Nicole, a 29 year-old Madison, WI resident, was in search of a pre-wedding beauty plan that would help her look her wedding-best but also positively shape her body for the rest of her life. After stumbling upon Quintessa Aesthetic Center’s Middleton location, she decided to give us a call.
“A wedding is a huge milestone in someone’s life,” says Nicole, a full-time global sourcing manager at a large clothing/home décor retailer and part-time yoga teacher. “I want to look my best. If these procedures weren’t around, I think a lot of people would be fine with how they look. But this is like icing on the cake.”
After meeting with Nicole for her initial consult, Teresa, Non-Surgical Body Coordinator at Quintessa’s Madison location, determined our non-surgical CoolSculpting and Emsculpt treatments would be the perfect fit.
“I’m excited to talk about this. I don’t want other people to feel ashamed about getting something like this done.”
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to permanently remove fat.
Emsculpt, on the other hand, is the only non-surgical body contouring treatment in the world that simultaneously builds muscle and burns fat cells. The treatment utilizes state-of-the-art High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology causing the muscles to contract in a way that’s unachievable through normal motion and exercise.
“It’s not just for celebrities; any person can do it.”
When we combine these two non-surgical procedures, they work together to give patients more muscle tone and permanent fat loss.
As Dr. Andrew Campbell puts it, “What CoolSculpting struggles with, Emsculpting is great at. Emsculpt helps with abdominals and the butt area; and it will improve with building the muscle and reducing some of the fat. CoolSculpting can do the rest, from the back to the sides to the arms in terms of helping with fat reduction.”
Nicole, who had CoolSculpting focused on her sides and Emsculpting directly on her abdomen, said both procedures have helped her lose about 10 pounds and tighten her waistline for a slimmer shape.
“For me, it’s not that I needed the treatment,” explains Nicole. “I’m very happy and comfortable in my skin, but this has given me a definite confidence boost. It’s great to have an option to shape my body before my wedding. My wedding is one day, but what I’m doing will last a long time. I’m going to reap these benefits for a very long time.”
There’s a growing trend in brides-to-be having plastic surgery or aesthetic procedures done before wedding day. In fact, a study from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery says weddings are the number one special event cited by women as a deciding factor in undergoing an aesthetic procedure.
“When I saw the results, I was very excited.”
Dr. Andrew Campbell has seen several hundred patients who are brides-to-be and countless more who are mothers of the bride or groom. He recommends brides-to-be give themselves several months of lead time before their wedding to have CoolSculpting and/or Emsculpt procedures.
“Brides want the so-called perfect wedding and part of the wedding is that they look perfect,” says Dr. Campbell. “Brides spend a lot of time, energy and money on makeup and hair; and to spend time, energy and money to make them truly look better physically makes sense. It’s money well spent. Every time they look at those wedding photos, they’re going to say that they look fabulous.”
