What is CoolSculpting™?
CoolSculpting™ is a revolutionary non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses a precisely controlled cooling method called cryolipolysis to target, cool and eliminate fat cells without damaging neighboring tissue. Two to four months following the treatment, the crystallized fat cells break down and they are naturally flushed from your body. We have the new CoolSculpting™ Advantage applicators that treat 20% more surface area, provide shorter treatment times and increase patient comfort during and after the procedure.
What will my results be from the CoolSculpting™ procedure?
The CoolSculpting™ procedure is ideal for patients who are of ideal body weight. On average, each CoolSculpting™ procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reduction with additional procedures. Some patients though find that one treatment fully addresses their goals.
What can I expect during the CoolSculpting™ treatment?
During the CoolSculpting™ procedure, the hand piece will be positioned on your treatment area. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. As the cooling goes to work in the first few minutes, you’ll feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. You are seated or lying down during the procedure. Many patients spend this time reading, watching television or even taking a nap.
Can I return to normal activities after the CoolSculpting™ procedure?
Yes! The CoolSculpting™ procedure is completely non-invasive so you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness in the treated area but this is temporary.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. Your body flushes fat cells and continues to do so for up to six months following the CoolSculpting™ procedure.
Are the results permanent?
When you have your CoolSculpting™ procedure, the treated fat cells will be eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.
