The Difference Between a CoolSculpting Cycle and Treatment Phoenix

The Difference Between a CoolSculpting Cycle and Treatment


Are you tired of dealing with stubborn pockets of fat, no matter how much you exercise? If this sounds like you, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting! Read on to learn more about this treatment and its process regarding cycles and treatments.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a permanent solution to stubborn fat. It uses controlled cooling technology to target and freeze stubborn fat cells, eliminating them for good. However, what many patients get confused about regarding CoolSculpting is the difference between a cycle and a treatment.

When it comes to the difference between these two terms, cycles consist of one specific treatment area. For example, if you are treating your arms, your right arm will be one cycle and your left arm will be another cycle, and that is considered one treatment. Then, a month later, you would come in for your second treatment which, again, consists of those two cycles.

CoolSculpting can be used in many areas of the body including a double chin, upper arms, abdomen, flanks, and inner and outer thighs. This means that the number of cycles that make up your treatment will be unique.

Is there Downtime Involved?

Because CoolSculpting is completely nonsurgical and there are no incisions or stitches involved, there is no downtime required after your treatment. While some patients may feel some soreness or tingling in the treatment area(s), this is normal and will lessen over time.

How the SkinPen can Rejuvenate your Complexion Phoenix

How the SkinPen can Rejuvenate your Complexion

Microneedling, The Vampire Facial, Collagen Induction Therapy, Derma Rolling – it’s all the same, right? No… not so fast!

The Vampire Facial, Collagen Induction Therapy, and Derma Rolling can be performed with a number of devices, most of which are considered cosmetic needling devices (almost anyone can perform the service) vs. medical needling which requires a trained physician or trained skincare professional to perform the treatment.

Cosmetic vs. Medical

Microneedling uses tiny, sharp needles to create small holes, called micro-channels, in your skin. These micro-injuries trigger your skin’s natural healing process, including the production of collagen. Cosmetic needling uses short needles (less than .5 mm long) to fractionally stimulate your skin’s outer layers. Medical needling uses longer needles (.5 mm and longer) to stimulate the dermis, your skin’s deeper layers. The longer needles (up to 2.5 mm) reach the deep dermis, making it possible to treat acne scarring and other scars by breaking up scar tissue and inducing skin remodeling. There is only one FDA approved device for the medical collagen generating treatment – SkinPen.

About the SkinPen

The SkinPen creates controlled micro-injuries to simulate the body’s natural wound healing process, motivating collagen production. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound during the remodeling process for a rejuvenated complexion.

With a SkinPen treatment you can anticipate:

  • a comfortable treatment
  • a short treatment – usually just 30 minutes
  • post-procedure effects similar to a sunburn
  • safe on all skin types
  • little to no downtime
  • beautiful, lasting results
