What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a true non-invasive, clinically proven procedure to selectively reduce unwanted fat cells through an innovative patented cooling method. Cleared by the FDA, CoolSculpting gently cools the areas to be treated to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. The results are dramatic and remain stable.
What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?
- Procedure is non-invasive and requires no downtime. Patient can resume daily activities including work and exercise, immediately following the treatment.
- CoolSculpting is completely safe. Patients sit comfortably during the procedure and can use their laptop, watch TV or even nap during the procedure. Our physician is on site at all times.
- It’s convenient. Depending on how many areas are being treated during one day, patients should expect to be in the office an hour for each area treated. Many patients come during their lunch hour and can go back to work right after.
- The results are significant. Clinical studies conducted by the developers of CoolSculpting, ZELTIQ Aesthetics, patients are seeing about a 20-25% reduction in fat in the areas treated after just one treatment. Results will be seen within 2-3 months post procedure. Some may opt for additional treatments in the same area.
What does the CoolSculpting procedure involve?
To begin the procedure, a non-invasive applicator that has already been fit to size is placed on the area to be treated. The system slowly draws in the tissue to be treated and begins delivering a controlled amount of cooling specifically targeted to the underlying fat, leaving the surface of the skin unaffected. The increased amount of cooling is brought to a certain temperature to begin the natural removal of fat cells.
Is it effective?
The results are incomparable to other fat reduction techniques. Patients start to see a result as soon as 2 to 3 weeks following the procedure, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of 2 to 3 months. The results are natural-looking without the recovery time of surgical procedures. Patients will see permanent results as long as proper diet and exercise regimen remain constant.
Who is a good candidate?
CoolSculpting is not intended to replace a healthy diet and/or an exercise routine for overweight patients. The best candidates for this procedure are those individuals who are close to their ideal body weight, eat well and exercise regularly, but have pockets of fat they can’t get rid of (commonly known as “muffin tops or love handles”). This procedure is excellent for patients who want surgery-like results, but do not want to go under the knife and experience the downtime.
