Many people struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. Certain areas of the body are very reluctant to respond to good old diet and exercise. This is where CoolSculpting® can come in. This revolutionary treatment is completely non-surgical yet can give you dramatic results as you freeze fat. It takes only an hour or your time (or less!) and will not take you away from your normal life.
What Is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is the process of fat freezing. Fat cells can only live at certain temperatures. When you have this treatment, the fat cells in the area are precisely targeted with the cooling pad and then lowered to a temperature where they crystallize. Once they have crystallized, they will die and your body will flush out their contents.
Your body no longer creates new fat cells after you reach adulthood and will make no attempt to “heal” the ones that are affected by CoolSculpting®. This means you can achieve permanent results! It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, however, or you risk developing new problem areas.
CoolSculpting® can be done almost anywhere that you are struggling to lose weight. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, flanks, back, “bra fat,” upper arms, “banana roll” (underneath the buttocks), and underneath the chin.
Why Choose CoolSculpting®?
This treatment has absolutely exploded in popularity recently. There are many reasons that people love it so much, including:
- It is completely non-surgical and non-invasive
- Results develop over time and appear very gradual
- Improvements can be permanent with a healthy lifestyle
- It is safe and approved by the FDA
- It can target many of the most common problem areas
- It can be very easy to freeze fat
What to Expect with CoolSculpting® Treatments
A consultation is done to determine your exact goals and to create a treatment plan. This is where we can determine if more than one session may be beneficial for you. The treatment itself is considered very relaxing. You can recline while the cooling pad does all of the work. Many people take this opportunity to read, listen to music, play on their phone, etc.
After treatment, you can immediately resume your normal daily activities. Your results will develop over time as your body flushes out the fat cells and their contents. Visible results are typically seen after 3 weeks. Peak results will be reached 2-3 months after treatment.
