How CoolSculpting Works
Sculpt Your Body Better with F.I.T. Treatments at Trilogy Medical Center
Fire and Ice and Tightening at Trilogy Medical Center can help you achieve the look you want through these three revolutionary technologies. Each of these treatments bring body sculpting, fat reduction, and improved skin tone to your body and can be done in comfortable, in and out sessions at the Trilogy Medical Center.
The first part of the therapy uses "fire," or the application of heat under the skin, to trigger your body's natural healing fibers, collagen and elastin, to reach the area, counterbalance the cold feeling from the coolsculpting, and give your skin a firm, even texture that smooths out wrinkles, lines, and cellulite.
How it works
Alma Laser technology works beneath your skin to generate heat in two shades of light: red and green. The red light promotes healthy collagen and elastin production, which smooths out lines and wrinkles, reducing the look and appearance of aging. The green light reduces the skin edema layer, which means that your body will not have the lines and sagginess sometimes associated with quick, fat burning treatments.

The heat from the Alma Laser technology also stimulates the body's natural healing cycle, releasing the collagen and elastin that it will need to benefit most from the treatment. After the treatment is over, those fibers will naturally tighten your skin for a more healthful look.
The results come from the deep penetration offered by the Alma laser technology. It generates radio frequency (RF) energy and delivers it to the skin, but usually your skin tries to radiate it back towards the energy source. The Alma technology is able to overcome the body's natural impedance and send heat beneath the outer layers of your skin to have a greater effectiveness. Deeper penetration triggers more of a healing reaction from your body, and we can program the machines to the precise depth and degree that your treatment plan requires.
The heating element increases gradually and is paired with a cooling element (the coolscupting) so it is relatively pain-free and comfortable. It is safe for all skin types and even more delicate and visible areas such as the face and neck. The machine is very focused and can isolate select areas of the skin for treatment, removing the fat where you want it gone without affecting large areas of your body.
Patients who use the F.I.T therapy find benefits from all aspects of the treatment. The heat generated by the "fire" technology can help balance out uneven skin tone and smooth unevenly textured skin with the focused microplasma RF technology, making it an effective treatment option for cellulite. The same technology can also work to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and rhytids to make skin appear both younger and healthier.
Best of all, it is a treatment option with minimal downtime. Trilogy Medical Center knows you have a lot to do in the Salt Lake City area, and won't want to spend all day in our center. After going in for a therapy session, you can be on your way, grab a latte, and know that you are taking the right step towards a slimmer and firmer body.
If you have ever wanted to see your fat cells frozen away and gone for good, that day has come. The Coolsculpting procedure is one of the world's most popular, non-invasive methods to remove stubborn fat without surgery or recovery time. Whether it's a love handle or a wobbling double chin, the second facet of the FIT procedure can make a difference in your life.
How it Works
Scientists have observed that cold can actually freeze and remove fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue. With precisely controlled cooling technology, the fat cells can be isolated and destroyed within your body without the need for invasive surgery. This discovery formed the basis for the coolsculpting procedure used by us here at the Trilogy Medical Center.

The fat cells are selectively frozen and crystallized, then they die. After they die, your body will naturally start the process the fat and dead cells and removes them from your physique. It takes a few weeks for the entire process to be completed, but once it finishes, the fat cells are gone from your body for good. Also, only fat cells in the treated areas will be killed off. All cells in other parts of your body will be perfectly safe.
Your body only has so many fat cells to start with, and does not produce any more. Stubborn love handles and other weight gain issues occur because those cells collectively gather and remain at certain parts of the body while we age. Once the fat cells have been frozen and killed, they can no longer pose a problem and the body cannot produce any more of them. Therefore, the "ice" part of the three-part procedure may take a few weeks to really show results, but the changes will stay with you for the long term.
Many people are surprised to learn that there is a difference between losing weight and losing fat cells, because the fat cells are what makes us fat, right? Actually, when we gain or lose weight, the number of fat cells in our body remains constant. The final ones are normally produced sometime during the teenage years, so by our 20s we have as many as we will get.
Weight gain is therefore caused not by getting more fat cells, but rather by the ones we already have getting larger. The bigger they get, the more weight we gain, and the same principle applies to losing weight, just in reverse. That's why sometimes you can diet, exercise, and still have the weight, the fat cells in certain areas are just not getting any smaller.
By freezing and gradually killing and removing the fat cells themselves in those areas, you eliminate the possibility of them ever coming back or growing again. That is the major benefit of fat freezing technology versus other diet and weight loss gimmicks. The results are a more sculpted body, not necessarily immediate weight loss.
We use Acoustic Radial Wave Therapy to safely smooth out and tighten the skin at the final stage of each FIT session. This therapy is a safe, simple way to sculpt your body into a new shape. Specifically, it reduces the edema in your skin to bring down the puffiness of cellulite and make your layers more permeable to the "cleanup crews" which remove toxins from your fat cells.
How it Works
The Acoustic Radial Wave Therapy reduces cellulite and leaves smooth, tight skin in its place. It generates an instant reaction of a butterfly-like effect, raising the body's metabolism in the treated area. It is designed to work in areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs.

The Acoustic Radial Wave Therapy reduces tissue edema, which is one of the side effects to cellulite. Edema causes puffiness in the skin, so one quick benefit of reducing it through this therapy is the subsequent tightening of your skin.
The treatment also makes the layers beneath the skin more permeable, so the body can naturally remove and clear out the fluids and toxins held in fat cells. The ice therapy will already be killing the fat cells, so this enhances the results of the second stage of work. When the fluids and toxins have been removed, you will start to see a firmer, more shapely body.
This part is a pain-free, non-invasive procedure. It lasts about twenty minutes and like the Fire and Ice of FIT, you can resume all your normal activities once you are done.
Tightening gives many benefits to your abdomen, hips, thighs and other areas prone to cellulite and stubborn fat. It is an FDA approved, non-invasive procedure so we can assure you that you can feel comfortable and relaxed during the process.
For your body, after the treatment has run its course, you will notice that the appearance of cellulite is reduced and the "puffiness" caused by the oedema has been replaced by firm, solid skin. Patients also report that their skin looks better and healthier, which can boost your self confidence and pride in your body. It's long lasting results in reducing cellulite can stay with you for upwards of six months.
The treatment process also helps your lymphatic system, the "cleanup crew" clear out liquids and toxins from the fat cells. The tissue permeability is increased, so they can travel to those cells more quickly, removing toxins and clearing out dead cells.
By following our recommended treatment plan, we can kill fat cells forever, reduce the appearance of cellulite, gain firmer skin tone, and help your body look and feel better through the Fire, Ice, and Tightening treatments at Trilogy Medical Center.
