Coolsculpting® is a new FDA approved non-surgical fat reduction treatment to eliminate stubborn subcutaneous fat resistant to exercise and diet. It uses a fat freezing technique through a cooling panel to freeze and then kill the fat cells permanently excreting them from the body. Results are minimally noticeable within 3 months after the procedure with permanent results showing between 3 – 4 months.
Coolsculpting® gets rid of unwanted fat and also aims to give you your desired body shape. The cooling panels are aligned to fit your body shape and contour per your needs.
This is a very easy non-invasive technique which takes only one hour for the procedure. You will not require any anesthesia before and during the procedure, allowing this to truly be a “lunch hour procedure.”
HOW does it work?
You and your physician will work closely to decide on the area to be targeted by fat reduction and a gel pad and applicator will be applied. The Coolsculpting® applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells. During this procedure, you can read your favorite book or magazine, check your email, or even take a nap.
IS the method safe?
The Coolsculpting® applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells. Coolsculpting® systems are the controlled cooling devices, which are designed with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, the system will shut down automatically. Therefore, the method is absolutely safe. Also, the Coolsculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to normal activities afterwards a typically easy process. You may even return to your work after the procedure is over.
HOW does Coolsculpting® eliminate stubborn fat?
The Coolsculpting® procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Which areas can be treated using Cool Sculpting?
The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, making you look perfectly sculpted from every angle.
Should I worry for any side effects?
No, not much. At the most you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. During the procedure, you may feel some deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. After the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Many patients do experience redness in the treated areas for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed. In rare cases, this redness may persist up to 2 weeks, but it will completely resolve itself.
