CoolSculpting is FDA-Cleared to treat visible fat bulges in 9 areas of the body. Some common side effects include temporary numbness, discomfort, and swelling.
- WHAT IS COOLSCULPTING?
This non-surgical treatment uses cooling technology to freeze stubborn fat cells that have been resistant to exercise and diet. CoolSculpting is FDA approved and works to provide you with noticeable, natural results that are long-lasting. During your consultation with one of our specialists, we will discuss your sculpting goals and provide you with a realistic expectation of what this treatment can do for you. It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, and should only be used when diet and exercise have failed to remove pockets of stubborn fat.
- HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING WORK?
The cooling treatment works by targeting fat cells. Since these cells are more sensitive than the surrounding tissue, they freeze much faster, allowing just the stubborn area to be treated. This process is called cryolipolysis. From there the frozen fat cells die and are removed by the body’s natural clean-up process. One eliminated, it is difficult for these cells to return.
- WHEN CAN I SEE RESULTS?
Results will vary based on your treatment area and desired goal. The process of the body removing cells takes time, as will your outcome. Most patients begin to see results about three weeks following their first CoolSculpting session, with optimal results being seen after four to six months. Some people may need multiple treatments to reach their desired goal. The results tend to be long-lasting with the adoption of a healthy lifestyle.
- AM I A COOLSCULPTING CANDIDATE?
If you are near your goal weight with stubborn pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting may be for you.
