What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses controlled cooling to crystallize and destroy stubborn bulges.
Popular treatment areas include the abdomen, flanks, hips, thighs, back, bra line, banana roll, upper arms, and double chin.
What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment?
Non-surgical fat removal with CoolSculpting is a safe, effective, and virtually painless process.
It starts by applying a cool gel to the treatment area and then securing one of CoolSculpting’s seven treatment applicators.
Most applicators suction the fatty tissue between two cooling panels and deliver patented cooling technology. This freezes subcutaneous fat cells and causes them to undergo apoptosis.
Most treatments take 35 minutes and conclude with removal of the applicator and a manual massage to break-up crystals and aid in lymphatic drainage.
How Soon Can You See CoolSculpting Results?
Following a CoolSculpting treatment, patients can note visible fat reduction and slimming within four-t0-six weeks. You can typically see final results by eight-to-12 weeks.
How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?
Because CoolSculpting actually destroys and eliminates fat cells, fat reduction is permanent as long as individuals maintain a stable weight and healthy lifestyle.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Ideal CoolSculpting candidates are healthy adults who are at or near their ideal shape and have isolated pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise.
