Even a strict diet and exercise program may not be enough to get rid of stubborn fat pockets. That’s when patients turn to our FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment called CoolSculpting to eliminate stubborn fat safely and effectively with little to no downtime. So how does this technology work? Here are some things to know about this non-surgical procedure:
You can take a nap while your fat is “frozen” away. During treatment, the device is positioned on the identified area and controlled cooling is applied. You can sit back and relax, read, watch TV or check your email while you wait. You will feel pressure and intense cold initially, but that dissipates.
Your body naturally processes and eliminates the “frozen” fat. Treated fat cells are crystallized, or frozen, and then die. Your body will then naturally process the fat and eliminates the dead cells, revealing a better contour. And once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.
The treatment is customized to address your specific problem areas. It may take more than one session to achieve optimal results. Your treatment plan will be tailed to your body, goals and budget.
CoolSculpting is safe and effective. The procedure is FDA-cleared for freezing fat under the chin and along the jawline, at the bra line and along the back and upper arm, around the love handles, abdomen and thighs, and underneath the buttocks.
It is not a weight-loss treatment. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction but it’s not for weight loss. It’s specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise alone.
You can go back to work and normal activities right away. The CoolSculpting procedure is non-surgical, with little downtime.
You may see results as soon as three weeks after treatment. The most dramatic results come after two months. Your body will continue to flush out the dead fat cells for up to six months after treatment.
What if I gain weight after treatment? Many patients feel more motivated to take better care of themselves after treatment. If you gain weight, you may gain it all over your body evenly, not just in the areas that were treated.
