If you want to say goodbye to stubborn pockets of body fat without invasive surgical procedures or potentially damaging lasers, say hello to CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is the innovative way to eliminate unwanted areas of fat without needles, anesthesia or downtime. This revolutionary process uses a special cooling device to target fat cells, freezing them to extinction.
Who is CoolSculpting For?
CoolSculpting is safe for nearly any patient, men and women, who wants to eliminate isolated pockets of fat and achieve a leaner body contour. This procedure can be used to treat the following areas:
- Mid-section and abdomen
- Hips and thighs
- Upper and lower back
- Upper arms
The procedure is not recommended as a weight loss procedure, so patients should ensure their weight is within the average range before scheduling a CoolSculpting procedure.
How does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that takes approximately one hour to complete. A handheld device delivers cooling to the area of fat, freezing fat cells. The cells are eventually eliminated through the body’s natural processes, leaving smoother, firmer skin in their place.
CoolSculpting is a comfortable procedure that allows patients to read, work on their laptop or listen to music during treatment. After the procedure, some patients experience mild redness or irritation at the treatment site, which subsides within hours after the procedure. Most patients return to work and regular activities as soon as their treatment is complete.
What about Results?
Patients can see visible fat reduction immediately after a CoolSculpting session. Results continue to improve throughout the weeks following, as the body works to eliminate the treated fat cells. Studies have shown CoolSculpting can erase approximately 25% of body fat through non-invasive treatment and natural body processes. Patients will find clothing begins to fit better and the treated area looks visibly smaller.
The majority of patients achieve desired results in a single CoolSculpting treatment session. However, some will require more than one treatment to sufficiently reduce fat and achieve the desired body contour. Your physician will discuss the procedure at the consultation, as well as recommend a specific number of treatment sessions to give you the best possible results in your fat reduction efforts. CoolSculpting results are considered permanent, as long as a healthy weight is maintained after the procedure.
