Enjoy a slimmer, more toned body, with a little help from our experienced team. CoolSculpting sessions are now available to help you prepare for a summer of fun without fat. This procedure removes unwanted fat from problem areas of the body by using extreme cold to freeze and kill fat cells. This procedure is noninvasive and has little to no downtime. The procedure is relatively simple and the following information outlines what to expect.
Initial consultation. We begin with an initial consultation so that you can understand the procedure and let us know what you would like to accomplish. Sometimes, we can perform the procedure the same day as the consultation.
There are several approved areas for the procedure. Coolsculpting lists the body areas that are approved for freezing fat cells. These areas are the chin, love handles, abdomen, inner thighs, outer thighs, chin, back fat, bra fat, fat under the buttocks, upper arms, or area below the jawline.
The placement of the applicator. You and the doctor will decide together the area of treatment. Once the area is chosen, a clear gel pad is placed on the area to protect the skin.
Before the procedure. Prior to the procedure, avoid anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin.
During the procedure. During the treatment you'll be able to read, answer emails, or chat with a friend. After the applicator is detached, your provider will do a brief massage on the area(s) to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. That's it! Most patients experience little to no downtime after treatment.
CoolSculpting essentially kills a number of fat cells, so there are less of them in your body. Fat cells treated by CoolSculpting become a waste product that your lymphatic system eliminates from the body forever. These fat cells do not regenerate. Goodbye fat!
After the procedure. There may be redness and numbness after the procedure. You can wear compression garments or use hot or cold compresses to relieve any discomfort. Stretching the area can also alleviate pressure. You can expect to see results as soon as four weeks with the most dramatic results in two months.
Coolsculpting offers a non-invasive fat loss alternative to liposuction and other surgical procedures. Clients who have dieted and exercised but still struggle with unwanted fat can take advantage of this procedure to get the results they seek.
