CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction that can freeze away and remove stubborn fat bulges. Coolsculpting is an FDA approved, office procedure that can be done on different areas of the body. Clinical studies have shown an average 23% reduction in fat after the first visit.
The most commonly treated areas are the chin, abdomen, hips, inner or outer thighs, arms, and back. Ideal candidates are within 20-25 pounds of their ideal body weight and are able to maintain a stable weight. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the optimal result.
CoolSculpting® requires no anesthesia, sedation or incisions. You can immediately return to your normal work and fitness routine. CoolSculpting® is non-invasive “cold” technology. The technique uses cold to reduce fat cells through a process called “Cryolipolysis.” Following your treatment, the “frozen” fat cells immediately begin the process of dying, creating a localized inflammatory response allowing the body to naturally eliminate and dispose of the damaged fat cells over the next three months. Since fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells, the surrounding tissue is spared.
It is important to note that ideal candidates are in good shape but seeking a modest change. This fat-reduction technique will not take the place of an active lifestyle or healthy diet. During your consultation, we will help you determine if CoolSculpting® is right for you. Those seeking a more dramatic change may still benefit from traditional liposuction or a combination of treatments.
