What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
The CoolSculpting procedure is a new, non-invasive, non-surgical method clinically proven to freeze and destroy fat using a controlled device. During the procedure, the doctor gently pinches the fatty area between the CoolSculpting applicator arms. The applicator then cools the area to a temperature that causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, but does not harm surrounding tissue. A typical CoolSculpting session lasts approximately 60 minutes.
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
Clinical studies have shown that the CoolSculpting procedure provides noticeable, measurable fat reduction over the course of two to four months post procedure. Additional procedures may be administered two to four months after the initial procedure to achieve greater fat reduction.
Candidates for a CoolSculpting procedure may be experiencing modest-size fat bulges that are not easily reduced through diet and exercise. In general, you may be a good CoolSculpting candidate if:
- you are physically healthy, at a stable weight and relatively fit;
- you are seeking spot reduction for specific areas of fat;
- you have realistic expectations;
- you wish to avoid a surgical procedure; and
- you are a non-smoker.
Benefits of a CoolSculpting Procedure
If the thought of having major surgery to improve your physical appearance is daunting, the CoolSculpting procedure may be your method of choice. Listed below are some benefits of the new CoolSculpting procedure.
- CoolSculpting offers less pain, risk, and recovery time than surgical procedures (e.g. Liposuction).
- Results can last at least six months after the CoolSculpting treatment. Longer-term studies have not yet been completed.
- The controlled cooling of the CoolSculpting procedure targets and eliminates only fat cells.
CoolSculpting Procedure & Recovery
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.
The completely non-invasive procedure allows immediate return to normal activities such as work or exercise. Redness may appear in the treated area, and may last from a few minutes to a few hours. Some localized bruising or swelling may occur, which clears within a few weeks. Many patients experience a temporary dulling of sensation in the treated area, lasting one to eight weeks.
A CoolSculpting Procedure Will Not:
- Serve as a substitute for massive weight loss or an appropriate exercise program
- Replace treatment for obesity; instead, it is designed for spot treatment of “problem” areas such as love handles, back fat, bra rolls, and stomach rolls.
