You don’t have to drive all the way to Portland to contour, sculpt, and shape your body safely with CoolSculpting. VIDA Aesthetic Medicine is more than a medical day spa in Salem, and offers this revolutionary, non-invasive fat reduction procedure. You’ve probably heard of CoolSculpting before and maybe you’ve been wanting to try it for years. CoolSculpting treatments are fast, requiring just 30 – 60 minutes on average, but it’s not very convenient when you have to drive over an hour each way to your appointment. That’s why VIDA is offering CoolSculpting specifically for those in Salem and the surrounding area.

CoolSculpting works by freezing away fat cells in a completely safe, comfortable environment. When unwanted fat is “frozen” to an exact degree, it causes the fat to “die” without negatively affecting the skin. This unwanted fat is then metabolized and naturally expelled in the days and weeks following CoolSculpting. This allows your esthetician to expertly target only the areas of unwanted fat you want removed—which is usually stubborn fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise alone.

How is CoolSculpting Different than Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure, and that comes with all the inherent risks of surgery including general anesthesia and potential infections. Liposuction is also considered a fat loss surgery whereas CoolSculpting reduces fat in order to contour the body. The ideal candidates for CoolSculpting are at or close to their goal weight, but struggle with areas of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Liposuction requires downtime, whereas CoolSculpting does not. In fact, CoolSculpting is so comfortable that most clients answer emails, scroll through social media, or catch up on their favorite shows during their treatment. No anesthesia is required for CoolSculpting, so clients can get right back to their daily lives after the treatment. It’s a popular lunch hour procedure, especially when your CoolSculpting appointment is conveniently located in Salem.

Will the Fat Come Back?

No. Once fat is permanently* removed, such as when it’s frozen away by CoolSculpting, it can’t “grow back.” Diet and exercise can shrink fat cells, but these approaches don’t remove them. CoolSculpting is a means of actually sculpting the body through targeted fat freezing. If you’d like to learn more about Salem CoolSculpting, connect with VIDA today by calling (503) 399-0021.
