What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is one of the most in-demand body contouring solutions available today. The innovative technology targets and destroys fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues wholly intact and healthy. The entire procedure is completed without needles or incisions and uses two comfortable panels placed against the skin of the treatment area.
Once the panels are placed, they lightly suction up fatty soft tissue to deliver treatment. During the procedure, fat cells are exposed to freezing temperatures. After less than an hour, fat cells undergo cryolipolysis, or crystallization. The treated cells eventually die and are naturally expelled from the body. Surrounding nerves, skin cells, and other tissues are left undamaged, meaning less trauma and downtime and minimized discomfort and bruising.
After their procedure, patients will notice a slimming effect and reduction of bumpy fat pockets in treatment areas. Results can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to take full effect. Fat deposits are less likely to return, so treated areas usually stay slim. Results are typically long lasting and can be further enhanced with regular exercise and a healthy diet. For our patients who want to achieve more dramatic results or are treating a slightly larger problem area, follow-up treatments may be recommended.
Am I a Good Candidate?
During your initial visit, you will undergo a thorough evaluation to determine if CoolSculpting® is right for you. Despite its widespread popularity, CoolSculpting® is not for everyone. The procedure will not render results as dramatic as surgical fat removal, like traditional liposuction, can achieve. It can, however, be combined with a variety of supplement body contouring services for an even smoother, slimmed-down effect.
CoolSculpting® is not for extremely obese patients or patients who have a large amount of excess skin as a result of massive weight loss. Good candidates have maintained a stable weight for some time, but have been unable to smooth problem areas through healthy lifestyle habits.
