CoolSculpting has arrived and offers Iowans the chance to smooth away that extra holiday bulk without incisions, anesthesia or downtime!
The Magic of Freezing Fat
CoolSculpting works on a concept known as cryolipolysis. This method delivers concentrated cooling to the treatment area, which literally freezes and destroys the fat cells underneath the skin’s surface. The frozen cells are gradually eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system while the treated area becomes noticeably leaner and smoother. CoolSculpting is an effective method for eliminating isolated deposits of fat that will not respond to your diet and exercise efforts.
Comfortable Procedure, No Downtime
During your one-hour CoolSculpting treatment, you will be comfortable enough to answer emails, read or even nap. The device is affixed to the treatment area, delivering focused cooling and gentle suction to freeze-away the fat. Some people may feel a slightly uncomfortable sensation of cold at the beginning of the procedure until their body adapts to the temperature. Once the CoolSculpting treatment is over, you can return to your regular activities without any visible signs you just had a cosmetic treatment.
Whittle Away Inches
CoolSculpting will help you whittle away inches from your abdomen, hips and thighs. Most patients will see positive results after their very first treatment, which will continue to improve over time. You will likely need a series of treatment sessions to achieve your full results. Once you have achieved your ideal body contour, your results will be long-lasting as long as you maintain a healthy weight after the procedure.
Other Treatment Spots
The popularity of the CoolSculpting procedure has spurred additional innovations that allow us to use the device on other areas of the body as well. Smaller applicators now let us deliver the same effective cooling to more delicate treatment areas like under the chin and underneath the upper part of the arms. No matter where you want to see a bit of slimming, we can probably tailor your CoolSculpting procedure to meet those needs.

While the results of CoolSculpting can be impressive, they do not happen overnight. Often, it takes many weeks or even months to reach your desired results. For this reason, it is a good idea to begin your CoolSculpting sessions as soon as possible so you can be enjoying a visibly leaner body contour by the time you are ready to pull out your bathing suit this summer.
