Las Vegas – At the fall edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), Susan Van Dyke, M.D., discussed the technological breakthroughs that have made many noninvasive fat treatments so successful. She is a Paradise Valley, Arizona-based dermatologist.
In her 32 years’ practice experience, she said, “I’ve seen many devices come and go.” The $4.3 billion noninvasive body shaping and skin tightening market, of which CoolSculpting commands 36%, is here to stay, she said.
“We must distinguish between long-lasting and temporary fat reduction.” Many devices such as low-level laser treatments produce satisfactory results, she said, but they require multiple treatments and a maintenance regimen. The treatments are painless, and results appear immediately. “But you’re not really killing fat cells for good. So if that cell isn’t dead, it’s coming back.”
