no downtime. Cost wise, patients are looking at about $1,800 for a series of two treatments that are scheduled six weeks apart. Results reveal themselves within three months so you'll get to enjoy seeing improvement almost immediately.
