Miami is a place that’s known for it’s warm, balmy weather and beautiful people. It’s home to a slew of celebrities as well. Stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Sofia Vergara and the Kardashian’s all have taken root in this tropical paradise. It’s no wonder that Miami is also one of the top places in the world to visit for plastic surgery. There is a price to pay if you want to look your best and turn-back the hands of time. Even younger celebrities like Khloé Kardashian, who recently went through a major transformation, are not keeping their cosmetic under-goings a secret.
Even though Khloe denies going under the knife, she does admit to regularly going in for laser and Coolsculpting treatments. In a recent article for New Beauty she states “I love lasers and I do a ton of them on my face; I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I do them more for discoloration, but they do tighten, too. I’ve also done Coolsculpting and treatments for the stretch marks on my butt. I’m a huge fan of lasers and I love them.”
In America, breast augmentation and nose reshaping are currently the most requested cosmetic procedures today, but Coolsculpting, Botox and skin-smoothing lasers are the fastest-growing non-invasive procedures. More and more people are choosing to try less evasive procedures before going under the knife to correct imperfections on their face and body. The newest procedure, Coolsculpting is an excellent choice for people who are generally in good shape and within 30 pounds of their ideal weight. The non-invasive procedure is a great option for getting rid of areas of stubborn fat that many people find impossible to shed even after following a strict diet and working out regularly. The most commonly treated sections of the body are the stomach, thighs, lower back (love handles) and butt.
Coolsculpting works by using a method called “cold energy”, where fat cells are permanently destroyed using controlled freezing. The machine works by suctioning an area of fat and applying just enough cold to freeze fat cells. The fat cells are “killed” while the surface skin, nerves, and blood vessels are left unharmed. About 20% of the fat is killed during the procedure and rest gets released into the body. Slowly the fat is absorbed and used as energy. The permanent physical results can be seen after just a few weeks. The average cost of coolsculpting per area is between $1,400 and $1,600.
It’s important to find an accredited and reputable medical facility or doctor when thinking about doing any type of cosmetic treatment. For more information on Coolsculpting, visit AOB Med Spa’s website.
