CoolSculpting®

The Non-Surgical Way to Reduce Problem Fat

Whether it’s a muffin top, love handles, belly bulge, or even a double chin, many of us struggle with one or two problem areas where the fat doesn’t seem to go away despite a healthy lifestyle. With CoolSculpting, you could finally slim down that stubborn fat without having to undergo any surgery or downtime—simply freeze it and forget it.

How CoolSculpting Works?

If you’re eating right and exercising regularly, but are still having trouble with specific areas of fat, it’s often a problem with subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat is that stubborn layer of fat that sits just beneath the skin. Unlike visceral fat, which surrounds the organs and is lost with diet and exercise, subcutaneous is often resistant to traditional weight loss methods and can be extremely difficult to lose because of age and other factors.

CoolSculpting works by targeting these subcutaneous fat cells with a fat-killing method of controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis. During your CoolSculpting treatment, a fold of your skin is gently clamped within the curved CoolSculpting arm. A deep cooling sensation is then administered to the treatment area. This controlled cooling penetrates into the underlying fat cells, causing them to freeze and crystallize without harming your skin or surrounding tissue.

Over time, your body will naturally get rid of these dead fat cells, resulting in a slimming of the treated area and a beautifully natural-looking figure.

CoolSculpting Results and Recovery

The great thing about CoolSculpting is you will be able to resume the rest of your day without missing a thing. There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting. You may experience minimal discomfort, swelling, or redness, but this should fade rather quickly.

CoolSculpting treatments take just about an hour to perform depending on the size and location of your treatment site. We may recommend a series of multiple CoolSculpting sessions in order to achieve optimal fat reduction. You may notice improvements in your figure within just one month of your treatment, but as your body continues to flush out the dead fat cells, your results will only get better and better. Most patients will notice the biggest improvement about three months after their initial treatment.

With CoolSculpting, once the fat is gone, it will not come back. The fat cells that were killed off are gone for good. However, this does not make you invincible to weight gain. It is important you continue to live a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and good eating habits in order to maintain your new, slimmer figure.
