The state-of-the-art CoolSculpting system uses cold temperatures to freeze and destroy fat cells. This fat-reduction therapy is ideal for those who have tried dieting and exercise, but are unable to shed weight from problematic areas.
In treatment sessions that last about one hour, CoolSculpting will break down fat cells and help your immune system expel fat from the body.
CoolSculpting therapy is ideal for any part of the body where stubborn fat pockets generally build up, like:
- Love handles
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that can remove up to 20 percent of fat from a targeted area. This procedure uses extremely cold temperatures to freeze fat cells, triggering their natural death.
Over the course of several weeks, the immune system continues to attack the dead fat cells, ultimately expelling them from the body. You can expect to start seeing noticeable results as soon as three weeks after the procedure. Full results from CoolSculpting therapy are generally noticeable within 90 days.
Benefits of CoolSculpting include:
- No incisions, no needles and no scars after treatment
- Absolutely no downtime
- Targeted fat cells are permanently eliminated, reducing the risk of weight re-gain
CoolSculpting is an alternative to more invasive corrective procedures like liposuction and is FDA-approved for fat reduction. Following a CoolSculpting session, you will be able to return to work or your exercise routine immediately.
What to Expect
During your CoolSculpting treatment session, your weight loss doctor will place a cool compress on the skin to avoid pinching. The targeted fat pocket will be drawn into a bulge by the device’s cooling panels with a firm tug.
Your skin will feel the coldness of the panels for the first few minutes before growing numb to the sensation as fat cells beneath the skin are crystallized. For most targeted areas, treatment sessions are only one hour long. Multiple areas can be treated with this therapy. During the treatment session, many people choose to read, work on their laptop or fall asleep.
CoolSculpting is ideal for those who have used other medical weight loss methods to lose weight, and need help to eliminate stubborn, lingering fat pockets. When combined with a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, CoolSculpting can help you reach your weight loss goal and keep weight off long-term.
