SculpSure vs CoolSculpting

How Is SculpSure Different Than CoolSculpting in Virginia Beach, VA: Differences in Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Technologies

Here is a question that we here at Norfolk Plastic Surgery have received from time to time – how is Virginia Beach SculpSure non-invasive fat reduction different than CoolSculpting? Great question! The two technologies yield the same clinical results, but SculpSure – as a newer, and more advanced technology – has many benefits and advantages that CoolSculpting does not.

(SculpSure is clinically proven & FDA-cleared to permanently reduce up to 24% of fat cells in a treated area from just 1 session. Since treatment plans typically include 2 sessions, SculpSure results exceed this.)

Read more to find out what these benefits are!

Time of Treatment – SculpSure only takes 25 minutes per area, whereas CoolSculpting can take up to an hour or more per area. SculpSure is certainly the quickest non-invasive fat reduction treatment available today, often easily fitting into a lunch break.

Side Effects – SculpSure does not incur any of the swelling, bruising or nerve pain that can accompany CoolSculpting. Side effects with SculpSure are typically far more manageable. The nerve pain that can accompany CoolSculpting can be quite intense.

“Thermal Spread” – Because SculpSure uses heat – and not freezing – we are able to achieve a “thermal spread” outside the treatment zone. This means that you are receiving fat cell loss even outside the immediate area, so everything will look smooth and even – and no one will be able to tell where the SculpSure treatment ended or began. This is not the case with CoolSculpting, which can lead to very severe lumps, bumps and “bites.”

Microdermabrasion Norfolk

Skin care is so important and unfortunately many people don’t realize this until there is already damage. Luckily, today there are more treatment options available than ever before to rejuvenate and repair the skin. At Norfolk Plastic Surgery we are happy to offer many skin care treatments to keep your skin looking it’s very best. One of the skin care treatments we offer is Microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion works by using tiny crystals to remove the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal the smooth, healthy skin beneath. Since Microdermabrasion is removing that dead outer layer of skin, any skin imperfection on that layer will also be removed such as uneven skin pigmentation, fine line, wrinkles and sun damage. Consulting with a skin care specialist is the best way to determine if Microdermabrasion is the right treatment option for you. Contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

Brow Lift Norfolk

Our faces are communicating things to other people constantly, even when we arenít aware of it. The lines of our faces tell a story about how we are feeling and this is why it is so important that our faces are telling the trust story about how we are feeling. This is the reasons many men and women opt for a Brow Lift procedure. The face, particularly the forehead and area around the eyes, is often one of the first places we begin to show signs of aging. As these creases and wrinkles form it can make us appear more angry, upset or tired than we actually are. Often the brow can become heavy and hang low over the eyes. Theses are all issues that Brow Lift surgery can address to help restore a more youthful, relaxed, alert, and natural appearance.

Breast Lift Norfolk

Breast lift surgery, also called Mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the breasts after sagging has set in. As we get older that are a number of changes that occur from our faces all the way down our bodies. It effects each of us in different ways and areas, but there are certain factors that can especially seed up sagging in the breasts. Pregnancy, nursing, fluctuations in weight or weight loss, as well as the natural aging process, genetics, and gravity can all contribute to a more exaggerated sagging appearance.

It is important to know that the breast lift alone does not enhance breast size, so women looking to both enhance their breast fullness as well as create a lift in the breasts may opt to combine the breast lift with a breast augmentation procedure. It is also important to note that breast lift procedure incisions are permanent–though we always try our best to hide incisions in areas that are naturally disguised such as the crease of the breasts. The breast lift can create a more perky and youthful appearance. If you are interested in learning more about the breast lift procedure, recovery process, and what kind of results are possible through this procedure, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation today.

Liposuction Norfolk Body Contouring

Liposuction is one way to achieve your ideal body contouring when diet and exercise have failed to give you the results you desire. Liposuction is performed through tiny incisions in the desired area through which a cannula is inserted and the fat suctioned out. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body from the mid-section to the thighs, the back to the arms, the knees and even the neck.

Sometimes Liposuction is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as an arm lift, thigh lift, or tummy tuck. Ideal candidates for Liposuction are in good mental and physical health with realistic expectations for the procedure and its potential results, and they should be non-smokers as well. To learn more about this procedure and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

Nose Surgery Norfolk

Nose Surgery, also called Rhinoplasty, is a procedure that can improve the appearance of the nose and/or the function of the nose. Many people are dissatisfied with an aspect of the appearance of the nose they were born with and Nose Surgery can help create the nose they want, the nose that best compliments their other features. Sometimes the nose is disfigured due to injury and nose surgery can help correct that as well.

As the central feature of the face, the nose can affect the entire facial balance and harmony and can change the way we perceive the proportions of the other features of the face. Nose surgery can correct nose width, bumps and indentations, the tip of the nose being too large/bulbous/downturned/upturned, nostrils that are too wide or large, and nasal asymmetry or deviation. If you are interested in learning more about nose surgery and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with our office today.
