What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery. This clinically proven technique reduces stubborn fat in areas resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting gently cools select cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of these unwanted fat cells.
Developed in 2005, this technology is based on Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis)-the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat. As the primary nonsurgical procedure to reduce fat layers in problem areas, this treatment is commonly used to contour muffin tops, love handles and back fat.
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
Based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting effectively freezes fat cells in the targeted area. This promotes fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis. Best of all, this treatment works without causing scar tissue or damage to the skin, nerves or surrounding tissues.
How Soon Will I See Results From My Procedure?
Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months. It is important to note that your body will flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to six months after treatment.
Is Coolsculpting Right For Me?
Coolsculpting can be used to contour 9 areas of the body on both men and women. One session typically lasts between 35-75 minutes and 2 or more sessions will help you achieve best results. After treatment, patients and can observe up to 20-25% reduction in fat.
