WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING®?
CoolSculpting® is a new way to target problem areas by freezing fat cells. This is not a solution for potential gastric bypass surgery candidates. However, this is an alternative for those who would like a non-invasive approach to body sculpting, especially in those areas that don’t seem to ever go away. CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved fat reduction device that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells. CoolSculpting® is designed for spot treatment of areas many people struggle with that diet and exercise will not always address such as, love handles, back fat and stomach fat.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR COOLSCULPTING®?
A consultation with one of our board-certified physicians will determine which areas of the body will be targeted. While many patients are satisfied with one visit, you and one of our physicians can determine the best treatment options during your consultation.
During the procedure, your physician will gently cool the area to a temperature that causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, but does not harm the surrounding tissue.
A typical CoolSculpting® session lasts 60 minutes and because this is a non-surgical procedure you can typically return to your normal activity level immediately. During the procedure clients are able to read, work on laptops or just relax, it’s that simple.
BEFORE AND AFTER COOLSCULPTING®
DIET, EXERCISE & COOLSCULPTING®
We always encourage our clients to eat a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly, but the technology behind CoolSculpting® does something diet and exercise can’t, it eliminates fat cells entirely. If the fat cells no longer exist, then they can’t continue to grow.
The science and technology behind CoolScuplting® is the idea that you can permanently remove fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue using a Cryolipolysis®, the FDA-approved device which the CoolSculpting® procedure is based around.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM COOLSCULPTING®?
You can start to see changes as early as three weeks after the procedure. Typically, you will see the biggest results in four to six months as the dead fat cells are being naturally flushed from your body over time.
