Non-surgical treatments for body sculpting are everywhere. Treatments for fat reduction, skin tightening, and even cellulite reduction promise results without liposuction. While liposuction can still provide excellent results for many patients, more and more are interested in non-surgical body sculpting treatments. In this article, we’ll explore two different body sculpting treatments we offer in our Indianapolis dermatology and aesthetics practice: CoolSculpting for fat reduction combined with Z-Wave for cellulite removal.
Combination Body Sculpting Procedures at the LASSI
CoolSculpting is the #1 non-surgical fat reduction procedure in the United States. At the LASSI, we provide this treatment for all FDA-approved treatment areas, including the inner and outer thighs and beneath the buttocks (banana rolls). However, many patients who desire fat reduction in the upper legs also want to reduce the appearance of cellulite. As you may have guessed, CoolSculpting does not treat cellulite.
Enter Z-Wave. This cellulite reduction treatment uses a handheld massage device to gently and comfortably break up pockets of gas and fat strands that cause skin dimpling. In addition to cellulite reduction, Z-Wave can also improve your visible results following a CoolSculpting treatment.
How does this combination body sculpting procedure work?
CoolSculpting freezes fat using cryolipolysis. This kills the excess fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. Once the fat cells are frozen and break apart, they are absorbed and filtered out through the body’s lymphatic system. Following any CoolSculpting treatment, the area is massaged to help speed up the breakdown of frozen fat cells. This helps improve visible results in the treatment area more quickly.
Adding on the Z-Wave treatment, the handheld pulsing device designed to break up pockets of cellulite can also be used to more effectively break up the frozen fat cells. This provides more precise, faster results. On top of that, the cellulite in that area is also broken up to reveal a smoother skin surface.
Can liposuction treat unwanted fat and cellulite in a single procedure?
While liposuction can help improve the appearance of cellulite to a small degree, many patients will still benefit from an additional cellulite treatment following the procedure. This will improve overall body sculpting results. Once you’ve healed, our providers at LASSI Skin can give you a relaxing massage experience with the Z-Wave cellulite reduction device.

The dreaded “bat wings.” Do you have them? If your upper arms have a noticeable sag despite the number of bicep curls you complete at the gym, then consider trying CoolSculpting for arms. The #1 non-surgical alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting gained national and international recognition for its ability to eliminate belly fat and love handles and has quickly grown to accommodate more treatment areas. Arm fat is just the latest in a series of treatment areas that have been FDA-approved, and we’re pleased to announce that the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana was the FIRST medical practice in Indiana to offer the new applicator for arms. We’re excited to tell you all about this new treatment, so keep reading to learn more and find out if CoolSculpting is right for you!
CoolSculpting for Arms: How does CoolSculpting work?
While liposuction and brachioplasty surgeries have been around for years, CoolSculpting for arms is a new treatment option for the smooth, toned arms you’ve always wanted without surgery. FDA approved CoolSculpting uses advanced cooling technology to freeze away unwanted fat just about anywhere on the body. With the new CoolSculpting for arms applicator, we are able to target smaller areas of the body and complete a treatment in only 35 minutes; this is much faster than with larger treatment areas that typically take 1 hour to perform.
CoolSculpting is a system designed to break down unwanted fat almost anywhere on the body. The FDA approved it for those who have a Body Mass Index, or BMI, of 30 or less. When you have a CoolSculpting treatment, it can minimize the appearance of stubborn fat bulges that won’t respond to diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment option that takes advantage of a technique known as cryolipolysis. With this technique, your provider freezes the fat beneath the areas of your body that you want to be treated. This destroys fat cells permanently. Once frozen, fat cells die off, and your body’s lymphatic system eliminates them.
It usually takes a few treatments to see results, but most people report that CoolSculpting triggers a noticeable decrease in unwanted bulge. In addition, these fat cells will never come back, which means that you’ll enjoy long-term results without facing surgery or needles.
Even people who eat properly and exercise have areas on their body that maintain sections of fat. This is often hereditary. Before your CoolSculpting treatment, you will have a consultation with our team to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
