CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses a unique cooling technology to essentially freeze targeted fat cells and eliminate them from the body. This treatment is effective for both men and women who have a specific area of fat that just won’t budge despite diet and exercise. The treatment is safe and effective. It’s been approved by the FDA for the elimination of visible bulges of fat in various areas of the body.
The patented cooling technology of CoolSculpting® is based on science. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other types of tissue cells. Therefore, this specific temperature can be used to safely destroy the fat cells without harming the tissue cells surrounding them. The frozen fat cells are eliminated from the body through a natural process of metabolism that occurs gradually over time. There are a number of benefits to this innovative form of fat reduction.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
This treatment is quite popular because it requires no incisions or surgery. This means recovery time is nonexistent. A session of CoolSculpting® is convenient and is performed in the comfort of our office. Results look natural because they occur gradually over time. While some results can be seen in just weeks, it can take multiple months for the destroyed fat to be completely eliminated from the body. It is important to note that this procedure is not meant for weight loss. It is designed for stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Some people are better candidates for CoolSculpting® than others. You should be in relatively good health and understand the type of results you can expect. Candidates should have a specific bulge of fat that they are concerned with. Various areas can be effectively treated, including the love handles, inner and outer thighs, abdomen and double chin. The number of treatments you will need depends upon the size of the treatment area and the amount of fat to be targeted. Our practitioner can discuss this with you and create a personalized treatment plan during your consultation.
