CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that safely destroys fat cells by freezing them. This innovative, patented technology utilizes evenly applied cooling in order to eliminate the targeted fat cells without harming surrounding tissue. Patients love this approach because there is very little downtime, if any, required. Results can usually be seen after just one treatment.
How It Works
The CoolSculpting® process is based on science. Fat freezes at a higher temperature than other types of tissues. Therefore, the patented cooling technology used in this unique treatment effectively freezes the fat of the target area, while allowing the surrounding tissue to remain unaffected. Cryolipolysis is the technical name for the process, and it involves the crystallization of the fat cells, which are then removed naturally by the body’s own metabolic system.
Benefits of CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® offers a number of advantages, making it a cosmetic procedure that appeals to the majority of patients seeking targeted fat reduction. For starters, it’s the only fat freezing technology treatment cleared by the FDA. This should provide peace of mind regarding the safety of the procedure. It’s also proven to provide effective and natural-looking results. While you’ll be able to notice a slight difference right away, the majority of your results will occur over time as your body metabolizes the fat cells. Within months, you should see the biggest difference. This gradual method ensures your results will look natural.
CoolSculpting® is a comfortable and convenient option for those wanting to lose stubborn fat. Typical sessions don’t last very long, so you can schedule yours when it’s most convenient for you. The treatment itself feels like an initial blast of cold air which is then followed by dull pressure. Most patients find it to be comfortable.
Areas Treated with CoolSculpting®
Another benefit of CoolSculpting® is that it is incredibly versatile and can treat lots of different areas of the body. The stomach area is a popular target, as abdominal fat loss is difficult through diet and exercise. Other popular treatment sites include love handles on your sides and the thighs.
