The History of CoolSculpting: What It Is and Why It Works

CoolSculpting | Green Bay, WI

Freeze stubborn fat cells away

You have tried every weight-loss trick in the book, from overhauling your diet to maximizing your workout routine. All you want is a toned and healthy physique, but after countless miles run, weights lifted, and calories counted, you are still dealing with stubborn fat that just won’t budge.

It would be wonderful to simply sweat away love handles or trim the muffin top with targeted exercises. However, spot treatments have been proven largely ineffective, since fat cells affected by prolonged exercise can come from anywhere in the body, not just the part that is being worked on the most. That’s why many people end up turning to invasive procedures like liposuction to achieve their desired results.

Fortunately, liposuction is not your only solution! Recent technology has brought about an effective alternative to liposuction that provides comparable results with no down time. CoolSculpting is an exciting new procedure that has been revolutionizing the weight-loss world. Rapidly becoming one of the most popular contouring treatments available, CoolSculpting freezes fat cells away without damaging the surrounding tissues. It is noninvasive, safe, precise, and controlled, so you can target those unsightly bulges and watch them melt away. Here, the experts at Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic provide you all the information you need to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you.

A remarkable discovery

It all began with two brilliant scientists and kids eating popsicles.

Dr. Rox Anderson from Harvard Medical School and Dr. Dieter Manstein of Massachusetts General Hospital were both familiar with a strange phenomenon often seen in children who loved eating icy-cold treats. Over time, these children started developing dimples in their cheeks, which naturally changed their facial contours. This condition, dubbed “popsicle panniculitis,” was also documented in a case where a woman reported fat loss in her thighs after riding her horse naked in cold weather. How’s that for a weight loss plan?

In both cases, Dr. Anderson and Dr. Manstein noted that exposure of the body to cold temperatures resulted in fat loss in the targeted area. They decided to put their theory to the test and made a striking discovery. Since fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other body tissues, a targeted application of cold that lowers the tissue temperature to around 40 degrees will critically damage fat cells in the area. Over time, the fat cells die and the body naturally removes them, resulting in long-term fat elimination without harming the surrounding tissues.

The results were amazing, showing a reduction in approximately 20-25% of belly fat after just one treatment! Additional treatments produce similar results, which is very exciting for anyone seeking targeted fat reduction.

CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA for fat reduction in the flanks in 2010 and for stomach fat in 2012, and has been helping people everywhere improve the contours of their body ever since.

How CoolSculpting works

During your teenage years, the number of fat cells in your body typically stabilizes. Losing or gaining weight after this stabilization usually does not change the number of fat cells you have, just their size. In other words, dieting makes fat cells smaller while gaining weight makes fat cells bigger.

CoolSculpting does not help you lose weight, but simply reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas by gently freezing them to the point of cell death. Your body then naturally removes the dying cells.

Though it may take a few weeks or months to see full results, your body will become more sculpted over time. And once those treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good!

What to expect

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive and effective procedure that delivers localized cooling to gently target subcutaneous fat cells beneath the skin. No topical anesthesia or pain medication is required.

During the procedure, a specialist will apply a CoolSculpting cryolipolysis device to your trouble areas. The cryolipolysis device uses vacuum pressure to draw tissue into the applicator cup between cooling panels. Cooling is maintained for a predetermined time period to damage the fat cells. You may experience sensations of deep pulling, numbness, tugging, pinching, or slight discomfort. The procedure may take anywhere from one to several hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. After the procedure, you may experience minor side effects such as temporary numbness, swelling, tingling, bruising, redness, firmness, stinging, or pain at the treatment site.

The CoolSculpting process does take a little time to show results, but you could start seeing changes in as little as three weeks, with more dramatic results by two months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for four to six months after treatment.

Everything You Need to Know about BTL Cellutone

Everything You Need to Know about BTL Cellutone

Your body is your temple. You want to make sure it’s presentable and that you’re happy with it. That’s why you take meticulous care of it, buying products you’re told will help, and generally making sure you’re content with what you have. We get that at Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic, which is exactly why we work together with all our patients in achieving the body they both want and deserve. Of course, that means keeping up with the times and adapting the latest technology to make sure you’re satisfied. That’s why we’re here to talk about BTL Cellutone and why you need to know about it. Feel a bit confused because you’ve never heard about it? Or maybe you have, but don’t know whether it’s right for you? Don’t worry; you’re in the right place! Today, the Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic team will reveal all you need to know about BTL Cellutone

What’s BTL Cellutone and How Does It Work?

Essentially, BTL Cellutone helps you get the best results possible via noninvasive cellulite reduction, while also improving your skin’s texture. Harnessing the power of targeted vibrations, BTL Cellutone helps eliminate the main factors that cause cellulite formation, all while dramatically improving the skin’s appearance. The procedure works via mechanical vibrations, which enhance oxygen and microcirculation supply in the targeted area. What this does is then increase the blood supply and remove the excess interstitial fluid. While the process takes four to six sessions over a period of a few weeks, results can often be seen after the first session.

Treatments are quick and painless. After an application of gel to the treatment area via a special handpiece, some pressure will be applied. You’ll feel some square-shaped movements, which will decrease as the center contracts. Depending on the area treated, some other movements may be used; for the most part, though, the process doesn’t cause any discomfort. The treatment can also be used in different areas: abdomen, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and “love handles.”

Why Should I Use BTL Cellutone?

Yes, other technologies exist to reduce cellulite, but BTL Cellutone is the only one to use targeted mechanical vibrations. This causes much stronger stimulation and can reach deeper structures, which translates into visible results after the first treatment. This also means that, because of the intensity, fewer sessions will be required. This treatment is also recommended because of its noninvasive, nonsurgical methodology.

Another important benefit to note is BTL Cellutone is a pain-free treatment requiring no downtime; any side effects are minor. At most, you may experience some itching, a little bit of swelling or bruising, redness, or a few red spots. This means you won’t need to take time off work or dramatically change your daily schedule, and you’ll see dramatic results by the time the treatment is complete. BTL Cellutone improves your aesthetic appearance via advanced technology; no changes to your dietary habits or exercise routine are required, although they are encouraged.

Can I get BTL Cellutone at Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic?

Absolutely! At Hotchandani Laser Aesthetics in Green Bay and Appleton, WI, we’re constantly striving to make sure our patients receive the treatment they need to get the body they both want and deserve.

Everything You Need to Know about VASERlipo

Everything You Need to Know about VASERlipo

Your face and body represent and define you, making a very powerful statement about who you are. That’s why it makes sense to ensure you shine with your best face and body at all times—which is what we help you do at Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic. Whether it’s hair removal, acne treatment, or some other treatment or procedure you want done, we have you covered.

Now, we’re proud to announce the VASERlipo System to take body sculpting to the next level.

Have no idea what the VASERlipo System is or what it’s supposed to do? That’s why the Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic team is here, so keep reading…

What Is VASERlipo?

VASER is the latest evolution in devices that use ultrasound to liquefy fat before its removal via suction. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, which essentially means ultrasound. VASERlipo was designed to revamp and optimize body sculpting, providing incredible power and precision from one minimally invasive device. The easily maneuverable unit needs much less space and can provide unprecedented results in body sculpting procedures.

But it’s not magic; it’s rooted in science. Let’s look at the science behind the VASERlipo System.

Thin, multi-ringed probes emit minimal amounts of ultrasound energy to emulsify fatty components; fatty tissue cells are then dislodged from the supporting tissue matrix. This is done via the Acoustic Streaming effect the probes produce. Atraumatic cannulas called VentX® cannulas remove the emulsified fat but preserve the tissue matrix. It’s a four-step process: The fatty layer gets injected with tumescent fluid; the high-frequency vibrations make gas bubbles in the fluid expand and collapse, separating the fat cells from surrounding tissue matrix.  Emulsified fat is removed with VentX® cannulas; and then skin retraction happens via remodeling the preserved tissue.

Is VASERlipo Better?

Standard liposuction is often somewhat aggressive, whereas the VASERlipo System is quite the opposite, using milder and modern ultrasound techniques. A major advantage is that it can recognize differences between targeted fat and other important tissues. VASERlipo selectively seperates the fat from surrounding tissue, sparing nerves, vessels and surrounding matrix, which means it can save the good tissues while deconstructing the fat you want to eliminate. By turning the fat into liquid and immediately extracting it, healing is accelerated, leaving a natural finish in the end.

How Can the VASERlipo System Be Used?

Because VASERlipo is combined into one small, minimally invasive device, it allows the removal of much smaller amounts of fat, meaning precision contouring is no longer a dream, but something that can actually happen. Larger volumes can also be removed if you want rapid debulking. Finally, you can have your fat treated and removed during a VASERlipo System procedure, and then have it optimized for a fat transfer procedure. Combined, this means you’ll get powerful, proven results, since your connective tissue will remain and fat cells will still be viable if fat transfer is needed.

But it doesn’t stop there: VASERlipo also can let you take your treatment to a whole new level with VASER Hi-Def Sculpting. The fat around muscle groups can be removed, making your muscles look more defined and sculpted. Alternately, you can elect to have a VASERsmooth® procedure. VASERsmooth probes work like other VASERlipo probes, breaking apart fatty tissue while preserving connective tissue. However, the fragmentation edge can also be used to slice through hardened septa, which can cause contouring irregularities or skin dimpling. Suffice to say, the VASERlipo System is an extremely comprehensive product that can be used for a wide array of results!

Can I Get VASERlipo at Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic?

Absolutely! VASERlipo works on a wide variety of patients and situations. Whether you have a post-pregnancy body, are male, or want to have the procedure done while awake, our experienced surgeons can help. We understand the importance of making sure you’re proud and confident in the body and face you have, and we constantly stay on top of the latest technology to make sure it’s effective for you.

No matter what situation you find yourself in, give us a call so we can discuss your options and help you fully understand how the VASERlipo System works. At Hotchandani Laser Aesthetic in Appleton and Green Bay, we strive to make sure you’re fully satisfied with the body you have.

Feel free to get in touch with us. If you’re in Green Bay, call us at (920) 497-9996; in Appleton, call (920) 738-6666. We look forward to hearing from you!

Tattoo Removals

Tattoo Removal

The Fastest and Most Effective Tattoo Removal Method

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably found yourself in the tattoo regret phase. While tattoos have become extremely popular among all ages, according to the Harris Poll (one of the longest running surveys measuring public opinion in the US), about three in 10 Americans (29%) have at least one tattoo.

 

With rising popularity, it also stands to reason that there would be higher rates of tattoo regret as well. The same Harris Poll survey also showed that nearly one fourth (23%) of those with tattoos stated that they regret getting one.

Why do people get tattoos removed?

There are a number of reasons that people decide to remove their tattoos. In fact, it is becoming more and more popular in the competitive working world. The main reasons people decide to remove their ink include:

 

  • A bad-looking tattoo: While there are so many skilled tattoo artists out there, sometimes people end up going to a tattoo parlor without any prior research and end up with an amateur tattoo artist that isn’t any good. Sometimes, poor tattoo work or misspelled words can be covered up or re-worked, but sometimes there’s no option but to have the tattoo removed.
  • Faded ink: While today’s tattoo ink holds up a lot better than the stuff used 20 years ago, some tattoos fade over time. Who wants a dull and blurry tattoo?
  • Poor tattoo choice: Remember when you wore that horrendous outfit, like every day, when you were 12 years old? But for some reason, you thought you were too cool for school. The same thing happens with tattoo choices. Whether it’s Bugs Bunny, Hello Kitty, or the words “No Regrets” largely tattooed across your forearm, what might have seemed like a good idea at the time, now just isn’t. It’s okay to move on.
  • Joining the military: While having a tattoo doesn’t necessarily prohibit you from joining the military there are some tattoos that will not be accepted. All of your tattoos will be assessed during the standard eligibility physical and are subject to approval. Some branches of service are stricter than others, but the location, size and subject matter all play a role.
  • Changing or advancing careers: While tattoos have become more and more accepted by society at large, many careers, particularly in the corporate world, still deem tattoos as unprofessional and, sometimes, downright unacceptable. Switching careers or moving up the corporate ladder may require removing tattoos, in order to be accepted and taken seriously.
  • Personal choice: Some people just don’t want their tattoos anymore. For a number of reasons, it’s time to move on!

 

What happens during tattoo removal?

When people decide it’s time to get rid of a tattoo, they first do a search about the tattoo removal process. Does it hurt? If is worth it? What does it cost? Does it actually work?

 

The laser tattoo removal works by select absorption of the light energy of the laser by the tattoo’s ink particles in the skin. This is how the surrounding skin tissue remains unharmed. When the tattoo ink particles absorb the laser light energy, they shatter into smaller ink particles. After each laser treatment, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink. This is why the tattoo removal process takes time and requires a series of laser treatments to shatter more and more of the ink and for the body to flush it away.

 

PicoSure: The latest advancement in laser tattoo removal


PicoSure is fast becoming one of the most popular laser treatments available on the market today. It is a FDA-approved picosecond laser with PressureWave technology. PicoSure’s laser energy bursts are measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second) and these ultra-short pulses specifically target ink particles much more effectively than traditional Q-switch lasers. Compared to Q-switch lasers (measured only in nanoseconds), PicoSure is more effective on colors that are difficult to remove and ends up requiring fewer treatments.

 

Get faster and more effective tattoo removals

If a tattoo is holding you back from getting a job you want or keeps reminding you of past regrets, this newer tattoo removal process might be right for you. With PicoSure technology, the laser tattoo removal process is faster,  more effective and safer due to the recent advancement of the Picosecond laser technology.

Ultra Femme 360: Nonsurgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

The signs of aging go beyond crow’s feet, laugh lines, and sunspots on our face, arms and other visible body parts. Although rarely discussed, it is very common for aging women or women who have had a number of children to experience vaginal laxity and stress urinary incontinence. Until recently, options for vaginal rejuvenation have been surgical involving pain and long recovery times.

The creators of Ultra Femme 360 wanted to offer their patients a pain-free, comfortable, nonsurgical treatment to improve stress incontinence, vaginal laxity, and improve sex lives.

 

The fastest non-invasive treatment option for vaginal rejuvenation


BTL Aesthetics, the creators of Ultra Femme 360, first launched their business in 1993. Over the past 24 years, they’ve become one of the world’s major manufacturers of medical and aesthetic equipment. They’ve committed themselves to state-of-the-art products that put patients’ need at the heart of every decision they make. And when it comes to vaginal rejuvenation, they’ve gone the extra mile to ensure the comfort, safety, and happiness of women’s intimate parts.

In March 2017, BTL Aesthetics launched the Ultra Femme 360 technology at the American Academy of Dermatology’s annual meeting. The noninvasive technology of the Ultra Femme device is a first of its kind as it significantly shortens treatment times, increases safety, and improves comfort.

Who benefits from Ultra Femme 360 treatments?


At first, a lot of potential patients think, “Do I really need such a treatment down there?” Before visiting our office, they continue to wonder if vaginal rejuvenation might improve their sex lives, stress incontinence and/or overall sexual confidence. They wonder if it’s “really worth it.”

The Ultra Femme 360 makes your choice so much easier because it eliminates any worry of pain, discomfort, infection, discharge or downtime that can be associated with other treatment options such as ablative lasers. And since it can treat both internally and externally in the same session, it is suitable for women in their 20s, 30s, 40s and older.

More and more women are choosing Ultra Femme 360 for both cosmetic and medical reasons. Whether you’re looking to restore the appearance of your outer parts or want to improve inner tightness, this 3-session procedure boasts zero recovery time, making it quick, comfortable and very discreet.

How does the Ultra Femme 360 work?

The Ultra Femme 360 utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat tissues at high temperatures. Don’t worry, it’s not painful. It has a built-in Energy Flow Control system, which ensures that you remain comfortable during the entire treatment and that the device delivers the optimal temperature to the tissues.

During the treatment, the 360° disposable tip is inserted and moves alongside the entire length of the vaginal canal. As the device moves back and forth, the objective is to elevate the target tissue to over 40°C. How does this produce the results you desire?

Well, the RF technology safely and effectively stimulates collagen regeneration to reduce laxity and improves circulation for reduced dryness. This is the same type of technology that has been hugely successful in aesthetic procedures for reducing wrinkles, improve cellulite, laxity and noninvasive fat removal on the body. With Ultra Femme 360 by BTL Aesthetics, doctors can utilize this powerful technology on women’s most intimate parts.

 

Why say “Yes” to the Ultra Femme 360 procedure?

If you’re considering restoring the health and appearance of your intimate lady parts from issues such as stress urinary incontinence, vaginal atrophy, and dryness, and improve confidence and sexual satisfaction, Ultra Femme 360 is a top choice. What makes Ultra Femme 360 stand out from other noninvasive treatments?

Only 8 minutes per treatment

Ultra Femme 360 offers the fastest radio frequency treatment available for vaginal rejuvenation on the market today. Each treatment is only 8 minutes due to the 360° design of the applicator’s tip. Not only is the treatment pain-free and has zero downtime, but you now only have to experience eight minutes of treatment. This is a noticeable and significant improvement for a procedure that targets your most intimate areas.

Adjusted comfort

Because every patient’s needs are different, there are two form-fitting applicator tip sizes to suit your needs. Your provider will pick the correct one to help increase procedural comfort and effectiveness.

 

Fast results


The number of treatments needed depends on the individual of course, but the usual number of sessions applied is three. Patients have reported a noticeable improvement even after just one session.

Are you ready to feel like a confident woman again?

Cellfina-Go Short With Long Lasting Cellulite Solution

Published on: May 5, 2017

Cellfina-Social-Media-Cover-Photo

Are you bothered by Cellulite? Does it stop you from wearing the shorts, dresses or swimsuits you want? If you answered yes, you are not alone. Women of all ages struggle with cellulite even when living a healthy lifestyle. Finally, an FDA proven treatment that actually treats the primary structural cause of cellulite.*

Are you a Cellfina candidate?

-Adult female with cellulite on the thigh and/or buttocks area

What Cellfina treats?

Call it what you want – cottage cheese, hail damage, dimples or orange peel. Cellulite is described in many different ways. But the structural cause (fibrous septae) is always the same, and Cellfina is a proven solution.*

Cellulite Overview:

Cellulite is fat that collects below the surface of the skin, causing the skin to look dimpled, and is prevalent in 85% of women ages 24-54 in the U.S. The most common areas for cellulite are around the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. There are multiple reasons your body develops cellulite, including: Genetic influences, Hormonal influences, Lifestyle, Weight gain or loss.

The Primary Cause of Cellulite:

-Fibrous bands (septae) hold fat cells in compartments below the skin surface.

-As fat cells become enlarged beneath the skin, they push up and out against the skin.

-The fibrous bands, which are anchored to the skin, pull down on the skin, causing a dimpling effect on the skin surface.

You’ve tried everything, but those dimples on your thighs and butt just won’t budge:

Have you tried any of these things to treat your cellulite? : weight loss, massages, topical treatments, herbal products, skin tightening with radio frequency devices, or liposuctions? These remedies might address other factors like skin laxity or the effects of weight change, but nothing solves the true cause of cellulite. What you need is a long-lasting solution with Cellfina.*

The Cellfina Difference:

Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years.*

-Minimally invasive: an outpatient procedure in an office setting with little discomfort or downtime*

-Effective: combines highly advanced, proprietary technology with a well-established procedure called Subcision to treat the structural cause of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks*

-Long Lasting: Results last for at least three years the longest FDA clearance for a cellulite treatment, with a patient satisfaction rate of 97% at three years!*

*Results and patient experience may vary.
