Opposites attract! While we’ve heard it before, we do not often think about combining two opposing treatments when it comes to body contouring. Dr. Burgess of Burgess Plastic Surgery is here to show us why her Fire and Ice treatment is as ingenious as pairing salty and sweet.
What Is the Fire & Ice Treatment?
As the name suggests, Dr. Burgess’s Fire and Ice treatment takes advantage of extreme temperatures to sculpt, define, and shape stubborn areas. When combined, ThermiSmooth® and CoolSculpting® offer our Portland, Oregon patients a truly customized treatment:
The “Fire” to Tighten Loose Skin with ThermiSmooth
ThermiSmooth takes advantage of thermal heating to gently warm the targeted area, which melts fat, assists in skin tightening, and can even improve the appearance of cellulite.
The “Ice” to Target Stubborn Fat with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting uses a controlled cooling to freeze and kill fat cells. With each treatment, CoolSculpting permanently reduces the amount of fat by 20 to 30 percent.
ThermiSmooth & CoolSculpting Complement One Another
Whereas CoolSculpting is ideal for removing the bulk of fat accumulation, ThermiSmooth is able to fine-tune and tighten the targeted tissues including the skin. When used together on the right patient, the unique layering of these two non-surgical treatments can offer better results than when performed separately.
