If you have a few problem areas that tend to cling to fat, you are far from alone. Diet and exercise sometimes prove ineffective on certain parts of the body. This is where CoolSculpting® can be the answer. This non-surgical and non-invasive treatment is changing the way people contour their curves and it may be just the thing you have been waiting for.
How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® destroys fat cells. It accomplishes this by cooling them down to a temperature they cannot survive at. This is why this procedure is sometimes referred to as fat freezing. Once the fat cells have gotten cold enough, they freeze and crystallize. This leaves them unable to store fat. Not only will they release their current contents, but they will also be incapable of storing fat in the future.
Once the fat has been released, the body steps in and begins to flush it out. This is a gradual process that takes a few months to complete. Most people see results weeks after their treatment. You can expect your peak improvements months after treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
This treatment was not designed to treat obesity. If you still have a long way to go to get to your goal weight, a different treatment may be more appropriate. CoolSculpting® is designed to target those problem areas that hold onto stubborn pockets of fat. It is commonly used in the following areas:
- Bra fat
- Thighs (inner and outer)
- Upper arms
- Banana roll (underneath the buttocks)
- Double chin
The first step in the process is to visit us for a consultation. This is where we can determine if this is the right treatment option for you and create a personalized treatment plan.
What to Expect During a CoolSculpting® Treatment
You will be able to recline in a comfortable position when having this treatment done. The device will be placed on the target area where it will begin to cool down the area. You may feel intense cold in the beginning but this sensation typically fades within minutes. Many people take their appointment as an opportunity to catch up on their reading or responding to their emails. Some people even fall asleep!
