Due to the effects of aging and genetics, some people have to deal with stubborn pockets of fat that refuse to go away despite diet and exercise. While these stubborn pockets of fat are nearly impossible to eliminate, surgical treatment might seem too drastic of a solution.
For those seeking a nonsurgical treatment, CoolSculpting® has arrived as the latest, state-of-the-art method of fat reduction. Without a single incision, CoolSculpting® can permanently eliminate these problem areas during the course of a few short, relaxing treatments. Gradually, your body will transform into a sleeker, more svelte figure.
CoolSculpting® works through a mechanism called fat freezing; using low temperatures that are cold enough to freeze fat but not surrounding tissues, fat freezing can specifically target fat for elimination. These fat cells crystalize, killing them, and the fat cells are naturally flushed from the body. These fat cells cannot return or continue to accumulate, so the results are permanent.
Because of the remarkable mechanism of fat freezing, CoolSculpting® only targets the necessary tissue, resulting in a comfortable treatment that requires no downtime or recovery.
CoolSculpting® is versatile enough to be used on a wide variety of areas: the double chin, abdomen, bra fat, back fat, beneath the buttocks, and thighs. While amazing results will appear as soon as 3 weeks after only one treatment, you might need more treatments to get the perfect figure you desire*. The most remarkable CoolSculpting® results often appear 2 months after a treatment*.
The CoolSculpting® Treatment
Your CoolSculpting® treatment will be a relaxing, comfortable experience. You’ll get to spend the duration of your treatment in a reclining position, while a gel pad and a CoolSculpting® applicator is applied to the treatment area. You will then feel a nice cooling sensation and gentle tugging as the cooling panels on the applicators get to work. During your treatment, you can relax and fill your time by reading, listening to music, or even napping during the short procedure.
Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® has some amazing fat freezing results, but it is important to emphasize that it is not a weight loss procedure. The perfect candidate for CoolSculpting® is someone who is relatively close to their ideal weight while still struggling to remove stubborn pockets of fat. The perfect candidate should also have great skin elasticity, so that the skin can bounce back easily after fat reduction. If you happen to have too much excess skin or fatty tissue, surgery might be recommended.
CoolSculpting® is an incredibly safe and comfortable procedure, so it requires no downtime or recovery period after the treatments. Some patients report swelling, bruising, or redness, but this is temporary and should disappear in a few days.
